Dodgers for Lunch on Getaway Day at Coors Field. Please do not get swept!
I ‘ve been so busy today that I forgot the game started early on Getaway day. Oh I so hope the Dodgers don’t get swept by the Rockies. You never know what can happen at Coors Field.
The record of the Dodgers sweeping and getting swept stands at:
|Dodgers||Have Swept||Gotten Swept|
|At Dodger Stadium||Pirates, Padres, Rockies, Cardinals, cubs||Brewers, Diamond Backs Giants|
|Away||Phillies, Mets, Giants||Giants, Athletics|
Dodgers lost the first game 10-0 Beckett gave up three runs. Second game Dodgers lost to the Rockes by the score of 8-2.
In this 3rd game, I See You Hanley Ramirez hits a two run blast! Dodgers leading the 3rd game 6-0 !! Dylan Hernandez, LA Times Dodger beat writer, had reported after two innings that Drew Pomeranz had a perfect game thorugh two innings. Thanks Dylan for breaking it! 😉 Blanton is enjoying this bouquet of runs.

Reminder: Tomorrow is Vin Scully bobblehead!
Get to Dodger Stadium early!! is going to be a busy day tomorrow with Vin Scully bobblehead.
It was a beautiful night at Dodger Stadium with an almost full moon also taking in the game on Saturday.
Kershaw pitched seven strong innings giving up one run on three hits. Belisario pitched a perfect eighth and Kenley Jansen did the same in the nine to record his 21st save. Matt Kemp hit his 16th homerun.
Final score Dodgers 3 Cubs 1. Hard luck Volstad, who gave up two runs, took the loss.
Dodgers go for the sweep today when Joe Blanton makes his first start with the Dodgers. Germano will start for the Cubs.
Welcome to the Dodgers Blanton!
With the Dodgers going for the sweep today at Dodger Stadium, I was thinking “how many sweeps have they been involved in?”
Dodgers have swept at Dodger Stadium four times (Pirates, Padres, Rockies & Cardinals).
Dodgers have been swept two times at Dodger Stadium (Brewers & D’Backs).
Dodgers have swept on the road three times (Phillies, Mets & Giants)
Dodgers have been swept on the road times two times (Giants & A’s)
So the totals are: Sweeps = 7 , Swept = 4
Let’s make it five sweeps at Dodger Stadium for a total of eight sweeps overall.
