Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error ARLINGTON, Texas >> Dodgers manager Don Mattingly surveyed the vast power alleys of Globe Life Park for the first time this season on Monday afternoon. The Texas Rangers’ home park reminded him of Coors Field.“The ball jumps in that right-center gap; a lot of hits here,” Mattingly said. “You want to keep guys off base as much as possible. You have to deal with the heat a little bit. It’s not something we’re used to.”Dodgers pitcher Juan Nicasio surveyed the temperature, which would fall to 86 degrees Fahrenheit by game time. He said it reminded him of his home country, the Dominican Republic, with maybe a little more humidity.Carlos Frias, the Dodgers’ starting pitcher, has pitched in Coors Field and grew up in the Dominican Republic. Other than not having to hit — probably a relief, since Frias has one hit in 24 career plate appearances — Frias should have been very much accustomed to the conditions. Frias defied the scouting report. He went ahead and allowed baserunners in four of the six innings he pitched. Four scored off him in the sixth, and the Dodgers went on to lose 4-1 to the Texas Rangers.The Dodgers got seven hits, but also hit into four double plays. One of the seven was a 417-foot home run by Yasmani Grandal in the eighth inning off reliever Tanner Scheppers.But they could do nothing against Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo, who allowed four hits and walked three batters in seven innings. The Dodgers went 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position as a team.Yasiel Puig finished 0 for 4 with three strikeouts. After the third strikeout, he snapped his bat in half over his leg and took out his remaining anger on a light fixture in the visitors’ dugout.Frias wasn’t entirely to blame. Adam Liberatore inherited two runners in the sixth inning with one out. Rookie Rougned Odor promptly belted a two-run single to put the game out of reach — at least, for a Dodgers team that seemed weary after a mechanical mishap on the team plane forced them to land early Monday morning in Dallas. read more
