Blog Kiosk: 8/20/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Something you might have missed from last night's 12-1 rout of the Mariners was the ninth inning performance by Dodger reliever Zac Rosscup. He came in to finish the game and proceeded to throw the 93rd Immaculate Inning in Major League history -- striking out three batters using only nine strikes. It was also the first Dodger' Immaculate inning since Kenley Jansen's performance on 5/18/17 against the Marlins, the eighth ever in Dodgers history and the sixth Dodger to ever do it (Koufax did it three times). You can watch Rosscup's inning here.

He hit it off of Pirates hurler Preacher Roe in the seventh inning, and it would be the only run the Dodgers would score in a losing effort, 11-1In 1978 Steve Garvey and Don Sutton have a scuffle in the clubhouse before their game against the Mets. Sutton was critical of Garvey in a Washington Post story (here's a followup story); saying that he was more interested in his off-field persona than his play, and that Reggie Smith was the teams MVP.
"All you hear about on our team is Steve Garvey the All-American boy. But Reggie Smith was the real MVP. We all know it . . . (Smith) has carried us the last two years.He is not a facade. He does not have the Madison Avenue image."
"I'm good, guys, nothing crazy," said Machado, who was removed for the precautionary pictures and replaced at third base by designated hitter Justin Turner. "No bone, no nothing."
