One of the Dodger's relief pitchers they got from your Royals, Jonn.  Scott Alexander.

I'm beginning to think the Dodgers are spooked playing at their home ballpark in front of their fans this year.
Of course I don't know this for a fact, and how can you prove such a thing, but they have an awful record at
their home stadium this year and usually teams have their best records at home.  Last night we played the
Rockies and the Dodgers weren't hitting the ball at all. They managed one run in the 5th and the Rockies got
one in the 6th. After a tie score for two innings the Rockies got a run which turned out to be the winning run,
but they got it because the Dodgers made THREE errors, practically all at once. WTF's up with that!  The run
would not have scored if they'd only made TWO errors. I haven't heard that the fans are booing the team or
anything; maybe the team is still spooked by that 7th game WS loss, I don't know, but they need to win at
home, and against the teams in our own division. And stop making stupid errors. Especially 3 of them at once.

I mean, really.

And when you're doing poorly, everything seems against you. We had a chance in the bottom of the 9th to make
something happen. Matt Kemp hit a ball, got to first base, the throw went past the first baseman, it was thrown
back to first base and Kemp was called out because the umpire said he had made a "step" toward second as if
he was planning to run.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts and Kemp both tried to argue the first-base umpire’s call, but the play was
non-reviewable, so there really wasn’t anything they could do.  If you want to see what i'm talking about it's
at 6:30 on this video:

I think the umpire just wanted to go home.  And with that win, the Rockies moved into first place over the D'Backs.

Your Nationals beat the Padres, Fritz, so thank you for keeping us out of last place!
(The new Nationals player, Juan Soto, hit a home run, too.)

Great, Lyle!
