Dodgers Pitching Struggles Again, Bobby Miller Fails to Get Through 2 Innings

The Dodgers could not have asked for a worse start to this NLDS from their starting pitchers.

On Saturday in Game 1, it was Clayton Kershaw lasting just 0.1 innings, allowing six earned runs in the process. The Dodgers, of course, would never make the game close.

On Monday, it was now Bobby Miller’s turn for a short outing. The hard-throwing righty just couldn’t get outs against Arizona, who absolutely worked him across 1.2 innings of work.

Miller threw 52 pitches across his 1.2 innings, and allowed three earned runs before getting pulled for Brusdar Graterol.

Fortunately, Graterol was able to get the last out of the inning, keeping the lead at just 3-0 Diamondbacks over the Dodgers. But obviously, the much larger issue of starting pitching continues to haunt the Dodgers.

Entering this postseason, we knew starting pitching was going to be a concern. But getting just two combined innings from your top two starters in Games 1 and 2 of the NLDS is unprecedented.

Hopefully the Dodgers’ offense can get going and the bullpen is able to shut things down for Arizona. But even if LA wins this game, it’s hard to feel confident about them moving forward with their starting pitching playing the way they are.

  1. This is deja vu all over again. Lack of post season success and Roberts , two constants. It is a shame Roberts seems like a good guy but are you ok with no post season success again? You cannot be!
