Game 27, 2016

Dodgers at Rays, 4:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, Fox Sports Sun

Three ex-Rays are on the Dodgers roster these days, including lefty Scott Kazmir (1-2, 5.76 ERA). He’ll face lefty Matt Moore of the Rays (1-2, 3.66 ERA) in the first of an abbreviated two-game interleague series.

Lineup:

Somehow I doubt that Kiké ever expected to be a designated hitter. Pederson is starting against a lefty because Roberts likes his chances against Moore’s out pitch, a changeup.

Sorry for the delay. Here’s what caused it, and it ain’t done yet. For some reason the new router can’t see the printer, despite new cables from one to the other and countless imprecations directed at each.

  • WBBsAs

    I hate interleague play, especially in the AL park, even more so in baseball’s worst stadium.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Nice to see Howie hit the ball.

  • John_from_Aus

    lets get this run back quickly

    • Bob_Hendley

      How about two?

      • John_from_Aus

        I’ll raise you to three

  • Bob_Hendley

    There seem to be some Dodger fans there.

    • WBBsAs

      I doubt the Devil Rays have any fans whatsoever.

  • Bob_Hendley

    When it rains it pours!

    • WBBsAs

      Even inside a dome!

      • Bob_Hendley

        Nice Joc dinger against the southpaw.

  • Good start, Dodgers.

  • WBBsAs

    Kazmir stinks it up again.

  • John_from_Aus

    and we start all over again

  • HLKLA

    Tied, oh brother!

  • John_from_Aus

    Puig didn’t advance as well on the wild pitch?

    • WBBsAs

      I’m surprised he didn’t but, with the subsequent walk, it doesn’t matter.

      • John_from_Aus

        He was waiting for the easier walk

  • John_from_Aus

    Nice Howie!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Howie wowie!

  • John_from_Aus

    The bats are alive!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Howie the one experienced in playing there who takes the pop up.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Nine Ks!

    • WBBsAs

      Imperfect but encouraging outing.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Getting well.

  • HLKLA

    Puig!

    • WBBsAs

      Monster shot.

      • HLKLA

        With two strikes no less.

  • Okay, guys. Put a lid on it. Save some runs for tomorrow.

  • RBI

    Glad to see the hit parade.

  • HLKLA

    Good grief Howell!

  • HLKLA

    A good win!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Jansen picks up a cheap save.

    • John_from_Aus

      very cheap, I still don’t think I understand the save rule fully

      • Bob_Hendley

        Potential tying run only needs to be on deck.

        • John_from_Aus

          thanks

      • WBBsAs

        All you need to know is that it’s the worst statistic in the game.

  • RBI

    Woo-HOO!!!

  • In case you missed it, Dodgers pitcher Josh Ravin was suspended for 80 games for PEDs. He was on the 60-day DL already with a broken arm sustained in a car accident during Spring Training.
