Post-Game 51 Thread: Postponed Game Comes Back To Bite Us


Sure, Joc Pederson hit a 477-foot, two-run HR in the thin air of Coors Field ( video embedded in the USA link). The Dodgers still lost this game, the first in a doubleheader that was the postponed game from May 9 (rainout). The Dodgers didn't field much of a team this time, what with Juan Nicasio starting (two innings, one ER), followed by a parade of non-descript names that didn't faze Colorado much.

On our side, Adrian Gonzalez also had a bases-loaded walk to make it 3-3 in the fifth inning. The Rockies came back in the bottom of that frame and scored two to re-take the lead, which they never relinquished.

Man, I hope we can get a victory in the nightcap. I am betting that we prevail.
