Tip your cap and bounce back tomorrow.

 

Only one game. Always nice to bounce back with the best pitcher in baseball on the mound.

I believe the Dodgers HAVE to win game 2. I really do.

Mattingly deserves a lot of blame for the loss. Taking out Gonzalez in a tie game allowed the Cardinals to walk Hanley TWICE.  If Gonzalez is in there, they are forced to pitch to Hanley.

Are you saying it's a must-win in the playoffs?


Who would have thought?

We left so many runners on base. Its pissing me off. I have zero complaints about our pitching staff, offense let us down again. Ugh

Yup. If we don't get game 2, with the rest of our starting rotation that follows I am then not so confident.

 

We did get a moral victory tonight though guys. Our bullpen was great for the most part. Good to see them build their confidence like that in extreme pressure situations.

Every game in the playoffs is a "must-win".

This is what playoff baseball is.

 

Every move is magnified in the playoffs.  As my friend pointed out on Twitter, both losses have come at the hands of a Mattingly decision.  First Heyward, not Gonzalez.

 

There is a reason why he hasn't been extended

It wasn't all on mattingly though. Greinke pitched a solid game but did not come through in the third inning. When there are 2 outs and the pitcher up you cannot give up a hit and then walk a guy and then face Beltran. Those are the little moments with less pressure and the moments you have to come through. And our offense was atrocious. 11 men left on base SMH. Time to bounce back tmrw. Bring Wahca on. We need to remind him he's just a rookie and I think our guys are thinking the same thing right now.

It's not all on Mattingly but that move was crucial in the loss.

Hitting with RISP is key. I mentioned that a few pages back. Tonight was terrible and we wasted a great performance from Greinke.

Confident with Kershaw on the mound. Let's take it back 1-1 to LA

Looks like Ethier is out of the lineup today. Not surprised. Playing extra innings like that has to take a toll on your body especially first full game back from injury

And now Hanley could be scratched. Still no official decision yet

Ugh. Talk about things going from bad to worse.

Worried about Hanley.  He wasn't himself after getting hit.

No Hanley, no Ethier on the road....

 

Really needed to win that game last night. Will Hanley miss more than 1 game or is it not known?

Could miss more time. Bruised ribs are terrible in baseball, can't swing normally. We'll find out more tomorrow evening when they are back in LA
