Post-Game 26 Thread: Abreu Picks Up Where He Left Off

CUBS 5, DODGERS 4

Two eighth-inning runs off the bats of Mellis, Matt Kemp (who tripled) and Andre Ethier (who sacrificed in Kemp) made it close. And Jerry Hairston went 3-for-4 with a HR. But Chad Billingsley's second non-sharp start of the year gave up two runs early, and the Dodgers' game of catch-up simply ran out of time. Scott Elbert failing to retire any batters in the seventh didn't help (Elbert is credited with an out, but it was really a AJellis CS that caused it).

Oh, and new Dodger Bobby Abreu? He entered in the seventh PH for Bills and struck out. Oh sure, he stayed in the game and came up again with two out and one on in the ninth, but he flied out then as well, ending the game. Dodgers are 0-1 in the Abreu era, and have more early morning baseball tomorrow. But no, I'm not bitter.

When is that Lakers game tipoff again? 7.30p? Okay, I'll keep drinking and just wait for that.

Bobby hit that fly ball on the button though.

He also got a crappy strike zone in his first AB.

Go see Avengers, Saxy. It's the cure for what ails ya.

Hideo Nomo said...

No NL West teams are playing each other, so there's a chance no one gains ground. (DBacks already losing.)

Sax tried to see the Avengers, but the theater wouldn't let him in without pants.

Steve Sax said...

You're right, Marla. I mean, if the Hulk doesn't have to wear a shirt, why should I have to wear pants?

Snakes down 4-2 to the Mets in the eighth.

Rox up 5-0 on the Braves in the second.

This is obviously off topic, but Goodwill has an online auction site. They currently have a Dodger cap autographed by the McCourts that can be yours for the low low price of $4.99!

More interestingly, they have a couple of Maury Wills autographed photos...

DBacks came back and won. Braves came back and are leading the Rox. Gnats losing to Brewers.

Oh, and that Weaver no-no wasn't quite the corner-turner Angel fans were hoping for. They're already down 3-0.

I want to go watch Avengers again.
