Post-Game 150 Thread: Eating FJL Crow

DODGERS 7, PIRATES 2

Nursing a 4-2 lead and with two men on and two on, James Loney came in to pinch hit for Justin Sellers, while facing the newly-entered Chris Resop. "FJL PH? What are they thinking?" I wrote in the GT. BOOM!

Loney, 1-for-10 as a PH all year, jacks a three-run HR to right (it actually bounced off the top of the wall) for his 10th HR of the season, to put the game out of reach (Dodgers then led 7-2, the final score) and give Hiroki Kuroda (6.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 Ks) a victory. Sax eats crow. Nice shot, Loney, I admit. And thanks for keeping the Dodgers from being mathematically eliminated from all postseason action for at least one more day.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-4 with a RBI. Eugenio Velez did not play...and the Dodgers won. Hmmm.

@Mr LA SC: believe me, google "eating crow" and there are much worse options. The one with the guy having the crow in his mouth is just frickin' wrong.

@Mr F / fanerman: sorry, I'm already at home. Two young kids, so we had to leave early... Enjoy the fireworks
