Game 71 Thread: June 20 @ Blue Jays, 4.07p

Dodgers start Hong-Chih Kuo, LHP (1-1, 3.60) vs. Roy Halladay, RHP (7-2, 4.37).

Dodgers: 40-30 (T-2nd place NL West, 1.5 GB, W1)
Blue Jays: 33-36 (3rd place AL East, 11.5 GB, L2)

From, the scouting report on the starters:

Dodgers: Kuo tipped his hand with six solid innings in a no-decision against the Padres last week and did even better against the Mets, allowing one run on five hits over seven innings. It was his second Major League victory and he punctuated it by hitting his first home run. He struck out four and walked only one pitching exclusively out of the stretch in his third Dodgers start of the season.

Blue Jays: Halladay seems to have gotten over a rough stretch that saw him allow 10 runs in four innings over a two-game span against the Rays and Dodgers. Since that time, Halladay has allowed just three earned runs over 13 1/3 innings and is now a perfect 3-0 with a 4.38 ERA since returning from an emergency appendectomy on May 31. Against the Nationals in his previous start, Halladay allowed just two runs on seven hits while striking out six over 7 1/3 innings. His only mistake of the game came in the eighth inning when he allowed a two-run homer left fielder Ryan Langerhans. Halladay is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers.

From Inside the Dodgers, the lineup:

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

Expecting the Dodgers to put up another ten spot tonight.

Kuo with the usual control problems. 2-0 Jays in the second.

Orel said...

Now 4-0 Jays. Not nice knowing this game is over in the second.

Orel said...

Oh wait, I forgot. The Dodgers are going to score 10 runs.

Orel said...

Frank Thomas is hacking. 4 straight fouls.

Orel said...

No wonder. Grand salami. 8-0 Jays, thank you and good night.

Orel said...

Did I say Dodgers will score ten? I guess I meant Blue Jays.

Alex Cora said...

WTF? Well, I guess Kemp and Loney will get some more PT.

Orel said...

Exact reverse of yesterday. 10-0 Jays.

Steve Sax said...

12-1 Jays. Nice effort, Dodgers, against a sub-.500 team.

Dodgers can't get an interleague road win...another reason to kibosh interleague play!
