Game 105 Thread: July 26 @ Giants, 6p

Clayton Kershaw (11-2, 1.92) vs. Ryan Vogelsong (5-7, 3.99)

We've tried boobs. Might as well try burgers.

Dodgers will hope to double down on their emphatic win last night, and the odds are good for doing so with the #1 pitcher in baseball taking on a struggling Vogelsong. As SoSG Sax reported earlier today, it seems as though Puig is becoming more entrenched in center field, which may be part of the secret menu to help provide the stability that hasn't truly been there all season, really shake things up, in time for the stretch run. Only a half game separates these two teams, and this series remains critical, almost taking on a playoff atmosphere. Please lettuce take this one today!

Where the hell did Dan Uggla come from? I know, the Barves cut him, but I had pretty much thought his career was fried. Now he's an every day starter for a contending NL West team. To top it all off, we have to hear Vin tell us at least several more times that "Uggla" is Swedish for "owl."

Programming note: Don't forget the six o'clock hour start time, not the usual seven, for this one.

Can I have the #7, grilled, hold the mayo, with a side of Giant woopass? Super size that bitch!

spank said...

4x4 with a side order of boobs,here.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gonna be mostly unavailable for this one. Get a win, boyos!

QuadSevens said...

Nice GT! Now I want a double double too.

QuadSevens said...

K, fly out, and ground out. Dodgers go down easily in the first.

QuadSevens said...

SNLA gave the news that the Gints made a trade and will have Jake Peavy starting tomorrow night.

QuadSevens said...

Ground out, single, and GIDP for Oyster Pubes to end the first.

karen said...

I always hated facing Peavy when he was with the Pods. It seemed like he always beat us.

QuadSevens said...

You're not wrong in thinking that Karen. He's 14-2 against us.

QuadSevens said...

Top of the 3rd no score. Uribe flys out.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah Jake owned us back in the day. But that was like 42 years ago. We should be able to take him now.

karen said...

@Quad...We'll just have to assume he's an older, slower, more dimwitted Peavy. All necessary components to become a frisco giant.

karen said...

Vogelsong has not allowed a hit through 3.

Imagine that, a no hitter through 3.

karen said...

So far no Swedish owl story Dust!!

karen said...

There goes the perfecto and the no hitter.

Ahhh, no soup for you Ryan!!

spank said...

one large crab bisque

karen said...

HanRam thrown out at second trying to stretch the single but AGon scores before out is recorded. LA 1, FH 0.

QuadSevens said...

@karen I love the "FH" abbreviation for the Gints.

Runs

karen said...

Thanks Quad. I find it to be muy appropriate!!

karen said...

It's already the fifth inning. This game is just humming along.

karen said...

MKW happy =)

Orel said...

2-0!

karen said...

Uribe brings in CC. Vogelsong doing a Chris Perez on the mound. LA 2, FH, 0.

karen said...

Damn you Orel!! Is it going to be one of those nights? =)

karen said...

FH think they are channeling the '27 Yankees with no names on the backs of the jerseys.

Orel said...

Ha ha, Karen, maybe. I hope the end result is like last night's game, anyway

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

2-0 Kershaw! It's over! Vigilschlong is done

karen said...

Rally time!! Boys on 2nd and 3rd with no out in 6th.

Dusty Baker said...

Suck it, Oyster Pubes!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey what's the Swedish word for owl? I'm trying to remember but I can't.

karen said...

Bases RA, Kid K coming up. 2 out, 4-0 Good Guys in 6th.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

4-0 Kershaw! It's over bitches!

Dusty Baker said...

Grand slam Kershaw now.

karen said...

Kid K K's, but score is 4 for all that is good and holy and nada for the evil doers.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like Kid K is about to put the screws to these bitches in the next 6 outs. Not that he hasn't already, but he is feeling it, and ready to slam the door.

Orel said...

We're going streaking!

Steve Sax said...

crawford just looks overmatched at the plate. 2-1 pitch, way outside, he checkswings but goes over for a strike. Then the net one is inside and he does the whole "scoot back from the plate" thing, and he's called out looking.

First and second, two out, T7. LA 5, SF 0

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

It's over! Lights outs!

Steve Sax said...

@karen 7:21p: to be fair to the Giants, I think they've had nameless jerseys for a while now

Steve Sax said...

Kemp gets a four-pitch walk. Here's Juan Uribe.

Steve Sax said...

accidentally loaded the CSN Bay Area tv feed for a second, and all they can talk about is bemoaning the fact that "the game slowed down in the fifth inning."

Steve Sax said...

back to the LA TWC feed.

Steve Sax said...

Horrible third strike call by the ump. Uribe can't believe it, but they exchange words quickly and at least Uribe is cool about it

Steve Sax said...

gotta turn off the game for a second, sorry

Orel said...

It's like Charley is actively trying to jinx Kershaw. "It looks like he'll go 9-0 since Memorial Day." "If Kershaw can keep the shutout...."

karen said...

MOVING DAY!!

In first again...this time to stay.

=) =) =)

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

DBT is cut off. No more beers for me. .. :(

Steve Sax said...

Nice to be back in first

Orel said...

HYMFPGTUP!
