Game 72 Thread: June 20 vs. Nationals, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (10-1, 1.58) vs. Stephen Strasburg (10-0, 2.90). I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the Dodgers' offense won't be able to do much in the opening game of this series. And sadly, that probably has nothing to do with the fact that we're facing Strasburg, third in the majors with 118 Ks (teammate Max Scherzer, whom we won't see in this series, is second with 128; Kershaw leads with 133 Ks). It's because our team is 12th in the NL in OPS (Washington is 6th), and our best hitter is Corey Seager (30th) at .280; Daniel Murphy of the Nationals leads the NL with a .358 BA. ...

Game 64 Preview: Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox

Jordan Zimmermann looks to get the Tigers back on track against Chicago's Miguel Gonzalez. It's too early to worry about Jordan Zimmermann, but I wouldn't blame you if Tuesday's matchup gives you any pause. Since his narrow loss to former Tiger Max Scherzer on May 11, Zimmermann has a 7.04 ERA and .873 OPS against. This stretch is inflated by a pair of rough starts -- not to mention a week missed due to injury -- but it highlights a flaw that we've glossed over for most of the year: Zimmermann's strikeout rate is down, and bad things can happen when the other team puts the ball in play.
