Game 137 Thread: Aug 31 @ Snakes, 5p

Derek Lowe (10-11, 3.81) vs. Brandon Webb (19-5, 2.96).

COMMENTS: The Dodgers ended their Michael Phelpsian 8-game losing streak achievement last night, powered by two home runs from ManRam and a rare offensive outburst. Don't expect that kind of fireworks for the Dodgers tonight, as we face the D-backs' stopper in Brandon Webb, which means Derek Lowe once again will get no run support and small margin for error. A 1-9 roadtrip seems almost inevitable, right?

"A 1-9 roadtrip seems almost inevitable, right?"

Right. Although the Padres beat Webb last time out, so maybe we have a chance.

And maybe I'm going to win the lottery.

A 1-9 roadtrip?

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened.

karina said...

Ethier HR!

karina said...

Hope and faith is all we need...

karina said...

Manny walks...

karina said...

King James hits .400 against Webb. Interesting.

karina said...

Loney singles..

karina said...

Drew made a great play, King James was forced out, ManRam and Kemp at the corners...

Delino here with the whole Deshields clan -including Dog DeShields and Baby DeShields. Watching the game on my new Sony Z Series 46 inch. Drinking some Sam Adams. And oh yeah... Blake rules all. That jack put me ahead in fantasy b-ball this week. Thanks to Mora for getting hurt.

karina said...

Blake HR! Dodgers 4- Snakes 0

Let's go blue!

Delino DeShields said...

Never try to steal on Martin!

karina said...

Great throw by Martin, Drew was caught stealing

karina said...

Delino, congrats on your new hardware...a dodgers win is a great way to christen said equipment.

Delino DeShields said...

Do not throw meatballs to Lowe!

Delino DeShields said...

the TV's big enough to see fear in Webb's eyes.

Delino DeShields said...

Webb's pitches look so touchable, even Andruw could get a groundout off them.

Delino DeShields said...

that sucked

Delino DeShields said...

Baseball according to the Delino: When a pitcher looks like he's struggling, don't swing at the first pitch. But Loney's got his own SoSG t-shirt, so I won't get too mad at him.

karina said...

It's not good 'ol Webb. Our gain.

Delino DeShields said...

Great ad for tronix country - computers for the deadbeat set.

karina said...

I can't see the ad.

karina said...

Kemp singles, steals a base...sometimes i think he deserves more love from the fans.

Delino DeShields said...

SHOW THE FAN RUNNING ON THE FIELD!!! Not showing him only makes his message stronger.

karina said...

Sac-fly by DeWitt, Kemp scores,

Dodgers 5- Snakes 1

Berroa singled!

karina said...

What happened with the fan, Delino?

Delino DeShields said...

Webb's lucky he's not down by more. His pitching's just shoddy.

Delino DeShields said...

Karina - they said a fan ran on the field. But their M.O is not to show when this happens.

karina said...

OK, XDElino, I'm watching the game on ESPN en espanol and they didn't mention a thing. They were talking about instant replay, very interesting, by the way.

karina said...

Lowe: 30 pitches in 3 innings.

karina said...

edit: 38 pitches.

karina said...

My son martin stole second!

karina said...

Ethier doubles, son scores!

Dodgers 6- Snakes 0

Delino DeShields said...

Nice smack into the gap... great jog home!

Delino DeShields said...

Might as well face Manny = you ain't getting anyone else out

karina said...

Intentional walk for ManRam, what are you afraid of, Webb?

Delino DeShields said...

Perfectly hit error!

karina said...

Reynolds mismanaged a ball, which means a couple of runs for the Dodgers.

Dodgers 8- DBacks 0

Delino DeShields said...

Looked even worse in the replay

Orel said...

I just finished unclogging the kitchen sink and see the Dodgers lead 8-0. DODGERS LEAD 8-0! Excuse me while I pour cement down the garbage disposal.

Delino DeShields said...

Johan's matched Webb all season... with a lot less wins to show for it.

Neeebs said...

Yee Haw.

Delino DeShields said...

Joyce DeWitt lives.

Orel said...

I should probably go buy some lottery tickets too.

Delino DeShields said...

off topic... I'd be okay not seeing Beanie Wells against the Trojans in two weeks.

karina said...

Neeebs, definitely the gloves are working.

Orel, do you plan to unclog the kitchen sink everyday?

karina said...

Press has been very rough with Santana. It's true his WHIP increased, but he's had quality stars where the Mets didn't hit anything and the bullpen has blown 6 decisions for Santana.

karina said...

My countryman Ledezma is pitching. Hit him and hard, boys!

Delino DeShields said...

Full Count on LOWE... and he swings at ball four and five!

Orel said...

You are merciless, Karina. I like it!

Yes, I plan to quit my job and become a plumber, if that's what it takes.

karina said...

Lowe: 4 innings, 40 pitches.

I'm glad finally the Dodgers are giving the run support Lowe needs. I mean, 8 runs?, he could have won 3 games with the 8 runs they have scored so far

karina said...

After this awful week, these 8 runs put me on a greedy mode.

pieomine said...

Hey Y'all! It's the fiance. I am in London right now and I was shocked to turn the TV on (almost 3 a.m. and I can't sleep) and find our Dodgers being broadcast live! Now I really can't sleep. Much like unclogging a sink, I feel like me watching the game from the UK is helping to keep the Dodgers out front. I want to give a shout out to Erin (who is on a road trip), and I will continue watching as not to ruin anything.

karina said...

Hello, Christine!. Keep it going as the Dodgers lucky charm!

karina said...

King James singles!

karina said...

Arizona is playing bad news bears quality defense tonight.

Orel said...

Hi Christine! Watching the Dodgers in London at 3 a.m.—you're just about as hardcore as Erin!

Orel said...

Guys, I'm worried about this eight-run lead. It may not be enough.

pieomine said...

She has created a monster!!!!!!

karina said...

Don't worry, Orel. Lowe is pitching (:

karina said...

"Great minds think alike"

pieomine said...

Sweet!!!

karina said...

Why Sucksweeney?

I see Torre's point. With the 8-run lead and the great workload Lowe has been recently, it's better to rest him a little bit, however i'd rather see Lowe at the Pplate than Suckweeney.

karina said...

Has someone noticed Suckweeney has been taking more walks, hitting grounders and striking out less?

karina said...

There it goes the shoutout. Reynolds HR.

Booger said...

So, I know its been a rough week, but i think we are pulling out of it.

Its like in Top Gun, Maverick couldnt do it anymore at first. But then he did.

Hopefully the dodgers wont be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog shit.

Orel said...

Diamondbacks are in the DANGER ZONE!

Steve Sax said...

I stand corrected on my GT. Lowe pitched admirably, Webb couldn't stop the Dodgers' hit parade, and it looks like a surprising series win for the boys in blue!

karina said...

Dodgers win, Lowe threw a jewel, beat Brandon Webb...

Let's go blue!

karina said...

Orel, you could start buying lottery tickets.

Christine, i'm glad you stay awake to see the Dodgers win!, our lucky charm tonight (with the clogged Orel's kitchen sink!).

Orel said...

DODGERS WIN!
DODGERS WIN!
DODGERS WIN!

And they take the series in AZ! 2.5 back!
