Colorado Rockies: 2017 postseason outlook with 20 games remaining

11 Setiembre 2017, 06:04 | Gerardo Tarin

The Dodgers have fallen off their record-setting pace, and their stranglehold on the division is being threatened by a surprise contender

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw throws to the plate against the Colorado Rockies in the first inning of a Major League baseball game at Dodger Stadium on Thursday Sept. 07 2017 in Los Angeles

Arenado played in his 700th career game, 11th most in Rockies history.

Kershaw opened by giving up four consecutive hits, including Arenado's homer that quickly put the Dodgers in a hole.

The Yankees currently hold a narrow lead for the top Wild Card spot in the American League and will look to hold on to this position.

Buehler started the season in Class-A Rancho Cucamonga.

The Dodgers now have three double-digit streaks this season. Cody Bellinger follow with an odd chopper double off Reynolds glove and Yasiel Puig got an even stranger double on a sinking line drive off the glove of Arenado at third. "At the same time, whenever we have good pitching, just the way we did (Thursday), and today after that ugly (inning) when they scored four runs, we shut them down".

Roberts was asked if he'd considered pumping some sunshine into the room by telling the club that, back in March, it would be delighted to have a nine-game lead on the 11th of September. "They play hard and they'll get their consistency back". Gonzalez isn't only just batting better than he was before but has been the best hitter on the team over the past seven days with a.533/.632/1.133 and two home runs.

The Rockies won their sixth straight on the road for the first time since April 2015.

Colorado Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood (32) throws to the plate during the first inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, in Los Angeles. I got to hopefully lock the command back in. A loss to the Rockies would mean the Dodgers have been swept in three of their past four series.

Rick Honeycutt has been working with Darvish on correcting his mechanics, so hopefully, they can work out the kinks and return Darvish to the upper echelon of pitchers. Right now they're upset.

The NL West leaders haven't lost that many since May 2013, when they dropped eight in a row. But after throwing 60 pitches over three innings in an intentionally abbreviated start last week against the Giants, Chatwood returned for the fourth.

After their team compiled 91 wins through August 25 - 13 more than the second-best team in MLB - Dodgers fans were understandably excited about the prospect of breaking the National League record of 108 victories in the modern era, set by the Cincinnati Reds in 1975 and matched by the New York Mets in 1986. Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado each had RBI singles in the fourth, as well. He forced Curtis Granderson to fly out to end the third. He has issued a combined nine hits and a whopping 12 walks in those two outings. Despite having his 12-game winning streak snapped, Kershaw has gone 12-1 in his last 17 games, posting a 1.91 ERA (24 ER/109.2 IP), holding hitters to a.192 average and striking out 138 batters against just 24 walks. While Roberts continues to praise his hitters' preparation, he's tired of acknowledging the disparity between the effort and the results.

"I want to pitch seven, eight innings - and win", Darvish said. "We're getting to some uncharted territory".

Much like Nadal's 6-2, 6-3, 6-1 win against Wawrinka at Roland Garros, the only beauty of this match was not in its competitiveness - not by a long shot - but in an appreciation for one participant's absolute superiority. Holland earned his NL-leading 38th save of the season. Recalled RHP Jairo Díaz from Triple-A Albuquerque and placed him on 60-day DL with right elbow inflammation. The Padres historically give the Rockies trouble, especially in recent years at Petco Park.
