The show's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air should be a good one here this afternoon between the L.
A Dodgers and the Colorado Rockies.
Colorado Goto work on ending what's become an eight game skid.
First pitch is next.
Jeff Hoffman is the man on the mound for the fourth game of the Siri's.
What do we need to know here, Danny? One of the things that jumps out.
If you look at that statue, a very high whip coming into this start, one of the things he's gonna have to do a much better job keep traffic off the basis, keep the walks down, try to limit the amount of hits he's had a rough gold that so far this year.
Let's see if he can turn it around in this one.
So stepping in Mookie Betts, he will lead this one off today.
11 home hits this one hard the other way.
Rodgers brings it in, and there's one away striding into the box.
He's looking to get things going at the plate.
It has not been going his way of late.
11 swung on and missed in that strike to Huffman Features one of the biggest jackers in the game.
Got a ton of movement, bases her empty, one man out.
But that's easy to lay off, and it's back to even a two.
And to our temperatures should get us up into the seventies as we move along.
68 at first pitch here now the to to now a rocket deep down the line and left and that will get down out there for extra bases and he's ableto hustle his way up to second is you'll reach here with a to base.
It left his bad thought it might squirt file, but it hugged the line and found its way into the corner.
Thought it might be a little bit closer.
Played second, but he cruised in there with relative ease.
And now Max Muncy down low, two balls and a strike.
These Rockies guys, they've had a pretty rough go of it of late, and that's being kind.
They come in losers of eight in a row.
Yeah, Matty, if they're gonna find any way to dig themselves out of this current losing streak, then they're gonna have to down, shift a little bit, do the little things right.
Sam played good defense, turned double plays.
Don't give the other team extra outs.
And then somebody hit a gap er in a big spot and let everybody relax a little bit.
And there are the umpires assigned to this one.
Calling balls and strikes is Mr Carl Dixon.
Then this is an offensive players dream have called Dixon behind the dish.
He is tight on the corner.
He is zero and listen.
He makes you bring the ball ended the strike zone.
Normally high scoring games when Carl's behind the dish and a fastball fluid right by that fastball was way behind him.
Swing came through the zone.
I have to think he was looking for something off speed, and he just couldn't hold a trigger on that fastball.
Now Cody Bellenger and it's fouled away.
And that Mrs Ball four.
So its first and second now with two out.
That was a great battle right there.
He tried to get him to chase, but he'd laid off some really tough pitches and got a walker.
The cap to the batter that time.
Next up for Los Angeles JOC Pederson.
He's just hoping for something to go his way in this one.
And as you can see, it's not been the case of late.
Turner on second Bellenger at 1st 2 out in the inning, fouled off facing right handed pitching.
So far this season, Peterson is a batting line, resigning in the two thirties.
He'd be the first Italian.
He's not happy with his batting average this season, but he could beach in a variety of different ways.
Gonna miss that.
Retires beside, and that will do it.
Dodgers strand a couple.
It's the Dodgers, nothing.
Rockies coming up.
This is Major League baseball on the show.
Alex Wood is on the mound for the Dodgers in this contest and please act.
What do you got? Well, Madame Alex, don't like your fire your workers with wet wood.
This is one of the top young left handed pitchers in the game of baseball.
Sneaky, quick, funky arm angle 90 to 94.
One of the more underappreciated quality lefties in the game of baseball, Trevor Story steps in now has to take a look at the splits between April and May, from the wind up the 11 pitch.
No Nero Danny to sell a Dodger ball clubs.
They interplay here this afternoon, foreign to over the last six games, including a win last time out.
You have Maddie.
This team is beaming with confidence right now.
Three and go on a road trip and looking for a four game sweep.
That does not happen often in this game.
I could have been three and one.
Instead, it's two and two.
Hard hitting third only has some trouble with it, and they'll have no Playas.
He reaches first base, safely striding in Tyler, Nick Quinn, and he's looking to turn the page.
Bats been ice cold over the last eight or so ballgames.
Runner on first at Nipple the corner there, but missed two on one.
That's a great call right there.
Fastball away with a guy who's got some Jets on first base, almost like the hybrid.
Great for a catcher.
If that guy's running easy transfer throw to second base three and one of the Rockies left fielder.
Sometimes it can be difficult for 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.
Here's a bouncer foul to the left side and the cattle move ahead now to three and two Mrs.
So a single little walk and its first and second with nobody out always stop to issue a free pass, but especially troublesome.
When you give up a single right before that to start the inning, we'll see if he can figure out a way to wiggle out of this.
Here's Nolan Arenado.
Lifetime history with Alex Would comes in with six hits in 26 advance.
He's also hit a couple of home runs against him.
None at runners at first and second, and he lays off their ball.
So back to back walks have him in business here with nobody out.
Some guys take a little time to find the zone, but with the second walk in the first inning, it might be a little more than just settling in here.
Not sure how long of a least they'll give him, but they're not gonna let him walk the world out there.
And that will bring in Charlie Blackmon has got the bases loaded now with a chance to really do some damage, and he's one of those guys that they really rely on to come through in spots like this.
Met second on the team and runs batted in right, And he takes a cold strike.
Two weighing inside with.
That was a pretty easy take their the 22 pitch.
This is hit the other way out toward left field that's has a read on it.
He's there to make the catch.
And here comes the runner from third as this should get him on the board tag and he is out of place.
First run of the ballgame, Jim and on to out.
And that will bring up Brendan Rodgers ready with the 11 Keeping it down.
Here is it's 21 and two grounded softly to the right on the first, and the Rockies failed to cash in Is that ends the inning.
A couple of walks, but no damage.
We're off to the second scoreless on the show.
Next at the plate will be Corey Seager, first at Bat Forum.
In this one, it was one for four with doubled in the ball game last night.
Payoff pitch home, fouled away swing and a liner, and he's going to kick off the second with extra bases and this will find the wall deep in the corner.
And he's gonna get to second now with nobody out.
Let's slow this one down and take another look.
Great camera angle here, looking straight down the left field line.
You see him? Take that inside route to the ball, His hands stay back and he goes Apple to find himself at second.
Coming to the plate now Gavin Lux and there's a look at his home in Rhode splits.
So far this year, there's a ball low Mrs with the changeup, and he lays off again.
Bowl three in a great location that time on the corner.
Korean to now No one out with a runner at second.
You founded softly down the line toward first, but this will get foul so they'll do it again.
Another payoff pitch skied in the air to straightaway left.
Nick ones under it, and that's the first out of the inning and the runner, not tagging will retreat to second base.
Will coming to the plate.
You get to take his first cuts here.
Here is we're planning number two, swing and a miss on the breaking pitch to away.
Well, his struggles continue.
It's been a rough golden at the plate with watching this.
It's his rhythm and timing there just along, Even as a pitcher like I waas, you could tell these things and exploit.
So now to the plate, Alex would Dodgers pitcher trying to deal with one and two count at the plate.
Okay, I know it's the pitcher at the plate, but he's gonna grind it out right here.
Has got a chance to help himself.
And nothing's a bigger backbreaker to a team than watching the pitcher drive in a run swing and a miss in that ends back to back strikeouts.
Keep him out of danger through an inning and 1/2.
No score on the show.
Josh Clinton's is two for seven in the series so far.
11 fastball that Mrs I can't find his own there, and it's three and one.
Here is Ian Desmond, 31 too close for comfort, and he did a good job just to make contact.
This one's down to third.
One way you hear now to the plate.
Ian Desmond, bottom of the second year with no score and it wants tried that time, and it's one and two really ugly, a one swing there.
You've got to be hunting for the strikeout, knowing you have this kind, way off balance.
And he found this one off.
Here he comes again, 12 back up the middle, and that is through into center field for a one out single.
Nice execution right there.
Dan kept his front shoulder and kept his hands inside baseball.
Great Basin right there with skirt.
Sometimes, even when you make a good pitch, that ball is going to find a hole somewhere that would right up the middle.
Now the 32 pitch is a wave and a miss.
He struck him out.
Any time a picture locates a fastball on the inside corner, it's going to be a ballot.
That one was slot on and you had no answer for it.
Now Jeff Hoffman and it's fouled away.
Would sets 12 on its way.
Fouled off Mrs and even a two and two.
Wow, that's 40 pitches for him already.
This doesn't have the makings of a start that he's going to go very deep.
Even a two balls and two strikes.
Here's the pain.
Now he drops a changeup on a strike three called in a great pitch there to retire.
The side one left for Colorado will move to the third with no score.
So that will bring in Mookie Betts over one forum here in this one, and he pumps the fastball by here.
One and two now threw that fastball right by him.
He had no chance to get the barrel of that hot shot to third and handled for the first out.
So with one away now, let's quickly give you a look at the standings in the National League West entering play today, as you see where these two teams sit in relation to one another.
So the bases empty here with one away and digging in the plane will be Justin Turner.
No score to this point.
Get out towards second.
Rogers scoops it up.
Throw on the 1st 2 now.
Next up is Max Muncy, over one here in the early going.
Faces are empty here with two men out.
This will smoke the other way.
High and deep tow left into the bleachers and gone solo.
Run number 16 for him on the year and the Dodgers strike 1st 1 to nothing.
I think it's time to start pitching around this guy.
He's hit three home runs already in the Siri's.
I'm not sure what more they need to see, but this is not the guy I want to be pitching to right now.
Into the box now.
Strike Zone's getting a little inconsistent.
Now it's two and two.
Full count of Ballenger.
Three balls, two strikes.
Jaak Peterson would be next.
Nobody on count.
Still full three and two.
Payoff pitch one more time, and this misses for ball.
Walkie surrendered here in the 1st 3 innings, and I'm sure the manager is just fine with that.
I mean, it's better to battle a slugger like that to the end and end up walking him than serving on up.
Or he could really hurt.
Striding in John Peterson, runner on first with two away, and the good fastball there finds zonas.
The count goes full now.
Good spot for an R B.
I put the ball in play with the runner in motion.
He could score all the way from first lifted down the line in left, and this is gonna wind up a foul ball the next three to and another foul ball out of the stretch.
The 32 pitch home.
There's a swing and a drive hit well out to right field, not quite out of here.
It's off the out of town scoreboard.
Extend their lead.
Here is the runner.
Scores from first on time will be called.
Here is you see the pitching coach making his way after the mound to pay a quick visit at the plate for a cedar.
That Mrs for a bowl? Well, I think he's got to find a way out of this jam and limit the damage.
If he's unable to do that, this game could get away from him.
The pay off pitch frozen on the fastball never had a chance in the inning is over, so it's two runs here on two hits, with one of them being the home run well heading out of the home.
Half of any Number three.
It's the Dodgers to and the Rockies.
Nothing with Mark Rosen.
Dan, please ask Matt Vasgersian with you as Trevor Story digs into the right side of the batter's box to kick off the inning.
Now the 21 pitch call didn't go his way on to in 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 hitter's count all the way. Here it comes.
Oh, my, this ball is rushed.
Where will this one end up outta here? Into the visitors solo home run here off the bat of Trevor Story home a number nine on the year, and the Rockies have made this a one goal game.
Baseball has really changed.
Remember when leadoff guys guys just draw walks and steal bases? But that's not the case anymore.
Guys like this, they have pop in their bats.
They go deep in now.
Tyler, in a quick this is hit the other way out toward left field that's on the run and he tracks it down.
Nice play for the first out and with one gun in the inning.
Let's give you a look at the current standings in the National West entering play to see where the Dodgers find themselves in the division rings.
Nolan Aaron, Ondo He drew a walk his first time here.
Now the to To to be honest with you, I'm a little bit more afraid.
That guy on deck that the gun, it's up right now.
I'm on the mound.
I want this guy up right now.
He's the guy that's gotta beat me now.
The 32 pitch now a swing and a fly ball and it's a foul ball, the next three to late swing, but he's still able to get a lot of this one out to a deep right field, but that will stay in the park.
It's off the wall.
He'll reach second with one away.
They already have one home run, and I thought they had a 2nd 1 right there.
Not quite enough.
Behind it over a zit banged off the wall for a double.
He's giving up a fair amount of solid contact right now into the box.
Charlie Blackmon stays alive still 212 and he popped him up.
He holds it in without any problem.
And there are two away now with plate Brendan Rodgers.
Look to bring on that time run from second with base it into the outfield.
There's a fastball well off the plate for a for the guy on the mound.
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
He's thrown a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment line.
That's a base hit in the left field relay tag, and they'll get him in second with Side is retired, so two runs on three hits, including the home run.
No errors on No one left on base.
Three innings complete, and we are tied 22 Start of the fourth upcoming.
But first tidy Watney is standing by with a report that during the break I caught up with Dave Roberts, a Dodgers skipper, about his lineups performance so far, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together.
It's still pretty early in the game, but they've seen a lot of pitches already, and he thinks the two runs they pushed across so far is just the beginning, given the quality of the at backs they're putting together.
Okay, thank you, Heidi.
Standing in now.
Gavin Lux ball and two strikes.
Well, they've really had an answer for keeping him in check in this Siri's.
He's offered very little resistance with the bat in his hand.
So far, ball and two strikes.
Here's the pitch.
Two balls and two strikes.
Now right hander has started to get loose in the Colorado bullpen here.
Now the to to, and he pops him up, drifting toward the left side of the infield.
There to make the catch is Ah, Renato for the first out.
So striding forward now Will Smith was a strikeout victim in his first try.
Sometimes you just got a tip your cap to the guy on the mound.
He's getting paid to try and get you out as well.
Anytime it gets up there north of 78 pitch a bee's.
Sometimes it just comes down to pure execution.
Let's see if he makes the adjustment right here.
This is on the ground over to first and take it to the bag himself.
Now to the plate. The pitcher Alex would.
He's over one thus far, filed away bases your empty here with two men out, fastball swung on and missed.
And for the second time today, he's gone on strikes, Dodgers down in order, we'll go to the bottom of the fourth, all even at two apiece.
Welcome back to Coors Field in Denver as we check in with 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.
It's still pretty early in the game, but they've seen a lot of pitches already, and he thinks the two runs they pushed across so far is just the beginning, Given the quality of the at bats they're putting together.
All right, Heidi, Thank you.
Ready to go in the bottom of the fourth.
Riding in once again.
It's He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far, unable to get the bat around in time and the count evens that two and two pitch on the way started to go.
Did he hold up in time? Yes, says the first base umpire.
It's full three now, and that misses for ball four.
Leadoff walk that starts to bottom of the fourth.
Wow, you know he's not happy with that call.
When it crossed the line, it sure looked like a strike to me.
Never seem to catch a ton of the plate.
That's a tough way to give up walk, but he's got to put it behind him now.
He reached on a single in his first try to to hot shot to third second for one first, and it's a double play second.
They've hit into in the 1st 4 innings, and there are two away now.
It's hard to do anything with picks like that.
That's below the zone, and if you do do anything with it most of the time, this will be the result.
A double play on a good pitch down in the zone at the plate.
Dom Nunes comes into this at bat over one in the ballgame on its way is pitch number 75.
Nobody on in the air to straight away, right? Bellenger will reach out with one hand to make the catch on the move, and that ends the inning.
Rockies air down quietly.
We'll head to the fifth, tied at two.
My roadie. It's a right understanding.
Six foot even will take over the pitching duties here, back to the top of the order now.
And that will bring up Mookie Betts.
11 home weak ground her back to the mound and the fifth inning will start with ground out, one away, one away here with bases empty and that will bring up the third baseman, Justin Turner, to deliver on 21 This is in high in the air, out toward left center.
Desmond is there to put it away for out number two, and that will bring up the versatile Max Muncy comes in one for two with that home run he hit earlier.
That last at that.
When he 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 and try not to throw right down the middle of the plate.
And ah, Renato will make the catch to retire the side.
123 Go to Dodger.
Halfway home tied to a piece.
Will grab a bat hitting for the pitcher here.
Number skied into straight away, right? Bellenger is under it, and that's the first out of the inning.
Rockies lineup turns over and to the play.
Trevor Story When deep last time up.
Yeah, this kite flexed its muscles in that last at bat way.
Heard that he has good power.
That last bomb had to go well over 400 feet.
He hit it a long way swing and a miss on the change up in their to gun.
There's the perfect.
It's right there.
He had used it yet in this at bat.
And what does he do, where he uses it, pulls the string and gets the big strikeout at the flight now Tyler Nay, Quinn.
If you're at the plate right now, you have to realize who's on deck.
I guarantee you some things over the heart of the plate.
You have to be aggressive in the zone right here.
31 heading out towards shallow right, giving chases.
Bellenger, you can't get there is it falls in.
Oh, that's just what you want to do.
Keep the harsher on.
He's given a couple of months early already in this game, and now it gives up to outside.
You have no chance right there.
You want to make this guy work.
You want to try and get into their tennis.
Quickest possible throughout the answer.
So, man at first with two out in a two to ball games, Mrs.
And it's going to set up a big pitch now.
Three and two, 3 to 2 out.
Lots of possible outcomes on this pitch swing and a miss on the knuckle curve.
And the inning is over.
One through five, all, even at 22 McGee takes over to start the sixth inning on the mound.
Tony Bellenger at the plate now will start things out for the Dodgers in their half of any number six now at the plate.
JOC Pederson, one for two with a double on the ledger so far.
11 Some action out of the bullpen.
Couple of right handers starting to loosen up.
Two runs, four hits.
No errors for the Dodgers thus far.
Now, a swing and a deep drive to right.
Blackman going back and this one is gone.
Ah, home run solo home run there for Jack Peterson.
Seven home runs for him on the year now, and it's given the doctor now a swing, and it gets him to pop it up or in auto in foul ground, and no one will track it down 12 out in front as he rolls over in two seconds.
And there's out.
Number two ready now.
Gavin Lux, he's hit.
Listen, is to add bats so far.
Now the three and two pit get down the line first and we'll step on the bag himself in the inning is over.
One for the Dodgers on the solo home run bottom of the sixth coming up, and Los Angeles has taken a three to leave.
We want Stripling entered to do the pitching in the bottom of the sixth for number, bottom of the inning now, so now it will be the four hole hitter Charlie Blackmon.
He flew out in his last at bat from the wind up 11 pitch.
You well struck down the right field line, but this a land fouled as he didn't miss by much.
Two balls and two strikes now and now.
Some action and that Dodgersbullpen is a left hander has begun to get loose to to good swing on a tough pitch, and he'll stick around to see another one into the wind.
Up here comes the 22 pitch, well above the letters with the fastball.
That time, that was kind of a gift to the hitter who's up.
They're probably thinking of protecting on two on two, but when you watch a ball that high out of the strike zone, it's obviously easy to take that one.
Muncie is over, and he puts it away for the first Brendan Rodgers.
Next, he was thrown out at second, trying to stretch a base into a double last.
DFL is not sure if he got the go ahead from his base coach or not.
Can't believe be dead, but it looked like he was running in mud right there.
Count now a two on one well hit to right, but a foul ball.
Three twos are scored here in inning number six.
Here's a pitch swung on and missed one and two now breaking ball called just a bit low ground ball right side.
It's flagged down deep in the hole.
Throw gets in there from short right field.
A nice play, and that one ends the inning.
Nothing doing here.
This half were through six full.
It's the Dodgers three, and the Rockies to Davis is on to pitch from the bullpen now to start any number seven number ready once again, will Smith over to from him so far in this one bouncer to the left side, and the throw to first is in time.
So the leadoff man has gone here to start any number seven.
Chris Taylor will get the call.
Here. Is he'll hit for the pitcher.
He doesn't want any part of that cutter, and it's full three and two.
Ready to deliver the full count pitch.
This one has hit a ton out to center, racing back the center fielder and this one bounds around against the wall, hit the corner and tries for third relay throw, but he is in there with a triple in most parts of the league.
That would be a round tripper.
I mean, he consisting probably more than 400 feet.
He'll have to be content with a triple.
Has to feel good about the way he hit it, though.
Here's Mookie Betts.
Not much in the way of productivity from him so far, but he's got a chance to come through here in a crucial spot.
Yeah, it's time now that he has to put the rest of those bats behind because none of that matters.
If he could clutch up when it really counts to 11 on its way high and deep to center field, the ball that's carrying on the warning track.
He makes the catch and now the runner from third scores to give them a very important insurance run.
Every team is looking for that insurance run late in a game that run right there gives them a two run lead heading into the late innings, digging in once again, Justin Turner bases empty and two gone following the sacrifice fly ball and two strikes.
Here it is, and he lays off the pitch outside as they draw even a two and to face is your empty here with two men out.
Hit hard down the right field line, but foul and the pitch.
When you're playing close games like this, base runners mean everything so it can ill afford to start giving away free passes high in the year down the right field line.
But this is gonna wind up a foul ball ground ball sent back up the middle, and that's in for a base in these two for four.
Now, Dan, this guy's on fire.
Used to say all the time.
It's about 158 BC 200 babies where you start figuring out what type of season you're gonna have.
He's obviously in May, and he's on 50 He's been locked in from Day one of this season.
It's continuing right now, anything that is around the strike, so he feels he could get the barrel to it.
He continues to hit line drives next month, he will stride it again, and before he takes his cuts here, let's flash you back to the third inning.
This was just a solo shot, but it definitely helped get this offense going right, breaking ball that time.
That misses out of the zone.
Now the 21 runs a bit inside for a ball.
I love the ability to hold up right there, specially with count leverage.
I know you want to get aggressive in the strike zone, but he was able to notice that that wasn't his pitch.
Bounced to first reined in, and we'll step on the bag himself and the inning is over.
It's a run on two hits here for L.
1/7 inning stretch.
Time here in the booth, Dodgers four and the Rockies to Joe Kelly gets the call from the pen to take over on the mound and start the home seventh number.
Go now with Blake.
Ian Desmond one for two.
He's singled and grounded out so far, 21 And here's a fastball taken too low and he works the count of 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.
31 swung on and missed, and that's a full count Now.
Three balls and two strikes.
Get it ready, big boy.
This guys throwing three digits right here.
The best way I can help the fans is 90 to 92.
You can usually see seems 90 to 95.
It starts to really quick and up on you over three digits.
You're seeing a white blur, and this ball's pretty well struck high and deep to left field with bleachers and gone solo home run that time for Ian Desmond, home run number five on the year as its trimmed to a 43 game. Now.
So now with plate Dom Junior up in the zone for him and he takes a called strike two.
Who that was some gas triple digits on the radar gun lay off with that time back, even to to swing and a miss is he couldn't connect down the two seamer, and that's out.
Looked to me like he had the right idea with swing on that pitch.
He just didn't get it back to the zone in time pitch was away.
Letting it deep may be trying to take it the other way, but it got too deep was by him by the time his barrel could get in the correct position.
Your Daniel Murphy.
We'll pinch hit here, and he's the potential tying run.
Ground it back up the middle that gets threw for one out base hit.
This is where the manager makes his money right there.
Stand as a picture.
When a guy had Jets on the base path, No doubt about it.
This is This is a very difficult spot.
Your one hit away from getting right back into this game and this game up.
You're gonna have to really think about putting somebody on first that might be able to score a ball in a gap here.
Now the to to swung on and missed strike three.
That's a big strike out there with the tying run over at first base.
Now with two outs, because a lot more difficult to manufacture that guy home Probably need a ball in the gap to give him a chance.
So go to the bullpen now, and it will be the left hander here to face the upcoming left handed batter.
One ball and two strikes.
Now free runs, eight hits, No errors in the ball game for the Rockies thus far, and that Mrs two and two strike three called is he can't get the bad off his shoulders.
Rocky strike, for one.
And it comes on this solo home run.
We're through seven this afternoon.
It's the Dodgers four and the Rockies three.
Ryan Sean been summoned from the bullpen issue.
Do so to start the eighth.
Next to be the Dodgers cleanup hitter Cody Ballenger hit the ball pretty well in his last at bat, but it resulted in a line out.
Yeah, pretty unlucky right there.
Maddie squared up a fastball nicely, and that's all you can do.
You just want to be on time for the heater, and he's prepared for this next day.
Baby hard hit toward the hole and the throw on first take care of him, so he's thrown out by the only man standing on the left side of the infield.
One away, John Peterson standing yet again as we flash back to the middle, heading this was a turning point here, a solo home run.
There was really one of the key at bat to the ball game for this, and I can't catch the corner here, so he's behind three and one.
Sean was known as a short relief specialist.
A guy who came in got wondered, lifted the other way, left center center fielder giving Chase.
He can't get there, so the inning will continue and he'll make it the second base now with two gone.
Well, he was definitely struggling coming into this one, but I think we could say that Cold Streak is officially over.
That's his second hit of the game, and it goes for extra bases.
This game proves to be a huge turning point for him into the box.
Gavin Lux pops him up toward the left side of the infield, and nothing will come with a two out double as the inning is over.
And it remains a 43 games.
No bottom of ending number eight set to go.
Now Norman Aaron on.
Oh, he's working on a one for two games so far.
This things far from over.
Even though we're moving into the back end of this game on Lee, 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.
12 is laid on for ball, too.
Pitch on the way.
It hard to the right side follow.
I had to sit back on the change up, and they did a good job to get the battle on that one.
2 to 1 more time is looked at in the count moves, and this ball's pretty well struck high and deep to left field.
That one is out of here.
This'll game is solo shot here to left and we are tied again, way out towards home plate area.
And I believe that means we're gonna have a double switch here.
Come on now and slide into the seven spot in the lineup following the double switch your hand.
It's into the ballgame as well and slide into the pitcher's spot, hitting ninth.
Now on the double swath into the box.
Now Charlie Blackmon ball and two strikes training.
A former member of the Oakland A's was signed as a free agent in the middle of last season.
Yeah, I know he expected to get a longer term deal that these are the facts right now.
he is on a one year deal and he is gonna have to produce.
If he is going to get that multi year he's been looking for come off season, it's taken several inches below the zone.
In fact, now action in the bullpen is their closer starts to get loose out there.
No ounce, nobody on lifted the other way down the left field line.
And that will end up a foul ball.
Another trying to to swing and a miss is he ran the fastball right by him for the first stepping up.
Now Brendan Rodgers was retired after popping out his last at bat.
He's got a lower his sights a little bit right now.
We talk a lot about this.
The elevated heater we're seeing.
It's so much in today's game.
He's gotta find a way to make this picture work down in the zone.
Just a little bit more swing and a drive sent out toward the gap.
Felons you're looking up.
Go on into the home bullpen for a home run, so that's his first home run in the big leagues, and it's fair to say it's a moment he'll never forget.
Well, there's no doubt about that.
People ask him 50 years now we hit it off of him.
What state and he was playing in and you'll remember it all.
He'll probably remember what kind of ***** of what's to.
We get the ball back so that can go in his trophy case forever.
Now Josh Point is pulled high in the air out to left field.
Bets has a read on it.
There are two down, stepping in and ready for another shot.
Ian Desmond homered earlier and is two for three. To this point.
This guy's been ads advertising.
We heard that this guy could get its foot down.
He could get would on a bullet.
That last pitch in that last baby That was triple digits Maddie be.
And he still turned it around.
It's one and two, in my opinion, one of the toughest pitches in the game to square up just a heavy sinker with good downward action.
Now a little pop up off toward the first base sign.
Muncie is there to make the catch, and the side is retired, so they get a couple of runs on two hits, no errors and no one left aboard.
Ninth inning. Coming up.
It's the Rockies five and the Dodgers four.
Now we're gonna have a conference at the home plate area.
So it would appear that we'll see a double switch here.
Scott over who comes out of the bullpen to shut things down here in the night number porting God old now playing next for the Dodgers.
Will Smith? No hits in three tries so far.
He struck out No.
11 home waves and misses for strike number two.
Now, as a right hander begins to throw out there, 12 is taken for ball, too.
Not close with that wound its way above the strike zone.
It's been a great job so far by the eight hole hitter.
If he finds a way to get on base, this could spell for a huge swung on.
And this really fooled in that time for the first.
When you're closer, comes in and strikes out, the first guy who faces everyone on the team can kind of take a deep breath.
Still have two more outs to get, but retiring that leadoff guy is always a huge when you're trying to shut the game down one run game here in the top of the ninth in front of the changeup, and he can't keep it fair.
Two strikes on it now, Two balls and two strikes now swinging a soft liner on first and now the Dodgers were down to their final out.
Turns over now and set to go.
We could really use a not hero for three in the game so far.
11 swing and a liner throw to first Air will be in time for the final out, and Rocky finally found their way back into the win column.
Is this Ball game is over, and everyone on the team could finally breathe a little bit easier tonight.
They finally snapped that eight game losing skid.
Hopefully, they can get on a roll now.
One finished today, 5 to 4.
The final score.
Colorado Rockies get the win on the heels of four home runs.
Brian Shaw earns his third win of the year in relief.
Scott over closes the door for the save, his 12th of the season.
So that just about does it for Mark Derosa.
