Remembering 3 Rachel Robinson quotes from our 3/16/96 interview - #3: "His level of optimism diminished over time and he saw equality was something you had to fight for, not birthright, but as a young person, he thought hard work would get you there. He soon found out that was not the case, he became more and more outspoken about obstacles to our becoming full citizens, (and) ran into barriers to that progress that made him less and less optimistic and more cynical."

Remembering 3 Rachel Robinson quotes from our 3/16/96 interview - #2: "He got death threats, crank letters, warning letters. Initially, I would get them and throw them away, you can't take in all that is frightening. When it got specific, I turned them in to the team. It should have affected us more, but there were immediate threats more potent than hastily scrawled letters."

On Jackie Robinson Day, remembering 3 quotes from his widow, Rachel, in our 3/16/96 interview - #1: "I would describe Jack as a race man, he was very occupied with the fate and plight of our race. It was very important to contribute to the progress — a preoccupation sometimes more important than what was happening to himself — always striving for excellence, but a part of that striving was how it would be perceived."

On Jackie Robinson Day, remembering a quote of his late in life (revisited in our 2/28/97 documentary, "Breaking the Lines – Jackie Robinson's Legacy"): "I kind of look around at some of those who came up and I've asked myself whether or not they could have survived under the kind of conditions that existed. I'm sure many of them could, I'm sure many more could not."

MLB power rankings: Are the Dodgers and Padres the best teams in baseball? (1:31)

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The only hit Trevor Bauer allowed through seven innings against the Rockies tonight was an infield single. He also retired Trevor Story with his right eye closed. His ERA is down to 2.70 in his first three starts with the Dodgers, and he has struck out 29 batters in 20 innings.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

If you're going to chase the single-season record for wins -- as the Dodgers have a legitimate chance to do -- you better play from ahead. That's what the Dodgers are doing with an 8-2 start after Sunday's 3-0 win over the Nationals (their second shutout in the series). Clayton Kershaw continues to be effective with his offspeed stuff, as 15 of his 16 strikeouts in 2021 have come on offspeed pitches.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Dodgers were without both Mookie Betts and Cody Bellinger for four straight games and won three of them. Today, Clayton Kershaw pitched six scoreless innings and Kenley Jansen threw 94-mph cutters. The Dodgers are 8-2.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Clayton Kershaw and Max Scherzer combined today: 12 innings, 1 run, 8 hits, 1 walk, 11 strikeouts, 24 swings and misses, 176 pitches ... 69 years on Planet Earth.
