Dodgers' Justin Turner hit in hand by pitch, leaves game

Phillies could be plenty of fun to watch next season

They're all between the ages of 22 and 27.

The Phillies can choose to delay Kingery becoming eligible for free agency from 2023 to 2024 if they don't bring him up to the majors until the middle of May.

"To get this kind of experience is worth a lot", he said. "That's a big part of this year".

The Dodgers will finish the road trip on Thursday at 10:05 AM PT and will then head home for a weekend series against the Giants.

"It was situational things that helped us today", Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. That'll be at the forefront of our minds. But there was the opportunity open and he was able to take that final step. The results, not so good.

If you haven't noticed, the Phillies have been fairly good recently.

"These guys (the Dodgers' front office) have a lot of decisions to make". Shortstop Corey Seager, who had already fouled a ball off his right calf against the Washington Nationals, fouled a ball off his right ankle in Wednesday night's game.

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner is day-to-day with a hand contusion after being hit by a pitch during the first inning Thursday. These days, players with above-average power potential that don't get on base much just don't sell, and neither do powerless middle infielders. I think he only had played five or six games there. "So we'll see how that goes". "It's hard to teach somebody to do that". "I'm taking the same frame of mind after the last two injuries to come back the same way in September".

The young outfield of Aaron Altherr, Odubel Herrera and Nick Williams could all be keepers. They owe the fans one. Through the team's first 105 games, Dodgers relievers sported an aggregate 2.83 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Hoskins doubled in the fifth to give the Phillies a 4-2 lead. But Maikel Franco can hit line drives off the wall, Freddy Galvis should win a gold glove, and Cesar Hernandez has surfaced as a valuable leadoff hitter. Later on in the inning, Cody Bellinger would get an opportunity with two on and two out.

A natural shortstop, J.P. Crawford made three fine defensive plays at third base Thursday and drew three walks (seven in the past four outings). "Not that we can let up".

So it's one for his résumé going forward.

"It is something he has done his whole career - a good professional at-bat", Roberts said of Ethier.

Ethier, who has missed most of the season with a back problem, tied it with a home run in the seventh off reliever Ricardo Pinto (1-2) that made it 4-all.

The Dodgers, the majors' best team at 97-56, lowered to one their magic number for clinching their fifth straight NL West championship.
