Will Smith makes it 3 rookies in a row to walk it off

The Rockies came to LA 10 games back, a sizable deficit, but one we’ve seen overcome plenty of times. Here is how the three games ended:
Matt Beaty walk-off home run
Alex Verdugo walk-off home run
Will Smith walk-off home run
Three rookies, three home runs, three walk-offs, 13 game lead. This was only Will Smith’s 7th major league game and he already has two walk-off home runs.

Alex Cora explains why teams don’t treat rookies like crap anymore

Prior to the Red Sox’ game against the A’s the Red Sox manager reflected on just how differently first-year players are treated from when Cora broke into the big leagues 21 years ago.

“You have to include them,” the manager said. “They’re a part of it, and you’ve got to teach him the right way. I was taught a different way. You look back and sometimes it wasn’t fun. You’re part of the team. You come here to contribute and they treat you this way? I think they’re in a better place right now.
