Drei’s Notes On a Scorecard…4/15/2017 Vs DiamondBacks…Celebrating Jackie Robinson

J Robinson Statue

This day would mark the 70th anniversary that Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier, opening the way not only for African-American baseball players, but for other international players as well. Fittingly, to celebrate this special day, the first ever statue at Dodger Stadium would honor Jackie Robinson…

Scorecards 4 15 2017

Dbacks Scorecard

Arizona would come into Dodger Stadium atop the NL West after a fast start that saw them win 7 of their first 10. DBacks SS Nick Ahmed would drive in all four runs for the Snakes. Kenta Maeda would strike out 5 but only last 4 innings, once again leaving the bullpen to go another long stretch. Fortunately, Alex Wood would pitch 3 1/3 stellar innings of shutout ball and Kenley Jansen would record the four out save…

Dodgers Scorecard 4 15 2017

Austin Barnes, getting the starting nod behind the dish, would crank his first big league home run off the LF foulpole…

It would be Puig’s 3 run shot in the home 8th that would put the game away…

On a personal note, in the 2 games Drei has been to this season, Puig has 8 RBI’s, 7 of those coming through the long ball…

The Dodgers 8-4 victory over the DBacks would be their 10th in a row at Dodger Stadium dating back to last season.

Though the bullpen would put in another stellar performance, my early season concern has to be how much longer can Dave Roberts continue to throw starters not named Kershaw on the hill and get 5 innings or less.

Both the Dodgers and DBacks would combine for 5 errors.

Despite posting 8 runs, the Blue would leave 11 runners on base. Leaving runners on base has also been an early season issue.

Colorado will be coming in to Dodger Stadium tomorrow night atop the NL West. Both the DBacks and Rockies got off fast starts with the Giants struggling early….

Scorecards !!! Scorecards ( With a Side of Penncakes )

Keeping score at the ol’ ballgame.  It seemes to be a lost art these days.  It’s something i’ve done since I learned the craft back back when I was a kid who couldn’t wait to get to the ballpark. ( Some things from our childhood never change do they ? )  The other night I had posted some in game updates from The Ravine as I kept score and it’s something I hope to.do more as the season goes.  Keeping score really isn’t difficult once you get the hang of it.  It’s a great way for me to stay connected to the game.  Plus they also make great personal souveniers.  Besides you just never know what surprises you may come up with on that night you GET YOUR SCORECARDS OUT  !!!  As for me a couple of highlights this season both involbed Scott Van Slyke, getting his first MLB RBI in his first big league at bat against the Giants, and of course his first Big League Home Run , a 3 run shot against the Cardinals, his dads former team.  That 3 run shot would be the game winner  !!!  Any of you keep score At The Old Ballgame  ?  What are your scorekeeping stories?
