Game 129, 2014

Padres at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSSD

Clayton Kershaw tries to shake off the loss he took in his last outing. He’s still 14-3 with a 1.86 ERA. He’ll face Tyson Ross, who is 11-11 with a 2.70 ERA and has worked into the sixth inning or later 20 of his last 24 starts.

Ryu has played catch on flat ground the last two days and continues to work toward pitching off a mound. Uribe took batting practice before yesterday’s game.

  1. Does Kenley live off of drama?
    “Uneventful” is good for plane rides and closer outings.

  2. Good news: Kersh can’t lose.
    Better news: he might get the win.
    Yea, Justin!
    Go, Kenley!

    • You are gracious towards Ross and from what I’ve heard before, he probably deserves it.
      But the Dodger bats disappear more often than animals or people or things 3 1/2 miles from me (the Las Vegas Strip showrooms).
      Ross is the real thing, but too often this year, Blue batters have made wannabes look like the real thing.
      Yes, I’m frustrated with this underachieving team — especially with another gem by Kersh.

      • Even the pundits are saying that Tyson Ross was dealing. Honestly, he was matching Kersh pitch for pitch, and then some. His slider was insanely hard to see. Thank goodness Clay is such a professional.

  3. Kersh is back on HIS game . . . but I’m sure he doesn’t wanna play for a tie . . .

    • Had expected some success, tho — especially with Ross’ record with runners.

  4. I like what’s posted on “Dodgers find a decent replacement for Greinke”

    Hopefully decent to everyone except Padre batters!

  5. Cubs bent but didn’t break — they beat SF 2-1!
    Giants matched an exercise in futility I remember by the Dodgers: 11 hits, just 1 run. (The Cubbies had but 3 hits and scored their 2 in the 1st — two nights ago!)

    I hope that frustration carries into the regular SF game!

  6. Let’s go, Cubs (x2)!

    But Dodgers, you gotta do it — you control your own destiny. Hope someone put the wakeup call in for the bats.
