Astros at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: ATT SportsNet-SW, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA
28-year-old Astros’ rookie RHP J.P. France (2-2, 3.42 ERA) makes the eighth start of his big league career; he’ll face the Dodgers’ 23-year-old rookie RHP Emmet Sheehan (0-0, 0.00 ERA) who’s making his second major league start.
- 1930 The Dodgers get twelve consecutive hits in a 19-6 win over the Pirates at Forbes Field. Two of the dozen hits in the eight-run sixth inning include a pair of homers hit by Brooklyn outfielder Babe Herman.
- 1986 The Braves strand 18 runners on base, establishing a National League record. Enough Atlanta players do score to give the team a 6-5 victory over L.A. at Dodger Stadium.
Other notable events in baseball on this date include Ernie Shore’s near-perfect game in 1917, when he relieved Babe Ruth (ejected for arguing balls and strikes and possibly punching the umpire) and retired 26 consecutive batters.
Lineups when available.
Late night in LA.
