Post-Game 157 Thread: Ubal-D'oh!: Dodgers Deny Jimenez 20th Win

DODGERS 3, ROCKIES 1

Thank Josh S for the headline...but thank Ted Lilly for eight innings of one-run ball, earning the Dodgers the win and punching the Rockies' slim playoff hopes in the gut. Why we couldn't have done this to the Giants, i don't know, but I'll take it. Ubaldo Jimenez remains stuck on 19 wins thanks to two RBI from Casey Blake (a bases-loaded single off of Jimenez' body) and another RBI from A.J. Ellis (now batting .278).

The Padres just lost to the Cubs 1-0 with the bases loaded and two out in the ninth. San Diego falls a full game back of the Giants in the NL West (and a half-game behind the Braves for the NL Wild Card), with six to play. Crunch time in the NL West! Just not for the Dodgers.

Giants going to the postseason, massive earthquake on Thursday...

IT'S THE END OF DAYS

MR. F said...

At least that would mean I don't have to do anymore work.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's just a hoax. The earthquake, not the Giants in the postseason. Oh how I wish it were the other way around.

I have not yet resigned myself to the Giants getting in. Keep hope alive!

@Steve Sax never give up hope and/or hate towards the Giants

RT @STATS_MLB Adrian Beltre had his 3rd 4-hit game as a #RedSox player and 21st 4-hit game of his career. 18 of the 21 games have been on the road. #MLB

I'd be so happy if he were a Dodger again.I never stopped missing him, not even the great Beard moments.

MR. F said...

I agree with Sax. Giants suck.

Neeebs said...

Anybody But Giants!

Spanky said...

Steve Sax said...

@karina, I miss Beltre too. You and I are of similar minds if not similar thumbs.

Where is this Degrassi post that was promised last night?!

Orel you tease! You are no better than Anja!

Mr. Customer said...

OK, I relent. Atlanta and San Diego are on notice though. I'm very disappointed with the two of you.

Josh S. said...

Yeah, by about August, San Diego had convinced me that they truly earned a postseason spot. Then, they go and blow a 6.5 game lead in late August.

I hate just about everyone headed to the playoffs at this point. I guess I'll root for the Reds since my mom lives in Dayton.

Fred's Brim said...

I'll root for the Reds because FUCK THE REDS!

@Steve Sax :)

I like the idea of the REds going to the postseason and make it to the World Series.
