12:00 am
justin turner scores. that makes it a 5-3 ball game, but peacock would settle down after that. gets the out there. four innings of relief, just like fingers used to do it. they take the series lead 2-1, and improve to a perfect 7-0 during the playoffs. the dodgers better fined a way to hit that astros pitching if they are going to make it competitive. >> hard to beat the astros at home, for sure. >> the warriors forgot five out-of-bounds plays, and they were not focused. >> we were talking about it earlier, anybody he picks and puts in the line-up seems to respond. they are probably still talking about the trip to china.
