Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, on what today showed him about a potential World Series matchup: "There's a lot of talent all over the field. Some veterans that can play the game the right way, and some young players that are gonna be the future of this game. It's a lot of talent. Two great, iconic, storied franchises. You can feel the emotion, the energy, from both dugouts, as well as the stadium."

In an aside with Kenley Jansen, I read him Gleyber Torres' comments on his run not scoring. Torres: “I didn't see an umpire call time. I'm a little bit surprised I had to come back to third base. I don't know what's wrong with the umpires today.” Jansen's reaction: “Once I saw Muncy went down, I called time out right away. The home plate umpire gave me time. I didn't see when Torres took off. But I am not going to criticize the umpires. If things are not going my way, I am not going to criticize them, and if things go my way, it is what it is. They're doing their best out there.”

Ultimately, the ninth-inning tying run was kept from scoring because Kenley Jansen put his arms up to signal timeout. Umpires ruled that he did it before the runner started; the Yankees disagreed. "He got hit pretty hard," Jansen said of Max Muncy, "and that's what you have to do for a teammate."

Dodgers 2B Max Muncy laughed and said he pulled something of a "soccer" move so the umpires could call timeout and prevent the runner from scoring in the ninth. "He still got me good, it still hurt, so it wasn't entirely fake. But there might have been a little acting class in there."

The Yankees loaded the bases with one out on three well-placed grounders, but Kenley Jansen came back to strike out Mike Tauchman and Gary Sanchez. The Dodgers win, 2-1. They're 86-45, two wins better than the Yankees for baseball's best record.

Max Muncy got leveled by Brett Gardner while trying to turn a game-ending double play and a faint "Yankees suck" chant broke out. Muncy stayed in the game and there was no beef, but the out call was overturned.

Kenley Jansen spoke passionately the day after his blown save against the Blue Jays about how he wasn't going to lose confidence in himself and wanted to pitch with a positive attitude. He also talked about how much he was looking forward to facing the Yankees. Now is his chance.

Joe Kelly and Pedro Baez kept the Yankees scoreless in the sixth and seventh inning, stranding a couple of baserunners along the way. The Dodgers' bullpen has a 3.59 ERA since the start of June.

Through 5, the Dodgers have a two-run homer from Justin Turner, his 23rd this season, but nothing else. The Yankees have only a solo homer by Aaron Judge. CC Sabathia and Tony Gonsolin are each out of the game.

Aaron Judge hits a monster shot to dead center for his 98th career HR. It's the 58th home run for the Yankees this month of August, tying the Major League record, done twice, by Baltimore in May 1987 (28G) and Seattle in May 1999 (27G).

Two of the Dodgers' biggest injury concerns are making progress. OF Alex Verdugo has begun baseball activities in Arizona, and the hope is that he will be active shortly after the start of September. SP Rich Hill got off the mound today, throwing 20 pitches, and will next spin breaking balls in a bullpen session.

Hyun-Jin Ryu has already thrown his most innings in six years and, coincidentally or not, has struggled through his last two starts. Skipping an upcoming turn, or prolonging his rest between starts, is an option moving forward.
