Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney got really, really lucky.

karina said...

Remember he's a King. Did he stretch a single for a double?

Nic j said...

why is kemp looking at strikes go by? i bet he chases one now.

Orel said...

Loney touched Kendrick before he touched the bag.

Orel said...

Kemp advances Loney.

Fred's Brim said...

Beard!!

Orel said...

Beard ties it up!

Nic j said...

kiss the beard.

Penos Cabell said...

The beard comes through.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BEARD MODE!

Fred's Brim said...

calling it now - Loretta 2 run homer

Orel said...

Shields is really struggling this season.

Orel said...

I will not tell you to try again, FB!

karina said...

Time for the pinch-hitter, Loretta?

Fred's Brim said...

hehe almost

Nic j said...

about 100 feet short FB

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beast Mode is due for a hit.

Fred's Brim said...

i will shut up on the predictions now

Penos Cabell said...

This is the Juan Pierre we know and hate!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beast Mode reverts to Slappy McPopup. Broxton will come in now. Maybe he can get his fifth win of the season.

Orel said...

Who do the Angels bring out in the ninth?

karina said...

All right guys, new game the Dodgers are going to win.

Penos Cabell said...

Beast Mode is back to being Slappy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hope the Anaheim Angels bring in Fuentes on no rest.

Penos Cabell said...

Battle of the Bullpens

Orel said...

Doubtful on the road.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Again, I hope.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My hopes might just be correct. Fuentes is warming in the 'pen.

Nic j said...

got the leadoff, there goes the little ball.

HA

Nic j said...

BTW, Schmidt was hit on the side of the head tonight. They said it wasnt serious though.

Orel said...

Wow, Aybar gave it a ride.

Penos Cabell said...

2 down

Orel said...

Rarely do we kill the Angels. When we beat them, it's a squeaker.

karina said...

Orel, we all could take a win by a tiny margin.

Orel said...

Nasty pitch to get Rivera.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, JB

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Broxton's slider has improved so much.

Nic j said...

wow, brox looked great tonight. Lets not spoil it.

Nic j said...

i need a hero!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

6-0 shutout last year doesn't exactly scream "squeaker"

Nic j said...

shields is still out there? is this a concession?

Orel said...

All I remember was that 1-0 no-hit win.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Raffy walks.

Orel said...

Damn, Shields is a wreck. Normally I like the guy, but today? Good.

Nic j said...

damn

Nic j said...

be a hero jamie.

Orel said...

C'mon, new guy.

Penos Cabell said...

NICE!!

Orel said...

Awesome. Shields is gift-wrapping this for us.

Nic j said...

i guess scot is the hero tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

SHIELDS THROWS IT AWAY! O-DOG GOES TO THIRD!

Orel said...

That was a good throw.

Fred's Brim said...

wow what a time for a bad throw!
now get him home!

karina said...

Gameday is slow and mixed up. Did we win?

Nic j said...

five infielders again.

Orel said...

Fly ball wins it, rook!

Penos Cabell said...

Hit the ball far New guy.

Steve Sax said...

wow, good time to come back, with hudson just making it to third on the blown pickoff

Penos Cabell said...

I'm On the edge of my seat.

Nic j said...

that was low

Penos Cabell said...

That looked low.

Fred's Brim said...

damnation. that was low, blue

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That pitch was under the knees.

Penos Cabell said...

Basehit please Russell.

Nic j said...

wild pitch please

Orel said...

Report on Ethier: split right big toenail.

Penos Cabell said...

Loney's turn to be the hero

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Good eye from Russ. Now it's time for Big Game James.

Nic j said...

please james. dont ground out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How the hell did Ethier do that?

Nic j said...

big game james now? how many basketball names is he going to have.

Penos Cabell said...

Probably when he got hit by the pitch on the toe.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh, well I didn't start watching the game until recently, so I wouldn't have known.

karina said...

Is big game James another nick for LeBron James?

Penos Cabell said...

Lackey nailed him in the foot earlier.

Nic j said...

no, James Worthy. The laker great.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Big Game James was the monicker for hall-of-fame Laker James Worthy.

Steve Sax said...

wow, the chess game continues

karina said...

Injury delay?

Orel said...

Can Hudson steal home during the pitching change?

Nic j said...

orel, it couldnt hurt to try.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Unless the umps call him out. That would hurt.

Steve Sax said...

what you talking about, willits?

Nic j said...

no game james loney.

Orel said...

shit

Penos Cabell said...

That was pathetic

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh jeez. That hurts.

Nic j said...

can a loss go to a first basemen?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hoffman and Loney deserve the blame for this on. Loney swung at balls two and three, and Hoffman looked at two down-the-middle fastballs that were easy-pickings.

karina said...

Free baseball at Dodger Stadium.

King James was the maker of the tying run, so he can be forgiven of this one.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

what are the chances that Shields was actually hurt there? I am picturing Al Czervic during the big match at the end of Caddyshack

Nic j said...

to be fair it was hoffmans second game, james doesnt have that excuse.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wish I couldn't blame Hoffman since he's just a kid, but that 2-1 pitch was a hitter's dream.

Orel said...

Guess Broxton won't be available tomorrow.

Orel said...

Was that a slider that got Matthews?

Fred's Brim said...

it was nasty, whatever it was. he swung 6 inches over that pitch

Steve Sax said...

Ah Raffy, you need to grab that one.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Error or hit?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ok it's a hit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh crap, throw gets away.

Steve Sax said...

come on, it was clear kendrick was going to take second. martin, come on.

Penos Cabell said...

Pre-back surgery Furcal would have made that play.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Whew, Broxton got him.

Penos Cabell said...

Nasty.

Steve Sax said...

yay, willits!

Orel said...

How amazing is it that Broxton isn't relying on his fastball as his out pitch?

Fred's Brim said...

narsty! great work, JB!

Penos Cabell said...

Please end this now. I don't want to see Mota or Ohman.

Orel said...

That's the Kemp we know and love!

Steve Sax said...

let's go, nice job kemp with the leadoff single

Penos Cabell said...

BOOOOOOO!!!

Orel said...

Kemp is pushing it....

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blake saved Kemp's hide.

Penos Cabell said...

Kemp had a good jump

Orel said...

Blake fouled off a pitch-out. Vladimir-esque.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

BEARD MODE!

Orel said...

Beard singles!

Steve Sax said...

Casey with a sweeeet single

Penos Cabell said...

Lets end this now.

Juan Castro coming up to bat.

Orel said...

I think the Angels are going to try the hidden-ball trick. That is Scioscia's big strategy here.

Penos Cabell said...

Oh Christ!

We would like to go to bed already.

Orel said...

The Angels are having more meetings than...

Steve Sax said...

...the UN security council during an international event?

Wow, that is nerdy. sorry.

Steve Sax said...

...harper valley pta?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Angels network keeps going to a behind-the-plate view. It's really pissing me off.

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Steve Sax said...

wow, ball four. no outs.

Penos Cabell said...

On a silver platter

fanerman said...

It's time for BEAST MODE.

Steve Sax said...

okay, I'm not going to say anything bad...COME ON SLAPPY

Orel said...

Beast Mode walk-off grand slam. You heard it here first.

Orel said...

Angels re-enacting "A Chorus Line" on the infield.

karina said...

Loved the international politics reference, don't ask apologies for it.

go Beast! even a walk would do.

Steve Sax said...

2-0 to beast mode

Steve Sax said...

come on, walk off walk

Orel said...

I smell walk-off walk!

Penos Cabell said...

Walk off...walk?

Steve Sax said...

Dear Juan Pierre,

Do Not Swing Here with a 3-0 count.

Thank you.

Penos Cabell said...

I don't care how, just get the win

Steve Sax said...

Okay, it's 3-1.

but still, don't be predisposed to swing.

Steve Sax said...

let's go slappy (clap clap, clap clap clap)

Orel said...

Full count!

fanerman said...

BEASTLY WALK!!!!!

Penos Cabell said...

HALLELUJAH!

Steve Sax said...

SCORE BIG

Fred's Brim said...

yes Yes YES!
Thank you Juanny!

Steve Sax said...

third walk-off walk for the dodgers this year

Penos Cabell said...

It wasn't pretty, but we'll take it.

karina said...

Slappy McPopup could work now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

YAY BEAST MODE!

Fred's Brim said...

great win for JB - he earned it

karina said...

walk off walk! wow! big comeback win!

Penos Cabell said...

Cant wait for tomorrow.
