Yasmani Grandal, LA Dodgers get to Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark

first_img“We had a hard time squaring him up,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Of course, there was the third time through the order.Adrian Gonzalez, who struck out and grounded out in his first two at-bats, doubled in the seventh inning when he lined a 94 mph fastball down the first-base line. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> It was a breeze the first two times Tanner Roark worked through the Dodgers’ lineup Tuesday.The Washington Nationals right-hander retired 15 of the first 18 batters he faced, commanding a two-seam fastball with a little late movement. Nobody walked. Three got hits, but only Joc Pederson did so by advancing past first base.center_img Then the Dodgers really jumped on Roark.To start the eighth inning, Pederson drew a walk. Yasiel Puig, appearing in his first game since June 2, singled off the glove of leaping shortstop Danny Espinosa. And Yasmani Grandal followed by smoking a 1-and-2 fastball 418 feet to center field, a 109-mph line drive that brought the announced crowd of 42,307 to its feet at Dodger Stadium.“I was literally trying for a way to get the ball in the air, especially to right field in order to get Joc over,” Grandal said. “If it was deep enough, Puig can get into scoring position and just let the next guy do it. I was able to get it up in the air enough and actually hit it to dead center.”Grandal’s three-run home run put the Dodgers ahead for good in a 3-2 victory over the Nationals, their season-high fifth straight victory and seventh in their last eight. They also moved to seven games above .500 for the first time this season.“It’s those one-run ballgames,” Roberts said. “We play a lot of one-run ballgames. Now we’re finding a way to win them.”The one swing from Grandal certainly changed the forecast.Before he stepped to the plate, FanGraphs gave the Dodgers a 33.7 percent chance of winning as they faced six outs with a two-run deficit. After his homer, they had an 87.9 percent chance.“I tried to make a pitch inside to Grandal to get a double play and just left it out over the middle,” said Roark, who was removed after the homer. “If you make mistakes, they hit them far. I felt strong throughout the game. Usually, it boils down to one or two pitches.”The moment was a particular bright spot for Grandal, whose batting average has been below .200 since May 21.“This whole month, I feel like I’ve been hitting the ball pretty well,” Grandal said. “I’ve just never been able to get it in the air. This game is about inches and angles. When I look up and it’s over 100 mph, that’s what I try to do. I just try to hit the ball hard. So far, I feel like I’ve been doing a pretty good job at that. Obviously, they’re going to start falling at some point.”Grandal also had the winning RBI on Sunday, when he walked with the bases loaded in the ninth as a pinch-hitter.“This big hit might make him a little bit more confident out there,” Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir said of Grandal. “We know what he’s capable of.”Grandal might say bad luck is a factor. Grandal’s batting average on balls in play beginning Tuesday was .210, 64 points below his career average.Roberts offered a similar assessment.“If you look at the quality of the at-bats and the contact, it’s right there where it’s supposed to be,” he said.The Dodgers improved to 40-33 overall and kept pace with San Francisco in the National League West. The Giants routed the Pirates, 15-4, Tuesday night in Pittsburgh.One outing removed from throwing an inefficient 93 pitches to get through four innings, Dodgers starter Scott Kazmir produced a quality start.Kazmir held the Nationals to two runs and made it through six innings while throwing just four more pitches than he did the last time out.But it was a far less conventional quality start for Kazmir. Of the eight hits he allowed, two were home runs and four were doubles. He became the first Dodgers pitcher to allow so many extra-base hits with so few runs since 1940.“When guys are in scoring position, it’s your job to kind of bear down and make some pitches,” said Kazmir, who struck out four and walked two.Bryce Harper pounded Kazmir’s 92 mph fastball 378 feet to left field to put the Nationals ahead, 1-0, in the first inning.Espinosa hit one in the fifth inning, a leadoff blast that also carried into the bleachers in left. It was the 14th home run that Kazmir has allowed this season, sixth-most in the NL.Yet, as much as it looked like the game might get away from them, the Dodgers kept the Nationals from extending their lead.Kazmir gave up a double to his counterpart, Roark, in the next at-bat after facing Espinosa.Second baseman Chase Utley helped him out when he fielded a ground ball by Ben Revere and threw to third base, where Justin Turner made a tag on a diving Roark to keep a runner out of scoring position.Facing Ryan Zimmerman, Kazmir struck out the side to end the fifth.Before Zimmerman, he opted to walk the hot-hitting Daniel Murphy to load the bases.“Daniel’s one of the best hitters in baseball right now,” Roberts said. “Not only slugs, but drives runs in.”Closer Kenley Jansen, who surpassed Eric Gagne on the club’s all-time saves list on Monday, earned another one with a 12-pitch ninth inning, getting Harper to ground out to end it. It was his 21st save in 24 attempts.last_img read more

Dodgers’ rotation is in flux because of weather, off days

first_imgPHOENIX — On “Weather and Science Day” at Chase Field, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and his staff were thinking about weather and the inexact science of a starting rotation.After an off day Thursday, the Dodgers start a three-game series in San Francisco on Friday where rain is almost a certainty – has called its shot, putting the chance of rain at 100 percent. The only certainties in the Dodgers’ pitching plans are that left-hander Clayton Kershaw will start Sunday on normal rest – and someone will get skipped.“If there is a rainout then we have to kind of pivot and figure out who we want to throw,” Roberts said in sunny Arizona on Wednesday. “There’s some moving parts where we don’t have a whole lot of clarity.”Both right-hander Kenta Maeda and left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu are candidates to be skipped in the rotation this weekend. Maeda was available in the Dodgers’ bullpen Wednesday “for coverage,” Roberts said, after Dodgers relievers pitched 23-2/3 innings in the first six games of the season, almost half of them (10-2/3) in Monday’s 15-inning game. “He can defend over there,” Roberts said. “He’s played, maybe not a lot of games there in the majors, but in his history in the minors and winter ball. So he feels comfortable over there.”Roberts said Hernandez could make intermittent starts at first base this season. The Dodgers have limited options for backup first basemen – the left-handed Chase Utley and right-handed hitters Kyle Farmer and Hernandez. Roberts said this spring Hernandez had earned more playing time. Spelling Bellinger at first base occasionally against left-handed pitchers could give Hernandez some more at-bats.“I think so. I think if you look at when we would give Cody a day, it would be potentially against a left-hander,” Roberts said. “With what Kike’s done at the end of last year, throughout the spring, I really just see there’s been a change in approach, mechanics. When he plays he always seems to do something to help you win a baseball game. To have the versatility and the openness from him really makes me feel confident. He’s a guy I just really try to find ways to get him in the lineup.”ALSORoberts said left-hander Julio Urias took a few days off from his throwing program after having his tonsils removed. Urias had progressed to throwing on flat ground. He has not been cleared to throw off a mound yet and is not expected to return until the second half of this season after undergoing major shoulder surgery last June. … Justin Turner (wrist) and Tom Koehler (shoulder) will stay in Arizona when the Dodgers leave for San Francisco and continue their rehabs at the training complex in Glendale. … Top pitching prospect Walker Buehler is scheduled to start the season opener for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Kenta Maeda, 1-0, 0.00 ERA) at Giants (LHP Derek Holland, 0-1, 5.40), Friday, 7:15 p.m., SNLA, 570 AM The right-hander was not needed in the 3-0 loss and will make the start Friday in San Francisco – “weather pending,” Roberts said after Wednesday’s game.Left-hander Rich Hill is penciled in to start Saturday’s game with Ryu getting skipped in the rotation. A rainout Friday could result in a doubleheader – though the teams are more likely to make the game up later in the season – and muddle the Dodgers’ rotation. Both Maeda and Ryu could emerge from the weekend without another starting assignment until well into next week. The Dodgers play just five games in the next eight days with off days coming on Monday and Thursday of next week.“I appreciate the way that there are off days,” Roberts said. “But where they are for us right now it’s not ideal. I guess it beats (playing) 21 days in a row.”FIRST BASERoberts said he wanted to give each of his regulars a day off as the Dodgers started the season with seven consecutive games. He held to his promise – except with Yasiel Puig. Puig has started each of the Dodgers’ first seven games.Cody Bellinger got his first day off Wednesday. Kike’ Hernandez started in his place. It was Hernandez’s third big-league start at first base. He started there twice last season (once in June, once in July) and has played there some during winter ball.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
