Post-Game 37 Thread: Afternoon Disaster

PADRES 4, DODGERS 2

The Dodgers scored two runs in the top of the first, catalyzed by a Tony Gwynn single and an Elian Herrera double (Herrera scored on a Andre Ethier sacrifice fly. "So with a lineup that doesn't LOOK like it's going to score," said Vin Scully, "darned if they don't get a run with the first two hitters!"

But Scully was right, that was all the scoring we would do. Clayton Richard shut us down for his second win on the season, improving to 2-5, and Chris Capuano--who had a decent 6.1 IP with 3 ER (all off the bat of Chase Headley) and 6 Ks--took the loss. The Dodgers were so lifeless offensively today (on a day where Ethier was the only opening day starter in the lineup), that they sent up .236 BA James Loney at the end as the tying run, with Bobby Abreu in scoring position. Loney popped to third to end the game. And there we go. How soon are Jerry Hairston and Matt Kemp back, again?

At least the Lakers are sure to win tonight. We can use this as the Game 2 GT.

Cardinals at Giants, about to start. Rox up on Snakes 3-0, B4 (in Colorado)

Steve Sax said...

As of this second, the Dodgers are 5.5. up on .500 SF; 8.0 up on the Snakes; 9.0 up on the Rox, and 10.5 up on the team to which we just lost.

@Nomo, me too. For me, part of it is his lips-not-big-enough-to-cover-his-fat-choppers-so-it-looks-like-a-smug-grin thing happening on that stupid face of his

This Rangers-Devils game is a battle. I know Gary Bettman would rather have NY vs LA in the finals but the Rangers, and their fans are annoying

3-2 Devils, under 12 left in the third

NicJ said...

What channel is the Laker game on? I have it on TNT but all I see is whistling zebras.

Fred's Brim said...

except for that double takedown

Spank said...

I was called for a foul while i grabbed my 40 of Steel Reserve. Must have been a holding call.

Fred's Brim said...

or Hand Pass

Devils win 3-2, series tied 1-1 going back to Newark

Spank said...

You would think by the way Marv and Reggie are talking about OKC that the Lakers are down by 30 points.

Steve Sax said...

Tied at 53 in the third! Hoo boy

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't believe the Lakers are winning.

Spank said...

Horrible possession.

Spank said...

Spank said...

Spank said...

Yo tengo miedo.

Spank said...

KOBE! What a shot.

NicJ said...

Fisher is lurking, I can feel it.

Spank said...

Lakers are tired.

Spank said...

Bynum has his hands on his hips gasping for air. I've never seen that before.

Spank said...

Laker bigs are done.

Spank said...

75-68 Lakers. 2 minutes left. It's going to take all they got left to finish this mofo off.

Spank said...

Well fuck. Let's hand it to OKC.

NicJ said...

And two quick turnovers.

lakers are toast.

Spank said...

shit

NicJ said...

Play 46 minutes of super disciplined ball and then that.

Spank said...

Fuck

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Go Kings!

NicJ said...

Can't even fucking believe that.

Spank said...

Wow! I didn't even know I had You,Me and Dupree on DVD.
