Rockies @ Dodgers June 2, 2024: Gavin Stone looks to pitch Dodgers to a series win

Last night wasn’t the prettiest win for the Dodgers, but Yoshinobu Yamamoto turned in a good outing (six innings, one run, seven strikeouts) and the offense did enough for a 4-1 win. Evan Phillips had a successful return to the mound and tossed a perfect ninth for the save, and Blake Treinen gutted out a successful eighth in his first outing since the Trump Verdict. Today, Gavin Stone takes the ball for the Dodgers against lefty Austin Gomber.

Stone looks to continue the best stretch of his career. He’s completed at least six innings in each of his last six starts and has allowed one or fewer runs in five of those. The other was a tougher outing against Arizona where he allowed four, but he’s arguably been the Dodgers’ most dependable arm over the last month.

Gomber had an excellent May, aided by three of his four starts coming away from Coors. He went 6+ in each of his four starts, including his last time out when he allowed a run in eight innings in Oakland. He only allowed two earned runs in 26 2/3 innings in May, both on solo homers. He allowed a third run, but it was both unearned and came after he was pulled from his start against the Rangers.


Does this feel like a very low effort thread? No one else is around and I’m writing this in 15 minutes as I’m headed to Furiosa in like five minutes. If there’s any roster moves or newsworthy tweets, just pretend they’re here.


First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 PM PT and will be shown on SportsNet LA.
