In a Thursday getaway game the Dodgers lost to the Cubs and former Dodger pitcher Brett Anderson who
threw 5 shutout innings giving up 3 hits and 4 walks. Hyun-Jin Ryu took the loss, giving up 4 runs on 6 hits in 4 and
2/3 innings, including home runs to Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell. The Dodgers offense was 0-10 with
runners in scoring position and left 9 runners on base. The Dodgers bats continue to be cold and Manager Roberts
simply put it “they are trying to do too much”. Hopefully for Dodger fans they better get on track soon as they play
the hot Diamondbacks this weekend at Dodger Stadium.
In Baseball history today in 1883 then President Chester A Arthur who stated “Good ballplayers make
good citizens” as he invited the Forrest city Ball club from the National Association to the White House, Making
them the first team ever to visit the president at the nation’s capital. On a personal note one of my favorite players
Pete Rose got his first major league hit on this date in 1963, it was a triple off of the pirates. Charley Hustle would
end up with 4,256.
