Tonight’s game features Julio Urias (0-0, 1.59 ERA) versus Jeff Samardzija (0-4, 6.32 ERA). Given that (a) this is baseball and (b) it’s the Dodgers, the offense will likely have a tough time against Samardzija. I am curious to see which left-handed hitter will be playing first base tonight. Will Adrian Gonzalez get another day of rest and recovery? Or will Bellinger play left field, with Toles manning center field?
Last night, the offense went off. Does that prove they can hit left-handers? No, it proves that Matt Moore was having a hard time throwing strikes last night.
