Game 123 Thread: August 18 @ Brewers, 11a

Clayton Kershaw (14-5, 2.72) vs. Marco Estrada (3-7, 4.46).

Will the Brewers sweep the Dodgers four straight? Not if Cy Young candidate Kershaw can slice and dice his way through the Milwaukee lineup, and especially since the Dodgers are facing fill-in starter Estrada. The Dodgers travel to Colorado next, so what better way to board the plane than by scoring MORE THAN ONE RUN today? Look sharp, Dodger bats!

Damn, Kershaw is nasty today.

Spank Horst said...

I hate that guy! (Hairston)

Jason said...

Collins just called Fielder fat AND short.

Jason said...

Kershaw is... uh... good.

Jason said...

Back of Cards crushed that ball.

A solo shot, of course.

Jason said...

Damn brains hangover.

Spank Horst said...

Big Rod goes deep!

MR.F said...

11 AM game today. Huh.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Even through this hangover, I can't help but chuckle listening to Bob Uecker call a game.

Just... a bit outside.

Spank Horst said...

Boooooo!

Jason said...

Around the horn, bitches.

MR.F said...

And Kershaw gets out of it!

Jason said...

Is there a beer vendor in the Dodgers' broadcast booth?

Jason said...

Kemp is not having a good day at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

I'm back.

We're winning.

I give this one more inning before we start losing.

Jason said...

Ackbar comes through.

Jason said...

Nice bunt by Kershaw.

3-0 Good Guys

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

Orel! The Dodgers scored MORE THAN ONE RUN!!!

Jason said...

5-0 Blue (the good shade)

MR.F said...

Runs!!!!

Jason said...

You have to let Kershaw bat here, right? Even ignoring the chance at a complete game, who is on the bench that is a clearly better hitter? Loney? Velez? Navarro?

Jason said...

BOOOOOOOO!!!

MR.F said...

Kershaw would do better than Loney in this situation.

Fernie V said...

I wanted kershaw to pitch complete game, but he is over 100.

Steve Sax said...

wow, we're up 5-0

rbnlaw said...

Where the hell were these runs hiding?

Fernie V said...

Did Andre get hurt

Game blouses

rbnlaw said...

Nothing easy here.

MR.F said...

Triple?

Steve Sax said...

Hey, Javy: You don't get credit for a save if you CREATE the three-runs-or-less situation and finish the game

Jason said...

Making daytime zombie party!

rbnlaw said...

A win, is a win, is a win, is a win.

MR.F said...

Yay! We make party!
