Game 12, 2023

Dodgers at Giants, 6:45 PM PDT, TV: NBCS BA, SPNLA

RHP Dustin May (1-0, 0.69 ERA) goes for the Dodgers and LHP Alex Wood (0-0, 3.00 ERA) goes for the Giants.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1912 Rube Marquard begins a nineteen-game consecutive winning streak by beating the Dodgers, 18-3, in a game which features 13 ground rule doubles hit by the visitors because of the overflow crowd being placed in the outfield and along the foul lines. The future Hall of Fame southpaw’s streak will end in July when the Giants lose to Chicago at the West Side Grounds, 7-2.
  • 1961 Robin Roberts, in his twelfth-straight Opening Day start, is tagged with the loss when the Phillies lose to the Dodgers in the LA Memorial Coliseum, 6-2. The right-hander’s effort ties Grover Cleveland Alexander’s National League record for consecutive season openers.
  • 2006 Jeromy Burnitz, Ryan Doumit, Jack Wilson, and Craig Wilson hit solo home runs in the Pirates’ 7-6 victory over the Dodgers at PNC Park. The quartet of round-trippers blasted by the Buc sluggers is each player’s second homer of the season. (Ed. Note: Our thanks to L. Cole for suggesting this entry – LP)

  1. I can live with everything except for Greasylocks, the most loathsome Gnat, going deep.

  2. Difference in the game is the location of ground balls down the first base line between Joc and James.

  3. My sorta-hometown Mariners took an early 7-0 lead at Wrigley and now trail 14-8 after six.
