Cubs: 10 Dodgers: 2 Urias, Bullpen Blow Chance

October 19, 2016

Julio Urias became the youngest pitcher to start a playoff baseball game. And with that you can always be sure that a day gives you some relevant information. A cool little factoid that will be bar trivia one day. Nobody’s gonna remember his actual outing though, right? That’s how this works? Who am I kidding, Julio Urias was pretty good until he wasn’t and the moment he fell off it…

It’s Game 3 at Chavez Ravine, and We Can’t Wait!

October 18, 2016

Pitching, pitching, pitching. That’s what wins ballgames, series’, and ultimately, championships. It’s also what the Dodgers had an abundance of in Game 2 against the Chicago Cubs. Clayton Kershaw retired 14 in a row before giving up a hit, and went on to finish with another excellent two innings. In the eighth, the skipper brought in Kenley Jansen to get the final six outs. And he did. With authority. Every…

Clayton Kershaw
October 16, 2016

The Dodgers look to rebound after last night’s trainwreck loss in game 1. The Dodgers blew a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the eighth inning as a tired Joe Blanton allowed five runs off of a grand slam home run to Miguel Montero and a solo home run to Dexter Fowler. The inning included some questionable moves from Dave Roberts. The two intentional walks to Jason Heyward and pinch-hitter Chris…

NLCS Game 1: Cubs 8 Dodgers 4 Trainwreck

October 15, 2016

What an absolute embarrassment. The Dodgers took game 1 and threw it right down the toilet with poor strategy and one bum reliever’s meatballs in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Dodgers had grabbed the momentum in the top of the eighth inning when Adrian Gonzalez’s two-out bases loaded single scored two runs to tie the game at 3-3. The Dodgers were down 3-1 entering that frame and were…
