you, you cried MLB.
The show's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air today.
We've got a good matchup in storm between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Get ready for Dodger baseball.
Next on the show.
David Price with pitching in Game three of the Syrian What's your take on Dan? Hey, one of the keys to this guy is throwing strikes.
He's not a big strikeout picture.
Only averages less than seven strikeouts per nine innings.
Fits so he's more of a pitch to contact guy and you'll know, appease on early.
He needs to get quick outs early in counts.
Here's one Lagarde way are ready for some daytime baseball.
Here comes the first pitch we're going under way now in the Sunday finale is the game's first pitch is taken for Bull one 1 11 The one home I and this is low ball, 2 to 1, and the pitch should be a picture perfect afternoon for baseball.
78 degrees at first pitch.
Here's the pitch on two and two looked to me like he tried to do way too much on that to two pitch.
You don't have to come into the zone on that count.
But a pitch that far outside isn't gonna tempt anyone to sweat.
Something has to give.
Here's the payoff pitch and Mrs Ball four.
So a good battle to begin the ballgame today.
But the leadoff man will reach first anyway and don't forget, lost his last time out, so he wants to get off on the right foot here.
The last thing he wanted was to walk the leadoff man.
So here's Wil Myers.
Lifetime versus David Price is one for five ready to deliver.
Here's the first pitch cutter runs outside ball one, and there are the umpires assigned to this one.
Balls and strikes belong to Mr Jerry Hillsdale.
Dear Oh, Jerry Hillsdale might be one of the more salad every day umpires in the league right now.
Yeah, I think he's one of the best in the business.
Stand high, praise all around.
You go into both meetings with the managers, and what did they do? They rave about Jerry Hillsdale swing and a miss out in front of a changeup.
That's an impressive pitch right there.
If you're willing to throw a change up on to know that tells me that's a pitch you feel really confident with.
Here's a fly ball, well hit felons.
You're looking up outta here into the visitors bullpen.
Two run home run off the battle.
Wil Myers home run number five on the year as the Padres have taken a two to nothing leave.
Wow, talk about a guy getting hot right? It's a bomb hit one yesterday.
Usually, when he gets hot, he starts to hit them in Bunches.
And this could be the beginning of a very, very good hot streak into the box.
Now, Tommy Pham, As you can tell, the easily front of splits, he's really struggled away from their home ballpark.
Now the first pitch here from Price.
No outs, Nobody on right side.
He'll get to this one deep in the hole.
Throw in time at first.
A nice play in short, right for the first out in now Fernando Status Junior.
And he's looking to turn things around, ice cold at the plate in recent action, the first pitch of the at bat on its way.
I Yes, we went out 11 home line to the right side, but that's a foul ball here now the to to high in the air out to center field.
Peterson is there now, and he has it to gone.
Here's Manny Machado now.
He's carrying a batting average of just over 300 so clearly he's been a productive player with a bat in his hands so far.
Here's the first offering.
Fooled him with that.
One is he's way out in front.
Machado is usually more of a threat when facing left handers like this.
The right handers tend to give him a bit more trouble, so we'll see if that trend continues all in a strike.
He's a veteran out on that mound.
He understands he has to establish that inside.
Open up the outer half of the plate, bases your empty here with two men out, change things up on him and got him to swing through it.
One and two now, and he won't go after the cut. Fastball.
Looks like this guy's afraid to throw the ball in the strike zone.
Gave up that home run earlier in the inning.
Needs to get back to being aggressive.
Here's another two to swing and a drive sent out toward the gap.
Back goes Peterson, still ranging back, and that one is gone on a two strike count with two away in the inning.
It's a solo home run off the bat of Manny Machado, home run number nine on the year, and the Friars have moved out in front three to nothing.
Not the way I like to start a game right first, and you come in, you give up two home runs, we'll see if he can regroup right here.
It's not easy sometimes.
Come back from that.
Here's Brian Dodger now, as he puts it on the ground 1/3.
Field it cleanly.
Throw on the first gets him in.
The side is retired.
So two home runs in the inning lead of three runs on the scoreboard on now to the bottom of ending number one.
Padres lead it three to nothing.
Zach Davies, a Washington born right hander, gets the starting assignment.
Then please act.
What's the word on him? Every team needs a picture like this one.
Here is numbers aren't gonna blow you away. Career e.
R. A. Just under four.
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.
He'll be fun to watch this one here today, Dr.
So stepping in events, it lead things off here in the bottom half of the first.
Now here it comes, down the third base line.
This gets foul its own one.
Siri's by pulling one out here today.
Then they were able to shower that first loss off in the first game of the series and had a nice bounce back game yesterday.
Let's see if they could steal a series right here.
Now the 21 it on the ground, out to short.
He's right there, and there's one down now.
So the base is your empty with one man gun, and digging in the plate will be Justin Turner.
First pitch of the at bat, hard hit toward the hole and just past his outstretched glove in left, the base hit.
Next up is Max Muncy Aziz.
The first pitch to him is in there for a called strike one.
He'll start this 1 to 69 11 home runs and 22 R B I No.
11 delivery big swing and a miss at the fastball, and he's behind in the count of 12 Turner stands at first with one out, and this one's in the dirt with job.
There is The count goes to one and two open to send him packing pitch on its way swing and a miss on the change up in their two gone.
Well, there's great equalized the change of El combo.
Listen about it.
Keep that pitch in your back pocket and pulled out when you need it like he did right there.
Usually leaders, they don't stand a chance.
So here's Cody Bellenger and she'll take a change up here for Strike one in there and he's ahead 02 now.
Well, this is one of those a bee's you like to hit the rewind button on.
Put himself in a tough spot now, hitting with two strikes, and he misses their one and two.
I love a well executed changeup, especially one down in the zone, the only problem thrown in that situation.
You leave that belt, I miss your spot, just a hair, and you could have some problems And that's going to be high two and two now.
Okay, if you're gonna throw a pitch like that, this guy, that's right where you want to miss any lower and he'll probably make you pay for it.
Swing and a drive sent out toward the Gap.
Myers going back still going back, and that one is gone on a two strike count with two away in the inning, Cody Ballenger puts a pair on the board with that homer number 10 for him on the year and the Dodgers your back within a run and 3 to 2.
Now that's the price you pay right there.
When you try and sneak a fastball past this guy power hitter and every power hitter in the league knows you've got to start with numeral uno Number one man, you got to get on the heater and adjust to everything else.
Did just hear Joc Pederson and you can see his time splits there has not fared very well in front of the home crowd, first offering on its way.
Bouncers left side throw in time and the side is retired.
Sights and sounds of a day at the ballpark.
My more to come on the show Sunday Baseball after this coming to the plate.
Now Josh Naylor, John first pitch on its way, who started him with change, and it's nothing in one wind up and the old one off the plate for one.
Keeping it down here is it's 21 and two going good.
Cutting action to that pitch is that's the first out of the inning.
Looked to me like he had the right idea with swing on that pitch, and he just didn't get them back through the zone in time.
Let it get deep.
May be trying to take it the other way, but it got too deep.
It was by him by the time his barrel could get in the correct position in now Francisco Medea as the first pitch to him.
A changeup can't find the zone.
It's Bull one, and he's a guy looking toe break out in a big way.
Hasn't been getting the results.
He or his club have been hoping for that.
Even sit up one on one and now a curveball.
That's Lohan in the dirt.
It's two on one.
It's a two and two counts of the Padres catcher, and it's fouled away last two pitches back to back off speed.
Then he's laid on the fastball.
He could pretty much do anything he wants right here on the mountain.
Here on two on two and he runs it full.
Three balls and two strikes, and he misses here for Ball four.
Already to walk.
Surrendered in his first couple of innings of work.
Well, this guy's been prone to giving up walks in Bunches, and that's already too.
Walks here in the early going.
We'll see if this continues to be an issue for him as this start continues at the plate.
He could be bunting here in order to stay out of the double play, ready to deliver.
Here's the first pitch now a bunt attempt.
He gets this one down, but this is foul for the first strength showing bunt, but he winds up taking ball.
One great decision there to pull back step number one and getting a sacrifice bunt down.
Make sure you bunt a pitch that you can handle.
Got it back in time there, and it's two on one Yeah, good job there to pull that bunt back.
Now that he's ahead on account, we'll see if he gets that bunt sign again.
Now the 21 picks and now a bunch attempt here is it gets this one down.
Only played to the picture covering, and the runner moves into second on the plane.
But there's one rigorous.
Now he's got a base hit tonight, no official at bat for him, but he has scored a run in.
This one becomes said.
Here's the nothing in nothing.
Pitch stung into the gap in right center for what should be extra bases.
What that'll be off the wall in right center in its second safely as also on the playoff run comes across to score well.
We've already had some hard hit balls in the 1st 2 innings here on Here's another absolutely jumped off his back and into the outfield.
Bring another run home here in the early going.
Take a look at a strike right down the middle, its own one from the belt kicks and deals A lot of movement.
That time, it's going to a down 02 He better be weary of this guy's nasty changeup.
He has the ability got him looking on.
That will do it.
The inning is over.
Padres pick up a run on the r B.
I double on the bottom of any number two, and the Friars have doubled up.
They needed four to next at the plate will be Corey Seager is coming off a three performance in the loss last night.
First hearing on its way.
10 home I Davies has become known as a guy that's tough to take deep.
So many starting pitchers find themselves snake bitten by the gofer ball, but he really limits that down the third base line, but a foul ball one into the count.
Now, two balls and two strikes to Cory Seager.
High fly ball after straightaway center under it, Lagarde's and there is one away settling in now.
Two hits in eight tries for the Syrians.
First pitch of the at bat, and this is just off the outside corner for a ball.
Wanna know that's a base hit into center field? Last pitch was a fastball tries to double up with the same piece of trees, and it gets turned around a nice piece of hit now Will Smith, and he is frozen on a good curveball that started.
It is hip strike one comes in with that average down in the two forties, five homers and 16 R B I's wave that missed, and he's behind a 12 open.
A send him packing pitch on its way changes up on him, advancing on a dirt for revolt.
Runners on first with one down, able to protect the plate with two strikes and you'll see another one.
Here it comes again, 12 No offer of the curve that time, and it's not it up to and to.
So you'd love for him to offer at that one.
But the execution was flawless.
Nice curveball that starts in the zone and breaks just out.
Just a great take by the matter.
Another trying to to chop now too short.
Can they get to? He's got it.
Does your they won't get, too.
He beats the related first.
So here's the Dodgers pitcher Price.
Here's the first offering now a swing and gets him to pop it up.
Left fielder coming on, but this will land untouched and he lays off for ball, one pulled toward right center field, and Dozer will put this one away to retire the sign.
So no runs here on a base hit, no errors and one man left aboard.
It's the Padres four and the Dodgers to top of the third set to get underway now in the box.
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
Let's not sugarcoat it.
He's at a rough couple innings.
He's gonna have to find a way, whether it be mechanically or mentally, to be able to stay in this game and his wind up.
Here comes the 10 and this is why he's struggling right here.
He's not able to pound the strike zone early in the count.
These guys are finding themselves in serious count leverage situations.
Good hitters are gonna miss outside.
No, now, just a little bit off to start the third.
Now that's three straight balls.
Here it comes on three.
No, and he lays off their ball. Four.
So the leadoff man is on here to be getting number three, and that's what you want from your leadoff hitter shows some great patients and disciplined making the picture labor to start the game result is a leadoff walk and a chance to make some early noise, and it will be the cleanup spot for the Padres.
Fernando Taxis Jr so far over one with a fly out.
Here comes the first pitch too low.
Wanna know? You can really tell about how effective this guy's gonna be when guys are swinging at that change of so far in this one, they've been really smart to let it go.
Third inning here already.
Four to our score.
There's a fastball well off the plate inside.
He's certainly searching out there on the mound.
Five straight balls in a row.
You have to take a strike as a hitter right here.
Look first by Price, and he's back in standing and that catches the outside corner.
It's two on one Padres shortstop ahead with three ball, one strike count.
This situation right here reminds me, is sitting on the bench talking to John Small, Hall of Famer.
He would always say, even though the situation look bad, a picture is one pitch away from getting himself out of a tough game, swung on and hammered.
No doubt about this one.
Watch it flying on and off the batter's eye for, Ah, home run and impressive shot dead center field.
So it's a two run shot to right center, fourth home run for him on the season as they opened it up to 62.
Now Wow, nothing more demoralizing than giving a three home runs in the 1st 3 innings of a game.
There's having a guy's number, and then there's absolutely owning him.
This could be the ladder, and in steps Manny Machado.
He takes a called strike at the knees, its own one.
He launched one over the wall back in the opening frame.
Machado, now on 11 off the plate, one bowl, one strength on him off stride.
That time, and it's one and two made him look silly with that one bases empty here with nobody out.
12 is a breaking ball.
They can't find the zone, and it's even a two.
He might have to look for a different way to put this guy away on 22 He's already seen the curveball.
A couple of times so he might be looking for Takes this the other way, too right, and that's in for a base.
It hiss second in his many trips to the plate when a pitching coach goes to the mound this early, is probably just looking to reset the pictures mindset.
Get him to forget about the negative.
Give him something positive to focus on.
We'll see if he responds.
Brian Dozier at the plate.
Look a fastball too high for Ball one.
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
So it goes to to know now.
Now the Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen.
Loud contact there.
But it's well, foul now.
The 21 pitch fly ball out straight away, right.
Bellenger will settle under it to make the plane for the first out Is the runner will have to head back to first next to the plate for the Padres.
Josh Naylor, here looking to bounce back after striking out his last time up first pitch on its way.
Not his best effort that time.
Strike one were only in the third inning and his pitch count is above 60.
That's not being to official with your pitches.
If you get a guy flailing at a pitch like that here to go out there, throw that same pitch until he proves he could lay off of it.
Hey, he threw that pitch with a purpose to get a double play.
So let it go by.
The was a hitter home.
It swung on and missed the throw, and a good decision to throw is he is toasted second.
Could have been a hit run attempt.
They're trying to have to make contact with those to work out.
He didn't and his teammate was hung out to dry and a fastball swung on and missed.
On the side is retired.
Padres get a couple of runs in the inning on the two run home run.
It's the Padres six and the Dodgers to welcome back as the Dodgers prepare for their third turn batting in this one.
And fans of the boys and blue have been treated to quite a bit of production from this line up so far this year.
Coming into the day, they're up near the top of the league home run production.
So it's certainly safe to say they're fun. Bunch to watch.
When asked about their success with the long ball, one player told me, Yeah, home runs are fun and they can change the whole game.
So when we get a pitch, weaken, do damage on you Better believe we're looking Launch back to All right, Thanks, Heidi.
Back to the top of the order now.
And that will bring up Mookie Betts.
Lots of baseball left, and this one is were still early on.
But you don't want to fall too far behind.
They're already down by a bundle and one of the things you want your leadoff guy to get on and set the table for the big boys to start driving in.
Some rooms lifted down the line and left.
Pham moves over near the line as he puts it away for the first out of the inning.
So with one away now, let's quickly give you look in the standings in the National League West, entering play today as you see where these two teams sit in relation to one another, so one away here with bases empty, and that will bring up the third baseman, Justin Turner.
Here's the first offering well down the left field line, but back into the crowd.
Here comes the on one thing.
This is high in the air, out toward left center.
Lagares is under it.
There are two down now.
Bases are empty here with two gone that will bring up the left handed hitter Max Muncy, outfield shaded toward right center.
Here's the first pitch I haven't played perfectly.
Is it's hit on the ground.
Does your fields it cleanly, this one first in time and that ends the inning.
123 Go to Dodgers still trail here in 62 start of the fourth upcoming.
But first Heidi Watney standing by with a report.
Matt I talked with San Diego's manager during the inning break about the Padres offensive production to this point and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
He said they've done a nice job of keeping their swings inside the strike zone and not chasing after pitches.
They can't do much with the numbers.
Say their chase rate in this game is under 25%.
And with a bunch of runs on the board right now, that could be a big reason why.
Okay, thank you, Heidi.
No ending set to get underway.
So coming to the plate, Francisco Mahia.
He reached on a walk in his last time up and later came around to score, will start the inning with a pitch that Mrs off the plate, It's Bull one and here's his fastball for a cold Strike one and he's hitting and even 90 on the gun count is one and two now.
This is on the ground over to first.
Take it to the bag himself for the out opportunity.
Now take a look into some of the future plans for the Dodgers, as our road to the show reports spotlights a couple of guys that have been playing very well in recent minor league action.
Stepping in now, Zach Davies.
We'll take a look at a pitch to low.
He did his job and laid down the successful sac bunt in his first appearance, sneaks a fastball by Emmott.
It's one on one and the Padres pitcher behind with a one and two counts.
And that last pitch from Price was number 73 in the ballgame.
Just off the outside that time laid off for a ball.
Six runs, five hits, no errors in the ball game for the Padres and that is swung on and missed.
He's down on strikes, and the 1st 2 are retired here to begin.
Inning number four.
Anytime a picture locates a fastball on the inside corner, it's going to be a top pitch to hit.
That one was spot on, and he had no answer for at the plate.
One rigorous watch one miss up in a way for a ball, one or no.
He doubled his last time through Wythe 10 pitch, and this is a fastball that's right on the black but ruled a ball that's to know now down low, and the plot thickens. Here.
Well, Myers would be next if they keep this Jenning alive.
Two out, nobody on.
And this has taken low for Ball four, and they'll have themselves a two out base runner here, after all, really digging in once again.
He was sent packing on strikes in his last trip in today's game.
Certainly don't get completely reprimanded for too many strikeouts, but no one likes to go down looking.
Expect him to be a little bit more aggressive, dishes say.
It's been a little bit of a rough outing for this guy and this one so far, and one thing you could look at it if you want to get really picky.
Less than 60% of his first pitches have been for strikes.
Six runs, five hits, no errors in the ball game for the Padres, one and two counts of Wil Myers.
I wonder if that called not going his way right there has anything to do with walking.
The last guy we all the one Pires don't give you much on the corners if you're not throwing strikes consistently.
12 timing just to tick off. There is this one.
Fouled off to the right 12 Hit in the air down the right field line, and that is off the wall.
But in foul territory foul ball.
Will somebody sitting off speed right here on Lee Way.
He was laid on that heater is he was expecting another changing swing.
And there it goes.
He got all of this one and out of here and I mean by plenty that ball was crushed.
So a two run shot to left center, his second home run of the game as it's now a six run ball game.
Well, as a team, they've gone yard four times and this guy's accounted for half of them.
Memo to all pictures the rest of the game.
If this guy comes to the plate, you might want to pitch around him.
Now here's the Dodgers skipper up out of the dugout on his way to the mound, and that's going to be all this afternoon for David Price, so will make his way to the dugout.
Here is, they'll turn things over to the bullpen from here on out.
Jimmy Nelson answers the call from the men here in the fourth, as they didn't get the outing they were hoping for from your starter.
Oh, into the box.
Now Tommy family.
We'll take a look at a high strike that time.
In one, it was a walk in his last trip pulled him with that one is his way out in front, like Fastball got away from him.
Their faces were empty here with two men out and a good fastball swung on and missed for strike.
Three in the inning is over.
Padres get a couple of runs in the inning on the two run home run bottom of the fourth.
Coming up, It's the Padres eight and the Dodgers to Cody Ballenger at the plate.
Now he starts the ending and band.
They're down, six in the airlift going.
So what do they need to do to claw back into this story? Well, first of all, start to get some base runners.
It's hard to be patient when you're down by six, but base runners are the key to getting back into this infield in the over shift Here.
Now the pitch wind up and the old one now a fastball off the plate away ball in a strike.
That's not a bad picks right there.
That two seamer moving away from a left handed hitter, didn't get the strike, but I'd like the idea behind the pitch from the wind up the 11 pitch.
There's a swing and, ah, high deep drive headed for the right field corner, nearly a big fly to start the inning instead of foul ball fastball swung on and missed for the first out.
That's a pretty unique pit sequence.
Guys, usually pitching is all about mixing pitches and location, but he threw that all out the window to get that strikeout.
He offered the same pitch three times in a row, so I guess he sort of used that reverse psychology out. Think his opponent.
So next to battle be the left handed hitting John Peterson? Yes, he'll take a look. A ball one.
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
One ball, one strike The count faces your empty one.
Man out, fouled away.
12 is laid off for ball, too.
I had to sit back on the change up, and he did a good job to get the bat on that one, and this will miss down low in the dirt, so it's working full now, with three and two, Corey Seager will be next, bouncing to the left side.
Throw on the first will get him scoring 53 On the put out, though, it looked more like a 6 to 3 ground ball.
Nevertheless, there are two.
Here's Corey Seager first pitch of the at bat on its way.
Hot shot on the ground is short.
Get uneasily in the side is retired.
Dodgers down in order.
Still eight to do so.
Here's the cleanup hitter.
Fernando T's Jr comes in one for two with that home run he hit earlier.
Last at bat amenity.
We heard this guy's a good fastball.
Later, he got a fastball, didn't miss it.
We'll see if they pitched him a little bit differently this time and mix it's of off speed pitches.
Get out towards second on.
This will find its way into center field for a leadoff single.
There's a hard hit groundball pitcher not able to get a glove on it.
Hard single up the middle.
Watch your lips right there.
Dance said that back right where it came from.
Digging in now for San Diego.
He singled his last time ready to deliver.
Here's the first pitch.
Great job by the picture right there, changing I levels.
We all know he's a sinker ball pitcher, but if he could throw some four seamers up in his own like that, it could work for him.
And it's quickly owing to nothing in to count, and the picks grounded up the first base line.
Here comes another 02 one ball, and he gets him to pop it up on the right side of the infield.
Lux is under it, one away, so a runner at first with one man gone, and that will bring up the power hitting second baseman Brian Dozier, he said.
Here it comes from about the pitch in the dirt here.
Keeping it close is the can't goes to one and one from the stretch.
Take their on the sinker well off the outside, grounded back up the middle to second for one throat a month.
See to finish the double play that with tires sign.
Nothing doing there for the fryer.
They lead it 8 to 2.
Welcome back to Dodger Stadium.
Let's send it down to the field and Heidi Watney, Matt.
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts the Dodgers skipper about his lineups performance so far.
And one thing he stressed to me is the need for them to have more competitive at bats the rest of the game.
He told me he can't recall many times where they've been able to get to a full count today.
And while that's not always a necessity for success, they clearly had their struggles today, especially when it comes to making things difficult on the opposing pitches.
All right, Heidi, thank you.
Go blank gap in Lux starting things out in the home, half of any number five first pitch on its way now a good pitch around the knees.
But it doesn't quite catch the bottom of the zone inside, and he falls behind the hitter now to a No.
And oh, now if I'm in the box right now, I'm coming unglued.
He is going to throw something over the heart of the plate.
30 and that Mrs.
Ball four, now leadoff walk to get the home half of the fifth underway.
Well, that is definitely not the way to start it.
Inning One thing to give up a walk, but to do it on four pitches is pretty alarming.
He looks a little thrown off right now, digging in Will Smith, reached by way of a fielder's choice, his first time around from the stretch, belted high in the air out, a loud looking up is the left fielder track to the wall gone into the home bullpen for a home run.
It's a two run shot straightaway left sixth home run on the season.
For him, a zit is now 18 to 4 ballgame.
Many mistakes this guy needs to really find with this location, you know right there, he said.
He wanted something over the plate.
He didn't lays off.
Pitch in there for the first strike.
Bases are empty here.
Shave the corner with that pitch, but it's 11 changeup laid off down around the shins.
You know, he was really pounding the strike zone early on, but he's kind of gotten away from that era bit.
He might just need a little reminder to attack hitters and trust his stuff all even now to into.
And he found this one off well hit to right.
But that's a foul ball, making him sweat out their seventh pitch, coming up hard on the ground toward second on that finds its way through for a base hit.
Amazing job just to be able to get executed, breaking down below.
So it's back to the top of the order now and up next.
One of the terrific talents in the game.
Mookie Betts from the stretch.
Here's the pitch hit on the ground, down to short, scooped up.
There's one on the first, and they get them both.
It doesn't come much easier than that.
Tailor made 643 double play and an easy one to turn.
So bases empty now after the double play.
And that will give way to the third baseman, Justin Turner ready with first pitch.
Here it comes in their own one, that elevated fastball right there.
That is the biggest change in the game today for me.
When I first came up, a lot of guys working that Greg Maddux, East West, two out.
Nobody on bouncer up the middle.
Field it cleanly.
Rwanda first gets him in.
The side is retired.
Dodgers do strike for two.
Coming on this two run home run.
We're through five here this afternoon It's the Padres eight and the Dodgers four.
We want Stripling takes over to start the sixth inning on the mountain for a doctor.
Number six started the inning stepping into the box.
Josh Naylor struck out swinging in his last trip to the plate and kind of shocked.
Got blown away with a fastball.
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something that's a big too high that time with the innings first pitch.
It's Bull one now 10 no.
A couple strikeouts early in a game.
But he's done a much better job in this at bat trying to get ahead and put himself in a good hitter's count.
Turned on that one and crushed it.
Just pulled it a little foul.
After fouling off the 2nd 1 I got to step out of the box, just my batting gloves and tell myself there's no chance he's trip.
Went up on that pitch count now with 212 now the pick and he struck out again.
That's the third time he's gone down on strikes in this one.
You know, it was really impressive to me about that strikeout.
He fell behind, you know, to start the fat.
That's a pretty bad place to be.
But many kind of refocused himself came right back with three quality pitches in a row to sit him down.
That's not easy to do, but now his focus has to hone in on getting ahead on the next guy.
So now, to play Francisco Mafia strike one to start the at bat one app.
Nobody on swing in a message in control owing to and try to get him to chase the fastball there.
But he lays off one and two.
Well, he sped him up in this head. Bet.
Now it's time for the change up.
This guy's got a good one, and he hasn't thrown it yet.
Drive the left and that finds some outfield grass.
It's a base hit.
I mean, that has to frustrate the guy on the mound right there, get down to know, put away pitch works to count back to neutral and is able to mix in a base hit.
Nice job, Flake.
Now Zach Davies wanting to avoid the double play.
Here's against this one down, one there.
Throw onto first won't be in time, so they just get the one.
So the batting order turns over now and set to go.
But one rigorous first pitch of the advance and who looks like he got the call there on the pitch inside, It's nothing in one.
Swings through it for strike number two to out with a man at first.
I went for the knockout punch that time, but a good I wanted to from the booth pitch swing and a miss, and that ends the inning.
Padres leave one.
They still lead it by a count of 8 to 4.
Stepping up now, next month.
See, he's old to thus far in this one, ready with the first pitch.
Here it comes, ground ball right into the shift, and there's one away.
Now it will be the four hole Cody Ballenger, one for two games so far.
Infield shifted well with the right.
Here's the first pick for the current campaign.
It's a little over the to 70 mark.
Bases are empty.
One man fouled off and he's keeping it down here.
And that's a called strike 21 And that's how you open up the outside part of plate, pound two balls in and then get right back outside.
Two balls and two strikes.
Now fastball swung on and missed.
And for the second time today, he's gone on strikes.
Tell you he's showing no signs of tiring right now.
Still looks razor sharp from what I could tell, So I think he might last a while longer.
If you keep this up plate now John Peterson as the first pitch mrs to him, it's bull one over to for him to this point.
10 bases your empty here with two men out.
Tries to change up on in there, but it's a ball two on one.
I had him guessing that.
Time is he's barely able to file it away.
This one's outside.
Quite a good off the plate that time, and this pitch is taken here for Ball four.
So the Dodgers able to extend the inning here with two away.
No, no standing in Faurecia becomes in over two thus far.
First pitch coming here it is, and this one's in the dirt.
Runner on first with two away fastball is in there swinging a liner leaps and makes a terrific catch.
With that, the side is retired.
Get up there, big fella, and take Away hit 1/3 onto the back third here this afternoon and we've got it for you on the show.
Flora is on the pitch from the bullpen now to start ending number seven.
Number four Diller Wil Myers will stand in looking for home run number three as we take you back to ending number four.
And this was his second home run of the game as he's been dialed in so far in this one.
No way ready to deliver.
Here's the first pitch I floro 28 years old.
He was 1/13 round pick there in the first year player draft of 2012.
I know this guy wouldn't go into the category of superstar, but to grind out the career he has being drafted where he was.
That's over. But low.
It's a ball in a strike.
Right hander starts to loosen out in the bullpen, now 11 hit to third, and the throw to first is in time.
So the leadoff man is gone here to start any number seven stepping in Tommy Pham over to from him so far.
In this one first pitch of the at bat, I tried to check it in its own one Pham with an even one in one count.
Now swing and a flare hit toward right incomes.
And he tracks it down a nice running play to record the second out.
Two outs down in San Diego, seven for pan up steps.
Big band of Fernando Tanzi's Jr first delivery to him on the way, and he lays off their wanna know.
Two out. Nobody on.
Maybe a little jumpy.
There is. He swings through the fastball.
Nice adjustment out on the mound, overthrew the 1st 1 a little bit, but got on top and let that ball ripped right out in front of him.
11 home on this is where he's especially dangerous because if you walk him, he can steal a base on you.
But if you lay fastball in there, he can take you deep, too.
And this one, Mrs Inside of all, he walked him and they've got themselves a two out base runner.
Man, you hate to give up a two out water anybody, but especially to a speed demon like him.
Good chance he's running here.
And good luck trying to stop him.
Manny Machado will stand in again, but first we flash back to the very first ending of the ball games.
And here you go.
Solo home run and had him often running early on Brown, the strength just off the outside, and it's one low to out with a man at first.
Now throw over on you.
Dive back in safely and another throw over on get 30 buddies back in safely.
10 chased out of his own for strike one.
And as it turns out, the two out walk doesn't come around.
The haunt him is that ends the inning.
One left for San Diego.
They still lead it by a count of two.
Jose Castillo gets the call from the pen to take over on the mound and start the home seven leading off the inning.
They'll need him to get something going on here.
Number first pitch on its way.
Fast wall to start.
Things out here, not close.
It's a ball and no strikes fastball, and that thing got up there at 95 miles an hour of ball in the strike, 11 while slider can't find his own here and he's behind now three and one.
Well, this is the matchup they wanted bringing in the reliever.
But falling behind to a no doesn't exactly help the situation very much.
31 And that Mrs Ball four.
It's a leadoff walk to start the home seventh.
Yeah, that strategy is great when it works out.
When it doesn't, it's ugly.
And he was here to face one guy, and he couldn't get it done trying to pick things up where we left off.
Will Smith comes in one for two with that home run he hit earlier on.
That last at that went deep.
He turned around a pretty good fastball, so I'm kind of thinking this guy's a good fastball hitter, so I might want to move that ball up and down and in and out, trying not to throw it right down the middle of the plate.
All you want is the leadoff man.
Get on to start a big inning, maybe get a big rally, going to claw your way back into this ball Game one of swing and a miss.
That's the first strike action now in the Padre bullpen is it looks like a right handers getting loose out there.
Runner on first, and this one's up around the eyes to in one.
Sometimes you got to be aggressive offensively, but sometimes you just let the pitcher dig his own grave.
Patience and discipline seems to be the way to go right here.
Now the to one is taken.
Bull three on hold.
That should have been Bull four there, but it's a called strike and that runs things full of three and two.
Payoff pitch swung on and missed.
He got him on strikes.
Well, his struggles continue.
It's been a rough go of it at the plate with him and watching this at bat here 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.
Jay will be summoned off the bench years.
He'll pinch hit with runners on first and one gun in the inning for, and it's fouled away Holic, a six foot one inch right handed swinger and thrower.
He was a first round pick back in the 2009 MLB draft.
Yeah, he has turned himself into a really nice ball player.
I wouldn't put him on a superstar level, but you know what? Dive.
But it's office love.
What he was sitting on looking for a dead red piece of cheese.
Middle of the plate.
He didn't miss it.
Here's Mookie Betts on a rope to the second baseman.
Now, now batting Justin Turner.
And with men on base and two away, it feels like this add back would go a long way toward deciding this.
No doubt, Madam Basit here changes this game quite a bit, But if they can't score here, it looks pretty bleak for them heading into the last couple of innings.
Looking to wiggle out of this.
There's a swing and a drive hit well out to right field.
Myers going back a leap of the wall, but he can't bring this one back.
It's a home run, so it's a three run shot to straightaway right field, third home run for him on the year, and it's now in 87 This one has turned into a slug fest of Ruthie and Proportions.
Seven. Combined, Big Fly.
You guys remember seeing anything like that in a while? Hey, thanks.
You know what Dodger Stadium has always been known for a very high mountain.
Just love to pitch in this ballpark, dear.
Oh, when the sun goes down and that marine layer air comes in, this is a tough going right there, Dan Day game, this place place completely different, but to do it at night.
That's why it was such an impressive performance today for them to move traffic all over the yard today, not easily, and that will bring up the versatile next Muncie swings and sends a bullet to right field.
Myers is there, and he'll make the catch to retire the side, but the Dodgers strike for three, all courtesy of the three run home run.
We're through seven this afternoon.
It's the Padres eight and the Dodgers seven.
Training is going to come on in.
Relief is he'll be making his 20th appearance of the season, stepping in Brian Dozier.
Hitler's in three at bats to this point, ready with the first pitch. Here it comes.
No one pitch, one ball work right and a good bite.
That slider is swings through it for the first out of people always talk about how important getting leadoff men on base is, and it's true.
So in the eighth inning of a one run game, that's a really nice job of attacking a hitter, sending him packing into the box.
Josh Naylor hold high in the year out to right field, giving chases.
He gets there and makes the play for the second out of the inning.
Now, about digging in the switch hitter Francisco MCT via last time through was a basis.
First pitch coming.
Here it is that one bends into the zone.
A strike on the breaking ball.
As we near the end of this wanting, it's safe to say that the story of the game has undoubtedly been the long ball guys.
What do you think about what we've witnessed? Well, as a former offensive player, I absolutely love it.
Kudos toe both lineups for doing absolute damage today, one of the most fun watches of the year.
You don't derail what this shows me in this New age way of guys going up there, and they're swinging hard you need to make good pitches, quality pitches.
If you don't have command of the fastball, you're in for a long day.
And we saw that here this afternoon, Ball flying out near record pace.
You have to find a way to lay off that low sinker.
There is just no way to do any damage.
You're just looking at either Grushin or ground out to the left side count, even a two and two.
Neither guy willing to give in and the at battle continue 2 to 1 more time on a pitch of the at bat is the one that finally does it as he wears him down in the inning is over.
Padres down in order, they hold onto their slim 87 lead.
Now we're gonna have a conference at the home plate area, so it would appear that we'll see a double switch here strong.
Come on to pitch now as we move into the eight spot in the lineup on the double switch here.
Lost in Hedges was into the ballgame as well.
It will slide into the pitcher's spot, hitting ninth now on the double slit bottom of the inning.
Now, next will be the Dodgers.
Cody Ballenger sat down on strikes in his last at bat.
This things far from over.
Even though we're moving into the back in this game only down by one, all they need to do is get this leadoff guy, and they're an extra base hit away from tying this thing up.
Here comes the only one.
Oh my, this ball is Where will this one end up? Dodger fans have heard for years.
He is here, solo shot down the line in right, and we are tied again.
This has been quite hitting display from both sides.
That's home run number eight on the day.
They're absolutely not in a couple off the ball.
I'm curious to get your take on this.
I didn't find it to be the truth.
I didn't mind hit a lot of say.
They see the ball better during the day.
You know what's funny? The road.
I prefer to pitch in night games as opposed to day games.
I thought it was advantage to hit her, and so far that looks like it's the case in this one right here.
They must be seeing the ball really well because they're they're just absolutely smoking the baseball right now.
Two balls and no strikes.
The count. The Dodgers center fielder.
Couple of writing starting to loosen now in the bullpen.
Both teams with eight hits in this one three.
And, oh, now every base runner in a close game like this really matters, so you can't afford to be giving out free passes this late from the wind up the three open, you maybe get two pitches a game where all the guesswork goes out the window.
This is certainly that situation.
The 31 and he lays off Ball four.
Now the potential go ahead run is on base here.
Well, he walked him on five pitches, but that last pitch was really good.
He missed down, but only by a hair hitter.
He could wait until he gets a pitch he loves.
So a runner at first now, with nobody out extracting with flavor.
Bqool Reese, eager as a look, now runs aboard here first with nobody out fouled away to, and he popped him up over toward the left side of the infield.
Machado is there, and he's got it for the first, ready for another shot. Now.
Sit in the pitch.
Look like you tried to pull it there, but he swings right through the fastball plate.
One ball, one strike possible.
Runs on 1st 1 away.
Fastball got away from in there.
It's ball to and its two balls and two strikes now open a send him packing pitch on its way.
It's on the ground. A second.
Did he get his double play? See? Well, this is kind of unforgivable for the second baseman.
He tries to square himself with throw to second to start a double play in it.
I'm not sure what happened next.
Maybe it's please God stuff.
Or maybe he just lost grip.
But the net result is E four.
With two men on board.
Luis Perdomo takes the mound trying to get out of this mess.
There are two on with only one away.
Smith will be his first assignment here, is facing with runners at first and second, and one gun has a look.
Now the pit on lookout.
That fastball ran in and got him.
Man, that's going to drive.
The manager insane loses control of his release point, and now the go ahead run moves 90 people's scoring.
He's gonna have to make some good pitches now to get out of this baby.
Come on to pinch hit here in a big spot just a bit high with fastball that didn't get called baby stands at six foot.
Even that's left throws, right? He was a 12 round selection back in 2015.
This guy's got a chance to be an absolute steal being drafted Where Waas There are definite signs that he has a chance to make an impact and he takes ball to its to one.
It often becomes order to hit zone with pressure starts to bases loaded here.
One man, I talked him up Machado shading to his right, and that's the second out of the inning, so that will bring in Mookie Betts.
His day at the plate hasn't amounted to much over four, but this is a great opportunity to make your team really needs you like they needed right here.
You have to be able to put your personal struggles out of your mind right now is a lot that matters.
First pitch of the at bat on its way in there, the letters own one one and one with Dodgers lead off.
Man ready with 11 one and two.
Definitely big pitch coming up right here.
He's going to be pumped.
If he could work its way out of this inning with the game still time, Stand alive, Putting together.
We're really good at bat here.
This is hit to third.
Is he going to get out of this? He is.
They get the force at second base end.
The inning is over.
Dodgers are able to tie things up on the solo home run.
Ninth inning straight ahead, and we are deadlocked in eight of peace.
Pedro Brian beyond the mound to start the ninth inning, and his job will be keeping the ball game tied and tell the bottom set to start the ninth in this 1% to get his day started.
Austin Hedges and it's been a real struggle for him with a bat so far this year.
Looking to get things turned around in a hurry.
Ninth inning underway Now is the first pitch is taken for a called strike by its was known as a short relief specialist guy who came in got one or two big outs.
But with the new pace of play rules, they're forcing a change for this right and ER and gets him through that.
He's in control 02 now.
Pitch on the way, Mrs. With Fast.
Well, there's a classic old, too wasted fastball, not even close to the zone with somebody throws on the next pitch, 12 And that's a swinging strike.
Three in the dirt and makes the throw to first.
Hedges retired, and there's one away.
San Diego Banning order turns over and set to go. One rigorous.
He went down on strikes last time up.
First pitch of the fastball just missed above zone.
This is on the ground over to first, and that will find its way into right field for a one out single.
No at the plate.
Wil Myers, as the first pitch to in swung on and missed for strike one one away.
The runner at first represents the potential go ahead score.
Double play is in order, however, one clearly off with this timing on that one.
A swinging strike possible.
Go ahead, runs on 1st 1 away.
Inside you might be trying to set him up here.
One and two, step out of the box.
Take a deep breath.
After spitting on that changeup, you might have bought yourself a fastball.
Now the one in to pitch Mrs Ball, too, got him swinging.
Chased it well out of the zone.
And there are two really good late bite on that slider right there.
The best ones have that late action that just darts at the last minute there.
So tough to get the bat on.
And when you've got that good slider going, it's a great strikeout pitch.
And now Tommy Pham and found this one off.
There are two gone and the possible go ahead run.
At first, the old one fouled on to out with possible go ahead running first ripped down the line.
This will be a foul ball, and it's still going to strikes him out on a good pitch.
Win it as we head to the bottom of the inning.
One score remains even in eight apiece comes on to work.
Now he's their usual closer, But this is obviously not a save opportunity.
Yeah, this is all about just getting him some work, guys.
He hasn't a chance to come in and close the game out for several days now, sir.
They're just hoping that could keep him sharp and give him a chance to pitch in a real game situation here.
Here's the nothing in nothing pace.
Justin Turner is in to start things off.
Here is he looks at a called strike.
It's nothing in one borderline pitch right there, but as a low ball hitter, you can live with that as long as the umpire doesn't give him north slung on and lifted in the air to left center, Lagares is under it, one away.
Riding in Excellency, struggling so far in this one and looking to race is over.
Four ballgame right here.
First pitch of the swing and a mission is behind on one.
That's gonna be absolutely epic because now he's mixing it up.
He's got a little cat mouse working, and as an offensive player, you guys step out of the box and say, All right, he's respected me a little bit.
I can't be Elin fastball.
Maybe a favorable call.
Their taken for a strike, ready with the to on its filed away to once more.
Looked after ball one 12 swung on and missed.
He got him on strikes.
They really had his number so far in this series.
That's his fifth strikeout in this series.
Go alone Cody Ballenger at the plate now, as the first pitch to one is taken, loan away for 12 home runs already to his name in this one, and we'll see if he could possibly strike again.
Ready with the 10 hit high and deep out there to left center field.
Left fielder looking up.
Track way solo shot here to left center field, None bigger than that one.
As this ball game is over, everybody wants to be a hero.
Hit one of those walk off game winning home runs.
So you know, right now he's getting mobbed by his teammates.
He has to feel off good, so the lineup really helped carry them to victory here in this one.
And this man was a big reason why he's our tops player of the game.
When you walk up to the plate and get a block off Tater, you're probably going to be the player of the game, and that was a clutch swing of the bat.
And he'll be riding high on that one for a while.
I'm sure you know what I'm reaching for shop.
Who's keeping score way? Make it home bag.
Don't stop press go A lot of money on the float, shaking 100 days trapped, trapped over close 1 98 at the end of the game in this one Los Angeles Dodgers came through when it mattered in the ninth on the way to win.
Pedro Baez claims to win out of the pen, his first, so that just about does it for Mark Derosa.
Dan, please act hiding, walking and our entire pool on Matt Vasgersian.
You've been watching MLB the show for more.
Make your way over to the show nation, Doctor.
One error they left and wait right home
