Dodgers at Houston Astros Game Thread, Wednesday at 4:10 p.m. PT

Howard Cole

[Updated: Dodgers 4, Astros 2 in 13 innings. Dennis Santana the winner (1-0), Cy Sneed the loser (0-1). Homers by Corey Seager (1) and Edwin Rios (1).]

Welcome to another of our daily game threads. Wednesday marks the second of two versus the Astros at Houston. First pitch is at 4:10 p.m. PT on SportsNet LA.

Highlights from Tuesday night's game include 5 1/3 scoreless innings from the Dodgers' bullpen, a five-run, single-and-walk-em-to-death L.A. fifth and a Joe Kelly-inspired brouhaha. And inspiration for the visitors and their fans all the way around. We'll see what, if anything, comes of it tonight.

Reader-participation game threads are posted in this space daily for every Dodgers contest that is telecast locally or nationally, including the postseason as long as the locals are in there. All of them. With yours truly as the discussion host.

Very disappointing W. An Asterisk defeat is not complete without an HBP.

The Kelly suspension still sucks, but nice to get the victory. Great pitching job by Santana and hope Rios gets more playing time.

Santana goes 2 2/3 scoreless for the win and what a job he did. It's in the books, a 4-2 win in 13. And 9 2/3 scoreless for the bullpen. Rios with the game winner, a two-run homer in the top of the frame. Dodgers went 2-15 with RISP, but a win is a win, and a sleep of the little two-game series. Onto Arizon tomorrow, with a 4-2 mark.

Thanks to all who participated. Truly appreciate you guys and girls.

Dodgers don’t benefit much from a man at second to lead off an inning.
