Tuesday 17th Oct 2017

Friday found us at Camelback Ranch where the Dodgers hosted the White Sox, and the two teams pretty much looked season ready. The game was locked at 0-0 until the seventh inning when Joc Pederson (who registered at #12 on the Mastersball Top 250 Prospect List)  hooked a liner just inside the foul pole for a two-run homer. That was all the Dodgers would need.

There's one big problem for Pederson, however. Like Scott Van Slyke and Clint Robinson, who also belted a dinger, he has Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig and Andre Ethier (who did start the game) in front of him.

Pale Hose hurler Chris Sale really set a lot of the tone with a couple of innings allowing a double to Adrian Gonzalez, and nothing more, while striking out four.

Dodgers starter Hyun-jin Ryu matched Sale, as did the following littany of hurlers including Brian Wilson, Kenley Jansen, Donnie Veal and the guy I really wonder how he managed this long in the Majors, Jamie Wright (who wound up the winner of the game).

I did see Jose Abreu hit, but for naught, and Chone Figgins, still trying to recapture his dead skills, managed a walk but nothing else.
