The team with the best record in baseball doesn't like being reminded about losing 16 of 17 games during a stretch in September, nor do the Dodgers buy in to the observation that they've suddenly flipped the Franklin Gutierrez Authentic Jersey switch to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best-of-five National League Division Series presented by T-Mobile.
There's a temptation in baseball, and especially in playoff baseball, to believe that games are won and lost dramatically, with singular blows and heroic achievements. Think Kirk Gibson homering and pumping Grant Dayton Authentic Jersey his fist around the bases, Reggie Jackson crushing three homers in a game, Jack Morris throwing a 10-inning shutout, Sandy Koufax or Madison Bumgarner coming back on two days' rest.
Many circled this National League Division Series between the Dodgers and D-backs as one that could surprise people. But to this point, Los Angeles' offense has shaken off the rust and displayed the relentlessness that spurred the club to the Majors' best regular-season record.
The Dodgers' 8-5 win on Saturday night gave them a commanding 2-0 lead over their NL West rivals heading to Arizona, and Los Angeles has never blown a 2-0 lead in a five-game postseason series. The Hyun-Jin Ryu Authentic Jersey D-backs will have a lot of work to do, but the task is not impossible. Remember, Arizona won the final six regular-season meetings between these two clubs; the winning formula is out there. The Dodgers are now up 2-0 in the NLDS presented by T-Mobile thanks to an 8-5 win over the D-backs in Game 2. The game had a lot of entertainment value thanks to Yasiel Puig. However, he was not the only one sporting Dodger Blue to give us a show. Despite his brief start, Rich Hill gave the crowd a reason to cheer.
Whether hitting Jackie Robinson Authentic Jersey a home run, running the bases, fielding his position or just hanging out in the clubhouse, the Yasiel Puig Experience is unlike any other in baseball. It's equal parts high drama and high comedy, full of pathos and passion -- and during NLDS Game 2 against the D-backs on Saturday night, he wrapped all of that into a single at-bat.
It was a big spot for the Dodgers: Trailing Arizona, 2-1, in the bottom of the fourth, L.A. had runners on first and second with just one man out. Puig was ready. Puig was excited. So excited, in fact, Jacob Rhame Authentic Jersey that after taking an 0-2 pitch in the dirt from Robbie Ray, he couldn't help but bust out in a jig.
Rich Hill, the Dodgers' starter who worked four innings of two-run ball, was seen in the dugout holding a sign encouraging the Dodger Stadium crowd to "make some noise" during a rally in the seventh. The Dodgers benefited from two singles, a walk and a fielding error to add an insurance run for an 8-5 lead.
I think that for Kenta on this roster, he's a righty killer, and he's really dominated right-handed hitters. So lefties hasn't been as successful, and, again, he's on the roster to do that, and there was a run of righties, and he did what he needed to do. You look down the lineup, and there are three or four left-handed hitters coming up. We've got Tony Watson on this roster to do just the opposite, get lefties out. Got out of it and gave a couple ground balls. But Tony, trust him, like him in that spot against lefties.
