Post-Game 123 Thread: Bumrushed

"Y U NO HIT?"

GIANTS 2, DODGERS 1

Remember yesterday, when the heart of the order went 0 for 13 and we still won? Turns out that doesn't work against the Giants. Ashley Madison Bumsteadgarner dominated the Dodgers, with Kemp, Hanley and Ethier combining to go 1 for 12. That "1" was a solo Hanley homer in the ninth, but it was too little, too late.

So who did show up tonight? Exactly two Dodgers: Luis Cruz (2 for 3) and Clayton Kershaw. Once again, Kershaw deserved better, going eight strong with 10 Ks and making a spectacular but scary diving catch in the third inning:

Back to second place. We do it again tomorrow as Blanton takes on Lincecum. Melky who?

Always nice to lose the must have game.

SWEEEEEEEP!!!

Blanton's going to have to get a win sometime, right?




Right?







Guys?

Well win the next two and move on.

@Sax

Time for the Giants to wear Peds, not ingest 'em.

NicJ said...

Lincecum is having a shitty year but he still pitches well against us.

It is just frustrating how well this team plays on the road and then comes home and lays an egg. I think they are like

1-4 in home series after the ASB so far.

Chad Beardingsley said...

After watching Kersh make that stunning catch midway through the game, I thought the Dodgers had turned the corner on this game.

Frustrating, for sure.

I want to see this turned around tomorrow night, with Timmeh -- dirty hair and all -- back to his losing ways against the Dodgers.

No mere wall was standing in the way of Trayvon Robinson making this spectacular grab: http://atmlb.com/QUKw8r

All right, that's a pretty sweet catch.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 12:01a: shit, you beat me to it. Great minds think alike. And love the Dodgers.

We are like a lecherous salesman who travels a lot for work. Out on the road we are scooping up ladies at the hotel bar and hitting up strip clubs on the regular. And when we come home, we can't get it up for our own wife.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's beyond time that I get down there in person and straighten this shit out, but I'm on the road for a few days.

I hope they can manage to win one of the next two without my "calming" influence.
