Game 24 Thread: April 28 vs. Brewers, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (2-2 2.14) vs. Kyle Lohse (1-1, 2.52).

Lohse has had four starts this year, the most of which earned him his only win--but had to leave after 5.0 IP with a dislocated pinkie. Hey, we Dodgers know injuries; he should feel right at home at the Stadium.

Kershaw was nails the first three outings of the year: 2-1 record, 7.0 IP+ per game, 7+ Ks per game and no more than 3 BBs per game. His last two starts (vs. SD, @ NYM), a different story: 0-1 record, no more than 5.1 IP, 5 Ks and 4 BBs in each. According to the MLB.com game preview, "[Kershaw] hasn't lost velocity, but three two-out walks in an inning is a red flag." Sounds like they're trying to get into Kid K's head!

The Brewers definitely got into the Dodgers' heads last night, stealing a 6-4 victory by mesmerizing Los Angeles with with their new, horrifyingly putrid mustard-colored alternate jerseys. I can think of much better ways to use mustard-colored apparel.

So let's see if the Dodgers can win today's rubber match and come away a wiener.

(Oh, and Sax will be at the game today. I don't know if you've already bought Dodgers tickets yet, but post if you'll be there as well, and maybe we can grab a beer. Or at least a Dodger Dog. Ah, screw the GT theme; beer it is.)

1. LF: Carl Crawford
2. 2B: Nick Punto
3. 1B: Adrian Gonzalez
4. CF: Matt Kemp
5. RF: Andre Ethier batting .238
6. C: Ramon Hernandez batting .067
7. 3B: Juan Uribe batting .200
8. SS: Justin Sellers batting .224
9. SP: Clayton Kershaw

The bottom half of today's lineup is a barren wasteland. Guess I know when I'll be making beer runs.

Celtics up by 19 at half.

Guys, I wrote a post on Robots for the first time in almost a year. And some of you get mentions.

That's an annoying trend, Matty.

Erin said...

It would be nice to see him quit being so casual and "cool" out there.

Steve Sax said...

Got here just in time for the Crawford hr

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw sure looks like he's getting hit more

Franklin Stubbs said...

First inning jitters? We can only hope!

Franklin Stubbs said...

WOW, excessive celebration foul ball guy.

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez up. I can smell it from here

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez is so bad. I mean, I know Harang is sucking, but surely we could have done better than this.

Is Lo Duca available?

Steve Sax said...

Stubbs, I updated the sidebar for your loss yesterday...

Steve Sax said...

Even Urine can get a hit, hernandez

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, swell.

Steve Sax said...

So one out of the three piles of suck reached base. Sigh.

Steve Sax said...

Steal, Juan

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw hit the ball farther than Hernandez or Sellers

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, at least we can't get runs taken away.

Can we?

Steve Sax said...

Man, this improved wifi at the stadium rocks

Hideo Nomo said...

Sitting comfortably in field 42, by probably on an innings limit since I'm here with a 3 1/2 year old.

Hideo Nomo said...

What wi-fi?

Dusty Baker said...

Damn I didn't know you guys were heading to the game or else I would have, too.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah what Wifi? I haven't ever detected an open channel when I was there.

Steve Sax said...

1-0 lead won't hold up

But that was a big fifth K for kershaw

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez needs to be put to pasture

Steve Sax said...

In San francisco

Steve Sax said...

Why is Puig pulling a Chapman?

Steve Sax said...

Urine, that swing was fucking pathetic.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Carl's got this, y'all.

Dusty Baker said...

This Crawford guy, he's going to amount to something some day.

MR.F said...

Wow Carl Crawford

KKKKKKKKKK

Dusty Baker said...

Weisman just retweeted an LA Times story re Puig. #OldNews

Franklin Stubbs said...

Is it possible he was bitten by Padilla at some point?

Steve Sax said...

How fitting it is that Justin Sellers, absent from the plate all year long, has Awolnation as his walk-up song

Dusty Baker said...

@Stubbs

I was actually going to make a Padilla reference. Glad you didn't let that one go.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Urine just run the runner down?

BJ Killeen said...

PUIG: bad boy! Sit! Stay! Why can't you be more line your brother Carl Crawford?

Dusty Baker said...

HanRam looking good in his rehab assignment. Will he be activated for Tuesday's game? Hopefully so.

Lindsay Lohan not doing as well in her rehab reassignment.

Dusty Baker said...

Party=made
