Game 69, 2016

Brewers at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSWI

The Brewers send out righthander Zach Davies (5-3, 2.88 ERA), who’s 23. He’ll face the 19-year-old Julio Urias, who’ll be making his fifth start. He’s 0-2 with a 5.82 ERA, but he’s improved each time out, and if the Dodgers’ offense was consistent he’d have a better record. Davies has allowed just two earned runs in the 21 innings he’s pitched in June and has lowered his ERA in each of his last five starts.

Urias probably only has two or three more starts with the Dodgers before they put him in the bullpen in the bigs or down at OK City, because they’re trying to limit the number of pitches he’s going to throw this season. The plan is still a little vague.

  1. Just got home and as I went to Gameday read that Turner had gotten the game-winning hit. Now looking back on the details, it appears that I saved myself three hours of tension and aggravation.

    • Ha. Me too. I finished dinner and turned it back on in the top of the 10th and struggled like Baez did to get them out, and then got to see JT do his heroic thing for the third time in the game.

  2. For whatever reason, it feels to me like the Brewers scored 20 runs and not 2 last inning.

  3. I am back East for a family wedding and vacation. Every time I check in on our team, we are doing worse. And the Gnats are winning at an insane rate. I despair!

    • The up vote is for: family, wedding, and vacation.
      The up vote is NOT for: LA doing worse, SF winning, and despair.
