On September 2, 2002 — The Dodgers pummel the Diamondbacks, 19 – 1, with only a 9th-inning score preventing them from tying the team mark for most lopsided shutout ever. The 24 hits ties the mark for the team in Los Angeles. They score eight of their runs in the 7th inning. The last hit for L.A. is the first major league homer by Dave Ross, and it comes off Mark Grace, who pitches the 9th inning.
