MLB Network's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air.
A Memorial Day Get together for you Here in the ballpark between the L. A.
Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies, Colorado have lost their last five games.
They'll attempt to break that streak right after this.
John Grain gets the call for Game one of the Syrians.
What do you have for us on? Um, Danny.
Hey, we're getting a chance to look at a guy.
That guy is a little bit up and down throughout points this career, a career e R A.
When he's good, he can be really good.
And when he's bad, well, let's just say he could be pretty bad at times.
But it will be interesting to see which one we see.
He's a little bit of Jekyll and Hyde.
Hopefully, he's gonna be a little bit more Jekyll than hide in this one here today.
So that will bring in Mookie Betts, and we are ready for some daytime baseball now.
The one in one pitch Hilliard as him played perfectly as he puts it away for out number one burner now in the box.
Justin Turner individual matchup numbers against John Gray.
He's got eight hits in 29 at bats.
He's also been a strikeout victim six times.
Change up, hold a strike and he comes back.
Even a two and two temperatures should get us up into the seventies as we move along.
68 at first pitch.
One out, nobody on.
I had him fooled as he swings through the curveball to down.
That's a pretty sad attempt at hitting a baseball right there.
No doubt he was completely fooled because that was a curveball and it looked like he was late on a curveball.
That tells me he gave up on it right till the very end, and obviously, there was nothing he could do at that point into the box.
You could cut that time.
It comes up empty two and two and set up behind the plate is Joe McDonald, as you see the rest of our umpiring crew in this one eight. Joe MacDonald.
He's a tough guy to figure out.
Sometimes 01 inning.
He'll be given that inside corner the next inning.
He doesn't give much of that.
Inside quarter his own fluctuates a lot.
You know, Dan, you could see some definite confusion on the face of some hitters today, questioning in the strike zone.
One pitch is a strike on the outer half.
The next time it's a ball kind of a little cat mouse with the umpire when you should be focused on the picture.
Another trying to to swinging bunt out in front of the plane.
Throw to first in plenty of time.
On the side is retired.
Dodgers down in order.
It's the Dodgers, nothing Rockies stepping into plate just underway.
Next on MLB Network.
Walker Buehler, a Kentucky born right hander, gets the starting nod.
Then any thoughts.
Hey, Matt will get a chance to look at A guy has been pretty good as last three starts a whip under 1.
20 So he minimizes the amount of baserunners.
He's a tough customer.
It'll be fun to watch him to see if he's on point early in this one here today, standing in Trevor story.
It lead things off here in the bottom hand for the first time, hit the other way out toward right field, Bell injures under it, looks it into his glove.
And there's one gone, So the bases empty here with one away and striding into the plate.
Next will be Greimel Tapia, 12 Still a ball and two strikes.
Here's another one, too, and to and to just off the outside that time laid off for a ball.
Nolan Aaron Nado is on deck now.
The 32 pitch count remains full, Bases your empty one man and finally wins.
The battle is this is swung on and missed for the second out.
One thing to know.
It's not all strikeouts are created equal right there.
He goes down on strikes, but he really made that guy on the mound work for when you're doing that in the first inning, it can have an effect on how deep is going to be able to go into this start.
There's a big difference between that and going down on three or four pitches at the plate now.
Nolan Aaron Nado Good.
I lay off the slider there and he works it to full three.
And to hear wow, talk about a waste pitch on to on to that one wasn't even close.
I don't know anyone that would have swung at that pitch on a good job there to lay off its ball. Fouras.
He becomes their first base runner of the ballgame now with two away, and I'm sure the manager is just fine with that.
I mean, it's better battle a slugger like that to the end and end up walking him than serving on upward.
He can really hurt.
And that will bring in Charlie Blackmon.
And as we give you a look at his splits, he said, the better of right handers this season.
No doubt about that.
Coronado is off first with two away groundball left side loved by Turner.
And as it turns out, the two out walk doesn't come around a haunt him is that ends the inning.
Rockies strand one Still no score.
So here's Cody Bellenger.
Couple of hits for him in four trips in yesterday's game and now a curveball that's Lohan in the dirt for a ball.
It's two in one thes Rockies guys that come into this one in need of some kind of spark to turn them around, and they find themselves in the midst of a five game slide a little early, and now it's even at two and two.
Here's the pitch.
First he's got it.
Throw to first of the in time and there's one gone here to start the second I don stepping up to the plate.
You get to take his first cuts here.
Line drive, and that's a base hit in a center field, digging for second ago's Peterson.
Everyone knows that this guy's numbers are not working once than be so far this year, but you never know by that swing look fluid and confident driving that pitch for a double.
We'll see if that gets him going a bit at the plate for a cedar breaking ball that's in the dirt is he takes the ball one out, a runner on second base, lying toward right center.
That's in their base.
Is the Dodgers grabbed the early one? Nothing.
Lead what? It has to feel good as an interviewer.
Get that they said to give your team believe you have to feel good when you get down to first base.
It's just a nice approach.
You see him turn to his boys right there and get fired up with dug out 100% not trying to do too much, able to quiet the moment down, center himself and come through in a big spot at the plate.
Gavin Lux and he's been a tough out these past couple of weeks, says the numbers there tell you the whole story.
Dodgers have the early one.
We play the second lofted in the air out toward right center, coming in his Blackmun.
He makes the play really had to hustle to get to that 12 gone now into the box.
And there's a look at his home and road splits.
So far this year, he said, Here comes the 11 now a big fastball, and he's well behind it.
With the swing two and two into the Dodgers catcher here.
Now the to to is looked at an account. Moves full.
Good running count right here.
Three balls, two strikes, two outs, one run.
First, he'll be off to the races on this pitch.
32 pitch is a wave and a miss.
He struck him out.
Run on two hits and they leave one.
We'll go to the bottom half of ending number two L.
A's on top one to nothing.
Striding in for the Rockies, Sam Hilliard set to lead off the home half of the second 11 Hi in deep to left center field.
Paco's bets track wall outta here.
Toe. The deepest part of yours.
Solo shot here to left center field.
Home run number five On the year, as the Rockies believe a now at one apiece.
Swing right there, you're facing and start.
I don't know if you're even gonna get one on the baseball today at a rally.
Now Josh Point is in the air, down the line in left, and this will wind up a foul ball.
Good chance. He's not seeing that pitch again.
If he does, it's got to be bounced.
But I'll tell you, from a teacher's perspective, that's nothing but a long strike.
The next three to lined to shortstop.
There's one away in now for Colorado Dom unions.
Run in in one gun so far in the Senate, one app.
Nobody on two and two to the Colorado catcher and Strike three called on the outside corner.
He's earned the right to live out there with fastballs.
My man on the mountain just got great strikeout stuff working for him these days, Looking back at his last start, wrecked up nine K's, and now he's looking like he could put up similar numbers in this one that will bring up Tony Walter's try to make something happen with two gone in the bottom of the second.
No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
Nero Danny to sell a Dodger ball club is the interplay here this afternoon.
It come in scuffling a bit of late, just two and four over their last six games.
Yeah, Matty, they got beat up on the home stand losing record in front of the home crowd.
Never good, but I always used to say, Sometimes it's good to get on the road, Remove yourself, get out to a restaurant, see a different city, shower it off and try and fight in front of the hostile fans.
Won't commit on the slider.
Good patience, and it's full three and two and it's fouled away and he popped him up.
Bets coming on a dive, and he brings it in.
And on a fantastic play, the inning is over.
Worth a second look here as this is a beauty to end the inning.
Don't touch that remote more on MLB network right after this.
So here's the Dodgers pitcher Walker Buehler, 91 and to do up Dodgers pitcher trying to deal with a one and two count of the place.
Too much bite on the breaking ball.
That time is, it's well off the outside, and he found this one off.
Hopped up Coronado is under it.
Mookie Betts hit it hard, lined out in his first at bat.
That's all you can ask.
You can't control the results sometimes.
Matty just unlucky with the placement to one now, Mookie, 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 on this one is over, and he works the count back to, too, and two great job of doubling up with a fastball inside.
A lot of times you'll see a picture go in there, but they won't go back into a second time.
This guy's not afraid to pitch inside, Back up the middle, reined in.
And that's the second out Justin Turner looking to put the ball in play here.
He went down on strikes in his first at bat in a good take their clothes, but it's two and two trying to nibble here and Mrs to run a full now three into Not a time to fool around right now on a 32 count with the middle part of the already coming up. Expected.
Good fits to swing out.
Now the pay off pitch home line hard, but this is a foul ball swing in a line drive foul.
Neither guy given in here's the next one started to go around, but it's a call third strike, anyway, and that will retire the side so they're held in check here this half of the inning.
We'll move on to the bottom of ending number three, all tied at 11 Bottom of the third.
Now into the box now is the Colorado pitcher John Gray, as he'll get his first opportunity in this one.
The corner there, but missed 21 Certainly, no, he's not trying to work around the picture.
Sometimes The hardest thing to do is to throw a strike to a guy that you won't swing the bat.
Oh, now, look at this.
The pitcher gives one a ride deep laugh into the bleachers and gone solo shot here.
Toe left his first home run of the season, and the Rockies have now taken a 2 to 1 lead, just a little more than two innings of work.
He's given up two homers.
Could be just one of those games for him.
We'll see how much rope they give him.
It's definitely getting shorter at the moment.
Stepping in now.
Trevor Story on this.
Misses for ball.
Walkie surrendered here in the 1st 3 innings.
Well, it's obvious that earlier money gave up is still on his money.
He had a green, too, but he didn't want to give him anything over the plate.
So we'll see if that walk comes back to hurt him.
Standing in Raimo Tapia here, look to bounce back after striking out last time.
Sometimes you just got a tip getting paid to try and get you out.
Well, any time it gets up there north of 78 pitch babies, sometimes it just comes down to pure execution.
Let's see if he makes the adjustment.
It's far too late to steal second with, Well, this pictures out there just trying to get hitters out.
He's having a hard time doing that.
So as a base runner, that's a good time to try to steal some bases.
He's probably not as focused on controlling the running game as he should be.
12 Well, I'll tell you, he wants to turn things around.
That pitches one.
He's going to have to start locating a lot better.
No one out with a runner at second.
Neither guy willing to give in and the ad battle continue.
2 to 1 more time is laid off in the count, runs full right side and it's through into right field for a base it on.
Get it in quickly.
It's first and third now with nobody out.
So now time will be crawling.
We're going to get a visit from the pitching coach here.
Is hell hope to settle this guy down into the box? Nolan Aaron Nado fouled off working for the punch out and the offering and the knuckle occurred freezes him as he becomes out.
Number one digging in for his second at bat.
And he's got runners at the corners here with only one gun.
Well, great chance right here as a hitter to be really aggressive.
With two guys already on a pretty good shot.
He's going to get a challenge.
Pitch right here.
The 21 home I with two strikes now on a runner at first.
Do you go for the strikeout? Is still looking for the double play ball.
Pretty good spot to be in a picture right now.
You go for the punch out or trying to use the ground ball to get a double play down the pitch short hit hard, and that's through a base.
It on the runner from third crosses the plate.
It's now 321 and now Sam Hilliard, Mrs to one.
His pitch count is getting up there in the inning.
Now he needs to get this frame over with sooner than later.
So forcing contact and getting the defense involved is probably the best thing he could do.
21 Don't I love the approach Out on the mound.
Everything's down in his own, as it should be.
But now you find yourself in a 31 count, elevate a little bit more and get back in this zone or you just pitch around hitter's count all the way.
Still only one out in the inning.
This is swung on and missed four strikeouts already, and that's out Number two.
Really good late bite on that slider right there with best ones.
Held that late action that just darts at the last minute there.
So tough to get that on.
And when you've got that good slider going, it's a great strikeout at the plate.
Now Josh Flint is, and this is swung on and missed.
A The 30th pitch of this inning finally does the trick.
The side is retired, so to run on three hits, including the home run, no errors and two men left on base on now to the top of ending number four, it's the Rockies three, and the Dodgers won.
Welcome back to Coors Field in Denver as we check in with Heidi Watney Matt during the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, the Dodgers skipper, about his lineups performance so far and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together.
Yes, they've only scored one run, but he said they've done a great job of forcing the pitch count up, and he thinks that's gonna lead to more offense for them as this game goes on.
Okay, Thank you, Heidi.
New Ending Sent to get underway.
Digging in Max Muncy.
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far.
Hey, we're still in the early stage than this one.
They're only down by a couple of runs, but it's really key for this leadoff guy to try to get on and get a big inning started.
Hard ground ball defense played him perfectly, and that finds its way through for a base hit.
And he is in there.
So we struggle that time for him in center field and as a result of the tag with eight on the place at the plate, Cody Bellenger.
I couldn't pull that back.
Is he clearly broke the plane to the plate and that will be ruled a strike swing and a drive to right.
There it goes, Blackman going back and gone up into the second deck.
Cody Bellenger puts a pair on the board with that homer number 14 on the season, and the Dodgers have come back to tie it at three.
I know all home runs count the same, but that one was a little bit ****her than most.
That's what he does.
A power hitter with a challenge fastball is gonna go a long way when he's on his game.
So now to the plate.
Jaak Peterson, Mrs again, pull three.
If I'm in the box right now, I'm coming unglued.
He is going to throw something over the heart of the plate and his motion.
Here comes the three and one.
It's up to a 32 full count.
Now, who? We? That was some smoke right there.
High fire, right on by the 32 pitch.
It's or now even a four apiece and a changeup swung on and missed for the first.
You know, he's probably still thinking about that game tying home run.
He just gave up, and I'm gonna give him credit for not showing that it's bothering him.
When you come back and strike out the next guy, it shows you still got your head in the right place, stepping in now.
Corey Seager high and wide, two balls and a strike grounded up the first base line, but this will be a foul ball.
Is that even things that two and two you can tell he wanted to hold off, but he swings through the inside pitch anyway, and he becomes out. Number two.
That was a nasty looking slider that time.
Yeah, that was really well executed.
A classic strikeout pitch.
You think it's fastball middle in, then it starts bearing in on your back leg, and unless you hit it out front, there's nothing much you can do with that standing in now.
Gavin Lux Get on the ground down for short on.
He can't come up with it.
Rwanda first gets him in.
The side is retired, but the Dodgers do strike for two coming on this two run home run bottom of the fourth coming up.
We're tied now with three apiece, just about set to go for the last of the fourth.
But before we do that, here's Heidi Watney.
I talked with Rockies skipper but black between innings specifically about his tubs.
Offensive output to this point and flat out, he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
They've been able to push across three runs to this point, but they've also made the opposition work extremely hard.
He's thrown a lot of pitches and they think they're gonna have a good opportunity to push across a lot more runs as he tires or as they get into that bullpen.
Good stuff, Heidi.
He got called out on strikes his last time through Yanna.
Borderline call Maddie.
I gotta feel like he's got to build the report with this umpire.
How far he'll go in or out.
He can't allow himself to go down looking again.
It's one and two ball two Pretty good pitch right there.
Fastball in off the plate.
One of things you want to do is a venture.
Try to stand those hitters up now.
Another two to Tony Walters will be next, and that misses for Ball four leadoff walk that starts the bottom of the fourth man when the game is tied, the last four to do is walk.
The leadoff hitter got to focus on getting that ground ball now digging in.
Tony Walters flied out in his first at that.
So making old one so far 11 fastball that Mrs.
It's one thing to get hit around, but it's far worse from you're getting yourself into trouble by not throwing strikes.
Every picture's been there, but it doesn't make it any less frustrating or unacceptable on the ground to second base.
This could be to second for one on the first double play.
Nice job on the mound of bounce back from the leadoff walk.
Those air usually pretty costly.
But that won't be the case this time after the two ball bases are empty here with two gone and up next, the pitcher's spot that will be John Gray Rockies pitcher with a bat in his hands on a one and two counts well, as demonstrated their that's tough pitch to do anything with you.
Good luck, but hey, a high fastball all the sudden becomes really dangerous for a pitcher if it's not spotted above his own.
A little height difference makes all the difference.
Pulls this one in the air out to left.
Bets has a read on it, and that ends the inning.
So they breezed through this half of the inning.
Way played four full, and we are all tied at three apiece.
Stepping into the box, Will Smith comes into this at bat over one in the booth and now a curveball.
That's Lohan in the dirt for a ball.
It's two on one.
Sometimes it can be difficult for a pitcher.
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.
Not an easy pitch to lay off of.
But he did somehow, and he's got it. 23 and one.
You can bet they love Ball four here.
That gives the pitcher on deck an obvious bunt situation to move the runner in scoring position, a shot to second base and handled for the first out.
Now to the plate.
The picture Walker Buehler.
He popped out in his first trip.
Yeah, it didn't look good right there, just out in front.
You know, sometimes when a pitcher has great arm action, you're going to get that you're trying so hard to catch up to the high velocity.
If he shows that great arm action pulls the string on you, sometimes a pop up is gonna be the result, and this is swung on and missed.
So it's two up, two down to start the fifth.
I'll tell you, he's showing no signs of tired right now.
Still looks razor sharp or what I could tell.
So I think he might last a while longer.
We can keep this up into the box now.
Mookie Betts hit hard down the right field line, but that's a foul ball and try to get a fishing there.
But he won't offer and dirt, and it's back to even a two and two.
This is the fun guy.
Watch what? He's up there. Really.
Battles doesn't take any pitches off. He's a grinder.
Always seems to make it difficult on the opposing pitcher.
Groundball left side defence set up perfectly.
Throw in time and the side is retired.
123 Go the Dodgers halfway home title three.
And that brings in the power hitting shortstop Trevor Story as we move past the halfway point in this one and begin the bottom of the fifth weekly back to the mound Rhoda first is in time for the first out, one away here with bases empty and striding into place.
Next to be primal toppy here now the to to Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen, and he lost him here on three to that pitch. Misses.
It's ball four now that No.
Three and one now call didn't go his way on to one, but it's important here on 312 Still make a quality pitch.
You have to have the mind set that you're still the one in the driver's seat.
Three runs, four hits and one error in the ball game for the rocky so far in there, and it's full three and two.
I think it's a real possibility that they put that runner on first in motion that would help them stay out of that double play.
That would end the inning, but that's also kind of risky at the same time.
To pick high in the year down the right field line and foul.
Here's the three, and to a great pitch there is he couldn't get extended on that one, and he's down on strikes for the second out right now.
The doctor skipper up out of the dugout on his way to the mound.
And it would appear he's seen enough of his starter this afternoon, so we'll depart in the fifth with the go ahead run on base.
Didn't work the required five for the win, but he could still be hung for the loss Should that run come around to score.
Jimmy Nelson takes over here with their honor at first and two gone in the inning number.
No, Charlie Blackmon will be the first to freedom.
Here is he stands in with a runner at first and two away.
Three runs, four hits and one error in the ball game for the Rocky so far.
Did a good job to shorten up and protect the plate, and he'll have another shot at it. Here.
We ground her down the first base line, but this will get foul so they'll do it again.
Now the pay off pitch home after knees and called strike three one left for Colorado.
Five innings complete, all tied, 33 So stepping in Justin Turner will start things out for the Dodgers in their half of any number six lifted out towards straight away center field way.
They got it is top AEA one out, No digging in and looking for more Max Muncy.
He singled his last time up, bases your empty one man and now a curveball that's blowing in the dirt for a ball. It's two on one.
You know what I'm seeing here is a reluctance to throw the fastball.
It's like he feels he can't throw the ball right by right now.
21 grounded back up the middle and a diving effort there but will come up empty.
It's a base hit so frustrating as a pitcher.
You make a quality pitch on the inside, right there, trying to bust with envy.
Roni fights it off the other way.
You tip your hat to the picture, right? Dairy executed his pitch, but nice job by the offensive player fight.
It doesn't matter what it looks like.
A knocks and not, and there's more to now off speed.
Pitch misses here, and he runs it 23 and one.
You know, I kind of see why his e array is so high coming into this one.
He's just putting these guys in too many good hitter's counts that will catch up with you real quick.
Full count of Ballenger.
Three balls, two strikes This guy's got in 89 mile an hour changeup.
There was a time when 89 was a pretty good fastball and that Mrs Ball four.
So its first and second now with only one away.
When a guy homers off your early in the game, the last thing we want to do is challenge him and maybe haven't do it again.
He was a lot more careful with in there it comes manager, but Black out of the dugout, heading for the mound and he's gonna motion for the bullpen is that will be all for it starter this afternoon.
So we'll lead with a couple of runners aboard.
That his responsibility, meaning he'd be happy to get out of here with no decision.
Takes the mound trying to get out of this mess.
There are two on with only one way John Peterson will be his first assignment here is facing with runners at first and second and one gun first and second now, one man out fouled away another one to deliver this is lying left, and that's in their base.
Hit long throw to the plate.
But it's offline, so the run will score.
Guys, that was a nice job by the batter right there.
Was able to get his front foot down early.
Stay inside it, Drive it the other way.
Flight Now Corey Seager.
Ground ball, Foul down the left side, bouncer up the middle and that will get through into center field for a base hit.
And now he has trouble with it in center and on the error.
A run is going to score on.
It's off target and he'll be safe.
And third number.
Sometimes you got to tip your cap to the pitcher.
Spotted his pitch down the zone right there below.
The name offensive player was all over at the plate.
Gavin Luck's just off the outside that time laid off for a ball.
Everyone in the ballpark knows what the pictures intentions are in this situation.
Great job at the plate to lay off tough pitch in a good spot to to is slider that can't catch the outside.
I don't think he can afford another base runner here, so whatever pitch he feels best about, whichever one he feels most comfortable with.
That's the one expected to turn to pay off pitch on its way.
He got him, and it will probably take a base hit now to get that runner across from third.
So digging in now will Smith comes in over two thus far on and off stride that time, and it's one and two from the belt pitch swing and a miss is he chased with two strikes and that will retire the side.
So it's two runs on three hits, no errors and two left, 56 and seven slots due up in the bottom of ending number six.
Dodgers lead this 15 to 3.
Sam Hilliard will stand in here, hoping to duplicate what you get back in the second inning.
We flash back to take another look at a solo home run that helped get this offense rolling.
Okay, falling two strikes now, and a good sinker there gets him swinging for the first out.
It's always nice to keep a guy that has good wheels off face.
That's just what they did right there. Big strikeout.
Keep that guy off late now, Josh point is back up the middle and in for a base hit.
Stepping in now.
Dom Nunes won't go after the 21 sinker, and it's three balls and a strike.
Tony Walters, who represents the possible go ahead run here, waits in the on deck circle and he lays off here a nice job.
It's ball four first and second now with one away second.
So, a pivotal moment here, digging in now Tony Walters.
But a single here could reduce the deficit to only one runners on first and second with one away.
And this one's a little too far in to Lots of guys get too aggressive in a spot like this, but he's done a nice job of games. Count.
Look for him to put the ball in.
Play hard, missed in its even at 22 Don't expect too many more high fastballs in this one.
He is known for his sinker, keeping the ball on the ground swinging, the ball lined hard toward short.
But this is pulled in by the shortstop picture Daniel Murphy starting to loosen up in the on deck circle back with two on and two out here.
There's a line drive base hit to left field breaks on that runner at third, and that means the bases are loaded.
Now with two away, nothing fires me up more than watching it. Take a picture.
Gifts pitches away, batters able to keep his hands inside.
Try and do too much.
Just force feed.
This is on the ground is short.
Is he going to get out of this over the first? He does.
Get out of it and the inning is over.
He's leaving. Loaded.
They're still down, 53 Carlos Stephens is on to fit from the bullpen.
Now to start any number seven number.
Christine Keeler goes up on the benches.
She had here to start any Number seven heading out towards shallow right, coming in his Blackman, and he tracks it down.
Nice play for the first out, back to the top of the Dodgers order.
Digging in Mookie Betts.
He was a ground out victim last time up.
One and one count.
Here's the pitch, Estep says.
Comes it hitters with a good, hard fastball, one that's certainly fun to watch.
He's a throwback to kind of guys that he likes his fastball.
It's a good fastball, not the best fastball in the game, and he's not afraid to throw it.
You know what else? Many V.
He goes right at hitters, and it's fouled away.
Nobody on and he lays on.
So it's full now.
Three to 32 counts are using time to challenge the hitter, but I think he'll be careful here.
Shoot for the corner and if you miss and you walk him.
So what? That's better than him.
Putting one in the seats and he lost him here on 32 is that pitch misses.
It's ball four now that so a runner at first now with one away and digging into a plate will be Justin Turner runner at first year.
He's on the move, pulled high in the air, out to left field.
Hilliard is gonna get there is he backs up to put it away, and there are two gone now.
Next month, she scored after reaching on a single in his last time up two balls and two strikes.
Now that misses, and it's going to set up a big pitch now three and two three to two outs.
Runner on first.
Lots of possible outcomes on this pitch.
Now the pay off pitch home.
And he found this one off.
Another full count pitch home swung on in this strike. Three.
A as they hang on to their 53 lead, trying to gets the call from the pen to take over on the mound and start the home. Seven.
The last half of the seventh here.
Ready for another chance? Rytmel Topia.
It was a walk in his last trip.
Even though we're moving into the back into this game, they're only down by a couple of runs.
You know that old slogan, A loop in a blast.
They could certainly use that right now.
Inside and low to one couple of writing.
Starting pollution now in the bullpen.
Down three and one.
Yeah, well, down to you.
Better believe they gladly take a leadoff walk right here.
Anything to get a base runner on? Get that tight run to the plate.
The 31 There's a swing and a drive hit well out to right field.
And oh, you missed a home run by a matter of feet It's off the wall and he will make it there.
The Rockies Aaron business right away.
It's a leadoff double.
That's what you call a piece of getting down two runs.
He gets himself in scoring position and brings the tying run to the plate to see what they do with Base open here.
This one's getting interesting.
So now to the plate.
Nolan Aaron Nado No offer on that 12 balls and a strike.
Hey, this is a really pesky hitter, right? Here is a picture.
You really like to keep this guy off the basis.
This is a guy that kind of sets the tables for big innings.
Now the 21 fastball get on the ground is short.
Field it cleanly.
Throw pulls the first baseman off the bag, man.
There's just no excuse for a middle infielder to make a play like that, especially your shortstop.
Like a routine play.
But for some reason, he just pulled the first baseman off the bag.
It happens, but you never want to give a team extra outs.
Charlie Blackmon now, and he's looking to make something happen here with two on and nobody out well, early account expect him to look for a ball to drive.
It gets two strikes against him.
You'll need to change this planet.
Focus on moving runners up.
This game is too close to get greedy, can't keep weight back.
And he falls behind one and two, working for the punch out and the offering.
And he lays off pitch outside as they grow, even to to now.
Cutting action to that pitch is that's the first out of the inning.
This is a pitch.
I think we'll see a lot from him in this game.
Cutter darting and on the hitters in the opposite batter's box.
It could be a real effective pitch when it's located well, and that one was right there.
Make a matchup, moved here and bring on a southpaw to face the left handed hitter do up into the box.
Now Sam Hilliard skied into straight away, right Bell injures under it.
He's got it in. There are two down now.
Stepping into the box, Josh pointed with men invasion to away.
It feels like this.
Add back to go a long way for deciding this thing.
Base hit 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.
Two down runners at first and second get on the ground.
Third on, and that's through on the left.
A base hit the throw to the plate.
Not in time as the lunch scores and the lead is trimmed toe.
Dan as a former infielder, I apologize for nothing more frustrating for Upset Wars defender making an error and seeing that guy.
You know what? That's one of those cases as a pitcher hero.
There's not much you can do.
Listen, there are physical in their own mental airs, and you just have to as a pitcher.
Go ahead and look past that now and try to pick up your teammate and try to get it out.
You can plate now.
Dom Nunes count even a 212 Here's the two and 2.
5 hearted swing there is.
They tie him up inside for the third strike and the inning is over.
Rockies forced to settle for 1/8 inning, coming up, Dodgers out in front 5 to 4.
Now we're gonna have a conference at the home plate area, so it would appear that we'll see a double switch here.
McGee is in out of the Goldman now.
It will be inserted into the number six spot following the double switch.
Ian Desmond will also come on.
Now is he'll move into the pitcher's number nine holding the order here on that double switch.
Ballenger at the plate now comes in one for two with that home run he hit earlier.
Now the 21 picks and it goes down and gets this fastball and takes it high in the air to deep, straight away center gone toe lead off the inning.
It's a solo homer for Cody Bellenger, his second of the game, and it's now six to four.
And you know who's the happiest about that insurance run right now? The guys in the bullpen.
They can now breathe a little easier, knowing they have a bigger cushion to work with to close this one.
What into the box? Jaak Peterson, three.
Now a right hander, has started to get loose in the Colorado bullpen.
Holds off on the slider, and that's a good idea as it's Ball four.
The pictures warning how he didn't get that called, busted him inside.
On a 31 count, the young thought it was just a tad off the plate.
Tough to get the benefit of the doubt from the Empire.
When you fall behind an account like that, so a runner at first now with nobody out striding to the plate will be Cory Seager hit out toward second, scooped up to second for one on the first, and they get the double play now.
So bases empty now after the double play and that will bring in the second baseman Gavin Lux, to to gets him swinging.
Struck him out one for the Dodgers on the solo home run on.
Now to the bottom of any number eight.
It's the Dodgers six and the Rockies four now the skippers on his way out toward the home plate area.
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here.
Brian, come on now will slide into the seven spot in the lineup following the double.
Swift Hernandez is into the ballgame as well.
A shell slide into the pitcher's spot, hitting ninth, now on the double switch now batting Tony Walters.
We could really use a not hero for three in the game so far, one in two.
Now wait a fastball, and that's the first out.
Well, there's nothing like seeing a good power picture that has a good fastball.
What does he do? He just throws this good fastball right by brings the Express No chance to put that ball in play.
Now he and Dez High and deep to straightaway, right.
Is the right fielder still going on? Good bye.
This one ain't coming back.
Solo shot here to straightaway right field.
And this will make things interesting at this point.
It's now a 65 game.
Now Trevor Story found on and it never threatened.
It's gone full now, three into, you know, something to keep in mind there really burning through that bullpen.
And this is only the first game of the series.
Definitely could have an impact on the rest of the series, maybe even the whole week ahead, and he lays off full four.
So now the potential time run here is aboard strikes.
Great pitch in that situation.
He makes contact on that one, more than likely he's hitting into a double play and this gets on and quickly here and deflect often.
Tag gets one striding into the box.
Norman, Aaron, Otto.
Listen to this, he said.
Here comes 11 There's a swing and he sends a bowl high in the air in the left field on.
You will crash into the wall, but hold on to it there for the final out of the inning.
One more look at the final out rattler.
If ever there was one more baseball on MLB Network right after this, Brian Shaw interest from pen to start the ninth inning is trying to keep the school right where it is heading for the bottom of the ninth into the box.
He struck out swinging in his last trip to the plate.
He's got to put that behind him, especially with runners in scoring position.
Those punchouts will stick with you a little longer target, but this is low, too, and one Shaw, a six foot one inch right hander, he was taken in the second round during the 2008 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 they didn't miss with this pick, either.
You go in the high rounds and you carve out a career the way this guy has.
Now the 21 little chopper back to the mound.
Throw on to first for the out, and that is sound.
The ninth inning gets underway.
Next up for Los Angeles, Kiki Hernandez filed away.
Here's another two to what kind of babies.
Regardless of the outcome, you go back to the dugout as the offensive player and your teammates are loving on you for making that picture work and battling it out.
Neither guy given in here's the next one only battle for so long as he's finally set down here after an eight pitch at bat back to the top of the lineup, stepping in bets.
It was a walk in his last trip.
One run game here in the top of the ninth struck him out, so it remains a one run lead as they head into their final set of swing.
So go quietly here in this half inning, nothing more in the Dodger night onto the bottom one last shot for Colorado.
They're down just one.
Kelly Johnson takes the ball now in any number nine looking to close the door.
Yeah, next to be the number four batter for the Rockies.
He went down on strikes last time up.
Not an easy thing to do to score off the game's elite voters, but down by one at home, you've got a chance with that last at bat drilled down the line.
I believe your time runs gonna be in scoring position right away.
Is this is down for extra bases? Coasted into second with a leadoff double.
Was definitely struggling coming into this, But I think we could say that Gold Street is actually over.
That's his second hit of the game, and it goes for extra bases.
This game proved to be a huge turning point with possible time running second here, we're gonna have a pinch runner as they try to get a little more speed out there.
Come into the Blake now Sam Hilliard.
They go to work on getting that tying run home from second now the one in one pic taking any strike to This'd gonna be an interesting at that.
I think he has to be pitching for a strike out here, so we'll see what kind of sequence he uses.
12 Mrs Up Cutter.
And it doesn't make it back.
Draw the plan here to hit with the game on the line.
Payoff pitch one more time.
Lofted in the air out toward right center.
Dillinger will have plenty of room as he makes the catch, and there's a big out number two.
So striding in Dom Nunes to bring home that time run from second with Base it into the outfield.
Gets the win in relief his second of the year.
Kenley Jansen reports to save his 18.
So that's a wrap for us in this one.
