Game 6, 2017

Dodgers at Rockies, 5:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, ROOTRM

LHP Clayton Kershaw will attempt to get his second win of the season today as he faces RHP Jon Gray. Kershaw went seven innings and allowed only two hits and one run to get the win Opening Day. Gray struck out seven in the first four innings of his game against the Brewers but collapsed in the fifth when he gave up five runs and got no outs, but the Rockies bailed him out and he escaped the loss.

Lineup when available.

  1. One to miss, I guess. Though, like RBI just having baseball is almost enough at this point.

    • Does take the sting out of this one. Honestly, I’m so happy it’s baseball season again that I barely care what the score is. For now…

  2. Joining in late on this one. I always feel a bit sadder when it is Kershaw taking the loss.

  3. On the bright side, Jhoulys Chacín is blanking the Gnats and BadGums through six.

    • Toles rounds the bases, gets high fives, gets a drink, sits down, and right on cue spits just as the camera puts him on TV. Either baseball players spit every 15 seconds or the voodoo camera makes them spit. Someone should apply for a grant to reveal the answer.

  4. No offense to Justin, but Arenado would a great player to have. On the radio yesterday Steiner and Monday were discussing the bar bets you could have discussing which third-baseman you’d like to have more — Arenado or the Birds’ Machado.

  5. After today’s outing v. the Fillies, Jeremy Guthrie’s ERA is 135 (yes, you read that right).

    As the late, great Gnatcaster Hank Greenwald would have said, “You get Aaron Nola 12 runs in the first, and he can be tough.”

  6. The OF-desperate Gnats have signed Mupton, who can at least catch the ball even if he can’t hit a lick.

  7. These are not your father’s Rox. Colorado pitchers last year ranked just below the better teams at seventh in the NL for ERA+ and fifth in FIP.

    • Solid lineup too. I’d pick them second behind the Dodgers in the division, genuine wild carders – barring further injuries.

      • I always have a soft spot for the Rockies. But however strong they start out, they almost always seem to wind up sputtering.
