Post-Game 52 Thread: Core Meltdown Averted

DODGERS 8, CUBS 2

Eric Milton with the win: 5.1 IP, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K's. Welcome to the fifth rotation spot, Eric.


Russell Martin tags Reed Johnson trying to score in the second inning. The out was the back half of a double play started by Jamie Hoffmann after he made a diving catch of Bobby Scales' dying quail and threw a BB to the plate.


Matt Kemp celebrates his third-inning home run. Kemp hit the Dodgers' only two home runs of the road trip.

You never realize how much Joe Morgan sucks until he does color for your team. He doesn't think Manny should watch "For the Love of the Game" until his suspension is up.

He did say Manny could watch The Sandlot, though.

Sweet highlight of Jamie Hoffman with the diving flyout and strike to Martin at the plate.
