Post-Game 118 Thread: +18 (Over .500)

DODGERS 4, METS 2

The Dodgers just keep on winning, taking their sixth in a row by beating the Mets in the first of a three-game series. Though Dodger starter Ricky Nolasco had a rough second inning, allowing four straight singles to start off the inning (two runs) before settling down for a K and a GIDP, Nolasco settled down to last 6.1 IP with 7 H and only those 2 ER (2 BB, 2 Ks).

Meanwhile, the Dodgers bided their time until breaking out in the sixth inning, opening up with three straight singles of their own (Carl Crawford, Mark Ellis, and Adrian Gonzalez--just like they drew it up), and helped by a throwing error by Mets CF Juan Lagares on a ball that skipped past third base and into the Dodgers dugout. Yasiel Puig hit a sacrifice fly to give the Dodgers the 3-2 lead. And an inning later, Nick Punto launched his second HR of the year into right for a 4-2 lead.

Ronald Belisario and Paco Rodriguez picked up holds, and Kenley Jansen got a 1.1 IP save. 18 games over .500, the Dodgers are definitely NOT unbeatable. But man, they do look pretty damn good lately.

21-3 since the all-star break. 21-3. Just say it over and over 21-3. It so fuckin ridiculous and beautiful and unreal and scary and 21-3. Best Dodger run of my life and it feels surreal.

Of course 22-3 sounds better.
