Game 70, 2016

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

The opposing pitchers today have known one another for more than ten years, as teammate, roomie, and good friend. Mike Bolsinger of the Dodgers brings his 1-4, 5.76 ERA to bear against the Brewers’ Chase Anderson, who’s 4-6 with a 4.42 ERA.

They lived together from their time in Double-A up to their rookie seasons in Arizona. Bolsinger was the best man at Anderson’s wedding in 2013. When Bolsinger married in January, Anderson was in the wedding party.

They want to beat each other, of course.

Lineup:

Gracious, I hope Howie hasn’t forgotten how to play second base. He seems to have played almost everywhere but there this season.

  1. Woo hoo, to borrow a phrase from RBI; Joc is leading off.

    I would like to see the youngsters bunched together, not because it would be a better lineup, just because they might get a kick out of it.

    Joc, Trace, Cory, Justin, Agon, etc. etc.

  2. The Dodgers are hitting ..232 overall, second worst in the NL. The club is batting .204 in June, worst in the majors. We hit .241 in April and .239 in May. The ERA is 3.37, fourth best in the league. It was 3.66 in April, 3.18 in May and is 3.25 in June. Our fielding percentage is .987, third best.

  3. In case you weren’t listening at the start of the game, Vin announced Monday night’s matchup as Kershaw v. Steven Spielberg.

  4. I would be content if Turner had 3 rbi’s every game from here on out.
