Game 66 Thread: June 10 @ Reds, 4p

Josh Beckett (3-3, 2.57) vs. Mike Leake (3-5, 3.29).

Well, this is weird. In each of the first four games of this seven-game road trip, the Dodgers have scored at least five runs, and here's guessing Beckett will need at least that many to earn a win today. Scott Van Slyke went into Chewbacca Mode yesterday, but don't expect him to start against the right-handed Leake. Also, is Dee Gordon's hip healthy enough for him to start? Better do a hip check!

The tarp is on the field. We're looking at a probable delay to the start.

Steve Sax said...

Are the ducks back?

Fred's Brim said...

Bill Shaikin saying the bad weather scheduled for tomorrow is the only reason we may wait this one out, otherwise they'd go straight to the double header for tomorrow

karen said...

Still raining. Umps to meet at 8:15 EST to make possible decision.

Steve Sax said...

Detroit @ CWS already postponed.

Fred's Brim said...

so maybe a 9:15/6:15 start?

Steve Sax said...

7p PT: Nationals @ Giants: Fister (4-1, 3.19 ERA) vs. Bumgarner (8-3, 2.68 ERA

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy is licking his chops thinking about writing a Fist and Bum related game thread

Steve Sax said...

@FB: Wow, I hadn't thought of that! Oh my god, why don't I start a Giants blog and report the news on that blog?

Steve Sax said...

there's no hockey game tonight, right? but there's a hoops game?

karen said...

SNLA reporting game to resume at 6:00 PST with first pitch at 6:15.

Good call, FB!!

Fred's Brim said...

spank said...

thanks Karen. it's been so long i've forgotten how much i hate my laptop.

well shit. i go get a beer and it's already two outs.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOO

karen said...

Beckett looked clean shaven and with a haircut.

karen said...

No, I was wrong. He's still got the hair thing on his chin going on.

karen said...

Spank...Do you have TWC now?

spank said...

Nope. still watching on the Dish. Todays and Thursdays game are televised on MLB TV.

karen said...

Dre doubles in Agon. 1-0 with 1 out in the second.

spank said...

dre!

spank said...

Where is Cincinatti anyways? Ohio? J/k

karen said...

Spanky...Does it matter???

spank said...

oh shit. Dee fouled a ball of his face.

spank said...

hit the bill of his helmet. then he flies out.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Earvin Magic Johnson ‏@MagicJohnson 9m

We won the series against The Rockies. A good win against the Reds yesterday as we try to win this series as well! #Dodgers

spank said...

first time i see the outfield with kemp in left dre in center and puig in right. it's as if an earthquake hit and the outfield shifted to the left.

spank said...

i wonder if Sterling follows Magic on the twitters.

spank said...

puig double. that should have been a single me thinks.

karen said...

Agon looked really bad on that strike 3 swing.

karen said...

Matty strikes out for the second time with RISP.

spank said...

that was close.

spank said...

aw fuck. left puig on second. that calls for more beer.

karen said...

Boys on 1st and 2nd with 1 out. We've got a big time rally going here.

karen said...

Dee with the RBI. 2-0 Blue.

karen said...

HanRam singles in 2 more. 4-zip.

karen said...

HanRam picked off 1st for 3rd out. 4-0 Dodgers mid of 5.

karen said...

Becks shaken after beaning Cozart. Josh down at homeplate while Cozart is helped up and takes his base.

karen said...

Boys get another run in 6th, 5-1 For the Good.

karen said...

My spidey sense is telling me I've lost Spank =(

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty reporting in.

karen said...

But are you here to hang with me??

karen said...

Yasiel has got to learn to slide. I can't believe that this organization has not seen to that. Now he's grabbing at right hammy but staying in.

Orel said...

Dusty's more of a love-'em-and-leave-'em type

Orel said...

5-10-0. Good box score line so far

Dusty Baker said...

(loves Spanky)


(leaves him)

spank said...

Score? I got pulled away from the game.

karen said...

Orel...I figured one of you guys would be on PGT duty and show up here eventually!

Agon doubles in Puig. 6-0.

Orel said...

I AM LE CURE says AGon

karen said...

Oh sure. Now you all show up!!

karen said...

My Man strikes out for the third time.

Not a good night for MKW's.

karen said...

Dre gets nailed by pitch. Maybe some payback?

Orel said...

Timing is everything, Karen

Orel said...

Beckett plunk someone?

karen said...

Yeah, he beaned Cozart but was genuinely shaken up by it. I don't think any payback was called for this time.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, Karen. For these early games, I don't get back from work until around 7 at least so miss first part of game and, more importantly, the GT.

Always here in spirit, though!

And spirits!

Dusty Baker said...

Maholm called in to suck for an inning or so.

karen said...

Maholm in and immediately gives up a double.

karen said...

All is forgiven, Dust.

karen said...

Oh no. Perez warming up. A 6 run lead may not be enough.

Fred's Brim said...

I am starting to feel bad for Maholm

Steve Sax said...

Not rolling with Maholmies

Dusty Baker said...

Maholm and Perez is not the middle relief I would prefer, if given my preference.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you rolling on Maholm Drive, Sax?

karen said...

Cozart smokes one for the RBI. Actually, it was nice to see him get back into the box and get the hit right after the beaning. Perez coming in. 6-1 Dodgers.

Steve Sax said...

Mahon saw four batters, and got one out and gave up three hits.

I don't feel bad for Maholm, I just feel bad that he is pitching for us in the first place

Dusty Baker said...

Should have beaned him harder.

karen said...

I'm not sure who is the lesser of two evils...Maholm or Perez.

Steve Sax said...

Gotta jump off for an hour or so, boys and girls. Hold down the fort!

Go Dodgers!

Fred's Brim said...

Perez with the lucky strike 3

Fred's Brim said...

Perez lucky Mesoraco was held at 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

Donnie has JP up again. I can feel my elbow ligaments tearing

Fred's Brim said...

no walks, please

Fred's Brim said...

gift strike

Fred's Brim said...

grounder to short gets him out of it

Orel said...

All that and only one run given up? Lucky

Fred's Brim said...

I hope AJ during this DL stint has been watching film of Perez and has a fix

karen said...

Perez was lucky that wasn't a walk.

Fred's Brim said...

It feels worse than it is, especially when he goes to 3 balls with the bases loaded. That feels like they score .5 runs

Fred's Brim said...

Droop with a single

Fred's Brim said...

they are determined to put me to bed on west coast time

Orel said...

Maybe A.J. can fix Colletti too

karen said...

FB...I was thinking its awfully late in your part of the country!

karen said...

2-0 Fist over Bum in 7th.

Orel said...

Fist over Bum like the Sword of Damocles

Fred's Brim said...

this is like a well-played home game for me. Sadly we don't play well at home

Fred's Brim said...

Charley extra busy jinxing Wilson

Fred's Brim said...

Votto's broken bat went into the stands where it was a danger to the fans 5 hours ago

Orel said...

That's very considerate of him

Fred's Brim said...

wow, Rojas stays with the hard smash to get the double play

Orel said...

UJTD!

karen said...

Brian isn't fooling anyone.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, BWil, quit messing around

Fred's Brim said...

that'll work

Orel said...

Always an adventure

Orel said...

Fist still over Bum

karen said...

Please don't strike out again, Matty.

karen said...

Matty didn't listen to me, strikes out for the 4th time tonight.

karen said...

100

Orel said...

Cincy fans get free pizza, we get the win. Fair split

karen said...

That'll do it. Party time in Cincy!

Fred's Brim said...

there we go, great game, fellas
partymakintime!

Fred's Brim said...

Gnite all!

karen said...

If the baseball gods are with us we'll even pickup a game on the hated ones.

spank said...

we make party!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp, 0-for-4 with 4 Ks. Come on, Bison.

Steve Sax said...
