June 18, 1969, Los Angeles: Dodgers 10, Padres 1 (box score) A day after being outscored, 18-3, in a doubleheader at Dodger Stadium, the Padres looked to salvage a split of the four-game series against their neighbors to the north.

Good Morning

If you can read this, it means we’re back up and running. I had something planned for this morning, back before my database became corrupt, but it will have to wait. I’ve been troubleshooting stuff for, like, four hours and I need to eat. The gist of what I was going to say earlier is [...]
