Because of the first problem and in spite of the second, when the Giants announced that they would be inexplicably resuming their game against the Dodgers-delayed by thunderstorms for nearly three hours, after a single pitch had been thrown-at 10:50 p.m. PDT, I had to go.
"We needed it", manager Dave Roberts said.
Since, they've been scoring half that, plating 2.6 runs per game with 13 home runs in and 158 strikeouts (9.3 per contest). They've now lost 11 straight games, the longest such streak in franchise history since moving to L.A. "You just have to keep working your way through it. It's going to come back to us". Even though they have only won one game in September, they still have an expected wins total of 103.6 and a 100% chance to win the division according to Fangraphs.

That 2011 Red Sox team was shrouded in controversy, much of it surrounding Francona. In three career starts against them, he is 0-2 with an 8.80 ERA.

"This needs to happen", Kershaw said. Los Angeles is -145 on the -1.5 run line, while San Francisco is +125 on the +1.5 RL.

The left-hander struck out pinch-hitter Tim Federowicz to end the sixth with the bases loaded after Orlando Calixte's sacrifice fly.
The Giants are opening on the road for the 27th time in the past 34 years, which they request so they can end at home.
The Dodgers are still the owners of the best record in all of baseball. But he's an absolute bully against the Giants. Offensively, Buster Posey leads the Giants with 144 hits and 61 RBI while Joe Panik and Denard Span have combined for 255 hits and 90 RBI. And yet rather than embrace the truth and include the Dodger faithful in the current reality of the situation, with the exceptions mentioned above, we are hearing false reassurances, excuses and sometimes sheer nonsense from the organization's representatives.

Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: Nolan Arenado hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning and drove in four runs in Colorado's 5-4 victory over Arizona. Pedro Baez suffered the loss in relief.
