The Los Angeles Dodgers won their 10,000 Franchise game with today’s 6-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Remember this date as April 30,2014 will be a date that will be used in future Dodgers trivia questions. Another question will be who was the pitcher that won the Dodgers 10,000 game? The answer my friends is Zack Greinke. I can already visualize a Dodger employee asking when was the Dodgers first win for a chance to win_______? The Dodgers first win came on April 21, 1890 when they were in Brooklyn. There you have it! 🙂 I deserve better than a Dodger Dog for getting the answer correct! lol
The Dodgers are the fourth MLB franchise to win 10,000 games. The Giants, Cubs and Braves are the other ones.
I actually had plans to attend tonight’s game in Minneapolis as I was planning on taking couple days off from work to see my beloved Dodgers play the Twins but due to work commitments that plan was delayed. I will say that Target field is a great baseball stadium as I had the chance to visit it last year.
Looks like Zack Greinke is back to his 2009 self but more wiser. He has a record of 18 consecutive starts without allowing more than 2 runs. We haven’t seen that feat accomplished since 1914! With Greinke pitching the way he is and Kershaw expected to be back soon the Dodgers will once again have the best two pitchers leading their starting rotation in all of Baseball. If the Dodgers can stay healthy as a club from June til the end of the season, then I do expect the Dodgers to make a run at the title this year.

On a side note…April 30,2014 will also be cemented in L.A. Sports History as not only the date the Dodgers won their 10,000 game but the date when the L.A. Kings pulled off one of the amazing comebacks in Sports history as they came back from an 0-3 deficit to stun the Sharks 5-1 and win the best of 7 series. Good day to be a Sports fan in Los Angeles!
