Game 128 Thread: August 26 vs. Marlins, 1p

Aaron Harang (9-7, 3.65) vs. Mark Buehrle (11-11, 3.69).

Greetings, thrill-seekers! If you like traveling from lows to highs in very short periods of time, following the 2012 Dodgers is the ride for you. Fresh off a gut-punch sweep at the hands of the Giants, the Dodgers are now in a position to sweep the Marlins and regain their mojo.

While the pitching of late has been strong, the story has been the hot bats. You heard me. The Dodgers have scored 19 runs in their last two games, and the pinch-me-I'm-dreaming heart of the order of Kemp-Gonzalez-Ramirez-Ethier is just leaving the station. Permanecer sentados por favor!

UPDATE: Via @yvonnecarrasco:

Fernando Valenzuela meets with Adrian Gonzalez. Seems Gonzalez always has a knack for wearing just the right shirt.

UPDATE: A clearer shot:

Here's A.J.'s chance to make everybody look bad.

Sax channels Orel!

International DAMMIT owed by Sax.

Orel said...

I hope those two solo homers aren't the difference.

Orel said...

Nope. Fly out.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers are 2-47 trailing after eight. Thanks, Charley.

Orel said...

Last-chance Mellis.

Dusty Baker said...

When did the LA logo on the pitcher's mound turn blue?

Pardon me if this has already been discussed.

Orel said...

Full count!

Orel said...

At least he hit it hard. 16 LOB.

Dusty Baker said...

Roller coaster was definitely the right graphic for the GT today. Maybe a roller coaster disaster image should be the MFPGT?

Steve Sax said...

Fuck, ellises.

Steve Sax said...

@Orel, charley says 14 LOB, but he likely forgot the ninth and/or is drunk

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like to forget the ninth and be drunk.

Steve Sax said...

Not a good time to 0-fer, Hanley

Steve Sax said...

Box score says 16 LOB. Charley picked the wrong time to stop sniffing glue

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's all on you, Barves.
