Blog Kiosk: 6/7/2018 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

Rookie pitcher Caleb Ferguson and the rest of the relief staff struggled, but the Dodgers offense didn't give up. They fought til the bitter end, but fell short as they lost to the Pirates, 11-9. Per Bob Cohn at
"Overall tonight, we didn't pitch well," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "There's only so much an offense can do." 
Said Kemp: "I don't think we're ever out of games, especially the way our offense has been swinging the bat. It was a tough day today. They scored a lot of runs. We tried to make it into a good game, we did. We came up short, but [Thursday] we've got a chance to win the series."
Kemp went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles and a three-run home run to drive in five runs total in the game.

  • This Day in  Dodgers History: In 1898 Brooklyn owner Charles Ebbets stepped in to be the teams manager for the remainder of the season. The team would not fare very well. The Dodgers would have a record of 38-68 under Ebbets and finish in 10th place overall with a 54-91 record. In 1982 Steve Garvey played in his 1,000th consecutive game. He would receive a standing ovation from fans at Dodger Stadium. In 1995 Tommy Lasorda won his 1,500th game as a major league manager when his Dodgers defeated the Expos, 7-1.
