Post-Game 65 Thread: Showing Up Too Late

ROCKIES 6, DODGERS 5

This game only appeared close because the Dodgers decided NOT to show up for the first eight innings, instead showing up late for the ninth. Through eight innings, the Dodgers had only three hits, all three of which came from leadoff batter Dee Gordon (two of the three hits) and recent call-up Trent Oeltjen. But in the ninth inning, Matt Kemp hit a one-out solo shot, Tony Gwynn doubled in James Loney, Aaron Miles hit a two-run single, and Rod Barajas singled Miles home, accounting for all of the Dodgers' scoring (five runs, total).

All that was not enough to overcome Chad Billingsley's sorry 4.2 IP, 13 H, 6 ER outing, that's for sure. Certainly not when you miss your wake up call and show up to the game late.

Quiet night, eh?

Dusty Baker said...

Too quiet.

Josh S. said...

A brief stop at a friend's house turned into dinner and a playdate for our kids, so I essentially missed the whole game. Caught the ninth on mobile Gameday.

Josh S. said...

Dodgers missed almost the whole game too.

Steve Sax said...

Exactly, Josh. They showed up about the same time you did. WHERE WERE YOU IN THE SEVENTH INNING????

Josh S. said...

I WAS AT THE PARK!

HE WAS CLIMBING THE SLIDE!

IT WAS ADORABLE!

Steve Sax said...

Okay, I'm cool with that.

Hi to Lucas. I'll throw in a video for him tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Catching the game on tape delay, Vinny!

Matt Kemp's HR was a BOMB!!!!!

Never seen a ball hit so far.

NicJ said...

its getting harder and harder to convince my lady that i have to watch dodger games rather then help with last minute wedding chores when they are so sucking so bad.

that kemp HR had to be 450+ easy.

@Nic

When the wedding chores are sucking so bad, or the Dodgers?

We seem to be collecting MSB (Mini Sirloin Brothas). I like it. #DeeGordon #TGwynn

NicJ said...

actually wedding chores might be a little more fun than the dodgers at this point in the season.

Dusty Baker said...

Matt Kemp hit baseball very very far.

Steve Sax said...

@NicJ 10:51p: agree with Dusty, the pronoun reference is unclear...

When's the big day? I haven't received my invitation yet but I'm hoping it's a +1.

NicJ said...

Sunday!! Sunday!! Sunday!!

I am marrying Grave Digger and the best man is Bigfoot.

Spank said...

@ NicJ

I can hook you up with a mariachi band,if need be.

NicJ said...

@Spank, already got one.

was a gift from my mom.

thanks though.

Steve Sax said...

NicJ: this Sunday?!?!

I take it that my invitation probably isn't lost in the mail, then?

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

PS NicJ: I know a good juggler / mime act if you need one.

(Unfortunately, he's a little involved in a bitter divorce and trying to resolve ownership of an MLB team right now.)

@Nic

What did Neeebs' mom get you?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I will crash the wedding, but only so I can hook up with Rachel McAdams.

Josh S. said...

Nic's wedding is being held somewhere Dusty and I will both be on Sunday, but we won't be aware if it.

Just kidding. Congrats!
