Post-Game 108 Thread: Early Win

DODGERS 6, CUBS 2

The Dodgers tied their franchise record with their 12th-straight road victory, and because the game was so early, I wasn't there to see it. Neither was Mark Ellis or Don Mattingly, both of whom were ejected in the fourth inning arguing a called strike three (to Mellis, not Mattingly).

But that two-run fourth inning, in which the Dodgers stretched their lead to 5-1 (thanks to a Hyun-Jin Ryu single, a Nick Punto infield single, an Adrian Gonzalez RBI single, a Yasiel Puig HBP, and a Scott Van Slyke sacrifice fly), was the dagger.

Ryu only ended up going 5.1 IP and giving up 11 H but only 2 ER, along with 0 BB and 6 Ks. J.P. Howell completed the sixth inning and Brandon League, Ronald Belisario, and even (gasp!) Carlos Marmol followed with scoreless innings each.

Tomorrow's game is @ 1p again. I'll be ready this time.

I realize I'm drunk and talking outta my ass, but some of those other Dodgers blogs have some whacked out comments. The sosg peeps keeps things simple and focused. It's always about wins, beer, and boobs. That's the way it should be!

Someone please make sure DBT gets home okay.
