Game 158 Thread: Sept 29 vs. Rockies, 6p

Joe Blanton (1-4, 5.57) vs. Tyler Chatwood (5-5, 5.49).

Blanton got his first Dodger win in his last outing, seven days ago. We're down by three games with five for both us and the Cardinals to play. That gives us a tragic number of 3 out of the ten possible relevant outcomes that could happen. So it's not like the season rests on the shoulders of Joe Blanton, right? Right?!

(The print edition of the LA Times already laid claim to the pun Dodgers behind the eight ball, referring to the Dodgers scoring eight runs the last three games. But tonight, will eight be enough?)

Cards down 1-0 in the first, Nats still threatening

Loving this current GT theming. I will go play some slots with a pool/8-ball theme later and donate any proceeds to SoSG operating expenses. Conversely, I will send our accounting dept a bill for any losses.

@Dusty 5:34p: yeah, if we're going to be behind the 8-ball, this is the behind I want.

Ramirez with a one-out single, then a SB!

But, Victorino is at the plate...

You gotta watch the highlights of Michael Morse's phantom grand salami in St Louis. Funny stuff.

Dodgers are teasing us just so the Giants can step on our neck

Lead off single in the seventh chases Blanton, who admittedly pitched a nice six innings.

@Sax

I was watching a re-cap of the Morse grand slam, but in a sports bar with no sound. Not knowing what happened, it was awfully confusing to watch them telestrate arrows around the bases, then watch him back up, then go back around...shit was cra cra.

So, um, what actually happened?
