And That Happened: Monday's scores and recaps

Leave a comment

Only two games? Hardly worth the effort.

Brewers 14, Indians 12:
I started to watch this one, but eventually realized that life is too
short to watch ugly baseball. I do wonder, however, how Ben Francisco,
Jhonny Peralta and Mike Cameron feel about going a collective 0-13 on a
night when the pitchers couldn’t get anyone else out.

Angles 9, Giants 7:
Another pitching-free game. I wonder if the four teams playing last
night decided that they needed to score enough for all 30. Oh, and
remember those 11 minutes at the beginning of the season when we
thought that Barry Zito had finally figured it out? Yeah, guess not:
3.2 IP, 10 H, 7 ER.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
