Dodgers Offense Falls Flat in Loss to the Rockies
Saturday night was unfortuantely something that could have been expected for the Dodgers. Even with a new-look and high-powered offense, German Marquez has consistently given them fits over the years. This time was no different in Colorado.
Marquez held the Dodgers to just one run over the course of 7 strong innings. He struck out 5 and induced a whole lot of soft contact, most of which came on the ground. Los Angeles’ offense could not get it going against him, aside from a solo homerun off the bat of Austin Barnes.
Tony Gonsolin got the start in this one, needing 62 pitches to get through 3 innings of work. But to his credit, he allowed just 1 run and issued 1 walk. The Rockies would later get to the bullpen to beat the Dodgers. Blake Treinen gave up a solo homerun to Connor Joe in the 8th inning to give the Rockies the lead for good.

All told, the Dodgers tallied 7 hits and went 2-for-6 with runners in scoring position. That proved to not be enough as Colorado rolled past Los Angeles. With this type of lineup, that’s borderline unacceptable.
Up next, the Dodgers take on the Rockies again on Sunday afternoon. Julio Urias will get the ball for Los Angeles while facing off against Antonio Senzatela. They need a win, and the offense needs to break out.
Dodgers: Gavin Lux Really Impresses In Season Debut With Los Angeles
When are we gonna finally sit KOdy down? He is not adjusting his swing and he is nothing butt an automatic out!
Send Cody to AAA and call Jake Lamb, it’s the better choice right now
Can’t send a player that has 5 years experience to the minors without the players consent.
Has anyone noticed that they haven’t been hitting all spring? I hoped that would change when real games began, especially in Denver. No sense of urgency because there are so manh other guys in the lineup who are supposed to rake?
theyre probably down about the state of the starting pitching. and daves potential next moves would dishearten god.
I haven’t seen anything out of Betts and Muncy keeps swinging at pitchers pitches instead of strikes right down the middle. JTurn has had a slow start and TTurn isn’t doing much either. Cody’s confidence is completely jacked, I don’t want to bag on a guy who’s down, but he can’t hit the side of a barn. I haven’t really seen anyone but Freeman and Taylor hit the ball hard. I think the rest of the league is laughing at our ‘self proclaimed murderers row.’.
Watching paint dry was less torturing than the Dodgers offense on Saturday night.

Super impressed with Lux. Actually the entire line up is stronger bigger and better.
Agree with the others on KOdy. Best to leave him out completely until he fixes the swing. Nothing has changed from last year……….nothing at all. He continues to come up in critical situations, and not perform. At the very least, get him out of the middle of the BO, so the guys at the top have at least a chance of getting driven in by someone who has a much better chance of success. I realize the damage it would do to Kody’s confidence, but better to do that to one, is better than doing that for everyone on the team. Should have kept Pollock, he was the most productive, and most reliable, and he was also a right hand hitter, which is something now missing from lineup. The have a lineup that depends on someone in the middle to drive in those at the top, and the guys at the top continue to mostly get on base (I did say mostly), but what is missing is the guy in the middle, right where they put Kody in the lineup, and when he fails like he has been doing, the whole team fails.
When the hell are they going to wake up to the fact that Roberts is 99% of the problem…..
yeah. but hes the only minority candidate that its possible to hire. why else would they cling to him. friedman just wants to make friends and influence people by paying unworthy players on the marks dime.
