Post-Game 73 Thread: Extra Painful

WHITE SOX 6, DODGERS 5 (13)

Chad Billingsley didn't have his best stuff today, yet still managed to hold the White Sox hitless over the first four innings. But it all fell apart in the sixth, when fan-favorite A.J. Pierzynski hit a full-count go-ahead three-run homer. Billingsley ended up with three strikeouts over 107 pitches, only escaping the loss when Casey Blake knocked in Orlando Hudson to tie the game in the seventh. (Joe Torre sent the runner on the play, neatly avoiding the inning-ending double play.)

The bats of both teams snoozed until the thirteenth, when Scott Podsednik singled in the winning run off Jeff Weaver, in his third inning of relief. So the Dodgers' series winning streaks against the AL and in June come to a crashing halt as they are again in a position to lose three straight for the first time this year.

Mariners come into town tomorrow. Dodger fans, you have our permission to take the rest of the day off to recuperate.

The upside, if you want to call it that, is that no one will hear about the loss on the news tonight.

Makes me think of that "I Love Lucy" episode where Ricky did a sketch as a matador.

"I AM FERNANDO THE MATADOR!"

Lakers sell the 29th pick in the draft to the knicks.

Clippers are on the clock.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Draft starts in 19 minutes. What other lies are you spreading, PC?

Orel said...

Very nice reference, Josh!

Rubio is falling. I don't think he will get passed the wolves though.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I just realized how much this week sucks: Ed, Farrah, and now Michael

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wow, the T-Wolves just picked Back2back point-guards. Must be a trade in the works.

Nic j said...

Should of traded up NY. Curry is on his way to oaktown.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You could hear the boos from the Knicks fans.

Nic j said...

I feel bad for whoever the knicks pick now. They will be booed.

The brandon Jennings experiment worked! Expect more players to circumvent college.

NYers chant overrated when indiana picks Hansbrough.

Stay classy NY,

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was pretty mean of the fans, I have to say.

So far, only one local boy has been drafted. This does not make me a happy LA Sports Fan.

Nic j said...

there he goes, Philly.

Nic j said...

the wolves are going for an all guard team this year i guess.

One more year at UCLA would not have killed Jrue. One year in Italy would have made him a top 5 pick.

Orel said...

Anyone following Manny in NM? The radio feeds have talk shows.

Nic j said...

Nic j said...

Elbert is starting the game.

Nic j said...

Nic j said...

Taj Gibson stayed in the draft? well he is a bull now, for the time being.

Nic j said...

And the lakers draft....
Someone for the knicks.

Penos Cabell said...

This Toney Douglas kid is a stud.
It's a good pick for the NYK.

Penos Cabell said...

I think Cleveland made a mistake trading for Shaq.

Addition by subtraction for Phoenix.
