Post-Game 143 Thread: Kershaw Edges Lincecum, Yet Again

DODGERS 2, GIANTS 1

Just like in their other two meetings this year, Clayton Kershaw outdueled Tim Lincecum by a run, as the Dodgers scored the tying run in the eighth (Juan Rivera singling in Matt Kemp) and the winning run in the ninth (Jamey Carroll with a FC infield hit to second, scoring PR Eugenio "The Black Hole" Velez from third).

Lincecum went eight innings, giving up an earned run and fanning nine. But let's face it, Kershaw is better, tonight going an equal eight innings, giving up no ER in fanning his nine. Oh, and Kershaw got the win, while Lincecum got nothing. Give the Dodgers the victory, but you gotta give Kershaw the Cy.

Oh, and how's this for awesomeness: SoSG had THREE regulars, Mr F/Fanerman, Orlando Zepeda, and Pistol Pete Reiser, in the house tonight. Awesome representation, boys. Would have paid to see that one live, and hear the crowd go hush like an old lady rabbit in a rocking chair. Goodnight, Giants.

Interesting quote from Lincecum, re: Kershaw and the Dodgers:

"Obviously they're in a similar situation as us where it's not really for anything, but he still comes out and tries to do his job and go deep into games."

Dusty Baker said...

In a way I respect him for making that statement re a competitor, but then again one has to disrespect him for calling it quits on the season, publicly.

Josh S. said...

One also has to disrespect him for his fuckdonkulous hair.

Dusty Baker said...

Also, because he plays for the Gnats.

Dime-Bag Timmy hit the bong before talking to reporters...

Missed the game last night cuz of the kids softball practice, but got home in time for post game show. Guys were applying logical reasoning to the Cy young race saying that kershaw has beaten a two-time winner in all of their 2011 h2h meetings this season, and that should factor in the Cy consideration.

Thought that was a good angle

Timmeh is the lame kind of stoner who only buys a dime bag worth of sticky at a time.

Woke up my friend's sleeping baby last night when Velez scored the winning run last night...she rolled her eyes at me then shot me a dirty look, but it was totally worth it. Fuck the giants!

Dusty Baker said...

Your friend was giving you the stinkeye, or the the baby you woke up, EM?

Dylan Hernandez just reported that Andre Ethier likely headed for surgery. Thanks for that breaking news, chumlicker. That's what my LA Times sub pays for?
