Dodgers at Diamondbacks, 6:40 PM PDT, TV: BS Arizona, SPNLA
RHP Mitch White (1-0, 6.17 ERA) makes his second start and seventh appearance overall for the Dodgers tonight. He’ll face RHP Humberto Castellanos (3-1, 4.29 ERA) of the D-Backs. Castellanos has been neither fish nor fowl in his big league career; he’s made 31 appearances in his two-plus years in the majors, 14 of them starts.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 2015 Clayton Kershaw pitched seven innings of four-hit ball and the Dodgers scored six runs in the fourth inning on doubles by Howie Kendrick, Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis and went on to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-0.
Also, a very famous game took place on this date in 1959: Pirates’ hurler Harvey Haddix pitches 12 perfect innings but loses 1-0 to the Braves in the 13th inning. The heart-breaking winning run scores on a Don Hoak error, a sacrifice, a walk, and a two-bagger by Joe Adcock. To add insult to injury,
In 1991, the Committee for Statistical Accuracy in Baseball announced that a no-hitter would be redefined as “a game in which a pitcher or pitchers complete a game of nine innings or more without allowing a hit,” meaning Haddix’s gem no longer qualified. When he was made aware that one of the greatest games ever pitched no longer had a place in the record books, his response was simple: “It’s OK. I know what I did.”
