Kershaw Day Spoiled in Los Angeles By…. Walker Buehler?

[Box Score]

Alright, so it was really spoiled by Dave Roberts. Walker Buehler returned from his DL stint – and Roberts opted to let him relieve an effective Kershaw after five innings and in-effect let him rehab against the Chicago Cubs.

Just about the time I was saying to myself that the Dodgers were really about to accomplish something and take three of four against the Cubs, things went bad in a hurry.

In the end it was an 11-5 loss. Max Muncy homered again, his 17th to lead the team. And this is officially just like when Charlie Blackmon broke out about five years ago. Feels the exact same, is the same. He’s not going away folks. He will hit all year long.

The Dodgers are 43-36, which is disappointing because they really could have swept the Cubs with a few different bounces. And after last night’s huge win – I was barely able to savor it with a matinee defeat.
