Colorado Rockies: series preview with the Los Angeles Dodgers

Colorado Rockies: series preview with the Los Angeles Dodgers”

The Dodgers' division lead fell to 10 games over idle second-place Arizona.

Kershaw slammed his glove into the dugout wall and yelled before sitting down with his head bowed. There is no escaping the lefty with a 16-2 record and a baseball-best 1.95 ERA before Thursday. "I felt less nervous than I anticipated".

After Kershaw left the game, the Rockies only piled on from there, scoring three runs in the top of the seventh on a solo home run by Carlos Gonzalez and a pair of bases loaded walks by relief pitcher Josh Ravin. Martinez hit four home runs against the Dodgers in the Monday game alone, becoming the 18th player to accomplish the feat. It was the first time in his career Kershaw surrendered hits to the first four batters of a game.

Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw (16-3, 2.15 ERA) had another rocky outing, lasting just 3.2 innings and surrendering four runs on six hits and three walks.

"We don't think that we're a bad team", Kershaw said. He gave up a single to Gonzalez, his first batter, but faced the minimum six batters over two scoreless innings thanks to a double play.

"We're battling, grinding and sticking together, and those are things that make you win those close games and win 13 straight", Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said after the series, according to Fox Sports.

Struggling Dodgers right-hander Pedro Baez struck out the side in his only inning, responding well after he was booed by a sold-out crowd when he entered the game. He struck out three.

Cincinnati Reds 2 New York Mets 7: The Mets pick up a second straight win (not happened too often this season), getting a couple of home runs from the talented Brandon Nimmo.

· Yasiel Puig drove in the lone run for the Dodgers with an RBI double in the fourth inning and finished the night going 1-for-3. Their dry spell has coincided with the absence of star shortstop Corey Seager, who returns to the lineup Friday after dealing with elbow inflammation.

"That's a part of it", Roberts said, "but those other seven guys still have to put forth good at-bats and find a way to get hits". Kershaw wore down Gray with a 12-pitch at-bat that ended in his meritorious groundout.

The former Vandy right-hander hit 100 miles per hour during his outing, in which he struck out two batters, while allowing a hit. Cody Bellinger reached on a rare fielding error from DJ LeMahieu and Joc Pederson drew a two-out walk before Austin Barnes could come through with a jam-shot single to right, putting the Dodgers ahead 4-1.

A much brighter beacon: Pitcher Walker Buehler, who was almost ideal in his major league debut.

Buehler got the NL batting average leader, Charlie Blackmon, to watch a sweeping curveball for a called third strike to begin the ninth inning. Buehler's fastball climbed as high as 100 miles per hour on the in-house radar gun. Dodgers LHP Scott Kazmir will make a three-inning appearance for Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday, but is not being considered for the major league playoff roster.

The Dodgers bullpen in September (in which they are ) have an ERA of 7.82.
