Yankee Stadium felt Zeus’ wrath today in a rainy rubber match that ended up going the Dodgers way, 2-0. A Seager steal and a Kringle double delivered dual blows to the bum Bronx Bombers to take the series.
After lasting three innings in his last start in Miami, Clayton Kershaw’s clinic commenced of five scoreless innings as Dayton took over in the top of the sixth.
The Dodgers are now five games above the Giants in the NL West.
Los Dogs head to the Valley of the Sun to shake it up with the Snakes tomorrow. The big series against the Giants starts on Monday.
Vin Scully will call his final six games at Dodger Stadium next week (he’s already said “nyet” to the postseason.) We’ll serve up a scrumptious SuperScully series dedicated to the greatest baseball announcer who ever lived, keep your peepers peeled for that palaver, post-snakes!
Remember those clowns that were haunting the woods of South Carolina a couple of weeks ago? Even they had a problem with Dave Roberts’ move to yank poor Rich Hill from a potentially perfect performance. Hill will take another shot at being yanked from a career moment tomorrow night at 6:10. Archie Bradley will start for Los Snakes.
Will Hill get ill and watch Kill Bill? Will Bradley bring brash balls at blinkered bashers? Will rascalsoftheravine be mean to the ghost of Steve McQueen? It remains to be seen! Until next time, mirth-seekers!
