Post-Game 160 Thread: Boobies and Ice Cream

DODGERS 11, ROCKIES ZIP

We were way overdue to administer an ass-whuppin, and boy did we administer one. Boobies and ice cream, indeed, thanks to the offense and pitching.

Clayton Kershaw was on from the first pitch. He struck out eight and walked none. It was one of those outings where he seemed to be able to get a batter out at will, as if he were playing a video game and had the strike-this-mofo-out cheat code. Kid K moves to 16-9 with a - are you sitting down - 1.83 ERA on the season. He is the first Dodger to do so since the revered Sandy Koufax in 1966. And he became the first pitcher to lead the majors in ERA in three consecutive seasons since Greg Maddux did so from '93-'95. That's some good company, Clay.

On the offensive side, well, there was a notable lack of noffense. The bats came alive from the first inning, when the Dodgers put up four on Colorado rookie Collin McHugh thanks to a two-run double by Uribe and RBI singles by both Ellis boys. Crawford got off the home run schneid with a three-run homer in the fourth. A-Gone notably got his 100th RBI of the season with a solo shot to his favorite spot past the right field foul pole. AJEllis also got in on the red hot HR action with a two-run homer in the fifth. Honestly the Dodgers could have added several more runs, but were classy enough not to run up the score in several situations where they could have easily crossed the plate.

The only negative to the night was that Puig fouled a ball off what appeared to be his calf and had to leave the game. Subsequent x-rays were negative, thankfully, but he is likely very sore. Mattingly later noted that Puig would be day to day. But, aren't we all, Vinny?

Why the fuck are all these games on MLB AtBat "jaguar game of the day" when I'm blacked out of TV anyway? Fuck jaguar

Jaguar can eat a bucket of dicks.

This Pie rats v Reds game is a cracker!

Steve Sax said...

Aybar had a chance to tie the game there but grounded out in a long AB. 7-4 Tex still

Dusty Baker said...

Pie Rats take 4-3 lead on Neil Walker's second HR of the day.

Dusty Baker said...

Marlon Byrd hits the fifth HR of the day off Bronson Arroyo to make it 6-3 Pie Rats.

Dusty Baker said...

Andrew Lambo sighting.

Dusty Baker said...

And he promptly hits a monster pinch hit HR. He drove that thing a country mile.

Dusty Baker said...

His first career HR.

Dusty Baker said...

And Byrd dry humps him in the dugout.

Steve Sax said...

Great American Ballpark has a LOT of empty seats there. Nice job, Cincy.

Pittsburgh up 7-3

Steve Sax said...

Texas wins

Steve Sax said...

Rays are losing 7-1 btw. They could be tied for the second wild card spot

Dusty Baker said...

Free baseball, hopefully!

Dusty Baker said...

Good point, Sax. Lame for CIncy not to fill 'er up.

Steve Sax said...

Pirates won, they host the wild card game

Giants up 3-1 on the Padres. This would slip SD behind them in the standings, and ahead of them in the draft.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck the Gnats!

Wash yer hair, Timmeh!

I love the deliciousness of soft serve ice cream.

Padres now up 5-3 in the sixth. Jesus H Guzman, what the hell are you doing (besides homering)?!
