I mean when a club is trying to gift you a win, you take it. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. The Dodgers just couldn’t get out of their own way on Saturday.
The Dbacks did their best to try and give away Saturday night’s game to the Dodgers. The Dodgers just weren’t having that and decided not to accept the gift from one of the worst teams in baseball. So they hit, ran, and tootblaned themselves out of a win. You can find blame in the bullpen, but keep in mind Kenley Jansen has blown all of 4 games the entire season and the Dodger bullpen has the best ERA in MLB.
It wasn’t just the terrible hitting with runners in scoring position and leaving like 100 runners on base, but the costly base running blunders from Corey Seager and Scott Van Slyke that really hurt. Those tootblans screwed them good. I’ve said before many times that good base running is paramount to a winning club. The Dodger’s base running has been pretty horrendous for the last couple of years now. Perhaps the coaches should stop being bumps on the log and actually teach some proper base running skills? I know baseball is hard but come on.
Dodgers Lineup @ Arizona
Van Slyke 1B
Game Time – 1:10 PM TV- SNLA
The Dodgers will go for the series win this afternoon as Kenta Maeda will take on left hander Robbie Ray in the rubber game. Since Ray is a left hander the Dodgers will roll out the all righty lineup again. That means no Adrian Gonzalez at first base, Scott Van Slyke takes over for the day there. Newest Dodger Zach Walters is in right field with Yasiel Puig sliding over to center field. Chris Taylor is at second base with the red hot Howie Kendrick in left field.

Maeda vs. Dbacks
Perhaps the Dodgers should work on better lineup creation too and stop using the all-righty lineups against left handers. Kike Hernandez is still out so at least Dave Roberts can’t put a .190 hitter at the lead-off spot, but I’m still sick of seeing this every time we face a southpaw. Lineup creation is actually a lot more important than you think. I’m still annoyed about last night’s game if you can’t tell.
Enjoy the game and Go Blue!
