Game 32, 2015

Marlins at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA

Old friend Dan Haren goes for the Fish against Dodger farmhand Mike Bolsinger. Haren has become the most dependable starter the Marlins have, going 4-1 this season and winning his last three outings. His ERA is a sparkling 2.68.

Bolsinger is up from Oklahoma City for his second start with the big club. He did well in his first one back on April 23, going 5 2/3 innings while giving up 1 run and striking out 5 while walking 2. That was the second game in a row that the Giants beat the Dodgers on a walkoff hit. It was the game that Kendrick saved in the eighth inning with a horizontal dive to catch a ball headed for center field.

Lineup:


Poor Scott Van Slyke. Throw a guy out at the plate, hit a walkoff home run two innings later, and get dropped to the 8th spot in the batting order the next day.

Game 15, 2015

Dodgers at Giants, 12:45PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLBN, CSN-BA

The Dodgers try to salvage one game of the three-game series behind the pitching of Mike Bolsinger, who’s fresh off being named the PCL Pitcher of the Week. In two starts with Triple-A Oklahoma City this year, the right-hander struck out 17 batters while allowing three hits and three walks over 11 innings. He also has a 0.00 ERA.

Ryan Vogelsong will go for the Giants. He’s been a starter for the previous four years he’s been with the team, but this year he’s made three appearances and two have been in relief. He’s 0-1 with a 10.45 ERA over 10.1 innings, giving up 20 hits and 9 walks while striking out 10.

Lineup when available.

Game 18, 2014

Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 5:10PM PST, TV: SPNLA

The D-Backs send rookie Mike Bolsinger, who’s got all of three innings of MLB experience, and that was last week in relief against the Mets. The Dodgers counter with Dan Haren, whose last outing was against the same D-Backs last Saturday. He went 5 2/3 innings and got the win, but he wasn’t happy with his performance.

Lineup:
