Game 132 Thread: Aug. 27 vs. Cubs, 7p

The only thing the Cubs will have to cheer tonight.

Clayton Kershaw (13-7, 1.72) vs. Travis Wood (7-10, 3.22).

After leaving Zack Greinke in yesterday's game for 122 pitches and the incomplete game victory, will Don Mattingly allow Kershaw to talk him into trying to go the distance tonight? With Matt Harvey's unfortunate injury fresh in our minds, it's not unreasonable to worry about arm health as the playoffs loom. But Mattingly's gotten us this far, so trust the skipper. Magic number = 23!

Gotta keep Kershawing.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Nomo, I've been gone for a long time but I've read a couple of the last few entries...do you always do that pitching thing this year?

Hideo Nomo said...

Fred's Brim was saying "Gotta keep pitching" a lot during the peak of the hot streak. Seemed to work pretty well.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Carry on, SeƱor Nomo.

Side note, jints are finding a way to give up they're 3-0 lead. It's now 3-2.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

They're?

Put down the BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kemp didn't exactly look comfortable running the bases in that clip. Get healthy, Bison!

BJ Killeen said...

That's 2 KC

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Wow

spank said...

WGN just won my respect by playing old school Los Angeles punk band X before they went on break.

Steve Sax said...

Clay's gonna need a lot more run support tonight.

0-0 through 1

spank said...

Nice catch and hustle Dre!

Steve Sax said...

SD was up 3-0 on AZ in the first, but now it's tied in the third at 3

SF up 4-2 on Colorado

Steve Sax said...

1-2-3 in the second inning for Kershaw. 39 pitches ain't great however

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Make that 5-2 jints over Rox and Belt is 4-4

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single for nancy Travis

0-0 in the third

spank said...

i hate Dinner.

spank said...

nice K, kid K

1-0 cubbies

Steve Sax said...

That run doesn't count as earned because of AJ's catcher interference, right?

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Ethier is running like he's 4 yrs younger.

spank said...

Puig showing some restraint there on the base paths. interesting.

spank said...

we need some runs,mofos!

spank said...

Hanram with a single. do something Mehllis.

spank said...

high drive into deep centerfield. caught.

spank said...

if i was sitting in the outfield pavillion area i would throw my Rick Monday bobblehead onto the field just cause.

spank said...

Urine K's. Ajellis walk involuntarily.

Rancho KidKeindo!

sanfrandodgerfan said...

wow, spank.

Monday was a double hero to me a little guy. Dodgers and A's?

spank said...

just get wood on the ball. let the devil do the rest.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

BLARGH!!!

spank said...

i respect that,sanfrandodger. i just don't like the guy.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

He's a tool. We thought he was Joe Friggin Cool then though.

Hideo Nomo said...

The Monday bobblehead is very realistic. It doesn't tell you the score of the game.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

sjmerc has "Giants Extra." Their Splash or Dodger Thoughts.

Someone just posted this at that site, kinda cool:

Respect for the Vinster

BJ Killeen said...

Geez. We better start doing some real hitting soon or we are gonna have a bad September

spank said...

Brian Wilson's beard reminds me of those Madonna Playboy pics back in the day. i have no idea why.

Steve Sax said...

Yeah, but no one can take away our July and August.

Take that!

Steve Sax said...

Giants won.

hunter Pence hit a moonball in the 5-3 victory over the Rockies, and Jon Miller just about lost his shit on the call. It happened to be the longest MLB HR of the year (albeit in Coors), but jeez man. Calm down.

Steve Sax said...

Zona's up 6-3, B6

Steve Sax said...

Great, I'm scrolling back through GameDay: please don't tell me that deflection hurt Clayton.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Better Miller than the worst guy up here, Flemming. I got to hear about that "longest shot all season" every other ining.

FRICK! Pull him now

spank said...

damn. 2-0 cubbies

Steve Sax said...

Shit. Castro single with two out makes it 2-0 Cubs. Boo.

sanfrandodgerfan said...

Ya, I'm def a jinx for Good Guys when I'm here...sfdf is outtie folks-enjoy and Let's Go Blues!

Steve Sax said...

And Kershaw's night is done. 107 pitches, 1 ER: ERA back up to 1.72.

Paul said...

Nice job Willie big beards.

Steve Sax said...

Wilson does the job in the sixth.

2-0 Cubs.

Steve Sax said...

Arizona extends its lead to 7-3, through 6

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Ok. Rally time.

Steve Sax said...

Hanley, trying to get something started here

Steve Sax said...

Hanley to second on the Wood throwing error (pickoff).

2-run HR here, Andre!

spank said...

come on Dre!

spank said...

goddamnsonofabitch that sucked,Dre.

Paul said...

Get a hit Ubes.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Uribe! 2-1, bishes!

spank said...

Urine comes through.

Paul said...

Uuuuuuuuribe!

Steve Sax said...

Uribe gets us on the board (after Andre pops out to third)!

2-1 Cubs.

BJ Killeen said...

How can you not think Donnie is an idiot. He pulls one of the only guys who's hitting tonight.

spank said...

Looks like Dinner pulled something while running. Maybe a hammy or some pork.

Steve Sax said...

why are the cubs hitting all of our pitchers with comebackers?

spank said...

bases loaded for the cubbies adfter that HBP. this will be a fucking shame.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Boooooooooooooooooooo!

Paul said...

Well looks like we are cooling down a bit.

spank said...

i just puked at the sight of that red LA cap that some mutt is wearing.

spank said...

Belli is trying to paint the corners but the ump is brushing him off.

Steve Sax said...

Cubs PH Brian Bogusevic GIDPs, but Dinner scores so it's 3-1 Cubs

spank said...

3-1 cubbies. i haven't given up hope.

Steve Sax said...

IBB the .231 hitter (Rizzo) to get to the .200 hitter (Gillespie). And it works.

3-1 Cubs at the stretch.

Steve Sax said...

SD actually threatening in the top of the eighth, still down 7-3 to AZ

spank said...

that inning was weak

Steve Sax said...

Someone needs to run down on that field and burn the Rick Monday flag-saving bobblehead. Go meta, people!!!

spank said...

Come on WGN. Win me back. play some Black Flag or Suicidal Tendencies. Fuck The Doors and Everclear.

Steve Sax said...

AZ 7, SD 6

spank said...

i heart Saxy

Steve Sax said...

Padres have tied it up at 7

spank said...

A Gone...down swinging

spank said...

Mehliss should get released from the team just for having that hideous at bat music

spank said...

here we go .mehliss HBP. Dre up two on two out. Do it,holmes!

Paul said...

Come on Dre. You got your righty.

Paul said...

Good job Dre!

spank said...

yes,Dre! hanram scores on a dre single.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier delivers. 3-2.

Hanely with a nice one-out single, then Mark Ellis HBP, and then Ethier. Men on first and second, one out.

Paul said...

Skip up. Meh

spank said...

come on,skipsch!

Paul said...

God Skip sucks.

spank said...

you suck,Russell Martin!

Steve Sax said...

Schumaker serves up a tailor made 6-3 GIDP.

3-2 going to the ninth.

Steve Sax said...

Worse: Arizona takes a 9-7 lead on SD.

spank said...

Fucking Dinner. this guy is killing me.bean the mtherfucker.

spank said...

a strikeout is good though

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Punto.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Why the fuck is Uribe out again, Donnie?

Paul said...

Filthy Paco.

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow, SD tied it in the top of the ninth, it's 9-9

Steve Sax said...

Bottom of the ninth, down 3-2

Paul said...

Great Punto.

Paul said...

Fuck our bench sucks.

Come on Crawford just get on.

Paul said...

2-0. Halfway there.

spank said...

Paul said...

One more ball.

spank said...

Paul said...

Come On Puig!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Alright, Puig! Let's do this, kid!

spank said...

goddamnmotherfuckingshit

Paul said...

Damn that was his pitch.

Paul said...

Coolin down a bit.

spank said...

we got enough of a lead in the division to not worry about a little cool off. a slump though......

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Poop!

spank said...

these unforgettable classics,including Michael Bolton etc, the tube is pimping me at the moment are quite forgettable actually.
