Game 60 Thread: June 3 vs. White Sox, 7p

Dan Haren (5-3, 3.28) vs. Hector Noesi (0-4, 5.83).

Dan Haren went to Pepperdine University over in Malibu. But what I don't understand is how Hector, who was raised in the Dominican Republic, has a problem with one of our city's big colleges. But "Noesi" it is, and I'm sure that's not going to appeal to the home crowd tonight, watching Noesi's first career start against the Dodgers.

Sure, Haren may be a little shaky of late, going 1-3 with a 4.35 ERA since his 4-0 start this year. But Noesi is worse: he hasn't had a win in his last 19 starts (or 40 appearances), going 0-14 with a 5.87 ERA since May 2012. As the White Sox likely won't be giving away the game again tonight, we had better hope that the bats show up tonight...along with the mob of angry Trojan fans.

If we can get Turner or Uribe in the 7-hole, and Ellis back from the DL, we have a shot at DAY HAM JAZ (when Greinke pitches)

Steve Sax said...

Giants down 4-3 in Cincy, through 4 innings

Steve Sax said...

Wish I knew how to embed this, but here's a nice video of the top 5 moments from Puig's first year (ESPN).

Dayham come and me wan' go home

karen said...

Happy 1 year anniversary Yasiel!! Looking forward to the bat flip tonight.

Hollandsworth said...

Well, fuck.

Steve Sax said...

Let's go HanRam, the H of dayHam

karen said...

Yasiel with a solid double to celebrate his anniversary.

Steve Sax said...

At least Dee had a good AB. Concerned that his BA has plummeted to .279 however.

Steve Sax said...

Anyone else notice mlb.com gameday is way different? Much bigger boxes on the left and right, much bigger font size?

Steve Sax said...

Han Ram works the walk, so it's up to A-Gon

Steve Sax said...

And of course, we choke the opportunity. 2-0 through 1

Steve Sax said...

oh, and the score bar for mlb.com gameday is now on the bottom

karen said...

Reds beat gnats 8-3.

Steve Sax said...

SF lost 8-3. Giants made four errors; Bailey beats Timmah (all 8 ER attributed to Timmah, tied for the worst in his career).

Steve Sax said...

@karen: wow, that was eerie

Steve Sax said...

Kempy with a leadoff single

Steve Sax said...

Figgins walks, then Droopy basically sacrifices both men over (more or less). Here's Haren.

karen said...

@Saxy...You know what they say about great minds...

Steve Sax said...

Pretty smooth of Haren to earn a walk. Nice job Dee to sac in one run.

Come on, Ethier!

Steve Sax said...

Not exactly sure why Dee has been so first-pitch-swinging of late

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Ethier (.253)

Steve Sax said...

2-1 Sox through two

Dodgers wasting opportunities all over the place, now 0-for-3 with RISP

Steve Sax said...

Nobody is on the Noesi GT

karen said...

Oh geez. I left the room for just a minute and its now 3-1. Shit.

karen said...

Hello Kitty Bobblehead night at DS. I just don't get that whole Hello Kitty thing. I guess that makes me officially old. Or not weird.

spank said...

4-1 Sox.

karen said...

Epale Spanky!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dodger game on WGN! Though it does mean listening to the biggest homers in baseball, outside of Boston anyway.

karen said...

Good find CliffB!

Cliff Beefpile said...

How badly do I wanna see a Dodger game? I'll listen to Hawk Harrelson. Come on, Figgins, get something started!

spank said...

Epale Karen!

spank said...

Weak sauce,Kemp.

spank said...

I agree,Beefpile. #WGN announcers

Steve Sax said...

Dee Gordon, now 0-for-4 (with an RBI). Brutal.

Steve Sax said...

Including this game, in Dee Gordon's last twenty games, he has only had one multi-hit game. His BA has fallen from .331 to .275.

Steve Sax said...

And here we go, down to the ninth inning, down 4-1, and 2-3-4 batters up.

karen said...

I hope Beli pitches for the Sox like he pitched for us. If so, this game ain't over.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Ethier.

karen said...

Beli pitching like Cy Young.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, shit. Let's get 'em tomorrow. Night all.

karen said...

3 routine grounders to 2nd. 7 pitches for Beli. WTF!

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.
