Game 73 Thread: June 17 vs. Rockies, 7p

Zack Greinke (8-3, 2.65) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (1-4, 4.53).

I've made up my mind. Don't need to think it over, we either lapse or we fight. Don't need to look no further, it ain't lost, I know, this, is June.

But,

if we don't start winning, and playing like last night. 'cause we will still need to scrap, and that's exactly what we need to do,

if we, want to make six games up, oh,

Should we give up? Or should we just let Chacin K us?

Even if it leads nowhere?

Yeah, I know this is a little bit of a stretch. I was going to talk about Greinke's quest for his ninth win of the year, but I'm too busy celebrating the USMNT's victory over Ghana. So, Adeleted my first pass at this GT.

Get runs from the (upside down) greek

karen said...

Sox leading Hated Ones 8-2 in 6th.

Footsteps.

Fred's Brim said...

a grounder and a dunker have Grank in some 1-out trouble

Fred's Brim said...

Morneau lines to Puig who nearly doubles off Tolowitzki

Fred's Brim said...

and the phony Stubbs goes down looking

Fred's Brim said...

nothin doin in the bottom of the 1st

Greg said...

Wow. Chacin gets out of it in 5 pitches.

Greg said...

Fred's Brim said...

Some risky baserunning by Dre there, espcially with 2 outs, didn't work out

Fred's Brim said...

Grank's pitchcount is way up for this early in the game

Fred's Brim said...

great play by Rojas to pick up that smash and get the lead runner

Fred's Brim said...

Rojas makes an easier version of the same play to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

CWS 8, SFG 2, Final

Fred's Brim said...

Rojas, back up after Dre's baserunning goof in the 2nd, singles to lead off the 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

The Cup is in the booth with Vin!

karen said...

Lord Stanley in the booth with Vinny. How very cool!

Fred's Brim said...

Vin telling a hockey story of course

Fred's Brim said...

Vin literally having a conversation with his listeners

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke wastes his at bat

karen said...

I've never seen Vin turn his back to the game while calling it. True to form though, he didn't miss a beat.

Fred's Brim said...

Dee with a sneaky grounder to second, Rojas over to second, Dee out at first

Fred's Brim said...

HANLEY!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Opposite field donk!!

Steve Sax said...

2-0 thanks to HanRam!

Let's go, Blue!

Orel said...

Should Hanley look at Kasten and do Shaq's PAY ME thing?

Fred's Brim said...

Puig with a hard ground single to left

Steve Sax said...

My at bat app is not liking the latest update. Keeps crashing

karen said...

FB...Did you see all the bubbles in the dugout after Hanley's homer?

Steve Sax said...

@Orel: if HanRam did that, he'd probably pull a muscle while making the gesture

Fred's Brim said...

"Stan how my nuts taste?!"

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, I did! I was wondering if those were coming from the dugout or the fans above it

Fred's Brim said...

WOW great diving catch by Puig for the third out! Nice quick inning for Grienke

karen said...

Puig with what can only be called another typical Puig catch.

Fred's Brim said...

MATTY!!!

3-0 good guys, 1-0 karen!

Fred's Brim said...

more bubbles!

Orel said...

Someone's gonna be happy

karen said...

Another happy night for Kemp Whores!! 3-0 Blue.

I am really loving the "Dance Party" in the dugout when someone scores. Finally some energy from our guys.

Fred's Brim said...

more Bubbles!

Fred's Brim said...

Dre hates being on the basepaths tonight

karen said...

Not such a good night on the bases for Dre.

Orel said...

That rally fell apart quickly. Still 3-0

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke in trouble with a couple of 2-out singles

Fred's Brim said...

And Grienke gets Dickerson to chase for the third out. He's in the high 80s for pitches

karen said...

Zack has really settled down nicely. He may actually get that elusive ninth win tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke nearly swings his tiny head out of his helmet

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke taking some hard cuts

Fred's Brim said...

and then draws the walk!

karen said...

Dee has his Superman t-shirt on under his uni.

Fred's Brim said...

haha Grienke tags from first on Hanley's deep fly to center

Fred's Brim said...

more guys should try that

Fred's Brim said...

especially with 2 outs

Fred's Brim said...

Puig grounds to third for the third out

Fred's Brim said...

Tulowitzki with a leadoff single
We'll see what kind of rope Grienke gets

Fred's Brim said...

stupid wild pitch lets Tulo get to second

Fred's Brim said...

and then he walks Morneau. I predict a JP appearance this inning

Orel said...

Sanctioned violence going on in AZ

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke can't find the strikezone now

karen said...

Zack spiraling.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, perfectly placed pop from fake Stubbs loads the bases

Fred's Brim said...

still no outs

karen said...

RA with nobody out.

Fred's Brim said...

fly ball to Puig, he nearly nails Morneau tagging to third
3-1 good guys

Fred's Brim said...

runners on second and third, 1 out

Orel said...

Trade an out for a run

Fred's Brim said...

single ties this up :/

Fred's Brim said...

Big K for the second out

karen said...

Zack K's Wheeler on his 109th pitch.

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke throwing hard but can't finish LeMahieu

Orel said...

That Josh Tucker is fast on the draw

Orel said...

FINISH HIM

Fred's Brim said...

comebacker finally gets LeMahieu, Grienke at 120,000 pitches

karen said...

Greinke gets out of it cheaply enough. 117 pitches for the night.

Orel said...

117 pitches for ZG

Orel said...

@FB: Ha!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Dre, just hit a homer so you can't get thrown out on the bases

Fred's Brim said...

Tulo can't handle the hot smash from Dre, probably should have

Hideo Nomo said...

I think everyone missed the point of the hashtag joke. I got it.

Fred's Brim said...

Red walks

Orel said...

Two-out madness? Ethier, Ellis on

Fred's Brim said...

sorry, that was Ellis, Rojas up now to face a tiring Chacin

Fred's Brim said...

perfectly placed single smothered by Tulowitzki, Justin Tuner to PH

karen said...

RA for the Good Guys!

Fred's Brim said...

Turner swinging like a guy who hasn't batted in a while

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think I can make it to the end. Hold this lead, yall!

Orel said...

Shit, they scored?

karen said...

Hanley leaving the game after taking a hard grounder off his right hand.

Orel said...

Sleep tight, FB!

karen said...

Well shit Orel, I left the room, came back in and saw Hanley get hurt and totally missed that they scored. Am I fired??

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Inning status for the poor.

karen said...

We need FB back! As soon as he leaves, Rox score and HanRam gets hurt.

League in to pitch to Tulo. Tying run at second, one out.

Orel said...

Hanley can't stop...getting hurt

Orel said...

Second-pitch swinging. Thank you, Tulo

karen said...

Tulo grounds to 3rd. 2 out, tying run still on 2nd, top of 7th.

Orel said...

NOT NOW DEE

karen said...

Stubbs (theirs not ours) bounces to Dee who drops the ball. RA, bad guys.

karen said...

League gets out of it. 3-2 Blue, mid of 7.

karen said...

Triunfel (?) hits it out!! Dancing and bubbles in the dugout. 4-2 Good Guys.

karen said...

Yasiel has new sweatbands on with the number 19 on them. Maybe a tribute to Tony Gwynn? Now Vinny mentioning that AGon has on the same sweatbands. Definetly in TGwynn's honor.

Steve Sax said...

Who-the-hell-is-this-guy with a HR!

Greg said...

I think ther's a kid in the dugout with a bubble gun. Van Slyke was trying to bite them like a dog.

Orel said...

TRIUNFEL!

Orel said...

Love the Gwynn tribute. Thanks for the detail, Karen

Steve Sax said...

Can't believe no one mentioned the Adele pun

Steve Sax said...

(In the GT)

karen said...

Remember when the Angels had the Rally Monkey?? 2002 I think. The Dodgers now have a green bubble making machine in the dugout that the players are turning on whenever someone scores. This is a turning point, I feel it in these old bones!!

karen said...

Report on HanRam: Contusion to the right ring finger. Xrays were negative. He's listed as day to day.

karen said...

BWil gets them out in the eighth with 26 pitches. 4-2 Dodgers.

Orel said...

Sax, only someone like you would make puns like that.

karen said...

Kenley coming in. We may need to buckle up our seatbelts. He's been shaky his last couple of outings.

Hideo Nomo said...

I could think of 19 or 21 better puns.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

The Flaming Menudos have been shaky the last few outtings too.

karen said...

Dickerson singles to center to start the ninth. Tulo singles to right. Morneau coming up. What the fuck is going on with Kenley??

Orel said...

Kenley promptly gives up back-to-back singles. It's never easy

Orel said...

NEVER ADELE MOMENT

karen said...

Morneau pops to the new kid at short. 1 out. Runners on 1st and 2nd.

Steve Sax said...

Come on, KJ

karen said...

Parker K's looking. 2 down.

Steve Sax said...

Idiots standing up behind home plate right as KJ delivers. Someone shoot them.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

It's a confederate of dunces behind home plate.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck TWC, Vinny!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

*confederacy*

karen said...

WE WIN!! 5 out. We're comin' you fuckheads!

Steve Sax said...

Way to go Kenley! 2Ks to end the game

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Karen with porn dialogue

Steve Sax said...

Yay mlb.tv for bringing me that game, as I board my plane...

Dusty Baker said...

Footsteps, indeed.

Hell and goodnight, SoSG peeps. Sorry I missed this one.

Love, Dust-ometer

Orel said...

Baby got five back!

Steve Sax said...

Keep the pressure on Dodgers. Much road left to go!

Orel said...

Molly Knight ‏@molly_knight 6s

Dodgers have cut the Giants lead from 9.5 games to 5 games in the last eight days. Kershaw goes tomorrow. SF faces Chris Sale. #math

Dusty Baker said...

Who the fuck is Triunfel?

Hideo Nomo said...

Baby stepping Dr. Marvin!

karen said...

Matty talking about the bubbles in the dugout calling it a "Foam Party" and saying they're having fun. JHairJr hinting that Matt's behind the bubble machine in the dugout.

Dusty Baker said...

We make foam party!!!!

Orel said...

PGTbubbleUP!
