Post-Game 92 Thread: Bison of a Gun

DODGERS 4, ASTROS 3

Cy Ortiz held the Dodgers in check, allowing two runs over six innings. How? The top of the Dodgers' lineup was flat as the nickel above, with the one- through four-hitters going 0-for-14. But Alberto Arias gifted the Dodgers with two extra outs in the seventh, which they cashed in for the tying run. Then Matt Kemp (3-for-4 in the seven-hole with all four runs scored) hit the go-ahead home run off LaTroy Hawkins and Jonathan Broxton pitched a classic 1-2-3 ninth to salvage the split.

Unfortunately, Orlando Hudson injured his problematic left wrist in the fifth. Vin passed along that the O-Dog is day-to-day (aren't we all?*). Jason Schmidt starts tomorrow. At the very least, it'll be an interesting Monday.

UPDATE: Wrist injury for LA's Hudson not serious (Dodgers.com)

UPDATE: Matt Kemp first to score all four of his team's runs in more than 40 years (Dodger Thoughts)

that was a massive shot by Kemp~

anyways, i hope the wrist wont keep him out for too long. but castro should fill in quite fine at second.

According to Doug Mientkiewicz"s Twitter:

"Dougiebaseball: About to wash the car. I have a power washer fetish!!! Oh yea plan is Az wed then tue-fri AAA then back in dodger blue barring a setback
17 minutes ago from Twittelator"

You hear that, i cant believe he is washing the car!
Oh and that baseball thing too.

Is he "washing his car" like Jeff Kent was?
