Game 12 Thread: April 15 vs. Padres, 5.05p

According to Inside the Dodgers, tickets are still available for this evening's game.

Dodgers start Randy Wolf, LHP (1-1, 3.75 ERA) vs. Chris Young, RHP (1-0, 2.13 ERA)

Dodgers: 7-4 (T-2nd place NL West, 0.5 GB, L1)
Padres: 7-4 (T-2nd place NL West, 0.5 GB, W1)

From Dodgers.com, the scouting report on the starters:

Dodgers: Wolf kept the ball in the park against the Giants, outpitching Barry Zito, and the only run he allowed should have been unearned. Wolf scattered three hits over six innings and allowed Barry Bonds' only one drive off the wall.

Padres: After giving up three runs over 5 2/3 innings in his first start, Young felt much better about his second start, shutting out the Giants for seven innings and getting his first win of the season on Monday. The 6-foot-10 right-hander has 24 consecutive road starts without a defeat coming into his third start of 2007.

You guys are on your own tonight. Don't burn the place down.

Eric Karros said...

anybody here tonight? Checking in from Mexico...

Alex Cora said...

Wow, we need more runs with the bases loaded. But I'll take 3-0 dodgers

Eric Karros said...

First time this season game is on TV for me. Spanish telecast, but I'll take it. #42 up to bat...

Alex Cora said...

Too bad you dont get to see Joe Morgan be smooth in the booth while interviewing Rachel Robinson, while Miller looks like he is sweating bullets. Nice hustle by Martin.

Alex Cora said...

They are really running against the Padres. Remember the days of Tracey and his station to station base running? Go Ethier, maybe this will break you out of your slump.

Eric Karros said...

Oddly, I hear Morgan's voice running through my head anyways. Nice 2-run single.

Eric Karros said...

Bases loaded no outs. I'm going downstairs for a second. When I return I want to see at least 2 more runs on the board.

Eric Karros said...

Padres are now up and the score is still 5-1? What happened?

Eric Karros said...

Ok, gotta check out for awhile. Will try to check back in before end of game -

Steve Sax said...

Watching this game with all the commentary and interviews is really making the game experience very odd. I'm happy to hear from Newcombe and such, but I can't tell what the pace and flow of the game is.

Steve Sax said...

Boy, that weather looks great out there. Raining cats and dogs out here...

Steve Sax said...

Pierre up w/ 2 out and RISP...any wagers?

Steve Sax said...

Yeah, exactly. Popup to the pitcher's mound. I am really starting to feel bad for Pierre, it's so pathetic at this point.

Alex Cora said...

Think it is too early to name our new 3rd baseman? BTW, how is Valdez become such a good hitter. Looks like he hit .198 in 2005. What the hell did he do in 2006 - go on the bonds diet?

Alex Cora said...

Wow, Wolf looks sharp.

Alex Cora said...

Did you know...Jose Cruz can pull the Steve Finley if he gets picked up by the Colorado Rockies, he will have played for all NL West teams.

Alex Cora said...

That's a pretty funny comment by Frank Robinson - "I pride myself on knowing the player's names, however I don't know this guy's name, but #42 is haveing a great night." Sweet.

Steve Sax said...

I really am having a hard time following the game with all this commentary.

Alex Cora said...

What does Dave Winfield have to do with Jackie Robinson Day?

Alex Cora said...

Slump over for Ethier??? He crushed that ball.

Damon said...

im happy ethier is finally getting it going

Steve Sax said...

Go Dodgers! 9-3, another series win.

Why was Takashi Saito brought in to pitch?

Steve Sax said...

Looks like we've found ourself a third baseman...named Wilson!

Not good news for our favorite, Mr. Loney, though.

Damon said...

saito hasn't pitched in a couple of days and needed the work

DodgerFan in Idaho said...

Doesn't anyone find it a bit strange that Derek Lowe is wearing a captain's "C" on his jersey? What... are we playing hockey jersey now? And since when do the Dodgers ever designate someone as a "Captain" on their team? Simply absurd...

...and oh, let's not forget about that little incident two years ago. I thought captain's were supposed to be character guys...

Damon said...

OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN
