Post-Game 9 Thread: Boom, Harang

PADRES 7, DODGERS 2

The good news is that John Ely pitched five solid innings. The bad news is that in the sixth, he gave up a two-run homer to Nick Hundley, putting the Dodgers in an insurmountable 4-1 hole. Kenley Jansen and Lance Cormier came in with gas cans, and the Dodgers settle for two of three.

Aaron Harang was effective enough, allowing only three hits and two runs over six innings. The Dodger bats cooperated completely; only Matt Kemp (2-for-4, SB) and Tony Gwynn, Jr. (1-for-3, SB) really showed up.

James Loney's game-ending GIDP was a new low in suckitude. I'm a Loney supporter, but it's getting increasingly difficult to support him this season. He had better turn it around soon.

karina said...

He will, Sax. Even Pujols is having a rocking start.

NicJ said...

Loney has been hitting .205 since last years ASB.

Mr. Customer said...

Ouch.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's...not very good.

YIKES - Not the kind of game we wanted. Glad I missed this one.

glad I missed this one

We got the Gnats, then the Cards then the Braves, with 4-game home serieses against the last two. I am hoping for 7-4 in those games, but we gotta keep pitching

^Chillin' at the beaches down at Club Med

Sorry I was late with that one, Mr. C.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to take off work May 3 to be able to fully take in a Beasties release date. (cries tears of joy)

Steve Sax said...

JD Drew just Kd to squelch the Red Sox' rally. 1-0 Boston after three innings. Russell Martin is 0-for-0 with a HBP, which hopefully got him in the nuts.

Josh S. said...

The face would also be acceptable.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck both those guys.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

In preparation for the upcoming series, I decided to change my avatar and Google-imaged "stupid giants."

This is what came up.

Steve Sax said...

who the hell is that?

Fernie V said...

That's ray Barron I miss that dude

Fernie V said...

I'll take two out of three all season long.
I think we need to pull out the distractions for Monday, two big ass distractions.

Paul said...

Didn't we all know Uribe sucked?

That Giants run was based on great pitching and dumb ass luck on offense. Now we are stuck with one of the dumb asses.

I just hope he hits some bombs in-between the double plays and Ks.

NicJ said...

It seemed like Uribe would crush every single shitty breaking ball the dodgers threw him last year.

This year he just fouls them off.

NicJ said...

I guess my avatar is in need of a change too.


Furley mojo.

MR.F said...

I also need to change my avatar....

hahahhaha

NicJ said...

Just got my nosebleed kings playoff tickets to game 3!!

Josh S. said...

I'm jumping on the lucky Oates bandwagon.

Mine's the other one.

Spank said...

I shop at SoSG just for the avatars.

NicJ said...

Room for one more lucky oats avatar?

Steve Sax said...

Oh my god, NicJ, I'm quaking in my boots.

Fernie V said...

One for the lefties

Spank said...

Let's even the Oates.

Steve Sax said...

Any of you iPhone guys having problems loading our site? It seems to crash my safari near the end of the pageload...

Fernie V said...

Yup, I thought it was AT&T

Josh S. said...

@Sax: Yup. Ever since I updated to iOS 4.3. (4.3.1 didn't fix the problem.)

It happens with other sites too, but it's most common here.

Fernie V said...

@sax josh is right I starting having trouble when I updated my phone.

Fernie V said...

Sergeant Hulka, the IPhone is a phone you can take with u anywhere and surf the Internet.
