Game 113 Thread: August 7 @ Cardinals, 5p

"Give us back our winning streak tree!"

Ricky Nolasco (2-1, 3.54) vs. Shelby Miller (11-7, 2.89)

Shelby Miller has been in the NL Rookie of the Year conversation all season. (Or, at least before a certain Cuban megastar arrived.) After today, he'll be the answer to the trivia question, "What pitcher did the Dodgers beat to kick off their second extended road winning streak of 2013?"

Still no real word on Hanley Ramirez and his shoulder. The offense is sputtering without him, so let's hope he's back soon.

One Dodgers' streak is still alive. They have not lost a series since June 16th! A win today will bring that streak to 14 straight series.

How can Miller be thriving in Busch Stadium?! Sounds like a conflict to me.

It's ok when the injured player isn't a Dodger.

Carl drills Miller on the first pitch in the "fanny" (according to Collins) and Miller is in pain

Puig is really becoming more patient at the plate.

Fred's Brim said...

Paul said...

Fuck. Wanted at least one more run.

Paul said...

BJ Killeen said...

When u can hear the fans chant "Let's go Dodgers," you know the game is over.

Cliff Beefpile said...

One more run and we might be able to feel safe bringing in Marmol.

BJ Killeen said...

Marmot but not League

karen said...

A catcher pitching to Paco. This ought to be fun.

BJ Killeen said...

Dude, you suck

karen said...

We celebrate despite Marmol!!
