Game 109, 2014

Braves at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA

Mr. Kershaw brings his 12-2, 1.76 ERA record to the hill tonight to face right-hander Julio Teheran and his 10-6, 2.71 ERA record. He missed his spots the other night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but I imagine he’ll do a little better tonight.

Here’s the lineup:

  • John_from_Aus

    It’s great to finally have a steady, consistent lineup

  • John_from_Aus
  • WBBsAs

    Nice to see Kemp lay off the borderline slider and take the BB.

  • John_from_Aus

    Just tuned in to the game. 1) It’s great we are leading
    2) It’s great that Puig has homered again

  • John_from_Aus

    Nice way to erase a threat by getting a DP at 3rd and 2nd

  • John_from_Aus

    Just saw vision of the great play by Gordon in the 4th (that was amazing!)

    • RBI

      I’m at the game, and I couldn’t believe my eyes!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Upton more used to swinging wildly for his Ks.

  • John_from_Aus

    With our bats showing a bit more signs of life and if both Haren and Beckett can rediscover some of their early season form, I think we are going to be OK

    • WBBsAs

      Do you have MLBTV yet, John?

      • John_from_Aus

        No, I’m a bit worried I would watch/follow it even more than I do now 🙂

        • WBBsAs

          Given the time difference, I wouldn’t think that would be an issue.

          • John_from_Aus

            It’s more balancing around home and family time and work etc ( I know I couldn’t resist)

    • Bob_Hendley

      Tough to expect Beckett and Haren return to early season form. Seems likely that we will still need to go at least for a 4 or 5 in the market. More may become available as playoff hopes diminish for more teams. .

  • Bob_Hendley

    As shakey as Dee looked at SS, he seems so solid at second base in such a short time.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    C’mon, Kersh — close it out.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Get the K or double play!

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Kid K!
    One more . . .

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    C’mon, overturn!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Painful wait.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Tough to overturn.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Darn!
    Glad to hear Kersh was keeping warm . . . I wondered why League didn’t do that when I was there several weeks ago.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Not a shutout, but still a W!

  • Six straight!

  • scooplew

    Whew!

  • 9-hit scattered.

    • WBBsAs

      Shoulda been eight-hitter shutout. Actually mighta been fewer hits – several balls fell in front of Puig, who may have been playing too deep. Unfamiliarity with position.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Anyone know what Zack’s pitch count was last night?
    I bet he argues HARD to stay in next time.

    • Bob_Hendley

      110

      • Bob_in_Vegas

        OK — he would’ve lost that argument.

  • scooplew

    Kershaw lowered his league-leading ERA from 1.76 to 1.71 tonight, raised his league-leading winning percentage from .857 to .867, and increased his league-leading complete-game total from four to five. His next scheduled start is Tuesday at home vs. the Angels.
