Post-Game 104 Thread: Harang-O-Tagged

D-BACKS 7, DODGERS 2

Aaron Harang gave up a three-run bomb to Paul Goldschmidt in the first, followed by a grand slam to Chris Johnson in the fifth, and that was all she wrote. Harang's line: 5.0 IP, 9 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, 1 K. Not exactly the kind of night that says we want to hold onto first place now that we've clawed back to grab it on Sunday.

Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with a RBI and a run scored, but he can't do it alone. Meanwhile, Hanley Ramirez went 0-for-4 tonight with 4 LOB and a K. (Clearly, this acquisition is not working out.) The Dodgers were 1-for-12 with RISP.

The Giants are battling back from another Sergio Romo debacle (seven batters seen, 4 ER, 0.2 IP, one two-run HR) and have tied it in the bottom of the ninth. We'll see if that first-place feeling was ephemeral.

UPDATE 12:10a: Mets score two in the top of the tenth off Hairston's second HR of the game. Giants get one back in the bottom of the tenth but drop the game, their fifth straight loss. Still a tie for first in the NL West, but the Snakes are only 3.5GB.

Mets' bullpen sucks too. Two on, one out, bot 10.

Holy balls, that was a boring game.

Watched the France- North korea soccer match. Once again no Laure Boulleau. I get the feeling she's a scrub to the max.
