Five minutes before the Dodgers get their first pitch from the Rockies today, the Giants will get theirs from the A’s in Oakland. It’s a scoreboard-watching fiesta. One good outcome for Los Angeles clinches a tie for the National League West title. Two good outcomes lock it up outright.

Regardless of what happens today, the Dodgers are scheduled to begin their next series in San Francisco on Monday with Zack Greinke facing Jake Peavy, followed by Clayton Kershaw against Madison Bumgarner on Tuesday.

Kiké Hernandez could be activated from the disabled list before Monday’s game, and the Dodgers are also hopeful that Adrian Gonzalez will be back in the lineup after resting a pinched nerve in his back. Don Mattingly also told reporters today that the team is being cautious with Corey Seager, who tripled in Saturday’s 8-6 defeat but whose legs seem to be an issue.


Tonight, Sunday or San Francisco?


Keep your hat on


  1. I know you will probably make up an excuse as usual. But this is a totally embarrassing team effort. Do they even care? Highest paid team is baseball should be able to beat the last place team in their own Division. Mattingly needs to wake up. There are other ways to score runs besides swinging for the fence!!!

  2. The Dodgers might want to look into Brain State Technologies but are too stubborn to do it.
