Box score of the week

The Los Angeles Dodgers visit Cincinnati to take on the Reds the opening week of the 1989 regular season.


In 1988, Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser set an all-time record with 59-1/3 consecutive scoreless innings, breaking the mark of 58 held by former Dodger great Don Drysdale. Because Hershiser finished the '88 season with that streak intact, it carried over to the '89 campaign. In his first start that year (the game referenced above), he recorded the first two outs of the game (pushing his overall streak to 60 innings) before allowing a run.
