San Diego Padres at Los Angeles Dodgers

According to Bill Henderson's style guide, this game was to commemorate Jackie Robinson, and it was played against the San Diego Padres, who wore current uniforms. However, according to this website:

BONUS: August 31, 2005 - Dodger Stadium. Derek Lowe gets the win in a complete game shutout allowing just 1 hit… in a Brooklyn Dodger uniform nonetheless… throwback unis only make the feel of the game a little retro and different.

Only problem is says that on 8/31/05 the Dodgers played a road game at Wrigley Field. Since this is a "home" looking white Brooklyn uniform, I'm going to go with Bill, although as he says, they only used "Brooklyn" on road grey jerseys, and only from 1939 to 1945, not during Robinson's career.
