Game 20, 2017

Dodgers at Giants, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, NBCS-BA+, MLBN (out-of-market only)

Lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu (0-3, 5.87 ERA) pitches for the Dodgers, and his record shows he’s having trouble getting back to his form of two years ago before surgeries. He’s given up six HRs in 15 1/3 innings and opponents are hitting .306 against him. RHP Matt Cain (1-0, 3.31 ERA) was thought to be mostly done as a starting pitcher and his opening start seemed to reinforce that belief, but then he turned around and had two very good outings. He’s given up 3 HRs in 16 1/3 innings and his opponents’ BA is a paltry .238.

Lineup when available.

    • Huh. There have to have been at least half-a-dozen Lithuanians in the NBA. Heck, U of Hawai’i may have had a b-ball player from there. It’s had a couple of guys from Serbia on the basketball team over the years, and its men’s volleyball team could be fielded by the UN. This year alone it’s got guys from The Netherlands, Norway, Bulgaria and England in addition to California, Michigan and Hawai’i.

    • These last two years have proven they can’t have enough depth.
      But at least these aren’t “stupid” injuries.

  1. About to start watching, but in bed on the iPad, since it’s nearly 11 pm in Michigan. Only 8 pm California time, but we had barely three hours sleep yesterday.

  2. Annoying that the Dodgers are healing the giants ERA with nary a murmur of protest so far, to channel the immortal Vin.

  3. Announcer pet peeve: “Fielder X picks up the ball and throws to first. They made a great play and knew exactly who was running.”

    Of course they knew who was running. It was the person who one second ago was batting.

    Rant over.

    But feeling feisty tonight so there may be more.

  4. Just got home. Grrrrr. The Giants had allowed 26 runs in their last three games. Granted that they were in Colorado, but still, we have two hits through seven innings?

  5. I see where Joc went on the DL. I wish we had brought up Bellinger instead of Eibner.

    • Perhaps the caught stealing will be a blessing in disguise as Seager leads off the top of 9.

  6. Surprised they didn’t pause to see about a review. That looked pretty close to me.

  7. Humiliating way to end the game. Inexcusable for a veteran like Turner to be picked off like that. Inexcusable. Was it the right call or did the umpire blow it?
