Sweep The Snakes


Tonight, Rich Hill goes against lefty Robby Ray.  Hill recently added a cutter to his repertoire, and the results so far are very good.  He has made it through seven innings in each of his last two starts.  On July 1st, Hill gave up just four hits, one walk, and no runs while striking out eleven batters in seven innings.

  1. I hope rich hill keeps his hitting strong, may need his bat too to get that elusive run. It seems to me that Kershaw, Wood and Hill could be our Play-off rotation if they keep their recent pitching going in to October.
    I know the Cubs and Nationals. Red Sox, Astros and perhaps Indians have a good staff, but right now snakes and Dodgers are the top two pitching stat leaders. So tonight is a big statement game. Lets have a sweep.

  3. I am happy for Justin Turner but just as happy this whole process is completed. The idea a team (or fan club) could “job” the system by getting people together in a room to do nothing but vote should be just one reason to find another way to select the teams. However, with all the attention given to the selection and then the game, I suppose this is just another marketing tool to help promote major league baseball so I doubt we will see any changes soon.


    • The joke of voting players on the team should give them a clue to not tack any significance to the game itself other than it being an exhibition. Attaching the WS home field advantage to it is ridiculous.


      • Hear! Here!

        This is why I could care less about the All Star game. That and it’s a farce on the field as far as competitiveness goes, too.

        I’m glad Turner got in… it’s a big deal for a player maybe MLB should look at it that way.

        Now let’s get Wood Boat in…

  4. I’m going with…

    Without the extra muscle Forsythe added holding Doc back the other day, I don’t know if that ball gets up and over the wall?

  5. do you feel the play off atmosphere, a win would really be cool, props to hill’s pitching, and this Dodgers team just responds, my bet, JT hits the game winning hit

  6. Runs have been hard to come by in this series for both teams. Rich Hill did his job. The boys will need some come from behind dramatics to win this one.

  7. In a weird and empathetic way, I felt really bad for Rodney. How the heck do blow a three-run lead, leave with the bases still loaded, never record an out…and you’re the closer? Baseball!?!??!!?!?!?

  8. Woo-Hoo!!! Win Streak!!!

    Unbelievable, outstanding, incredible, etc…. What a comeback. Definately not a Dildon team…. Thank You FAZ. I think getting rid of Dildon was one of the best decisions this FO has made.

  9. I shut the game off heading into the bottom of the 9th. I told myself as I did, that they’ve beat`n Rodney before and you just watch, they’re gonna beat him again. Zzzzzzzzzz…


  10. I’ve been reading bits and pieces on Clay “Big Bombay” Bellinger. He was quite the ballplayer himself. He could handle every position except pitcher and catcher.

    • Clay was born and raised in Oneonta, NY, a town of 13,000 in the middle of New York State, about 25 miles from Cooperstown. He went to Rollins College in Florida, a school that Rube Waddell attended back in the day. Clay was drafted in the second round by the Giants in 1989, then spent about ten years in the minor leagues before being called up by the New York Yankees. Clay helped the Yankees win the 2000 World Series by robbing Mets’ Todd Zeile of a home run in Game 2. Clay Bellinger has at least two World Series rings.


  11. Dodgers have won 23 of their last 27 games. They need to win just 19 of their next 23 games to repeat the 42-8 run of 2013.


  12. What an eventful week, Roberts gets in a confrontation and gets ejected, Kershaw says forget about it, to the AS game, Im pitching for the Dodgers, JT gets to go to AS game, On dave roberts bobblehead night, his daughter and son get share memories and participate in the ceremonies, and the Dodgers pull out a ninth inning come back to sweep the second place team on that bobblehead game, and now Alex wood, most deserving, gets an AS nod. Like I said I hope this is a peek, and not the peak, of a great season.
