Post-Game 159 Thread: This Sweeping Thing Would Have Been Nicer About Three Months Ago

DODGERS 7, ROCKIES 6

In another game that wasn't very pretty but ended up okay for the good guys, the Dodgers clung to today's victory, cleanly sweeping the Rockies in our last road series of the year. But a closer look shows all the flaws we had to overcome: Matt Kemp misplayed a Troy Tulowitzki fly ball into a leadoff triple (Kemp atoned for this gaffe the following inning by "slipping Jhoulys Chacin the salami"*, hitting a GS to right for his 25th HR of the season); Carlos Monasterios couldn't make it through the fifth inning; Ramon Troncoso entered and promptly allowed inhereited runners to score (but "earned" the victory); George Sherrill sucked; Ronald Belisario made the ninth-inning nervous time but held the Rockies to one run, and not a tying two-run frame.

All of you mid-day drinkers: keep the irons hot, as we've got dueling games this evening with the Padres (vs. Cubs) and Giants (vs. Snakes). Get your snark on. I'll be back.

Note: (*) Not my words, but rather Mr. Customer's, from the GT. Yikes.

Wow there was a game?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Boo. I want primo draft pick status.

Nice deferral of responsibility, there, Saxy.

As long as it got a laugh or two, I make no apologies.

Kershaw scratched again for Friday. He's the Minotease.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now I can no longer eat salami. I hope you both are happy.

Kemp has a chance to exceed his single-season high in hone runs.

Who'da thunk it?

Wait. Really? Kemp?

I thought that guy sucked.

@Mr LASF if that statement is true, your heart will thank you for that.
