Yesterday’s game was during a beautiful Los Angeles afternoon, there wasn’t a cloud in the sky at Dodger Stadium. I figured the Jon Lester/Clayton Kershaw tilt would be a 2-1 classic. I missed badly as there was 10 runs on the board by the fourth inning (I lost my over bet early, painless and quick like a broken neck).
But the Dodgers hung on. They swept the world champions in Los Angeles – a place that they’re tough to contend with. It may not be so much a case of how good the Dodgers are (I think they are a really good team at home, and yesterday they solved issues they’ve had against LHP), but the Cubs just have some serious Championship hangover right now.
Cody Bellinger hit a monstrous three run home run, and Corey Seager had a couple of knocks. More than anything it was a glimpse of the picture perfect day in LA that I’ll be enjoying in about a week. I cannot wait.
