Game 59 Thread: June 7 vs. Phillies, 5p

MANNYWATCH: 21 GAMES
DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 18-11

Randy Wolf (3-1, 3.21) vs. Antonio "Inglourious" Bastardo (1-0, 1.50).

COMMENTS: SoSG reader Fernando strikes again! "I made this to commemorate 'Dre's back-to-back walk-offs, and to simultaneously give Andre more reasons to continue to turn down fan photos," Fernando writes. Dodger fans will be more than willing to put up with Andre's photophobia as long as he keeps producing.

And while Mr. Walkoff may no longer be welcome in the City of Brotherly Love, he's not the only hero of the weekend. Let's not forget the excellent pitching staff as well as the clutch defense (particularly that of James Loney, Orlando Hudson and Matt Kemp).

Today's game is the last regular-season meeting between the Dodgers and Phillies; with four wins and two losses, the Dodgers have assured themselves of a winning record against the defending World Series champs. Which is a good start.

More good news: The team has three off-days in the next two weeks. (Sharpen your pencils, PCSsters!) But with rest comes change: Look for a pitcher to be replaced by a position player on the roster.


Laker fans! Today is the only day a Laker Finals game and the Dodger game are starting at the same time. (You can thank ESPN.) But is it a blessing or a curse? Whichever you decide, be sure to keep us updated in this thread. Okay, Jayson?


UPDATE: Eric Stephen from True Blue LA is in the press box tonight.

Nic j said...

karina said...

That call at first was safe...

Orel said...

Both Dodgers and Lakers getting bad calls.

karina said...

Espn Deportes announcer: at bat "Fuki"

Nic j said...

Nic j said...

karina said...

2 run difference again, solo HR by Ruiz.

Nic j said...

Nic j said...

2 run HR

Nic j said...

the refs are killing the lakers tonight.

karina said...

I hate you, Victorino.

Delino DeShields said...

Nicholson's getting Departed level angry.

Delino DeShields said...

C'mon Dodgers - keep it a save situation!

Nic j said...

well, wolf fell apart rather quickly, that late inning comeback is getting less likely.

Nic j said...

kobe is getting more aggressive. Pietrus fouled out.

karina said...

Dodgers can't lose tonight. Dusto is at the game for the first time he remembers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe Dusto will see the greatest comeback of the season.

Nic j said...

poor dusto, he has to deal with the smug phils fans like i did on thurs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Well, Wolf is the king of ND's. That provides a glimmer of hope.

Orel said...

Still three innings for the Dodgers to come back. But I'm watching the Lakers right now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You and all of Los Angeles, Orel.

Nic j said...

damn, kobe went down hard.

Nic j said...

fuck you JJ

Nic j said...

that was a two, but damn.

Delino DeShields said...

I hate Turkuglu.

Orel said...

Hedo Hate You

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn that head of turkey-glue.

karina said...

Beast double!

Orel said...

WOWWWWW

Nic j said...

lakers get last shot!!

Nic j said...

lakers win or OT

Orel said...

Two on, two out. Guess who's up?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was nerve-wracking.

Nic j said...

come on ethier, park is touchable

Orel said...

Such quick hands from Gasol.

Nic j said...

damn, OT

karina said...

DeCongrats Delino, you reached #227 last night!

Orel said...

How did Kobe not get the shot off?

Nic j said...

there were four guys on kobe

Nic j said...

turkey blocked from behind

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That sucked.

Orel said...

You're right, Nic.

Orel said...

And the Dodgers don't score in the seventh.

Nic j said...

i guess lebron only gets those foul calls in the closing seconds.

fanerman said...

My heart can't take this.

Nic j said...

if orlando makes a bucket here ill kill myself

Nic j said...

i think they are looking for the oop to howard

Orel said...

Another TO. This is when basketball gets really exciting.

Orel said...

Travis Schlichting sighting!

fanerman said...

That was close..

Nic j said...

wait what happened i missed it?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was brutal.

Orel said...

Missed it by that much!

Nic j said...

alright lakers gotta take this in OT

karina said...

Howard just said welcome to the majors.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The announcers are really making sound like they want Orlando to win.

Orel said...

And a Dodger comeback becomes more unlikely. 7-2 Phillies.

Nic j said...

im missing stuff on both ends.

Nic j said...

the dodger game is officially over.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

An ERA of 27 for Schlichting.

Orel said...

Furcal almost double-clutched into another error.

Nic j said...

at least the lakers are containing howard.

Nic j said...

now thats a home foul call!

Orel said...

Even with OT, the Lakers game could still end with no team scoring 100 points.

Nic j said...

knock down those FT's pau.

Orel said...

and one

Nic j said...

fuck, howard and 1

Orel said...

Lakers down one with 3:20 left.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I just realized how big that missed goaltending call is.

Orel said...

Ariza missed the three.

Orel said...

That wasn't the only iffy call.

Orel said...

BEAUTIFUL BY KOBE

Orel said...

Fisher steal and draws the foul!

Nic j said...

smart play by fish.

Orel said...

A few blocks away, Chan Ho Park continues to roll.

Nic j said...

whew, in and out.

Nic j said...

we need a bucket here.

fanerman said...

Yes!

Nic j said...

ANNNNNNDDDDDDD OOOONNNNNEEEEEE PPPPPAAAAAAUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!

Orel said...

In-and-out heartbreak for Turkoglu!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

KA-PAU!

Orel said...

Up six with 1:14 left!

Nic j said...

now we just have to play some D for a minute.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I love seeing the sky-hook, and Chick Hearn's call only sweetens it.

Nic j said...

thanks ESPN i really want to see philly celebrating the world series.

Orel said...

Well, we wanted Park. We got Park. And Park is shutting us down.

Nic j said...

why doesnt anyone use the skyhook now, its undefendable.

Orel said...

Did Redick go to Duke?

Nic j said...

is it park shutting us down? or the dodgers shutting themselves down?

Orel said...

Another bad call.

Nic j said...

finally a foul call

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That makes up for the blown call.

Nic j said...

alright, now guard the three.

Orel said...

We knocked Park out of the game!

Nic j said...

what did i just say.

Orel said...

Perfectly played by the Magic.

Orel said...

2? 3?

Nic j said...

looks like a two to me.

Nic j said...

we better get that call for the missed GT

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

4 is the magic number. As long as the Lakers maintain a lead of four, they're safe.

Nic j said...

damn its a three

Orel said...

Turkoglu is a handsome young man.

Nic j said...

damn, odom's gotta knock down some clutch shots

Orel said...

Schlichting K'd Victorino.

Orel said...

clutch

Nic j said...

somebody get that man a snickers!

Orel said...

Orel said...

LAKERS WIN

Nic j said...

game over!

fanerman said...

WE WANT TACOS!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LAKERS WIN!

Nic j said...

Pau, Mas Fuerte!!

Nic j said...

wow, the dodgers game really got out of hand.

Delino DeShields said...

Mota = A Fork.

As in... Put ______ in.

Orel said...

Mota retires Howard on one pitch!

Nic j said...

mota does his job, he has been pretty good lately

Orel said...

Furcal singles to start the ninth. Here comes the rally!

Delino DeShields said...

rally time. we just need one of those grand slam with the game genie cheats

Nic j said...

take a seat ausmus.

Orel said...

Loretta endures the double humiliation of striking out while throwing his bat.

Delino DeShields said...

now i'm a little worried

Orel said...

L.A. is 1 for 2 tonight.

Nic j said...

wolf doesnt get a ND tonight.

Orel said...
