Dodgers earn first doubleheader sweep in 12 years

The Dodgers added Red Patterson to their roster Thursday morning so he could make his major league debut against the Minnesota Twins.

This post was going to be about Red Patterson, who struggled through his first major league inning (two hits and a walk on 31 pitches) before giving the Dodgers decent baseball into the fifth. It wasn’t always pretty, and in fact it was just about never pretty, but for an emergency one-shot call-up making his debut in frigid Minnesota temperatures, I think that’s about as much...
