The Dodgers waited till the top of the ninth to win on a grand slam by the hot hitting Chris
Taylor. Rich hill only went 4 innings, then giving way to Stripling, Hatcher, a blown save by Shields, then
Brandon Morrow threw the 8 th to get the win and Jansen got the save. Once again the starter only goes
4, this has got to be taxing the relief core, or is a new strategy because the bats have been quiet not to
get too much behind?
Looking at Chris Taylors hot bat, is now hitting .328 with 7 homeruns with 23 rbi’s . His on base
percentage is .411 which lets us know he is getting on base a lot, and his OBS(On base percentage plus
slugging percentage) is .932 an Awesome number. His exit velocity is at 91 MPH and Launch angle is
10.34. This shows he is squaring up the ball and hitting low line drives. He’s a fastball hitter (52%) but
can hit the slider (16.4%) as well. 70% of the time he is swinging at balls in the strike zone . This shows
he has a good eye as he has walked 14.4% of the time.
