Post-Game 3 Thread: Nail Biter

DODGERS 6, PADRES 5 (11)

After jumping out to a 5-run lead and seemingly dominating the game, an unfortunate series of events, largely involving inextricable walks, allowed the Pod Rays back into the game. A real nail biter ensued, but Dee Gordon took over the show, going 2-3 with two walks and 3 stolen bases. We may be onto something with this kid! Tomorrow the curtain closes on this series as the Dodgers go for the sweep to open the season and head home for the opener.

Let's also use this thread to join our LA King-supporting brethren. Game is now in the 3rd period, tied at 2.

Hell yeah! First series, first victory!

Hideo Nomo said...

Prime Ticket just showed a commercial for today's national games. Oops.

Paul said...

I can't remember a 3-0 start. Was it in 09? Even farther on the road 3-0 start.

Orel said...

So I see our 5-0 lead didn't hold up. And we won on a Dee Gordon RBI???

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

I'm going to knock you on the backside of the head when I see you. Your answer lies in the Game Thread post from tonight!

Dusty Baker said...

2-2 at end of regulation.

Steve Sax said...

We have a 60.2% chance of making the playoffs, according to ESPN.

Orel said...

Can't believe I'm asking this, but what channel is the Kings game on?

Dusty Baker said...

Sharks win in OT. Sorry Nic, Neeebs, Marla, et al.

Paul said...

The mobile site threw me off. I also was distracted by the snake. I hate snakes.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Motherfucker, not the Sharks again.

Fucking Clowe. I hate him!

Dusty Baker said...

It just ended, Orel. I found it on KCOP. Sharks came back from 2-0 to win it.

Steve Sax said...

OT...dammit, Kings lose

Steve Sax said...

I'm going to bed

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Looking like a lock for the 3 seed two days ago. Talk about a swing.


Blues in 6

Dusty Baker said...

Get out the broom, lads and lasses. Game time 1:05 tomorrow.

NicJ said...

Hopefully this is the end of Lombardi.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Playing the Canucks in the first round. Kings were 2-2 against Couver during the regular season, going 1-1 both at home and on the road.

Dusty Baker said...

What chances do you guys give for Kings?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm thinking another 4-2 series loss.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice to see the Angels lose today. And the Yankees. And the Cubs. Go Nats!

Paul said...

Oh and the Giants Dusty. Never forget a Giants loss.

Hideo Nomo said...

I love how TJ Simers just told everyone, in print, that three of the greatest men in L.A. sports history consider(ed) him an asshole.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

I stand corrected.

FUCK the Gnats!

Spank said...

What the fuck happened? I was watching the game when the Padres came up to bat in the fifth inning and i just woke up on the floor.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine slipped you a roofie, sounds like Spank.

Alex said...

Stoked we got the W after checking in from the shitter earlier! Let's get after that SWEEP tomorrow! AND...

FUCK the Giants...

Dusty Baker said...

ALex you get the MVP from yesterday for checking in this space from the shitter at band camp or wherever you were.

Alex said...

With Carter in the lineup we can take the Canucks.
