Series Thread (Games 15-16): Apr 18-19 vs Rockies

4/18, 7p: Hyun-Jin Ryu vs Kyle Freeland
COL 4, LAD 3

4/19, 7p: Clayton Kershaw vs Tyler Anderson
LAD 4, COL 2

Are we back in time? Did we jump in the DeLorean and punch it to 88 mph and travel all the way back to...2016? Because all this seems awfully familiar: flailing vs. lefties, pitchers not named Clayton unable to go past five innings, a bullpen taxed with nigh-impossible expectations. Heck, even Ethier and Hill are back on the DL. Will a brief two-game series against the first-place Rockies cure what ails us? Did Marvin Berry and the Starlighters write "Johnny B. Goode"?
