Update (6:20 p.m.): Roberts said that Kershaw, Hill and Maeda will start Games 1, 2 and 3 of the National League Division Series against the Washington Nationals in that order. The starting assignment for Game 4 is to be determined. Maeda wanted two starts before the regular season ends, not one, which is why he’s starting tonight and not tomorrow.
Roberts discussed his season-ending rotation Tuesday afternoon:
The only run Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill allowed Tuesday night began its existence as a triple.
Eduardo Nuñez hit a deep fly ball that bounced off a camera just above the left field fence, off the top of the fence, and then back onto the field. A short review turned the hit from a triple into a home run. See for yourself:
It was the only run Hill allowed, and through seven innings it’s the only run for either team.
The turnaround time on making a T-shirt in 2016 is one of the underrated developments of the Information Age. On-demand screen tees — like Wikipedia entries and early seasons of The Office — leave no one longing for Blockbuster Video and slide rules.
