Games 72-74 Thread: June 27-29 @ Rockies

Mon 27: Tyler Anderson vs. Kuhl
Tue 28: Clayton Kershaw vs. Freeland
Wed 29: Julio Urias vs Márquez
All games 5.40p

After beating the Braves in a hard-fought rubber match on Sunday, notching the series victory (not to mention the Dodgers' first extra-inning win all year!), the Dodgers depart Atlant having left behind a lot of tears.

Freddie Freeman left some tears on the field, as well as at Friday's pre-game press conference. Daniel Hudson unfortunately left a tear on the field as well, tearing his left ACL late in Saturday's game. So I sincerely hope that our next stop on this road trip, to Colorado, is tear-free.

The Dodgers are now 5-1 on this roadtrip, which is a nice turnaround from a pretty bad June (12-10). Let's keep it rolling, Dodgers!

Anderson not locating his pitches very well. 2-0 Rox B2.

Steve Sax said...

My god we are already down 2-0.

And we still don't have a hit yet

Steve Sax said...

hi karen!

Steve Sax said...

Tyler escapes the second.

2-0 COL through 2.

Steve Sax said...

Lux gets the Dodgers' first hit of the game! One-out single.

Steve Sax said...

Lux just TOOTBLANs

Steve Sax said...

Geez, Chad Kuhl is carving us up here. We have one hit (and one baserunning goof) through four innings.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers have had the minimum at bats through five innings. Still down 2-0

Steve Sax said...

We're down 4-0 through 6.

Freeman just got a one-out single, only our second hit of the game.

Yay.

karen said...

Hey Sax!!! I missed you this weekend. It was so emotional! I was having trouble being patient with Freddie. He looked so wiped out in the last innings last night. Did you hear about Kersh's comment about hoping that the Dodgers weren't second fiddle and that they were a pretty special team, too. The ESPN guys were saying Kershaw was being tactful but sending a message.

karen said...

This has been such a hot, icky day I guess it's only appropriate that the Dodgers cap the day off with a loss.

karen said...

Night Sax!

Steve Sax said...

@karen: thanks, I missed that Clayton Kershaw point. And now I hear Freddie Freeman has fired the agents who botched his Atlanta Braves renegotiation and exit.

Time to move on, Freddie! Embrace being a Dodger!

Steve Sax said...

Slappy sits.

Muncy is back down to a .160 average

karen said...

HAPPY KERSHAW DAY!!!

karen said...

@Sax....The ESPN guys were saying that at one point during the negotiations the agent gave the Braves one hour to make a decision on Freddie. I'm pretty sure Freddie didn't know that.

karen said...

@Sax....Also, ESPN guys were talking about the class of shortstops that were available for Free Agency and said Trea Turner does not like living on the west coast And Dansby Swanson is Freddie's best friend so it is possible we'll end up with Swanson.

karen said...

1-1 after 1. Kersh a little shaky to start.

karen said...

Alberto goes yard on first pitch of the second. 2-1 Blue T2.

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw is looking very shaky. We are down 4-2 after two, and Colorado has five hits already.

karen said...

Hi Sax!!! Diaz goes yard. 5-2 Rox B3.

karen said...

We're going to have to hope for a typical Coors game where the Dodgers score 12, 14 runs the way Kersh is off tonight.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers had runners at the corners and Barnes up with two out. Barnes chokes.

Still 4-2 COL, mid-4

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw gone after four innings. It's 6-2 COL, and Bickford is in.

Freeman getting bashed in the media big time right now. i feel sorry for the dude. i'm sure he wants to play for the Dodgers. his numbers show it. firing his agents is for being deceived during his contract negotiation. i'd do the same if i was him. also Kershaw making public his thoughts on freeman after the emotional series with the Braves didnt help matters and made shit overblown. Kershaw should have kept that shit in house instead of being all TMZ with it. not something a good captain does. he made the Dodgers into a soap opera. i'm still not watching Dodgers games because they got swept by the Giants. Fuck that shit.

Steve Sax said...

Freddie will be fine with the Dodgers.

I don't think Kershaw meant it like that, but it was blown up by the media trying to make something of it. I'm sure the two of them have spoken and it's cool.

Now, about what karen said earlier speculating that Trea doesn't like living on the west coast? That's not good. Get the guy some tickets to Disneyland for pete's sake



Steve Sax said...

Dodgers ahead 4-0 through 2

karen said...

@Sax...I had never heard that either...that Trea doesn't like the west coast. I mean how could anyone not like living the the best coast?

karen said...

Great defensive play by Bazooka.
