The major league record for consecutive extra-inning losses in a season is 12 by the expansion Montreal Expos in 1969.
Overall, the Dodgers are 1-12 in extra innings this year.
This edition of the Freeway Series finishes up as Walker Buehler (11-2, 2.16 ERA) starts against Angels rookie Reid Detmers. The 22-year-old lefty, who was the 10th overall pick in the 2020 draft, made his big league debut last weekend and gave up six runs on six hits and two walks over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to Oakland.
Slugger J.D. Martinez is out of the Boston lineup after being put the COVID-19-related injured list.
Martinez is batting .284 with 21 home runs and 68 RBIs in 104 games.
“He felt sick last night, has been feeling sick the whole day,” manager Alex Cora before Saturday’s doubleheader at Toronto.
The Red Sox placed rookie outfielder Jarren Duran on the COVID-19-related injured list Friday. Neither Martinez nor Duran has tested positive, Cora said.
Anderson (4-5, 3.67 ERA) is 2-0 in his last four starts. His recent success has been boosted by his ability to keep the ball in the park — he has allowed just one home run in his past seven starts.
Anderson is facing a Giants team that recently added Kris Bryant and went into the weekend tied with Toronto for the most homers in the majors.
Johnny Cueto (7-6, 3.83) has won only one of his last six starts for the Giants.
WRAPPIN’ AT WRIGLEY
Dylan Cease and the AL Central-leading White Sox visit Wrigley Field in the Sunday night finale of their all-Chicago series.
Cease (8-6, 3.92 ERA) is 0-2 with 5.91 ERA lifetime in a pair of starts on the Cubs’ home field. The 25-year-old righty might be able to help himself — he is 3 for 6 with a double in his career at the plate, with all of the at-bats this year.
Zach Davies (6-8, 4.79) has won just one of his his last seven starts.
