With a late rally failing in the 9th inning the Dodgers came up a run short as they dropped a one run game
to the Rockies 4-3. Ryu lost for the third time this year giving up 4 earned runs in 6 innings. The Dodgers keep on
missing the clutch hit while leaving 27 runners on base. Ryu gave up 3 homeruns 2 to Nolan Arenado and one to
Trevor Story. Chris Russin got the win in relief, and Holland hung on to get the save. Adrian Gonzalez got 2 of the
nine hits, the only Dodger to get more than one hit.
Today in Baseball history the newly arrived Los Angeles Dodgers played the first Major league
game in California, beating their newly moved rival the San Francisco Giants at the coliseum 6-5. 78,672 people
were on hand to watch the proceedings, there were many pregame festivities including a parade from city hall.
Carl Erskine allowed 4 runs on 10 hits in 8 innings to get the win. Brooklyn great Duke Snider was 2-5 with an RBI.
The fans would rally around the Dodgers with record crowds at the coliseum for four years until Dodger stadium
was built. Also on this day in 1950 a young Vin Scully called his first game, and would keep calling games in a hall of
fame career that would last 67 years; Bringing baseball alive to all of us who couldn’t see the game. I sure will miss
the stories he would tell.
