Post-Game 101 Thread: Dodgers Pull a Catwoman

DODGERS 5, GIANTS 3 (10)

The Dodgers snuck into AT&T Park and burgled a win from the Giants tonight. Let's face it: Cain vs. Fife? Who expected the Dodgers to win? And who expected Matt Cain to give up three earned runs? Who expected Stephen Fife to hold the Giants to one run over 6 1/3 innings — and contribute a double and run scored? So, expectations: yeah.

The Dodgers carried a 3-1 lead into the eighth, when the increasingly worrisome Ronald Belisario allowed two singles and a double to tie the game. But Shawn Tolleson held the Giants in the ninth, setting the stage for Hanley Ramirez's first home run as a Dodger: a two-run blast off Sergio Romo — only the second homer (and fourth run) he's allowed this season.

Kenley Jansen allowed two hits but managed to get the save. Andre Ethier went 2 for 4 with two runs scored. Matt Kemp went 0 for 5 but made an outstanding catch with two Giants on to end the fourth.

Oh, and about Ramirez's celebratory hand gesture:

I'm still not feeling VSIMH since he started monitoring comments a few years ago before I SoSG'd.

Ñeeebs said...

Er..You saw that.

The Giants post-game show is funereal. Wish I could gif it.

Schadenfreude is the sweetest freude of all!

I wonder how many times we'll hear about Treanor's wife in the next couple of weeks.

Hey we just met you
And your contract is crazy
But here's your number
So rake it Hanley.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: +1
