Blog Kiosk: 9/5/2019 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

You can't stop Pederson!

Last night he walloped two home runs to give him 32 on the season. He also has five home runs over the past 8 plate appearances. Per Ken Gurnick at
“Just riding the wave,” said Pederson. “Swinging at pitches I’m able to handle. It’s really fun.”
During this recent short stretch he recorded six consecutive at-bats with an extra-base hit to tie a National League record set by Larry Walker in 1996.

The Dodgers 7-3 victory over Colorado last night reduces their "Magic Number" to four games. The photo above via Jon SooHoo/Los Angeles Dodgers 2019 at Dodger Insider. Go here to check out more pics from yesterdays game. Below are more links to check out:
  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1908 Brooklyn Superbas/Dodgers hurler Nap Rucker throws a no-hitter against the Boston Doves/Braves at Washington Park in Brooklyn. He struck out 14 and walked none en route to a 6-0 victory. In 1951 Gil Hodges hit a grand slam off Phillies pitcher Ken Johnson -- his 37th homer of the season and a new Dodger single-season record. In 1955 Don Newcombe hit his seventh home run of the season to establish a National League record for home runs by a pitcher in a season. It was a three-run jack in the fourth inning to give the Dodgers a 4-1 lead. Newk would eventually throw a complete game to win his 20th game of the season, 11-4. In 1978 both the Dodgers and Angels have their home games postponed due to rain -- a rare occurrence in the Southland.

  • From the Great Lake Loons - a Dodger farmclub. Per Alex Seder at From the Nest -- "Top 15 Photos of the Second Half."
  • Per Jeff Todd at MLB Trade Rumors provides a nice roundup of the injured Dodgers' -- "Dodgers Health Updates: Verdugo, Muncy, Hill, May."
Back soreness has halted the rehab work of outfielder Alex Verdugo. He had seemingly been nearing a return from an oblique injury. Now, per Roberts, Verdugo may head back to the club’s Arizona facility to receive further treatment.
Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider adds more: 
“The oblique is in good shape,” Roberts said. “But the back, I think early on he hurt it in Tampa initially and it’s sort of been lingering and he’s played through it. The oblique is what initially put him on the IL, but the back is something we’re just trying to get past.” 

  • I had failed to mentioned that this happened prior to Tuesday's game. Congrats! Via a tweet from the Dodgers:
