When In Doubt, Turn To The Wolf

Randy Wolf to the rescue.  In each of his last 11 starts, Wolf has pitched at least six innings.  Over those 11 starts, Wolf is 5-3 with a 2.95 ERA.  The Dodgers are 17-10 in his starts this season.

Clint Barmes, who homered last night to give the Rockies a 3-2 lead in the seventh inning, is working on a rare season.  His current batting line on the season is .248/.300/.467, in 480 plate appearances.  Since integration, there have only been 24 batters to qualify for the batting title and put up a .450 slugging with an on-base percentage under .300 (including two other candidates besides Barmes this year).  Barmes' current OBP on the season is .30042.

Like father, like son:  Not only did Dee Gordon win the "Prospect of the Year" award in the Midwest League yesterday, but according to the Dodger pregame notes, his father Tom Gordon also won the same award while with the Appleton Foxes, a Royals' affiliate, in 1988.

On this date 70 years ago, the first televised game in baseball history took place between the Dodgers and the Reds at Ebbets Field.  Red Barber called the game on W2XBS TV.
