Blog Kiosk: 9/20/2018 - Dodgers Links - Sweep!

The dazzling duo of Buehler and Puig handcuffed the Rockies last night, 5-2, as they completed a series sweep to give the club a 2.5 game lead in the NL West -- their largest lead of the season.  Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“This game, this series was emblematic of our ballclub — how many people had their hands in this series to help win three games,” said manager Dave Roberts. “Yasiel, to be able to put him in a leverage spot and to be prepared for that moment and to come through was huge, obviously.”
Yasiel hit a deciding three-run homer in the seventh inning to knock any air that remained against the sails of the quickly sinking Rockies vessel. Buehler put in six innings of work and struck out a career high 12 batters in the no-decision.

  • This Day in Dodgers HistoryIn 1907 the Dodgers are no-hit by Pirates rookie Nick Maddox, 2-1. In 1959 the Dodgers and Giants play the last ballgame ever at San Francisco's Seals Stadium. The Dodgers defeated the Giants 8-2. The Giants would play at Candlestick Park the next season. In 1993 pinch-hitting machine Dave Hansen collected his 18th pinch-hit of the season to set a new franchise record. In 2011 Clayton Kershaw becomes the first Dodger twenty game winner since Ramon Martinez in 1990. He defeats the Giants 2-1. BTW, DodgerFilms was there and shared a video that you can watch here.
