Post-Game 141 Thread: Strasburg, Schmasburg

DODGERS 7, NATIONALS 3

Some guy started the game for the Nationals, and did pretty well all things considered (5.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 4 Ks, 0 BB), in his first game back in over a year. Meanwhile, Ted Lilly had stoked the Nats to a 3-0 lead in his 5.0 IP (4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 9 Ks), putting the Dodgers in a bit of a hole.

But Andre Ethier was armed with a shovel this time, ready to dig the Dodgers out. Ethier had 4 RBI, two of them in a three-run sixth inning, and then two more in a two-run ninth inning. Rod Barajas added two RBI on his own on a seventh-inning double, and the lone other run (back in the third) was from our MVP machine, Matt Kemp (1-for-4 with 2 runs scored).

Javy Guerra had a very shaky ninth inning, bringing the tying run to the plate with only one out, but the Dodgers clung to yet another come-from-behind victory, to even the series at one a piece.

UPDATE 11:34p: Oh, and about tonight's game: Eric Stephen of TBLA and Mike Petriello of MSTI are really, really hungry. Somebody send those guys some bacon, already (screenshot from TBLA).

BAL@NYY just getting started now. Holy smokes, that's a laaaaate start.

Steve Sax said...

AZ down 8-3 to the Rox, who ended up getting SEVEN runs in the bottom of the eighth. Well done, 'Zona.

Dusty Baker said...

Late start indeed. Nevertheless, I will end up watching it.

Fernie V said...

71 badges fellows I will be happy with 100.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm on 157 badges. I keep getting a lot of doubles. They need to do better job of mixing them up every night.

Steve Sax said...

Jumped up to 365 badges, one for each day

4-3 Giants at the end of seven.

I'm going to go get in my workout, so I can DRINK after that

Fernie V said...

DB your right with the doubles. It is the same players going for the same shit.

Steve Sax said...

SD puts a late scare into it but the Giants come away with a 6-4 victory.

Dusty Baker said...

Baltimore and Yankmes tied at 3 bottom 7th.

@Sax
Like that attitude. Work out so you can drink more. Or do like I have done here and there: get on household elliptical with a water bottle full of gin/tonic.

Steve Sax said...

almost 2am ET, and O's @ Yank-Mes is still slogging along (and not a bad game, I might add)

5-3 Yanks after 7 innings

FINALLY a Dodger gets the Premier Play of the Night on Quick Pitch: Justin F'n Sellers.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: Haven't tried that combination yet on the elliptical.

Funny that we're both still watching this late-night east coast fest, btw. I'm just thinking about how the NYT won't have the story filed in time, just like the west coast scores--suck it, Yankees fans! Now you know how it feels!

Pass the beer nuts.

Steve Sax said...

interestingly, the only badge of the six O's-Yanks badges avail today which I don't already have is the Russell Martin one (unless he's alphabetized incorrectly)

Steve Sax said...

Or maybe that's not so interesting.

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

Corey Wade is the winning pitcher.

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

And the Yanks win it, 5-3.

Josh S. said...

Here are some words that rhyme with Corey: Gory, Story, Allegory, Montessori.

@Josh I hope you and I can get married someday
