Recap: Kazmir Strikes Out 10 in 6-1 Victory Over Rockies

Saturday was a great day in DodgerLand because our beloved Corey Seager was named National League Rookie of the Month! Besides that, the day before we smoked the Rockies 5-0 and witnessed a promising outing from Bud Norris.

Saturday’s game against the Rockies would be no different. Kazmir put on a spectacle going 6 innings and striking out 10 and the offense was alive from start to finish. Here are the highlights!

Before the game, the annual Old Timers game took place. Today’s first pitch was thrown by the Tri-MVPs being that it was their bobble head night!

Dodgers’ bats got off to a quick start and drove in two in the bottom of the first thanks to AGon and Puig!

The bats would come back in the bottom of the third when Turner doubled, AGon walked, and Thompson doubled them both in!

Kazmir would come out after 6 but what an amazing 6 innings those were!

In the bottom of the seventh, Howie would double, Seager would walk, and Turner would single only for AGon to bring in Howie on a sac fly and Seager to score on a wild pitch!

These highlights have been filled with nothing but boys in blue, but unfortunately the Rockies would pick up one in the top of the ninth to avoid the back to back shutouts.

Arenado’s home run would be the only noise in the inning and the Dodgers take the second game of the series!

The Dodgers are now only 5 games back of the Giants! Sunday’s game is at 1:10 PM PST and Brandon McCarthy will be making his first major league start in over a year! Be sure to catch the play by play by following us on twitter @DodgersNation! Go Blue!

  1. Nice job by Kazmir who might just be worth that ridiculous contract he signed yet. Another bomb of Hatcher. He needs to be gone, another failed FAZTER pick up. Along with Grandal. Seager right now if the leading ROY candidate, but lets not jinx the kid…
