Post-Game 120 Thread: Two At-Bats, Five Outs

BREWERS 3, DODGERS 0

Nothing like James Loney to provide a bucket of ice cold water to all of us Dodger fans still giddy from our second season sweep this past weekend. Loney grounded into a triple play in the second inning and then a double play in the fifth inning, accounting for five quick outs in two at bats. Add in there GIDPs from Andre Ethier and Juan Rivera (the latter ending the game), and a decent seven-inning, two-hit, one-run effort by Ted Lilly was totally wasted.

Not that it mattered, after Scott Elbert and Mike MacDougal greeted their respective first batters with meatballs for home runs, each in the eighth inning (turning a 1-0 lead into a 3-0 lead for Milwaukee). I mean, if not for Brian Wilson's blown save and loss in Atlanta this evening, I might be pretty bummed out. Ha ha!

I blame Randy Wolf for not allowing me the opportunity to one day tell my grandchildren about the game Loney hit for the groundout cycle.

Man take off that Free James Loney on the banner Sax.

James Loney grounds into a non-tendered contract. Dodger fans score. 2 outs.

lol seriously remove him from the banner. As disgusted as i have been with this franchise this year i will still have to pretend to be a fan again in late September. I have tix for Phx, hoping it would be the Dodgers trying to clinch the division and it being my first visit to Chase Field, more like the Dbacks clinching the division..

Navarro's getting thrown out at home by like 27 car lengths was pretty pathetic, too. Lots of fun highlights tonight at Miller Park!

Announcer tried to blame Wallach. It is not his fault he wasnt paying attention. Base runners never get that far when we play good

Sax, remove some shit from the sidebar. Instead of hey guys I changed something, find it. Seriously I am posting on google and it sucks. If I edit a post it disappears. I have to type and hope I entered it correctly. Help a brother out.

"It marked the first time the Dodgers hit into a triple play since May 4, 2009, against the D-backs. Wilson -- then Arizona's shortstop -- also started that one, and Kemp was the final out."

Dat's some freaky shit right dere.

Uncles Charley and Rick had a good laugh at Loney's expense tonight.

Meanwhile Dodger fans continue to weep.

*cries*

Fernie V, why the anger? I am not James Loney!

The sidebar is our record of mentions since we started this blog. Not sure what your google posting issue is, can you explain? We would love to help, but you gotta let us have some sidebar info. Look at VSIMH for petes sake...

I think being an assassin for all of one minute has gotten FV on a rampage.

Fernie V said...

@ spank, I believe I was walking around with my Wang out for whole three minutes.
