The former player who drew the most attention in the dugout and on the field was manager Dave Roberts, under immense pressure while playing in front of his players. In the first inning, Roberts hit a leadoff single to center off Valenzuela and advanced to third in the next two at-bats.
"Thank goodness this game's only two innings," Roberts said. "I'm going to try to come out of it OK, not end up on the training table. If I do, I'm going to take a lot of grief from the players. That's kind of more important than getting a hit today."

  • This Day in Dodger History:  In 1958 the Dodgers, in their 35th home game ever in Los Angeles, reached the one million attendance mark.  At Ebbets Field they drew 1,028,258 fans total all season the year prior.  In 1974 Dodgers reliever Mike Marshall appeared in his 13th consecutive game, setting a major league record.  The streak also ended on this day when he didn't make an appearance during the second game of a doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds. In 1993 Don Drysdale died of a heart attack in Montreal after broadcasting the Dodgers’ game against the Expos.
