Game 124, 2023

Dodgers at Guardians, 4:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports Great Lakes, SPNLA

The Dodgers’ RHP Bobby Miller (7-2, 3.70 ERA) takes the mound at Progressive (formerly Jacobs) Field, where he’ll face the Guardians’ RHP Noah Syndergaard (2-6, 6.57 ERA). The Dodgers dealt Syndergaard and cash away last month in exchange for infielder Amed Rosario.

In case you missed it: here’s the customized bat the Phillies’ Bryson Stott took to the plate during Sunday’s Little League Classic game against the Nationals.

Today in Dodgers’ history

  • 1917 In a 22-inning contest against the Dodgers, Pirates’ outfielder Carson Bigbee sets a major-league record with 11 at-bats. The game was also the fourth straight extra-inning game played by Pittsburgh (59 innings in all), which sets a National League record.
  • 1965 Juan Marichal thinks John Roseboro throws too close to his head returning the ball to Sandy Koufax and attacks the Dodger catcher with his bat. The Los Angeles backstop suffers cuts on the head during the 14-minute brawl.
  • 2000 Hitting a solo blast and a three-run round-tripper during a nine-run sixth inning of a 14-6 victory over the Expos, Dodger first baseman Eric Karros becomes the first player in the 111-year franchise history to hit two homers in an inning.

In 1886 Louisville’s Chicken Wolf hits a game-winning inside-the-park home run, thanks to a stray dog impeding Abner Powell from fielding the ball. The canine, who had been sleeping by the fence, refuses to let go of the pant leg of the Reds center fielder, who watches in dismay as the Colonel batter races around the bases in the team’s 5-4 loss at Eclipse Park.
