Dodgers and Braves go up 2-1 in their NLDS’s.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

The Dodgers put up a 7-spot in the top of the sixth and beat the Washington Nationals 10-4 to go up two games to one in their NLDS. The Nationals had Patrick Corbin, the Game 1 starter and losing pitcher, come out of the bullpen, and it was a disaster, Corbin giving up six runs in just 2/3 of an inning.  Justin Turner had a 3-run HR in that inning. Ex-Yankee Russell Martin had a 2-run HR in the ninth for LA, and 4 RBI for the game.

So far in the postseason, the Nationals have used Strasburg (WC game), Scherzer (Game 2 NLDS) and Corbin (Game 3 NLDS) out of the bullpen as well as starters. It obviously didn’t work last night with Corbin.

In the other NLDS, Former starter turned closer Carlos Martinez, who almost blew Game 1 for St Louis, giving up 3 runs in the bottom of the ninth when the Cardinals had a 4-run lead, DID blow Game 3. He came in with the Cardinals leading 1-0 in the top of the ninth, and gave up 3 runs—all with two out— as the Atlanta Braves beat St. Louis, 3-1, to go up two games to one in their series.

There could be four advances today if LA and Atlanta win, and Houston and the Yankees sweep their series by each winning Game 3 today.

Minor League Report. Clint Frazier forcing tough Yanks’ decision.

cropped-the-stadium-facade.jpg

You can’t carry 30 players on a 25-man roster. Even though the Yankees are off today and Thursday (with two games in Washington in between), they have a difficult decision to make soon.

AAA: CF Clint Frazier will be forcing the Yanks to make a difficult decision soon (not to mention the same goes for Jacoby Ellsbury and Brandon Drury whenever they may be ready for MLB play again). Frazier went 3 for 5 with a solo HR in SWB’s (16-19) 3-1 loss on Sunday. Since coming off the DL for his concussion, Frazier is hitting .323 in 16 games. 4 doubles, 2 triples, 4 HR, 5 RBI. 20 for 62. Meanwhile, at the MLB level, you have no room for him right now. Also in this game, SS Tyler Wade 1 for 4. 3B Drury 1 for 4. 1B Adam Lind 1 for 3.

It’s worth noting that Frazier 1) has been playing CF and 2) has been leading off for SWB. Brett Gardner has been hot lately, but Gardner 1) has just one HR, and that was hit on Opening Day and 2) despite 2 hits yesterday, is still hitting just .227. As for Aaron Hicks, he had two RBI yesterday, but he is still hitting just .215. It’s fair to say that both could be looking over their shoulders at Frazier. But how to make room for him?
