1962 Johnny Podres ties a major league mark record, striking out eight consecutive batters in LA's 5-1 victory over Philadelphia. The 29-year-old southpaw's streak begins with the third out in the top of the fourth frame and ends after the first out in the seventh inning of the Dodger Stadium contest.
1995 Dodger right-hander Hideo Nomo, leading the National League in strikeouts, becomes the first player from Japan selected for the major league All-Star game. As the starter for the Senior Circuit, the 26-year-old rookie tosses two scoreless innings in National League's 3-2 victory over their American League rivals at The Ballpark in Arlington.

2019 The Dodgers overcome a 4-3 deficit with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning when the Diamondbacks' bullpen walk five consecutive batters, including Cody Bellinger's base-on-balls forcing in the winning run. The last time the Chavez Ravine club got a walk-off win with a walk was when Bellinger drew the fourth consecutive free pass issued by the Royals relievers, plating the winning run in a 5-4 extra-inning victory in 2017.
