“He’s been around the game for quite some time and when you understand the game, he’s got a good heartbeat,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, according to MLB.com. “He’s always kind of looking at the field and the game and understands the game, the scoreboard, but it’s an uncanny ability to slow things down.” 

The Dodgers and Giants wrap up their four-game series Thursday afternoon with first pitch scheduled for 3:45 p.m. ET.
