Game 138, 2022

Dodgers at Padres, 5:40 PM PDT, TV: BSSD, SPNLA

The Dodgers give the ball to LHP Julio Urías (15-7, 2.29 ERA). He’ll face Blake Snell (6-8, 3.73 ERA) of the Padres.

On this day in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1974 Lou Brock ties and then breaks Maury Wills’s 12 year-old single season stolen base record with his 104th and 105th swipes. The Cardinal left fielder’s thievery against the Phillies doesn’t help when the Redbirds drop the Busch Stadium contest, 8-2.
  • 1992 Cardinals vice chairman Fred Kuhlman tells reporters that a “security check” had revealed serious issues involving the two out-of-state investors, Vince Piazza and Vincent N. Tirendi, part of the six-man group trying to buy the Giants and move the franchise to Florida. The candid reply to the press will cost baseball more than $6 million to settle a suit that includes a letter of apology from acting Commissioner Bud Selig to Vince Piazza, whose son Mike started his major league career with the Dodgers nine days before his father’s rejection by the MLB owners.

Lineups when available.

  1. Okay my friends, heading out for the evening. Bring it home for the Blue team! I’ll look forward to weighing in on the other side.

      Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
      I feel alive
      And the world, I’ll turn it inside out, yeah
      I’m floating around in ecstasy
      So (Don’t stop me now)
      (Don’t stop me)
      ‘Cause I’m having a good time
      Having a good time

  2. Not wanting to go out on a limb, but I think the Dodgers are going to make it to the playoffs this year.

  3. Good thing half the fans in the stadium are Dodger fans otherwise the fans leaving the game would be longer.

  4. Maybe, just maybe, it wasn’t such a bad move to take Snell out of the World Series game in the fifth inning.
