Games 98-101 Thread: Jul 28-31 @ Rockies

Thu 28 5.40p: Anderson vs. Ureña
Fri 29 5.40p: Urias vs. Kuhl
Sat 30 5.10p: Kershaw vs. Freeland
Sun 31 12.10p: Gonsolin vs. Marquez

The Dodgers are only 5-4 against the lowly Rockies this year, having lost two of three series against the worst team in the NL West. Coming off a series loss to the even-worse Washington Nationals, the Dodgers don't have momentum against losing teams--so it stands to reason that this four-game series won't go well, either. Don't stoop to their level, Dodgers! (But don't walk away, either.)

Oh wow, Muncy AND Bellinger, back to back with their .158 and .205 averages --> followed by McKinstry at .125.

The top of the order had better produce.

Steve Sax said...

2-0 LA in the first inning thanks to an error and some questionable defensive play on the Rockies' side.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, bottom of the order delivers in the second! Shuts my ass up.

Muncy singles
Cody walks
Zach reaches on an FC with a throwing error
Betts lines out
Turner doubles and clears the bases
Freeman walks.

Ureña mound visit. 5-0 LA, Top 2, one out.

MLB Gameday now has Slappy as "W.D. Smith." I guess to differentiate from the Braves pitcher?
