Post-Game 146 Thread: Diving Back Under Sea Level

DIAMONDBACKS 7, DODGERS 2

.500, we hardly knew ye. Two days after the good vibes of SoSG Fest 2011 helped get the Dodgers back to mediocre, the Dodgers have started another descent, dropping our second straight game with tonight's loss to Arizona. Oh sure, this helps the Snakes maintain their lead over the Giants (who also won tonight).

But Ted Lilly and Matt Guerrier's shellacking in the sixth inning (giving up five runs between them), plus two more runs scored off of Mike MacDougal in the eighth, doomed the Dodgers. Matt Kemp got his 33rd HR of the year in the first inning, and Jerry Sands added an RBI single in the seventh, but that was it for the Blue.

Oh, and Eugenio Velez is still 0-for-31.

Only the Raiders could draw a penalty when running a take-a-knee play.

Were they penalized for NOT fighting?

Time to bust out my favorite stat of the year!

If the Dodgers had won every game Kemp has homered in they'd be...

84-62!

@Josh S: Wait, so you're crediting them with wins even when Kemp doesn't homer?

New maths.

Josh S. said...

Huh?

Steve Sax said...

I was feeling generous, so I spotted them the games they actually did win.
