Bats Coming Alive

Up until Game 5 it was pitching, as well as missed opportunities that played into this being a low scoring series. The bats finally came alive in Game 4 as the Cards slugged 2 home runs and the Blue would hit into 3 double plays. Wednesday it was the Dodgers, on the brink of elimination, who brought the bats to the yard, cranking 4 home runs, a post season single game club record, 2 by Gonzalez, and 1 each by Crawford and A.J. Ellis, as the Dodgers staved off elimination en route to a 6-4 win, sending this NLCS back to St Louis for Game 6…. Yesterday, it was the Cardinals turn to miss some opportunities, blowing an early bases loaded no out opportunity to put a dagger into the hearts of Dodgers fans…. After tying the game at 2 in the top of the 3rd, Yadier Molina would again ground into an inning ending double play, and Zack Greinke would not allow another hit until his departure after the 7th…. I said before and throughout the series that one of the keys would be which team gets that clutch hit. St Louis had done just enough to position themselves to punch their ticket to the World Series, and Zack Greinke, while not on his best, grinded it out . So now, with Kershaw taking the hill in Game 6 in St. Louis against Cards rookie Michael Wacha, will it be the Dodgers turn, as they did, in Game 5, to do ” just enough ” to bring this to a decisive 7th game ?

The Power of L.A. Media ?

Four years ago, after Game 2 of the NLDS, the Matt Holliday game, I came across longtime KCBS sports reporter Jim Hill after the Dodgers stunningly beat the Cards to take a 2 games to none lead in that series….hill The Dodgers would wrap it up in St. Louis, sweeping the Cards 3 straight. Wednesday before the game, I come across Fred Roggin, with the same except this time stained rally towel from Game 2 of the 2009 NLDS that Adam Wainwright gives us so much credit for…. roggin Deja vu going into St Louis ? We shall see…

And Finally….
