Post-Game 125 Thread: Slack Pays

"Only Four Bottles of Cris with LeBron Last Night, Skipper!"

DODGERS 6, FISH 4

On a day when Yasiel Puig couldn't be bothered to show up to the park on time, was fined, and was left out of the starting lineup, and on a day that Capuano pitched, the Dodgers still managed to find a way to win the game. Now, to hear Donnie tell it, Puig was left out because he was slumping and was just scheduled for a breather. For whatever reason, we didn't see the big fella until the 6th inning when he was put in on a double switch. Always with a flair for the dramatic, Puig took the first pitch he saw to lead off the 8th inning out of the Yard to left center, breaking a 4-4 tie. Dodgers added one more in the 9th for insurance to preserve the win. Chris Withrow got the win in relief and Kenley Jansen marked his 20th save.

The four-game series is tied at 1 apiece now, with Kershaw and Greinke going the final two games in Miami. The Dbags won tonight but with a Dodgers win, stay 7.5 games back with only 37 to play.

Yeah, but what did you think about the victory?

Puig still irritates me.
It's like when the Kings traded for Dave Tiger Williams. Suddenly he was our "asshole."

Sunday and Monday, no "Gotta keep pitching" in the GT: Losses.

Yesterday, I threw one in there when everyone started blaming FB: Win.

Gotta keep stitching...together wins.
