4/15/22 LOS ANGELES, CA - The Los Angeles Dodgers (5-2) beat the Cincinnati Reds (2-6) at Dodgers Stadium 3-1 for the second time of the four-game series on Jackie Robinson Day.
His wife Rachel Robinson and his son David Robinson in attendance at the 75th Anniversary meant so much to the Dodgers Manager, Dave Roberts.
"To have David here today, knowing that there's going to be 42 jerseys all over the ballpark and everyone in baseball is going to be wearing blue jerseys with the No. 42, it's special," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "What he did was incredible, but we've got to do him right by keeping it going."
The Dodgers pitching staff of Tony Gonsolin pitched four innings, Tyler Anderson (1-0) pitched four innings and gave up one run to pick up the win, and Craig Kimbrel got the save.

Gavin Lux was able to steal second base in the bottom of the third inning. Trea Turner hit a triple into right field, scoring Lux from third base as the Dodgers led 2-0.
Tyler Anderson came into the fifth inning, replacing Gonsolin. Lux would hit a triple off of Vladamir Gutierrez in the bottom of the fifth inning.
