Game 147, 2015

Pirates at Dodgers, 6:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA

The Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw (14-6, 2.12 ERA) pitches tonight against the Pirates’ Francisco Liriano (10-7, 3.45 ERA). Kershaw has an unusual streak going: in each of his last seven starts he’s given up no more than one run. He’s going for his tenth straight win tonight. The left-handed Liriano had a lousy outing last time he pitched, but he’s 3-0 lifetime against the Dodgers. Two guys who’ve had success against him in the past are Heisey (.333 in 15 ABs) and Kendrick (.438 in 16 ABs).

Lineup when available.

  1. Last night I went to my 50th high school graduation reunion in Tacoma. One of the nostalgia questions the emcee asked was “Who won the World Series in 1965?” Before I could even raise my hand, an old friend I hadn’t seen in many years leapt up and said the Dodgers, and that he had always been a Dodger fan (which I didn’t know).

  2. Jeepers, fewer than 20 comments for an entire game? Sometimes the other pitcher’s just on his game, and it looked like Liriano was from the innings I saw (early).

    • I was flying home from a PA. family wedding, and was too exhausted when we got home to do much of anything. I figure I’m usually worth at least twenty comments!

  3. This game won’t matter by the time October rolls around, but it stings tonight. Hate losing when Kershaw is pitching and when they had a chance to distance themselves from SF and NY. Had they somehow swept Pittsburg they would have had the same record as them.

  4. Last chance saloon for the Dodgers in the bottom of the ninth. Perhaps another extra-inning game tonight would be alright.

  5. Dodgers not hitting tonight. Tough losing Kershaw starts (if the score holds) but better now than next month.

  6. Been spoiled by the last 2 games pitched by Wood and Greinke. By comparison, Kershaw looks like he is struggling.

  7. I’m gonna miss tonight’s game due to other commitments, will just be looking in on phone from time to time. Still, I expect we’ll be looking at six around 10 p.m.
