A girl soon to turn 2 was struck in the head 9/20/17 by a foul liner at Yankee Stadium, had skull fractures & brain bleeds and was in the ICU with a feeding tube & seizure monitors. Exactly a year later, her father Geoff Jacobson told ESPN: "Progress has continued. While some things will be monitored for years to come, my daughter gets to go about her days like your average toddler. It's been a long and stressful year, but my wife and I got to hug our daughter tight this morning, so it's hard to feel anything less than blessed." Unlike the minors & colleges, all 30 MLB parks now have safety netting to at least the far ends of both dugouts. "I'm not quite sure how the events of a year ago didn't inspire ballparks at all levels to extend netting and evaluate safety," Jacobson said. "It was our hope that my daughter would be the last of these injuries, but sadly, stadiums across America continue to roll the dice."

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts: "This game, this series, was emblematic of our ballclub, of how many people had their hands in this series to help win three games."

Has Yasiel Puig ever been on a roll like this? "Yes, in my house in video games."

Yasiel Puig left Tuesday's game early because his home was burglarized (for the fourth time since spring training of 2017). He tried to make it back to the game before it ended, but there was too much traffic. "My pilot's not home," he said. "He's on vacation."

Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers' hero tonight: "We're going to win the West again and go to the playoffs."

The Dodgers win, 5-2, and sweep a crucial three-game series against the Rockies. They have won seven of their last eight games and now own a season-high 2 1/2-game lead in the NL West.

Again: Yasiel Puig has drastic reverse splits these last two years. The Rockies left a righty in to face him, with 1B open, then went to a lefty after he hit the home run. Doesn't make sense.

Yasiel Puig is out of his mind. A pinch-hit three-run homer, giving the Dodgers a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. It is his sixth home run in his last 18 at-bats.

Walker Buehler completed six innings despite a 36-pitch first, striking out 12 batters and allowing two unearned runs. He has reached 140 2/3 innings for the season, but whatever innings limit he carried into it has seemingly been forgotten now. He is, basically, the Dodgers' co-ace.

Before greeting grandparents, parents, siblings and friends in the tunnel after Wednesday's game, Justus Sheffield admitted he was still trying to calm his nerves. He's still excited about his MLB debut. He even heard the Bleacher Creatures chant his name in the middle of his ninth inning. "That's how you know I wasn't really locked in," he joked. At points, he was so nervous he thought his hand was shaking and he was balking. As for the long Mookie Betts foul ball, he's known Betts (who gave him a head nod before the AB) a while. He definitely didn't want to give up a homer to him in his debut.
