Post-Game 70 Thread: Dodgers Earn 1-7 Split


As surprising as it might seem after Game 1, the Dodgers ended up with a rare split of their 1p and 7p games in the Bronx today, thanks to an unusually gritty performance by Chris Capuano (6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 Ks), coupled with two solid innings of relief from Chris Withrow and a rare offensive breakout at the hands of many. Our first five slots in the lineup:

  • Skip Schumaker, 2-for-5 with a run;
  • Yasiel Puig, 2-for-4 (including a solo HR) with 3 runs and a RBI;
  • Adrian Gonzalez, 3-for-5 (including a double) with a run and a RBI;
  • Hanley Ramirez, 2-for-4 with a run and 2 RBI;
  • Andre Ethier, 2-for-4 (including a double) with a RBI.

Hard to argue with that output, especially juxtaposed against a Yankees team which scattered only three hits all game.

Speaking of asymmetrical leaves, Brandon League didn't screw things up in the ninth. Luis Cruz and Tim Federowicz each went 0-for-4, the latter leaving 5 on base.

And, the Dodgers didn't have any errors! Imagine that! Off to Petco Park for a night game tomorrow. Good night, everybody!

I think we engorged everyone with too much content today, boys.

Even Juan Uribe is full.

Just one thin little mint, Misseur Uribe?

A day when the Dodgers win and Yankmees lose is a good day. But when the Yankmees lose to the Dodgers, it's even better!

P.s. I'll take a 1-7 split anyday over the 7-10.
