Post-Game 59 Thread: Don't Fuck With The Dodgers In Extra Innings

Don't you guys read SoSG? Don't fuck with us in extras!"

DODGERS 11, REDS 8 (11)

The Dodgers don't look like they can field a team that can play six innings, let alone nine. But take the Dodgers to extra innings at your peril. LA is 5-0 in extra-inning games, following today's victory (the Cubs are the only other undefeated team in extras, with a 2-0 record). The Dodgers got to Carlos Fisher for four runs in the eleventh, abetted by a Ethier comebacker that Fisher launched into centerfield instead of an inning-ending double play. Javy Guerra gets his first major league victory, preserved--and I use that very loosely--by Ramon Troncoso for the final two outs.

Also remarkable was how the Dodgers got there: down 7-2 through seven, they erupted for five runs in the eighth, anchored by a Matt Kemp grand slam, his second HR of the game (Kemp had 6 RBI, a career high). This marked only the fourth time since moving to LA in 1958 that the Dodgers have come back from 5+ runs down after seven innings (according to Fox). As color commentator Eric Karros noted on the broadcast, that's remarkable given the team's offensive challenges this year. Given the last five games, however, feast or famine seems to be the team's M.O. of late.

SoSG Orel just came over for dinner, so I gotta hop.

As long as it's not on Belisario's Visa.

karina said...

well, maybe Belisario knows a guy or two who can help us to find a deal

Dusty Baker said...

First Sax and now Paul. Jesus, guys, you're killing me with this full-price beer stuff.

[takes early withdrawal from 401(k)]

Josh S. said...

Probably not the kind of "deal" we're looking for, k.

Paul said...

Okay. I'll let Sax buy full price beers if it helps!

Paul said...

Can we get Frank deported?

karina said...

Josh, I'm very he could get some guys to "talk" Matt into sign a deal with the Dodgers.

whatever it takes, you know?

karina said...

^sure

karina said...

@Dusty I don't drink beer but I'd buy beers if it means the Bison keeps wearing Dodger blue.

Jason said...

Sweet, sweet victory. I will now pass out from heat stroke.

When I wake up I'll go find Kemp's room in the hotel and treat him to a few adult beverages. I'll make sure he make curfew, of course.

Troncoso and McDougal will not be so lucky on the curfew issue.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

You can buy the beers, then the rest of us will gladly drink them for you.

Say, that reminds me, when the heck are you coming to visit and catch some games?

karina said...

@Dusty it was supposed to be this summer but work prevented me to do so, my summer will be dedicated to work on a film...I'm planning for this fall, but I don't think I can catch any games

*cries*

Dusty Baker said...

Well of course we'll be playing deep into October, Karina. I mean, come on! Where's the positivity? ;-)

Steve Sax said...

Just saw the highlight of Ethier play nailing the Red at home.

Love how Karros alluded--but did not mention outright--how Navarro was positioned better than Oyster Pubes.

rbnlaw said...

Brian Sabean is a douche.

Steve Sax said...

Johnny Bench agrees.

MR.F said...

If I were given the opportunity to have a sex change in order to have Matt Kemp's babies, I'd probably agree to it.
