Just landed in Denver. Travel days like this usually don’t allow a lot of time for postgame reflection. I have a burning leftover quote from the Dodgers’ 14-4 win — a game that reflected the 2015 club’s burgeoning identity. (The box score is here.)
MILWAUKEE — Monday might be the only game the Dodgers lose among the four they play against the Brewers this week, and it would still sting as much as it does tonight. Clayton Kershaw is still stuck on 99 career wins. On Monday, he dominated for five innings and left with the Dodgers leading in the eighth. Maybe this is on Chris Hatcher, who talked after the game. Kershaw talked after the game too, and certainly seemed to put it on himself. He often does.
