Game 96 Thread: July 22 @ Mets, 10a

Meet our new outfield.

Nathan Eovaldi (1-6, 4.33) vs. Jon Niese (7-4, 3.58).

What is it about New York that brings out the unlikeliest behavior in the Dodgers? They've scored 15 runs in their first two games at Citi Field, with Juan Uribe and James Loney combining to go 4 for 8 with five RBI and four runs yesterday. Today the Dodgers can complete their first sweep in forever by giving Nate Eovaldi some decent run support. In fact, I'd like to see them make a habit of it.

Fred's Brim said...

Hi everybody. I am chump for not going to the game today. Because I am not going, something special will happen. But If I had gone, we would have lost 10-2

Dusty Baker said...

Drinking Dogfish head 60 Minute IPA, Steve Lyons!

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty up in dat bish!

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry gets us going with a single to left

Fred's Brim said...

this ump is screaming the strikes

I think it may be Enrico Palazzo

Fred's Brim said...

Mellis Ks on a backdoor something.
Remember that next time, Mark

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with a long fly out to center

Orel said...

Leadoff single wasted.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre flies out as well, Jerry stranded at first

Fred's Brim said...

7 lefties facing Nate today

Orel said...

Dodgers get the Cardinals next. Giants get...the Padres.

Fred's Brim said...

because lefties are hitting .339 against him

Fred's Brim said...

good inning, Nate

Orel said...

1-2-3 for Eo!

Fred's Brim said...

the Mets have cleared their righties

Orel said...

Still time to jump on the subway and make it to the stadium, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

that looked like a third strike to me

Fred's Brim said...

and Murphy weasels a single through the right side

Orel said...

And the fun begins. 1st & 2nd, no out for the Mets.

Fred's Brim said...

big K from Nate for out number 1

Fred's Brim said...

popup for out number 2

Fred's Brim said...

Matty nearly gets eaten up by that but it's thee third out. I'll take it

Orel said...

Good job by Eo to get out unscathed.

Fred's Brim said...

lucky hit for AJEllis

Orel said...

Wright & Tejada not on the same page there. Not even in the same ZIP code.

Fred's Brim said...

Nate gets down the bunt

Orel said...

Eovaldi joins the proud tradition of Dodger bunters!

Orel said...

A.J.: uncashed.

Fred's Brim said...

Damn - Ellis hasn't figure out Niese yet

Fred's Brim said...

cheapy single extends the inning for Wright

Fred's Brim said...

yes Juan!

Dusty Baker said...

Three beers down to start the third inning.

I'm at least two behind.

Fred's Brim said...

Murphy barely with a double, looked like a foul ball

Fred's Brim said...

single to left but Murphy stops at third even though he was waved home

Fred's Brim said...

Big K for the second out. Now finish this

Fred's Brim said...

dammit

Fred's Brim said...

you get the hard out but cant get the last out
fuck

Fred's Brim said...

Nate gets the pitcher for the third out
2-1 good guys

Hideo Nomo said...

Goddamn Giants stop winning! I want to kick ALL the balls.

Orel said...

KKKKKKK

Fred's Brim said...

nasty breaking pitch to get Tejada finally

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe cant pick up the bunt

Fred's Brim said...

crap - a roller up the middle puts runners at first at third with 1 out

Fred's Brim said...

and Donny pulls the plug on Nate

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Nate

Fred's Brim said...

Elbert in. Did he leave the gascan in the bullpen?

Fred's Brim said...

again with a big K to get the second out. Please close this out

Fred's Brim said...

go-ahead run allowed to trot down to second

Fred's Brim said...

Jerry catches the third out

Fred's Brim said...

Ellis gets on with a ball that eats up Wright's backhand

Fred's Brim said...

Matty just missed that one

Orel said...

Smart baserunning by Mellis. Let's get some Geico here!

Fred's Brim said...

Dre knocks in Ellis! 3-1

Orel said...

Would have been a closer play at the plate if Niese hadn't slowed down the outfielder's throw. But we'll take it! 3-1 Dodgers.

Orel said...

Q*bert in for another inning against the Mets' lefty squad.

Fred's Brim said...

Dammit Elbert, you really stink sometimes

Orel said...

Save us, Tolleson!

Orel said...

Wow, thought that was gone.

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe has decided that after yesterday, he is done for the month

Fred's Brim said...

AJ gets on

Fred's Brim said...

Loney pinch hitting against a lefty, nearly Loneys

Fred's Brim said...

Tolleson gets the strikeout of Wright

Orel said...

Wow, nasty pitch on the outside by Tolleson to K Wright!

Fred's Brim said...

dammitall, ump. This is your inning

Orel said...

Why wasn't that strike 3?

Steve Sax said...

Phils tied with gnats at 3. Pull one of these out, phillies!!!

Fred's Brim said...

fuck!
you stink, ump!

Orel said...

Bad call costs us a run. 3-2 Dodgers.

Steve Sax said...

Oh no. Hey, I have to turn my cell phone off to fly. I leave this to you guys. Win it!

Steve Sax said...

If we lose this it's Fred's brim's fault

Steve Sax said...

Orel, I specifically leave this to YOU.

I'll be back when gogo inflight comes on

Steve Sax said...

Depending on how much gogO inflight is

Steve Sax said...

We escape the 7th.

GO DODGERS!!!!!!

Orel said...

I got this, Sax. Guaranteed win.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, can I use SoSG funds to reimburse gogo inflight expenses? What will the CFO say?

Fred's Brim said...

Ellis with a hard shot off Wright.
Let's see if Matty and Dre can get us a run back

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with a hard single to left

Orel said...

Mellis single! Kemp single!

Steve Sax said...

Orel, you got it. We're counting on you.

#LeslieNielsen

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax, I will take full responsibility as long as I can take Orel down with me

Orel said...

"What will the CFO say?"

I'm surprised Delino isn't at Citi Field right now.

Steve Sax said...

Where is Urine with his late-game two-run HR?

Fred's Brim said...

Damn Dre, take a pitch

Steve Sax said...

FB, the Citi Field Shake Shack is overrated anyway.

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax how can it be overrated? It has such a long line

Fred's Brim said...

Bobby works the count but can't get anything to hit
Luis Cruz is our last chance to not WAO

Fred's Brim said...

AWO

Fred's Brim said...

Thole with a one-out single

Fred's Brim said...

yes, double play to get us through the 8th

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Nice doble play! Thats some D right there. That's what that is.

3 more outs to go. Who's closing today?

Fred's Brim said...

Javy up

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Javy? OK that'll work

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Was just telling my daughter bout Urines game yesterday and she goes, "what!? He hit a home run? What the heck?!"

Fred's Brim said...

AJ gets on again with a well-placed roller

Fred's Brim said...

*sigh*

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

C'mon Javy you got this

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Javy, get tough!

Fred's Brim said...

good play by Javy on the bunt

Fred's Brim said...

Ellis saves the lead for the time being

Orel said...

Mellis saves the tying run, sets up the DP opportunity.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

I will say that inning was a little unlucky for Javy

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@fred yup weak ass hits by the Mets.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

that's not a good start

Hideo Nomo said...

This is smells like a loss. Have to go now. Hope I'm wrong.

Fred's Brim said...
