The Dodgers shut the Cubs out in back to back games! Rich Hill pitched a superb game, going through six innings not allowing a run, and only 2 hits during that time. In the third inning, my father jinxed Corey Seager by saying that he wasn't doing anything. Seager then hit an RBI single to which he made it to second because of the throw home to try to get Toles out (which is very unlikely). We already had a 1-0 lead going into the 4th, and I had a gut feeling Grandal was going to do something great. And he did. Grandal hit a 2 run, 404 foot homerun off of Jake Arrieta, over the heads of Jorge Soler and Dexter Fowler. Shortly after that, 2 innings to be exact, Justin Turner crushed a solo home run over the head of Dexter Fowler. We were slowly taking total dominance over the Cubs in this game. We weren't done yet, as usual. The Dodgers always fight their way back into the game. Granted we were winning, we wanted more assurance. We wanted there to be no doubt that we'd win the game.
Leave it to Joc Pederson to give us that assurance.
Pederson doubled to left, and Puig scored easily. The Cubs weren't going to throw home and let a runner advance like they did with Seager. Pederson quickly stole third, and Grandal grounded out to short stop, and Pederson scored. We brought in Kenley Jansen, and he played like Rich Hill. Quick and good, allowing no runs and only a single hit from Rizzo, when Rizzo's bat shattered and flew into the infield. Nobody was injured, but it took Gonzalez and Utley a longer time to get there, which allowed Rizzo to reach 1st base without getting tagged. The Dodgers now have a 2-1 lead over the Cubs, just when we thought it was getting bad! Lets go Dodgers! #dodgers#letsgododgers#gododgers#webleedblue#itfdb#boysinblue#chicagocubs#cubs#chicago#cubbies#weloveLA#LAlovesOctober#justinturner#yasmanigrandal#homer#homered#homerun#seagersmooth#jocpederson#richhill#jakearrieta#backtoback#shutouts#backtobackshutouts
