I know that we got it.
I might even guarantee it with me of the term e bring to a pair pledging persons who got the MBE on a mixed at sea and wind plan form.
Now you're our number three.
Once you come to me, I got no Is there a reason there was a kind of head? There would be one conversations out of state They have somewhere we from our MLB network's coverage of Major League Baseball is on the air tonight.
Game two of this three game series between the L.
A Dodgers and the New York Mats.
It's gonna be fun marveling at two of the best in the game, and it's next on MLB network.
Marcus Stroman gets the starting nod for the Mets and please act.
What's the word on him? Hey, Matt will get Look at a guy that's really dependable.
Last three starts E. R. A.
0 and that's a pretty good pitching.
Minimizes the amount of walks, keeps his hits down, and if he can do more of the same of that, he should have some pretty good fortune in this one here today.
So that will bring in Mookie Betts.
Get a started in this one under the lights, spoils another one, and this is exactly what you're looking for out of your leadoff hitter.
A little chilly but not unbearable tonight.
55 degrees here at first pitch, another payoff pitch.
Bounce to first, and you take this to the bank himself and there's your first out of the ballgame.
So the bases air empty with one man gone and digging in the play will be Justin Turner, 11 home sent on the ground, out to second.
There's no, and that's the second out.
Next up is Max Muncy on.
There's a look at his home in Rhode splits so far this year.
Nobody on they haven't played perfectly is it's hit on the ground.
Field it cleanly.
Throw in time and the side is retired.
123 Go to Dodger, and now the Nets offense will go to work for the first time. No score.
Clayton Kershaw is on the mound for the Dodgers in this contest.
Any thoughts? Flower talk about a number that jumps out at this guy's whip, which has walks that hits the innings pitch is less than one coming into this start.
That's not an easy thing to do.
That tells me one thing.
Not only is his stuff good, but he wipes people out.
This is a really good picture, stepping in a med Rosario.
It lead things off here in the bottom half of the first, and they'll try to get him fishing.
Their body won't offer in dirt, and it's back to even a two and two.
This is foul right side, 2 to 1 more time, swung on and missed.
He got him on strikes, and that's really disappointing for a guy that has wheels right all.
He wants to get on base and take advantage of the strength of this game, which is his speed, but with a strikeout right there.
Can't get on first base if you strike out.
So now to the plate.
Brandon Nimmo and a swing and a miss is they got him with the slider.
To away the main job of the number one and two headers is to set the middle of the order up.
That opportunity do similar damage.
So when you strike both of them out, you're putting yourself in a pretty good position to make it through the teeth of the lineup.
With that, a whole lot of stress in now Alonso could have been three and one.
Instead, it's two and two.
So let's take a peek of the umpiring crew in this one.
Behind the plate is Matthew Ross.
Oh, you better be ready to swing with Matt Ross behind the dish.
Yeah, you know, coming into this one, you better pull the trigger.
If something's close, Matt Ross is gonna punch your ticket.
Muncie gets him.
And with that bill in the inning, he played an inning.
No score here on MLB Network.
Second inning set to go on.
Next to battle be the outfielder Cody Bellenger from the wind up 11 pitch drilled down the line.
But this is a foul ball.
That's the count.
Hold steady and one and two Here.
Come that hit him.
Let's hope he's OK and they are able to get the out at first.
But more importantly, let's hope he's OK on the mound on time now to see quite where that got him, and it appeared from up here at least, and his actions on the field confirm it.
It looked like it got him on its drive leg, which could be problematic, of course, foreign.
But from the ways trying to walk it off, I think he's going to try to continue digging in Jaak Peterson as we take a look at the splits between April and May 32 pits left center base hit, running hard.
He's digging for second and he'll reach second with one away.
Everyone knows that this guy's numbers are not where he wants them to be so far this year.
But you never know by that swing.
He looked fluid and confident, driving that pitch for a double.
We'll see if that gets him going into the box now.
This is on the ground over to first, and you take this one back for the out.
But meanwhile, the runner will move up 90 feet to third base.
So digging in now, Gavin Lux and for him will have to think a turnaround is coming, clearly not going his way of late.
Ready with the 11 lying toward the alley and left center and they're gonna hit the board first tonight is this falls down for extra bases and they're going to take a one.
Nothing lead as the run comes across to score.
So much of this game is situational hitting guys.
You've got to find a way to pick your teammates up when you're given the chance and he doesn't try to do too much right here.
He just takes what's there safely on second and his buddies high fiving teammates in the dugout.
Too late now, Will Smith swung on and missed, And that's the final out of the inning.
Dodgers get one in the inning on the R B I double, we'll go to the bottom of the second.
It's now one nothing.
L A last half of the second set to go and standing in the outfielder Michael Conforto, now the one in one picks, swung on and missed for strike number two.
And even at two and two.
Now the pitch J.
B. Davis will be next.
Here's the 32 and he takes ball four leadoff man's aboard here to begin the home half of the second.
And don't forget, he lost his last time out, so he wants to get off on the right foot here.
The last thing he wanted was to walk the leadoff with plain JD Davis, get his first opportunity in this one aboard here first with nobody out.
We'll have to give credit to him on the mound for not letting that previous pitch get wanted it, but he didn't get the call.
But I love how he didn't let it affect him when he comes right back with another good pitch and gets the punch out.
Stepping in now Robinson Cano and this one's in the dirt.
Holds is the count moves to 21 set by Kershaw.
Now the pitch swings and misses throw down in time as he just gets the tag.
Could have been a hit running there.
You kind of have to make contact.
Goes to work out.
He didn't and his teammate was hung out to dry it ***, and he found this one off, filed away.
Here's a little chopper up the middle.
He's aboard easily.
That's great hustle right there, out of not everybody getting it right at a shoot from step one.
But I have to ask you, frustrating executing a pitch.
There's an infield.
You could read that right off the bat. It's official.
You could read the angle.
You know that that ball is going to be hit on the ground and you're thinking deep down inside.
Okay, there's a quick out.
It just wasn't meant to be at the plate.
Wilson Ramos, Dandy Row.
You check out this God your team is they interplay here tonight or in two over the last six games, including a win last time out? Yeah, Matty, I think if you would've asked the manager of this team 1st 5 games at his road trip, you're going to go for him. One.
He would have signed that blood.
So let the let the guys continue to play the way they've been playing.
Everything is going nice, right? Two and two to the Mets catcher.
Really deceptive changeup right there.
It died right before the plate, and he was left reaching for air 22 Here it is heading out towards shallow right.
Belle injures under.
It makes the catch and that will retire the side.
Some of our nation's young minds and future leaders here in attendance.
X more baseball on MLB network right after this into the box.
Now, Clayton Kershaw, 91 and to do, uh, 11 fouled off.
Here it comes again.
12 pulls this one into the air, out into right field.
Nemo is there to put it away for out number one.
And with that, we give you Look at what's happening in the n l East race.
Now he bets he got on top of one was a ground out victim last time.
And it looked like a sinker in this last baby that got him roll over.
Kind of similar situation right here.
Similar stuff on the mound.
Look for them to try and get him to do exactly the same thing as his last.
Maybe he's got a fight to get it elevated just a little bit more.
That's his first base.
It making one for two now, just in absolute laser, that time screaming off the bat, if you will and showed Frank tells us it went out of 112 miles an hour.
Those of the line drives you can hear is they go by.
So now to the plate.
Justin Turner breaking ball that time that misses out of his own big, sweeping breaking ball right there. Good pitch.
But if he wants to get him to swing at it, you'll have to bring it in a little bit closer to the strike zone.
Max is on the move, high in the air, out to center field.
Conforto is there now, and he has it to gone, and that will bring up the versatile Max Muncy.
He's over one after grounding out in his only trip to the plate so far, one and one. Here it comes.
One ball and two strikes the count.
Two balls and two strikes now to out with a man on first and a sinker dips too low there into the dirt.
In fact, 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 on a good at bat.
That time is he lays off for Ball four, and as a result, that will move a runner up into scoring position.
Now with two away.
He did not want to let the hitter off the hook with two outs, and now he's got a runner in scoring position to deal with.
So two on with two away.
And that will bring forward Cody Ballenger set and the 11 now a bowl lying to the left side.
But this is a foul ball from the scratch.
The 12 in the dirt here job corralled as quickly as the runners hold on to down runners at first and second.
Full count of Ballenger.
Three balls, two strikes for the guy on the mound.
This is one of those innings where nothing comes easy.
He's throwing a bunch of pitches, and this A B hasn't been any different, definitely laboring at the moment.
Way hit sharply on the ground.
You know, Fields it cleanly first, and the Dodgers come up with nothing that ends the innings.
No runs a hit to left.
We'll head out of the home, half of ending number three Dodgers out in front one to nothing.
So here's U N Assess witness.
He did not play last night, but clearly back in the starting nine for this one, Kershaw delivers a to to, and Kershaw can't find the target.
He's running as far as it could go.
Now it's three and two.
You can bet they love Ball four here.
That gives the pitcher on deck an obvious bunt situation to move the runner into scoring position and good patients exercised as he works out the walk to lead off the home half of the third.
And that's what you want from your leadoff hitter shows some great patience and discipline, making the picture labor to start the game.
The result is a leadoff walk in a chance to make some early noise standing in Marcus Stroman.
Here comes the won one, and they'll indeed have the picture squaring around, and he puts this one down and off balance.
Throw beats him it first, and that's a tough play.
Riding in once again Ahmed Rosario.
He'll look to bring home that time, run from second with base it into the outfield on a rope to the second baseman, but the runner is back in time to avoid a double play.
Here's Brendan Nemo 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 babies, sometimes it just comes down a pure execution.
Let's see if he makes the adjustment right here, hit out toward second.
He's got it nearly time.
So despite the great efforts, that looks like a base it away at the middle of Nice job there by the second baseman to get to it and make that jump throw to first base, one of the tougher plays in our game.
A lot of great second baseman's in our sport make this look easy.
But I tell you what.
It's not to throw the ball first base while your entire body and mo mentum is heading towards left Fields one of most difficult things to do in our sport.
He got him and exhale as he's out of the jam and the inning is over to left.
For the Mets, it remains one.
Welcome back to Flushing, Queens.
Before we get back to baseball, let's check in with Heidi.
During the break, I caught up with Dave Roberts, a Dodgers skipper, about his lineups performance so far and flat out he was very pleased with the quality of their at bats.
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.
Thank you, Heidi.
All set for the start of the fourth and in steps of former World Series hero, the outfielder JOC Pederson still to into and the pitch pulled toward right center field center fielder on the run.
He makes the catch a great effort to get there and record the first out of the inning.
One gun now in the Dodger fourth.
Striding to the plate.
Only Cory Seager ready with 11 pitch.
It's softly on the ground.
First, he's right there, and they'll take it to the bag himself for the out.
Stepping up to the plate.
Gavin Lux, R B I.
Double is what he was credited with his first time around, and he's got to build off that last.
Maybe he battled.
Usually when you battle, you get in that swing mode.
A lot of pitches, you'll swing at the rosin bag and the throw is in time to get him to retire.
The side Dodgers down in order, but they're up one to nothing, ready to go in the bottom of the fourth.
And that will bring up the outfielder Michael Conforto swing and a miss their two and two.
This guy's been throwing the ball great so far, but it's gonna be tested here.
45 and six coming up.
This part of lineup takes strike three called on the fastball.
Well, it's still early, but it's also worth noting that he'd be in line for the win if this keeps up as we take a look at the league leaders in games one season.
And as you see, he's right up there among league leaders in that department, digging in for his second at bat, JD Davis, looking to put the ball in play here.
He went down on strikes in his first at bat, kind of shocked.
They got blown away with a fastball.
You could tell he was laid on that one, and we'll see if he tries to cheat to something that's a bit.
That's one of the toughest pitches.
The layoff hard breaking ball at the back foot, tough take on a terrific pitch.
He's fallen behind.
Now three and one teams been struggling on offense.
Let your d work for you right here. Pound zone.
Three and two, one out.
Nobody on got him on the good slider there.
Swung on and missed Aziz down on strikes for the second time.
Tonight, I'll tell you, it's hard to get more of a confidence boosting striking of the best hitters in the lineup.
Back to fact, the fact he's looking really sharp right now.
Standing in now.
It's one and two.
I'm absolutely shocked.
He took that pitch right there, right in the wheelhouse.
That's when you gotta let go on and he lays off pitch outside as they draw.
Even at two and two.
Pretty good breaking ball.
Lay off right there. Pitching.
I think this guy might be sitting on something off speed, looking to set down the side on strikes.
Here it comes, and he struck him out its seventh of the ballgame, and that ends the inning.
Mets go down 123 They're down one.
Nothing ready for another chance.
Will Smith here look to bounce back after striking out his last time up.
He's got to put that one behind him, especially with runners in scoring position.
Those punchouts will stick with you a little longer.
11 lying towards center field and that find some outfield grass.
It's a base it so the Dodgers get their leadoff hitter on base to kick off the inning.
Dan, how hard is it to massage your way through such a deep lineup? I mean, even the 89 hitters, solid big league players.
You know, Mark, these days you're not seeing a lot of defense of specialists in the infield or outfield urine, that starting lineup these days.
There's a pretty good job you could swing back into the box now.
Clayton Kershaw one run, four hits, No errors for the Dodgers thus far, and he pulls this one back in time to and to still showing, but with two strikes.
But he pulls it back three and two.
Yeah, Now you've got a guy out there trying to give you an out by Bunning, so the last thing you want to do is waste pitches and maybe put yourself in a situation where you could walk up from the stretch and this is taken here for Ball four, the second walk Kershaw has allowed in the outing.
Huge innings have begun, with much less I could tell you that first and second, no outs in the gun.
The bump really needs to strike out.
Or a double play right here.
Back to the top of the order now and up next.
One of the terrific talents in the game, Mookie Betts.
None at runners at first and second to one.
Now the movie has to be a challenge coming up here.
He probably doesn't want to flirt with loading the bases that's back toward the mound.
This will be a tough turn, however.
One there, but no real shot at two.
Is he safe? Easily at first, So they avoid what could have been other, possibly double play there.
Yeah, that credit batter for busting out of the box and hustling down the line instead of getting mad at himself for rolling over on a ground ball.
It's little things like that that could change the whole game.
Stepping up now.
He flew out in his last at bat.
Here's the 21 with one out and runners on the corners.
Some managers like to hit run here.
It's a little risky, but it could help you stay out of the double play if it's well executed.
One run, four hits, no errors for the Dodgers thus far.
Swings through it for strike number two with two strikes now, runner at first.
Do you go for the strikeout? Is still looking for the double play ball.
Good time to try to put the ball down in the strike zone.
You can either get a strikeout or potential double play ball swing, and there it goes.
He got all of that wall and goodbye.
This one ain't coming back.
So a three run shot toe left center fourth home run for him on the season as the Dodgers have increased their lead now four to nothing.
When you're facing and in Leeds Starter, you know, runs air going to be at a premium.
I don't know if this shakes two starters confidence, but you know what it does.
It certainly boosts the confidence of the guys in your lineup.
Blake now Max Muncy ball and two strikes, and it looks now like right handers begin to get loose in the Metsbullpen, still only one out in the inning.
Good bite to that sinker as he gets him to swing through it for racking up to the job of making and chase of pitch for the strike out there, that's the advantage of getting ahead on account.
You could really four sitters to expand their zone and protect.
And when they're in that mode, getting them to go after a pitch they can't do much with becomes a lot easier.
There's Ball four.
And don't forget he gave up a long ball earlier this sitting so you can understand why he wasn't too aggressive with him there when he got him 23 and one.
He wasn't too anxious to challenge him.
Now the New York managers up off the bench on his way to the mound, and we're going to see a pitching changes that's going to do it for his starter here tonight, So he'll depart here in the fifth after working just four and 2/3 and he's on the hook for the L unless this one turns around.
Paul Seawall takes over here with the runner at first and two gone in the inning number.
John Peterson will be the first to greet him.
Here is, he stands in with a runner at first and two away.
Three runs already home here, and it's fouled away.
3 to 2 outs. Runner on first.
Lots of possible outcomes on this pitch and Mrs Ball four.
So he comes out of the bullpen and immediately walks.
The first man e faces.
Well, that was a slider in a 32 count.
It just didn't tempt him enough to get a good swing, a good job of pitch recognition and knowing the strike zone to draw the free pass there.
Here's Corey Seager, three across so far in the inning and another two out there on base.
Yeah, Matt, this innings really starting to get away from them on the defensive side of the ball, stranding.
The rest of those guys out here feels absolutely essential for them at this point.
Two men around with two men out swinging a ground ball to third.
Throw on the second for the force in the side is retired.
My goodness, that these folks are not headed for a career on Broadway.
Don't touch that remote more on MLB network right after this.
Welcome back for the bottom of the fifth.
Here's Heidi Watney, Matt.
During the break, I caught up with the Mets manager to discuss his thoughts on his club's offense so far, and overall, he's really happy with the at bats they're putting together, he said.
The high pitch count they've run up is a result of a lot of great battles at the plate by his guys.
And he's not wrong.
So far, they've worked five full counts in there at that.
Okay, Thank you, Heidi.
Bottom of the inning now and next is the catcher Wilson Ramos.
This one doesn't look good so far down by a boatload as we entered the middle innings.
It's about time they get something going on.
The last thing you want to do is fall behind where you have to score a bunch in the eighth and ninth inning.
Hurst John, now on one and one.
They couldn't pull that one back as he clearly broke the plane to the plate, and that will be ruled a strike and it will take Strike three Call.
He's got another 15 straight strikeouts, and that's the first out of the inning.
So another exceptional effort for him on the mound.
He's got shut out working here as we'll show you the league e r. A leaders.
And as you see there, he's sitting in second place in the National League in that department.
So the bases empty here with one away and up.
Next, the big R B I minded Bad of you in a cesspit is 12 pitch from Kershaw bases your empty one man high in the air down the right field line.
But this is just gonna wind up being a foul ball.
12 Pay three foul balls in a row right here, searching for that.
Put away stuff close there, but he doesn't get the call with the breaking ball.
Tried to work in the backdoor breaking ball there for a strike out, but he just couldn't quite get it to come back to the corner.
That's a really tough pitch to hit.
If you can spot it.
Neither guy given in.
Here's the next one on founds this one off.
Four foul balls in this.
A B picture cannot find anywhere to go to put this guy away Kershaw can't find the target there is.
He's running as far as it can go.
Now it's three and two.
He's definitely gonna want to get greedy in his own, and he's obviously seeing the ball well, or he would have swung at that pitch.
Sometimes in these long epic at bats, you start to get into swing mode and you'll continue this role he's on.
Make it six strikeouts in a row.
Races to away Kyle was like watching pictures that attack with fastballs until there's a reason.
Start mixing it up.
He hasn't needed many of the secondary pitches so far in this one, and there was another good fastball for a strike over there.
We'll grab a bat hit for the pitcher here.
Number on that fastball is too much for in their one and two man.
He's in control of all his weapons right here.
One strike away from five shutout innings.
Hit back up the middle, reined in.
Muncie gets him in with that.
They'll in the inning down in order.
Go the Mets there on the short end of a four.
Familia takes over to start the sixth inning on the mound.
Number 27 Coming with Blake.
Now Gavin Lux will start things out for the Dodgers in their half of any number six, even a two balls and two strikes.
Here's the pitch, and he wasn't going to hit that one within or strike out.
And there's one gone.
You know, it was really impressive to me how that strike out, that he fell behind, you know, to start the at bat.
That's a pretty bad place to be.
But then he kind of refocused himself.
Came right back with three quality pitches in a row to sit him down.
That's not easy to do, but now his focus has to hone in on getting ahead on the next guy at the plate.
Will Smith, three and one to him, now hit the other way out toward right field, waiting on it.
His Nemo two down, ready for another shot.
Now Clayton Kershaw getting hit for himself here, largely due to the big cushion he's got to work with.
Here comes the 11 swing in a line drive right at the third baseman, and that will end the inning 123 go to Dodgers, but they hold a four to nothing.
Leave bottom of the sixth inning now and up next to be the shortstop Amid Rosario 21 it's taken several inches below the zone.
In fact, great a B up into this point, a walk right here could really just infuse some confidence into this lineup.
Now the three and two picks high in the air in the shallow left center Bets has a read on it, and he holds it in for the first out of the inning.
No into the box Now.
Brandon Nimmo hidden two at bats for him at this point in the ballgame, one app.
Nobody on and able to lay off the fastball the way here to in one.
Now, man, this guy has retired a whole slew right now.
I think what he needs to do is just stay focused and keep attacking a game plan like he has up to this point.
Because everything he's done has worked too high that time, and it's three and one.
What? Check his swing there? And did he go? No, he did not, says the third base umpire.
Four almost got him to commit.
There's we take another look at it.
So emotion comes awfully close to breaking that plane.
But he was able to hold back strong risk, and he gets a trip the first because of it.
Up next, the power bat of Pete Alonzo.
He's over to with the strike out in this one runner at first year, one man and this one's in the dirt.
But it won't skip away far enough for the runner to advance, and he struck him out.
So double digits now 10 strikeouts for him thus far.
That's 10 strikeouts for him now.
And I'll tell you, he racked up quite a few more before he's done still alive.
Game left in this one into the box.
That's a foul ball off to the left, and it moves to one and two.
I set by Kershaw.
Now the pit hit out toward second.
Bellenger fields cleanly, and that runner will go no further than second is there are two aboard Now way.
Take a look at his numbers.
A couple of things jump out at you.
Definitely, man, he's been thrown by guys the entire game, but that needs to some high pitch counts, and that's the case here.
After that hit, you have to wonder if he's starting to get a little bit.
Yeah, in today's game, everyone seems to want air on the side of caution in terms of pitch counts at the plate.
Now JD Davis fastball in there, three to payoff pitch home grounder down the line of third, loved by Turner on the first, and the Mets are going to come up empty here.
Is that beginning two left for the Mets? They trail here forward.
Enough new ending set to get underway, and that will bring up ****** bets, even in a ball and a strike.
Here's the pitch, and not a real good cut that slider, and he's behind one and two, John the way and a good bike that slider is.
He swings through it for the first out of the inning.
Really good late.
Bite on that slider right there with best ones have that late action that just starts at the last minute there.
So tough to get the bad on.
And when you've got that good slider going, it's a great strikeout pitch into the box Now.
Justin Turner, swinging a soft liner on the balance.
Throw gets him nice.
Play for the out, all right, so let's turn to show track for a more in depth look at that one.
Great range and a nice backhanded stop and the jump throw with a lot behind it all the way across the infield for the out.
Numbers don't lie, and that was pretty spectacular.
So coming to the plate, Max Muncy, now the 21 waves and misses for strike number two, faces your empty here with two men out.
Did a good job to shorten up and protect the plate, and he'll have another shot at it here, 2 to 1 more time.
Cody Ballenger would be next if they keep this ending alive.
Full count Here, here comes the pitch.
Little chopper back to the mound.
Rwanda first gets him in. The side is retired.
Dodgers down in order there in front 42 Nothing ready to go for the last half of the inning, and that'll give way to the veteran second baseman Robinson Cano.
It doesn't look very promising so far in this one.
As we move in the later innings down by a Bogo it's time to get some base runners and hopefully a long ball to get them back into this one.
There's a Shin Hae slider laid off for a ball 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 and that Mrs Ball four.
It's a leadoff walk to start the home seventh.
When your pitch count gets over 100 you've got.
Expect them to lose a little bit of accuracy out there.
I think if he gets into any more trouble, they might come get him.
We'll see if he can finish strong coming to the plate now.
Wilson Ramos over to thus far in this one That way.
11 Strike two on a well placed change up around the knees.
Gotta believe the picture's gonna trust his defense right here.
Look for something down in his own to induce a ground ball double play into the corner and slicing foul looking to punch him out again.
This guy's a grinder, falls off good pitches and doesn't seem to swing at the ones just off the corner.
This guy's of pictures nightmare and Kershaw can't find the target.
There is. He's running as far as it could go.
Now it's three to waiting.
His turn on deck.
Johannes Cess pit.
It's now the pay off pitch home count.
Still full. Three and two.
He's late on a heater right there.
Just saw an off speed pitch, one to stay back a little bit too long and another foul ball.
Hey, this is a heck of a battle right here. Long.
You know what? They find them still still facing the starter.
They would have had to maybes like this earlier in the game.
I think they get into the booth 321 more time and he lays on their ball.
So back to back walks have him in business here with nobody out.
Well, they've started offensively and us one so far after that walk.
They've got runners at first and second and ready to make a little noise.
Just need a big hit.
Now here's the left fielder.
You'll in a cess pit.
It's and his guys were looking to race that doughnut on the scoreboard with a runner in scoring position.
Yeah, they've been really shut down so far in this one.
They had runners on base but haven't been able to string anything together first and second here with nobody out Mrs again.
Ball four and his control is really let him down.
Now that's a big no no.
He obviously had to work carefully with two men on, but he did not want to walk up to load the bases.
Now he's really got his work cut out for him.
We'll see how he fares here.
No, Nunes will get a chance to really deliver off the bench.
Pinch hit with the bases loaded and nobody out just off the outside that time laid off for a ball and often becomes harder to hit the zone with.
The pressure starts to heat up tight spot, bases loaded.
Tried to crush that ball.
Now perhaps needs to shorten up with two stripes ready with two and two.
Here's a little chopper up the middle, scooped up a tag for one, and that didn't work out too well as the pinch hitter comes on the bounce into a double play.
Yeah, you know, that's a wasted opportunity, even though run does scorned like they're still down.
And trading two outs at this point in the game is really costly.
Not a good turn of events for them.
Now here's the Dodgers skipper out of the dugout on his way to the mound, and it looks as though that's going to be off for a starter here tonight.
So he'll head for the Showers as he stands to win this one if the bullpen confined away to protect it.
Three run lead villain Floral takes over pitching duties, looking to get that final out.
Now here in this seventh inning, more Rosario will be his first assignment upon Entering is a bat with a runner in scoring position here and two away now, the one in one looked at for ball number two.
Two outs here with a runner at 30 and its two balls and two strikes.
Now a couple of writing starting pollution now in the bullpen.
Here's to two on strike three Caldas, he says.
You got to be kidding me.
With the side retired Mets forced to settle for one here in the inning way.
Look ahead to ending number eight now is the Dodgers four and the Mets won.
Justin Wilson been summoned from the bullpen.
Is he'll do so to start the eighth.
So here's Cody Bellenger lifetime numbers against Justin Wilson.
He's hitless in free ad vats one and one.
Here it is, right side and right into the ship to know, has it throw on to first in time? So the leadoff man is set down to open up any number eight John Peterson hidden two tries for him so far.
Eighth inning Fourtou.
One is our score, and this is swung on and missed.
Two are quickly retired to start any number eight.
Hey, I'm not sure what he was sitting on right there.
Might have been sitting on all speed picks, but instead he gets the fastball way late.
Had no chance to put that now Cory Seager fastball runs in tight here, and it's 21 two out.
Nobody on 31 is the count of the Dodgers shortstop.
He loses him on ball four.
Wow, you know he's not happy with that call.
When it crossed the plate, it sure looked like it strike to me seem to catch a ton of the plate.
That's a tough way to give up a walk, but he's got to put it behind him. Now.
Digging in now, Gavin Lux is working on a one for three thus far.
Runner on first with two away, and he misses again.
That's back to back guys now that have reached base via the base on balls.
Man pictures warning how he'd get that called, busted him inside or 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 now to the plate, Will Smith.
He's got a hit in three at bats to this point 11 home.
Hey, this is a big pitch right here.
Can allow them attack on any more runs.
Let's see if he attacks his own or bury something in it.
Two and two to the Dodgers catcher.
I'll tell you, it's a helpless feeling for a manager or a pitching coach.
When your pictures are having a really hard time throwing strikes, what he is supposed to do other than keep trying new guys until someone starts attacking the zone.
Fastball didn't miss by much, and it's a full count now.
Well, all of the empires in the seats thought that would strike three and they weren't far off.
But I think that was a good call.
Look, to be just a bit outside, there's a ball into right center field that's gonna be a base hit.
A run will score from second and make this a 51 game.
Hey, that's what you try and do is an offense.
You get a four run lead grand slam my head down, but your former closer warming up when you see a three run lead on your same situations got out the window.
Don't tell me that.
Oh, it does, because zero the only way you're gonna get into this game is it has to be a save situation.
You sit watch eight innings of baseball, you get up to warm up in the night.
You're already go thinking, Hey, I'm gonna come in and get me a three out saving all the sudden you're out of the game because it's a 41 lead of course, you think about it as a reliever looking forward. The strikeout.
Here's the 12 lying towards center field and a base hit and that will get the running from third.
Definitely tried to elevate the heater right there with two strikes because that way too much of the plate.
Nice execution by tenses trots impound the bullpen.
Here is he inherits a tough spot with two on and two away.
His first assignment here is facing with runners at first and second and two away.
Two men are on with two men out, and here's a fastball not close as he runs it to one.
Now three and one to the Dodgers left Fielder three and one.
Here, you have to make a good pitch on the mound grooving.
One here rarely works in your favor unless the hitter tries to do too much with it and it's up to a 32 full count.
Now he was able to sneak that fastball by him on three and one.
So So now we've got a battle on her hands, two down runners at first and second too close for comfort, and he did a good job just to make contact.
Three to yanked on the ground down the line, and he tries for the backhand, reaching third.
But it gets by the gloves down the line throw, and he's tagged out at second.
But one run does come in to score on the play before the inning comes to an end.
So three runs on three hits.
No errors in a man left.
Not too many more shocks left home half of the eighth coming up L.
A's on top 7 to 1.
Scott Alexander is on to pitch out of the bullpen in the bottom half of the aid.
So now to the plate.
Brandon Nimmo sinker misses that time, and it's two on one.
Alexander is among a dying breed.
Those lefty specialists whose roles are changing with the new rules around reliever usage.
Nemo, with an even count of two and two now swung on and missed, really fooled in that time for the first out? Well, we've seen some really good pitching from these guys on this one.
Bullpen is looked sharp, in effect, a nice effort turned in by the starter These days, pitching has become a full staff effort, and I have been impressed with the job these guys have done so far.
Standing in now He'd Alonso one and two is the change of had him out in front there.
Now the Dodgers get a right hander up and throwing in their bullpen.
Look out that one almost got away from him to and to.
Now, here's the pitch.
Here's to to seventh pitch of the at bat. Coming up.
Got him, and he goes down on strikes for the third time.
It's been a rough night of the yard for him.
That's three times he's gone down on strikes now in this one.
So they really figured out how to attack this guy into the box.
Michael Conforto on the screws to shortstop but caught to retire the side.
Mets go down 123 They're down 7 to 1, all set for the start of the inning, and that will bring up the third baseman, Justin Turner, now the one in one pic.
And that's gonna be high two and two now.
Action in the bullpen now, as a right hander begins to throw out there.
The 22 pitch and this is pop foul, but perhaps playable behind first, and no one can get there.
We'll try it again.
And that Mrs Show.
It's a full count. Three and two.
Now the pay off pitch on and this pitch misses Here.
It's ball four, and they've got a leadoff base runner aboard to start the ninth battle, coupled now with plate Max Muncy, he was retired via the ground ball last time up.
Yeah, Matty, expect this picture to try and get the same result.
That's his last at bat right here.
The double play is in order, anything on the ground the way this defense is.
They could certainly role to on pitches off the catcher's glove as it rolls away.
And it's not in thymus.
He's in well ahead of the throw to one strike to swinging.
They'd like to see a little bit more discipline in that you get a count, your favorite swinging a pitch that bad.
Even a two balls and two strikes.
Here's the pitch, still hanging with him.
Another good swing to keep it going.
Another two to offering again.
He sends it out of play, ready with another two to fouled off 2 to 1 more time doesn't get the zone count full now.
One thing to take note of this.
How these last two batters have really driven up his pitch count.
He's had to use 14 pitches already on them, and he's not even through this guy yet.
14 is near the top end of what you want to throw in.
A pleat inning finally wears him down.
Here is he strikes him out after a nine pitch at bat.
Ballenger in the plate.
Now it was a ground out victim last time up, runner at second here with one man out, and we've really given some leeway on the outside edge here, too, and too now, tough curveball that time.
But he's able to make a little contact to keep his at bat going, he said, and the 22 pitch pop him up.
Romo's is under it, and he brings it in for the second out of the inning.
Now that now with plate Jaak Peterson on runner in scoring position with 21 is a curveball that gets him out in front for a strike.
Shin high fastball That time.
Bull three, now on three and two is a picture.
You've got to go with the pitch that you feel most comfortable throwing with, and it's fouled away.
Another full count pitch home right side, and that's through into right field for a base.
It and they're gonna hold that runner at third base is even with two away.
They didn't like their chances there.
He looked a little bit out in front right there, but he's able to pull that ground ball through the whole first single.
Now Cory Seager.
This one's outside quite a bit off the plate that time, and he found this one off, 22 Here it is, and there strike three.
Now they can manage to hold on to this huge lead.
In the side is retired.
Dodgers strand a couple there on top 7 to 1.
Next up from New York.
He was retired via the ground ball last time up.
Bounce into the left side.
He's got it, and that's the first Robinson Cano.
The next diggin enters this advance, one for two with a walk.
Bases are empty, one man swing and a chopper down the first base line, but this will get foul.
It's evolved into strikes, and that is swung on and missed.
And things were starting to look bleak here for the home. Nine.
There are two away now classic slider down and away from the strike out there.
Not a whole lot to say about that pitch that hasn't been said a 1,000,000 times already.
That's just a really tough pitch for a hitter to pick up out of a pitcher's hand so they end up chasing when they're in protective mode at the plate.
Now it's swinging a ground ball.
This should do it on the first, and that is gonna conclude the festivities here tonight.
Well, this game had its moments, but it got him and pretty quick.
When you can post a six run win, save your closer for another day and let everyone in on the action, 71 The final score in tonight's Los Angeles took the lead in the second inning and road that until the very end.
Clayton Kershaw earns win number seven on the season as he racked up 10 strikeouts in the effort, so that will put a wrap on things here this evening for my partners.
