Post-Game 4 Thread: So Much For That Scoreless Inning Streak

Wood sends streak up in flames


Dave Roberts had already seen Alex Wood's shakiness bring an end to the Dodgers' scoreless inning streak, at 31 innings of play, after Wood let three runs score in the bottom of the fifth. In the top of the sixth, Roberts let Wood bat for the final out. And Wood rewarded his faith by coming back out in the bottom of the sixth, and giving up the lead.

A two-run Joc Pederson HR in the top of the eighth showed the Dodgers weren't done yet, having watched their early 4-0 lead go up in smoke. However Pedro Baez let Hunter Pence hit a grand slam in the bottom of that inning, and it was done.

The Dodgers are now tied with the Giants atop the NL West with only 158 games left to play. Tough loss, but let's get Justin Turner (and maybe even Carl Crawford) back in the lineup tomorrow, and go at it with...Ross Stripling? Hoo boy.
