Loving the win, it was worth sitting through the terrible diamondbacks broadcast.

I'm out of the LA area but I listened to Charley and Rick on my iPhone for the fateful eighth inning. To his credit, Charley got the home run call right this time. And Kemp, of course, got the two-run HR (knocking in Furcal, who had walked).

Charley was gushing over Kuo.

Rick, in the ninth, acknowledged that although he had questioned Broxton's velocity yesterday (and we had criticized Monday for this in the GT), he went back and looked at the numbers and noted that Brox was pitching with gas yesterday.

And of course, Brox registers a three-batter save. Suck it, Snakes!

Go enjoy the barbecues, Dodger fans!

5-1 roadtrip!

Way to go, Dodgers!

We just got back from Ribs USA. With half the family out of town, it was easier to let someone else do the BBQing. About to lapse into a food coma, but I wanted to check back in and celebrate the win!

Josh S. said...

Wow. Unbelevable Rockies fail. Bases loaded, no outs in the bottom of the 14th against Mota...and they fail to score. Strikout, shallow flyout, throw out at the plate.

Oh, and it's raining too.

Steve Sax said...

Rox win in the 15th, though, 4-3 on a Helton sac fly

I'm afraid that I leaft a fairly large carbon footprint today.

Oh man I think I ate half a tauntaun's rib cage.

Kyle Baker said...

I saw your pic of dem ribs, Paul. Looked nice! Hope you had some cornbread with that.

I think Jksh never woke from his food coma. I'm alive but fading. Fire is dying out and cholos north of town are almost thru shooting weapons.

Sweet mother of armpit. MDIL threw MLB Network on as we all wound the night down, and first thing I saw was a recap of the Pod Rays, who were wearing those hideous camo military-industrial-complex thingies.

Can't take it...headed to bed.

Someday, we too will face the Astros. Hopefully after what good players they still have are traded.
