Game 107 Thread: Aug. 1 @ Cubs, 5p

Chicago, Dog.

Ricky Nolasco (6-9, 3.72) vs. Chris Rusin (1-0, 2.93).

As we head into August, let's look at a monthly breakdown of the Dodgers' record this year:

  • April: 13-13
  • May: 10-17
  • June: 15-13
  • July: 19-6

Gotta love that trend, but how can the Dodgers possibly keep it up? Well, by beating up on teams like the Cubs, for starters. The Cubs promoted Rusin from their AAA club after trading Scott Feldman and Matt Garza, and they won his starts against the Diamondbacks and Giants.

If the Dodgers are to avoid following suit, their bats will have to re-emerge from their recent hibernation, having scored a mere 12 runs over the last six-game homestand. Maybe road cooking is just what the Dodgers need to get back on track.

Important game. After last night's let down and a pretty good lefty taking the hill on Friday for the Cubs, we don't want to be staring at Cap to break a losing streak.

Fred's Brim said...

well said, Pauly. Let's start another win streak tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Ricky, we need another good one from you

Cliff Beefpile said...

An ominous start.

BJ Killeen said...

Does Ricky have a mohawk? Does he go to Puig's barber?

Fred's Brim said...

I can't believe we extended this inning for them.

Fred's Brim said...

Paul said...

Nasty pitch.

BJ Killeen said...

I love that Donnie told Puig about the brick wall behind the ivy, and that it was "undefeated."

Paul said...

Giants won. Zona down 5-0.

Spank said...

Wha happened?

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa....what a game. Listened to 3-7 in the car, then had a dinner party so couldn't contribute my masterful insight in this space. Strangely, no one seems to have suffered.

Paul said...

*suffers*

Orel said...

Wow!

Hideo Nomo said...
