2076 Season (8/13 – 8/16)

Los Angeles Lakers (71-43, .623, 1st NL West) @ Orlando City (54-60, .474, 5th NL East)
The Good:
  • Bullpen ERA – 3.37, 3rd
  • Zone Rating - +0.3, 3rd

The Bad:
  • OPS - .707, 11th
  • wOBA - .316, 11th
  • Home Runs – 75, 11th
  • Defensive Efficiency - .666, 11th

The Ugly:
SP Ethan Hardoon – 3-12, 5.86 ERA – 184th overall pick in 2064 by the Carolina Panthers; claimed off of waivers by Pittsburgh in 2071, signed a 1-year $890K deal with Orlando in the offseason. Hardoon has a great fastball and curveball but suffers from poor movement and average control.

115 of 162: Nat Millard (12-2, 2.85) @ Vicente De La Cruz (8-6, 5.07)
Loss, 2-0
. De La Cruz is sensational, pitches a 2-hit shutout for City. Nat Millard isn’t bad, per se, just not quite good enough – his 8-inning, 5-hit, 2-run performance is actually one of his better outings since early July.

Scoring Summary:
003: CF Masaharu Watanabe (ORL) hits a line-drive double, RF Abelardo Aguila (ORL) scores from second – Otto’s throw from CF is close. Skipper Ryan Rudnick argues the call to no avail – gets tossed for his shenanigans. City leads, 1-0.
007: C Gavin Roberts (ORL) draws a bases-loaded walk off of SP Nat Millard (LAL), 1B Tad Monroe scores from 3rd. City leads, 2-0.

Top Performers:
  1. SP Vicente De La Cruz (ORL) – 8.1 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K
  2. SP Nat Millard (LAL) – 8.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K
  3. C Gavin Roberts (ORL) – 1 for 2, RBI, BB

Bad News Bears: Pepper Grant was diagnosed with a hamstring strain. He’ll miss 6-7 weeks. This is super unfortunate, Pepper was having a good year for us. 3B Dontrell Gay was recalled from Compton to replace Mr. Grant. Depth – we have a little bit of that. We should be okay here, I think.

City of Compton: 2B Owen Mack, our 1st pick in this year’s draft (18th overall) out of Vandy, went 4 for 5 with a double, a homer, 2 RBI, and 3 runs in a 6-4 loss against the Columbus Bluejackets. Mack has hit 6 home runs for Compton so far, including 2 leadoff home runs.

. We get the split – a marginally acceptable result. Brisky comes through – always out there preening for the ladies, which can be annoying, but he has it dialed in pretty good of late.

Scoring Summary:
001: C Dom Cooke (LAL) hits a single on a 3-1 count, line drive with a 104.4 MPH EV, LF Lonzo Gonzo (LAL) scores from second – your boys got some wheels. He stole 2nd during this sequence as well. Lakers 1, City 0.

We split both of the series we played this week – we are consistently inconsistent – and drop back to #2 in the Weekly Power Ranking.
  1. Philadelphia 76ers
  2. Los Angeles Lakers
  3. Jacksonville Jaguars
  4. Phoenix Suns
  5. Los Angeles Galaxy

We'll make the trip to St. Louis (ranked 18th) for a 3-game set, followed by 3 at home against Toronto (ranked 8th)...
Be excellent to each other.
