Blog Kiosk: 6/27/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

I guess we can't expect to win them all, but it would've been nice to take the first game of the Freeway Series against the Angels. Per Ken Gurnick and Kaelen Jones at MLB.com:
"That's the great thing about this game, that's why we play," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the flipped script. "Tip your hat to Nolasco, he threw a great baseball game. He's a veteran pitcher who had a really good night."
It figures that a former Dodger would break our ten-game winning streak.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1939 the Dodgers and Boston Braves/Bees play a 23 inning game that ends in a 2-2 tie. In 1980 Jerry Reuss throws a no-hitter against the Giants at Cadelstick Park, 8-0. He faces just 28 batters, and missed a perfect game due to an error by Bill Russell in the first inning. In 2011 the Dodgers file for bankruptcy following the leagues refusal to approve a multibillion-dollar TV deal with FoxSports.

  • Per Eric Stephen at True Blue LA; "Scott Kazmir begins rehab assignment, Corey Seager still active."
His hip strain prevented Kazmir from throwing at his normal velocity during spring training, and the Dodgers had him work on a specialized program at Camelback Ranch in Arizona designed to increase arm speed and velocity.
The pair, former teammates for the California Warriors summer ball team, flew together from SFO to Phoenix on Sunday and have been hotel roommates near the Dodgers’ spring training facility at Camelback Ranch in Phoenix. They put ink to paper on their first day of braving the 120-degree desert heat.
“That’s when I had the realization that we’re living our dream: Getting paid to play baseball,” Gamboa said. “There’s been a lot thrown at me, but it’s a lot of fun and it’s exciting getting to take this next step. Making things official is pretty unbelievable.”
