San Francisco Giants: Forcing late start on Monday-fair or foul?

San Francisco Giants: Forcing late start on Monday-fair or foul?

Manager Bud Black said he could be activated as soon as Sunday. Moreover, the longer the Aaron Sanchez story goes, the worse it seems to get.

My computer's clock showed 5:11 a.m. when I began writing this column. He's the night editor at the Associated Press back in New York, where it's 5 a.m. He usually works until the last game is over.

Nothing has changed in Toronto.

Estrada (8-8) allowed four hits, no walks and two runs.

For the Rockies on Monday night, they will have rookie left-hander Kyle Freeland on the mound.

When these teams last met, on the final weekend of July, the Dodgers were 74-31 following a three-game sweep. The fall of the Dodgers has been shocking.

In Zimmer's situation, his team was in the midst of an historic 17-game winning streak and is battling the Astros for the best record in the league.

San Francisco would get within a run in the bottom of the seventh after a leadoff double by Denard Span and a single by Joe Panik, but Ross Stripling got Buster Posey to ground into a double play to end the inning.

Those Red Sox were 7-20 in September.

But they maintained a more-runs-to-less-runs status through the end of the ninth inning, and actually won a game and things got hazy and the snow melted from mountaintops and the rivers ran with Dodger Blue as the seemingly impossible because possible.

Rockies 5, Diamondbacks 4: Nolan Arenado hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the eighth inning and drove in four runs in Colorado's 5-4 victory over Arizona. L.A.'s 11-game losing streak becomes the longest since the team arrived from Brooklyn, topping 10-game skids in 1961 and '92 (the 1944 Brooklyn Dodgers lost 16 straight at one point). He's in a good place, having gone 4-2 with a 2.55 ERA over his last seven starts, including beating the Los Angeles Dodgers and ace Clayton Kershaw on Thursday when Gray gave up one run on four hits over six innings.

But Darvish has been ordinary and sometimes lousy, lacking command. He only has started two games since being back, winning one, and holding a 3.72 ERA with 14 strikeouts across those two starts. They tried to fight the current, but it was too strong.

The Dodgers will still make the playoffs, and almost certainly win their division.

Of course, it's not like the Dodgers should be expecting hand-outs from the Giants this late in the season, especially if they're already struggling.

The Dodgers didn't have to sweat much when falling behind in the game earlier in the season.

Next year's schedule looks a lot different than recent schedules, owing to a change in the collective bargaining agreement designed to provide more days off by lengthening the season.

The over-under total is just 6 and 1//2 runs, meaning oddsmakers expect a low-scoring game and giving another indicator that betting on San Francisco at plus-220 has value.

"A tie was never an acceptable result of a baseball game", explained Steve Hirdt, executive vice president at the Elias Sports Bureau, Major League Baseball's official record keeper. Against teams they've played at least four times, the Dodgers have their worst ERA against the D-backs at 5.15.

There's paranoia throughout the City of Angels, as the Dodgers' collapse is borderline catastrophic. Unless it's Game 7 of the World Series, probably not.
