Post-Game 134 Thread: Eight Is Enough

DODGERS 8, PADRES 5

The Dodgers had an eight-run second inning today, punctuated by Andre Ethier's grand slam. That should be enough to tame the woeful Padres, right? Actually, it ended up being close at the end, causing the Dodgers to employ Javy Guerra to get the save and secure the victory. Hiroki Kuroda (6.0 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 3 Ks and 2 HR) might not have known what to do with all that early run support, but Kenley Jansen was magnificent and the Padres eventually went down, and the Dodgers win their seventh in their last eight games. And eight, is enough, to fill our hearts with love.

The Dodgers waited nearly five months to start playing well.

Fantastic.

Can't wait to go to the Yard tomorrow, enjoy a nice day game, and take advantage of the last half-priced be--....oh.

Well, I was feeling good about the win (coupled with the giants loss), until I saw this headline on Dodger News, "Lilly to lead Dodgers in bid for sweep." Then again, maybe the madres really are just that inept.
