Game 75, 2016

Dodgers at Pirates, 4:05PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLBN (out-of-market only), ROOT Sports

To start this game the Dodgers brought up Nick Tepesch from OKlahoma City, where he’d achieved a 2.00 ERA in 18 innings. They acquired him as a free agent June 6 after he was released by the Texas Rangers, where’d he spent five years, mostly in their minor league system. He has a 9-17 record and a 4.56 ERA in the big leagues, all with the Rangers. His opponent will be Jameson Taillon, who’s 1-1 with a 3.50 ERA in his previous three big league starts.

To make room for Tepesch on the roster, the Dodgers designated Will Venable for assignment.

  1. Frustrating loss. Never could get over the hump. Had the bullpen been perfect, and it has been very good lately, things might have been different. I don’t expect that Tepesch will remain on the roster. Here’s hoping that the Phillies can beat the Giants tonight and keep us only 6 out.

  2. This is a frustrating tit for tat game. I’d love for us to get more tats than them.

      Maybe we will win this one 11-10.

      Might just.

  3. I thought this before the first pitch: Nick Tepesch is the best alternative that Friedman and Zaidi could come up with?
