Game 26 Thread: May 3 vs. Padres, 1p

Chad Billingsley (4-0, 2.14) vs. Chad Gaudin (0-0, 0.00).

COMMENTS:

  • A win today would give the Dodgers series sweeps of three of their four NL West opponents. And it's only May.
  • The Dodgers' 9-0 record at Dodger Stadium ties them with the 1946 Brooklyn Dodgers for the best home start in club history. (Never mind what happened to that 1946 squad.)
  • Coincidentally, the Dodgers' 17-8 overall record ties them with the Cardinals for the best record in the major leagues. But the Cardinals seem to have a slight edge in the overall numbers:

    HITTING
    R H HR RBI BB SO AVG OBP SLG GIDP
    Dodgers 134 242 22 129 121 164 .283 .374 .429 25
    Cardinals 140 235 29 138 99 150 .280 .359 .452 18

    PITCHING
    ERA CG SHO SV SVO R ER HR BB SO
    Dodgers 3.96 0 2 9 16 97 96 17 94 179
    Cardinals 3.57 1 1 9 14 104 89 17 82 162

    I just noticed the Dodgers have surrendered only one unearned run this season. Can that be? Wow.

  • Housekeeping notes: James McDonald has been moved back to the bullpen, where the team hopes he will find his post-season form.
  • Thursday's hero Jeff Weaver will start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, although a second start isn't guaranteed. "It's just for this time around," Joe Torre said.
  • Scheduled to have the start off today: Rafael Furcal, Russell Martin (last night: 3-for-4, 1 SB, 1 runner CS) and Casey Blake.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Fred, you aced me!

Steve Sax said...

Okay, I'll be back in a second. Hope the line at the restroom isn't too long.

Chappy said...

Murphy's Law either way, but I say stay with Bills.

Nic j said...

please keep both hands on the bat kemp

Nic j said...

kemp has looked rather terrible

Chappy said...

Kemp is a mess today.

rbnlaw said...

Like I said last night: Who's got the worse job; Black of Bocce?

Nic j said...

gaudin has 5 k's

matt kemp has 3

Nic j said...

bocce, the weather is nicer in san diego

Orel said...

Kemp has regressed a little today.

Chappy said...

Kemps goes 0-2 and then whiffs on the slider too often to count.

nice bloop.

rbnlaw said...

Kemp's a giver.

Ausmus has been clutch at every opportunity.

Nic j said...

lean like a cholo? come on castro.

rbnlaw said...

Good call Nic. Although, better bars in SF.

Chappy said...

waah my eye...

Nic j said...

true, im sure both of those jobs require ample amounts of drinking too.

rbnlaw said...

Juan Castro could be the new Vic Davalio.

Nic j said...

bills again?

Chappy said...

oh well...

rbnlaw said...

Truth, Nic.

Orel said...

So Torre doesn't pull Bills with a runner on third. Hmmm.

Nic j said...

YAY CHAD!!

Orel said...

Never mind. Torre is a genius.

rbnlaw said...

Bills!!

Chappy said...

Bills contributing to the cause, holy hell!

Fred's Brim said...

Nic j said...

rbnlaw said...

7-8-9 killing Gaugin (I liked the reference on the mainpage)

Orel said...

"So when you get consecutive hits, let's face it, from Brad Ausmus, Juan Castro and Chad Billingsley, you are living very, very well." —Vin

rbnlaw said...

Off to a barbeque. Switching to radio. . .pray for me.

Fred's Brim said...

Sorry Saxy - i swear I wasn't trying!

Steve Sax said...

Orel said...

Go to Tahiti, Gaudin!

Orel said...

Have fun, Rbn!

Orel said...

C'mon Juan, 3-run jack.

Nic j said...

Chappy said...

Orel said...

Chee-pee!

Nic j said...

Chappy said...

Torre couldn't have really thought it would go so well could he?

Nic j said...

O DOG

Orel said...

Love it. We're picking up where we left off in the first inning.

Chappy said...

It's a scoring avalanche!

Holy Crow!

Nic j said...

sf and col no score in the 9th

Nic j said...

col has bases loaded, two outs

Chappy said...

Bills is gonna be tired after this one, but does he look sharp!

Nic j said...

Nic j said...

Chappy said...

gramps leaves the yard. sucks

Nic j said...

Chappy said...

Fred's Brim said...

Bills just challenging them now. much easier to take at 7-1 vs 3-1

Fred's Brim said...

haha nice one Nic!

Orel said...

Bills finishes with 111 pitches.

Nic j said...

is eckstein singing?

Orel said...

This ten-year-old has been watching too much "American Idol."

Chappy said...

that's his twin sister

Fred's Brim said...

"in the clover" - i dig that

Nic j said...

at least it wasnt a K

Chappy said...

Kemp, Kemp, Kemp. At least it wasn't a K, but he's got to try to be patient.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Willy O - let's finish this cleanly

koufax said...

come on

Nic j said...

hmm...

koufax said...

"a glove full of empty"

Fred's Brim said...

so much for that! damn

Chappy said...

That was the schnitzel screw ball...

Nic j said...

jump a little higher next time.

Chappy said...

and the bullpen starts to open the door.

Nic j said...

shift didnt work that time.

Fred's Brim said...

damn - he can't get the lefties for some reason

Fred's Brim said...

JR Dodgers Broadcast? can i get that as an alternate choice on MLB.com?

Fred's Brim said...

Tron again? hmmmm

Chappy said...

I wonder if their voices crack FB.

Nic j said...

hey casey is in again?

Chappy said...

what's a "ribbler" Vin's getting tired?

Fred's Brim said...

hehe do you think they can pronounce Troncoso?

Chappy said...

Nice play by Castro! wow

Nic j said...

juan makes that look easy.

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, Juan!
nice pitching, Tron!

Orel said...

Sweet play by Castro.

Orel said...

Yeah, Vin stumbles now and again. I am more than willing to overlook it.

Fred's Brim said...

who will go in the 9th? Tron-Tron went almost 2 yesterday. JB in a non-save situation?

Chappy said...

me too Orel, it just makes me sad.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, 7-3. Good times!

Nic j said...

I should start preparing my will for weavers tuesday start.

Chappy said...

get it done!

Nic j said...

SF won in extra innings.

Chappy said...

I'm kinda wondering why Torre wouldn't try to work things so Weaver starts against the Nats.

Fred's Brim said...

jeez Joe - making Tron the next Mike Marshall?

Chappy said...

Torre's generation loves to wear out young arms.

Nic j said...

he doesnt have a whole lot of options who are reliable.
plus he's only contracted for one more season what does he care.

Nic j said...

JP doesnt get a hip bump?

Chappy said...

Great game, keeps the streak alive.

This does feel like a special season.

Off to my MLB The Show fantasies...

c-ya!

Fred's Brim said...

awesome! great series, guys!

Orel said...

Thanks for playing, everyone!

Orel said...

Post-Game Thread is up.

QuadSevens said...

Great day game today. And I got a souvenir! Andre Ethier threw a ball into the stands that ended up at my feet and I snagged it! 10-0!!!

Orel said...

Sweet! Who needs a picture?
