Game 39 Thread: May 11 vs. Giants, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 0.66) vs. Tim Hudson (4-2, 1.99).

Hudson died, in our Ravine
The Giants' starter fled the scene
And Dodger bats told haters that
the season's turned again

Two days ago, Yasiel Puig stared down Madison Bumgarner during a home-run trot, and suddenly the Dodgers (who dropped that game) showed some uncharacteristic fire in the next game, with a surprising comeback victory at home. Was Puig's grimace the turning point? Or, said differently, can we expect more-scowl on the Hudson today?

(Another year in purgatory, I know.)

Kershaw returns for his second start since returning from the DL. Hudson, who went deep in each of his last two starts, is 0-3 with a 5.56 ERA in his last six starts at Dodger Stadium. Let's hope that, this Mother's Day, that it will be Dodger fans who come through in (or with) the clutch.

Dusty Baker said...

Where the hell is everyone? Dry humping Neeebs' mom?

Steve Sax said...

I'm here. Dodgers aren't. 1-0 SF through 3.

karen said...

I'm still here Dust, but will be leaving in awhile to go to my moms. I thought maybe I was by myself here.

Steve Sax said...

Three-pitch K on Hicks to end the fourth. Nice.

Paul said...

BOOOOOOO!

Greg said...

I think I see Andre giving the finger to Mattingly.

Orel said...

That's a double-double for Andre.

Paul said...

With a side of meh.

Steve Sax said...

And that is why ethier doesn't play every day (thrown out at home)

Paul said...

Actually he seems to fit in with the rest of the starters.

Dusty Baker said...

Lil' rally her in the sixth. I'll take it.

Dusty Baker said...

^ here

BJ Killeen said...

Coaching error. How can you send Agon knowing he can't run? Frustrating

Steve Sax said...

Why would you send Adrian Gonzalez is the slowest person on the team

Nice job Lorenzo Bundy

Paul said...

That didn't last long.

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw gets yanked for PH Chone Figgins, who lasts all of twenty seconds in a weak-ass AB

Steve Sax said...

The Giants have six players at or below the mendoza line in today's lineup.

And we can't get 'em out.

Steve Sax said...

Withrow, just like the rest of the bullpen, is thoroughly unreliable.

Steve Sax said...

Way to go, Kemp.

Steve Sax said...

Turner and Droopy Terra, it's up to you

Two on, one out, B8

Steve Sax said...

Crawford replaces Droopy...

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey Mom, the Dodgers got you a choker since they ran out of clutch.

Fred's Brim said...

what a goddamn waste

Fred's Brim said...

hurry up and get out, I need to call my mom

Fred's Brim said...

We should have played some of the old timers today

Fred's Brim said...

Stop fucking teasing us, the homer in the 9th was plenty. My balls are plenty blue

Steve Sax said...

Miguel Olivo will save us all. Just watch.

Fred's Brim said...

dicks

Steve Sax said...

that was about as horrible a loss as we could have imagined. I can't imagine it getting any worse than this.

But it probably will.

PGT up!

Ok, I don't hate the Dodgers, but I sure don't enjoy going to game after game and getting gut-punched.
