Cody doesn't only slug -- he's got a golden glove too. Last night he saved the day when he fielded a sacrifice bunt attempt and threw out the lead-runner at third base. It not only recorded an important first out of the ninth inning, but also helped salvage a precarious one-run lead. Per Ken Gurnick at
"Cody's play saved the game," said catcher Austin Barnes, who added that he would have accepted the out at first base on Austin if Bellinger hadn't cut in front of him. "Cody's crazy. He won the game." 
"I just started crashing once he squared around and knew that Vogt was running," said Bellinger. "It was more of whoever was picking up would throw to the base you think. I didn't hear anything, just focused on third. Turned out to be a big play. It probably would have been the weirdest loss I've ever been a part of. Good thing it wasn't, and a win is a win."

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1959 former Dodger Don Newcombe, now a pitcher for the Cincinnati Reds, throws a complete game victory over Los Angeles, 17-3, at the LA Memorial Coliseum. It is his eighth win of the season. He recorded six strike outs and goes 4-for-4 at the plate -- all singles with four runs driven in. In 1998 the Dodgers replaced their manager, Bill Russell, with coach Glenn Hoffmann. Fred Claire is also fired, as Tommy Lasorda becomes the new GM. In 2016 the Dodgers signed Dean Kremer -- the first ever Israeli to sign a contract with a major league club. He had just been drafted in the 14th round of the 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft.

  • ICYMI: The Dodgers today recalled right-handed pitchers JT Chargois and Josh Sborz from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Rich Hill was placed on the 10-day IL with left forearm strain and Matt Beaty was optioned back to Oklahoma City.
  • Per Alden Gonzalez at ESPN -- "Dodgers' Hill (forearm) hopes to return this year."
An MRI on Thursday revealed that veteran starting pitcher Rich Hill is nursing a flexor tendon strain near his left elbow, an injury that will prevent him from throwing for nearly a month and will keep him on the injured list at least into August.
"Yeah, I think I'll be able to pitch again this season," Hill said. "Definitely. When that is, I don't have that answer."
Uceta spun a gem for Double-A Tulsa, firing seven scoreless innings. He worked around just three hits and struck out seven batters without allowing a walk. Uceta needed this type of start after back-to-back outings where he made his exit after just one inning, allowing a total of 11 earned runs to score across those two innings.
