In the Manny Machado Era, the Dodgers are 1-0! Anyway, the 1st game of this tough stretch was a success for the Boys in Blue! Rich Hill was good today as he pitched 6 innings of 1 run ball! He walked 4 batters, but made it up by punching out 9! His final line: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 9 SO. The Dodgers got on the board with the help of a passed ball in the 3rd to make it 1-0 Dodgers! After a 1-1 tie going into the 7th, Chris Taylor hit an RBI (42) single to put the Dodgers on top 2-1! Later in the inning, Max Muncy continues where he left off in the 1st half with an RBI (42) double to make it 3-1 Dodgers! The Dodgers got some much needed insurance after Kiké hit a 3-Run HR (17) to put the Dodgers up 6-2 which would be crucial going into the bottom of the 9th! So how did Machado do in his debut? Pretty good! He went 2-3 with 2 walks to reach base 4 times tonight! You could tell the Brewers were pitching him very carefully all throughout the game. That’s pretty much what you expect to see going forward from opposing pitchers. Great way to start the 2nd half! Kershaw gets the ball tomorrow!
