Blog Kiosk: 9/8/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

I think it's always best to accentuate the positive. Per Joshua Thornton at
"The back end of the game, one real highlight was obviously Walker Buehler," Roberts said. "And to see him break in like that, just the presence, the command of all his pitches. It just looked right. It was exciting for us."
Walker pitched two scoreless innings; striking out two and allowing one hit on 26 pitches.

  • This Day in Dodger HistoryIn 1955 the Brooklyn Dodgers clinched the pennant when they defeated the Milwaukee Braves, 10-2. As you know, they would go on to win the World Series later that season. In 1957 the Dodgers and Giants would play for the last time against one another while still New York based clubs. Unfortunately, the Jints beat the Bums, 3-2.

  • Per Eric Stephen at True Blue LA : "Adrian Gonzalez receives epidural shot in his back."
“He’ll be down for a couple days, and hope that that dissapates. Then he’ll be back in there,” manager Dave Roberts said. “He’s done it a couple times this year and it’s helped get him over the hump. Hopefully this formula of treatment, rest, and all that will help him get back on the field.”
Jackson’s grand slam in the seventh inning broke a 7-7 tie as Double-A Tulsa beat Northwest Arkansas (Royals) 11-7 to tie their Texas League semifinal series at 1-1. Acquired from the Mariners in March for righthander Chase De Jong, Jackson hit .247/.358/.402 at two levels this season.
  • Per Gerard Gilberto at; "Drillers even series behind Jackson's slam: Dodgers No. 18 prospect slugs tiebreaker in Texas League semis."
"It was nice to get that hit and put us up. Getting back in the dugout, the energy was back, so it felt really good," said the 24-year-old infielder, who also walked twice and scored two runs.
