A few more runs would be nice. Let’s give Jensen a few more runs to work with.

No reason for Turner to throw that ball.

This seems like a sane place to spend the game, compared to Twitter. Good call on AJ 30 minutes ago. Any other observations?

Pollock changes this game. HR- nice

Taylor will go in to play second base and Muncy will slide over to first.

Doc wants Taylor in for defense anyway.

AJ’s called strike 2 might just win the game. Glad he didn’t get popped for arguing.

The Dodgers best hitter at the moment is AJ Pollock. Think about that. Quick outs, pop flies and sleepwalking through two series vs Frisco.

There hoping to get him through this last inning. But they’ll come get him if they have to.

Another leadoff walk.

If Buehler somehow manages to get through the sixth without allowing another run, it’s a significant improvement. But he’s still clearly off. Why? Because he didn’t throw during the shutdown.

Gausman’s ERA coming in was 5.27 or thereabouts.

WB looks good except for the 2 walks. Now we just need the Dodgers bats to get in the game

Much much better for Buehler. He should go seven and be back to his normal self.

Ok, that was much better. Well, not the almost two run homer, or the two neatly dropped fly balls, but better.
