Game 105, 2022

Dodgers at Giants, 12:45 PM PDT, TV: MLBN (out-of-market only), NBCS BA, SPNLA

LHP Clayton Kershaw (7-3, 2.66 ERA) goes for the Dodgers and RHP Jakob Junis (4-2, 2.78 ERA) goes for the Giants. Kershaw took a 3-2 lead into the sixth inning of his last start but then gave up four consecutive hits and the Giants took the lead for good. Junis was 0-1 for July.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1908 In Brooklyn, the last-place Cardinals blank the Brooklyn Superbas (Dodgers), 3-0. The entire Washington Park contest is played with just one ball.
  • 1941 Mickey Owens becomes the first catcher to handle three foul pop ups in one frame. The Brooklyn backstop’s third inning defense contributes to the Dodgers’ 11-6 victory over New York at Ebbets Field.
  • 1942 In a military relief game at the Polo Grounds, which will be the last war-time twilight game played, Pee Wee Reese’s grand slam in the top of the ninth, which puts the Dodgers up 5-1, doesn’t count, because of the 9:10 pm government curfew. The game ends up as a 1-1 tie with the Giants.
  • 1948 Ernie Harwell, filling in for Red Barber, who is recovering from a bleeding ulcer, calls his first major league game as the Dodgers beat the Cubs at Ebbets Field, 5-4. To obtain the future Hall of Fame broadcaster, Brooklyn general manager Branch Rickey trades minor league catcher Cliff Draper to the Atlanta Crackers.

  1. Rox have taken a 6-0 lead over the Paddies after 4-1/2 at The Litterbox. Recently extended ace Musgrove gives up all the runs.

  2. In Anaheim today, the Angles have hit six dingers, and trail the Atléticos 8-6 in the eighth.

  3. I kinda like how each game the San Fran fans got a glimmer of hope in the 9th inning and started their “Beat LA” chant. How’d that work out for you friends?

    • It only made sense the first time: Celtics losing to 76ers and their fans wishing 76ers well for championship series against the Lakers.

  4. Kimbrel actually has a pretty good FIP at around 2.00. BB up a little bit up compared to career and K a little bit down. Dingers only at 0.3. Big thing are hits at 9.7, almost twice career levels.

      • Possibly, though I hope not. He’s a tenacious competitor, so I doubt he’s ready to give up at this point.

    • He’s pretty fast but, with nobody out, you hold him. To give credit where credit is due, the Gnats uncharacteristically played that perfectly.

    • He came here it get it fixed, it seems. Doc was saying his recent problems are apparently mechanical and that the hitting coaches would work with him

      • Fastest player to 100 dingers in MLB history. Had 38 last year. Hopefully they can fix his current problems.
