Rich Hill pitched an amazing game last night, throwing just over nine innings and allowed one earned run on one hit. The only hit he allowed was a walk-off home run by Josh Harrison in the tenth inning.
RECAP: Rich Hill tosses nine no-hit innings but Pirates hit a walk-off home run in extras to take Game 3, 1-0.

If you look at the game, Hill shouldn’t have even been pitching the tenth inning. In fact, no Dodger pitch should have been pitching the tenth. The Dodgers wasted too many opportunities to score, resulting in a 1-0 loss.
The Dodgers have the game away, going 0-9 with runners in scoring position and leaving eleven runners on base. In the third inning, the Dodgers had runners on first and second with two outs and Curtis Granderson grounded out. Dodgers batters grounded into inning-ending double-plays in both the fifth and sixth innings. In the seventh, the Dodgers had runners on first and second when Corey Seager grounded out. The Dodgers had, even more, chances to score but they wasted all of them.
Well, the Dodgers have a chance to win the series this afternoon, but only if they can score. All we can do is hope that they cash in when they get runners on base.
