Dodgers continue their shaky starts as Kershaw (just ONE K this time) was unable to hold the Cards on Thursday. He was pulled after just 4.1 innings of work. However, he gave up 5 runs (4 earned) off of 8 hits, walking 3 (season-high) and striking out one lowly birdy. Offense (minus Ethier who belted his 15th homer & secured his name as All-Star after the game) was also unable to make their mark. Cardinals had RBIs from 6 of the players in their line-up. Dodgers just couldn’t get it together. Carpenter is now a lifetime 6-0 against the Dodgers.
Was anyone else surprised to see Sherrill on the mound last night? Hadn’t he been waivered?! I felt lost and confused. Two feelings not too happy feeling.
Today, Billingsley is sent to the mound against Jaime Garcia. Hoping the Dodgers finally show up to play today, it’ll take pitching and defense to win this ball game against the surging Cardinals. Unfortunately, that is all I have for today. I will be scoring tonight’s game. Hoping to make it a good one! Remember to get your tickets to Loney’s Bobblehead night! See ya there 😉 & Arriba Los Doyers!
Until next time,
