NLCS Game Six, 2020

Braves vs Dodgers, 1:30 PM PDT, TV: FS1

RHP Walker Buehler goes for the Dodgers, LHP Max Fried for the Braves. This is a replay of the Game One matchup, in which Buehler went five innings, giving up one run on three hits. Unfortunately for him and the Dodgers, Fried went six innings, giving up only one run on four hits. The Dodgers lost that game when Blake Treinen and Jake McGee gave up four runs on two HRs in the ninth inning.

Here’s Will Smith’s AB against Will Smith, which the Dodgers’ Smith ultimately won:

Today in Dodgers’ history:

  • 1978 The Yankees capture their twenty-second and second consecutive World Championship, beating Los Angeles with a 7-2 victory at Dodger Stadium. Playoff hero Bucky Dent, who collects ten hits in the six-game series, is named the Fall Classic’s Most Valuable Player.
  • 2000 David Justice’s three-run homer propels the Yankees to their record 37th American League pennant in a come-from-behind victory over the Mariners, 9-7. The Bronx Bombers’ will face the Mets in the Fall Classic, setting up the first Subway Series in New York in 44 years when they faced the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1956.

  1. I’m sticking with the third part of my prediction made before yesterday’s game. Dodgers win a slugfest tomorrow, 9-7, to advance to the World Series.

  2. Long term I would be happy if Seager becomes the new JT postseason-wise.
    Short term – mash it JT.

  3. I wonder if they would like to walk Mookie to have Seager up with 2 on and 1 out? Rhetorical.

  4. Walker should pass his usual, lately, 4th inning barrier. Still, Doc will need to decide whether he goes to the pen, or brings in Goose to eat some innings and save some of his pen for tomorrow with another day’s rest.

    • Mookie bobbled it just a bit, otherwise I think he would have nailed Ozuna even if he had tagged properly.

      He threw that ball almost sidearm and was still on line.

  5. Not what I was hoping for, peeking in. One two three ninth, please.Heading back up the hill.

  6. The further we get, the more nervous I am. I may have to move to my “I can’t watch just tell me what happens” position.

  7. That’s 89 pitches for Buehler. I’d start him in the 7th and remove him as soon as one batter gets on.

  8. Needed: A quick start to worry Fried. A reasonable pitch count by Buehler. Hitting by our right-handed batters. Bellinger to get out of his mini-funk. I’m sticking with my prediction for this game: Buehler is dominant and we win, 7-1.
