Despite an unscheduled day off yesterday and mucky 44-degree weather today, the Dodger pitching and bats finally showed up in the same game. Appropriately, it happened in an AL park, and it was good for franchise win #10,000.
Thank goodness for Zack Greinke during Kershaw's absence, because he's been a rock for us. Today he went six innings, allowing only an unearned run. Offensively, we haven't seen a game like this in a while. With two out in the third inning, Hanley had a
two-run two-on, one-run single, followed by a two-run two-on, one-run single by AGon. And with two out in the seventh, Ethier (!) hit an RBI double. Uribe followed that with a two-run single. Puig chipped in with an RBI in the eighth.
This being the Dodgers, we couldn't finish the game without a little bullpen shittiness. Once Paco allowed a run to make it 6-2 and a man reached second, I guess it became a save situation because Donnie brought in Kenley to close it. Naturally, Kenley allowed two more runs to score before getting the save.
But a little history was made tonight, folks, so let's focus on that. Oh, and Clayton's coming back soon!
