Dodgers at Braves, 4:20 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports South, SPNLA
The Dodgers’ rookie RHP Gavin Stone (0-0, 9.00 ERA) makes his second big league appearance this evening. He’ll face the Braves’ wily veteran RHP Charlie Morton (5-3, 2.85 ERA).
- 1998 The Mets trade Preston Wilson, Geoff Goetz, and Ed Yarnell to the Marlins for Mike Piazza. Florida had acquired the All-Star catcher last week from the Dodgers, along with Todd Zeile in exchange for Gary Sheffield, Bobby Bonilla, Charles Johnson, Jim Eisenreich, and Manuel Barrios.
- 1999 Mark McGwire becomes the third player to launch a ball out of Dodger Stadium when one of his two home runs travels 483 feet in the Cardinals’ 10-7 victory at Chavez Ravine. The slugging first baseman joins Willie Stargell, who accomplished the feat twice in 1969 and 1973, and Mike Piazza, whose Ruthian blast cleared the ballpark two seasons ago.
