Post-Game 103 Thread: Skip To My Ryu

DODGERS 4, REDS 1

For the second time in a week, Skip Schumaker (who wasn't supposed to be here today...Carl Crawford was sick) launched a monster home run. This one was a two-run shot to dead center off Bronson Arroyo, putting the Dodgers up 3-1. He also scored a run on an Adrian Gonzalez single in the seventh.

Ryu was a one-man show too. He went seven strong and only allowed one run (a Jay Bruce solo shot...Stop pitching to him!!!). Then, after a Chris Heisey triple in the third, Ryu retired the next thirteen batters in a row. In fact, no other Reds even reached base the rest of the game, thanks to two strong bullpen innings from Belisario, Paco, and Kenley.

Dodgers move to 1.5 games in first, after Arizona got pummeled by San Diego, and go for the series win tomorrow with Chris Capuano on the mound.

Giants are suffering. I love it.

I was so happy right up until I read that Capuano part at the end.

I was going to say "some other pitcher," but there's no point in sugar-coating it.

Just watched the CHC-SF highlights. You gotta watch it. cubs win 1-0, but the wasted opportunities by the giants are incredible.

Paul said...

Hey just when we give up on Cap he pulls out a gem. Maybe tomorrow he can put in 7.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: 7 pitches?

Paul said...

7 outs. I'm an optimist these days.
