Game 108, 2016

Dodgers at Rockies, 5:40PM PT, TV: SPNLA, ROOTRM

Kenta Maeda (9-7, 3.23 ERA) takes the mound for the Dodgers hoping to salvage one game from this series. He’ll face the Rockies’ Tyler Chatwood (10-6, 3.50 ERA). Maeda has made two starts against the Rockies this year and been dominant, giving up only one run over 13 innings. Chatwood’s made two starts against the Dodgers; he gave up three runs in only four innings the first time out but one run on only one hit over eight innings in his second game against them.

  1. The Fillies did their part the past couple days, but couldn’t keep it up. Today, the Dodgers will have to help themselves.

    • 4th inning is actually his best. Worst is the 7th followed by 6th and 5th. This is probably not very comforting.

  2. Might have gone one more batter with Maeda. Give him a chance to finish the inning.

      • I wonder if the first base coach had time to tell him to run. Also, it took a bad throw from CF to put Arenado in position to throw that quickly to first. The CF throw was off line and an accurate throw would have at least made Arenado make a tag on Kendrick, making Joc safe at second.

        I’m okay with runners trying to take that extra base, especially when an outfielder goes for the front runner.

  3. Here’s hoping for Dodger handshakes and hugs after Kenley finishes pitching.

    • Last 54. Can we win 30 or 32 games? That would probs get us into the playoffs.

      • Tough row to hoe without Clayton. The FO’s depth approach certainly being tested. Anderson to the rescue!?

      • With a healthy Kershaw, the Dodgers would probably lead the division by now. I’m cautiously optimistic he’ll be back at month’s end, but maybe Rich Hill can pick up the slack? The Dodgers have loads of young starting talent, but it’s not quite ready to step in.
