EVERYONE SAYS, “HEY-HEY-HEY!”

Tuesday’s starter Scott Kazmir surrendered 2 runs through 6 innings both coming from the long-ball. One, by the games young-superstar Bryce Harper, who had been mired in somewhat of a recent slump and another from a latter-day hot bat in Danny Espinosa. That was it though. Kazmir kept the Dodgers within striking distance and…

Hey-Hey-Hey

It Became a Frantic Moment

When Yasmani Grandal took it upon himself late in an offensively sluggish ball game, spearheading the team towards the lead. With Joc Pederson on 2nd, due to a base-on-balls from Tanner Roark and a single behind him from Yasiel Puig. Grandal took a monumental swipe at a 1-2 pitch, propelling the ball over the CF wall. Giving new life to the stadium and the scoreboard, now reflecting a Dodger lead of 3-2.

No matter how life is today
There’s just one thing that I got to say
I won’t let another moment slip away

Adam Liberatore relieved Kazmir in the 7th.

Allowing just one hit, while throwing up zeros across his evenings stat-line from there on.

Louis Coleman pitched the 8th.

Striking out one and walking one, while surrendering 2 hits, but no-runs, on his way to becoming the eventual game winner.

Kenley (74 Shut the Door) Jansen

Slammed-It!

in the 9th.

(1-2-3)

 “Woo-Hoo, win streak!!! Nice team win team win tonight.. This team is starting to show some grit..”

LBirken

“This was definitely looking like a loss tonight. I was at the general just hoping Grandal would get a hit and then “bam”, he hits it out and Kenley gets the save. The Nationals are still wondering how they could loose this game.”

“As for Kendrick, he has played left field far better than I expected. He may not always look great but he gets the job done. He made a perfect throw to home tonight that turned out to be a crucial play.”

“Nice to swipe a win from a game they should’ve lost.”

“The main [only?] difference I can see from Roberts’ team vs. Mattingly’s is that Roberts’ doesn’t roll over and play dead in the late innings when they’re down.”

      • Of course the night stand on the other side has a 32 inch smart TV upon it. I call it covering all bases while using the shift defense.

    • The Dodgers paid $450,000 to sign him. Most of the money went to his Mexican League team, Diablos Rojos del México (the Reds of Mexico).

      • That’s what I came up with too. Thanks for the confirmation crash. That puts him making a little over 3 grand per game. I say the rest of the players help give him a bonus today, by scoring early and often!

          • First two starts against the Mets and Cubs were rough. He has improved greatly since then, with very good starts against the Rockies, Giants, and Brewers. The only thing I would ask is for him to pitch at least six full innings, but the FO probably won’t allow that – they have kept a strict pitch count limit of 86 pitches.

            Ratio of K’s to BB’s sits at 3.63 – pretty darn good for a 19 year old!

            • They mentioned on the broadcast during his last outing that 100 pitches was the limit. Then took him out as you said, around 80-ish. I’d like to see him throw early strikes tonight.

  2. Six lefties batting against Joe Ross, who is not good against lefties. I’m looking for Urias to get his first MLB hit tonight!

    Utley 2B
    Seager SS
    Turner 3B
    Gonzalez 1B
    Thompson LF
    Pederson CF
    Grandal C
    Puig RF
    Urias P

  3. Joe Ross career (two years) splits against right-handed and left-handed batters (BA/OBP/SLG/OPS):

    vs. RHB .183/.220/.294/.515
    vs. LHB .283/.364/.434/.798

    Look for Venable to be the first pinch-hitter off the bench, if Ross is even still in there by that time.

    Let’s get some hits, some walks, some doubles, some homers, and lots of runs!

  4. I know we criticize our pitching staff a lot but, be thankful we don’t have the Pirates’ crew…..were leading 6-0 and gave it up…Giants pulled ahead 7-6 8th inning. Hoping for a miracle!

  5. Tbe Dodgers have asked a lot of Urias and while not spectacular, he has been impressive considering the opponent and venue. And he is getting valuable experience pitching for a team that has trouble scoring runs.
