Post-Game 104 Thread: Wild Horses Edition

Let's be short and to the point:

1) Their pitchers were good.
2) Our pitchers were good.
3) Our batters struck out a lot (20 times).
4) Extra innings.
5) Puig!

Puig struck out three times and was easily caught stealing earlier, but per Vin, right there in the 11th, "One swing corrected everything." That one swing was a walkoff solo HR that was a no-doubter. As Vin also went on to say, "The Wild Horse has led the team to the barn!"

Dodgers take the series 3-1 and, with a D'bags loss, move 2.5 games ahead in first place. Make party, party people!

UPDATE:

6) Gnats 10 games back

Wow. Puig's bat flip was pretty sweet too.

Monday's Puig lesson: Take your helmet off when rounding third after a walk-off HR.

Capuano has athlete's foot, apparently, based on a sighting of Tinactic behind him during this interview.

Dusty Baker said...

Cap just said he saw Puig hit one out of DS during BP. Hopefully we'll see that happen in a game some day. #Piazza

@Paul

We were half right.

Mike Scioscia would have 100 wins by now or not.

I like that post update, Dustometer!

Nice PGT!

How the hell did League pitch two scoreless innings?

STL vs ATL on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball. hateHateHATE everyone!

Don't let the baseball stop, Baseball Gods!

Fred's Brim said...

This run is just crazy.

Puig is striking out three times and getting picked off first but hits the GWHR.

Skip Schumaker is hitting HRs.

Brandon League is pitching scoreless innings.

Ronald Belisario has movement on his pitches again.

What is going ON here?

@Sax

I took out a double mortgage on deals with the devil.

Cliff Beefpile said...

We've built up a lot of Karmic debt in the last 25 years. Looks like it's finally paying off.

BJ Killeen said...

And they gave League the win...that's three for him...it's like giving an Iron Chef award to the guy who serves it to the diners...

I, for one, welcome our new Puig overlord.

DB and I were out there defending The Puigslide from former MLB douches last night.

Don't see what all the hate is about. The bottom line is, and shall always be, baseball is a fucking GAME! Guys cheating by using PED's "dishonor the GAME." A kid sliding into home after a GWHR showing excitement and enthusiasm?

Yeah, exactly. Who the fuck is Greg Swindell?

I know. I felt the disturbance in the force from way over here.

I don't understand the compulsion to sort all professional athletes into either paragons of virtue or absolute villains.

But then again, I'm just a simple caveman...
