Nationals quickly closing in the top seed in the National League

13 Setiembre 2017

After the game was delayed twice for a total of 3 hours, 32 minutes because of rain, the Giants blew a 4-0 lead before overcoming a 5-4 deficit by scoring four of the game's final five runs in a contest that ended at 2:10 a.m. PDT. OF Andre Ethier, who returned Sept. 1 after sitting out all season with a herniated disk in his back, is scheduled to start Friday against the Nationals. The Dodger announcers have been putting all kinds of spin on the tailspin with clichés like "every team goes through it" or worse.

In a season that's provided the Giants with nothing but misery, perhaps spoiling their bitter rival's season would offer a bit of comfort. The Dodgers' 1961 swoon began in mid-August and turned a 2.5-game lead in the NL standings into a 3.5-game deficit.

"This is the record that I always wanted to see challenged", he said. Against the Rockies, he is 2-1 with a 3.62 ERA in four starts this season.

The NL West-leading Dodgers are trying to end a 10-game losing streak, tied for the franchise's worst since moving to Los Angeles.

This isn't something that either team is used to. "It's just part of the game". Kershaw has gone 20-9 with a 1.62 ERA in the previous meetings, striking out 295 in 283 1/3 innings.

Kershaw had a limit of 100 pitches in his third start since returning from a lower back strain - and he was efficient, his night done instead after 91.

Colorado's fifth straight victory matched the club's longest road winning streak since June 3-10.

The Rockies won the opener 7-5 against the Brewers, but Gray lasted only four innings and was tagged for five runs.

Cueto spotted a slider inside for one strike. The undisputed best team in baseball for the majority of 2017 has played the poorest baseball of any team in the bigs over the past two weeks. "So we shouldn't have expected this one to be easy".

And remember, Kershaw's reign has stretched across all three of the Giants' World Series seasons. "He's struggled. You want to find a way to get him untracked", Roberts said, pointing to some recent "hard contact foul" balls as a sign that Granderson is "getting close". Los Angeles came away with a 1-0 win in San Diego that night. "And it's only going to get better". He tried to backhand the ball on a routine grounder and it missed his glove, putting the potential tying and go-ahead runs on first and third with two outs. A woman sitting alone says, "it's 2 o'clock in the morning and we're at a fucking baseball game".

The Dodgers are still the owners of the best record in all of baseball.

"Pitch count caught with him there, but most of that was lack of defense and mistakes we made."
This late season wobble could signify that an early exit from the playoffs could happen yet again. Giants left-hander Matt Moore (5-13, 5.31 ERA) has run up a 5.36 ERA in eight career starts against the Dodgers, going 3-3 in the process. And players like Cody Bellinger and Logan Forsythe have seen slight drops in batting average over the past 15 games. However, despite the immense struggles of late, it must be noted that the Dodgers (92-57) still hold a four-game lead on the Washington Nationals (88-55) for home-field advantage.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal. Tomlinson took Kershaw deep to left in the third, picking up his first homer in 280 at-bats.
