Game 43 Thread: May 16 @ D'backs, 6:40p

Zack Greinke (6-1, 2.38) vs. Wade Miley (3-3, 4.82).

"Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?" That's Indiana Jones' lament, anyway. For the Dodgers, it's more like, "Snakes! Why can't there be more Snakes?" The Dodgers are 3-7 against the Giants, 1-2 against the Rockies and 2-1 against the Padres. But they're 7-1 against the Diamondbacks, who are mired in last place and don't we just feel horrible about that.

Fred's Brim said...

Grank Ks Goldschmidt and Montero after a 1-out single

Grank grounds into a FC

Fred's Brim said...

Pollock kills us

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Pollock is a Maxi Sirloin Burger

Fred's Brim said...

Owings pops up an awful, Dodger-like bunt to Uribe

Fred's Brim said...

another Venezuelan up to kill us

Fred's Brim said...

I bet a rookie Venezuelan pitcher would toss a perfect game against us

Fred's Brim said...

wow, Grank gets the double play on the speedy Enciarte, 4-6-3

Fred's Brim said...

POOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEG!!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Time to turn on the Kings game—WHAAAAAA?

Fred's Brim said...

lots of hitters talking to pitchers in the dugout tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Great inning from Greinke

Orel said...

KKKKK

I hope Zanky can get into the seventh.

Orel said...

Orel said...

Ducks score. 5-2 Kings.

Fred's Brim said...

Great inning from Greinke

Orel said...

SVSHR!

Orel said...

"Great inning from Greinke." Copy, paste.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's Go Kings!

Fred's Brim said...

Dee drills one but right at Goldschmidt

Orel said...

Molly Knight points out the Dodgers have a $36 million left-field platoon, neither of which starts against lefties. And so far tonight it makes sense.

Fred's Brim said...

Good inning from Greinke

Dusty Baker said...

6-2 Kings! We got this.

Orel said...

Kings lead the Dodgers 6-5!

Fred's Brim said...

Orel said...

UJTD! Ctrl-C, ctrl-V.

Orel said...

"The Kings are a tough out, man. They had all of their horses running tonight." —mixed sports metaphors on the Kings' postgame show

Fred's Brim said...

AJ with a gift walk

Dusty Baker said...

COMMAND-C, Orel. Put the PC down already.

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke left in to hit, which is smart because he is still better than any of our bench hitters

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke clears himself

Fred's Brim said...

Dee on after Owings sails the ball into the 40th row

Fred's Brim said...

and Puig immediately knocks him in with a double into the corner

Fred's Brim said...

and he Ks Goldschmidt for the first out

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like I need to say this and I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but: God damn I wish I could watch these games.

Fred's Brim said...

AGon doesn't toss the ball to Wilson at first and Montero is called safe, still looks like AG beat him, barely

Fred's Brim said...

and the call is reversed

Fred's Brim said...

Be there in about 8 hours. A quick hour intercontinental flight and a 7-hour drive from La Guardia to your crib.
