Game 135, 2016

Padres at Dodgers, 6:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSSD

The Dodgers ask lefty Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09 ERA) to make his second start for them. Lingering blister troubles kept him off the mound for a month after he was acquired at the trade deadline. He’ll face RHP Luis Perdomo (7-7, 5.84 ERA). The rookie pitched his first complete game his last time out and got six double plays in the game to help him do it. That shouldn’t have been a surprise; his ground ball rate is 60%, the highest in the NL.

Kershaw is pitching a three-inning or 50-pitch rehab start for Rancho Cucamonga today.

Lineup when available.

    Big day for Dodger prospects in the playoffs, if they make them.

  • WBBsAs

    De Leon said he wanted to make the big leagues this year so Vin Scully would call his debut.— Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick) September 3, 2016

    Rich is doing his job . . . c’mon, bats!
    Win for Vin!

    • WBBsAs

      Perdomo looks really good as well, though.

  • WBBsAs

    ¿Dónde están todos?

    • Bob_Hendley

      Cenando, Che.

    • RBI

      Exercisio.

      • WBBsAs

        *Haciendo ejercicio.

        • RBI

          Si.

          • WBBsAs

            *Sí.

  • Bob_Hendley

    At a dinner party. Snuck a peek under the table to find an interesting game.

  • Woot for Grandal!

  • RBI

    Reddick!!! (Also Grandal!!!)

  • Bob_Hendley

    Josh, on fire!

    • RBI

      Maybe Puig in the wings focused him.

  • WinnipegDave

    Feels like I missed everything good in the game. Hill’s pitching, Grandal’s hr – and wonder of wonders – Reddick’s hr! Not much left except wrap it up.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Bring us home, Dave.

      • WinnipegDave

        Do my best. 🙂

    • RBI

      I’m glad you’re here now!

      • WinnipegDave

        Thank you! Hope you have a fun game to watch tomorrow!

  • RBI

    Blanton may finally be tiring.

  • RBI

    Good job, Blanton.

  • WinnipegDave

    Sad that this didn’t happen before today, but glad it has occurred – the first female baseball announcer in Canada. Special interest to me and WBBsAs.

  • RBI

    I just learned how to do accents. Let’s see if it works on Kikè. Yes!

    • WinnipegDave

      Well done! Is it Kikè or Kiké? I can never recall.

      • RBI

        Probably Kiké! Ha!

      • Bob_Hendley

        KeeKay

    • WBBsAs

      In Spanish, “Kike” would not have an accent but, because of potential linguistic misunderstandings, they spell it with one. “Quique” makes more sense to me.

      • A-Gon has been pushing his fellow players to put the accents on their uniform backs all year. At least 20 players have followed his lead.

        • WBBsAs

          Hernández does have an accent.

  • WinnipegDave

    Such a fun pitching weekend for the Dodgers: Urias, Hill and JDL. Plus 3 innings of 1 hit, 5 k pitching by Kershaw. Feather in the hat of the guy who got the hit – even if it was just a high chopper out in front of the plate.

    • RBI

      Can’t wait to see… wait for it… José.

      • WinnipegDave

        Nicé.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Geronimo!

  • WinnipegDave

    We win!

    • Bob_Hendley

      Good job.

      • WinnipegDave

        Ha!

  • WinnipegDave

    Handshakes, hugs and high fives!

  • Bob_Hendley

    Woo Hoo?

  • RBI

    Woo-HOO!!!! Sorry, doing dishes…

  • WBBsAs

    It appears that Dave may spend the day indoors: https://twitter.com/Wpg_Goldeyes/status/772447218624102400
