Game 138, 2016

Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FS-A

The D-Backs send out RHP Shelby Miller, who has disappointed them this season. He and Greinke were the two big acquisitions the team made to bolster their pitching staff last offseason, and Miller’s 2-10, 6.81 ERA record is not at all what management had in mind when they got him. He’ll face another righty, Ross Stripling (3-6, 4.16 ERA). The Dodgers’ expectations of him were not highly publicized at the start of the year. He’s had trouble recently: he’s winless in his last four starts and has an 5.09 ERA over that period, but the Dodgers haven’t hit much behind him.

  2. Jansen in. Glad he had the night off yesterday. Keeps him fresh for today and if necessary tomorrow.

  3. Finally getting to watch! Looks like all the excitement happened early on. Let’s win this one, guys.

  4. Nice inning . . . and bittersweet — Vin is now off the radio and the time to enjoy him is dwindling . . . but always treasured.

  5. I have really enjoyed these games of late. Yes the wins, of course, but it’s always wonderful seeing the new and/or young players playing well. Urias, JDL, Toles, Hill and of course Seager have made for some great viewing. Yesterday when the top 5 hr hitters for the Dodgers all hit hrs – that seemed very special as well.

  6. Pollock got a room service bounce off the wall and Segura really winged it home to nail Josh.

  7. Nothing personal, but regarding Link’s first sentence of this post, I hope Miller disappoints for at least one game more.

    • We face them half-a-dozen more times, so let’s say we hope Miller is cause for disappointment for the rest of the season when the D-Backs play the Dodgers. Let him revert to last year’s form if he pitches against the Giants.
