Law: Players I was wrong about

Who saw Cardinals outfielder Harrison Bader or Oakland's Matt Chapman improving by leaps and bounds? Not Keith Law, who can admit his mistakes.

The Dodgers win, 5-2, and sweep a crucial three-game series against the Rockies. They have won seven of their last eight games and now own a season-high 2 1/2-game lead in the NL West.

Again: Yasiel Puig has drastic reverse splits these last two years. The Rockies left a righty in to face him, with 1B open, then went to a lefty after he hit the home run. Doesn't make sense.

Yasiel Puig is out of his mind. A pinch-hit three-run homer, giving the Dodgers a 5-2 lead in the seventh inning. It is his sixth home run in his last 18 at-bats.

Nolan Arenado has come up with five runners on base and struck out twice. He's playing through a sore shoulder and has really been struggling at the plate, hitting .200 over his past 22 games with three home runs.

Rockies LF Gerardo Parra did not move an inch. Matt Kemp launched one way over his head for his 20th home run this season. The Dodgers now have seven players with 20-plus home runs, a franchise record.

Walker Buehler faced seven batters, threw 36 pitches and allowed a couple of runs, on a two-out single by Ian Desmond, in the first inning. The Dodgers had a reliever, Zac Rosscup, warming in the bullpen. Buehler has allowed 2 runs or less in 8 of his last 9 starts.

Quite an adventure in the top of the first at Dodger Stadium. The Rockies load the bases with no outs, Walker Buehler nearly works out of the jam, but then Ian Desmond -- starting at shortstop -- grounds a hard-hit two-run single up the middle. Buehler ends up throwing 36 pitches. Looks one of those nights where we might see six or seven Dodgers relievers. Yay.

Rockies SS Trevor Story is "day-to-day," Bud Black said. He will report to the team's spring training complex to receive treatment tomorrow. "It truly is encouraging where he is," Black said.

Chris Taylor pointed his right index finger to the sky as he sprinted to first base and Dodger Stadium began to shake. A walk-off home run. The Dodgers win, 3-2, in 10, and are 1 1/2 up on the Rockies in the NL West.
