MLB Network's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air tonight, the opener of a three game series between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
00:00:34
Looking forward to this match up, and it's next on MLB network Walker Buehler beyond the Mount for the series opener.
00:00:49
What do we need to know here, Danny? How good is this guy been up to this point in a day in age where guys and teams air scoring lots of runs toe have an e.
00:00:59
R A sub to that saying something.
00:01:01
Hopefully, we're gonna see more of the same from this guy.
00:01:04
One of the top pictures at all.
00:01:06
The league at the plate, one rigorous, and we are setting for baseball here this evening.
00:01:12
The center fielder first pitch of the at bat on its way underway now on a Friday night, is the first pitch of our Siri's misses for ball one dandy row.
00:01:24
You check out this Dodger team.
00:01:26
Is they interplay here tonight? They've had it going the last 10 games.
00:01:29
They're seven and three over that stretch, including a win last time out.
00:01:33
Yeah, Matty, I think the key so winning today's game let's focused on the offense.
00:01:38
They have toe hunt the fast bill.
00:01:40
They cannot miss it.
00:01:42
You can't allow yourself to get deep in the count and have to deal with off speed stuff exploding out of the zone.
00:01:48
You get 102031 what I like to refer to his count.
00:01:52
Leverage.
00:01:53
You have to find a way.
00:01:55
Traffic with Rhoda first is in time for the first out.
00:02:02
Really? So coming to the plate, Eric Hosmer has.
00:02:08
He's been in a pretty good stretch over the last 10 or so ballgames ready to deliver.
00:02:23
Here's the first pitch fastball here is we'll take a look a full 11 And and there are the umpires assigned to this one.
00:02:33
Calling balls and strikes is Mr Mike Film or a zero Mike Film or one of the most consistent umpires throughout the league.
00:02:41
Both pictures and position players love this.
00:02:43
Yeah, I think one of the best in the business.
00:02:45
How I judge a good teammate is every day opens that door.
00:02:48
Is he consistent? Can I count on him? Mike Fillmore's the exact same way behind the dish and try to hold back swing, but will do.
00:02:55
So unsuccessfully is that's ruled a strike lifetime versus this picture.
00:03:00
He's really struggled one for 15.
00:03:03
He's also been a strikeout victim six times slung right over the top of that one is this is a little dribbler out in front of the mouth and there's out number two.
00:03:15
So stepping in Tommy Pham.
00:03:17
First chance for in here in the top of the first with nobody on pitch on the way.
00:03:29
One two out.
00:03:32
Nobody on family than even one in one count.
00:03:40
Now, now, here's the pitch.
00:03:54
Slow little roller to third throw on.
00:03:58
Muncie gets him.
00:03:59
And with that bill in the inning, Padres down in order with Padres.
00:04:05
Nothing.
00:04:06
Dodgers coming up.
00:04:07
You're watching MLB Network.
00:04:17
Joey Casey is on the mound for the Padres in this one, Dan, Any thoughts? Hey, every team needs a picture like this one.
00:04:25
Here is numbers aren't gonna blow you away.
00:04:27
Career e r.
00:04:28
A.
00:04:29
Just under four.
00:04:30
But one thing he does, he takes the ball every five days, throw strikes and gives his team a chance to win every single time he goes out there.
00:04:37
He'll be fun to watch this one here today to go now Looking back lead things off here in the bottom half of the first infield in the over shift here.
00:04:56
Now the pitch and a change up here.
00:05:00
But that's taken low in the dirt for a ball warning.
00:05:18
One to the Dodgers lead off, man two on one.
00:05:29
Now movie a little early, and now it's even at two and two.
00:05:46
Now here's the pitch swing and a miss on the fastball, and that's the first out.
00:05:54
Well, there's nothing better from a picture standpoint that watching that high fastball high piece of cheese swung at and missed.
00:06:01
That pitch looks so inviting.
00:06:03
Teoh hit, But it's awfully tough to put in place into the box.
00:06:10
Justin Turner.
00:06:14
We'll take a look a ball one so far this year against southpaws.
00:06:18
Turner as batting line residing in the to nineties, looking to boost that even higher here and he watches a called strike is this.
00:06:29
One.
00:06:30
Bears in on him one and one on the season.
00:06:32
Turner as a slugging percentage, a little over 4 25 a respectable number.
00:06:41
This is in the air to write in their base, hit first and hustling for second and he'll reach second now with one away.
00:06:52
That was not a good pitch, but I handled it nicely.
00:06:55
Guys pictures got to wonder what he has to do to get a pass.
00:06:58
This guy, that pitch was off the plate, but he showed great reach, gets good extension and drives it for a two bagger.
00:07:09
Settling in now next month.
00:07:10
See, he's been tearing the cover off the ball these past few days.
00:07:14
As you see there.
00:07:28
First pitch, Sean.
00:07:30
Its way.
00:07:31
One.
00:07:41
Now. The 10 to pitch mix here.
00:07:46
If you're in the batter's box, you're looking for something up.
00:07:49
Sinker changeup right here.
00:07:50
Gotta get it up now.
00:07:52
The one in one pic strike two swinging, in my opinion, one of the toughest pitches in the game to square up.
00:07:59
Just a heavy sinker with good downward action.
00:08:04
And he found this one off Turner runner at second with one away again.
00:08:15
Another foul ball.
00:08:25
Good fight to that sinker is he gets him to swing through it for out number two.
00:08:29
He put up a pretty good battle at the plate right there.
00:08:31
They finally get him on a 12 pitch, but you could say that he was laying down with.
00:08:37
He really made a strikeout.
00:08:50
So here's Cody Bellenger as the first pitch, Mrs High and inside for ball, one runner in scoring position at second with two down, that evens it up one on one.
00:09:10
No way Pits, who jumped the gun a bit on that slogan.
00:09:17
He's down one and two, two balls and two strikes now.
00:09:35
Full count of Ballenger.
00:09:36
Three balls, two strikes Now on three.
00:09:39
To as a pitcher, you gotta go with pitch that you feel most comfortable throwing with yanked high and deep down the line in right and it's a foul ball.
00:10:03
He sent the pay off pitch.
00:10:05
He loses him on all four about coming now for Cedar, and he could give his guys in early lead if he could come through here.
00:10:27
He's ready.
00:10:28
Here's the first offering.
00:10:29
Hit hard to the right side, cleanly by husband on two out.
00:10:34
Threat will not come to pass as the inning is over.
00:10:37
Dodgers strand a couple way are still scoreless.
00:10:52
Next is Fernando Taxis.
00:10:53
Junior get a started in the top of the second go, first offering on its way.
00:11:11
One of Mrs Ball, too big, sweeping breaking ball right there.
00:11:20
Good pitch.
00:11:21
But if he wants to get him to swing at it, you'll have to bring it in a little bit closer to the strike zone.
00:11:34
Ball's in his strength.
00:11:36
They teach pictures to keep the ball down.
00:11:38
But if you can locate upstairs like that, it really gives you the ability to mess with the eye level of the matter.
00:11:47
Padres shortstop ahead with three ball, one strike count.
00:11:52
To be honest with you, I'm a little bit more afraid.
00:11:54
That guy on deck and they got it's up right now.
00:11:56
If I'm on the mound, I want this guy up right now.
00:11:58
He's the guy that's got a beat, me three in one pic and that misses for Ball four.
00:12:05
So it's a leadoff walk here to start the second.
00:12:08
He's really struggled with his command in this game, no doubt about it, but make things worse.
00:12:13
He just lost one of the fastest guys in the booth and in steps Manny Machado.
00:12:24
First chance for him here with a man on following the leadoff walk from the belt kicks and deals.
00:12:55
Nobody out. Runner on first.
00:13:04
Can't get around quick enough, and that will move the counter one and one layoff fastball up in the zone here, and that brings it to on one now that was attempting pitch to swing at right there.
00:13:22
A big power guy like this really wants something he can elevate and drive out of.
00:13:27
The ballpark Has a look.
00:13:29
Now the pits fastball there's looked at for Strike two and this Mrs.
00:13:42
So that'll filled accounted three and two.
00:13:46
Gotta believe that runner from first is gonna be in motion, especially in this situation as an offensive player.
00:13:51
Just hit something hard because those defenders are going to be moving now.
00:13:59
The three and to pick is swung on and missed Egat.
00:14:03
That's just a great pitch, both on the call from the catcher and the execution.
00:14:08
If he hits it, there's a good chance it turns into a double play ball.
00:14:11
But it's also a spot that's going to get a lot of whips, too.
00:14:14
That's excellent digit.
00:14:26
Here's Wil Myers, and this is hit hard to the right side, but foul ready with Theo, one Myers playing here in his age 29 season, he was selected in the third round back in the 2009 MLB draft.
00:14:58
Yeah, he has turned himself into a really nice ball player.
00:15:02
I wouldn't put him on a superstar level, but you know what they didn't miss with this pick, either.
00:15:06
You go into high rounds and you carve out a career the way this guy has nice pic throw over to the bag.
00:15:12
Throw is up the line as it gets away.
00:15:27
Look like a cut fastball there, and he got into swing through it for the second out.
00:15:31
Well, his struggles continue.
00:15:33
It's been a rough golden plate handle watching this head that it's clear to me that his rhythm and timing there just all on, even as a pitcher like I waas, you could tell these things and exploit Brian Dozier.
00:15:57
Now First pitch Mrs.
00:15:59
To him, it's Ball one, that batting average hovering in the high to thirties, five homers and 22 R B I's waiting on the one a ball in the strike, two balls and a strike to Dozer.
00:16:36
No score.
00:16:37
Here is we play inning number two, 22 and two now from the strength strike three Caldas, he says.
00:17:05
You got to be hidden.
00:17:06
Me with side retired one left for San Diego will go to the bottom of the second.
00:17:12
No score now in the box.
00:17:25
Hernandez now a flare out to left center.
00:17:37
Left fielder coming in, But he can't make the play, is it? Finds the outfield grass.
00:17:56
Now Gavin Lux is he'll take a look at a strike on the outside corner, its own one.
00:18:02
Look.
00:18:03
Casey is at least partially known for a good change up, and it's not just any change of speed pitch.
00:18:07
It dances all over the place runner at first with no APs here and boy big problems here to start this at bat, its own to now man.
00:18:24
That pitch had the look of a fastball straight changeup in the bottom. Fell out of it.
00:18:38
Slice down the left side, but followed.
00:18:48
Missed with it.
00:18:49
It's one and two 23 and this one gets away, and on the play, the runner moves into scoring position.
00:19:05
Now it's second.
00:19:06
Well, the intent there with that two strike pitch was obviously to get into fish for something he couldn't do a whole lot with.
00:19:13
But there's the risk that comes with that as well.
00:19:15
If you don't execute or your catcher can handle it very well.
00:19:18
You give up free basis to to chopped on the ground over Differs.
00:19:27
He's got it Onley playoff picture covering and the runner will advance to third now.
00:19:40
So coming to the plate, will Smith get his first opportunity in this one? He said.
00:19:49
Here it comes, and a sinker dips too low there into the dirt.
00:19:53
In fact, below the zone.
00:20:05
A swing and a miss.
00:20:09
No score here, but a potential run is 90 feet away with one gun in front of the changeup, and he can't keep it fair.
00:20:19
Two strikes on him, now two and two to the Dodgers catcher swing and a miss on the change up there, too.
00:20:40
Well, their chances of pushing across the run took a pretty good hit after that strike out.
00:20:45
It's so much tougher.
00:20:46
Poor guy from third with instead of one facing union it, or you need to get lucky with wild picture of past stepping in.
00:21:02
Now, Walker Buehler a sinker to and finds zone for strike, one runner in scoring position with come set, the old one.
00:21:21
Swing any pops him up.
00:21:23
Dozer ranging into shallow right.
00:21:25
He's there to track it down, and that will end the inning.
00:21:29
Dodgers leave One will move to the third with no score.
00:21:43
New ending set to get underway next to the plate for the Padres.
00:21:46
Francisco McCrea and he's a guy looking toe break out in a big way.
00:21:51
Hasn't been getting the results he or his club have been hoping for with the knuckle curve, and he swings through it for strike one.
00:21:59
Man.
00:22:00
This has been a game filled of a lot of swings and misses.
00:22:03
Not very many confident swings and this team up there.
00:22:07
They swing at a butterfly right now, but food in front of the plate, lots of swings, lots of misses.
00:22:12
A lot of ugly at bats for this team right now.
00:22:22
Locked him up Muncie over to his left, and he holds it in for the first out of the inning.
00:22:33
Begging you now for San Diego.
00:22:35
Joey Lucas get to take his first cuts here.
00:22:40
Now here's the pitch outside target here, and he hits it for strike. One.
00:22:48
Padres still with big goose egg in the column.
00:22:51
Most farm outside for a little one on one, and this one's high and tight, backing him up to one.
00:23:16
Swung on and missed, and it's even a two and two Friars air into the hit comedy.
00:23:33
He doubled up on the heater right there.
00:23:35
1st 1 he blew right by 2nd 1 Timing was on.
00:23:38
Point was able to get it.
00:23:48
Here's one Lagarde in here is he had to bend out of danger over one forum here in this one one home bindings the zone strike one third inning.
00:24:11
No score to this, now a ball lying toward the gap in left center.
00:24:23
But this will hang up just enough is he takes it in in stride in left center for the second out.
00:24:33
Eric first baseman Eric Hosmer is in over one here in the early going.
00:24:52
Come set.
00:24:53
Now the picks now a swing and a fly ball, and it's a foul ball.
00:25:06
Years strike with the breaking ball.
00:25:09
There seemed to be different philosophies on it.
00:25:11
So, Dan, what was your approach? You know, two counts.
00:25:13
My philosophy is this.
00:25:15
I think the last thing you want to do is throw non competitive pitches.
00:25:18
Matt, throw something down in his own.
00:25:20
Ouch! That one hit him Yeah, there's no question that this one got away from he was cruising, had him down over 2000.
00:25:28
He's gonna be pretty unhappy with that.
00:25:30
You never want to given offense New life in an inning at the plate.
00:25:39
Tommy Pham, two on two out for him here in the third from the stretch, well above the letters with the fastball that time.
00:25:55
I love the fact that he's not scared to go right back inside with another fastball.
00:26:00
I know we hit the last guy, but if he's gonna have success, he's got established.
00:26:04
That pitch in and a good spot for that pitches.
00:26:19
It's Trump foul.
00:26:21
I know that's the spot.
00:26:22
He didn't want to miss him, but he got away with it.
00:26:28
Here's 11 and this one's in the dirt job to corral this quickly has the runners hold on and the 21 two men around with two men out.
00:26:55
Still, even at 22 fastball is just reared up.
00:27:09
Let that one fly in the inning is over.
00:27:12
Raise.
00:27:13
Leave a pair on hand with third coming up.
00:27:16
No score.
00:27:25
Welcome back as the Dodgers prepare for their third turn batting in this one, and fans of the boys in Blue have been treated to quite a bit of production from this line up so far this year.
00:27:35
Coming into the day, there appear the top, the league home run production.
00:27:38
So it's certainly safe to say there find much to watch.
00:27:41
Swing the bats when asked about their success with the long ball.
00:27:44
One player. Totally.
00:27:46
Yeah, home runs are fun and they can change a whole game.
00:27:49
So when we get a pitch, weaken do damage on you better believe we're looking.
00:27:52
Launch that back to you.
00:27:55
All right, thank you.
00:27:58
Ready to go for the last half of the inning.
00:28:01
Digging in Mookie Betts, he went down swinging to strike the home first.
00:28:06
Now here's the pitch, and a first pitch sinker is over for strike one.
00:28:20
All off the plate.
00:28:21
One bowl, one strength target.
00:28:31
But this is low to one turned on, but that's ripped foul down the third base line.
00:28:51
This is on the ground over first.
00:28:53
Kozma has it, and a good throw gets in one with one away.
00:29:00
Now let's give you a look at the standings in the National League West entering play today you see where these two teams sit in relation to one another.
00:29:15
So the bases empty here with one away and digging in the plane will be Justin Turner.
00:29:29
And that will bring up the versatile Max Muncy.
00:29:32
First pitch tombs.
00:29:33
A changeup can't find zone.
00:29:35
It's full.
00:29:36
One was a strikeout victim in his first try.
00:29:46
Now is swinging a ground ball but a foul ball, one on one in the pitch.
00:29:57
Mrs Lohan away for Bull, too.
00:29:59
I don't blame him for not coming over the heart of the plate.
00:30:02
He circled this guy on the lineup card when he got to the yard.
00:30:05
Today, he's been swinging one the hotter bats in the game.
00:30:10
Now the 21 pitch has offered at and missed.
00:30:13
He chased it for strike two.
00:30:16
Great pitch in that situation.
00:30:17
He makes contact on that one.
00:30:19
More than likely, he's hitting into a double play here.
00:30:24
Now, the 22 is a wave and a miss.
00:30:27
He struck him out, fooled him just enough with that pitch to get him go around, According to the umpire.
00:30:33
Sometimes it can be really tough for these big, strong guys because once they're committed to swinging.
00:30:38
It's hard to slow their swings down.
00:30:41
And that appeared to be the case there.
00:30:51
First pitch coming here.
00:30:52
It ISS Cody Bellenger is in with two away.
00:30:55
Now is he looks at a called strike.
00:30:57
One.
00:30:58
Don't expect too many more high fastballs in this one.
00:31:01
He is known for his sinker, keeping the ball on the ground set with the own one bottom of ending number three. Nothing.
00:31:16
Nothing.
00:31:19
Our score and a sinker dips too low.
00:31:20
There, into the dirt, in fact, just hung in there on that one.
00:31:38
That lays off to two now, very one down in a way, but it's full count now.
00:31:49
Three and two.
00:31:51
Good running count right here.
00:31:52
Three balls, two strikes, two outs.
00:31:54
Run! Run First, he'll be off to the races on this pitch.
00:31:58
Sharp groundball to third.
00:32:01
First gets him in.
00:32:02
The side is retired.
00:32:06
One left for L.
00:32:07
A.
00:32:08
Will head to the fourth, Still scoreless, All set for the start of the Ford.
00:32:22
Stepping into the box Fernando Status Jr drew a walk his first time up.
00:32:27
This game is rolling right along as we move into the middle innings with no score.
00:32:32
You'd think By now, one of these two teams would be able to get some base runners on and get him in.
00:32:37
But that hasn't been the case.
00:32:39
This guy's been throwing the ball great so far, but it's gonna be tested here.
00:32:43
45 and six coming up this part of the lineup.
00:32:46
And he falls behind Owen to another one, sent foul.
00:33:01
The two once more swung on and missed.
00:33:07
He got him on strikes.
00:33:09
That's really disappointing for a guy that has wheels right.
00:33:13
All he wants to do is get on base and take advantage of the strength of his game, which is his speed.
00:33:18
But with the strikeout right there, you can't get on first base if you strike out.
00:33:29
Here's Manny Machado.
00:33:31
Now with one away, he won't catch up with the fastball and its own one.
00:33:38
Looking to put the ball in play here.
00:33:40
He went down on strikes in his first at bat, a ball and a strike.
00:33:52
Now, Machado down low, two balls and a strike cut fastball that time, but he doesn't bite it.
00:34:13
Now it's three and one.
00:34:15
Teams been struggling on offense.
00:34:17
Let your d work for you right here, pound zone look like a cut fastball there and all they could do with it has filed it off to the right.
00:34:35
Comes with the fastball, but it's outside for bull form.
00:34:39
Well, the reason power hitters generally draw more walks and other guys is exactly what we saw right there.
00:34:45
Pictures work around.
00:34:46
They've been nibble the corners a lot more so they don't get burned.
00:34:49
He made some good pitches, but he just couldn't get him to chase enough out of the zone.
00:34:55
So here's Wil Myers.
00:34:57
He's over one thus far.
00:35:07
Here comes the first picks.
00:35:09
Slider gets called in the bottom part of his own.
00:35:13
It's not always about filling up the strike zone all the time.
00:35:17
Every inning he's pitching well is we're moving into the middle innings, but interestingly, less than 50% of his first pitches and we'll have to leave it.
00:35:26
There is.
00:35:27
The play is made here. Toe end the inning.
00:35:29
Padres go down quietly onto the bottom of the fourth.
00:35:32
Now, still, with no score stepping up.
00:35:40
Now see here, look to get something going here in this scoreless ball game, first offering on its way.
00:35:58
It took a little off and it's in for a called strike.
00:36:00
One strike two is it catches the outside corner after two great pitches.
00:36:13
He has a lot of options right now.
00:36:15
He could bounce something or go elevated fastball.
00:36:19
There's a bill low.
00:36:20
This is with the changeup, two balls and two strikes to Cory Seager.
00:36:31
Wow, that was a close pitch on one and two accounts now in two in two.
00:36:35
But boy, that one very easily could have been called Strike. Three.
00:36:39
Really close pitch well off the inside that time is the sinker mrs for a bowl Wow from a 1232 on that last pitch on to two wasn't even close.
00:36:52
He had this guy on the ropes, but now he let him right back into this at bat, hard to short, right to him.
00:37:02
Throw on two first and one shortstop grounds out to the other one away, so the bases air empty with one man gone on.
00:37:11
That means the plug and play utility man Hernandez will back next.
00:37:20
Fought off the plate is it's chopped foul *****ing as the upper hand early is were scoreless in inning number four, and it's one on one wisely.
00:37:41
Laser cut fastball there.
00:37:43
It's two on one could have been three and one.
00:37:53
Instead, it's two and two.
00:37:55
They'd like to see a little bit more discipline in that.
00:37:58
You get a count, your favorite swinging a pitch that bad, Not good.
00:38:05
Lofted in the air, out toward right. Center.
00:38:07
Myers on the moon.
00:38:10
He tracks it down and makes the play to record the second.
00:38:16
Digging in for a second at bat, Gavin Lux comes into this at bat over one in the ballgame, ready with the first pitch.
00:38:25
Here it comes, Ball one taken just off the inside.
00:38:32
No runs, three hits, No errors for the Dodgers thus far.
00:38:38
That's a little low there.
00:38:40
It's, too, and not a great spot to be in right here to a no.
00:38:44
But I'm not so sure why he's pitching this guy so cautiously.
00:38:48
A bottom of the order guy.
00:38:49
You don't normally see getting pitched like this skied in the air to straightaway left, and you'll get there in plenty of time to put this one away.
00:39:02
And that ends the inning.
00:39:04
12 three, Go The Dodgers through four.
00:39:07
Still tied.
00:39:08
Nothing, nothing.
00:39:17
Welcome back, Heidi Watney standing by as we get set for the top of the fifth.
00:39:22
Matt.
00:39:23
I talked with San Diego's manager during the inning break about the Padres offensive production at this point, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together, despite the fact that they've yet to push a run across.
00:39:33
The game is still tied, and the pitch count for their opposition is really getting up there.
00:39:38
They think that making him work as hard as he has is going to pay off later in the game and that they just need to stick to the process.
00:39:46
All right, thank you, Brian Dozier at the plate.
00:39:51
We'll start things out as we begin the fifth.
00:40:01
He's ready.
00:40:02
Here's the first offering swing and a drive sent out toward the Gap, but that'll hit off the wall in left center on.
00:40:15
He's gonna make it.
00:40:16
He's in its second base with a leadoff double boy.
00:40:18
After that base knock right there, dear Oh, he extends his hitting streak to seven games.
00:40:23
You can tell he's made some necessary adjustments at the plate.
00:40:26
Any time you're getting a knock every day of the week, you're doing things right, keeping that front shoulder talk, staying inside the ball, not trying to do too much.
00:40:51
Here's the first pitch to him on this one.
00:40:54
Runs up high ball.
00:40:55
One man.
00:40:57
He just missed the zone right there.
00:40:58
One of the toughest pitches in the game, that back door cutter as an offensive player, You give up on that pitch as soon as it comes out of the hand.
00:41:06
Next thing you know, it's trying to grab the corner and the two and nothing.
00:41:16
Pitch three and oh, now no runs, two hits, no errors in the ball game for the Padres.
00:41:28
And there's a strike is you try to work his way back.
00:41:31
It's three and one.
00:41:33
That's a really curious pitch selection. Three.
00:41:36
Oh, and turned in the slider.
00:41:37
You have to wonder if maybe he's lost the field for his fastball, 31 and mrs there for Ball four.
00:41:49
So runners air at first and second with nobody out.
00:41:53
Wow, you know he's not happy with that call.
00:41:55
When, across the plate, it sure looked like a strike to me seemed to catch a ton of the plate.
00:42:00
That's a tough way to give up a walk but he's got to put it behind him now.
00:42:08
Picture Joey Lucas e steps up to the plate in a sacrifice situation, so let's see if that is indeed on.
00:42:15
Right here.
00:42:22
First pitch coming.
00:42:23
Here it is now a bunt attempt here is he gets this one down and a good decision there to sweep this away in foul territory and making try it again.
00:42:35
One pitch, now a bunt attempt here.
00:42:38
Oh, and he can come up with it and this will go down in five.
00:42:46
You could see the exasperation on his face bases full now, following the error coming forward.
00:42:54
The veteran outfielder, one rigorous from the stretch.
00:43:07
Here's the pitch pitcher on the mound.
00:43:10
Has to find a way to minimize damage right here.
00:43:12
Gotta believe he's willing to trade two outs tight spot, bases loaded, nobody out.
00:43:27
He's quickly in the whole, going to just way too patient in this situation with the bases loaded like this is your chance to be the hero now with Hunter.
00:43:43
But that's in for a booth lofted in the air out toward right center.
00:43:56
That's giving Chase makes the catch.
00:43:58
Here comes the runner from third.
00:44:01
He will score on the sacrifice fly.
00:44:03
Aziz in with our first Italian of longing.
00:44:07
This is pretty much been a pictures duels so far.
00:44:09
So any way you can score running at Sac Fly right there brings home the 1st 1 of the game here in the middle innings.
00:44:18
Eric Hosmer to plate now first pitch of the at bat righties starting pollution now in the booth.
00:44:51
10 pop him up.
00:44:54
Seeger has a play.
00:44:57
He's got it in.
00:44:58
There are two down.
00:45:02
That's exactly what they wanted out of that gets up in the zone.
00:45:06
They took him up the ladder and he couldn't get up to it.
00:45:09
So that was an easy pop, well executed pitch there, standing in Tommy Pham, and we'll see what he could do here with a pair of runners on base and two gone here in the fifth, looking to keep this one run game.
00:45:25
The pitch fastball in there for a called strike.
00:45:34
I didn't quite catch his own.
00:45:36
Their ball two down runners at first and second 11 is a cutter.
00:45:46
That Mrs two on one has to be a challenge coming up here.
00:45:51
He probably doesn't want to flirt with loading the bases and the sliders in the dirt is he lays off it for the ball thistles spot you like to be in as a good hitter, runners in scoring position and count leverage in your favor.
00:46:22
He sent 31 and that pitch misses for Ball four.
00:46:26
So some intrigue now is the bases are loaded here with two away.
00:46:30
I think he was trying to be a little to find.
00:46:33
Their walk is the result.
00:46:34
Who held the good news is he has a force that every base, bad news.
00:46:38
A single probably drives in a couple of runs and that will bring up Fernando.
00:46:44
It's Antes Jr was sat down on strikes in his last at bat, kind of shocked.
00:46:50
He got blown away with a fastball.
00:46:51
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something that's a on a fastball in there for a strike.
00:47:00
It's only one so important gig ahead with the bases loaded already a difficult situation, so you don't want to make it any harder by falling behind in the count.
00:47:11
Can't find zone.
00:47:13
There is, he lays off the breaking ball has already walked to in this inning Already.
00:47:17
This guy just can't seem to find strikes up.
00:47:21
And that's on the outside.
00:47:22
Quarter one to two out, bases loathe high fly ball.
00:47:33
After graduation, Bell injures on his horse and he makes the catch is just the one run comes across in the inning, so it's one run on one hit, one ever and three men left on base last half of the fifth.
00:47:49
Coming up, it's the Padres won and the Dodgers nothing.
00:47:56
Welcome back to Dodger Stadium.
00:47:57
Let's send it down to the field.
00:47:59
In hiding.
00:48:01
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, a doctor skipper, about his lineups performance so far and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
00:48:09
No, they have not scored yet, but they have been successful in running up the pitch count, something they feel will eventually pay dividends on the scoreboard as the starter gets tired and they're forced to go to the bullpen.
00:48:20
For now, they're sticking to the plan.
00:48:24
All right, Heidi, thank you.
00:48:25
Stepping in.
00:48:26
Will Smith will start things out here in the home fifth, and it's been tough sledding for this lineup through the first half of the game.
00:48:33
Yeah, they haven't had any mo mentum going to the plate so far in this one Met.
00:48:37
They need something to break their way and wake them up a bit.
00:48:40
Be nice to get these fans involved at some point as well.
00:48:47
Here's the pitch, and he runs it in on him and gets him to swim through it for strike one.
00:48:55
Looks like double barreled action now in the San Diego bullpen is they get a lefty and a right hander up to throw wind up May and the old one lays off the singer here, a ball in the strike.
00:49:12
You know, he's probably cheating on that inside pitch after he got jammed earlier.
00:49:17
If you're on the mound right now, you want to try to hit that outside corner, and there's a pretty good chance you'll get him to roll over something.
00:49:27
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
00:49:30
Well, we all know he's not the greatest threat with bad up there.
00:49:33
His numbers certainly aren't that pretty.
00:49:35
But hey, I give him credit.
00:49:36
He's really working account right here.
00:49:40
A little too tall that time three and one.
00:49:42
Now you can bet they love ball four here.
00:49:46
That gives the pitcher on deck an obvious bunch situation to move the runner into scoring position, and they can will be full three to pick back up the middle.
00:50:19
And that's a base hit.
00:50:20
So the pressure is on to open up the Nice a Be right there with picture coming to the plate.
00:50:27
Your job is to get on in front of.
00:50:29
This should be interesting.
00:50:30
Does he get the bunt sign? You play a little Billy ball and pull it back and try and flaky chick lits with third baseman See what happens now.
00:50:45
Walker Buehler and they'll indeed have the pictures squaring around as he puts this one down only place to first.
00:50:51
So the picture does his.
00:50:53
It's a successful sacrifice.
00:50:58
Top of the lineup.
00:50:59
Stepping in Mookie Betts.
00:51:01
She'll look to bring home that time, run from second with base it into the outfield.
00:51:14
Here's the first pitch to him in the dirt here, and no advance.
00:51:20
It's one look like a definite pitchers pitched there on the inside, one and one to third on the 1st 2 a runner in scoring position with two men gun, and that will bring up the third baseman Justin Turner trying to hold the lead. Here's the delivery.
00:52:22
Oh, to here it is in the dirt.
00:52:38
Throw will go to third and he nails him 1/3.
00:52:41
Great throw.
00:52:43
Nothing doing for the Dodgers Here they trail this 11 to nothing.
00:52:56
I want strictly amount taking the ball here.
00:52:59
It will be making its 15th appearance of the year.
00:53:10
Stepping in Manny Machado.
00:53:12
It was a walk in his last trip, ready with the first pitch.
00:53:18
Here it comes.
00:53:22
Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen, lifted in the air to shallow center field.
00:53:45
Bellenger comes on now and he hasn't won down now.
00:53:53
Batting. Wil Myers will.
00:54:01
Here comes the first pitch right hander against right hander, as this is a bowl.
00:54:07
Wanna know a strike? Even the count.
00:54:16
One in one and misses tune.
00:54:26
One swing and a miss two and two.
00:54:39
Now bases your empty one.
00:54:42
Man.
00:54:47
It neither guy willing to give in and the ad battle continue here now the to to lifted down the line and left, and this is gonna wind up a foul ball 2 to 1 more time and finally wins.
00:55:17
The battle is this is swung on and missed for the second.
00:55:24
Digging in and looking for more Brian Dozier.
00:55:26
He's working on one for two games so far.
00:55:30
First pitch of the at bat on its way.
00:55:34
Well, no way found toward the third base dugout, but this will get back into the seats out of play from the wind up 11 pitch high in the air after center field.
00:55:57
Bell injures under it on.
00:56:00
That's the third out, three up, three down for San Diego, but they hold a one.
00:56:06
Nothing lead into the box.
00:56:18
Justin Turner Elite bangs off here in this one run contest.
00:56:31
He's ready.
00:56:32
Here's the first offering shot down the first baseline reached to his backhand, but he can't come up with it.
00:56:41
And the leadoff man's aboard out there in right field.
00:56:53
Wind up.
00:57:00
Going next up is Max Muncy as he takes a cold strike at the knees, its own one.
00:57:06
This is gonna be an interesting at that.
00:57:08
I think he has to be pitching for a strike out here, so we'll see what kind of sequence he uses swinging strike.
00:57:16
And now it's only to pay with first base Open pictures.
00:57:20
Definitely gonna nibble.
00:57:21
Try and see if the hitter expands his own runner on second.
00:57:26
Nobody out.
00:57:31
Fly ball to straightaway right field.
00:57:34
Myers is under it.
00:57:37
That's the first out of the inning.
00:57:45
Next, Cody Ballenger.
00:57:47
Topple Juan was a ground last time Matty, and it looked like a sinker in his last baby that got him roll over.
00:57:55
Kind of similar situation right here.
00:57:58
Similar stuff on the mountain.
00:58:00
Look for them to try and get him to do exactly the same thing is his last.
00:58:03
Maybe he's got a fight to get it elevated.
00:58:06
Just a little bit more.
00:58:08
Here it comes. One.
00:58:10
This is pulled into right.
00:58:12
Myers Is there two down Corey Seager.
00:58:25
He gets with two away as they continue to trail in this close game.
00:58:29
Well, Mathis has been a big hitting on the mountain.
00:58:31
He's had to face the middle of the order, and so far, he's held a day.
00:58:35
Yeah, this feels like the kind of bending will look back on at the end of the game, even if the result of it changes dramatically here.
00:58:49
Set in the pitch? No, he said one a one as he lays off loathe.
00:59:13
We ground her back to the moon.
00:59:16
Rwanda first, and that error won't come back.
00:59:19
To haunt him, after all, is the inning is over, hitting an error in the inning, but they failed to score.
00:59:25
We're through six full.
00:59:27
It's the Padres won and the Dodgers nothing.
00:59:34
Scott Alexander is on the pitch from the bullpen now to start any number seven number ready for another shot Now Francisco Mafia already the beginning of the seventh inning here is this game has had a very brisk pace to it. So far.
01:00:03
Ready to deliver.
01:00:04
Here's the first pitch sinker toe open the A B in there for strike one.
01:00:09
Alexander is adjusting to the new normal.
01:00:12
His MLB now mandates that relievers reach the end of an inning or face three or more batters before being replaced.
01:00:19
For a one time lefty specialist like this, that's a big change.
01:00:23
Barely able to make contact down owing to now, nothing in to count and the pitch.
01:00:42
And here's a slider that runs inside that time, and that will keep him from diving out over the plate, and a good sinker there gets him swinging for the first time.
01:00:59
We've seen some really good pitching from these guys on this one.
01:01:03
Bullpen has looked sharp and, if backed up, a nice effort turned in by the starter.
01:01:06
Thes days.
01:01:08
Pitching has become a full staff effort, and I've been impressed with job these guys have done so far in.
01:01:17
Now.
01:01:18
Joey Lucas E pops him up toward the left side of the infield and he'll put this way for the second out.
01:01:27
There's one leg, ours.
01:01:28
Now he's got a base it tonight.
01:01:30
He's over to with a sacrifice.
01:01:32
To this point, he's ready.
01:01:38
Here's the first offering slow roller left side when he can't pick it up cleanly and they'll have no Playas.
01:01:45
He reaches first base safely again with two outs.
01:01:49
The picture was mentally in the dugout already.
01:01:51
Now he's gotta regroup and find a way to get out of this hard.
01:01:55
Not to feel for the guy runner at first following the error.
01:02:06
And here comes the first baseman, Eric Hosmer.
01:02:10
Yeah, and this is the guy for me.
01:02:11
I think this is the guy in the clubhouse that the guys truly gravitate towards.
01:02:16
The title package of Eric Hosmer's game is really special to out with a man at first swing and a miss, and he's in the holo to now, so back to back sliders for strikes Does he come back with yet another.
01:02:37
A normal good plan to throw three consecutive sliders and grow.
01:02:40
This guy's slider is so good, I think he might throw it again.
01:02:44
Rwanda.
01:02:45
Muncie gets him, and with that bill in the inning, leave one.
01:02:50
But they're up one to nothing.
01:03:03
Striding in, Kiki Hernandez hit in two tries for him so far, first offering on its way down the third base line.
01:03:26
But a foul ball here.
01:03:28
01 here, come and that's in there is well known to man.
01:03:39
This guy's really picks well, so far, attacking the strike zone, and he's really kept these hitters off balance off speed, pitch in the dirt because he takes it for a bowl.
01:03:55
Some action out of the bullpen, couple of right handers starting to loosen up.
01:04:06
Here he comes on a ball into strength.
01:04:10
Look like a sinker there, get a little below the knee.
01:04:15
Expect a challenge right here.
01:04:16
does not want to run account for slapped hard the opposite way.
01:04:27
The outfield grass for innovation on this will bang up against the wall, and he's able to muscle its way up.
01:04:34
The second is, you reach here with a two basic finally, a little something for them to get excited about.
01:04:41
A rally can begin with a single swing of the baton.
01:04:43
This might be their chance right here.
01:04:45
They struggled to produce a lot of runs.
01:04:48
There is a second base, a shot to the outfield scores and who knows what kind of role they could get on.
01:04:53
Gotta take it one good at that at a time.
01:04:58
The skipper of the Padres is up out of the dugout on his way to the mound, and we're going to see a pitching changes that's gonna do it for his starter here tonight.
01:05:07
So is he departs? He can't lose this ballgame, but he is responsible for the runner at second meeting.
01:05:13
It'd be a no decision if that run comes across the score.
01:05:18
So they go to the bullpen now and it will be the left hander here to face the upcoming left handed batter at the plate Gavin Lux as the first played for a ball one or two for two fastball at 96 on the radar gun, and it's one in one from the script.
01:06:12
Lofted in the air out toward right center, Myers moves to his right and put this one away in the alley for out number one next for the Dodgers Smith strikeout victim his first trip and then collected a base hit his last time around reading.
01:06:31
Now okay, one or no delivery clearly off with this timing on that in a swinging strike, it's not easy to get your barrel toe pitch that that could be an effective location as long as he keeps it above the letters.
01:07:07
Looks like they're pinching a bit Here.
01:07:09
It's 31 when you're playing close games like this.
01:07:13
Base runners mean everything so it can ill afford to start giving away free passes.
01:07:18
Count full three balls and two strikes late on the fastball, but he's able to spoil that one off, and you'll get another chance.
01:07:33
Ground ball right side.
01:07:35
Field it cleanly by Osmond.
01:07:37
Only playoff picture covering and the runner will advance to third a J.
01:07:44
Come on to pinch hit here in a big spot.
01:08:02
Here's a slider, nowhere close, and it's one one ball.
01:08:14
No strike hit hard to the right foul slider gets called in the bottom.
01:08:29
Part of that's three straight sliders in a row.
01:08:32
I'd be shocked.
01:08:34
I would be shocked if he went to that.
01:08:35
Well, I'd be looking and he lays off pitch outside as they grow, even at 22 in the year to right field after it is mired.
01:08:49
Get there.
01:08:50
So the inning will continue in its second safely, as this game is tied late with a run scoring away from the play.
01:09:01
You know, hero in today's game, it's not easy scoring in the late inning so that r B I base it tied things up that comes at a really good time.
01:09:09
Yeah, it's not easy.
01:09:10
They got 11 guys in the booth, seven sinking.
01:09:17
That is unbelievable.
01:09:18
He's able to get that now, so that will bring in Mookie Betts.
01:09:22
Been a rough go of things with plate forme so far, but his guys were looking for him to change that right here.
01:09:27
Yeah, nothing better than coming through for the boys in a tight game at, especially when you're kind of due to do something productive.
01:09:40
He's ready. Years.
01:09:49
Go ahead, runs in scoring position here with two down.
01:09:56
Run this one in on him and he can't connect.
01:09:58
So he finds himself down one and two.
01:10:00
Now he just doesn't look comfortable in a box to me.
01:10:03
Tonight, he's been off balance with swings and that one completely kind of even count two balls and two strikes to here It is line drive, and that may be enough to break our time.
01:10:20
That's down for extra bases that'll hit off the wall in left center because he arrives at second without a play as a run is also win, and with it they take the lead before those have to feel really good deal.
01:10:35
You get late gaming, come up with a big R B.
01:10:38
I base it right here to give your team believe no one remembers that ground ball with eyes.
01:10:43
Second inning.
01:10:44
You want to show up when the game is on the line? Can you quiet your emotions down? Take the crowd out of it and slow yourself down enough to come through? And that's exactly what he did.
01:11:08
Ready with the first pitch.
01:11:09
Here it comes, gets the fastball by him here.
01:11:22
He's in control 02 to mid nineties fastballs right there that he doesn't seem to think he can catch up to.
01:11:29
I wouldn't be shocked if he came right at him again with another good one shooting for that lower inside corner.
01:11:38
But he missed with it one and two and the sliders in the dirt as he lays off it for a ball classic back foot slider right there with two strikes, usually gets a ton of swing and misses. Nice.
01:11:56
Lay off right there.
01:11:57
Fight for another pitch.
01:11:59
Two out here in a runner at second.
01:12:04
Never attempted to swing it that ball down low.
01:12:07
It's ball three for the guy on the mound.
01:12:09
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
01:12:12
He's throwing a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment.
01:12:24
Here's the payoff pitch fly ball out toward left center field.
01:12:31
Lagarde would look this one in in that ends the inning, so it's two runs on three hits, no errors in a runner left on.
01:12:40
We'll look ahead to any number eight.
01:12:41
Now Dodgers lead it 2 to 1 via been summoned from the bullpen is he'll do so to start the number.
01:13:02
Digging in Tommy Pham.
01:13:04
It was a walk in his last trip.
01:13:16
First delivery to him on the way.
01:13:39
Great job changing speeds there.
01:13:41
It's going to action in the bullpen as their closer starts to get loose.
01:14:00
Wall in two strikes now Ball and two strikes.
01:14:11
Here's the pitch.
01:14:12
Swung and missed.
01:14:13
He didn't even come close to contact on a ball way out of the zone. One out.
01:14:18
People always talk about how important getting leadoff men on base is, and it's true.
01:14:23
So in the eighth inning of a one run game, that's a really nice job attacking hitter, sending him into the box.
01:14:36
Now Fernando Chatty's Jr look a first pitch fastball for Ball one.
01:14:41
He's hit.
01:14:42
Listen, is to add bad.
01:14:43
So far, 10 is offered at it.
01:14:56
Missed for the first strike.
01:14:59
When I broke into the league, not many guys were throwing that elevated fastball With that much velocity on it.
01:15:04
The game has changed.
01:15:11
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike 21 home grounded down the third base line on first in there.
01:15:32
That was no doubles defense in action right there, and it paid off big time.
01:15:37
That ball was scored, but the third baseman was guarding the line more than usual to prevent an extra base hit, and it ended up being pretty much right at him.
01:15:46
That's good stuff.
01:15:49
Stepping in and ready for another shot.
01:15:51
Manny Machado.
01:15:52
It was a fly out for him in his last trip.
01:16:17
Here comes the first pitch pitcher's duel continues here.
01:16:25
2 to 1 Scores would play the eight hard hit to first.
01:16:32
Only has some trouble with it.
01:16:34
Throw in time on the side.
01:16:39
Padres down in order.
01:16:40
Our score remains to one.
01:16:52
Matt Strong will come on in.
01:16:54
Relief.
01:16:55
Now is he'll make his 10th appearance of the season.
01:16:58
Matt riding in once again, Max once he blew out his last at bat, outfield shaded toward right center.
01:17:22
Here's the first pitch fastball just inside.
01:17:38
Now 10 well, this is the matchup they wanted bringing in their reliever.
01:17:46
But falling behind two and O doesn't exactly help the situation very much into the corner and slicing foul.
01:18:02
He wants that changeup back right there.
01:18:05
Great arm action on that changeup hitter was just a smidge out front, maybe trying to back him up a bit there with the fastball.
01:18:13
Well, that's all three.
01:18:14
And the Dodgers right now would love to start this inning off with a walk anyway to get this leadoff guy on.
01:18:21
Found off that way Now with three and two pit and it's fouled away.
01:18:40
I smoked but right into the ship, and that's a base.
01:18:44
It so a chance for some important insurance here to kick off the bottom of the eighth.
01:18:48
May some guys look out there, Dan, They don't care.
01:18:50
They can execute ball the other way.
01:18:52
It's got that easy.
01:18:53
They're gonna hit it as hard as they can right into it and let the chips fall where they may. You know it's hard.
01:18:59
Deborah, when you come up all the way through high school Italy college ball in the minor leagues, Houston pulling the ball.
01:19:05
That's the type of hitter you are.
01:19:06
Some of these hitters are gonna have to try to make some changes with these exaggerated shifts out in front of its strike, one over to from him.
01:19:14
So far, in this one.
01:19:30
Here's one that Mrs Hyatte's one in one action now in the Padre bullpen as it looks like a right handers getting loose out there.
01:19:47
11 is taken for ball, too.
01:19:59
Skied in the air to straightaway left.
01:20:05
Family will settle under it to make the play for the first out is the runner will have to head back to first.
01:20:12
Ready for another chance.
01:20:13
Corey Seager ground out victim last time up.
01:20:17
Yet Maddie experiences picture to try and get the same result.
01:20:20
That's his last at bat right hair.
01:20:21
Double play is in order.
01:20:23
Anything on the ground way this defense is.
01:20:26
They could certainly role to helping fires me up more than watching and take a picture.
01:20:33
Gives pitches away batters able to keep his hands inside.
01:20:37
Not trying too much force me to sing.
01:20:49
So now to the plate.
01:20:50
PK demand is high and deep out to left field, and that ball gets down out here the wall and should be extra bases on.
01:20:59
They will hold that runner over third as you move up only 90 feet, but the bases are loaded with away.
01:21:07
Nice piece of hitting right there.
01:21:08
Look like the guy on Second had to respect.
01:21:10
It frees a little bit.
01:21:12
They had to freeze their for a second to make sure that line drive gets down, but eventually does get the third base.
01:21:19
Now Gavin Lux, as he will take a fastball in there at the knees for strike one off the outside.
01:21:37
That time is the breaking ball.
01:21:38
Can't catch the zone.
01:21:53
11 takes a pass.
01:21:55
And, Mrs, that's strike two.
01:21:58
That's just a great mix of pitches right there.
01:22:00
And that's what this guy's gonna do if he's gonna keep this team off.
01:22:06
Fouled away, bases loaded with only one out.
01:22:17
And he found this one off, and this is swung on and missed a huge out there as the basis will stay loaded with two away.
01:22:34
Yes, they say, there's a hole in pursuing in that location.
01:22:37
So a good job they're exploiting that that could be really hard for some guys to overcome when teams start figuring out what locations you just can't handle at the plate.
01:22:52
Now, Will Smith, first pitch to him, runs a bit inside for Ball one.
01:22:57
He's working on a one for three thus far on a great pitch.
01:23:13
They're caught in reaching its one and one.
01:23:16
Wow! Great pitch right there. Right.
01:23:18
Changing speeds.
01:23:19
How about that straight changeup about that swing? Howdy.
01:23:22
If you're waving at Make Slider is in there.
01:23:25
Now it's one and two.
01:23:27
Hey, this is a huge pitch right here.
01:23:29
It would be demoralizing to watch this inning slip away from scratch.
01:23:36
12 strikes him out.
01:23:39
So a missed opportunity at the plate is he strands.
01:23:42
Three runners in the side is retired back to back strikeouts.
01:23:45
Keep him out of danger.
01:23:47
Maurin.
01:23:48
A moment on this Friday night You're watching MLB Network now the skippers on his way out toward the home plate area.
01:23:58
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here lately.
01:24:06
Jansen comes on from the pen hoping to finish this one off here in the top of the ninth.
01:24:11
Now number? Yeah, leading off the inning.
01:24:21
Wil Myers, look to get something going here and even this game up.
01:24:25
Not an easy thing to do to try to come back and tie game or take the lead off a guy like this.
01:24:31
One of the game's elite closer.
01:24:33
Here we go within a number nine is the first pitch misses for Ball one swinging a ground ball to third.
01:25:02
Turner has it on the on balance Throw gets a nice play for the out.
01:25:07
That was a no doubles defense in action right there, and it paid off big time.
01:25:12
That ball was scored, but the third baseman was guarding the line more than usual to prevent an extra base hit, and it ended up being pretty much right at him. That's good stuff.
01:25:30
First delivery to him on the way.
01:25:33
Brian Dozier comes on with one way as he looks at a ball.
01:25:36
It's one of and think about it in Game one of this series, they've already had to go deep into their bullpen.
01:25:43
This could affect them for the rest of the weekend.
01:25:45
If they don't get really good starting pitching.
01:25:56
Does your waiting on the 10 and he won't bite it.
01:26:00
That one, either. It's too.
01:26:09
Here comes nearly got the inside of the ball.
01:26:15
Francisco Mahia waits on deck, ready with 30 pitch and he lays off ball four.
01:26:30
So now the potential time run here is aboard late in the game, and that whole of that.
01:26:35
I feel like you really didn't want to challenge him.
01:26:38
And I'm really surprised by that, because I think this is a guy in the bottom 30 order.
01:26:43
You have to go right after digging in now Francisco Mafia.
01:26:48
They'll be looking for something that could drive into the gap and drive home that time run from first come set.
01:26:57
Here's the nothing in nothing.
01:27:00
That's a pitch he'd like to have back.
01:27:02
You're not gonna see very many pitches like that from a picture of this warning.
01:27:06
I'm sure he'd like to have that one back to take a swing at it.
01:27:11
Runner at first year, one man lifted into the air out toward center field.
01:27:24
Bellenger.
01:27:25
We'll have plenty of room as he makes the catch, and there's a big out number.
01:27:30
Two.
01:27:31
Greg Garcia will be called upon here to hit with the game on the line.
01:27:47
One comes in with that average down in the two forties, still without a home run.
01:27:53
Six R B countdown with ball in the strike in on the hands.
01:28:19
It's two balls and a strike found on a round of over 39,000 on their feet and another foul ball.
01:28:53
San Diego down to their final strike.
01:28:56
You die layoff slider there and it works it to full three in two years.
01:29:00
Good spot for an R B.
01:29:02
I put the ball in play with the runner in motion.
01:29:04
He could score all the way from first a struck him out for out number three.
01:29:13
So that'll wrap things up.
01:29:15
Here is a possible tying run.
01:29:17
Stranded occurred, folks.
01:29:19
That's what Kenley Jansen does.
01:29:21
Hey, enters the game.
01:29:22
The hopes of the other team they usually just leave slammed the door again right here.
01:29:27
Close one tonight to one.
01:29:29
The final score.
01:29:30
Dodgers jumped ahead in the seventh inning and never gave the lead back.
01:29:34
Scott Alexander claims to win out of the pen. His first.
01:29:38
Kenley Jansen closes the door for the save his 14.
01:29:43
So that's a wrap for us here tonight for my partners in Booth, Mark Rosen, Van Fleet, Zack and Heidi walking on the field.
01:29:49
This is Matt Vasgersian.
01:29:50
You've been watching MLB Network.
01:29:52

00:00:23
MLB Network's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air tonight, the opener of a three game series between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
00:00:34
Looking forward to this match up, and it's next on MLB network Walker Buehler beyond the Mount for the series opener.
00:00:49
What do we need to know here, Danny? How good is this guy been up to this point in a day in age where guys and teams air scoring lots of runs toe have an e.
00:00:59
R A sub to that saying something.
00:01:01
Hopefully, we're gonna see more of the same from this guy.
00:01:04
One of the top pictures at all.
00:01:06
The league at the plate, one rigorous, and we are setting for baseball here this evening.
00:01:12
The center fielder first pitch of the at bat on its way underway now on a Friday night, is the first pitch of our Siri's misses for ball one dandy row.
00:01:24
You check out this Dodger team.
00:01:26
Is they interplay here tonight? They've had it going the last 10 games.
00:01:29
They're seven and three over that stretch, including a win last time out.
00:01:33
Yeah, Matty, I think the key so winning today's game let's focused on the offense.
00:01:38
They have toe hunt the fast bill.
00:01:40
They cannot miss it.
00:01:42
You can't allow yourself to get deep in the count and have to deal with off speed stuff exploding out of the zone.
00:01:48
You get 102031 what I like to refer to his count.
00:01:52
Leverage.
00:01:53
You have to find a way.
00:01:55
Traffic with Rhoda first is in time for the first out.
00:02:02
Really? So coming to the plate, Eric Hosmer has.
00:02:08
He's been in a pretty good stretch over the last 10 or so ballgames ready to deliver.
00:02:23
Here's the first pitch fastball here is we'll take a look a full 11 And and there are the umpires assigned to this one.
00:02:33
Calling balls and strikes is Mr Mike Film or a zero Mike Film or one of the most consistent umpires throughout the league.
00:02:41
Both pictures and position players love this.
00:02:43
Yeah, I think one of the best in the business.
00:02:45
How I judge a good teammate is every day opens that door.
00:02:48
Is he consistent? Can I count on him? Mike Fillmore's the exact same way behind the dish and try to hold back swing, but will do.
00:02:55
So unsuccessfully is that's ruled a strike lifetime versus this picture.
00:03:00
He's really struggled one for 15.
00:03:03
He's also been a strikeout victim six times slung right over the top of that one is this is a little dribbler out in front of the mouth and there's out number two.
00:03:15
So stepping in Tommy Pham.
00:03:17
First chance for in here in the top of the first with nobody on pitch on the way.
00:03:29
One two out.
00:03:32
Nobody on family than even one in one count.
00:03:40
Now, now, here's the pitch.
00:03:54
Slow little roller to third throw on.
00:03:58
Muncie gets him.
00:03:59
And with that bill in the inning, Padres down in order with Padres.
00:04:05
Nothing.
00:04:06
Dodgers coming up.
00:04:07
You're watching MLB Network.
00:04:17
Joey Casey is on the mound for the Padres in this one, Dan, Any thoughts? Hey, every team needs a picture like this one.
00:04:25
Here is numbers aren't gonna blow you away.
00:04:27
Career e r.
00:04:28
A.
00:04:29
Just under four.
00:04:30
But one thing he does, he takes the ball every five days, throw strikes and gives his team a chance to win every single time he goes out there.
00:04:37
He'll be fun to watch this one here today to go now Looking back lead things off here in the bottom half of the first infield in the over shift here.
00:04:56
Now the pitch and a change up here.
00:05:00
But that's taken low in the dirt for a ball warning.
00:05:18
One to the Dodgers lead off, man two on one.
00:05:29
Now movie a little early, and now it's even at two and two.
00:05:46
Now here's the pitch swing and a miss on the fastball, and that's the first out.
00:05:54
Well, there's nothing better from a picture standpoint that watching that high fastball high piece of cheese swung at and missed.
00:06:01
That pitch looks so inviting.
00:06:03
Teoh hit, But it's awfully tough to put in place into the box.
00:06:10
Justin Turner.
00:06:14
We'll take a look a ball one so far this year against southpaws.
00:06:18
Turner as batting line residing in the to nineties, looking to boost that even higher here and he watches a called strike is this.
00:06:29
One.
00:06:30
Bears in on him one and one on the season.
00:06:32
Turner as a slugging percentage, a little over 4 25 a respectable number.
00:06:41
This is in the air to write in their base, hit first and hustling for second and he'll reach second now with one away.
00:06:52
That was not a good pitch, but I handled it nicely.
00:06:55
Guys pictures got to wonder what he has to do to get a pass.
00:06:58
This guy, that pitch was off the plate, but he showed great reach, gets good extension and drives it for a two bagger.
00:07:09
Settling in now next month.
00:07:10
See, he's been tearing the cover off the ball these past few days.
00:07:14
As you see there.
00:07:28
First pitch, Sean.
00:07:30
Its way.
00:07:31
One.
00:07:41
Now. The 10 to pitch mix here.
00:07:46
If you're in the batter's box, you're looking for something up.
00:07:49
Sinker changeup right here.
00:07:50
Gotta get it up now.
00:07:52
The one in one pic strike two swinging, in my opinion, one of the toughest pitches in the game to square up.
00:07:59
Just a heavy sinker with good downward action.
00:08:04
And he found this one off Turner runner at second with one away again.
00:08:15
Another foul ball.
00:08:25
Good fight to that sinker is he gets him to swing through it for out number two.
00:08:29
He put up a pretty good battle at the plate right there.
00:08:31
They finally get him on a 12 pitch, but you could say that he was laying down with.
00:08:37
He really made a strikeout.
00:08:50
So here's Cody Bellenger as the first pitch, Mrs High and inside for ball, one runner in scoring position at second with two down, that evens it up one on one.
00:09:10
No way Pits, who jumped the gun a bit on that slogan.
00:09:17
He's down one and two, two balls and two strikes now.
00:09:35
Full count of Ballenger.
00:09:36
Three balls, two strikes Now on three.
00:09:39
To as a pitcher, you gotta go with pitch that you feel most comfortable throwing with yanked high and deep down the line in right and it's a foul ball.
00:10:03
He sent the pay off pitch.
00:10:05
He loses him on all four about coming now for Cedar, and he could give his guys in early lead if he could come through here.
00:10:27
He's ready.
00:10:28
Here's the first offering.
00:10:29
Hit hard to the right side, cleanly by husband on two out.
00:10:34
Threat will not come to pass as the inning is over.
00:10:37
Dodgers strand a couple way are still scoreless.
00:10:52
Next is Fernando Taxis.
00:10:53
Junior get a started in the top of the second go, first offering on its way.
00:11:11
One of Mrs Ball, too big, sweeping breaking ball right there.
00:11:20
Good pitch.
00:11:21
But if he wants to get him to swing at it, you'll have to bring it in a little bit closer to the strike zone.
00:11:34
Ball's in his strength.
00:11:36
They teach pictures to keep the ball down.
00:11:38
But if you can locate upstairs like that, it really gives you the ability to mess with the eye level of the matter.
00:11:47
Padres shortstop ahead with three ball, one strike count.
00:11:52
To be honest with you, I'm a little bit more afraid.
00:11:54
That guy on deck and they got it's up right now.
00:11:56
If I'm on the mound, I want this guy up right now.
00:11:58
He's the guy that's got a beat, me three in one pic and that misses for Ball four.
00:12:05
So it's a leadoff walk here to start the second.
00:12:08
He's really struggled with his command in this game, no doubt about it, but make things worse.
00:12:13
He just lost one of the fastest guys in the booth and in steps Manny Machado.
00:12:24
First chance for him here with a man on following the leadoff walk from the belt kicks and deals.
00:12:55
Nobody out. Runner on first.
00:13:04
Can't get around quick enough, and that will move the counter one and one layoff fastball up in the zone here, and that brings it to on one now that was attempting pitch to swing at right there.
00:13:22
A big power guy like this really wants something he can elevate and drive out of.
00:13:27
The ballpark Has a look.
00:13:29
Now the pits fastball there's looked at for Strike two and this Mrs.
00:13:42
So that'll filled accounted three and two.
00:13:46
Gotta believe that runner from first is gonna be in motion, especially in this situation as an offensive player.
00:13:51
Just hit something hard because those defenders are going to be moving now.
00:13:59
The three and to pick is swung on and missed Egat.
00:14:03
That's just a great pitch, both on the call from the catcher and the execution.
00:14:08
If he hits it, there's a good chance it turns into a double play ball.
00:14:11
But it's also a spot that's going to get a lot of whips, too.
00:14:14
That's excellent digit.
00:14:26
Here's Wil Myers, and this is hit hard to the right side, but foul ready with Theo, one Myers playing here in his age 29 season, he was selected in the third round back in the 2009 MLB draft.
00:14:58
Yeah, he has turned himself into a really nice ball player.
00:15:02
I wouldn't put him on a superstar level, but you know what they didn't miss with this pick, either.
00:15:06
You go into high rounds and you carve out a career the way this guy has nice pic throw over to the bag.
00:15:12
Throw is up the line as it gets away.
00:15:27
Look like a cut fastball there, and he got into swing through it for the second out.
00:15:31
Well, his struggles continue.
00:15:33
It's been a rough golden plate handle watching this head that it's clear to me that his rhythm and timing there just all on, even as a pitcher like I waas, you could tell these things and exploit Brian Dozier.
00:15:57
Now First pitch Mrs.
00:15:59
To him, it's Ball one, that batting average hovering in the high to thirties, five homers and 22 R B I's waiting on the one a ball in the strike, two balls and a strike to Dozer.
00:16:36
No score.
00:16:37
Here is we play inning number two, 22 and two now from the strength strike three Caldas, he says.
00:17:05
You got to be hidden.
00:17:06
Me with side retired one left for San Diego will go to the bottom of the second.
00:17:12
No score now in the box.
00:17:25
Hernandez now a flare out to left center.
00:17:37
Left fielder coming in, But he can't make the play, is it? Finds the outfield grass.
00:17:56
Now Gavin Lux is he'll take a look at a strike on the outside corner, its own one.
00:18:02
Look.
00:18:03
Casey is at least partially known for a good change up, and it's not just any change of speed pitch.
00:18:07
It dances all over the place runner at first with no APs here and boy big problems here to start this at bat, its own to now man.
00:18:24
That pitch had the look of a fastball straight changeup in the bottom. Fell out of it.
00:18:38
Slice down the left side, but followed.
00:18:48
Missed with it.
00:18:49
It's one and two 23 and this one gets away, and on the play, the runner moves into scoring position.
00:19:05
Now it's second.
00:19:06
Well, the intent there with that two strike pitch was obviously to get into fish for something he couldn't do a whole lot with.
00:19:13
But there's the risk that comes with that as well.
00:19:15
If you don't execute or your catcher can handle it very well.
00:19:18
You give up free basis to to chopped on the ground over Differs.
00:19:27
He's got it Onley playoff picture covering and the runner will advance to third now.
00:19:40
So coming to the plate, will Smith get his first opportunity in this one? He said.
00:19:49
Here it comes, and a sinker dips too low there into the dirt.
00:19:53
In fact, below the zone.
00:20:05
A swing and a miss.
00:20:09
No score here, but a potential run is 90 feet away with one gun in front of the changeup, and he can't keep it fair.
00:20:19
Two strikes on him, now two and two to the Dodgers catcher swing and a miss on the change up there, too.
00:20:40
Well, their chances of pushing across the run took a pretty good hit after that strike out.
00:20:45
It's so much tougher.
00:20:46
Poor guy from third with instead of one facing union it, or you need to get lucky with wild picture of past stepping in.
00:21:02
Now, Walker Buehler a sinker to and finds zone for strike, one runner in scoring position with come set, the old one.
00:21:21
Swing any pops him up.
00:21:23
Dozer ranging into shallow right.
00:21:25
He's there to track it down, and that will end the inning.
00:21:29
Dodgers leave One will move to the third with no score.
00:21:43
New ending set to get underway next to the plate for the Padres.
00:21:46
Francisco McCrea and he's a guy looking toe break out in a big way.
00:21:51
Hasn't been getting the results he or his club have been hoping for with the knuckle curve, and he swings through it for strike one.
00:21:59
Man.
00:22:00
This has been a game filled of a lot of swings and misses.
00:22:03
Not very many confident swings and this team up there.
00:22:07
They swing at a butterfly right now, but food in front of the plate, lots of swings, lots of misses.
00:22:12
A lot of ugly at bats for this team right now.
00:22:22
Locked him up Muncie over to his left, and he holds it in for the first out of the inning.
00:22:33
Begging you now for San Diego.
00:22:35
Joey Lucas get to take his first cuts here.
00:22:40
Now here's the pitch outside target here, and he hits it for strike. One.
00:22:48
Padres still with big goose egg in the column.
00:22:51
Most farm outside for a little one on one, and this one's high and tight, backing him up to one.
00:23:16
Swung on and missed, and it's even a two and two Friars air into the hit comedy.
00:23:33
He doubled up on the heater right there.
00:23:35
1st 1 he blew right by 2nd 1 Timing was on.
00:23:38
Point was able to get it.
00:23:48
Here's one Lagarde in here is he had to bend out of danger over one forum here in this one one home bindings the zone strike one third inning.
00:24:11
No score to this, now a ball lying toward the gap in left center.
00:24:23
But this will hang up just enough is he takes it in in stride in left center for the second out.
00:24:33
Eric first baseman Eric Hosmer is in over one here in the early going.
00:24:52
Come set.
00:24:53
Now the picks now a swing and a fly ball, and it's a foul ball.
00:25:06
Years strike with the breaking ball.
00:25:09
There seemed to be different philosophies on it.
00:25:11
So, Dan, what was your approach? You know, two counts.
00:25:13
My philosophy is this.
00:25:15
I think the last thing you want to do is throw non competitive pitches.
00:25:18
Matt, throw something down in his own.
00:25:20
Ouch! That one hit him Yeah, there's no question that this one got away from he was cruising, had him down over 2000.
00:25:28
He's gonna be pretty unhappy with that.
00:25:30
You never want to given offense New life in an inning at the plate.
00:25:39
Tommy Pham, two on two out for him here in the third from the stretch, well above the letters with the fastball that time.
00:25:55
I love the fact that he's not scared to go right back inside with another fastball.
00:26:00
I know we hit the last guy, but if he's gonna have success, he's got established.
00:26:04
That pitch in and a good spot for that pitches.
00:26:19
It's Trump foul.
00:26:21
I know that's the spot.
00:26:22
He didn't want to miss him, but he got away with it.
00:26:28
Here's 11 and this one's in the dirt job to corral this quickly has the runners hold on and the 21 two men around with two men out.
00:26:55
Still, even at 22 fastball is just reared up.
00:27:09
Let that one fly in the inning is over.
00:27:12
Raise.
00:27:13
Leave a pair on hand with third coming up.
00:27:16
No score.
00:27:25
Welcome back as the Dodgers prepare for their third turn batting in this one, and fans of the boys in Blue have been treated to quite a bit of production from this line up so far this year.
00:27:35
Coming into the day, there appear the top, the league home run production.
00:27:38
So it's certainly safe to say there find much to watch.
00:27:41
Swing the bats when asked about their success with the long ball.
00:27:44
One player. Totally.
00:27:46
Yeah, home runs are fun and they can change a whole game.
00:27:49
So when we get a pitch, weaken do damage on you better believe we're looking.
00:27:52
Launch that back to you.
00:27:55
All right, thank you.
00:27:58
Ready to go for the last half of the inning.
00:28:01
Digging in Mookie Betts, he went down swinging to strike the home first.
00:28:06
Now here's the pitch, and a first pitch sinker is over for strike one.
00:28:20
All off the plate.
00:28:21
One bowl, one strength target.
00:28:31
But this is low to one turned on, but that's ripped foul down the third base line.
00:28:51
This is on the ground over first.
00:28:53
Kozma has it, and a good throw gets in one with one away.
00:29:00
Now let's give you a look at the standings in the National League West entering play today you see where these two teams sit in relation to one another.
00:29:15
So the bases empty here with one away and digging in the plane will be Justin Turner.
00:29:29
And that will bring up the versatile Max Muncy.
00:29:32
First pitch tombs.
00:29:33
A changeup can't find zone.
00:29:35
It's full.
00:29:36
One was a strikeout victim in his first try.
00:29:46
Now is swinging a ground ball but a foul ball, one on one in the pitch.
00:29:57
Mrs Lohan away for Bull, too.
00:29:59
I don't blame him for not coming over the heart of the plate.
00:30:02
He circled this guy on the lineup card when he got to the yard.
00:30:05
Today, he's been swinging one the hotter bats in the game.
00:30:10
Now the 21 pitch has offered at and missed.
00:30:13
He chased it for strike two.
00:30:16
Great pitch in that situation.
00:30:17
He makes contact on that one.
00:30:19
More than likely, he's hitting into a double play here.
00:30:24
Now, the 22 is a wave and a miss.
00:30:27
He struck him out, fooled him just enough with that pitch to get him go around, According to the umpire.
00:30:33
Sometimes it can be really tough for these big, strong guys because once they're committed to swinging.
00:30:38
It's hard to slow their swings down.
00:30:41
And that appeared to be the case there.
00:30:51
First pitch coming here.
00:30:52
It ISS Cody Bellenger is in with two away.
00:30:55
Now is he looks at a called strike.
00:30:57
One.
00:30:58
Don't expect too many more high fastballs in this one.
00:31:01
He is known for his sinker, keeping the ball on the ground set with the own one bottom of ending number three. Nothing.
00:31:16
Nothing.
00:31:19
Our score and a sinker dips too low.
00:31:20
There, into the dirt, in fact, just hung in there on that one.
00:31:38
That lays off to two now, very one down in a way, but it's full count now.
00:31:49
Three and two.
00:31:51
Good running count right here.
00:31:52
Three balls, two strikes, two outs.
00:31:54
Run! Run First, he'll be off to the races on this pitch.
00:31:58
Sharp groundball to third.
00:32:01
First gets him in.
00:32:02
The side is retired.
00:32:06
One left for L.
00:32:07
A.
00:32:08
Will head to the fourth, Still scoreless, All set for the start of the Ford.
00:32:22
Stepping into the box Fernando Status Jr drew a walk his first time up.
00:32:27
This game is rolling right along as we move into the middle innings with no score.
00:32:32
You'd think By now, one of these two teams would be able to get some base runners on and get him in.
00:32:37
But that hasn't been the case.
00:32:39
This guy's been throwing the ball great so far, but it's gonna be tested here.
00:32:43
45 and six coming up this part of the lineup.
00:32:46
And he falls behind Owen to another one, sent foul.
00:33:01
The two once more swung on and missed.
00:33:07
He got him on strikes.
00:33:09
That's really disappointing for a guy that has wheels right.
00:33:13
All he wants to do is get on base and take advantage of the strength of his game, which is his speed.
00:33:18
But with the strikeout right there, you can't get on first base if you strike out.
00:33:29
Here's Manny Machado.
00:33:31
Now with one away, he won't catch up with the fastball and its own one.
00:33:38
Looking to put the ball in play here.
00:33:40
He went down on strikes in his first at bat, a ball and a strike.
00:33:52
Now, Machado down low, two balls and a strike cut fastball that time, but he doesn't bite it.
00:34:13
Now it's three and one.
00:34:15
Teams been struggling on offense.
00:34:17
Let your d work for you right here, pound zone look like a cut fastball there and all they could do with it has filed it off to the right.
00:34:35
Comes with the fastball, but it's outside for bull form.
00:34:39
Well, the reason power hitters generally draw more walks and other guys is exactly what we saw right there.
00:34:45
Pictures work around.
00:34:46
They've been nibble the corners a lot more so they don't get burned.
00:34:49
He made some good pitches, but he just couldn't get him to chase enough out of the zone.
00:34:55
So here's Wil Myers.
00:34:57
He's over one thus far.
00:35:07
Here comes the first picks.
00:35:09
Slider gets called in the bottom part of his own.
00:35:13
It's not always about filling up the strike zone all the time.
00:35:17
Every inning he's pitching well is we're moving into the middle innings, but interestingly, less than 50% of his first pitches and we'll have to leave it.
00:35:26
There is.
00:35:27
The play is made here. Toe end the inning.
00:35:29
Padres go down quietly onto the bottom of the fourth.
00:35:32
Now, still, with no score stepping up.
00:35:40
Now see here, look to get something going here in this scoreless ball game, first offering on its way.
00:35:58
It took a little off and it's in for a called strike.
00:36:00
One strike two is it catches the outside corner after two great pitches.
00:36:13
He has a lot of options right now.
00:36:15
He could bounce something or go elevated fastball.
00:36:19
There's a bill low.
00:36:20
This is with the changeup, two balls and two strikes to Cory Seager.
00:36:31
Wow, that was a close pitch on one and two accounts now in two in two.
00:36:35
But boy, that one very easily could have been called Strike. Three.
00:36:39
Really close pitch well off the inside that time is the sinker mrs for a bowl Wow from a 1232 on that last pitch on to two wasn't even close.
00:36:52
He had this guy on the ropes, but now he let him right back into this at bat, hard to short, right to him.
00:37:02
Throw on two first and one shortstop grounds out to the other one away, so the bases air empty with one man gone on.
00:37:11
That means the plug and play utility man Hernandez will back next.
00:37:20
Fought off the plate is it's chopped foul *****ing as the upper hand early is were scoreless in inning number four, and it's one on one wisely.
00:37:41
Laser cut fastball there.
00:37:43
It's two on one could have been three and one.
00:37:53
Instead, it's two and two.
00:37:55
They'd like to see a little bit more discipline in that.
00:37:58
You get a count, your favorite swinging a pitch that bad, Not good.
00:38:05
Lofted in the air, out toward right. Center.
00:38:07
Myers on the moon.
00:38:10
He tracks it down and makes the play to record the second.
00:38:16
Digging in for a second at bat, Gavin Lux comes into this at bat over one in the ballgame, ready with the first pitch.
00:38:25
Here it comes, Ball one taken just off the inside.
00:38:32
No runs, three hits, No errors for the Dodgers thus far.
00:38:38
That's a little low there.
00:38:40
It's, too, and not a great spot to be in right here to a no.
00:38:44
But I'm not so sure why he's pitching this guy so cautiously.
00:38:48
A bottom of the order guy.
00:38:49
You don't normally see getting pitched like this skied in the air to straightaway left, and you'll get there in plenty of time to put this one away.
00:39:02
And that ends the inning.
00:39:04
12 three, Go The Dodgers through four.
00:39:07
Still tied.
00:39:08
Nothing, nothing.
00:39:17
Welcome back, Heidi Watney standing by as we get set for the top of the fifth.
00:39:22
Matt.
00:39:23
I talked with San Diego's manager during the inning break about the Padres offensive production at this point, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together, despite the fact that they've yet to push a run across.
00:39:33
The game is still tied, and the pitch count for their opposition is really getting up there.
00:39:38
They think that making him work as hard as he has is going to pay off later in the game and that they just need to stick to the process.
00:39:46
All right, thank you, Brian Dozier at the plate.
00:39:51
We'll start things out as we begin the fifth.
00:40:01
He's ready.
00:40:02
Here's the first offering swing and a drive sent out toward the Gap, but that'll hit off the wall in left center on.
00:40:15
He's gonna make it.
00:40:16
He's in its second base with a leadoff double boy.
00:40:18
After that base knock right there, dear Oh, he extends his hitting streak to seven games.
00:40:23
You can tell he's made some necessary adjustments at the plate.
00:40:26
Any time you're getting a knock every day of the week, you're doing things right, keeping that front shoulder talk, staying inside the ball, not trying to do too much.
00:40:51
Here's the first pitch to him on this one.
00:40:54
Runs up high ball.
00:40:55
One man.
00:40:57
He just missed the zone right there.
00:40:58
One of the toughest pitches in the game, that back door cutter as an offensive player, You give up on that pitch as soon as it comes out of the hand.
00:41:06
Next thing you know, it's trying to grab the corner and the two and nothing.
00:41:16
Pitch three and oh, now no runs, two hits, no errors in the ball game for the Padres.
00:41:28
And there's a strike is you try to work his way back.
00:41:31
It's three and one.
00:41:33
That's a really curious pitch selection. Three.
00:41:36
Oh, and turned in the slider.
00:41:37
You have to wonder if maybe he's lost the field for his fastball, 31 and mrs there for Ball four.
00:41:49
So runners air at first and second with nobody out.
00:41:53
Wow, you know he's not happy with that call.
00:41:55
When, across the plate, it sure looked like a strike to me seemed to catch a ton of the plate.
00:42:00
That's a tough way to give up a walk but he's got to put it behind him now.
00:42:08
Picture Joey Lucas e steps up to the plate in a sacrifice situation, so let's see if that is indeed on.
00:42:15
Right here.
00:42:22
First pitch coming.
00:42:23
Here it is now a bunt attempt here is he gets this one down and a good decision there to sweep this away in foul territory and making try it again.
00:42:35
One pitch, now a bunt attempt here.
00:42:38
Oh, and he can come up with it and this will go down in five.
00:42:46
You could see the exasperation on his face bases full now, following the error coming forward.
00:42:54
The veteran outfielder, one rigorous from the stretch.
00:43:07
Here's the pitch pitcher on the mound.
00:43:10
Has to find a way to minimize damage right here.
00:43:12
Gotta believe he's willing to trade two outs tight spot, bases loaded, nobody out.
00:43:27
He's quickly in the whole, going to just way too patient in this situation with the bases loaded like this is your chance to be the hero now with Hunter.
00:43:43
But that's in for a booth lofted in the air out toward right center.
00:43:56
That's giving Chase makes the catch.
00:43:58
Here comes the runner from third.
00:44:01
He will score on the sacrifice fly.
00:44:03
Aziz in with our first Italian of longing.
00:44:07
This is pretty much been a pictures duels so far.
00:44:09
So any way you can score running at Sac Fly right there brings home the 1st 1 of the game here in the middle innings.
00:44:18
Eric Hosmer to plate now first pitch of the at bat righties starting pollution now in the booth.
00:44:51
10 pop him up.
00:44:54
Seeger has a play.
00:44:57
He's got it in.
00:44:58
There are two down.
00:45:02
That's exactly what they wanted out of that gets up in the zone.
00:45:06
They took him up the ladder and he couldn't get up to it.
00:45:09
So that was an easy pop, well executed pitch there, standing in Tommy Pham, and we'll see what he could do here with a pair of runners on base and two gone here in the fifth, looking to keep this one run game.
00:45:25
The pitch fastball in there for a called strike.
00:45:34
I didn't quite catch his own.
00:45:36
Their ball two down runners at first and second 11 is a cutter.
00:45:46
That Mrs two on one has to be a challenge coming up here.
00:45:51
He probably doesn't want to flirt with loading the bases and the sliders in the dirt is he lays off it for the ball thistles spot you like to be in as a good hitter, runners in scoring position and count leverage in your favor.
00:46:22
He sent 31 and that pitch misses for Ball four.
00:46:26
So some intrigue now is the bases are loaded here with two away.
00:46:30
I think he was trying to be a little to find.
00:46:33
Their walk is the result.
00:46:34
Who held the good news is he has a force that every base, bad news.
00:46:38
A single probably drives in a couple of runs and that will bring up Fernando.
00:46:44
It's Antes Jr was sat down on strikes in his last at bat, kind of shocked.
00:46:50
He got blown away with a fastball.
00:46:51
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something that's a on a fastball in there for a strike.
00:47:00
It's only one so important gig ahead with the bases loaded already a difficult situation, so you don't want to make it any harder by falling behind in the count.
00:47:11
Can't find zone.
00:47:13
There is, he lays off the breaking ball has already walked to in this inning Already.
00:47:17
This guy just can't seem to find strikes up.
00:47:21
And that's on the outside.
00:47:22
Quarter one to two out, bases loathe high fly ball.
00:47:33
After graduation, Bell injures on his horse and he makes the catch is just the one run comes across in the inning, so it's one run on one hit, one ever and three men left on base last half of the fifth.
00:47:49
Coming up, it's the Padres won and the Dodgers nothing.
00:47:56
Welcome back to Dodger Stadium.
00:47:57
Let's send it down to the field.
00:47:59
In hiding.
00:48:01
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, a doctor skipper, about his lineups performance so far and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
00:48:09
No, they have not scored yet, but they have been successful in running up the pitch count, something they feel will eventually pay dividends on the scoreboard as the starter gets tired and they're forced to go to the bullpen.
00:48:20
For now, they're sticking to the plan.
00:48:24
All right, Heidi, thank you.
00:48:25
Stepping in.
00:48:26
Will Smith will start things out here in the home fifth, and it's been tough sledding for this lineup through the first half of the game.
00:48:33
Yeah, they haven't had any mo mentum going to the plate so far in this one Met.
00:48:37
They need something to break their way and wake them up a bit.
00:48:40
Be nice to get these fans involved at some point as well.
00:48:47
Here's the pitch, and he runs it in on him and gets him to swim through it for strike one.
00:48:55
Looks like double barreled action now in the San Diego bullpen is they get a lefty and a right hander up to throw wind up May and the old one lays off the singer here, a ball in the strike.
00:49:12
You know, he's probably cheating on that inside pitch after he got jammed earlier.
00:49:17
If you're on the mound right now, you want to try to hit that outside corner, and there's a pretty good chance you'll get him to roll over something.
00:49:27
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
00:49:30
Well, we all know he's not the greatest threat with bad up there.
00:49:33
His numbers certainly aren't that pretty.
00:49:35
But hey, I give him credit.
00:49:36
He's really working account right here.
00:49:40
A little too tall that time three and one.
00:49:42
Now you can bet they love ball four here.
00:49:46
That gives the pitcher on deck an obvious bunch situation to move the runner into scoring position, and they can will be full three to pick back up the middle.
00:50:19
And that's a base hit.
00:50:20
So the pressure is on to open up the Nice a Be right there with picture coming to the plate.
00:50:27
Your job is to get on in front of.
00:50:29
This should be interesting.
00:50:30
Does he get the bunt sign? You play a little Billy ball and pull it back and try and flaky chick lits with third baseman See what happens now.
00:50:45
Walker Buehler and they'll indeed have the pictures squaring around as he puts this one down only place to first.
00:50:51
So the picture does his.
00:50:53
It's a successful sacrifice.
00:50:58
Top of the lineup.
00:50:59
Stepping in Mookie Betts.
00:51:01
She'll look to bring home that time, run from second with base it into the outfield.
00:51:14
Here's the first pitch to him in the dirt here, and no advance.
00:51:20
It's one look like a definite pitchers pitched there on the inside, one and one to third on the 1st 2 a runner in scoring position with two men gun, and that will bring up the third baseman Justin Turner trying to hold the lead. Here's the delivery.
00:52:22
Oh, to here it is in the dirt.
00:52:38
Throw will go to third and he nails him 1/3.
00:52:41
Great throw.
00:52:43
Nothing doing for the Dodgers Here they trail this 11 to nothing.
00:52:56
I want strictly amount taking the ball here.
00:52:59
It will be making its 15th appearance of the year.
00:53:10
Stepping in Manny Machado.
00:53:12
It was a walk in his last trip, ready with the first pitch.
00:53:18
Here it comes.
00:53:22
Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen, lifted in the air to shallow center field.
00:53:45
Bellenger comes on now and he hasn't won down now.
00:53:53
Batting. Wil Myers will.
00:54:01
Here comes the first pitch right hander against right hander, as this is a bowl.
00:54:07
Wanna know a strike? Even the count.
00:54:16
One in one and misses tune.
00:54:26
One swing and a miss two and two.
00:54:39
Now bases your empty one.
00:54:42
Man.
00:54:47
It neither guy willing to give in and the ad battle continue here now the to to lifted down the line and left, and this is gonna wind up a foul ball 2 to 1 more time and finally wins.
00:55:17
The battle is this is swung on and missed for the second.
00:55:24
Digging in and looking for more Brian Dozier.
00:55:26
He's working on one for two games so far.
00:55:30
First pitch of the at bat on its way.
00:55:34
Well, no way found toward the third base dugout, but this will get back into the seats out of play from the wind up 11 pitch high in the air after center field.
00:55:57
Bell injures under it on.
00:56:00
That's the third out, three up, three down for San Diego, but they hold a one.
00:56:06
Nothing lead into the box.
00:56:18
Justin Turner Elite bangs off here in this one run contest.
00:56:31
He's ready.
00:56:32
Here's the first offering shot down the first baseline reached to his backhand, but he can't come up with it.
00:56:41
And the leadoff man's aboard out there in right field.
00:56:53
Wind up.
00:57:00
Going next up is Max Muncy as he takes a cold strike at the knees, its own one.
00:57:06
This is gonna be an interesting at that.
00:57:08
I think he has to be pitching for a strike out here, so we'll see what kind of sequence he uses swinging strike.
00:57:16
And now it's only to pay with first base Open pictures.
00:57:20
Definitely gonna nibble.
00:57:21
Try and see if the hitter expands his own runner on second.
00:57:26
Nobody out.
00:57:31
Fly ball to straightaway right field.
00:57:34
Myers is under it.
00:57:37
That's the first out of the inning.
00:57:45
Next, Cody Ballenger.
00:57:47
Topple Juan was a ground last time Matty, and it looked like a sinker in his last baby that got him roll over.
00:57:55
Kind of similar situation right here.
00:57:58
Similar stuff on the mountain.
00:58:00
Look for them to try and get him to do exactly the same thing is his last.
00:58:03
Maybe he's got a fight to get it elevated.
00:58:06
Just a little bit more.
00:58:08
Here it comes. One.
00:58:10
This is pulled into right.
00:58:12
Myers Is there two down Corey Seager.
00:58:25
He gets with two away as they continue to trail in this close game.
00:58:29
Well, Mathis has been a big hitting on the mountain.
00:58:31
He's had to face the middle of the order, and so far, he's held a day.
00:58:35
Yeah, this feels like the kind of bending will look back on at the end of the game, even if the result of it changes dramatically here.
00:58:49
Set in the pitch? No, he said one a one as he lays off loathe.
00:59:13
We ground her back to the moon.
00:59:16
Rwanda first, and that error won't come back.
00:59:19
To haunt him, after all, is the inning is over, hitting an error in the inning, but they failed to score.
00:59:25
We're through six full.
00:59:27
It's the Padres won and the Dodgers nothing.
00:59:34
Scott Alexander is on the pitch from the bullpen now to start any number seven number ready for another shot Now Francisco Mafia already the beginning of the seventh inning here is this game has had a very brisk pace to it. So far.
01:00:03
Ready to deliver.
01:00:04
Here's the first pitch sinker toe open the A B in there for strike one.
01:00:09
Alexander is adjusting to the new normal.
01:00:12
His MLB now mandates that relievers reach the end of an inning or face three or more batters before being replaced.
01:00:19
For a one time lefty specialist like this, that's a big change.
01:00:23
Barely able to make contact down owing to now, nothing in to count and the pitch.
01:00:42
And here's a slider that runs inside that time, and that will keep him from diving out over the plate, and a good sinker there gets him swinging for the first time.
01:00:59
We've seen some really good pitching from these guys on this one.
01:01:03
Bullpen has looked sharp and, if backed up, a nice effort turned in by the starter.
01:01:06
Thes days.
01:01:08
Pitching has become a full staff effort, and I've been impressed with job these guys have done so far in.
01:01:17
Now.
01:01:18
Joey Lucas E pops him up toward the left side of the infield and he'll put this way for the second out.
01:01:27
There's one leg, ours.
01:01:28
Now he's got a base it tonight.
01:01:30
He's over to with a sacrifice.
01:01:32
To this point, he's ready.
01:01:38
Here's the first offering slow roller left side when he can't pick it up cleanly and they'll have no Playas.
01:01:45
He reaches first base safely again with two outs.
01:01:49
The picture was mentally in the dugout already.
01:01:51
Now he's gotta regroup and find a way to get out of this hard.
01:01:55
Not to feel for the guy runner at first following the error.
01:02:06
And here comes the first baseman, Eric Hosmer.
01:02:10
Yeah, and this is the guy for me.
01:02:11
I think this is the guy in the clubhouse that the guys truly gravitate towards.
01:02:16
The title package of Eric Hosmer's game is really special to out with a man at first swing and a miss, and he's in the holo to now, so back to back sliders for strikes Does he come back with yet another.
01:02:37
A normal good plan to throw three consecutive sliders and grow.
01:02:40
This guy's slider is so good, I think he might throw it again.
01:02:44
Rwanda.
01:02:45
Muncie gets him, and with that bill in the inning, leave one.
01:02:50
But they're up one to nothing.
01:03:03
Striding in, Kiki Hernandez hit in two tries for him so far, first offering on its way down the third base line.
01:03:26
But a foul ball here.
01:03:28
01 here, come and that's in there is well known to man.
01:03:39
This guy's really picks well, so far, attacking the strike zone, and he's really kept these hitters off balance off speed, pitch in the dirt because he takes it for a bowl.
01:03:55
Some action out of the bullpen, couple of right handers starting to loosen up.
01:04:06
Here he comes on a ball into strength.
01:04:10
Look like a sinker there, get a little below the knee.
01:04:15
Expect a challenge right here.
01:04:16
does not want to run account for slapped hard the opposite way.
01:04:27
The outfield grass for innovation on this will bang up against the wall, and he's able to muscle its way up.
01:04:34
The second is, you reach here with a two basic finally, a little something for them to get excited about.
01:04:41
A rally can begin with a single swing of the baton.
01:04:43
This might be their chance right here.
01:04:45
They struggled to produce a lot of runs.
01:04:48
There is a second base, a shot to the outfield scores and who knows what kind of role they could get on.
01:04:53
Gotta take it one good at that at a time.
01:04:58
The skipper of the Padres is up out of the dugout on his way to the mound, and we're going to see a pitching changes that's gonna do it for his starter here tonight.
01:05:07
So is he departs? He can't lose this ballgame, but he is responsible for the runner at second meeting.
01:05:13
It'd be a no decision if that run comes across the score.
01:05:18
So they go to the bullpen now and it will be the left hander here to face the upcoming left handed batter at the plate Gavin Lux as the first played for a ball one or two for two fastball at 96 on the radar gun, and it's one in one from the script.
01:06:12
Lofted in the air out toward right center, Myers moves to his right and put this one away in the alley for out number one next for the Dodgers Smith strikeout victim his first trip and then collected a base hit his last time around reading.
01:06:31
Now okay, one or no delivery clearly off with this timing on that in a swinging strike, it's not easy to get your barrel toe pitch that that could be an effective location as long as he keeps it above the letters.
01:07:07
Looks like they're pinching a bit Here.
01:07:09
It's 31 when you're playing close games like this.
01:07:13
Base runners mean everything so it can ill afford to start giving away free passes.
01:07:18
Count full three balls and two strikes late on the fastball, but he's able to spoil that one off, and you'll get another chance.
01:07:33
Ground ball right side.
01:07:35
Field it cleanly by Osmond.
01:07:37
Only playoff picture covering and the runner will advance to third a J.
01:07:44
Come on to pinch hit here in a big spot.
01:08:02
Here's a slider, nowhere close, and it's one one ball.
01:08:14
No strike hit hard to the right foul slider gets called in the bottom.
01:08:29
Part of that's three straight sliders in a row.
01:08:32
I'd be shocked.
01:08:34
I would be shocked if he went to that.
01:08:35
Well, I'd be looking and he lays off pitch outside as they grow, even at 22 in the year to right field after it is mired.
01:08:49
Get there.
01:08:50
So the inning will continue in its second safely, as this game is tied late with a run scoring away from the play.
01:09:01
You know, hero in today's game, it's not easy scoring in the late inning so that r B I base it tied things up that comes at a really good time.
01:09:09
Yeah, it's not easy.
01:09:10
They got 11 guys in the booth, seven sinking.
01:09:17
That is unbelievable.
01:09:18
He's able to get that now, so that will bring in Mookie Betts.
01:09:22
Been a rough go of things with plate forme so far, but his guys were looking for him to change that right here.
01:09:27
Yeah, nothing better than coming through for the boys in a tight game at, especially when you're kind of due to do something productive.
01:09:40
He's ready. Years.
01:09:49
Go ahead, runs in scoring position here with two down.
01:09:56
Run this one in on him and he can't connect.
01:09:58
So he finds himself down one and two.
01:10:00
Now he just doesn't look comfortable in a box to me.
01:10:03
Tonight, he's been off balance with swings and that one completely kind of even count two balls and two strikes to here It is line drive, and that may be enough to break our time.
01:10:20
That's down for extra bases that'll hit off the wall in left center because he arrives at second without a play as a run is also win, and with it they take the lead before those have to feel really good deal.
01:10:35
You get late gaming, come up with a big R B.
01:10:38
I base it right here to give your team believe no one remembers that ground ball with eyes.
01:10:43
Second inning.
01:10:44
You want to show up when the game is on the line? Can you quiet your emotions down? Take the crowd out of it and slow yourself down enough to come through? And that's exactly what he did.
01:11:08
Ready with the first pitch.
01:11:09
Here it comes, gets the fastball by him here.
01:11:22
He's in control 02 to mid nineties fastballs right there that he doesn't seem to think he can catch up to.
01:11:29
I wouldn't be shocked if he came right at him again with another good one shooting for that lower inside corner.
01:11:38
But he missed with it one and two and the sliders in the dirt as he lays off it for a ball classic back foot slider right there with two strikes, usually gets a ton of swing and misses. Nice.
01:11:56
Lay off right there.
01:11:57
Fight for another pitch.
01:11:59
Two out here in a runner at second.
01:12:04
Never attempted to swing it that ball down low.
01:12:07
It's ball three for the guy on the mound.
01:12:09
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
01:12:12
He's throwing a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment.
01:12:24
Here's the payoff pitch fly ball out toward left center field.
01:12:31
Lagarde would look this one in in that ends the inning, so it's two runs on three hits, no errors in a runner left on.
01:12:40
We'll look ahead to any number eight.
01:12:41
Now Dodgers lead it 2 to 1 via been summoned from the bullpen is he'll do so to start the number.
01:13:02
Digging in Tommy Pham.
01:13:04
It was a walk in his last trip.
01:13:16
First delivery to him on the way.
01:13:39
Great job changing speeds there.
01:13:41
It's going to action in the bullpen as their closer starts to get loose.
01:14:00
Wall in two strikes now Ball and two strikes.
01:14:11
Here's the pitch.
01:14:12
Swung and missed.
01:14:13
He didn't even come close to contact on a ball way out of the zone. One out.
01:14:18
People always talk about how important getting leadoff men on base is, and it's true.
01:14:23
So in the eighth inning of a one run game, that's a really nice job attacking hitter, sending him into the box.
01:14:36
Now Fernando Chatty's Jr look a first pitch fastball for Ball one.
01:14:41
He's hit.
01:14:42
Listen, is to add bad.
01:14:43
So far, 10 is offered at it.
01:14:56
Missed for the first strike.
01:14:59
When I broke into the league, not many guys were throwing that elevated fastball With that much velocity on it.
01:15:04
The game has changed.
01:15:11
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike 21 home grounded down the third base line on first in there.
01:15:32
That was no doubles defense in action right there, and it paid off big time.
01:15:37
That ball was scored, but the third baseman was guarding the line more than usual to prevent an extra base hit, and it ended up being pretty much right at him.
01:15:46
That's good stuff.
01:15:49
Stepping in and ready for another shot.
01:15:51
Manny Machado.
01:15:52
It was a fly out for him in his last trip.
01:16:17
Here comes the first pitch pitcher's duel continues here.
01:16:25
2 to 1 Scores would play the eight hard hit to first.
01:16:32
Only has some trouble with it.
01:16:34
Throw in time on the side.
01:16:39
Padres down in order.
01:16:40
Our score remains to one.
01:16:52
Matt Strong will come on in.
01:16:54
Relief.
01:16:55
Now is he'll make his 10th appearance of the season.
01:16:58
Matt riding in once again, Max once he blew out his last at bat, outfield shaded toward right center.
01:17:22
Here's the first pitch fastball just inside.
01:17:38
Now 10 well, this is the matchup they wanted bringing in their reliever.
01:17:46
But falling behind two and O doesn't exactly help the situation very much into the corner and slicing foul.
01:18:02
He wants that changeup back right there.
01:18:05
Great arm action on that changeup hitter was just a smidge out front, maybe trying to back him up a bit there with the fastball.
01:18:13
Well, that's all three.
01:18:14
And the Dodgers right now would love to start this inning off with a walk anyway to get this leadoff guy on.
01:18:21
Found off that way Now with three and two pit and it's fouled away.
01:18:40
I smoked but right into the ship, and that's a base.
01:18:44
It so a chance for some important insurance here to kick off the bottom of the eighth.
01:18:48
May some guys look out there, Dan, They don't care.
01:18:50
They can execute ball the other way.
01:18:52
It's got that easy.
01:18:53
They're gonna hit it as hard as they can right into it and let the chips fall where they may. You know it's hard.
01:18:59
Deborah, when you come up all the way through high school Italy college ball in the minor leagues, Houston pulling the ball.
01:19:05
That's the type of hitter you are.
01:19:06
Some of these hitters are gonna have to try to make some changes with these exaggerated shifts out in front of its strike, one over to from him.
01:19:14
So far, in this one.
01:19:30
Here's one that Mrs Hyatte's one in one action now in the Padre bullpen as it looks like a right handers getting loose out there.
01:19:47
11 is taken for ball, too.
01:19:59
Skied in the air to straightaway left.
01:20:05
Family will settle under it to make the play for the first out is the runner will have to head back to first.
01:20:12
Ready for another chance.
01:20:13
Corey Seager ground out victim last time up.
01:20:17
Yet Maddie experiences picture to try and get the same result.
01:20:20
That's his last at bat right hair.
01:20:21
Double play is in order.
01:20:23
Anything on the ground way this defense is.
01:20:26
They could certainly role to helping fires me up more than watching and take a picture.
01:20:33
Gives pitches away batters able to keep his hands inside.
01:20:37
Not trying too much force me to sing.
01:20:49
So now to the plate.
01:20:50
PK demand is high and deep out to left field, and that ball gets down out here the wall and should be extra bases on.
01:20:59
They will hold that runner over third as you move up only 90 feet, but the bases are loaded with away.
01:21:07
Nice piece of hitting right there.
01:21:08
Look like the guy on Second had to respect.
01:21:10
It frees a little bit.
01:21:12
They had to freeze their for a second to make sure that line drive gets down, but eventually does get the third base.
01:21:19
Now Gavin Lux, as he will take a fastball in there at the knees for strike one off the outside.
01:21:37
That time is the breaking ball.
01:21:38
Can't catch the zone.
01:21:53
11 takes a pass.
01:21:55
And, Mrs, that's strike two.
01:21:58
That's just a great mix of pitches right there.
01:22:00
And that's what this guy's gonna do if he's gonna keep this team off.
01:22:06
Fouled away, bases loaded with only one out.
01:22:17
And he found this one off, and this is swung on and missed a huge out there as the basis will stay loaded with two away.
01:22:34
Yes, they say, there's a hole in pursuing in that location.
01:22:37
So a good job they're exploiting that that could be really hard for some guys to overcome when teams start figuring out what locations you just can't handle at the plate.
01:22:52
Now, Will Smith, first pitch to him, runs a bit inside for Ball one.
01:22:57
He's working on a one for three thus far on a great pitch.
01:23:13
They're caught in reaching its one and one.
01:23:16
Wow! Great pitch right there. Right.
01:23:18
Changing speeds.
01:23:19
How about that straight changeup about that swing? Howdy.
01:23:22
If you're waving at Make Slider is in there.
01:23:25
Now it's one and two.
01:23:27
Hey, this is a huge pitch right here.
01:23:29
It would be demoralizing to watch this inning slip away from scratch.
01:23:36
12 strikes him out.
01:23:39
So a missed opportunity at the plate is he strands.
01:23:42
Three runners in the side is retired back to back strikeouts.
01:23:45
Keep him out of danger.
01:23:47
Maurin.
01:23:48
A moment on this Friday night You're watching MLB Network now the skippers on his way out toward the home plate area.
01:23:58
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here lately.
01:24:06
Jansen comes on from the pen hoping to finish this one off here in the top of the ninth.
01:24:11
Now number? Yeah, leading off the inning.
01:24:21
Wil Myers, look to get something going here and even this game up.
01:24:25
Not an easy thing to do to try to come back and tie game or take the lead off a guy like this.
01:24:31
One of the game's elite closer.
01:24:33
Here we go within a number nine is the first pitch misses for Ball one swinging a ground ball to third.
01:25:02
Turner has it on the on balance Throw gets a nice play for the out.
01:25:07
That was a no doubles defense in action right there, and it paid off big time.
01:25:12
That ball was scored, but the third baseman was guarding the line more than usual to prevent an extra base hit, and it ended up being pretty much right at him. That's good stuff.
01:25:30
First delivery to him on the way.
01:25:33
Brian Dozier comes on with one way as he looks at a ball.
01:25:36
It's one of and think about it in Game one of this series, they've already had to go deep into their bullpen.
01:25:43
This could affect them for the rest of the weekend.
01:25:45
If they don't get really good starting pitching.
01:25:56
Does your waiting on the 10 and he won't bite it.
01:26:00
That one, either. It's too.
01:26:09
Here comes nearly got the inside of the ball.
01:26:15
Francisco Mahia waits on deck, ready with 30 pitch and he lays off ball four.
01:26:30
So now the potential time run here is aboard late in the game, and that whole of that.
01:26:35
I feel like you really didn't want to challenge him.
01:26:38
And I'm really surprised by that, because I think this is a guy in the bottom 30 order.
01:26:43
You have to go right after digging in now Francisco Mafia.
01:26:48
They'll be looking for something that could drive into the gap and drive home that time run from first come set.
01:26:57
Here's the nothing in nothing.
01:27:00
That's a pitch he'd like to have back.
01:27:02
You're not gonna see very many pitches like that from a picture of this warning.
01:27:06
I'm sure he'd like to have that one back to take a swing at it.
01:27:11
Runner at first year, one man lifted into the air out toward center field.
01:27:24
Bellenger.
01:27:25
We'll have plenty of room as he makes the catch, and there's a big out number.
01:27:30
Two.
01:27:31
Greg Garcia will be called upon here to hit with the game on the line.
01:27:47
One comes in with that average down in the two forties, still without a home run.
01:27:53
Six R B countdown with ball in the strike in on the hands.
01:28:19
It's two balls and a strike found on a round of over 39,000 on their feet and another foul ball.
01:28:53
San Diego down to their final strike.
01:28:56
You die layoff slider there and it works it to full three in two years.
01:29:00
Good spot for an R B.
01:29:02
I put the ball in play with the runner in motion.
01:29:04
He could score all the way from first a struck him out for out number three.
01:29:13
So that'll wrap things up.
01:29:15
Here is a possible tying run.
01:29:17
Stranded occurred, folks.
01:29:19
That's what Kenley Jansen does.
01:29:21
Hey, enters the game.
01:29:22
The hopes of the other team they usually just leave slammed the door again right here.
01:29:27
Close one tonight to one.
01:29:29
The final score.
01:29:30
Dodgers jumped ahead in the seventh inning and never gave the lead back.
01:29:34
Scott Alexander claims to win out of the pen. His first.
01:29:38
Kenley Jansen closes the door for the save his 14.
01:29:43
So that's a wrap for us here tonight for my partners in Booth, Mark Rosen, Van Fleet, Zack and Heidi walking on the field.
01:29:49
This is Matt Vasgersian.
01:29:50
You've been watching MLB Network.
