In 1988, a game after backup infielder Dave Anderson gave up his on-deck circle spot for injured outfielder Kirk Gibson, the Dodgers started a homegrown pitcher in Orel Hershiser who had given up 5 runs (3 earned) in 83.2 innings.

Tonight, a game after backup infielder Mark Loretta gave up his on-deck circle spot for injured outfielder Manny Ramirez, the Dodgers start a homegrown pitcher in Clayton Kershaw who has given up 3 runs in his last 42.2 innings.

Back in 1988, the Dodgers won that game, Game 2 of the World Series, 6-0. Tonight....
