Turner, Dodgers steamroll Mets 8-0 for season sweep

Turner, Dodgers steamroll Mets 8-0 for season sweep

A play that made Matz crumble as the evening got worse. The last team to do that?

For all their "team-first" preaching - and ample evidence that they have practiced what they preach this season - it ironically could be chasing individual goals that helps the Dodgers keep their edge down the stretch, according to Justin Turner.

What's scary for Dodgers opponents is that Seager has also been crushing baseballs for about two months now as he's pulling the ball more - and thus tapping into his power more often.

Dodgers fans might be starting to line up for the championship parade. "Their bullpen has been outstanding". In a span of four batters, they tied the game 3-3 thanks to a solo homer by Chris Taylor (his third consecutive game with a dinger) and a two-run shot by rookie sensation Cody Bellinger (his 31st of the season).

That summarizes how things have been going for the Dodgers lately. His ERA is now a whopping 5.77 for the season.

If the Dodgers keep this up, they might give Clayton Kershaw a complex. "He did one helluva job", said Herzog. "It's show up and figure out how to win a ballgame that day". You've just gotta focus on the day to day. It is worth noting that neither of those clubs won the World Series either. He wrapped the sixth inning with just five pitches and closed out the seventh inning with two grounders and a fly out. "I guess that might be it".

Each victory only seems to invite more historical implications. There nearly was an eighth as Herzog's son, David, had his auto sucked into an open manhole but made it out alive.

The Arizona Diamondbacks will look to bounce back after dropping back-to-back games to close out their series against the Giants, including a 6-3 loss in the series finale on Sunday.

"It's a good question", Matz said. "This competition is very for good for us because every single one of us is working hard to stay in the rotation". "Like that couldn't have waited", he said, just moments before Turner blasted a home run. "Figure that one out".

In his 11th start of an injury-plagued season, Matz allowed three runs in the first inning.

As we find ourselves set to embark on a new week in professional baseball, the Dodgers find themselves standing head and shoulders above the rest of the sport in terms of both wins and profitability. Otherwise, there are very few divisional pennant races and he said he was exhausted of hearing about the "knockout game", meaning the one-game playoff in each league to open the postseason. That puts the thundering Dodgers at 46 games above.500 for the first time since they were 98-51 on September 15, 1962.

There's a stat called Win Probability Added - basically it calculates how much a player improves his team's chances of winning after each at-bat. They're certainly going to run away with the division barring any monumental collapse. The way it stands now, the "knockout" victor is even (in home games) after four games.

Hill wasn't on the 2013 Dodgers, but few players in the clubhouse were. With 55 games left, all that's left is to determine what more this team can do.

"It used to be that you would see about 265 pitches for a nine-inning game", Herzog said. I check the number of pitches. Sometimes there's a lot of pressure so you have to focus even more. "But he's got to pitch".

"Young pitchers. all they care about is what the radar gun says". #Dodgers lead, 2-0!

"You can do something about this in the minor leagues", he said. "Then they can accomplish that before they even get to the big leagues".
