The boys in blue’s four-run seventh inning rally propelled them to the win. Joc Pederson’s solo home run and Justin Turner’s two-run triple was the catalyst for the incredible rally.

October 13, 2016

Legacies are on the line today during the crucial game 5 of the NLDS between the Nationals and the Dodgers. One team will be moving on to face the Cubs in the NLCS and one team will go fishing. The Nationals have and Dodgers have been snake bitten in the NLDS.  One team will shed that label and one will have to answer a lot of questions. Rich Hill 0-1…

After the Dodgers allowed a close game to get away from them yesterday in Game 3 of the NLDS to fall behind 2-1 to the Washington Nationals.  The big question leading up to today’s game was whether the Dodgers should go with Clayton Kershaw on short rest or Julio Urias.  The Dodgers with their backs against the wall decided to go with Kershaw.  This was an elimination game for the Dodgers…

Clayton Kershaw-
October 11, 2016

The definition of the word déjà vu is…. well here, I’ll copy and paste the meaning for you. Literally “already seen”, is the phenomenon of having the strong sensation that an event or experience currently being experienced has already been experienced in the past. That’s where we are right now. We’re stuck in déjà vu land with the Dodgers. After losing 8-3 in pathetic fashion to the Nationals in game…

Nationals 8 Dodgers 3: The Brink

October 10, 2016

With the Dodgers and Nationals tied 1-1 they played a potentially decisive game three at Dodger stadium. The home team sent out a tired/maybe rusty Kenta Maeda and the Nationals sent out lefty Gio Gonzalez. That’s all you really need to know about this game, but I’ll give you guys a recap if you really want it. The game started out, making me want to vomit as Kenta Maeda had zero…

I’m not ready to panic yet, but I am sure some of you are. The Dodgers and Nationals split the two games in Washington over the weekend and the series returns to Dodgers Stadium with the two clubs tied at one game each.

Lobaton’s Homer Crushes Dodger Momentum in NLDS Game 2 Loss

Jose Lobaton
October 9, 2016

You didn’t think the Dodgers would just waltz out of Washington with two wins and ride home on an airplane of pixie dust did you? It’s just not that easy; although Rich Hill and the Dodger offense certainly made it easier for Washington then it had to be. The Dodgers blew an early 2-0 lead as Rich Hill was unable to get past the fifth inning (sound familiar?) allowing four…

NLDS Game 2 Postponed, Rescheduled For Sunday at 10 AM PST

October 8, 2016

The Dodgers/Nationals NLDS game 2 has been postponed because of rain. The game will be played tomorrow at 10 AM PST. According to the weather service the rain was not going to let up anyways, so maybe this is a good thing. The Dodgers probably like this because they have stated that they don’t want Rich Hill pitching in the rain or wet conditions because of his blister problems. Now…

Is Rich Hill Ready For The Nats Reign?

October 8, 2016

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw stuck to the theme of the season and gritted out an edge of your seat 4-3 victory in Game 1 of the NLDS against the Washington Nationals.  Take stats out of the equation in this series and just win should be the motto.
