Post-Game 153 Thread: Kershaw Toughs One Out

DODGERS 5, REDS 3

Clayton Kershaw hadn't pitched in 12 days. For his safety, we didn't want him to pitch tonight. Apparently, he disagreed. His outing was so-so — 5.0 IP, 1 ER, 5 BB, 5 K, 10 baserunners — but showed Dodger fans that as long as this team has a ghost of a chance, he's going to throw until his arm drops off. Figuratively, people.

Oh, and Adrian Gonzalez owns Homer Bailey, hitting two solo home runs off him tonight. In 16 career ABs against Bailey, Gonzalez now has five homers. So if A-Gon can face Bailey for every single AB left in this season, we're good!

Lenny: Hey, big fight coming up.

Karl: Yeah, you wanna come over to my house and listen to round-by-round updates on the radio?

Lenny: Oh, yeah, okay. Oh, and then after the fight, we can watch the still photos on the 11 o'clock news.

Karl: Not too shabby!

Pretty impressive by those Ravens fans on the synchronized profanity chanting.

Steve Sax said...

But can they do the wave?

It's an NFL game, not a Mensa meeting.

@ Orel

Better hope the Dustettes didn't read that Newsies comment, and that it wasn't meant to be negative. They will cut you.
