Post-Game 34 Thread: Yimi, Yimi, Yimi; Oh Man, A Rox Highlight


The Dodgers had a 4-2 lead heading into the ninth inning, and Chris Hatcher no longer had the ball. Ballgame, right?

Except Yimi Garcia let the game go: leadoff walk to Nick Hundley, strikeout of DJ LeMahieu, single to Drew Stubbs, strikeout to Charlie Blackmon...and then a back-breaking three-run HR to Carlos Gonzalez to lose the game.

This erased the good work of Adrian Gonzalez (RBI double in the first, scoring two), Yasmani Grandal (RBI single in the fifth), and even starter Brett Anderson, who had a RBI double of his own. Anderson went 5.1 IP and gvae up 2 ER (1 BB, 8 Ks). But the end result was another 5-4 loss. When is Kenley Jansen back, again?
