Game 65 Thread: June 12 vs. Mets, 7.10p

Dodgers start Hong-Chih Kuo, LHP (0-1, 4.85) vs. John Maine, RHP (6-3, 2.78).

Dodgers: 36-28 (3rd place NL West, 1.0 GB, W1)
Mets: 36-26 (1st place AL East, 2.0 GA, L3)

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

Dodgers: Kuo had his best outing of the season in his second start. He pitched six solid innings against the Padres, allowing one run on three hits. He walked four and struck out eight, tying a career high. He looked to be the winning pitcher when the Padres, trailing, 5-1, scored five runs in the bottom of the ninth. In that game against San Diego, Kuo pitched out of some tough jams early, leaving three runners in scoring position in the first three innings.

Mets: Maine did well in his last outing, allowing two runs in seven innings on Thursday against the Phillies at Shea Stadium. In nine of his 12 starts, the right-hander has permitted two earned runs or less. Maine ranks third in the NL East with a 1.85 ERA on the road. For his career, Maine is 1-0 against the Dogers; he pitched five innings with a 3.60 ERA in his start against them in 2006.

Furcal, SS
Pierre, CF
Nomar, 1B
Kent, 2B

ESPN GameCast is acting a little glitchy. Juan Pierre just vanished from the face of the earth!

Dammit, he's back.

Fighting for his job, Nomar gets a hit.

Q: What do the Dodgers and a bar have in common?

A: They both have a lot of singles.

Hmmm...I can't think of better joke than that right now.

Orel, probably the first time this year I'm watching a game on TV while you're on Gamecast.

Back to back to back hr's by Betemit, Kemp and Kuo. That Kuo batflip was epic.

The bat-toss by Kuo in slow-mo is sweet - it really is epic. Nice term. Sammy shuts them down in the 9th - should I get out the broom? Go Blue!
