Tie game. Dodgers are using the death by papercut strategy on Cole.

Baffles me that Cole can't strike anybody out with the stuff he has.

I would say once he gets better command of his off-speed pitches, you'll see an increase in strikeouts.

They showed a stat in first game where 79% of his pitches were fastballs. They were a high % of strikes but most major league hitters are going to put fastballs, no matter the speed, in play if it's a strike.

Also, Giants are first in Majors in fewest strikeouts and Dodgers are 8th.

It's been an issue for him. As perverse as it sounds, he may throw too many strikes. I think as soon as he trusts his breaking stuff a little more he'll pick up a few more Ks.

And now The Fort shows up the umpire and the batter by throwing to 3rd on what was a ball outside.

And now the Dodgers have two runners on base. Gerrit knows he doesn't have to give runs back immediately after getting them, right?

How many games started are required for a pitcher to be included in the all-time Maholm standings?

I thought for sure Wilson was going to give up a hit there so he could have a chance at scumbagging the win.

Presley and Mercer both making cases for starting jobs. Then again, Hopeless makes a case for Mercer too.

Snider's been making a case for Presley to stay up and to take a trip to Indy himself or (his own self as they say where I live)

I had no idea this game was on TBS. The guide shows The Wedding Date instead.
