Post-Game 4 Thread: Dodgers Dealt Another Ace

DODGERS 3, PIRATES 0

Kershaw and Greinke and pray for...what the hell rhymes with Greinke? No matter, as the good news is that Guggenheim Baseball Management's $147 million investment in a true #2 (#1a?) pitcher is off to a promising start. Greinke allowed only two hits and struck out six over 92 pitches in 6 1/3 innings.

More good news? Kershaw is no longer alone as the Dodgers' home run leader, as Andre Ethier hit a solo homer off the lefty Jonathan Sanchez. Both Matt Kemp (finally!) and Adrian Gonzalez had RBI-doubles to account for the balance of the team's runs.

Messr. Kershaw goes next, so if we're going to take this series, tomorrow is the time to do it. 6PM start — be here!

Sounds good. Or, at least better.

Nice PGT Orel! Thank you

I liked it, too. Nice counter-balance to a rat/pie.

I'm pretty sure Spanky rhymes with Greinke.

Steve Sax said...

"Rhymes with Greinke" seems to be a good name for a band.

Or a blog.

Up until Andre, our best hitters were our pitchers! Great game to watch. We got some great photos, too! Will send soon. And I got Steve Yeager and Davy Lopes on my hat as well! Excellent night.

Oh my God! Why don't you just start a blog about words that rhyme with Greinke and talk about that stuff there!?

Dusty Baker said...

Greinke and Spanky, together again! Love it.

Dusty Baker said...

Anyone headed to the Yard tonight? The Dustettes and I will be there.

Spank said...

Sorry,holmes. I'll be grilling robs and getting fucked up tonight.

Orel said...

Mrs. O and I will be there! No idea where we're sitting yet, as we're using tickets generously provided by Sax.

@Orel

Let's try to dry hump for an inning or something. We're on Loge. The Sax tix will probably allow you to move freely about the cabin.

Orel said...

Roger that! Got your email.
