Bases are empty here with Choo gone and into him.
Next, it will be the ever versatile Chris Taylor.
Here's the first offering swing and a miss on the sinker on one.
I got a really commend this picture right here was able to regroup in between innings.
Something happened in a dugout because he's on point coming out for the second.
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
This should end the inning.
Is it sent out to second? Merrifield scoops it up.
Throw to first in plenty of time in the side is retired bottom of the inning, now stepping in for his so there.
And he's a guy looking toe break out in a big way.
Hasn't been getting the results or his club have been hoping for.
And against a head over one one down and now a curve ball that bounces up to the plate.
It's 11 now pitch on the way.
There's not too many umpires in the game that are gonna bring that for a strike right there that was borderline up, even though it was in zone two and two to Jorge.
So there Hey, this picture better be careful right here.
But man at the plate is not trying to push something to the opposite field.
Lofted in the air out toward right center there to look it in his bats.
And that's out number one.
So the bases empty here with one away and that will bring up Hunter first pitch of the at bat.
Tight break with the slider, their catches, the inside for a strike at Mrs Wide one ball and one strike on that fastball is too much for one and two.
This picture is bringing it with some high V low.
You better get that front foot down early and get ready.
Or he's gonna fall right by two and 200.
Dozier looping, fly ball out to right.
That's coming on, but he won't get there.
Here's the catcher Salvador Perent.
First pitch years have been high.
One comes in, one ticks shy of 300 to 99 4 home runs on 16 R B fastball here, and this is softly hit in, Fouled off to the left.
Morenz, a Venezuelan born ballplayer, is currently third in the league amongst catchers in All Star Fan balloting.
You don't want to leave it up to a manager's decision.
You want to get in based on the fan vote, and he has a chance to do exactly that.
If you could make a late push, as we have towards the Midsummer Classic, 2 to 2 now and he tries to get him to reach for it.
But it stays outside three and two.
We could see the runner in motion here on a 32 count with one out.
There's a a backhanded trying to the whole of short, but this gets on buying box now.
Change of two drops in there for the first trying, carrying a batting average of just over 300.
So clearly he's been a productive player with batons.
Hands so far on this one gets away.
So now two men in scoring position, one and one.
Here it is, break waiting.
His turn on deck is Alex Gordon open to send him packing pitch on its way, bouncing to the left side.
Throw to first is in time, but meanwhile, the runner is in to score.
So stepping in Alex Gordon look to bring home that run from second with a base hit into the outfield first offering on its way.
Ready with one old.
Sometimes it can be difficult for a picture you're facing a guy that's not known to be a big stick in the lineup sometime.
The toughest thing is to be aggressive and throw strikes.
Count down to one, gets the sign to on one right at the third baseman, and that will end the inning at the plate.
Will Smith, and he'll start out there half of the third top of the order to follow will.
Here's the first pitch to him.
It's only two that misses one and two Great arm action on that to strike changeup right there.
But even better, job the plate to take that one changes up on it, but that's in the dirt for rebel man.
This said that has changed quickly from Owen to now to into a good job of plate discipline by the sitter.
Not chasing those pitches just off the plate pit lofted in the air out toward right center sole heirs.
After it, he makes the catch a great effort to get there and record the first out of the inning, so that will bring in Mookie Betts, a base hit in his first trip.
Yeah, guys, everyone knows he's been slumping.
Then you can certainly attest this, only amassing a solid one hit in your entire career.
The pressure's off now.
Maybe he gets, and that finds its way into center for one out base hit.
Now throw over to first.
Get back in standing, stepping in now.
Justin Turner, A seal.
Take a called strike here on a borderline pitch.
Strike 1/1 here in the early going and a sinker dips too low there into the dirt, in fact, and they go off speed.
Here is this pitch misses.
It's two on one hit on the ground down the first base line, but this will be a foul ball.
Is that even things that to To working for the punch out and the offering got him swinging, chased it well out of his own, and there are two gone, so it's a runner at first with two guns, and that will bring up big band of Max Muncy from the belt kicks and deals Weighing inside with.
That was a pretty easy, take their, and he misses low with it, too.
And they obviously circled him before the game that they were not gonna let him beat them.
Walked in this first time up, and now they're nibbling again and this one's over at the knees to one throw over to the bag on.
He'll be back in standing up, gets the sign here, comes to one, and he found this one off Events.
Leads on first with a pair of ants in the inning and another foul ball.
Here's another two to lined into right.
A base hit and throw in gets away from him, and that runner will go no further than second is.
There are two aboard now, so here's Cody Bellenger as we go after the first pitch to comes up empty, it's Strike one.
He launched one over the wall back in the opening frame.
No one in one one in one pitch has to be a challenge pitch coming up here.
He probably doesn't want to flirt with loading the bases inside for a ball is he falls behind you in here.
This is spot you like to be in as a good hitter runners in scoring position and count leverage in your favor.
And did he go? No, he did not.
Says the third base umpire.
So it's full four.
So the bases were loaded here.
Striding to the plate will be Cory Seager first offering on its way.
Wanna know? Here it is to one score.
Here is we play inning number three.
This is on the ground to short.
Is he going to get out of this over the first? He does Get out of it and the inning is over.
Brett filled up so bad.
Next match up with your area.
Still lead off the inning.
First pitch coming Here it is.
And that's in there for strike one.
Phillips Native Floridian.
He was taken in the sixth round there in the first year player draft of 2012.
Hey, this middle round selection still developing, But he's doing it at the big league level and he has a lot of time to get his wall in two strikes the count.
Get on the ground, out to short, speak up and thats out number one.
So it's back to the top of the order now striding toward the plate next of the Adelbert to Ammon to see third baseman in tight, protecting the bunt.
The first pitch and he throws the fastball.
But I am here one.
If you're able to blow a first pitch fastball by guy, gotta believe that pitch is coming again right here.
Try to run his way on, but this is popped up and the throw is too late.
He's on with a beautiful place, one single, take a look, a slider here that finds the zone for Strike One.
Now move over to first throw is up.
The line is it gets away.
One runner at second with one man.
Slider is laid off on the inside is it just misses the zone.
The work account put himself back in.
The driver's seat.
Started off with one strike, and now he's got the Countess favorite.
Now the 32 pitch and that Mrs Ball four.
So its first and second with only one away stepping in with Merrifield for one for him here in this one.
Ready? Here's the first offering a little off and it's in for a called strike one.
Ooh, that's a good pitch.
Take a right there.
Change up, up in the zone.
If you'd like to have that one back behind to now, nothing in to count on the fastball here.
That wise layoff and it's one and two.
There's a good curveball.
Is he set down on strikes for the second time here tonight? Next will be the cleanup hitter for official there.
Two on two out for here in the third, trying to hang a zero.
Here's the pitch.
Ready with one only.
What a great opportunity to come through right here to count runners on base.
Find something middle of the plate a little bit in their 21 gutsy pits right there to change up for a strike.
Good call by the catcher.
Great execution Bythe fastball on.
Looks like they're pinching him a bit.
Here, it's 31 There is that were alive that doesn't love Hitting.
A fastball counts like 31 It's usually a pretty fruitful count in terms of getting a pitch digging in.
Now he's got a chance to tie this ballgame up with that equalising run just 90 feet away at third from the Strip to this inning already.
I just can't seem to find strikes.
Can't sit back long enough in the count.
Evens up one on one breaking ball, snaps in there for a called strike two.
That's a great job by the picture right there stealing a strike.
Would that get me over breaking ball? And now we can get a little nastier with a little low.
It's 22 ball bounces, and that gets by to the backstop.
Runners will hold tight, but it's a full count now.
This is foul right side, back up the middle and in for the base hit.
One run is scored and the run is in to score from second.
It's a 3 to 2 ballgames and up steps.
Salvador for ends as he looks at a fastball that's in there for strike one.
Salvador Perez behind in the count. Nothing into.
Well, you could see he's coming right at this guy, just pounding the ball strike.
So he certainly has the advantage.
Now this guy has even swing the bat yet Ball and two strikes to the Royals catcher set on 12 This is a huge pitch right here.
I don't think he wants to go 32 and have those runners being motion.
Look for him to be aggressive with what he thinks is his best pitch count full three balls and two strikes.
Skied into very shallow right bets.
Has a read on it, and that retires.
Digging in Kiki Hernandez.
He's over one after grounding out and his only trip to the flight so far.
First pitch show on its way.
Hit hard to third.
Dozier brings it in.
Throw to first in time.
One. Gone here in the fourth.
Luck's looking to put the ball in play here.
He went down on strikes in his first at bat.
Yeah, but it was a good change up Matty.
Good arm action on that pitch.
Look for him to try and stay back a little bit more.
Let the ball get a little deeper.
Don't be shocked if this picture tries to Russia Heater right here.
You think back to the early innings right there.
You thought this guy has been hitting the showers a credit to him? He's been able to regroup, find his mechanics and find a way to stay in this game.
try to bounce a curveball on owing to, but he holds back its one and two.
Neither guy willing to give in and the ad battle continues trying to send him packing for the second time got him swinging.
Chased it well out of his own.
And there are two gone back.
So bases air empty here with two gone and into hit.
Next, it will be the ever versatile Chris Taylor swinging a bull hit on the ground.
Throw gets you nice play.
There is the side is retired.
Digging in for his second at bat, Ryan heard over one with run batted in, the number ready.
Here's the first offering.
Help wanted 10 no offer on that 12 balls and strikes.
I don't blame him for not coming over the heart of the plate.
He circled this guy on the lineup card when he got to the yard.
Today he's been swinging one.
The hotter bats in the game filed off.
Fastball is right by him as he swings and misses for the first out of the inning.
Jimmy Nelson answers to call from a friend here in the fourth, as they didn't get the outing, they were hoping for a starter.
Here's the left fielder Alex Gordon.
He's over one thus far.
Started the breaking ball far, too inside that time.
Laid off for ball one.
A little roller toward the hole when he can't pick it up cleanly now into the box breath.
Take a look at one comes into this at bat for one.
He pulls this one into right, and that'll get down out there near the wall.
And they have runners at second and third following a one out double.
So now to the plate at Alberto Mondesi.
First pitch sinker mrs, too.
And it's ball one.
Strength 11 home shot down the first baseline reach, but it's Miami's.
He couldn't quite get one.
Throw comes to second, but he'll get in there with an R B.
Double runner from second crosses the plate.
It's five to please standing in.
Jose Peraza First pitch to play for a ball, one or no, not close.
It's too farmers.
Now The pics bullpen needs to step up in this situation.
I gotta believe the manager was hoping for way more than this one five runs, seven hits and no errors so far for the Royals.
Now a swing as he hits this one into the air.
But this will be fouled off to the right out of play.
Hold high in the air, out to left field, left fielder giving chase.
He tracks it down and makes the play to record the second with Merrifield next.
To avoid that, struck out in each of his 1st 2 plate appearances so far from the belt.
Kicks and deals get out to a second to throw on two months.
He gets a men with that bill in the inning.
Ready now Will Smith.
He's in to get things going here in inning number five, Will you first pitch to it? Wind up and the old one one smoked on the ground, up the middle and a base hit.
So the leadoff man is aboard plate Mookie Betts as the first pitch to the sinker in the dirt for ball 12 hits in two trips, more in thus far, one and one that the Dodgers lead off.
Man, you know the picture right now.
He's looking for that best friend, that double blade bone.
This is where you have to really be disciplined at the plate and make sure that you get a pitch that's above that.
Easy. Get in the air.
Here's the 21 this'd where you cash your checks right here.
311 of the best hitters in the game.
You live for situations like this, and he will take ball four first and second with nobody out settling in now.
He comes in over two thus far from the stretch.
If you're standing on the bump right now, have to find a way to punch this guy's ticket or roll a double play.
Roll slowly down the third base line.
This will get foul for Strike two.
Open a Send him packing pitch on its way.
And this really fooled in that time for the first out.
Jesse takes the mound to try to get out of this mess.
There are two on with only one away.
Max Muncy will be his first assignment here is facing with runners at first and second and one gun weights.
Now two runs, five hits, one error in the ball game for the Dodgers to this point, high in the air and drifting out to shallow center.
Mondesi is there.
That's second out of the inning, stepping in and ready for another shot party.
Ballenger, and we'll see what he could do here with a pair of runners on base on two.
Gone here in the fifth first pitch fastball swung out and missed on one swing and a miss its own, too.
Now breaking ball runs in Anonymous.
He's got to get his hands out of the way on that pitch big spot right here.
That's a great pitch to try and see if you could get him to fish outside the zone.
He's still in the driver's seat right now, and I'd expect something else miss off the plate, and the two out threat will not come to pass as the inning is over in his Jorge Still there.
It was a walker in his last trip.
First pitch of the at bat on its way, now a ground ball.
The Sieger it short.
He's got it, and there's one down now into the box now.
His last appearance.
He singled home a pair of runs.
First delivery to him on the way popped up Muncie over to his left, and he makes the catch for the second out.
So, too, are gone down.
Royal, fifth and up next, a former World Series hero, Salvador.
Here comes the first pitch, and he'll take strike one on the fastball, registering at 93 that time, Pretty much an obligatory take that time.
Yeah, when the first guys an inning make first pitch outs, you really don't have much choice and elegant down out there for extra bases, and he is in the second with a two out double into the box.
Now Ryan O Hearn just gets a piece of its strike.
One he's over to in the ball game so far.
There's a fastball pretty close that time, but ruled a ball one and one hangs on them a bit.
That time is, it's belted out toward deep center field.
Dillinger retreats to the track, and he'll put this one away.
So a sigh of relief as the side is retired leading off the inning.
Corey Seager and they'll need him to get something going here first, offering on its way bottom part of the zone and the slider is in there for recalled strength fastball here.
Not close in its one and one.
Now here's the pitch, and they go off spin.
Here is this pitch misses.
It's two on one three, and one is the count of the Dodgers shortstop.
Well, that's all three.
The Dodgers right now would love to start this sitting off with a walk anyway to get this leadoff guy on.
Fastball is in there.
Swing and a flare hit toward right here comes so they're not going to get to it.
So the leadoff guys aboard with a base hit.
Now, now Hernandez, look a fastball in there on the outer half.
Its own one thes hit Listen is to add that so far on, the ground is short.
This could be, too.
There's Merrifield on first, and they turn the double play.
Next for the Dodgers.
Gavin Lux was sat down on strikes in his last at bat, ready to deliver.
Here's the first pitch now 10 swing and a miss.
That's the first right fastball will outside a couple strikeouts early in 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, lifted down the line in left in their base hit.
He takes the turn and heads for second in.
Hit hard down the left field line.
But this is foul near the seats.
Nothing in one count.
Here it comes, lifted down the line in right and back out of play.
Holds it own, too, working for the punch out and the offering yanked the slider across that time laid off for a ball hard on the ground towards 2nd what a guy stepping up now.
A hidden too dry for so far.
Delivery to him on the way.
What a stop on the slide.
So striding in Phillip, try to follow up with double in his last at bat with another big right here.
Here comes the first pitch, Mrs One Good zip on that one is he just throws it by him for strike one.
And did he go around? No, he did not fall to falling behind.
Now three and one.
One thing to connect us pictures.
Having to work really hard to get a guy that you think this should be able to cruise right through.
He's not known for his offensive prowess, but he's putting together a real nice at bat here.
Fouled away, 321 more time, making them work out their ninth pitch of the at bat coming up and it takes ball four.
So a good job out of the nine holding getting on base is we go back to the top of the order back to the top of the lineup, stepping in at Alberto Mondesi, two for three with a double on his line so far, and he's no doubt searching for a ground ball.
Here is this sinker dips below the knees.
It's one or no, and that when this is badly, it's bull, too.
That's where he wants that sinker to end up.
But that was a nice job of laying off Roundball sent back up the middle one there relay.
He beats the throw by step.
So coming to the plate, Jose Peraza over to from and so far in this one, there's nothing.
Nothing pitchout thrown on.
Even a pitchout can do the trick.
He's in their second runners, breaking for third pitch.
Mrs Loath, Throw down, He's in there easily throw bounces on the way down.
Have to go home.
Looked at for the first strike and he wouldn't make contact with that one within.
Or it's two and two from the about the pitch and a pitch down that swung on and sent a second reined in throwing dirt.
Put a good scoop.
It first saves an error is the side is retired now in the box.
Will Smith it lead it off? Here is we begin.
Inning number seven will first pitch of the at bat.
Everything this guy throws moves.
That two seamer has a mind of its own slow little grounder left side, and the throw to first is in time.
So the leadoff man is gone here to start any number seven one gun now in the l A.
Seventh and up next.
One of the terrific talents in the game.
Here's the first offering five to our score as we play inning number seven swing and a drive sent out toward the gap.
So they're going back on track and this is gonna rattle up against the out of town scoreboard now, and he is in to third with a triple, his third head of the night.
Now that now Justin Turner look a first pitch fastball for Ball one and it's fouled away, 11 high in the air, out to left field.
Gordon is there.
Makes the catch.
Here comes the runner from third, and they'll get one back with Sac flies.
It's now a 5 to 3 ball into the box.
Max Muncy flew out his last ready with first pitch.
Here it comes time to aggressively these hitters now after that sac fly.
Now it's time to try to get out of this inning with only one run scored.
That's wide to know.
This sitting really feels like it's getting away from him out there As a reliever.
You can't let that happen.
Nothing you could do about what's already happened, and it's only gonna get worse if you're not focusing on the guy in the batter's box.
A strike and it's three and one and he jumps it.
A change up, a swing and a miss Guess who tipped their hand.
They were sitting all over a piece of cheese.
He flew open on the front side, and he lost him here on a 32 Pitch misses.
It's Ball four ready to deliver.
Here's the first Cody Bellenger is in with two ways.
He takes a ball one or no can't get around quick enough, and that will move the accounts of one on one fouled off again, and now he's in a one and two whole from the about grounded up the first base line when this is passed him down the line.
So now they have runners on the corners with two away, so left handed hitter waiting, they'll go to their own left hand around the bullpen.
Next at the plate will be Corey Seager.
Bilger is under it, and that ends the with digging in to try it again, with Mary feeding the whole for three with a couple of strikeouts for this point in the ballgame.
First pitch of the at man, one of looks with a sinker there that drops in one and one called strike on the inside and he can't believe it at the plate.
It's one and two now and try to get him fishing there, but he won't offer and dirt, and it's back to even a two and two popped up and there's a base hit.
So a chance for some insurance here to start out the home half of the seventh booth, first pitch to him is swung on and missed for Strike one.
Now with Rover on a dive.
But he's back in and it's one on one now.
A good pitch around the knees, but it doesn't quite catch the bottom of his own to one runners on the move for second.
Which Mrs Loath Throat not going together, disease like second No.
One out with a runner in second and this mrs here for Ball four.
Just the second walkies issued here into his seventh inning work out Ross Stripling Burns on now in an awfully difficult situation is there are two on here with nobody out 100 does will be his first test out of the bullpen, and it will be a tough test indeed, as you face him with two on and nobody out here, both mothers on the booth swings and this is throw down not in time.
Safe third as they pulled off a double steal.
Here's the old one pitch fastball just misses.
That's ball one stone cold take right there.
That fastball very well could have sent him packing back to the bench.
Slider runs away from in there, and the count levels at 22 filed off wide. First.
Before that had some zip on it, and he found this one off.
What on a line to shortstop.
Throw to the bag and the runners back in time, digging in and looking for more salad or two for three and looking for more here from the stretch.
Here's the pitch.
Stripling has proven to be a guide to throw strikes coming out of the pen and doesn't walk a lot of batters.
Every manager and pitching coach. Maddie.
They love to bring a guy in that They know one thing.
He's going to throw strikes and not beat himself.
And this guy is certainly not afraid to attack the strikes of waiting inside with.
That was a pretty easy take.
Their lots of guys get too aggressive in a spot like this, but he's done a nice job of gains from count leverage.
Look for him to put the ball in, play hard, and he fires a fastball now for a called strike two grounded to third loved by Turner, and that's the second out.
So next with plate for the Royals, writing her listen three at bats to this with first base open, it looks as though they go after the next guy with force at any base now in order and two men gone, he said.
Here it comes, and ones that high and tight.
He's really in trouble, and it's just getting worse and worse and worse.
This guy needs to find the strike zone in the worst way.
Strength a ball into strikes to Alex Gordon.
Not likely to see 1/4 fastball in this situation.
I'm gonna eliminate the fastball plate right here and change up here.
But that's taking loathe.
Got ahead with two good fastballs and then tried to drop to change up to see if he'd be out in front.
Did a great job that pitch right there.
Interested to see where he goes to full count, ready with off.
And this is drifting foul back into the stands out of the stretch, the 32 home again.
He sends it out of play.
Here's the payoff pitch swinging a ground ball and this should get him out of it on the first and the Royals can't cash in.
The inning is over.
New ending sent to get underway Stepping up with play Piquet Hernandez was a double play victim last time around.
He doesn't have to worry about that in this situation.
One on base right now.
Try and get something up so you could drive a baseball on the first pitch of the inning.
Down and in fur ball.
It's wanna know like the fastball got away from in there.
It's ball to two on the way.
There is the off speed pitch, Mrs. Well, inside.
When you're playing close games like this, base runners mean everything, so he can ill afford to start giving away free passes.
Now it's swing and a fly ball, but this will land on touched into center field line drive base in.
So it's a leadoff base hit to open their half of the eight standing in.
Now Gavin looks take a look at a strike right down the middle, its own one.
He's got a hit in three at bats to this swing and a Miss open to send him packing pitch on its way struck him out.
Struck him out again, I should say his third punch out of the game.
Ian Kennedy takes the mound now, and it appears he's being brought in to face.
The right handed batter waits next.
You usually don't hear the term writing specialist very often, but that's kind of how they're using him here. Matt.
Most hitters have a harder time against pictures of the same handedness, so we'll see if this move pans out.
Chris Taylor started to go around, but it's a called strike O on one, this advantage quickly moving from bad to worse.
It's going to now really ugly old one swing there.
As a pitcher, you've got to be hunting for the strikeout, knowing you have this kind, way off balance count remains it owing to nothing in to count and the pitch and try to get him to chase the fastball there.
But he lays off one and two fastball.
Strike three called does.
He couldn't pull the trigger, and there are two away now standing in.
Will Smith is working on a one for three thus far.
First delivery to him on the way runner on first with two right there, and it's quickly going to now.
That's the exact spot.
Lean on as a reliever.
As a hitter, you just have to tip your cap and look for the next one a little bit off the outside.
It's one and two strikes him out as well, so make it back to back punchouts here to the first too many faces out of the bullpen.
Dylan Flora will come on in relief here and appear in game number 25 on the year so far.
Now, with Blake, Brett Phillips is working on a one for two games so far.
Way to go first offering on its way players a breaking ball, but it's laid off.
Doesn't find the zone too much dip on the sinker laid off for a ball to a home three.
And oh, now you could pretty much book a that of fastballs Coming.
A challenge Fastball right here.
He cannot allow nine hole hitter to get on base with top of the order three and one.
The count now, and this is taken here for ball form.
So the leadoff man's on base to kick off the homemade digging in the switch hitter at Alberto Mondesi.
It's been a two for four effort for him so far in the ballgame.
It's the bottom of the strike zone here with sinker.
Strike one Mrs with it, one on one from the about the pitch.
Good deception on the slider.
There is his way out in front and check swing.
And he went around, says the home plate umpire ruling.
So brother first now with one away, taking into fat.
Next, it'll be Jose Peraza turned on down the line.
This gets foul, its own one.
He's gonna be thinking about that pitch all night.
If he doesn't have a big game right here, hold his front shoulder and everything went with it.
Mind the right side.
That's into the outfield for one out base hit, and they'll have runners at the corners following one out single with field.
Next, take a look.
A slider here that misses for ball one.
It comes into disappearance in the midst of a 14 day change up low, too well for those balls been inside.
So by meeting, I'm looking for something I could get my arms extended on, probably won't come back inside for 1/3 time.
Three and no doing now from the belt kicks and deals three and one with 21 And this is worried.
You gotta be geared up for something to drive.
I don't think you can just groovin one right here.
You still have to try to make a competitive fits.
On the ground of the left side has delivered on three and two.
He comes up big.
It's a basis at the plate for history there, and we'll take a look at a high strike that time.
It's nothing in one.
This one's outside.
Quite a good off the plate that time, he said.
Here comes the 11 first and second now one man out.
That's off the end of the bad foul.
And he might have been fortunate to stay alive that time.
12 thing is exactly the reason why this guy has been so successful and has played this game so long.
Scrambling pitch after pitch, making this guy work out swing and a miss and dodged a major bullet that two away, hoping to limit the damage.
Here's pitch loud contact there, but it's well, foul one pitch down the line. It first.
This will be a foul ball issues behind owing to now nothing in to count and the pitch well off the inside that times the sinker mrs for a bowl.
Hey, this is a big pitch right here.
Can allow them attack on any more runs.
Let's see if he attacks his own.
A very something in it.
Two balls and two strikes now to to hit down the third base line on a close play in the bag.
But a good stretch by the first baseman got the out in the inning is over.
Scott Marmo comes on from the pen, hoping to finish this one off here in the top of the ninth number back to the top of the Dodgers order.
Being in bets will try and lead things off here in inning number nine.
Infield in the over shift here, another too short.
Mondesi scoops it up.
Throw on to first through the out, and that is how the ninth inning gets underway.
Taking in once again, Justin Turner could really use a not hero for three in the game.
So far, he's ready.
Here's the first offering in front here is this one scorched foul to the left that's over but low.
It's a ball in the strike.
Every ball club has that spark plug guide, and this is the guy right here.
Usually ignites a lot of productive innings.
Faces your empty one man liner towards second on.
He couldn't quite get high enough to pull that one down.
It's into right center, a base hit, and that will bring up diversity.
We'll take one up in the zone, but indeed in the strike zone for the first strike swing and a miss on the slider ratings quickly behind.
Not much you're gonna do with that Pits right there.
You have to catch out front before it even breaks.
And even if you do that, it's a tough It's to keep fair.
So there is there.
There are two gone next, with Dodgers cleanup hitter Cody Ballenger comes to the plate as the last chance for his side to out here in the ninth, ready with the first pitch fastball too high to start him out here one.
And think about it in Game one of this series.
They've already had to go deep into their bullpen.
This could affect them for the rest of the weekend if they don't get really good starting pitching.
Here's 11 hit hard to the right, but followed.
And now this crowd, right around 34,000 fans, comes to their feet Swing and a miss struck him out.
And that will do it here in the ball game is over.
Always nice to get the first game of the series, but even more so when it's in front of the home crowd seems to energize everybody.
The rest of Siri's tonight's comes to an end.
6 to 3 of the fund.
The Kansas City Royals led this game from the third ending on and never wavered.
Jesse Carr gets the win in relief.
Sixth of the season.
Couldn't escape the fourth inning.
Is he slapped with loss? Scott Harlow closes the door for the same
