In Case You're Sitting Around At Lunch Today...

In Arizona: The Cardinals' Kyle Lohse (13-6, 3.89) vs. the Snakes' Doug Davis (6-8, 4.59), 12.40p.

St. Louis, 5.5 games back of Milwaukee for the NL Wild Card, looks to take the rubber match against the Snakes, who are 1.5 games ahead of the Dodgers in the NL West race. Comment away!

Glaus with a homer to left.

Cards up 2-0 in the 3rd.

Steve Sax said...

Former Dodger Cesar Izturis was on base for one of those runs! 2-0 going to the bottom of the fourth.

Steve Sax said...

Hey Quad7, how were your seats last night?

QuadSevens said...

The seats were awesome! I was told that someone spotted me on tv. I'm going to have to check my TIVO to see for myself.

The pregame food was excellent. Had a salad, some pasta, an italian sausage and of course some Gorden Biersh Marzen. During the game I grabbed some peanuts, cookies, frozen yogurt, another Marzen and spotted some celebs. Ginger Spice threw out the first pitch and was down in the seats. Lasorda and the McCourts were there as well. I also saw Dave Winfield in the Dugout Club. He is a big guy! It was a lot of fun, hopefully I'll get to do it again sometime.

QuadSevens said...

And I got my Manny shirt last night too!

Steve Sax said...

Lohse gets out of a bases-loaded jam without a scratch! End of the fourth, 2-0 Cards.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, it's 100 degrees F there. Yikes.

Steve Sax said...

Great that you go the Manny shirt. We saw Winfield on television too; were you sitting by him?

karina said...

Drew doubled, but Eckstein ground. Way to go, Lohse!

karina said...

Quad, that Manny shirt could be your next avatar.

Steve Sax said...

3-0 St Louis, when Lohse DOUBLES the runner in from second!

Steve Sax said...

3-0, middle of the sixth

Steve Sax said...

Karina! How are you! Sorry we didn't get to chat last night while I spent most of the game getting to the other side

Steve Sax said...

3-4-5 hitters to lead off the 6th for AZ

Steve Sax said...

Men on first and second with two outs and Lohse straining with 103 pitches in the tank. Come on, Kyle...

Steve Sax said...

In play, out(s)

Lohse gets out of yet another jam, getting Chris Young (who has GIDP as well as had a force out end a bases-loaded threat) to force Adam Dunn at third.

3-0 Cards, going to the seventh.

karina said...

Do not worry, Steve. It's all right!, how are you?

karina said...

So far, Andre Ethier and Kyle Lohse are my heroes today.

QuadSevens said...

I didn't see where Winnfield was sitting. I happened to see him when I was coming back from the restrooms. Ginger Spice I saw before the game when I was eating.

I'll definitely be taking a new picture of me in the Manny shirt soon to use as an avatar.

Steve Sax said...

McClellan is getting marshed out there, giving up a leadoff double and a walk. Right now, one away with two RISP for the ever-scrappy David Eckstein.

Steve Sax said...

Quad, tell me that Ginger Spice still looks adorable.

I think my ranking is Ginger, Sporty, Baby, Posh, Scary.

Steve Sax said...

Eckstein walks, rancho ardiendo, and Conor Jackson gets Arizona on the board with a one-RBI force out. 3-1 Cards, men at the corners.

Karina, what spanish phrase should we say for "men at the corners"?

Steve Sax said...

Ron Villone replaces McClellan with two away and two on in the seventh.

Orel said...

Cards 3, D'backs 2, bot 7...

Steve Sax said...

Villone promptly gives up a wild pitch to score a run, and then walks Adam Dunn. 3-2 Cards, two men on.

New pitcher, Jason Motte, looks like he hasn't pitched all year in the majors...

Steve Sax said...

Reynolds got wrapped, end of the seventh 3-2 Cards.

karina said...

"Hombres en las esquinas".

One of my nicknames when i was at school was Sporty Spice, but Ginger's hair rocks my world.

QuadSevens said...

Ginger Spice still looks good. She wasn't showing off much last night though. Fairly covered up in a Dodgers jersey.

karina said...

Did she throw the first pitch?

Steve Sax said...

Schumaker Skipped to second base on a wild pitch, but little Cesar (1-for-5, 4 LOB) ended the frame.

3-2 going to bottom eight.

Steve Sax said...

Motte gives up a leadoff hit.

I have a bad feeling the Cardinals won't be able to stagger across the finish line here.

Steve Sax said...

Karina, they called you "Sporty Spice"?

I gotta get with your friends.

Neeebs said...

"Quando amor no es locura, no es amor."

Sorta sums up my spanish opinion of Los Dodgers.

And if you don't understand, go see Woody Allen's new flick with Penelope.

Majita rica!

karina said...

They called me that way because i was always wearing sneakers. Very cool black sneakers. I went to a catholic school and girls weren't supposed to wear sneakers, so i spent lots of time in detention due to my refusal to wear another kind of shoes (those sneakers are around somewhere, if my mom hasn't thrown them away). If i wasn't wearing those sneakers, i had my chucks on.

I also was a decent soccer player. There was no girls' soccer team so i used to play with the boys. Plus my baseball, italian soccer, F1 and basketball love at the time, i'm white and have dark hair, there you go "sporty spice".

karina said...

"Mamita rica".

"Cuando no hay amor no hay locura". Sigh.

I want to see that film, RIGHT NOW, are you talking about Vicky Barcelona?

Steve Sax said...

Motte gets Augie Ojeda on a 10-pitch AB, and then gets out of the eighth with the score still 3-2 Cardinals!

karina said...

Miguel Montero flied out at the first pitch. Nice.

karina said...

Edit: cuando amor no es locura, no es amor.

That line sounds like the soundtrack Almodovar uses on his movies.

QuadSevens said...

Yeah Karina. She did throw out the first pitch last night.

Orel said...

Karina, you're a rebel!

Neeebs said...

Si, senorita.

Vicky Christina Barcelona.

Go see it.

And apologies for my poor spelling in Spanish.

I'm much better in Spanglish, por que mi esposa esta una Chilena.

Orel said...

The Cards' bullpen is as bad as the D'backs'. Drew on third, one out.

Orel said...

ah shit

karina said...

play (in runs). Arizona tied the game.

Orel said...

Conor Jackson ties it, 3-3.

Orel said...

AZ walks off. DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

SHIT! Dunn gets the game winning hit. AZ wins in the bottom of the ninth.

Orel said...

Chris Perez threw Adam Dunn three straight fastballs. What was he thinking?

karina said...

Neeebs, one of my closest friends is chilean.

Orel, i'm only rebellious when i have a cause. For example, the uniform was dreadful and they wanted us to wear ugly moccasins... not even a chance i'd wear that!.

karina said...

Well, Dodgers have to win tonight. They have to rely on themselves.

Orel said...

Ugly moccasins are definitely worth fighting against.
