Los Angeles Dodgers' Justin Turner hits a solo home run as San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, left, watches along with home plate umpire Carlos Torres during the fourth inning of a baseball game, Wednesday, Aug. 24, .
The Atlanta Braves' road trip rolls on to San Francisco as they open a three-game set against the Giants on Friday. They'd go on to lose in seven games to the Yankees in the World Series, but Giants fans could take solace in knowing they'd broken the hearts of the Dodgers to get there. Unity, loyalty and a sense of team be damned.
The Dodgers remain tied with the Giants for the most consecutive years with a no-hitter - all by Sandy Koufax - from 1962-65.
On his bobblehead night, it all came down to Seager to prevent Moore from making history.
"Yeah, there might be", Seager said. It's human nature to really miss a guy like that and be disappointed.
Enrique Hernandez, somewhat of a left-handed pitching sniper, agreed after going for 0-for-4. "When we started the game we were flat, and he was on tonight and we didn't make an adjustment".
Moore's 133 pitches represent a career-high as well as the most thrown by a pitcher in a single outing thus far in the 2016 season.
ST. LOUIS - Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright lost his glove trying to tag out Yoenis Cespedes and lost the game, too, when Alejandro De Aza homered and drove in five runs to send the New York Mets over St. Louis 10-6 Thursday night. That brought up Corey Seager, who battled and then blooped a single to shallow right.
When Moore returned to the dugout, Bochy pulled him aside. "You never want to get swept, I don't think under any circumstances, so for us to have a happy flight home, I'm definitely proud of the way things went today and the defense and putting up those runs to take the pressure off". But they know they will have an expanded roster, and more choices. It was Panik's eighth home run this season but his first since June 18, when he tagged Tampa Bay's Alex Colome. However, he struck out Turner looking and forced Adrian Gonzalez to ground out to end the inning. The game went into extra innings and would provide two of the biggest moments in the rivalry's history: the Dodgers loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th and would fail to score. It would have tied Carlos Ruiz, who was traded to the Dodgers earlier Thursday, and Jason Varitek for most by a catcher in Major League Baseball history. Chicago. He has a win against the Cubs when he was with the Braves earlier this year. Lefty Jon Lester will start in the series finale Sunday.
"For Corey to spoil that no-hitter was good for us", Manager Dave Roberts said. "I know what a great opportunity you have here ..." He threw 72 strikes to 23 balls.
The Giants acquired Moore because he was the kind of pitcher they couldn't dream to find, let alone afford, on the free-agent market: a left-hander with a plus curveball, a mid-90s fastball and an affordable contract with club options through 2019.
He is expected to have one of those in the coming days, Bochy said. "Tip your hat to him".
Bochy said that he held a team meeting prior to Tuesday s series opener in which he reminded players how battle-tested they are, and how they have come through tough times.
