Post-Game 100 Thread: Ethier Ill, Chad Simply Sick

Guess what the score of tonight's game was. No really, just guess. Give up?

DODGERS 2, PADRES 0

Bills continued his hot streak, holding the Pads to three hits and no runs over six solid innings. The Dodger bats continued their cold streak, eking out two hits in the first six innings. But they managed to load the bases in the seventh, and Ethier, originally benched because of a tummy ache, came through with a two-RBI single.

Kuo came in for two innings and all he did was strike out five. Brox closed it out, striking out — guess who? — Matt Stairs to end it. Giants beat the Fish, and close to 2.5 behind the Padres. Dodgers five back. It's a start!

So lemme get this straight. If the Pods suck, they own us. If they're decent, they can't buy win. Go figure.

This is indeed a great start, Orel. The fact that we can shutout the winningest NL team (their cushy schedule notwithstanding) in their house could set the tone.

Now, about those dormant bats...

Hope some of our boys visiting SD do their job on some of the asshole GLB posters talkin' shit.

@RB

It's funny you said that because i was JUST about to make an Arsenal reference in my previous comment (Arsenal supporters at Highbury to the old Clock End supporters: "Clock end, do your job!" meaning kick some opposing supporters' heads in)

The Dodgers improved to 25-8 against the West, the best intra-division record in baseball.

WE KICK NL WEST ASS

On the subject of dormant bats:

The Dodgers scored the fewest runs out of all of tonight's winning teams.

GLB quote of the night.

" Scully needs to retire now, so Dick can go work for his favorite team"

You must pay the price if you want good, unbiased, announcing. Dodger fans know that.

Id much rather listen to Vin basically call out my team for shitty play than listen to some hack ballwash for nine innings.
