Game 67, 2023

White Sox at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: MLBN (out-of-market only), NBCSCH, SPNLA

RHP Lance Lynn (4-6, 6.72 ERA) is the White Sox’s pitcher this evening. He’ll face the Dodgers’ RHP Tony Gonsolin (3-1, 2.21 ERA).

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1957 In a game which features the ejection of Johnny Logan and Don Drysdale, Clem Labine loses for the first time in ten months and 38 relief appearances when the Braves beat Brooklyn, 8-5. The Milwaukee shortstop charged the mound after getting drilled in the ribs by the Dodger right-hander, resulting in banishment for both players.
  • 1962 Warren Spahn’s record drops to 6-7 when the Braves southpaw suffers his fifth one-run decision of the young season, losing a 2-1 decision to the Dodgers at Milwaukee’s County Stadium. Sandy Koufax’s fifth-inning home run, the first of only two round-trippers he collects during his 12-year career, proves to be the difference.
  • 1973 The Dodgers infield, a quartet which will be together eight and a half years, setting a major league record for longevity, plays together for the first time. First baseman Steve Garvey, second baseman Davey Lopes, third baseman Ron Cey, and shortstop Bill Russell are in the lineup in the 16-3 defeat to the Phillies.
  • 1998 The first triple play ever completed at Dodger Stadium is turned by Darren Dreifort (p), Eric Young (2b), Jose Vizcaino (ss), and Bobby Bonilla (3b). With Colorado runners on first and second base, the 1-6-4 double play becomes a triple killing when Jamey Wright is thrown out at third base by the LA second baseman, who covered first base for the second out.
  • 2010 The Angels, with their first sweep at Dodger Stadium, complete their 14-game road trip with 11 victories, the most for the team on a single trip since 1962. In the 6-5 decision over their crosstown rivals, Halo hurler Jered Weaver strikes out his older brother, Jeff, who came into the game as a long reliever in the third inning, for the first time since they were kids.

Lineups when available.

  1. A’s have beaten the Devil Rays on reverse boycott night – the crowd of 28,000 was about four times what the team has been averaging;

  2. On “Sell the team, Fisher” night, A’s have a 2-1 lead over over the Devil Rays after eight.

  3. Does anybody have Dontrelle’s phone number. If so, give him a call and keep him talking to you.

  4. I don’t think a trade for Tim Anderson would cost as much compared to last year. But I also don’t think the Dodgers need to pull that trigger.

    Dodger trades need to be for: Pitching. Pitching. And pitching.

    • Everything revolves around the starting pitching. I would build a team around 4 or 5 starters that can go 6 to 7 innings and give up 3 or less runs. Definition of a quality start. Doesn’t over tax the bullpen or the offense. By the way, a quality start of 6 innings and 3 runs is an ERA of 4.50. So they don’t have to be great pitchers to fill that roll.

  5. Fillies have taken a 6-0 lead over the Snakes after three in the desert. Zack Wheeler, their best starter, is on the hill.

    • About time for some of our pitchers to get healthy. I don’t think the D’Backs are going away. They are good. I do believe they will have their struggles going forward. All teams do.

  6. I remember watching that Koufax-Spahn matchup, and Sandy’s HR in particular, on Saturday’s Game of the Week.
