The Dodgers were out-hit (12-8), but they managed to put those 8 hits (1 each from Utley, Seager, and Venable – 2 from Gonzo – and 3 big shots from Turner) to good use in plating 3 runs, winning the contest in extra- innings , 3-2 on a rope a dope single with the bases loaded, by Justin Turner.
Lbirken – Whom is usually the “written comment of reason” around these parts, chimed in afterwards, cautioning us all not to get too down this early in the season.
“Glad Justin Turner showed up tonight. Folks, we are all frustrated watching our Dodgers continue to struggle offensively. The pitching has not been great but it has not been all that bad if the boys could help out the pitchers. However, I think what frustrates us more is watching the Giants continue to win with an offense that also struggles. They are winning the close one run games while the Dodgers are not. We can always hope that a win like tonight is the start of a big turnaround.”
D4 says, “I’d like nothing better than for this to be the case! However, sensible money says, otherwise.”
I just don’t think they have enough muster to get everyone going at the same time, with consistency. Whether it’s on the mound, or with the stick. However, again, I’m often wrong!
Tru says,” Thank-you JT for carrying the team tonight!”
Oldbrooklynfan says, “That old red magic.”
Griz says, “Looks like Turner has decided to fish.”
Fishing is fun…
“So Come along with me…Come along with me…”
