Post-Game 150 Thread: Have Ryu Ever Seen The Rain

D'BACKS 2, DODGERS 1

And right about now (funk soul brother), this losing thing is getting really, really old. Hyun-Jin Ryu gave up a two-run HR to Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning, and goes another seven innings without giving up another run (8.0 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB and 4 Ks).

And yet, the Dodgers can only muster three hits after the first inning, scoring our only run through a bases-loaded Yasiel Puig walk. Not that we didn't have our chances: a ninth-inning rally starting with two straight singles (Michael Young, Skip Schumaker) was followed by a Juan Uribe bunt (wtf?) attempt (comebacker that, instead of advancing both runners, forced Young at third), followed by a weak Nick Buss grounder to first, and then a Matt Kemp PH K to end the game.

The Dodgers went 0-for-8 with RISP and had 8 LOB (AJ Ellis, 0-for-3, and Adrian Gonzalez, 0-for-4, both had 5 LOB). The Diamondbacks didn't have any RISP, and left 1.

And yet, the Diamondbacks won.

Yesterday, and days before, Sun is cold and rain is hard. I know; been that way for all my time.

View is just as shitty here from the Least Coast. Was ordering a Brooklyn '55 Pennant beer and watching at hotel bar with a random Dodger fan. We walked away equally disgusted with the bunt attempt.

@Dusty in my experience, that '55 Pennant Ale is bad luck. I have on several occasions ordered that when we have had an important game and we have come up empty every time

Look, I know Donnie has this insane bunting fetish, but if someone somehow could get him to limit it to when guys are on first and a weak hitter is at the plate, that would be swell.

YOU DON'T NEED TO BUNT A GUY IN SCORING POSITION INTO MORE SCORING POSITION.

Donnie gives bunts a bad name which is hard to do since they are already bad.

Lay down a bunt, and Donnie's to blame.

He gives bunting a bad name.

@Neeebs 11:19a: if you look really closely, you can see me saying "darling" in between your two lines of lyrics
