Post-Game 128 Thread: AGon Tastes Dodger Defeat


Adrian Gonzalez alone (2-for-4 with an RBI) couldn't save the Dodgers from the final game in the Marlins series, which was a close game throughout until Shawn Tolleson gave up back-to-back jacks in the ninth to Jose Reyes and Carlos Lee. Aaron Harang-utan was evolutionary (5.1 IP, 3 ER, 1 BB, 4 Ks, 2 HR), but Shane Victorino was great (3-for-5 in lead off plus a great catch in left field) and Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier both showed up.

Hanley Ramirez went 0-for-4 with a BB and had a brutal 8 LOB; the Dodgers had 16 LOB collectively. Still, with this lineup, the game never felt out of reach. Let's just hope I'm not fantasizing (as does happen).

As I write this, Atlanta is up 2-0 on Lincecum and the Chardonnays through one inning. Time to root for Atlanta, one of the few real opponents SF faces from here on out.

Go Dodgers!

Braves won. Lead is still two games with 34 to play.

Are the Padres the best team in the NL West right now?
