Post-Game 80 Thread: HANLEY SMASH!


"UPDATE THAT SCORE!!!"

DODGERS 4, PHILLIES 3

Hanley Ramirez is a destroyer of baseballs. In the first inning, he hit an absolute BOMB of a three-run home run that landed on the Dodgers Live anchor desk in center field.

Unfortunately, that was it for the Dodgers offense for the next eight innings, as they couldn't string anything together (including blowing a bases-loaded, no-outs situation) to support Hyun-Jin Ryu. Thankfully, Ryu was more than solid, only surrendering two home runs to Chase Utley over his seven innings of work. Paco, Belli, and J.P. Howell combined for a scoreless eighth.

Then, in the top of the ninth, some stuff happened, but it's all forgotten, because...

In the bottom of the ninth, Hanley got his third hit of the night, a supersonic jet single. Kemp struck out looking in a terrible at bat. Ethier walked. Finally, A.J. Ellis, who GIDP'd in that aforementioned bases-loaded situation, stroked a walk-off single to right to score Hanley. (See Hanley's victory roar above.)

Dodgers move to five back in the division no one wants to win, and have a chance to take the series from the Phils tomorrow.

HANLEY!

Kemps throw was almost as bad as his at bats.

Yeah, we're home now and re-watching the game, too. Now I can FF through the bad stuff.

I feel drained after this one. Mostly because of all the dry humping that Orel and I did together.

Orel said...

Man I'm sore.

That's what Nomo's Giants said.

I like how Gnomes passed over the top of the ninth, including Jansen's shakiness and Kemp's waaaaaaaay offline throw. I was watching that inning and groaning.

@Sax

That stuff never happened. Those aren't the bad plays you're looking for.
