Cardinals have shutdown Dodger offense in the last three games"

Postby liny195 » Tue May 28, 2019 3:15 am

The Dodgers lost 7-2to Jack Flaherty and the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night without much of a protest.Not one Dodger got as far as second base in the entire game.Two solo home runs from Joc Pederson and Max Muncy was the Dodger offense that had been shutout for 18 straight innings from the 6th inning on Monday to the 6th inning tonight.Jack Flaherty’s Game Score of 70 was the highest this season against the Dodgers.In fact he became the first opposing starting pitcher to record a Game Score higher than 56 against the Dodgers.Kenta Maeda allowed the first Cardinal run when Marcell Ozuna stole third after he had doubled in the second inning.He would score on a Yadier Molina ground out.The Cardinals added a run when Dexter Fowler got a two-out single to score Paul DeJong.The Dodgers had halved the lead to a run but in the bottom of the sixth Randy Jones Jersey , Maeda gave up a run-scoring triple to DeJong and then Molina continued his assault on Dodger pitching by hitting a two-run homer to make it 5-1.Ozuna would close the scoring with a ringing line drive two-run homer off the foul pole in the eighth inning.And while the lack of offense has hampered the Dodgers in this series, you cannot overlook the fact that in 11 of their 13 games, opponents have scored four or more runs against the Dodgers.Andrew Friedman and Dave Roberts made a point of saying the Dodgers were going to try and be more consistent offensively this season.Sure this is just three games but it will be interesting to see if the team can make adjustments in the series finale.Player of the game:Jack Flaherty pitched six great innings against the Dodgers, he gave up one run, three hits and struck out eight.Look aheadThe Dodgers will be playing their getaway game and will try to salvage one game and come back to Los Angeles with a winning road trip.Walker Buehler (1-0 6.75 ERA) will start against Michael Wacha (0-0 1.54 ERA).First pitch will be at 10:15 a.m. PDT and it will be televised on Sportsnet LA and MLB Network (out-of-local-markets only) with radio coverage on KLAC 570 AM and KTNQ 1020 (Spanish) KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — While the Kansas City Royals overcame the weather, Toronto Blue Jays starter Sam Gaviglio was unable to overcome a fourth-inning balk.Lucas Duda homered, Rosell Herrera had three hits and the Royals beat the Blue Jays 6-2 after a long rain delay Thursday night to split their four-game series.Royals relievers Brian Flynn, Kevin McCarthy, Brandon Maurer and Wily Peralta shut down Toronto on three hits over the final five innings. Flynn (3-3) picked up the win with a scoreless inning.“Difficult circumstances , really,” Kansas City manager Ned Yost said. “Long wait, waiting out the rain. We weren’t sure we were going to play. It just kept building up, building up and then it started dying down. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen.“The bullpen did a good job of holding the fort and a good job by our hitters with four two-out hits to give us the lead.”Kansas City took the lead with a three-run fourth highlighted by Jorge Bonifacio’s RBI triple.Gaviglio (2-6) failed to make it through five innings for the eighth time in his past 13 starts. He allowed five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.The right-hander came unraveled after a balk call and a delay of more than five minutes in the fourth. He attempted a pickoff throw, but the ball slipped out of his hand. After the umpires huddled, Herrera was awarded second base. There was also a replay review to confirm the balk, which took 4 minutes, 1 second.Following the long delay, Gaviglio yielded three straight run-producing hits.“I thought it was a balk, from my point of view Wil Myers Jersey ,” Gaviglio said.He said the delay did not cause him problems.“I just kind of got a little up in the zone, didn’t make very good pitches,” Gaviglio said.Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said Gaviglio is unable to get away with elevated pitches.“He’s been getting hit around a little bit lately, primarily because he gets a lot of pitches up in the zone,” Gibbons said. “That’s not his style. He can’t do that. “Danny Jansen’s sacrifice fly in the second scored Teoscar Hernandez with the first Toronto run.Kendrys Morales singled home Justin Smoak in the fourth with the final Blue Jays run.Glenn Sparkman, who was making his first big league start, was removed after four innings and 75 pitches. He gave up two runs and four hits.Rain delayed the start for 2 hours, 14 minutes — the third straight day that bad weather held up the first pitch.“It was a little different,” Sparkman said. “I definitely wasn’t ready for it. I got a cup of coffee, got warmed back up and went out there.”MATIAS’ SEASON OVEROF Seuly Matias Rickey Henderson Jersey , who leads the minor leagues with 31 homers for short-season Class A Burlington, went on the disabled list with a cut thumb. “It was an accident with the bus baggage door, just a freak accident, putting his bag in the bus on the way to Hagerstown,” Royals director of operations Alec Zumwalt said. “He sliced his thumb. It’s to the point where we’re just going to stop him for the season and get him ready for the instructional league. He’s not a guy we’re going to rush back, and make sure he’s at 100 percent.” Matias went 2 for 3 with a home run in the All-Star Futures Game last month in Washington.NOT CLUTCHRoyals 3B Hunter Dozier is 4 for 46 (.087) with runners in scoring position. He has come to bat with 65 men in scoring position and has six RBIs with only one extra-base hit. “It’s not really conducive to scoring runs, but that’s not going to stop me from playing him and letting him work through that,” Yost said.ROSTER MOVEThe Royals sent minor league LHP Kelvin Gonzalez to the Texas Rangers for a $250,000 international bonus allocation. Gonzalez, 20 , was 0-2 with a 4.19 ERA and one save with Burlington.TRAINER’S ROOMBlue Jays: 3B Josh Donaldson (left calf tightness) is running the bases at the Dunedin, Florida, complex with no issues. … INF-OF Brandon Drury (broken left hand) will receive follow-up imaging Friday in New York to assess his healing.Royals: RHP Ian Kennedy (strained left oblique) threw a 25-pitch simulated game. He is scheduled to throw a two-inning simulated game Monday at the Royals’ complex in Surprise, Arizona. … LHP Danny Duffy (shoulder impingement) will begin throwing off a flat surface Friday for the first time since going on the disabled list Sunday. … OF Brian Goodwin (left groin strain) went 0 for 3 with two walks in his first rehab game with Triple-A Omaha.UP NEXTBlue Jays: RHP Marcus Stroman (4-8, 5.03 ERA) starts Friday in the series opener at Yankee Stadium.Royals: RHP Jakob Junis (6-11, 4.82) is scheduled to pitch Friday against the White Sox in Chicago to open a seven-game trip.
