It is rare that on a Saturday in the summer, the Los Angeles Dodgers play a 4:00 Eastern time zone start (making it a 1:00 start in Los Angeles). There’s something beautiful about it. The way the sun hit the stadium today, you just knew it was a perfect day there.
Other than the aesthetics of the atmosphere, there was nothing particularly special about this one. The Dodgers were business-like in taking care of the Giants 2-1 today. Corey Seager had three hits; two of which were doubles and scored both runs on Cody Bellinger knocks.
Rich Hill went 5 and 2/3 innings and Kenley Jansen worked an inning striking out the final hitter of the game for the save. Everyone goes back to their Los Angeles, California homes happy. What a life they must be living out there tonight.
The Dodgers have now won seven in a row and are in the midst of an insane streak that dates back to the day we were there. This is an all-time type team we are watching; in terms of the history of this blog and possibly in the history of the game. A generational type team. The 2017 Dodgers.
Soak them in.
