The Dodgers opened against the Rockies for the first time ever

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

This week on the podcast we look back at the first five games of the season (recorded on Tuesday morning), which captures the weirdness of the weekend at Coors Field plus Dustin May’s dazzling 2021 debut in Oakland.

If you have any questions for a future episode, please email tblapodcast@gmail.com, or tweet us at @ericstephen or @jacobburch. Kudos as well to producer Brian Salvatore for all his hard work behind the scenes.

Dodgers rewind

With the Dodgers in Oakland this week, we look back at Darren Hall, who pitched in relief for the Dodgers for three seasons (1996-98), and was the winning pitcher on June 13, 1997, the Dodgers first win in interleague play, in their second-ever interleague game, on the road against the A’s.

Hall had a very good season in 1997, posting a 2.30 ERA (169 ERA+) in 63 games, but his other two years with Los Angeles were marred by injuries to his elbow and rotator cuff.
