Post-Game 77 Thread: Angels Beat Themselves, Dodgers

ANGELS 8, DODGERS 3

This one was weird at the beginning, than just frustrating (as usual) after that. The Angels ran into six outs on the basepaths (according to Vin, Dioner Navarro is the first catcher with two pickoffs and two caught stealings since the pickoff stat started being kept), while two Dodgers were thrown out at the plate.

Matt Kemp got the evening started off right with a home run with Andre Ethier on base. But Rubby De La Rosa couldn't make it stand up, allowing three homers and two more RBIs to dig a hole the Dodgers couldn't climb out of. Oh, and Marcus Thames came out of the game with a calf strain. Good, usual times!

UPDATE: Forgot to mention Angels catcher Jeff Mathis firing the ball to first base...as Tony Gwynn stole second. How did we lose this game?

On the bright side this time next week we might see Frank McCourt being escorted from dodger stadium.

Didn't get to watch any of the game. Got home and Mrs Dusty broke the news that we'd gotten spanked by the Lost Angels of Katella. This is some bullshit. I'm headed to the Yard tonight to make things right.
