Game 65, 2016

Dodgers at Diamondbacks, 6:40PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FS-A, MLB.tv

Zack Greinke (8-3, 3.84 ERA) faces his former team for the first time, but he faced them before he ever became a Dodger too. He was 2-0 with a 2.52 ERA against them before 2012. Greinke has won five straight starts. He’ll be opposed by Mike Bolsinger (1-3, 5.75 ERA), who has yet to go past the sixth inning in any of his four starts.

Lineup:

  • Uribear hurt in terrible way.

  • WBBsAs

    Herr Scherzer pitching an extremely interesting game through 5-1/3 v. the Cubbies.

    Then, as quickly as I write that, Addison Russell dingers him.

  • WBBsAs

    OK, Ballslinger, there’s your run.

    • “Please, sir, might I have some more?”

  • That lead didn’t last long.

  • Bumsrap

    Hit it to the right fielder

  • Gopher balls!

    • WinnipegDave

      Bolsinger has been giving them up with great voracity this season.

      • WBBsAs

        His eventual role is long reliever/spot starter.

  • WinnipegDave

    Seager!

    • Bumsrap

      Take that Greinke

  • WinnipegDave

    Man. Turner hitting the ball long and hard but no luck.

  • Bumsrap

    Just the same, Greinke knows he threw another dinger. Turner’s blast was long enough.

  • Bumsrap

    Hit it to right

  • WinnipegDave

    Oh boy. If this was a playoff game I would be so crazy with frustration right now. So crazy.

  • WinnipegDave

    Love that Howel faced only one batter and got two outs – one in each inning he pitched!

  • WinnipegDave

    Why do we ever pitch to Goldschmidt? He too good.

    • Bumsrap

      Interesting how an inch one way or another can make a player a goat or a hero.

      • Bumsrap

        TWSS?

    • WBBsAs

      Because even the very best hitters make outs more frequently than they get hits.

  • WinnipegDave

    Ok Hernandez big moment here.

  • WinnipegDave

    Never mind.

  • WinnipegDave

    Ok Kendrick big moment here.

  • RBI

    Why can’t we hit when the bases are loaded?

    • WinnipegDave

      We can. We simply choose not to.

      • RBI

        That one was so close. Good knock by Howie.

  • WinnipegDave

    Feels like half the outs in this game are of the highlight variety.

  • scooplew

    0-for-11 with RISP. The season of our discontent rolls on.

    • RBI

      We are terrible with RISP. Just terrible.

      • scooplew

        Donald Trump would say, “Terrible, Terrible, Terrible.”

        • Bumsrap

          And raise conspiracy theories.

  • WinnipegDave

    Dodgers not good in 1 run games. 7-13 or something like that.

  • WinnipegDave

    See you tomorrow friends.

  • scooplew

    On the verge of falling six games back.

  • RISP = RISK for this Dodgers offense.
