Tonight is the rubber game between the Dodgers and the Giants. The Dodgers carry a five game lead into this game, eleven games left in the season, and a magic number of seven. Starting pitchers tonight are right handed Kenta Maeda against left handed Matt Moore. The Dodgers offense was 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position last night. Their poor performance against left handed pitchers is a known quantity. How they will deal with that down the stretch and into the playoffs remains to be seen.
This won’t be Vin Scully’s last called game against the Giants, as he will be travelling up to the Phone Booth to call the last three games of the season. He also has four more home games after this one.
Go Dodgers! Win for Vin!
