Post-Game 122 Thread: Batless


The Dodgers have scored only two runs in the first three games of this series, which unfortunately stretches to an uncommon fourth game tomorrow. And sure, you can cite the fact that Milwaukee is a crazy 47-15 and has won 18 of its last 21 as it tries to hold onto the NL Central lead (in front of sellout home crowds, no less). But when the Dodgers can't muster anything besides a Tony Gwynn HR (his first in over a year), it's a pretty pathetic offensive effort on their behalf as well.

With that Gwynn HR, he's only 36 SB and 39 HR short of the 40-40 club. Matt Kemp, who had neither a HR or SB tonight, must be jealous.

James Loney was 0-for-3 with 4 LOB, but Dioner Navarro surpassed that with 0-for-4 and 5 LOB (each had a K). Nathan Eovaldi had a decent 6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K performance, but with a Dodgers offense that hasn't arrived yet on this roadtrip--three games in, no less--it wasn't nearly enough.

This should count as a win simply because of Gwynn's homer.

No? Eh, worth a shot.

Mr LA SC: Your comment made me add another sentence to my PGT.

Maybe it was only worth a comment, rather than a post update. But what the fuck are admin privileges for, right?

Huge sucking sound coming from the general direction of Anaheim.

Trayvon Robinson made a nice catch in left field foul territory tonight.

But no, we're pretty set in left field, so no worries.

Even with the 2.5 GB position, Baseball Prospectus still has the Giants at a 65% chance of going to the playoffs (Arizona is at 39%).

Angels are at 4%.

Dodgers are at 0.0%.

Ok, I'm going to play some video games for a while.
