Padres at Dodgers, 7:10 PM PDT, TV: Bally Sports San Diego, MLBN (out-of-market only), SPNLA
The Padres send LHP Ryan Weathers (1-0, 1.93 ERA) out to make his second career big league start. His first was last Friday against the Dodgers, and he went 3 2/3 innings. He gave up one hit and no runs while striking out three. He’ll face RHP Walker Buehler (1-0, 2.00 ERA), who’s gone six innings in each of his first three starts and given up no more than two runs in any of them.
Today in Dodgers’ history:
- 1898 Today marks the first time two no-hitters occur on the same day when Orioles (NL) right-hander Jay Hughes and Reds southpaw Theodore Breitenstein keep their opponents hitless, beating the Beaneaters, 8-0, and the Pirates, 11-0, respectively. A double no-no on the same date will not happen again until June 29, 1990, when A’s Dave Stewart and Dodger Fernando Valenzuela accomplish the feat with gems against the Blue Jays and Cardinals.
- 2007 The Red Sox become the fifth big-league team to hit four consecutive homers in an inning when Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek go deep with two outs in the third inning at Fenway off Yankee starter Chase Wright. J.D. Drew was also part of the quartet of the 2006 Dodgers, who were the fourth major league team to connect for four straight round-trippers in one frame.
