Series Thread (Games 116-119): August 9-12 @ Rockies

Thurs 8/9: Ross Stripling vs. Tyler Anderson LAD 8, COL 5
Fri 8/10 5.40p: Kenta Maeda vs. Jon Gray
Sat 8/11 5.10p: Walker Buehler vs. Kyle Freeland
Sun 8/12 12.10p: TBD vs. Chad Bettis

We're back in second place, 0.5 games behind Arizona and 2.5 games ahead of the Rockies.

We really need a big series here.

If I only had a sign...

------

UPDATE 8/10, 11.40a (Sax): Wow, what a comeback. When Baez gave up that Iannetta three-run HR to change a 3-1 Dodgers lead to a 5-3 deficit, I was disconsolate to say the least. But the Dodgers came back with home runs from Cody Bellinger to tie it, and Brian Dozier to ice it, and won Game 1, 8-5.

I'll take it.
