Post-Game 20 Thread: Squeaker

"Never eat Cheetos before a big start."

"The left hook and the right cross, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier." —Vin Scully

DODGERS 3, NATIONALS 2

The Dodgers struck first tonight, with Matt Kemp singling and Andre Ethier homering in the first inning. Don Mattingly rode Clayton Kershaw, leaving him in for eight innings and 113 pitches. Kershaw's only blip was allowing a two-run homer to Adam LaRoche in the sixth; he left in the eighth with a 3-2 lead.

Two plays at the end of the game show how close it was: Tony Gwynn Jr. was thrown out at the plate to end the eighth, and Kenley Jansen, in to close for Javy Guerra, missed giving up a game-tying homer to Danny Espinosa by inches.

Back on track at 14-6. Strasburg and Harper tomorrow!

Dee didnt have a good game. I hope he can make measured improvements as the season progresses. He will be a key gor the nlue.

Dusty Baker said...

"key gor the nlue"

I must be hammered.

Spank Lapierre said...

Key Gor The Nlue was the Flaming Menudos first and last LP in the Polka Prog genre.

Paul said...

I still have my Nlue mask.

Dusty Baker said...

Trivia: it was also the first and only Flaming Menudos LP made into a video game of the same name. No truth whatsoever to the rumor that it was a total ripoff of Dragon's Lair.

^ ADDENDUM:

I have been advised by counsel that the above statement has no bearing in truth. Further, any future mention of said video game will breech the terms of the settlement agreement with Cinematronics.
