After a playoff-like game last night, the Dodgers will look to take 3-of-4 from the Brewers in the matinee matchup. But, it’s going to be tough.
When Heaney has been healthy, he’s been dominant: 1.16 ERA, 2.18 FIP, 24.6 K-BB%. However, that dominance has come in just 31 innings of work. With Walker Buehler out for the season, a healthy Heaney for October is essential.
Mookie Betts gets the day off with Burnes on the mound. Joey Gallo starts in right field in his stead. And after a couple days off, Cody Bellinger is back patrolling center field. Thankfully, the Dodgers have Max Muncy, who appears to be back.
Lastly, I’m sure you’ve seen the video of Dodgers’ radio reporter David Vassegh, who fractured his wrist and ribs going down the slide in Milwaukee. Well, whoever in the PR department wrote the game notes is a savage.
And this is the hottest meme going around the last couple of days, and props to the Orange County Register’s Bill Plunkett for coming up with this one.
First pitch is at 11:10 a.m. Pacific time.
