Game 132, 2016

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

It’s a battle of lefties tonight. The Dodgers send Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09 ERA) out for his second start since being acquired at the trade deadline, and the Rockies counter with Tyler Anderson (4-5, 3.69 ERA). In his first outing for the Dodgers Hill went six scoreless innings against the Giants; in his last start Anderson gave up two runs in five innings against the Brewers.

Lineup:

  • HLKLA

    I hope he can throw a no hitter today. He will need to with that line up behind him.

    • John_from_Aus

      on the bright side, we have an awesome bench tonight

    • WBBsAs

      Strong bench, though.

    • Bumsrap

      I can’t resist this–strong bench though!

    Reporting from Coors Field (Day 2): First of all, my apologies for last night. At least we didn’t get shut out. Thank you, Toles. I am underwhelmed by our lineup tonight. It is raining, but it should clear up soon. By the way, in response to a comment last night, the beer here is quite good.

      There’s an Argentine pizzeria and ice cream shop nearby: http://www.bapizza.com.

      I also recommend the empanadas.

  • scooplew

    Raining real hard now.

    • WBBsAs

      Are you under cover?

      • scooplew

        Yes, thankfully. We are on the club level, indoors. Parts of the field are in deep water. I can’t see the game being played.

  • WinnipegDave

    Are they still thinking they will play tonight? Regardless, glad to see Seager out. He needs a breather after getting plunked twice last night. Let the swelling go down.

    • WBBsAs

      He was expected to sit even before the HBP.

      • scooplew

        Rainout looks likely. We are in the center of a storm cell. Hail predicted.

        • WBBsAs

          Well, I hope you get your ticket refunded.

          • Bob_Hendley

            Seems like tailor-made for a day-night doubleheader on Weds.

  • scooplew

    It has stopped raining!

  • scooplew

    Rainout. Day-night DH tomorrow.

    • HLKLA

      I hope you are not too disappointed. It is a bummer that you made this special trip and the game gets rained out. Can you go tomorrow?

      • scooplew

        A friend from Chicago and I bought tickets for all three games. Hoping the skies are clear tomorrow afternoon. Won’t see tomorrow night’s game because I have an evening flight back to San Jose. Had a long conversation with a couple of big Dodgers fans from Colorado Springs and chatted with a guy who pitched minor league baseball 60 years ago. Evening turned out pretty well. Thanks for your post.

  • WBBsAs

    Snakes have taken the lead over the Gnats. 2-1 in the fifth. Greinke throwing lotsa pitches, though.

  • WBBsAs

    Snakes now lead 4-1, after Beef Wellington delivers a two-run single off Cueto, who’s knocked out of box.

  • NPUT @1100 PT Wednesday, 8/31.

  • WBBsAs

    When I fell asleep, Greinke had just surrendered an RBI double to Flash-in-the-Panik. It shoulda been a triple, but a Gnatfan reached over the fence to keep him at second – possibly the difference in the game.
