The game also was tied 5-5 in the fifth - Yasiel Puig hit a 441-foot home run for the Dodgers - and 6-6 in the sixth, after an RBI double by Justin Turner.
The Jays, sure, are auditioning some kids, and Teoscar Hernandez had a day on Sunday, but they played themselves out of the race in April and never really got in it. The ups were so small compared to the downs they were barely worth mentioning. In the eighth, Arenado would do it with his bat, knocking a three-run home run off Jake Barrett (1-1, 5.14) to give Colorado a 5-2 lead.
Nothing has changed in Toronto.
Mark Trumbo homered for the Orioles, who have lost five in a row, while the Blue Jays have won three straight.
If there is good news for the Dodgers, though, it's Arizona cooling off a little bit-losing three of their last four.
Looking at some of the numbers for this team, you can see why this team has spiraled the way it has.
Over the same stretch, the Dodgers haven't been much better on the mound, either.
Granderson has had a less than ideal start to his Dodger career and will most likely go in free agency as well.
NOTES: During the 2-hour, 52-minute delay, the Dodgers reportedly balked at scheduling a makeup game on Thursday, noting it would eliminate the only off day on their schedule between Aug. 28 and Sept. 28.
Those Red Sox were 7-20 in September.
But enough about the Dodgers' slouch to the playoffs.
"Not too bad today".
Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin reported Monday that all Gators student-athletes were safe and accounted for as Gainesville was left with fallen trees and flooding from the storm. Maeda allowed four hits, including a two-run homer to Denard Span in the first inning and a solo shot to Jarrett Parker in the second.
But Darvish has been ordinary and sometimes lousy, lacking command.
Yet on a similar note, just because the Nats have clinched the NL East doesn't mean they're going to start taking it easy. "I try to thrive on so-called adversity". Hill escaped the bases-loaded jam by retiring the next three batters, striking out two. First, they need to win a dang baseball game.
If you're never going to bunt because your players can't bunt and because your front office won't allow you to bunt because of sabermetrics, then please just say it. Dave Roberts seems so afraid to say anything which might conceivably hurt a player's feelings, as if they are all so thin-skinned. Even Clayton Kershaw could not escape the sinkhole, as the Rockies managed four runs on six hits in just 3.2 innings in Kershaw's last start.
CLEVELAND As they climb toward baseball history with every win, the streaking Cleveland Indians are chasing a hallowed, 101-year-old record that includes an asterisk. If there is any team the Dodgers would want to play right now, it would be the Giants, who are 3-7 in their last 10. She's been at the stadium for more than eight hours already. The Giants are a +210 underdog and the over-under is 6.5. Take Los Angeles on the run line. Pedro Baez suffered the loss in relief. Writing a truly unforgettable Hollywood script. A hardy group of loyal fans stayed until the final out.
