That was awesome. I left the the television on the channel for the game, and left to do an errand where I thought for certain I'd get back before the game started. I was running a few minutes late, and thought I would miss the first pitch...given when the first pitch was supposed to occur. I got back, and walked in to see Vin Scully on the mound...in time to introduce Valenzuela, and to hear him say "It's time for Dodger Baseball" .

I'm a Bay Area native who now lives in the Houston metro, but I lived in Orange County for years. Even though I was an Angels fan as a third favorite at the time (first two will always be the Giants and the A's), I still enjoyed listening to Dodger games with Vin Scully on local radio when I lived there in the Southland.

It was nice to see the Dodgers come back regardless of losing. They got to Brandon McCarthy so it's not like I was surprised that happened. If Baez had just been decent the last month of the season he would have been in there instead.

I think the part that hurts is we had Verlander beat & didn't get a W to show for it. Now we'll probably face him again in Game 6 & I'm not sure I see him making those same mistakes again.

Great to see Vin Scully last night, I only wish the Dodgers could have won. Now time to sweep Houston at their home!

At the end of the day, there is no question that Roberts pulled Hill a lot earlier than he should have. Roberts was operating under the assumption that the pen would continue their lights out dominance. It's great to have that kind of confidence in your team. But this strategy left our pen stretched thin at the end of the game. It's as if Roberts didn't even consider the small possibility that the Astros, and their dominant offence, could come back. A deadly assumption at the end of the game.

Heck, I would also say that he pulled out Maeda a lot earlier than he should have as well. I mean, Maeda was a starting pitcher for the Dodgers for the last two seasons. Yet it seems as though Roberts has made up his mind that he should pitch in relief for more than 5 or 6 batters. I don't understand this one bit. It's good that the analytics has gotten the Dodgers to where they are at but at some point I think you need to look at your ballplayers instead of looking at the paper.

On the other hand I'm hoping that this game gets the Dodger bats to step back and realize what kind of offense we need to get this title back in LA. By that I'm talking about that offense we saw against Chicago where they ran the opposing pitch count up and consistently put runners on base and put some real pressure on the pitching to make some mistakes. That is Dodger baseball.

I think it almost goes without saying: he might have been the best and there have been a lot of good ones.

Regardless of the loss it was a great and exciting game. I don't think anyone left before it was over.

A radio host here in the Houston metro just said the same thing a few minutes ago.
