The Dodgers B-Team Takes on Patrick Corbin and The Snakes on Jackie Robinson Night, Kenta Maeda Counters

The Dodgers are unveiling the new Jackie Robinson statue in the reserved level of Dodger Stadium tonight as the boys in blue take on the snakes in game two. Kershaw and the Dodgers put on a Kershaw-esque smack down on the snakes as they defeated the dbacks and turncoat Zack Greinke 7-1 in the home stand opener on Friday night. Tonight they’ll face another left hander as Patrick Corbin will battle Kenta Maeda on Jackie Robinson night.

Maeda is looking for his second win of the season, but he’s had his struggles so far. He’s failed to make it past the fifth inning and has given up seven earned runs on 11 hits through his first ten innings. That gives him an ERA of 6.30 for 2017.

He’s faced the snakes 6 times in his career and has pitched well. Maeda is 3-1 with a 2.97 ERA against the Dbacks in 6 career starts. He’s struck out 34 and walked only 7 Snakes over 89 plate appearances. The Snakes are hitting just .195 against Maeda. However Jake Lamb is hitting .467 (7 for 15) with a home run and 4 runs batted in so watch out for him.

The B-team returns because it’s a left hander. We’ll be seeing this nonsense all season long. Because you know whenever a left hander starts utility players have to be in the lineup. Trayce Thompson takes over center field and bats sixth tonight. Kike is in left field batting seventh and Austin Barnes will be behind the plate. So three utility players will be starting tonight as Joc Pederson, Yasmani Grandal, and Andrew Toles all sit on the bench. Don’t expect the Dodgers to score many runs tonight if any.

Go B-team! And go Blue!

  1. Alex Wood has looked awesome this year. I now look forward to him coming into the game. He and Strip will be huge for us

  2. Question, how can it be the B team when 5 of the starters were regulars? Just asking……Maeda looked terrible except for the 1st and 3rd innings.
