Saturday morning crib sheet

  • Tony Jackson of recaps the Dodgers’ 6-5 victory over Colorado on Friday.
  • Friday was a day for the ages: 47-year-old Jamie Moyer becoming the oldest pitcher to throw a complete-game shutout, and 20-year-old Starlin Castro (baseball’s first player born in the 1990s) setting the record for most RBI in a major-league debut. (By the way, check out Satchel Paige’s 12-inning shutout at age 46.)
  • Fifty years ago today, “quiet-mannered, pleasant gentleman of 32” Vin Scully had this interview in the Times (via Keith Thursby of the Daily Mirror). You might find some anecdotes there you haven’t heard before.
