Going down the checklist

Last night I noted what the Dodgers might need to do to win a game five. How did they do?

Corey Seager to get a hit outside of the 1st inning  – negatory

Rich Hill to get fifteen outs and a lead – negatory

Yaz Grandal to not leave the bases loaded – another bad game

Adrian Gonzalez to continue on the hot streak he started Wednesday – negatory

Turner to continue to break postseason records – Booming game-deciding triple

Trea Turner to never reach base – only once in five at-bat, and did not score

Daniel Murphy to stop tormenting the Dodgers – it took Kershaw but it worked

Werth to remember he’s an old shaggy dog left fielder – he was still a bit of a thorn but he did get thrown out at home in an important play of the game

Josh Reddick to not make Dodger fans wish Puig was starting – I think we all felt Puig would have thrown out the Nationals first run of the game

Toles a chance to use his speed – he did get to the ball faster than the 3rd base coach expected and his relay to Seager was a big part of why Werth was dead meat at home

The bullpen to continue to do what they do – it was  not conventional and there was one hiccup but all in all, THEY KICKED ASS




  1. Last night on the TBLA game thread chat I did have one cool moment.
    As Joc was swinging I posted this

    After Joc hits his solo home run do you let Urias hit?

    By the time the post appeared, the home run was on the way. Woo hoo

    Just before Turner’s triple I was going to post “Balls to the walls” , just because of the way the Dodgers had been playing .
