Game 29, 2017

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

Righthander Jeff Samardzija (0-4, 6.32 ERA) will try to get his ship going in the right direction after a winless April. I’m not sure the Dodgers are the best team for him to face if that’s the goal, however: he’s 1-3 in six previous meetings with them. His last outing was his best of the year; he gave up three runs (two earned) while walking one and striking out five in seven innings as the Giants beat the Padres last Friday.

The LHP and no-longer-a-teenager Julio Urias (0-0, 1.59 ERA) will pitch for the Dodgers. His last appearance was his first of the year in the bigs against the Giants last Thursday. He went 5 2/3 innings, struck out four, walked four and gave up four hits but only one run.

Lineup when available.

    • Not sure he is the answer, but we seem to be heavy on the left side as regards young and upcoming outfielders. On the right side, after Puig, Franklin has already been injured once, not sure that SVS will turn around, Thompson has like one hit the whole year, Ebner looked less than sterling, Quique is actually an infielder.

        • Ha! Didn’t forget him but I faced an editorial decision. Couldn’t include him as a young and up and coming outfielder along with Joc, Toles, Bellinger and Verdugo on the left side.

  1. That might have been the dullest game of the year. It didn’t help that I had suffer through Steiner.

  2. I guess it was a little presumptuous in retrospect for Doc to play for the tie.

    • Ump made a terrible call on ball two (which was strike one) and next pitch hammered to bring in the run. Otherwise, Dayton hasn’t been finding the plate, except with nice juicy strikes to hit.

  3. Well, that may be that. They’ve out hit us all night. Had to catch up sometime.

  4. As long as JT’s okay, it’s as effective as any other offensive attack tonight.

  5. Puig could have been spiked during that play. Lucky it worked out the way it did.

        • To be fair to Taylor, he beat the throw but was stopped short of the bag by the middle infielder’s foot that blocked the bag. Slide feet first and that fielder would have a bloody ankle or worse.

  6. I’m blacked out, but even listening to Steiner I can figure out that Julito didn’t have much command.

  7. What a pleasure to once again hear (live) our treasure, Vin Scully!
