Post-Game 125 Thread: Slack Pays

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


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?

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.
