Dodgers news ...
The Dodgers did not score on Saturday so losing 3-0 was not a surprise. You can read the TBLA recap here.
Unfortunately, these fans did not get a chance to cheer for any offense on Saturday.

The Dodgers and Mets are playing in primetime (East Coast) and as usual, ESPN’s Buster Olney has a poll out for this game.
We’ve got the Dodgers and Mets on Sunday Night Baseball Sept. 15. The nickname of Mets slugger Pete Alonso is Polar Bear. What’s the best nickname for a HR hitter in MLB history?— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) September 10, 2019
Around the league ...
Former Dodger Charlie Culberson was hit on the face by a pitch while attempting to bunt on Saturday night. Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker was ejected after he argued about the call that the pitch that hit Culberson was a strike because he offered at it before it hit him.

Brian Snitker was very emotional post game talking about Charlie Culberson. He said Charlie was alert when he got to hospital. We have no other updates. #Braves— Kelsey Wingert (@KelsWingert) September 14, 2019
The Minnesota Twins swept a doubleheader over the Cleveland Indians and lowered their magic number to a single digit
Miguel Sano crushed a tie-breaking grand slam in Game 2, and the #MNTwins all but terminated the Indians' three-year reign atop the AL Central with 2-0 and 9-5 victories in Saturday's doubleheader. The magic number is now 9. Story from @MillerStrib https://t.co/lKLPO0f6c0— Star Tribune Sports (@StribSports) September 15, 2019
The Arizona Diamondbacks ended their six-game losing streak but it wasn’t due to their offense.
The Diamondbacks had just 1 baserunner tonight, a Nick Ahmed 3B, but won 1-0 vs the Reds.— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) September 15, 2019
They're the 1st team in the Modern Era (since 1900) to win a game with just 1 baserunner, in a 9+ inning game.
(Which means the Reds are the 1st team to lose such a game)
We will have to see about his last wish but there will be a new Cub’s organist in 2020
Wrigley Field organist Gary Pressy, who began his Cubs career in 1987 and will work his 2,679th consecutive game Saturday, has decided to end his run at the conclusion of the 2019 season— Chicago Tribune Sports (@ChicagoSports) September 14, 2019
He's hoping that will be in the World Series. https://t.co/pDIARX3wcX
Finally, it took him five starts for five different teams but Zack Greinke joins a list of pitchers to do something unique. The most interesting stat is that he pitched against the Royals for all five other teams he played for including half seasons with the Angels and Astros.
By beating the Royals tonight, Zack Greinke became the 19th pitcher to earn a win against all 30 current MLB franchises, according to @EliasSports. Greinke and Max Scherzer are the only active pitchers to do so. pic.twitter.com/BF9livw0KK— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) September 15, 2019
