Game 125, 2022

Dodgers at Marlins, 3:10 PM TV: BS Florida, SPNLA

The Dodgers give the ball to RHP Dustin May (1-0, 0.00 ERA) for his second start of the year. He’ll face the Marlins” RHP Sandy Alcantara (11-^, 2.19). May is just back from a tear of rehabilitation after surgery. Alcantara has been consistent all season.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1937 Dodger right-hander Fred Frankhouse holds the Reds hitless for 7.2 innings before a heavy downpour ends the Ebbets Field contest. The right-hander’s 5-0 victory will be one of the 31 “no-no’s” erased when MLB redefines a no-hitter in 1991 as a game in which a pitcher throws nine innings or more without giving up a hit.
  • 1951 Dodger right fielder Carl Furillo, in the top of the third inning in the team’s 5-0 victory over Pittsburgh at Ebbets Field, throws out Mel Queen by two feet at first base, after the Pirates pitcher had apparently singled into right field. The ‘Reading Rifle’ will lead the NL in assists for the second consecutive season, with opponents becoming increasingly reluctant to challenge the Brooklyn outfielder’s strong arm.
  • 1952 The Dodgers set the National League mark for consecutive games with a double play when they complete a twin killing in their twenty-third straight contest, a 10-5 loss to Chicago at Wrigley Field. The fifth inning 1-4-3 DP, pitcher Clyde King to second baseman Jackie Robinson to first baseman Gil Hodges, leaves Brooklyn two shy of the major league record.
  • 2005 Jeff Kent becomes the first player to hit 300 homers as a second baseman. The Dodger infielder, who surpassed Ryne Sandberg’s total of 277 last September, is the major league leader at this position, with Joe Gordon holding the American League record with 246 round-trippers.

  1. With results in from other games, Dodgers’ magic number over the Pads is now 16; over the Gnats, 10; over the Snakes, 8; and over the Rox, 1 (Denver pulled it off against Scherzer, so they could still theoretically tie the Dodgers).

    • Really hoping Puds lose and the Brewers win. It would be so cool if the Puds don’t make the playoffs. And the Gnats are probably going to finish under .500.

  2. Freddie picked off! Lost concentration thinking about now being two hits up on Trea? Or leaning too much to try to get an SB like Trea? Those two are competitive.

  3. These announcers talk more about the Dodgers than the Fish (2 are Fish announcers), though they do tend to talk about their pitchers.

  4. Fish are wearing unis that have Miami lettering like they are on the road or something.

  5. Trea getting a reminder of what it is like to play in Miami, not that Miami would offer him a big enough contract to sign him.

  6. So what do you folks think about USC and UCLA joining the Big Ten in a couple of years? Gonna be some good match ups.

      • As a Cal grad and a college football fan, I think this is a death knell for Pac-12 football.

        • Not having attended a football game since high school (when I had friends playing), I don’t much care. In fact, Cal should have torn down its football stadium instead of rebuilding it at an astronomical cost.

        • Pac 12 and Big 12 may need to merge. I am not crazy about the way college football is evolving. It is all driven by TV money now.

          • I am more a fan of college basketball, so negatives for me when universities realign for football consideration.

    • I always liked the PAC 8 and wasn’t at the time happy about adding the AZ schools or the last two schools. I liked the Pacific Coast league as well. Oh well.

  7., the club’s website, has yet to post anything about today’s game, not even the lineups.

  8. Like ESPN, Peacock will not even condescend to show us video highlights of their exclusive games.

    • As well, but wouldn’t be the first time that an early start has crept up on him. At least that’s what I am hoping.

      • I, too,am concerned about Link’s health, but regarding no posting yet today, it is 6:07 a.m. in Hawaii as I type this.

  9. Update: After the loss, the Dodgers are now at 87-38, 49 games over .500. Their magic
    number over the Pads remains 18; over the Gnats, 12; over the Snakes, still 9; and
    over the Rox, 2 (Denver could be mathematically eliminated today).

  10. The Dodgers are presently at 87-37, 50 games over .500. Their magic number over the Pads is 18; over the Gnats, 13; over the Snakes, 9; and over the Rox, 3.

  11. Not really impressed with Gallo. Trayce is hitting better against righties than Gallo and should be getting the majority of starts. Also Trayce is a better defender.

  12. Monday saying May was in wrong backup position. But only because the throw was so off line.
