After Wednesday’s slate of games finished, the Los Angeles Dodgers still sat atop the National League West, but they saw their lead cut down to two games.
Coming off an emotional high by taking two of three games against the San Francisco Giants, the Dodgers had their momentum stopped by the Colorado Rockies. The Dodgers made headlines after a video surfaced of Matt Kemp yelling at Yasiel Puig in the dugout presumably for not going first to third base on a single.
When asked about the situation, Carl Crawford shrugged off the notion of it meaning anything serious. He explained teams endure some form of heated exchanges and anyone who suggested otherwise was being untruthful.
A.J. Ellis agreed with Crawford in that the Dodgers’ chemistry is not a problem. Ellis stated that Kemp was being a leader and simply trying to correct Puig on his mistake, which is key given the Dodgers’ pennant chase and postseason hopes.
As the last week or so of the season come to an end, the Dodgers be put to the test in order to fulfill the World Series aspirations they have had all season long.
