Game 22, 2024

Mets at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: SNY, SPNLA

LHP Sean Manaea (1-1, 4.30 ERA) pitches for the Mets and Yoshinobu Yamamoto (1-1, 4.50 ERA) does so for the Dodgers.

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1890 The Brooklyn Bridegrooms, who will later be known as the Dodgers, play their first National League game. The former American Association team loses to the Beaneaters, who will become known as the Braves in 1912, at Boston’s South End Grounds, 15-9.
  • 1938 During the first inning, both Dodgers’ Ernie Koy and Phillies’ Emmett Mueller homer in their first major league at-bats. The pair of rookies will collectively hit a total 42 home runs during their nine seasons in the major leagues.
  • 1956 In the first major league game ever played in New Jersey, the Dodgers begin their Jersey City home game experiment with a 10-inning 5-4 victory over the Phillies at Roosevelt Stadium. A sparse crowd of 12,214, limited by inclement weather, sees Brooklyn backstop Roy Campanella tie the score in the tenth inning with his 1000th career hit, a double down the left field line.
  • 1968 Nolan Ryan makes quick work of the Dodgers when he strikes out the side on nine pitches in the top of the third inning of the Mets’ 3-2 loss at Shea Stadium. The 21 year-old New York fireballer, who will also accomplish the feat with the Angels in 1972, strikes out 11 batters in 7.1 frames, including Claude Osteen, Wes Parker, and Zoilo Versalles, the victims of his immaculate inning.
  • 2000 Veteran hurler Orel Hershiser ties a major league mark, equaled by 19 others, hitting four batters in one game. Astro Richard Hidalgo also ties a modern major league record by getting hit three times in a game, twice by Hershiser and a third time by Dodger reliever Matt Herges.
  • 2002 Mariners’ third baseman Jeff Cirillo ties the major league record for consecutive errorless games at the hot corner by playing his 99th contest without a miscue. John Wehner, a journeyman infielder with the Dodgers, Pirates, and Marlins, established the mark during a span of eight-plus seasons.

Lineups when available.

  1. Both Fryers and Gnats losing by comfortable margins. Blake Smell has lowered his ERA to 11.57, however.

  2. Dodgers don’t care how good the defense is that they are facing! Rank first in NL in HR, SO and 2nd in BB. Almost “three true outcomes” as a team.

  3. Dodgers close to having the worst record across all the division leading teams. Only Texas at 11-10 are worse right now.

    But as RBI says – get the slump out of the way now. Too much talent on this team to not win a few more games than this.

  4. Well that just about does it. Looking at another loss to open a series for the 4th time in 5 series. Sigh.

  5. Listened on my way home from my granddaughter’s play, Grease (cleaned up). At least we’ve gotten two back.
