Game 17, 2017

Dodgers at Diamondbacks, 6:40PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FS-A

There’s another lefty on the hill in this game, but for a change it’s the Dodgers’ pitcher. Alex Wood (1-0, 1.00 ERA, 8K) takes the injured Rich Hill’s spot tonight against the D-Backs’ righty Taijuan Walker (2-1, 3.94, 16K). Wood has made one previous start this season. He went 3 2/3 innings against the Cubs on April 10, walked five, struck out four and gave up only one earned run. He’s pitched an additional 5 1/3 innings of relief this year. Walker allowed one run in five innings with seven strikeouts against the Dodgers on April 16 and got the win.

Lineup when available.

  1. I am glad I was not a witness to that eighth-inning train wreck. I told Mom those kind of innings are infuriating if you’re watching but funny if you find out about them after the fact, as I did. I served up dinner just as Avilan walked in the tying run 5-5 and I was blissfully unaware of what occurred thereafter.

  2. Just need back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back to back.

  3. I just sneaked a look. As Dick Enberg would say, “Oh my!” When no pitcher has reached the 7th inning this season except for Kershaw, eventually the bullpen, which had been pitching well, will blow up. G’night all.

  4. Went out to dinner and I’ve been following on Gameday until the point when the pen imploded.

  5. I’m late to the party, but by no means is the game over by the looks of it.

  6. Wild and crazy inning in a wild and crazy game. Stuck ball sends Goldy back to second. Overthrow from Toles sends him back to third. Not to mention Utley’s horizontal catch!

  7. Taylor’s second big league homer. We got him in a trade last June from Seattle for former first-round pick (2010) Zach Lee, who was waived by the Mariners and is now with the Padres.

  8. Some excellent at bats in this game from Puig and Joc, even though they wound up with outs.

    • Didn’t see it, but last time out the addition of a slider has really upped his game.

  9. Catching this sporadically. Seems that Joc has taken to being in the lead off slot.

  10. Grandal is giving them extra bases one after another. Not to mention Baez can’t find home plate. Jeeze.

  11. I know that a Giants win over the Rockies helps us in the standings, but I just can’t root for the boys in orange and black.

  12. Giants’ Madison Bumgarner Placed On Disabled List After Suffering Injuries In Dirt Bike Accident, Won’t Start Against Dodgers
