The Dodgers faced a tough Tijuan Walker of the Diamondbacks who gave up 1 run on 4 hits in 5 innings.
Fernando Rodney got the save. Chris Iannetta homered for the Dbacks. For the Dodgers starter Rich Hill left the
game with a blister on his pitching hand after 3 innings got the loss. Justin Turner Stayed with a hot bat going 2-4
on the day. The Relief pitching did very well stranding 19 Dback runners. At this time Dave Roberts was unsure if
Hilll would be returning to the Disabled list or not.
In baseball history this date in 1929 the Cleveland Indians wore permanent numbers on their
backs for the first time beating the Tigers 5-4. In the same game Earl Averill was the first player to hit a home run
in his first major league at bat, he would go on to make the hall of fame being the first hall of famer to hit a homer
in his first at bat. Also in 1948 the future superstation WGN-TV would televise the first baseball game ever as the
White Sox beat the Cubs 4-1 of the windy city classic.
