Post-Game 108 Thread: Kershaw Not Unstoppable But Goes The Distance Anyway

DODGERS 6, PADRES 2

Clayton Kershaw won his 13th not by overpowering the NL West-worst Padres; he only had four Ks against two walks and six hits, including a HR to Orlando Hudson. But what he lacked in pure force, Kershaw was able to compensate with efficiency and endurance (only 108 pitches over nine full innings of work). Add a 2-for-4 night from Matt Kemp (double and a triple), a surprising RBI from James Loney (sacrifice fly), and a 2-for-3 night from Casey Blake, and the Dodgers pick up the series-opening victory at Petco Park.

Hey, the Giants just coughed up a 1-0 lead at home to lose 5-2, after Matt Cain fell apart in the sixth inning. Imagine that, Arizona being only one game back of the NL West lead. Wow.

That instrument at 2:16 is a compact green HM-900 Soprano Hohner Melodica. DAMMIT, I TOLD YOU TO READ THE INFO FIRST!

I have to say, the 2009 Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais-Villages is a very drinkable weekday wine. I'm quite pleased, given it was only $8 for the bottle.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh god, now Dee won't stop tweeting.

Steve Sax said...

Rafael Furcal would have known when to stop tweeting.

NicJ said...

Furcal would have thrown out his back hitting send.

Steve Sax said...

Not true. Furcal could type tweets on his iPad by throwing balls at the touch keyboard from 100 ft away

Dusty Baker said...

But his browser would vomit when he tried to hit the Sons site until he learned of Nic's mobile Blogger tip.

Fernie V said...

I think his balls would be to fat to hit the correct keys or it could be his broken up english. I only bein in country 15 years.

Fernie V said...
