There is always something positive with everything: the Dodgers finally are hitting. They actually had 7 hits, more than Houston but somehow they still lost. Houston only were able to get 3 hits against Zack Greinke but still won. The key is timely hitting. The final score was 1-3.
In the bottom of the first inning, Houston was able to score on a fielding error by Justin Turner making the score 0-1.
In the bottom of the second inning, Valbuena hit a homerun to center making the score 0-2. It is unusual for anyone to be able to hit a homerun with Zack pitching but Altuve also was able to hit one in the 6th innng as well. The Dodgers actually scored a run in the 6th. Kazmir had a no hitter into the 4th inning when Jimmy Rollins hit a basehit. Rollins also hit the 500th double of his career.
Sunday will be a matchup of Clayton Kershaw and Lance McCullers, a rookie who just came up from triple A Fresno. Hopefully the Dodgers can win, breaking up a 4 game losing streak.
Thanks for stopping by. GO DODGERS!
