Game 79 Thread: July 1 vs. Rockies, 12n

MANNYWATCH: 1 GAME!
DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 28-21

Clayton Kershaw (5-5, 3.70) vs. Jason Hammel (5-3, 4.21).

COMMENTS: It's the final countdown! One last Mannyless game — and none too soon, given how ineffective the bats were last night. The Dodgers have won Kershaw's last three starts, while Hammel has won five of his last seven starts.

Speaking of fives and sevens, the Dodgers have lost five of their last seven games. A win today would make them the majors' first 50-win team; a loss would start talk about whether Manny can save them from the threat of their first three-game losing streak.

I'm in the Vin Scully Press Box today, so look for some quotage from Joe Torre and hopefully some players. I'll be looking for a chili cheese Dodger Dog (or two) in the fifth inning. Oh yeah.

yikes that was ugly

Josh S. said...

Ah, good. KABC is back. The only good thing about KOA was the radio ad for beef with a stoned-out-of-his-gourd Matthew McConaughey.

Fred's Brim said...

and so was that

one more?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nothing's coming up Milhouse.

Orel said...

Nice snag, Josh!

Troncoso in.

Josh S. said...

W00t!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nicely done, Loretta!

Orel said...

Fred's Brim said...

nice shades, Mark. are they from the Tila Tequila collection?

Orel said...

There Hawpe goes again.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry, I missed a couple minutes there and WHOOSH two innings went by...

...batting Hammel there with a chance to score the runner from second seems like a pretty weird call from Tracy. He must not have any confidence in his pen (which did pretty admirably two nights ago (until the 13th) and didn't even pitch last night).

I'm sure Tracy is asking himself questions right now. And answering those questions, with other questions.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

At least Loretta has a good glove.

Orel said...

Nice play by Loretta there. Throws to second on his knees.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Markus!

Alex Cora said...

SOMEONE PLEASE SCORE!!!!

Orel said...

Limbo Ausmus!

Alex Cora said...

Hey Josh if the audio keeps going out, then you can goto the website and listen to the WIN broadcast (i'm doing it right now - interesting...)

Orel said...

Ausmus!

Penos Cabell said...

Ausmus basehit.

Please cash this in.

Josh S. said...

Wacky idea: Get a lead for Broxton to protect.

Good start, Brad!

Orel said...

Furcal is PHing for Troncoso next.

Fred's Brim said...

ok now draw a walk!

fanerman said...

Aussum!

Alex Cora said...

WIN is about 30 seconds after gameday audio (which is probably about 1 min behind realtime).

Orel said...

That was almost disastrous.

Orel said...

Martin in for Ausmus.

Josh S. said...

Russell's days off are like my days off. There's always something that needs doin'.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FURCAL DID IT!

Orel said...

GOOD NEWS EVERYBODY!

Fred's Brim said...

thank you Raffy!

Josh S. said...

FINALLY!!!

Penos Cabell said...

1-0 Dodgers!


finally!

Alex Cora said...

SCORE SCORE SCORE!!! WOHOO!

Orel said...

Free caps in the press box!

Josh S. said...

LOL at Monday: "The Dodgers had not scored since June!"

(Not a criticism. I actually thought it was funny.)

Penos Cabell said...

Brox warming up

Orel said...

"(Not a criticism. I actually thought it was funny.)"

Once in a blue moon Monday comes up with a zinger.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's only one score, AC.

rbnlaw said...

Thank god our runners remembered to turn left at each base.

Use Forkal strictly as a pinch-hitter.

Orel said...

One run'll have to do.

Josh S. said...

"Free caps in the press box!"

Hey! You're not 14 and/or under!

Penos Cabell said...

AAAHHHH!!!

inning Ending DP.

Fred's Brim said...

they've all got the T Tequila glasses! you look dashing, Raffy!

rbnlaw said...

So much for any insurance.

Brox must be dominant.

Orel said...

Big cheer for Broxton. He's becoming Gagne-esque.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Brox should be able to mow through Tulo, Spill of Borghs, and Een.

rbnlaw said...

Orel's boyish good looks translate into a free cap.
Congrats!

Josh S. said...

Speaking of giveaways, I want the Tommy Lasorda replica Hall of Fame plaque on October 2.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tulo goes down!

Orel said...

Siddown, Tulo!

Penos Cabell said...

1 Down

Neeebs said...

I lost track of the game.

Is it the ninth inning already?

Orel said...

"Orel's boyish good looks translate into a free cap.
Congrats!"

Everybody got them. But thanks!

Orel said...

"Only" 97.

Penos Cabell said...

Brox bringing the heat.

Orel said...

Brox on fire!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Spillborghs goes down!

Penos Cabell said...

It was just a blur

Orel said...

Crowd on its feet.

rbnlaw said...

Brox bringing the nasty.

Penos Cabell said...

End this now!

Josh S. said...

I think the NLDS game 3 last year is where Brox turned the corner. He hasn't given me heartburn once this season.

rbnlaw said...

Starting with strikes; always a good thing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

THE DODGERS WIN IT!

Orel said...

Down to clubhouse!

Josh S. said...

Huzzah!!! If you have a mesh cap, throw it to the sky!

rbnlaw said...

One and done! We win a series again!
At least 6 up on the Gnats.
21 games above .500 and Manny's back on Friday.
I can breathe again.

fanerman said...

Victoire!

Neeebs said...

Winning the series again.

Neeebs said...

Now waiting for Manny time.

Neeebs said...

Nice to see two struggling Dodgers help with the win. Raffy with the hit, Martin with the run.

Alex Cora said...

MLASF: Sorry I got over excited - true one run, but felt like 3!

rbnlaw said...

Will the PGT have comparative facts of where the Dodgers were 50 games ago and where they are now. . .other than in first place, I mean.

Alex Cora said...

Awaiting some post game comments Orel!

Fred's Brim said...

yessir! series wins feel good when you havent had one in a while!
