Andre Ethier HR!

Orel said...

Wow, Haren just walked Lowe with a man on. Let's make him pay, Russell.

Orel said...

Martin RBI! 2-0 Dodgers!

karina said...

Martin RBI-double, that's my son!

He listened to you, Orel.

Orel said...

Furcal's in the dugout!

Orel said...

Your son is very obedient!

Orel said...

Andre makes it 4-0! All with two outs!

Orel said...

C'mon Lowe, don't let this lead spoil you.

Orel said...

Russell with another bad throw on a stolen base. Berroa backs up the play, though.

Orel said...

Lowe can't even throw strikes to Haren. Returning the favor, I suppose.

Orel said...

There we go. Walk, SB, K, K. Two out.

Orel said...

Lowe strikes out the side!

Orel said...

Lowe gives up his first hit...in the 4th.

Steve Sax said...

I don't know how we got three more runs in the second?!?!

4-0 Dodgers

karina said...

Ethier has drove 3 of the 4 runs. I wonder if Torre asks himself what he was thinking when he started Pierre over Ethier.

ESPNdeportes announcer:

"Russell Martin can do it all".

Indeed, that's why i love him like a son...and is Freddy Krueger's nightmare.

karina said...

Ethier RBI double.

Dodgers 5- D'Backs 0

CRACK (Ethier vs. Haren)

Orel said...

Kemp walks!

karina said...

DeWitt GIDP.

There's lots of love for Rocky around tonight.

Orel said...

Is Mary Hart the Dodgers' good luck charm?

Orel said...

Manny flies in from left to make the running catch!

Orel said...

76 pitches for Lowe through six. He might be giving the bullpen some valuable rest.

Orel said...

Anybody know what Lowe's AB music is? It's a hip-hop tune.

karina said...

I'd love if Lowe is signed again.

Orel said...

Russell walks, Ethier up!

Orel said...

Karina, you worried about Big Z?

Orel said...

"Few folks see Derek Lowe returning to the Dodgers next year. A free agent, Lowe is looking for the magic of the 2004 Red Sox, a magic that is tough to duplicate."

Orel said...

Ethier so close to the cycle!

Orel said...

Lowe with 86 pitches through seven. Torre must be thinking CG.

Orel said...

Manny is quietly going hitless. Good think Ethier is picking up his slack.

karina said...

Yes, i am. He's one of my favorites, besides he's the ace of my fantasy team.

However, i've got Lowe ;)

Orel said...

Rancho Ardiendo!

karina said...

Dodgers 7- D'Backs 0

Orel said...

7-0!

Orel said...

Hu in for DeWitt at second. Didn't know he could play second.

Orel said...

Torre visits the mound but Lowe stays in at 97 pitches.

Orel said...

First pitch is a fly ball. Not great for a sinkerball pitcher, but it was an out anyway.

karina said...

Coming up: Martin, Ethier, Manny. Sweet.

Orel said...

Ethier is 5-for-5. Gets a standing O while on base, quite unusual for Dodger Stadium.

karina said...

Ethier also starts on my fantasy team. I heart him so much.

Orel said...

Repko doubles! Welcome back, Jason!

karina said...

Ethier single, Repko doubles.

karina said...

Orel, i made a standing ovation, too. He deserves it.

Orel said...

Great fantasy night for you, Karina!

karina said...

Loyalty pays, Orel. I guess.

karina said...

Romero is from Maracaibo, too. Please, strike him out.

karina said...

Orel, tomorrow is my 10th anniversary school reunion. Changed my mind, i don't want to go. Now, my friends want to go. I'd rather watch Bills against Webb.

Orel said...

.5! .5! .5!

karina said...

Nueve Arepas for Arizona!

Great performances by Ethier and Lowe!. Sweeeet.

Night, Orel!

Orel said...

We'll be here for you if you decide to stay home, Karina.

karina said...

It turns out the reunion is tonight. I was blackmailed to go...
