Post-Game 145 Thread: At Laaaaaaaast

DODGERS 8, CARDINALS 5

For the first time in the past nine games, the Dodgers scored more than three runs. For the first time in a long time, they hit more than one home run in a game. And for the first time in forever, they weren't just solo homers.

Andre Ethier hit a two-run shot in the third, and Luis Cruz put the Dodgers ahead with a three-run jack in the sixth. Adrian Gonzalez added a two-RBI double in the seventh. Matt Kemp went 0 for 4, but it didn't matter in the end. See how that works?

Enjoy tonight's victory while you can, because it wasn't all happy happy joy joy today. Clayton Kershaw is questionable for Sunday's game due to his hip issue, and it's been confirmed Ted Lilly is out for the season. On the other hand, Kenley Jansen is supposed to be available starting Tuesday.

Back to one game behind in the mild card race. Momentum, how does it work?

Wow, we can't even count on Lilly for a seventeen-game stretch (roughly three starts). Yay.
