Game 56 Thread: June 5 vs. Braves, 7p

Chad Billingsley (6-2, 3.74) vs. Tommy Hanson (5-3, 3.78).

COMMENTS: Okay, who else thought the game was over after Atlanta tied it up last night? The Dodgers and the NL East are definitely not two flavors that go great together, so it was nice to see a late-innings victory, even if it did cost Clayton Kershaw a win. (Okay, that was your Post-Game Thread.)

Tonight the Dodgers field another favorable match-up (at least according to Mr. Accu Score, who puts the Dodgers at 57% favourites (Mr. Score is a Brit)), with a somewhat struggling Hanson (5.09 ERA in May) against Chadley, who last time out gave up three HRs and four runs in his first two innings but was mentally strong enough (ahem, critics) to follow that with six scoreless. That was the Balk-Off Game, which totally, certainly, positively probably won't happen again tonight.

Oh yeah, and SoSG Sax will be at tonight's game, Field level, third base side. Post a comment if you're nearby and want to grab a beer!

I like what the good people at Duckhorn do. Even their flagship merlot is passable for that vile varietal.

Sad PGT up.

@Karina

Because it (mostly) is. It's a mixing wine. Over-marketed here in the US to folks who enjoy flabby swill.

Too many other great varietals out there to waste time with this stuff.

That epic comeback was an epic fail.

I think this month might be a tough one. They are the opposite of the "That's life" song.
