Game 6 Thread: April 7 vs. Pirates, 1p

Hyun-Jin Ryu (0-1, 1.42) vs. Jeff Locke (0-0, -.--).

The Dodgers have held the Bucs scoreless over two games. Of course you gotta beat the bad teams, but let's not pretend we can trot out Greinke and Kershaw every series. So we turn to Ryu, who was steady but not overly impressive in his debut in blue. The Pirates are the only homerless team in the majors, so here's hoping the Dodgers pitching staff keeps it that way.

As for Locke, who was promoted to Pittsburgh's rotation after two years of spot-starting? The Dodgers are tied with the lowly Marlins for the second-lowest run total in the majors, so the (Jimmy) Key is: Start hitting with runners in scoring position already. Let's do this!

UPDATE: Sax just found out he's going to the game. He won't be too mobile during the game, but if you're going, leave a comment in this thread...

Hey, it's Chris Leroux. I have a worn out tape by him.

Sellblock showing some tattooed muscle!

Alex said...

Sellblock goes yard!

Dusty Baker said...

SellBlock goes Yard! It's a jailbreak!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sellblock!

rbnlaw said...

Wait. What?

rbnlaw said...

So GBA on Sundays only? I can live with it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I wish I could say the Clippers would make some noise in the playoffs, but they're softer than a bag of Charmin. Even with Barnes.

Wicks said...

Man Hollywood has some great computer technology these days. That CGI of Sellers hitting a HR was soooo life like!

rbnlaw said...

And Sellers is totally trolling me.

Fucker.

Orel said...

Never seen so many readers confounded by a Dodger HR!

Dusty Baker said...

Barely a zephyr, per Vin. I love old people words.

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats still down 9-2. Feels good.

Dusty Baker said...

MEllis at .991 lifetime fielding average for 2B. That is just sick.

Orel said...

Just tweeted that, Dusty!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on, Matty. No pressure here...we're up 3...get on track with a nice double down the line.

Orel said...

Punto SB!

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Pirates are more fun to make fun of when Martin's behind the plate.

Orel said...

Kemp draws the walk. It's a start.

Orel said...

@Cliffy "The Pirates are more fun to make fun of when Martin's behind the plate."

So true!

Orel said...

DAMN THAT MUSIC IS LOUD

Orel said...

AGon's fourth RBI of the day? Wow!

Dusty Baker said...

That pitching mound song was freaking loud! I could hear it from my patio.

Orel said...

AGon may be losing his power but he can still knock 'em in.

rbnlaw said...

Offense. Who knew?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, JHa Kid - I want to see a Pie rat pounding here.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll take AGon doubles all day if Matty can get the HR ball cranked up.

Cliff Beefpile said...

In the last week, we've learned that in order to play a really good third base you have to have a minimum BMI of 35.

Orel said...

Mellis is a beast with the leather today!

Dusty Baker said...

Please for the love of god don't tell us about Neil Walker's dad again.

Hideo Nomo said...

Neil Degrasse Walker

Cliff Beefpile said...

Much like the ump today, my comma usage is all over the goddamn place. I blame booze and dropping out of community college.

Orel said...

Neil deGrasse Walker Texas Ranger

Dusty Baker said...

Let's pound some pie rat ass now, just for fun, boys. Else I'll have to figure out something else to do with my life the rest of this fine Sunday.

Dusty Baker said...

"NOW Open for Breakfast" should not be in quotation marks, Burrito Express!

Cliff Beefpile said...

That goddamn Jon Miller call in that MLB Extra Innings commercial is really starting to piss me off.

Too much hate for a Sunday game against the Pirates.

Dusty Baker said...

Ramon Hernandez steps in. 37 years young!

Dusty Baker said...

@Cliff

Just keep repeating to yourself "9-2 Cards over Gnats". It helps.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That "ovation" for Hernandez was very Monty Python-esque.

"And the crowd goes wild."
"yaaay."

Orel said...

Nomo, what are you thinking with @Dodgers' reply to Todd? Something like "Aw c'mon! Nick wouldn't slow those kids down too much."

Dusty Baker said...

Per @Dodgers, 3rd sellout in 6 games. 52,053 in the Yard, counting Saxy.

Orel said...

Dodgers PR ‏@DodgersPR 27s

Tonight's attendance: 52,053. The #Dodgers 3rd sellout in 6 games. Ravine is rocking.

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Dusty Baker said...

Hernandez goes down in his first Dodger AB.

rbnlaw said...

So, Bruno Mars' band was "lip syncing" with their instruments last night, right?

Orel said...

Todd Munson ‏@themunson 39s

@Dodgers Oh come on ; ) What could really happen when thousands of kids all try sliding head first into first?

Dusty Baker said...

Jason Grillex in to pitch and spin some tunes.

Orel said...

O GRILLI?

rbnlaw said...

Vin loves him some father/son history.

Orel said...

So it looks like AZ and COL will both be 5-1.

Cliff Beefpile said...

One HR and now they're afraid of him. Sellers Power!

Orel said...

@rbn: Not too surprising considering what happened to his son.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Grilli went to college in New Jersey? I thought I smelled something. Wash yer hair, Grilli!

Dusty Baker said...

Grilli is one greasy mophead, isn't he?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Skip. Pretend like you're still a pesky Card.

Orel said...

Uh oh, Guerrier.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Heh. Dickey.

Orel said...

One down!

Orel said...

Dickey was knocked around?

Dusty Baker said...

Not enough insurance runs for a Guerrier outing.

Dusty Baker said...

11-2 Cards now.

Heh...you said Dickey.

rbnlaw said...

Dickey was knocked in the dirt.

Thought I heard Roy Oswalt was roughed up as well.

Orel said...

"Today was the big day in San Francisco. They gave out the World Series rings, and then the Cardinals obviously gave them the piece of humble pie." —Vin

Right in their pie holes!

Steve Sax said...

Didn't make it to stick around for the Kids Run The Bases.

But we DID get a Kemp jersey! That's worth the price of stubhub-fueled admission.

rbnlaw said...

Down to 6 beers in the fridge. This one better be over soon.

Or Spank better stay away from mi casa.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Get rid of some vowels, Guerrier!

rbnlaw said...

Sax, you're a better man than I. My kids are bugging for another giveaway day.
Might do if it's a Sunday (and I can start at the Shortstop).

BTW, now have 3 pairs of those Lunarlon Nike shoes we spoke of. They make sweet, sweet love to the feet.

rbnlaw said...

C'mon Thurston!!

Dusty Baker said...

Stop rooting for the other team, Vinny!

Steve Sax said...

Pedro Alvarez evokes audible pity from Vin.

rbnlaw said...

Hope Alvarez enjoys AAA. The club, not the minor league division.

Dusty Baker said...

I Love LA!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I Love LA!!!

Orel said...

WIN

rbnlaw said...

Howell has a NASTY bender.

In other news, I was on a nasty bender in Vegas last week.

Alex said...

SWEEP!

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: I wore my lunarlons to the game today! Like walking on air. This particular pair is so worn out, it's been to four countries and three continents already.

rbnlaw said...

"Winning solves everything."

Steve Sax said...

I Love LA

Paul said...

We make sweep!

rbnlaw said...

@Sax:
Why don't we just start a blog where we talk about comfortable Nike shoes?

Seriously, best shoe they make.

Dusty Baker said...

You tha man, AGon!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Beat the Madres!

*makes party*

rbnlaw said...

A. Gon: "We gots chemistry, bishes!"

#paraphrased

rbnlaw said...

Hope the Pie Rats start getting hot tomorrow.

uhhnhhhh, hot rat pie.

Orel said...

Dodgers just one game out of the wild card!

Steve Sax said...

@rbnlaw: I do love those Nike lunar flys. AC got me hooked on them.

Dusty Baker said...

14-3 Shards over Gnats late.

rbnlaw said...

Gnats lose! Gnats lose!

And the whole gold number/lettering thing sucks ass, Frisco.

Steve Sax said...

PGT finally up!
