One night after being no-hit by Mike Fiers, the Dodgers sent Zach Greinke to the mound to try to tie the three-game series up at one-a-piece.

If you thought Jose Altuve and Dustin Pedroia are short ... On this date in 1951, the 3-foot-7, 65-pound Eddie Gaedel pinch-hit for the St. Louis Browns. He wore No. 1/8.
