    Aside from all the obvious stuff, the best thing for me was when Robots came out to lift Scherzer, he didn't give him the ball..he shook hands with him.
    Yeah, for me, that rates up there with Bobby Valentine and his Groucho Marx disguise after getting tossed.

    Being one the biggest critics of Roberts and Bellinger, I have to give them both credit for this game. Roberts definitely pushed all the right buttons, and Bellinger extended innings thrice. How many times have we seen Cody flail away at pitches out of the zone? Not yesterday - he was picking up the location well.

    So happy for CT. He needed that. Hopefully the momentum carries over.

    Urias was warming in the pen and was probably pitching the 10th. That would've wrecked havoc on our rotation in the NLDS. So awesome that we avoided that with the 9th inning walk off.

    Joe West - I actually think he called a good game. Hoping we see him again before he retires, because the alternative probably means elimination.

    I'm not a fan of champagne celebrations early in the playoffs, but now that they won it last year, it doesn't bother me as much.

    Something tells me we'll see a sharper Scherzer in game 3. Just a hunch.

    Roster construction was sophmoric, imo.
    Had that game not had it's classical, heroic ending, we would have a huge disadvantage in a long game. Wou!ld have had to use Julio for God knows how long, definitely affecting his use against the SFags on Saturday, unless your starting Gonsolin. Could have rendered Urias gassed and overused by limiting his usable roster pitchers. That's the options we easily could have had...none at all. We got lucky at the very end.
    After burning Lux, the HoF group of Mc Kinstry, Sousa, and Raley were useless...especially since Pujols was going to swing at any pitch in the vicinity of the K zone with a 3-0 count.
    Had to be one of the greatest games ever.

    espn…

    As Wednesday's bottom of the ninth continued to play out, Scherzer sat next to Joe Kelly -- the man who relieved Scherzer, getting the Dodgers out of a two-on, one-out jam in the fifth -- and offered up another prediction. He said Bellinger would draw a walk and Taylor would follow with a home run, though Scherzer had Taylor driving a fastball to the opposite field as opposed to pulling a slider to left.

    Close enough.

    "I had that vision for him," Scherzer said of Taylor. "I've played with him and faced him and seen all this. I was like, 'This is the right man for the right spot, and he's gonna put a good swing on it.' Sure enough, he did."​

    Future Dodger Juan Soto looked pretty happy about the Taylor HR...

    Great clip!

    Kinda feel for Arenado, because I believe if he had his choice, he'd be wearing blue.

    Not to mean this as a dig on Kenley, but I'll admit I chuckled a bit... did anyone else pick up that he was the first to throw his hands up? Like he knew from experience that was gone.

    Edit: Actually, in Kenley's defense, the third base coach and possibly one other guy in the dugout beat him out on the reaction time.

    Huge HR and stealing home..still not as good as Taylor's walk off.
    But it was cool, right Jackie ?
