One time LAD 1 – 0 Losers

Bringing this little 1 – 0 loser arc thread to a close we now look at all the pitchers who lost one game 1 – 0.  This is a fun list with many names you won’t see often, combined with two of the greatest pitchers of any era.

Several scrapheap projects. Al Downing had been part of the last great Yankee teams of the early 60’s but by the time he became a Dodger in 1971 his career was headed nowhere. Downing rediscovered his touch as a Dodger and would win 20 games for the first time. Al would finish 3rd in Cy Young voting.  As a Dodger, he would go onto to throw 16 games with a game score of 75 or more, and of those 16 games, this would be the only game he would lose. He was called Gentleman Al for his gentle nature.

Who is this Kershaw guy?

Giovanni Carrara? Are you kidding me???

Nomo, Kuroda, and Maeda – how about that.

Jim Brewer – I don’t ever recall him being a starter for the Dodgers. Looks like he was pressed into service because of a Sept doubleheader and acquitted himself quite well.

Joe Moeller as a teenager

John Ely – must have been the game that got him on the sports illustrated cover.

Rubby De La Rosa – all the promise and then the surgery.
