  1. Nothing like a #2 hitter with a .249 OBP. I mean, literally nothing like it, in the rest of the league.

    1. Did you know that we have the 2nd highest team batting average, the 3rd highest team OBP, and 3rd highest team OPS, in the American League.

      1. Yeah Jon L, just a bad coupla games, and one of them was against Kershaw. I’m not too worried about it.

  2. As of today, Raburn has played in 62 games and has 75 K’s in 211 ABs – that’s more than 1 (K) for every 3 ABs… which i believe surpasses the standard set by Mr Inge.

  3. Loney didn’t even come close to touching home there; great block by VMart. I’m glad Loney didn’t choose the more ‘direct’ route to home.

  4. I’m not watching the game, but if the pitch location is relatively accurate on ESPN gamecast, Porcello is up in the zone far too often. When he’s pitching like he has the past few outings, the scouting report on him should be simple; layoff the sinker and low balls, and look for the fastball or non-sinking sinkers about belt high.

  5. despite the outcome (Loney rbi single), i’ve got to give credit to JL for lifting Porcello – Loney was batting .177 vs lefties and Porcello didn’t seem to be fooling many of the Dodger hitters.

    1. Or they read this blog…I posted it a few days ago, though in fairness, I pulled it from a tweet.

  6. I like how Raburn argues with the ump after every strikeout. Like a guy who strikes out 40% of his ABs is going to get the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully umps are going to start tossing him.

  7. Though I’m slightly reassured by the fact that just about everyone in the stadium has already left.

  8. I thought that ball was going to travel a lot farther than that when it came off the bat. Phew.

  9. Almost a four-hour game. Enjoyed listenting to Vin Scully calling every minute of it. He is an artist.
