Post-Game 143 Thread: Gigantes Killers

DODGERS 9, GIANTS 1

The Giants wore their "Gigantes" uniforms tonight, but no amount of Spanish Castle Magic could add fire to their bats. Vicente Padilla pitched six innings, allowing only an unearned run on his third-inning throwing error (nullifying his bases-loaded RBI single in the second). The Dodgers actually had a second consecutive strong offensive night, the main blow being Russell Martin's three-run bomb in the fourth. Matt Kemp and Rafael Furcal each had RBI-doubles and Manny Ramirez scored on that dependable triple-wild pitch combination. Hong-Chih Kuo, Ronald Belisario and James McDonald each pitched a scoreless inning in relief, and James Loney added a two-run jack — his 12th home run, all on the road — in the ninth as the cherry on top.

Dodgers now have outscored the Giants 19-4 in two games. Save some for tomorrow, boys!

Heath bell sucks, again.

Orel said...

Ever-reliable Padres allow the Rockies to tie it in the ninth.

Orel said...

Good thing we didn't trade for him.

koufax said...

damn padres

Dusty Baker said...

Do we think the Pods are doing this on purpose?

Orel said...

Extras in SD. There's still hope.

koufax said...

orel the optimist

rbnlaw said...

What the hell? PGT so soon?

I'm going to the fridge.

Dusty Baker said...

If my GameDay is correct, it's bottom of 9th. Is GD behind now?

Cause I can go sit outside in the car and listen to XM...lord knows I need to know this result as it happens, with not a second's lag time.

rbnlaw said...

MSB flies out. Realizes that he's not playing the Dodgers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think Heath Bell wakes up in the morning, takes a piss, and then thinks "How can I screw the Dodgers today?"

rbnlaw said...

A.Gon K's.
Pods suck even more.

@MLASF. I hope Bell pisses himself next year when he fails to secure a spot with a MLB team.

Dusty Baker said...

Then eats 4 tacos.

Dusty Baker said...

RB, you blocked my comment to MLASF, making it ust dangle out there like a Sanchez "breaking" ball tonight.

rbnlaw said...

Headlel flies out.
Pods go Electrolux.

Dusty Baker said...

Nooooow we go to extries. Correct? Can I get a Game Day check?

rbnlaw said...

@DB:
Sorry, I'm still in AC mode.

rbnlaw said...

Cripes, my typing is bad.
Headley flies out, and yes, they go to extras.

Dusty Baker said...

RB, exactly. Did Karina just kill someone accidentally?

rbnlaw said...

I need a Guinness shake.

Dusty Baker said...

Guinness is always a great way to start and finish a day.

rbnlaw said...

Smith strikes out.
2 down in the top of the 10th.

rbnlaw said...

@DB:
It' a new day on the East Coast. Time for Guinness!

rbnlaw said...

Helton walks; Tulo comes up.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweartogod, I moved JMart's bobblehead before the game (I was looking for an ALIAS season 4 DVD via Netflix) for the first time in months. And look what he did.

Now I have to tape off the placement of everyone so nothing changes for the stretch run.

Dusty Baker said...

Fun with time zones!

Dusty Baker said...

Sean Gallagher pitching? Break a watermelon open over Tulo's head.

rbnlaw said...

Tulo singles; 2 on, 2 out.

rbnlaw said...

Now I get to watch Utah and SJ State.
I love college football.
Still watching the Pods suck, though.

rbnlaw said...

Gallagher uses the Sledge-o-matic on Fowler, survives the inning.

Dusty Baker said...

You will be watching for a long, long time, RB.

Dusty Baker said...

Levine/Suchon talking about how many Doyers fans were in tha heezy. Damn I wish I could have been there to get rowdy with them.

Dusty Baker said...

One on, no outs for Pods.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho whatever it is!

koufax said...

3-1 count, bases loaded 1 out

koufax said...

game, walked in winning run

rbnlaw said...

Rancho Cucamonga!

Dusty Baker said...

Walk-off walk!

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho chicken soft taco!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yay!

rbnlaw said...

Pods don't suck as much as they did yesterday.
I'm still drunk.
Doyers increase lead and reduce Magic Number to 17.

Orel said...

WOW!

Neeebs said...

About time for a break

Neeebs said...

Now is it too much to ask for a sweep?

Neeebs said...

BTW, I'm still a little freaked out at the Richie Rich/Caspar comparison.

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs-

It's really hard to put that comparison out of one's mind. It's haunting.

Sax has been cracking up at the contrast between my avatar and what I say because it almost looks like a talk bubble when I comment. Richie Rich says "kill Kill KILL!!!"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now I go to sleep. I have a full day of football tomorrow, plus that little game against a nowhere-near-mint Milano boy toy.

Dusty Baker said...

It's been a great night of winning, watching, and commenting in this space. I'm off to DC on business for a coupla days so you'll be happy to know I will only be spottily attending the GTs the first part of the week.

I guess I need to sober up and pack at this point, no?

Stay Blue, my friends.

Orel said...

Safe trip, DB!

Josh S. said...

Hey, aren't the Dodgers supposed to lose the game if they scored double digit runs the night before? That's what they've taught me all year long, anyway. Nice to see them thinking outside the box in September.

Ubragg said...

OK, I've been to two games this season now -- last night and tonight. What say we take up a collection to send me to the rest of the games this season? Then it won't matter what the Rockies do.

In all seriousness, what a couple of great games to be at. There were a LOT of Dodgers fans at the game tonight, much more than Friday night for some reason.

Steve Sax said...

Ubragg, I'm so envious of you going to see the wins you saw. You were wearing Blue, I assume?

Dusty Baker said...

Last night on post-game, they kept going on and on about how many of our supporters were there. Strong, strong showing. Like it was in SD the weekend Manny came back. The phrase "[Fill in the blank with team name] Nation" is way over-used at this point, so I won't use it, but we have that feel.

Man, I hope my flight has WiFi capability so I can GameDay it. Regardless, I will flip the bird to the Redbirds on my way over them. Cause I'm classy like that.

Ubragg said...

Of course!

JBJ-1138 said...

sku-douche!

rbnlaw said...

No, or little DB today?
MLASF will have to step up in his place. I'll be in and out.

rbnlaw said...

Are we all chipping in so Ubragg can go to today's game?
