Well, not much to say about this one. Clayton Kershaw, while he wasn’t 1963 Sandy Koufax, got about the same result – a BUNCH of 0s, and the Braves were shut out for the second straight night.

Anibal Sanchez struggled through 4 2/3 innings, giving up all three runs, including a two run first inning shot to Manny Machado, and a Yasmani Grandal dinger to open the 5th. After a two out hit by Justin Turner Sanchez gave way to Max Fried, who retired Max Muncy to end the inning. Touki Toussaint pitched the 6th and 7th, walked two and striking out two but giving up no hits, and Arodys Vizcaino tossed a seven pitch 8th to complete the pen’s evening.

So, after two games, we’re in an 18 inning scoreless streak, the Dodgers are using our starters as Extended BP, and we’re about to face their hottest pitcher since the All-Star Break in a win or go home game. Sounds like we’ve got ’em just where we want ’em.

It doesn’t feel like a Collins moment. How about something light and fun and positive.
