He Said, She Said – NLCS Game 3 for 10/15/2018

Scouts: Howdy folks, I am back for another round of who wants to go to the World Series?  We are down to our final two contenders, the scrappy Milwaukee Brewers and the mega rich Los Angeles Dodgers.  You know, I really want to root for the Brewers here, but damn if everyone wasn’t watching the stupid Packers last night.  Hey guys!  Over here!  We have playoff baseball!


Brewers 4, Dodgers 0 

Jhoulys Chacin shut down the Dodgers with 6 strikeouts over 5.1 innings, while the bullpen came in and finished what he started.  All the riches in the land couldn’t buy the Dodgers any runs, although they did get pretty close in the 9th, with Jeremy Jeffress striking out Yasmani Grandal and Brian Dozier with the sacks full in the 9th.  As for the Brew Crew, Ryan Braun doubled in a run in the first, a wild pitch scored Travis Shaw in the 6th, and Orlando Arcia homered in two in the 7th.


Milwaukee now leads the series 2-1.  The two teams will play once more tonight at 9:09 EST, which certainly means a good portion of the country will be asleep by the third inning.  Good plan there MLB!  Gio Gonzalez is slated to match-up against Rich Hill.  Also playing tonight, is the Red Sox in Houston, starting at 5:09 EST.  That series is tied at 1.  Nathan Eovaldi will face off against Dallas Keuchel.

  1. I watched the Brooze sink Dem Bums on the big screen in the restaurant at the wonderful Fiesta Inn Monterrey Tecnologico last night on Fox Deportes Mexico. It sure looked like Jeffress was going to foul the sheets again, but somehow he wriggled out of his one out, bases loaded mess. That’s got to do wonders for his confidence.

    Beisbol, of course, is big down here, but apparently American football also has a huge following. Fox Deportes was advertising NFL matchups, including the London game, this morning – lots of them – and hawking its NFL subscription package. Otherwise it was all backandforthandbackandforthandbackandforthball. You know, Latin America. And the cabezas hablando can waste just as much time gibbering about soccer as the Fox and ESPN geeks can on football, basketball and curling.

    Incidentally, Fox showed a couple of screens of various national backandforthandbackandforthandbackandforthball teams with the names of their “position players” stationed at various points on the field. It occurred to me that of all the major sports, as well as of backandforthandbackandforthandbackandforthball, baseball is the only one whose defensive players more or less hold their positions on the field. All the others rapidly degenerate into a percolating stew the moment play begins. Hmmmm.
