Game 43 Thread: May 22 @ D'backs, 6:30p

Aaron Harang (3-2, 3.83) vs. Trevor Cahill (2-4, 4.01).

5: The number of consecutive games the Dodgers have won (for the third time this season, per @truebluela).

4: The number of consecutive games in which the Dodgers have scored exactly six runs (6-5, 6-0, 6-5 against the Cardinals — game set match! — and 6-1 against the Snakes last night).

3: The number of consecutive starts in which D'backs starter Cahill has not earned a win.

2: The number of series the Dodgers have to complete (including this one against Arizona) before Matt Kemp is scheduled to return (on May 29, which is Game 2 of a four-game series against the Brewers).

1: The number of games the Kings have to win to move on to the Stanley Cup Finals. This will serve as your Kings Playoff Game Thread as well. Go Kings!

GHAE KLEGH (and Savuka)

Hideo Nomo said...

0: Number of times Dodgers have lost with Kennedy batting fifth.

Orel said...

Blast off!

Jason said...

KEG LEG HAH!

I think Donnie is sending me anagrammed messages in his linups.

Neeebs * said...

Post needs to be corrected.

Number of Games in which the Kings need to win to be the STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS.

NicJ said...

Ugh, if the Kings lose today...

Fred's Brim said...

1-0 Dogs

Fred's Brim said...

those red Coyote jerseys are stupid, trying to look like the Red Wings

NicJ said...

Coyotes have probably outplayed the last two games and the start of this one. We have a lot of rope to work with but it's gm getting shorter.

Franklin Stubbs said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Fred's Brim said...

Short-handed goal!! 1-1

NicJ said...

Nevermind I don't know what I'm talking about.

GO KINGS!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

great deflection through the 5 hole

Fred's Brim said...

heh heh meatballs behind the yotes bench

NicJ said...

Have they ever put a face to the chick with the huge rack behind the Coyotes bench?

Fred's Brim said...

Tone gets us going

Fred's Brim said...

Gordon in the 8th spot, interesting

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, Tony thrown out at second

Fred's Brim said...

Herrera hustles again and nearly beats the throw. He's gonna get one soon

Fred's Brim said...

Wow, Bobby with an excuse me swing, nearly beats the throw from third

Fred's Brim said...

Kings powerplay for 3.8 and then 1:56.2 in the 2nd

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was less than graceful.

Fred's Brim said...

wow, great pickup and throw by Dee, bad turn by Herrera

Fred's Brim said...

fudge, catch that

Dusty Baker said...

Watching the Kings and taping the Dodgers, Vinny!

On a barstool and not on the sofa, FYI, Vinny!

Fred's Brim said...

is this going to be one of those games?

Fred's Brim said...

we need those wild-ass kids behind the plate again

Fred's Brim said...

sheesh, AK Ks and Dre is thrown out at second

Franklin Stubbs said...

What's up with the squandered baserunners?

Fred's Brim said...

James with a slow chopper to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

@Stubbs Donnie doesn't like them so he sends a lot of runners when he shouldn't

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, of course that would happen.

Fred's Brim said...

DEEE!

Fred's Brim said...

can Harang get down a bunt?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, hell. I don't like the smell of this one.

Fred's Brim said...

what a waste, Aaron

Fred's Brim said...

it's legal to practice bunting after spring training is over, right?

Fred's Brim said...

@Stubbs - funky, indeed

Hideo Nomo said...

Buck funting.

Franklin Stubbs said...

At least the Kings tied it up!

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell? I turn away for a second and it's 3-0!

Fred's Brim said...

I think Harang is distracted by the hockey game

Fred's Brim said...

K+CS to get out of the inning.
Lets get something on the board

Fred's Brim said...

what the hell? I turn away for a second and it's 3-2!

Fred's Brim said...

Kings that is

Fred's Brim said...

yuck, terrible AB from Herrera

Franklin Stubbs said...

Dayum, they're not giving up.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Harang needs to get his shit together if we're going to get back in this.

Fred's Brim said...

the more I watch Harang, the more I am amazed by his 9 consecutive strikeouts

Fred's Brim said...

how did he beat that?

Orel said...

Kings 3, Coyotes 3, 2nd intermission thingy

Fred's Brim said...

I think Konrad Schmidt was an extra on Hogan's Heroes

Fred's Brim said...

Hank White strikes out

Orel said...

Has Hank White ever faced Joe Table?

Fred's Brim said...

and Harang gets Cahill to strike out too

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel, 0-2 with a K

Orel said...

Very nice, FB.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Le sigh

Fred's Brim said...

I have seen enough of this one - this kid needs some ZzZzs

I hope we can keep it close and get into their bullpen. Gnite all

Orel said...

Bloomquist starts the bottom of the 5th with a double.

Orel said...

Night, FB!

Orel said...

Now's a good time for me to try to break my record of 13 straight comments.

Orel said...

Man, Harang fooling no one. 4-0 D'backs.

Franklin Stubbs said...

BLOCK

Orel said...

Mattingly in with the hook. Q*bert in.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Steve Sax said...

Well, so much for all those happy surprises.

Orel said...

Giants won. They're heating up a little.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Good thing we let Harang hit last inning, amirite?

Hideo Nomo said...

Gameday has crapped the bed. I'mma go look at fasciotomy pics.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, the Harangutan was going to show up eventually, I suppose.

Orel said...

Sac fly. 5-0 D'backs.

Orel said...

Something brewing? Dodgers with men on first and second, no out. Abreu up.

Orel said...

I like that hockey players can use their hands.

Orel said...

Abreu Ks.

Orel said...

WP advances the runners. So it's like Abreu hit a sac fly.

Orel said...

"Live by the sword, et cetera, et cetera." —Vin

Orel said...

Cahill's specialty pitch appears to be the knuckle-curve.

Orel said...

Ethier sac. 5-1 D'backs.

Orel said...

What's it like to be really pissed you only hit a sac fly then you have to high-five everyone in the dugout?

Orel said...

AK draws the BB. Men on first and third, two out, Loney up.

Franklin Stubbs said...

BLOCK

Orel said...

PHEW

re: Kings

shot goes off Quick's head

tied at 3, 5 minutes left

Orel said...

Is this a game for you, Stubbs?

Franklin Stubbs said...

It amuses me more than the futility I'm consuming on Channel 9

Orel said...

I can't imagine being a big hockey fan. Super nerve-racking.

Orel said...

Of course Loney tags it straight at Overbay, who was on the line because he was holding the runner at first.

Franklin Stubbs said...

How is Canada so mellow, then?

Orel said...

Beer. Lots and lots of beer.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*bangs head on desk*

Franklin Stubbs said...

*cracks a Molson*

Orel said...

What? D'backs scored again?

Orel said...

5-4 DP!

Orel said...

Is there sudden death in the playoffs?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I am not qualified to answer that question

Orel said...

Is beer good?

Orel said...

#AJ2KC!

Orel said...

Dee Gordon bunt results in a throwing error to second. Dodgers with first and second, no out. Seems familiar.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Beer is a Platonic Good.

Orel said...

Sands double! 6-2 D'backs.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hey, we didn't fuck it up this time!

Franklin Stubbs said...

We didn't fuck it up again!

Paul said...

Mojo risin!

Orel said...

Josh Bell taketh, Josh Bell giveth. Error puts men on first and second for the Dodgers, still no out. 6-4 D'backs.

Paul said...

Come
On
Bobby!.

Orel said...

Abreu single! 6-5 D'backs! Still no out!

Paul said...

Mojo risin!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Babbah!

Orel said...

I'm confused. Is this the Dodgers we're watching?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let's have another!

Orel said...

Breslow, Sweet Chariot

Orel said...

Andre singles! Rancho Ardiendo! Still no out!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Rancho Of Jesus.

Orel said...

Rancho R. Diendo

Paul said...

Dodgers are now in another one run game. Losers.

Orel said...

Kings applying pressure!

Orel said...

Hello, not-unattractive blonde behind the Coyotes bench.

Orel said...

Back to the Dodgers. De Jesus up.

Orel said...

Sac fly ties it!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Tie game, bishes!

Orel said...

Loney DP to end it. Back to the Kings.

Steve Sax said...

FJL GIDP. Great.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That wasn't the first word that came to mind.

Hideo Nomo said...

AJ will lead off the 8th. Let's do ALL THAT again. Except the shitty Loney part.

Franklin Stubbs said...

If we score 5 runs next inning, we can do the shitty Loney part again, for all I care.

Franklin Stubbs said...

RESUME RUN SCORING!

Hideo Nomo said...

Someone asked if I was trying to get Nomo trending on Twitter. I guess the pseudonym thing doesn't translate.

Orel said...

Coyotes with the power play.

Orel said...

@Nomo: I find it strange there are readers out there more familiar with our Twitter feed than the blog.

Erm, 140 characters are insufficient to convery the concept of a septumvirate.

Orel said...

Forbearance is the watchword. That triumvirate of Twinkies simply overwhelmed my resolve.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was less successful than last inning.

Orel said...

Lindblom in.

Paul said...

Brown swept the leg.

Orel said...

KINGS!

Paul said...

Kings!!!!!!!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, bollocks.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was the emotional equivalent of a conflicting edit.

Marla Shidoshi said...

PENIS

Orel said...

Kings win, Dodgers give up the lead.

Dusty Baker said...

Kings up in dis biiiiiiiiiiiiiish!!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Did you think Brown did anything wrong on that play?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, if we have to take a split, I'll take that one.

Hideo Nomo said...

I see we're still trading Dodgers losses for Kings wins. That's cool, only four more.

Hideo Nomo said...

DAMMIT?

Orel said...

Elian walks!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Looked low to me.

Orel said...

Abreu walks! Ethier up!

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was damn lucky.

Orel said...

Andre has a sunflower seed shell or some shit on his lip.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Holy Shit, Mr Clutch?

Franklin Stubbs said...

HD is a miracle

Franklin Stubbs said...

No DP, No DP, No DP...

Orel said...

Fuck, Ethier Ks.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ugh.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Ethier doing his best James Loney impersonation...

Orel said...

C'mon, IDJ!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jesus saves?

Orel said...

IDJ!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

IDJ IDJ IDJ!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

HOLY FLYING FUCK!

Orel said...

Holy shit. I cannot believe today.

Paul said...

DeJesus Colorado!! What a hit.

Hideo Nomo said...

OF JESUS CHRIST!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

CHUY!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

13 is my lucky number. IDJ, Wow!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

C'mon Loney ground out already. let's get Jansen on the bump

Hideo Nomo said...

I like how Vin said the Dodgers wanted Loney to come to the plate.

Orel said...

Stop reading the GT, Loney!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, SOMEBODY had to score to get Loney up there. That must me it...

Eugenio's Streak said...

Doh-n Stop, Bee-lee-vin, hol un to tat fee-ee-len...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Whoops!

Orel said...

K-WP. Bloomquist at first, no out.

Franklin Stubbs said...

DP, por favor

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, that kinda sucked. Clench up!

Franklin Stubbs said...

*clenches*

Franklin Stubbs said...

C'mon KJ!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damn, that is some gnarly neck ink.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

1 down

Franklin Stubbs said...

Dos mas.

Franklin Stubbs said...

4K inning still in play.

Hideo Nomo said...

KOO-bell

Franklin Stubbs said...

The snake rattle continues to be obnoxious.

Orel said...

shit shit shit

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yikes.

Franklin Stubbs said...

DP here.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

meatball up... bad idea Jansen

Franklin Stubbs said...

Get a leash on that thing, Kenley.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*sweats*

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

off the plate?!?!? WtF?!?!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Here we go.

Orel said...

At least the strike zone is consistent for both teams.

Orel said...

GEDP!

Orel said...

WHEW

Eugenio's Streak said...

N e 1 else distracted by drunk white tank top?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

WHEW!!! Hi Fives!!!
