What Had Happened Was: 10/19/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
The Los Angeles Dodgers blanked the Chicago Cubs, 6-0, in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series on Tuesday night to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Dodgers starter Rich Hill allowed only two hits and struck out six batters in six innings pitched. The man was feeling it.
Hill’s curveball was mesmerizing both the batters and fans.

So, just two hits against fellow Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the previous game and four hits total Tuesday night gives the Cubs … not a lot of hits.
The last two games we have 6 hits with 0 runs. LA has 13 hits with 7 runs. It is absolutely pathetic.

Well, there is always next game.
First-time nominees Joan Baez, Bad Brains, Pearl Jam, Depeche Mode and Tupac Shakur are among those being considered for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class of 2017. Shakur was murdered 20 years ago and would be just the sixth hip-hop artist inducted.

Frank Ocean’s albums aren’t going to be up for a Grammy anytime soon. Not because the albums aren’t good, but rather because Ocean forgot to submit them. Tragic. But are we really surprised?
