Here’s a heads up for those of you with DirecTV:
Beginning today, DirecTV is changing the FSN Prime Ticket and FSN West channel numbers. FSN Prime ticket will move from 653 to 694 and FSN West will be switched from 652 to 692. The change is only applicable to DirecTV customers and does not affect any other satellite or cable operators.
Meanwhile, here’s an interesting note from today’s daily notes…
On this date in 1972, Dodger broadcaster Jerry Reuss had one of his most memorable performances in the big leagues. Pitching for the Houston Astros, Reuss took a no-hitter (allowed four walks) into the ninth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies, only to see Dodger third base coach Larry Bowa lead off the frame with a double. The left-hander quickly recovered, stranding Bowa on the bases by striking out Roger Freed and Greg Luzinski for his fifth career shutout. Reuss would go on to fire a no-hitter for the Dodgers on June 27, 1980.
Here’s tonight’s lineup…Charley Steiner called a little bit ago and pointed out that incredibly, we were in Cincinnati almost two months ago and at the time, we were six games out of first place. We’re three games under .500 since then and we’re closer to first than we were then. Wow.
