Post-Game 25 Thread: Dodgers, Bullpen Overcome Dodgers' Bullpen

And this is for a winning PGT!


If Beckett's eight innings last night shocked you, then Maholm's seven innings (and two ER) tonight will put you into cardiac arrest. Even better, Kemp and AGon homered, and Hanley had an RBI and Puig two.

But this is the Dodgers, so the bullpen had to come in with their gas cans. With one out in the eighth, Withrow walked the bases loaded — then proceeded to strike out Cargo and Tulowitzki. Wilson started the ninth with a four-run lead and promptly walked his first two batters, so Donnie turned to the overworked Kenley, who allowed a run before shutting things down.

But this is the Dodgers, Part Two: No victory is without its lead linings. Hanley had to leave the game in the fourth with a bruised thumb he jammed during an AB. X-rays were negative, and he was scheduled to get the day off tomorrow anyway.

Hope Hanley gets well!

Hey, maybe I should write a song about this...
