On April 26, 2008 — 2008 – The Dodgers top the Rockies, 11 – 3. Mark Redman allows 10 1st-inning runs but is left in the contest; such a scenario had not taken place in the major leagues for over a century. Redman throws shutout ball for the next five frames, but still takes the loss. Los Angeles sends 13 batters to the plate in the 1st, with a Matt Kemp grand slam the key blow.
