Post-Game 89 Thread: Oh Ricky, You're So Fine

I confess this song is indeed horrible, but I'm desperate to get this done quickly.

DODGERS 6, DIAMONDBACKS 1

Ricky Nolasco had an outstanding Dodger debut: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB and 5 Ks...and two hits (including a double) as well as a run scored and an RBI.

Ian Kennedy was indeed the weak sauce we predicted: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 3 BB and 2 Ks. A throwing error from catcher Miguel Montero in the fourth, plus a fielding error by center fielder Adam Eaton, didn't help Kennedy any (both events led to Dodgers runs), but that's what you get when you plunk Hanley Ramirez in the first inning (Ramirez went 0-for-4 and ended his hitting streak at 19).

Carl Crawford got a hit (a bunt sacrifice-turned-single) and scored two runs.Yasiel Puig went 1-for-3 with 2 walks, one of which was sweet as he clearly wasn't biting on the bait Kennedy had left out there. Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with 3 RBI. Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a run scored; Skip Schumaker upped Ethier by going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI. Dodgers pull to 2.5 GB of the first-place Diamondbacks, and one game below .500.

I was still looking for an image on the internet that had a tennis scoreboard showing 6-1, 6-1.

Steve Sax said...

Padres beat Rockies, 2-1

Mets and Giants knotted at 5 in the top of the eighth. Wild pitch by Jeremy Affeldt allows Omar Quintanilla to advance to third and Juan Lagares to advance to second. One out.

Eric Young walks. Dan Murphy coming to the plate for the Mets.

Coaching visit to mound.

Mets score

Steve Sax said...

Murphy sac flies to Blanco in center, Quintanilla scores. Lagares moves to third. Mets 6, Giants 5.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, you Mutts!

MR.F said...

Rancho Ardiendo for Marlon Byrd. 6-5 Mets.

Dusty Baker said...

Affeldt getting squeezed. First three pitches called balls but could have easily been strikes. I like it.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty, this is the closest I could find.

Steve Sax said...

In comes Jake Dunning. He's been pretty nails for the Giants: 1.35 ERA with 13.1 IP under his belt (11 Ks).

Steve Sax said...

First pitch swinging, Byrd in play, run(s)

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I'd actually downloaded an app that allows one to keep tennis score, so I was going to program it to show the set scores and then take a screenshot of that. That's as far as I got. #AforEffort

BYRD GRAND SLAM

Steve Sax said...

Marlon Byrd takes the first pitch, a 78 MPH slider down the middle, and he hits a GRAND SLAM TO LEFT

Mets 10, Giants 5

Dusty Baker said...

Granny!

Jon Miller on KNBR radio: "that one just sat there at the belt, as if pleading to be annihilated."

Dusty Baker said...

Dagger.

@Dusty 10:11p:

Hey, don't worry about it. Li Na me. When you're not strong. I'll be your friend.

Dusty Baker said...

Crown Vic just went Yard for Boston to give them a 9-7 lead in Seattle.

Dusty Baker said...

You outdid yourself that time, Sax. Well played.

Paul said...

Giants are losing again? That's a shame.

Dusty Baker said...

Dylan Hernandrz has Belli saying the feud w Dbags isn't over bc he hit Montero accidentally, so revenge is still coming. Nice!

Hideo Nomo said...

It took forever to figure out why Dad retweeted my stupid CP GREESHIN lineup joke, then I remembered what he used to endorse.

Well played all around.

Hideo Nomo said...

Uh, GREESHN, that is.

Dusty Baker said...

BTW I was mistaken about Milano tweeting re the Vin transcript. Someone had Tweeted it and included her in a way that looked like she had Tweeted it, at first glance.

Dusty Baker said...

Pence w a weird hit and a throwing error to extend bottom 9th.

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats score on a single. 10-6 Mutts.

Dusty Baker said...

Game over, Mutts win.

Steve Sax said...

And it's over, Mets win 10-6

Dusty Baker said...

Goooooooood niiiight everybody.

Steve Sax said...

This would have the Giants and Padres tied for last, if I'm not mistaken. 6.5 GB Arizona.

Steve Sax said...

Back to Candy Crush

Dusty Baker said...

Ps- And the Angels lost to the Cubs 7-2.

Spank said...

Hi.

MR.F said...

Hello.

Steve Sax said...

Is it me you're looking for?

Spank said...

I can see it in your eyes

Steve Sax said...

I can see it in your smile

Steve Sax said...

Big win tonight. Guarantees another series win.

Fell asleep in the 8th. All my dreams came true. And I heard Beli nailed a D'bag. Glorious night!
