Game 145, 2022

Dodgers at Giants, 4:08 PM PDT, TV: ESPN

LHP Andrew Heaney (3-2, 2.84 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers while RHP Alex Cobb (6-6, 3.48 ERA) pitches for the Giants.

Today in Dodgers’ history, it’s the anniversary of the 4+1 game in 2006 (!):

  • 1964 Willie Davis broke a 16-inning, 3–3 stalemate between the Phillies and Dodgers at Dodger Stadium with a walk-off steal of home. With two outs in the bottom of the 16th, Davis reached on an infield single, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch by Philadelphia’s Jack Baldschun, then stole home on reliever Morrie Steevens.
  • 1984 The Tigers, with a 3-0 victory over Milwaukee, clinch the American League East title to become only the fourth team in major league history to lead from start to finish of a season. The 1923 Giants, 1927 Yankees, and the 1955 Dodgers also led their circuits from wire to wire.
  • 2006 The Dodgers, who are last in the National League in homers, hit four consecutive home runs in an inning when Jeff Kent, J.D. Drew, Russell Martin, and Marlon Anderson all go deep in the bottom of the ninth to tie the Padres, 9-9. The improbable feat, which had been accomplished only by the 1964 Twins, 1963 Indians, and the 1961 Braves, leads to Nomar Garciaparra’s walk-off two-run homer in the tenth and sole possession of first place when Los Angeles beat the Friars, 11-10.

      • Dodgers announced on Sunday.

        Gil Hodges, the longtime Dodgers first baseman and Mets manager who died in 1972, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in July, after his 35th time on the ballot. During the ceremony, Hodges’ daughter Irene gave a stirring speech, during which she mentioned Joan, who was not present.

        “Today, I am especially happy for my mother. When the call came from the Hall of Fame, and I heard, ‘This is Jane Forbes Clark, and it is my honor…,’ I began sobbing probably as much as I did when I lost my father,” Irene Hodges said during the speech. “I was so beyond happy for him, and even thrilled that my mom at 95 would be able to hear this news.”

        Joan Hodges still lived at the Brooklyn home she and Gil lived during his playing days, and where they raised their children.

  1. We’ve had rain off and on in the Bay Area today, but it looks as if they might get this one in. Blackout but no rainout.

  2. Washing clothes in the condo laundry room. It’s very strange to use a laundromat-equivalent after 50 years of using a washer/dryer in your own house. You have to buy a card which stores cash and then gets used in the machines — no quarters here.

  3. The beauty of this game is if Vesia slides out of this jam that Kimbrel will be on the mound in the ninth.

      • Used their challenge earlier on the Mookie stolen base call.

        Wikipedia: ” Under the current system, each manager is allotted one challenge per game, with additional challenges granted only if the previous one was successful.”
