10 Thoughts on the Dodgers v. SF Giants Game:

After playing until 2:15am, the Dodgers and Giants were back at it tonight. The big question was whether the Dodgers’ losing streak of 11 games was going to end tonight.

  1. The streak has ended. Thank God!!!
  2. There was a discrepancy in pitch counts between Clayton Kershaw and Johnny Cueto. After two innings, Kershaw had thrown twenty pitches and Cueto had thrown 45 pitches. Cueto only lasted three and two thirds innings.
  3. Kelby Tomlinson was 0 for 14 against Kershaw until he hit a homerun tonight that gave the Giants a 1-0 lead.
  4. Chase Utley and Kershaw sparked the Dodgers in the fourth inning with an Utley homerun and a Kershaw double. Their two hits sparked a four run fourth inning for the Dodgers.
  5. The Giants made some serious defensive errors which lead to Dodgers runs. There was a misjudged fly ball in right field and Kershaw’s double was misplayed by the left fielder.
  6. Curtis Granderson and Yasmani Grandal are slumping real hard. They combined for 0 hits and left seven runners on base.
  7. Cory Seager stunk it up as well with 0 hits and three strikeouts.
  8. Puig is finally playing like the man we knew he would be in 2013. He has finally found his swing.
  9. Chris Taylor threw out another runner at the plate. He leads the team in outfield assists.
  10. Kenley Jansen pulled off another four out save. He had the deal with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the ninth. He dealt with it in Jansen-like fashion by striking out the final two batters.
