Post-Game 38 Thread: Dodgers Take Split Friars

Split fryer, get it?

DODGERS 8, PADRES 1

Three-game loss streak still averted, thanks to Aaron Harang shutting the Padres down through seven strong (4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 Ks), along with the bat of Andre Ethier (2-for-4, 2 R and 1 RBI) and A.J. Ellis (also 2-for-4, but inversely with 1 R and 2 RBI). Tony Gwynn also went 2-for-4 in the 8-hole.

Sure, it's a split with the Padres, but we'll take it. Back home tomorrow, opening a three game series with the Cardinals. Yikes, from Padres to Cardinals. I can't take all this religion all at once.

"Here's your taco, Mister. Whoops. It fell in the fryer. I'll get it out. Ow! Ow! Ow-w-w! Ow-w-w!"

Jesus Colorado! This game took forever. If I wanted games that long I'd watch the American League. I started about 45 mins behind on TiVo and could never catch up...it was like some weird anti-time matter took hold.

It was only 3:03! But the first three innings did take an hour. I noted to myself in my car that it was after 8 and I was still hearing Vin on the radio.

And Todd Coffey pitches with the speed of natural erosion.

Todd Coffey IS natural erosion.

Nice work last night - singles, doubles, triples and good pitching. I like it!

Dusty Baker said...

Abreu's post game interview was hilarious. Lyons asked him why he didnt try for that second triple and he said after the first one, he just didn't have the legs and that he was looking at the third base coach saying please give me the stop sign! Please!

@Nomo

I guess I should have said "felt like it took forever."

Bunch of other people on the twitters said the same thing, so I think I'm not insane. I hope.

Seeing the Dodgers play this great is second to nun.

Abbott it took you a while to come up with that one, Quad.

I was surprised nobody else took the cue. Someone had to start this bishop.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I would have beaten you to it, had I not be deacon around.

Dusty Baker said...

Quit mission with us, you guys.

I'd join in this fray, but I have indigestion and I have to Pope.

Dusty Baker said...

Enough of this Pontifficating.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I would have stopped before this if Dusty hadn't Benedict about it.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's Nuncio guys after lunch with worse puns than these.

Dusty Baker said...

Aquinas seem to stop. Help!

Neeebs * said...

I need to stop as well, because Ava Marie Osmond concert to attend.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Do you put tonsure magic bloomers for that concert, Neeebs?
