Game 54 Thread: June 3 @ Rox, Noon

Nathan Eovaldi (0-1, 2.57 ERA) vs. Alex White (1-3, 6.28 ERA)

The Dodgers ended their 5-game skid yesterday, basically by just playing as well as they were when they were red-hot. Seems simple, doesn't it?

Nathan Eovaldi, who was pretty damn good in his season debut (outside of one pitch to Ryan Braun), looks to get a new winning streak started.

Anyone else think they should juggle the rotation and have Eovaldi follow Capuano? That way we get Cap then Eo?

Just me?

OK.

Cmon, Nate! Throw strikes and keep it low! Let's win this series!

Steve Sax said...

Gnomes! I think starting yesterday's GT :01 after normal broke the superstition... Let's see what happens today...

Dusty Baker said...

I was going to do a GT with Captain Eo as a theme then a) realized the game was an early one hence b) Nomo had already done the job.

Dylan Hernandez JUST tweeted this:

#Dodgers beat #Rockies, 6-2, on Saturday night to end five-game losing streak: lat.ms/Mlt40T

He's getting lazier by the day.

Paul said...

Going to watch the Angels and Giants triple A teams play and I'll be wearing my blue proudly.

Dusty Baker said...

Rock that Blue, Paul!

Hideo Nomo said...

Could've been worse, I guess.

Dusty Baker said...

Our new SS is named Gordoni. Tiny little Italian speedster.

Fred's Brim said...

take some walks, fellas

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, AJ

Fred's Brim said...

Ellis with the big back knocks down the throw to avoid the double play

Fred's Brim said...

why is Nate swinging? Has Donnie stopped using the bunt on sundays?

Fred's Brim said...

wow - Nate draws the walk after being down 0-2

Fred's Brim said...

Dee, you dick - this asshole just walked the pitcher and you swing at the first pitch

Fred's Brim said...

wild pitch moves the runners up to 2nd and 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

make that a passed ball

Fred's Brim said...

and a wimpy flare from Elian leaves them out there

Dusty Baker said...

Stop hitting it on the ground to Helton god dammit!

Fred's Brim said...

Loney loneys

Fred's Brim said...

at least we won't be no-hit

Dusty Baker said...

Slightly longer pop out than usual for Loney to end the inning.

Fred's Brim said...

no walks, Nate

Dusty Baker said...

Nice move to first for Eo.

Fred's Brim said...

Cudchewer has some dumb shades

Dusty Baker said...

Eo's hat looks newer than yours, FB!

Fred's Brim said...

Helton wins the battle with Nate, draws the walk

Fred's Brim said...

haha that's not true anymore!

Fred's Brim said...

Lineout to Dre gets Nate out of it

Fred's Brim said...

That ball was thrown to third by the time AJ swung at it

Fred's Brim said...

Tony swings a low ball. We are swinging at too much for a guy who hasn't been in the zone much today

Fred's Brim said...

Huge chopper from Rosario and he beats the throw from Elian

Dusty Baker said...

That was one big Baltimore Chop.

Fred's Brim said...

Tony tries to double-up Rosario after the liner from DJ LameHue

Dusty Baker said...

Strike em out, throw em out! Now let's get some runs.

Fred's Brim said...

woop - strik-em-out, throw-em-out double play!

Steve Sax said...

How about some runs for Nate, please?

Fred's Brim said...

pleasepleaseplease take pitches from this bum

karina said...

epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

Aubreu swung at first pitch.

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, K!

Dusty Baker said...

^ Abreu

I'd like ABrew.

Dusty Baker said...

From 0-2 to a walk for ABrew.

Fred's Brim said...

Bobby with the walk after being down 0-2

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

You blocked my 45, FB. Now my day is ruined.

Dusty Baker said...

ABrew steals second.

Dusty Baker said...

Ethier has had some really shitty ABs today. Swings at first pitch and flies out weakly.

Fred's Brim said...

Sorry, DB. I hope we can win this game and reclaim some of the day for you

Dusty Baker said...

Strawberry and banana kabobs? We'd be lucky to get a dead mouse and EK's hair clipping kabob at DS.

Fred's Brim said...

fug - goddamn walks

Fred's Brim said...

nice try to turn two

Fred's Brim said...

damn

Fred's Brim said...

Cudchewer with a long fly ball advances Scutaro to third with 2 outs. Gonzales still at first

Dusty Baker said...

Throw at cargo at first.

Fred's Brim said...

goddamn Helton

karina said...

I feel Cargo kills us anytime i'm around here :(

Dusty Baker said...

Well fuck me. 2-0 Rox.

Still wouldn't be horrible if we could score some friggin runs.

Fred's Brim said...

sit the fuck down, Payton.

Fred's Brim said...

shitshitshite - Ferdie Pacheco with a double

Dusty Baker said...

Still only three runs in the sixth in CO. We can still do this.

But we won't.

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Fred's Brim said...

3R homer coming up

Fred's Brim said...

Lindblom hasn't been good in at least a month

Fred's Brim said...

well at least Kennedy is in...

Fred's Brim said...

and he gets out of it

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, fellas, let's get something going

Dusty Baker said...

Loney will get us going!

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

Loney with the good at-bat, draws the walk

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

AJ2KC puts us on the board!!!!

karina said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Dee hits it where they wain't!

Dusty Baker said...

Little nubber from our little nubber Gordoni moves AK to second.

Two men on and we're in bidness. But w two outs.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Alexis, keep us going

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Castle!

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus Colorado what an aggressive swing.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Alex said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

nice at-bat, Dre

Dusty Baker said...

Two straight ABs where Dre swung at the first pitch.

Fred's Brim said...

boring

Dusty Baker said...

Running out of outs here, boys and girls.

Fred's Brim said...

at least we have our good hitters coming up in the ninth

karina said...

it ain't over 'till it's over, FB

Fred's Brim said...

100

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, I was serious about our good hitters

Fred's Brim said...

damnfuckshit, Castellanos' ball should have been a hit

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Scotty

Fred's Brim said...

stupid coors field - he hit that with his ass and it nearly went to the track in center

Fred's Brim said...

that's right, let Helton do it to us again

Fred's Brim said...

christ

Fred's Brim said...

lucky to get one

Fred's Brim said...

finish this, Elbert

Fred's Brim said...

ok let's get Scotty a win

Fred's Brim said...

Jesus Loney Colorado
what a freakin waste

Fred's Brim said...

holydam AJ, so close

Hideo Nomo said...

I saw that one with my heart.

Fred's Brim said...

I saw that one with Coors-colored glasses

Fred's Brim said...

that one too
*sigh*

Hideo Nomo said...

Unhappy birthday to me.

Fred's Brim said...

Surl through the roof right now

karina said...

they can't win'em all

we'll get them later, for sure

Fred's Brim said...

Sorry, Josh

They didn't win on my birthday, either

Alex said...

HBD NOMO!

Alex said...

(cries)

Steve Sax said...

Wow, we've dropped six of seven. Not good.

I'm sure Philly will be an easy four-game series for us.

NicJ said...

We might come back home in second place.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey, those last two fly outs would be homers in Philly.

NicJ said...

I would say we go 1-3 in Philly. Combine the fact with us already playing like shit to us never playing well against Philly.

Kersh wins tomorrow and it is all downhill from there.

Fred's Brim said...

blah

Dusty Baker said...

Too surly and belligerent to post PGT.
