Jaime Garcia ups his trade value with grand slam off Alex Wood

Jaime Garcia ups his trade value with grand slam off Alex Wood”

While the Twins are still in play, they are back to square one when it comes to landing the veteran lefty.

The Minnesota Twins are really close in a deal to trade for Atlanta Braves' left-hand pitcher Jaime Garcia, according to ESPN. The Dodgers even went to the trouble of making out a new lineup, to replace the one prepared for Garcia. The Twins could use him, but parting with anything resembling a notable prospect is a bad idea. Garcia trudged to the mound at Dodger Stadium. Garcia hit a grand-slam and accounted for 6 of the Braves 12 runs scored. Maybe in a parallel universe Garcia is pitching for the Minnesota Twins, Alex Wood is still undefeated, and the Dodgers are back to looking like the best team in baseball. "So overall a good night".

Despite the home run by Taylor, the Dodgers super utility star wasn't finished as he added a two-run triple in the bottom of the eighth to break the game open.

Tony Cloninger was the last Braves pitcher to hit a grand slam. In his previous 10 starts, he had given up six runs in 62 innings. This is why I believe that Atlanta will continue to turn over every stone in their attempt to find a controllable starting pitcher.

The Dodgers lost tonight for the first time in almost three weeks, stopping their win streak at 11 and dropping them to 31-5 in their past 36 games. They picked up Colon after he was released by the Braves.

Kurt Suzuki hit a two-run homer for the Braves, who jumped out to a 6-1 lead after four innings against McCarthy. The former Dodger robbed Grandal of an extra-base hit with a back-handed, head-first diving catch of a ball slicing away from him just inside the left field line.

Utley made it 2-0 by leading off the third with his sixth home run. Teheran walked four and surrendered five hits, including a two-run single to Ben Zobrist in the top of the fifth inning. Garcia capped the scoring with a grand slam - on an 0-2 pitch, no less - to give the Braves a 9-0 lead.

Garcia, who has seen his nine-inning strikeout rate dip to 6.88, rebounded to allow one earned run in seven innings on Sunday in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
