He’s been on a roll recently, going 5-1 in his last seven starts while posting a 3.71 ERA.

In case you missed it, here’s a great throw (Pederson) and tag (Utley) from yesterday’s game:

  1. Rox swatt Gnats for six runs in the third, and lead 6-0 in Denver. Gnatt Cain replaces Gnatt Moore.

  2. The single yesterday on the bunt with the throwing error has been changed by the official scorer to an error, so JDL ERA is 4.50 instead of 6.00 and he has a QS for his first start in the majors.

  3. Grant nostalgically recalls the Gnats’ traditional June swoon, which didn’t happen this year: “The September Dismember doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.”

  4. This game is moving along nicely. Paused the game right before AGon’s hr. What a nice treat to come back to after putting my son to bed.

  5. Glad Kenta got the hit, but don’t want it to affect his mound mojo.
    A great solution would be for someone to hit another dinger so he can trot in.

  6. If I had known the Dodgers were going to hit so many hrs, I would have been a bit less excited about AGON’S.

  7. The Dodgers’ chances of having 5 guys with 20 or more home runs greatly improved tonight.

    • Seager might get one more chance if the Dodgers get about 3 or 4 base runners in the next few innings.

  8. Subject to change because the base runners are still Maeda’s responsibility but the game scores for the starting pitchers: Maeda 75. Grienke 2.

    2!

  9. Hey Bob H. Do you know if the Dodgers have ever had a team with 5 hitters with 20 or more hrs?

  10. Interesting to note that Grandal, despite a relatively low batting average, is out-OPS’ing the Busted Poseur and is only slightly behind Wilson Ramos. When Grandal connects with one, as he did last night, it really jumps off his bat.
