The Dodgers still have five games remaining with the Giants.  The game last night was playoff baseball.  Tonight’s match-up will try to live up to that excitement with Rich Hill 12-4 with a 2.06 ERA going against Johnny Cueto 16-5 2.86 ERA.  Game time 710pm SNLA ESPN2.

Rich Hill is coming off a tough start against the Diamondbacks where he went 5.1 IP giving up four hits and four runs.  He also walked one and struck out eight.  It was his first loss with the Dodgers.  Hill is 3-1 with a 2.70 ERA in six career starts against the Giants, limiting them to a .219 batting average.  Hill pitched against the Giants on August 24th and went six innings giving up only five hits.  Hunter Pence had two hits that day.

How have the Dodgers fared against Cueto you ask?

Cueto last pitched against the Dodgers on August 24th going six innings giving up one run on four hits.  In his career vs. the Dodgers.  In twenty eight innings against the Dodgers he has given up 20 hits and 10 runs.  Adrian Gonzalez, Chase Utley, and Justin Turner have hit him well in their careers.  The Dodger added pitcher Alex Wood to the roster and DFA’d Bud Norris.  Alex wood will help bolster the bullpen.

The Dodgers gave the Giants a devastating loss last night.  Rich Hill can come out tonight and add to the Giants miseries.  The whole goal is to make the final three in San Francisco not mean anything other then knocking the Giants out of the wild card.  The Dodgers are only three games behind the Washington Nationals for home field in the NLDS.  The Dodgers have played so much better at home.  That could be vital in reaching the NLCS.

Hi I’m James Moya. I am an avid Dodgers fan. I graduated Cal State Fullerton with a Bachelors in Communications. I used to freelance at the San Bernardino Sun. I’m excited about this opportunity to write for LA Dodger Report to gain experience. I’m a straight shooter on my opinions and I hope to get some good conversations going. My dream has always been to report on the Dodgers because Baseball is the National Past-time. I hope you enjoy the ride with me.

  1. “Dolly” may have dominated the 2014 post season, but he’s our bitch. He sure acted like one last night. Maybe all that rage stems from growing up in the country with a chic’s name – Madison.

  2. Reposting this from last thread because it’s a good thing and someone might want to take a crack at it–Dodgers history.

    Important Brooklyn Dodgers Memorabilia at auction: Marble Ebbets Field Plaque from the stadium, 1913. Thought some of you old guys (like me) might like to know about this.

    It’s at JMW auction in Kingston, NY. Don’t be afraid of the $7,500 open–things often go for way less than opening bid here. Looks like a great piece to me…buy it for yourself…buy if for Brooklyn…or maybe Mark should buy it for Badger as a peace offering (yeah, right). Or maybe it’s a chance for FAZ develop some real Dodgers bonafides and buy it for the Clubhouse or the Dugout. Anyway, hope someone with real team creds buys it–and enjoys it!
