Game 109 Thread: July 31 vs. Braves, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (12-2, 1.78) vs, Julio Teheran (10-6, 2.71).

Knowing that our meme is driving the Dodgers' longest win streak this year, we Sons are gonna keep flippin' burger references here at the mother site.

Enter: The Clayton Burger.

The Clayton Burger comes from Clayton, Washington. And according to one blogger's recap of the contents, it's pretty easy to see that the Clayton Burger's list of ingredients looks an awful lot like our 2014 Dodgers roster:

  • 2 meat
  • 2 bacon strips
  • 1 hot dog (yup on the burger)
  • 1 cheese
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • relish
  • onion pickle *
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • Sesame seed bun

I will leave it to you to determine which player is which (but Dee Gordon is one of the bacon strips, just to get you started).

If you continue with said blogpost, you get a couple of pictures of the Clayton Burger, some shots of a scary bathroom, and some news on the local sex offenders. More appetizing, however, will be the game served up by our own Clayton (Kershaw) this evening, as he goes for the sweep of the Braves, as well as the Dodgers' sixth straight victory, right on the heels of an exuberant extra-inning victory.

Can we make like the 2013 NLDS, and dispatch the Braves from Chavez Ravine with a loss? After Clayton finishes grilling the Braves, let's see if they are indeed well done.

Sax's note: it is unclear whether this refers to an "onion pickle", or if these are indeed two separate items. Also, credit to SoSG Dusty Baker for "researching" tonight's GT theme.

Where is everbody? Did Sharknado get you all?

This is crazy. We've got a duel going on here, and no comments on the GT.

2-0 through 7. First-inning 2B from A-Gon, scoring Puig; solo Puig HR in the third. And that's it.

Teheran and Kershaw each have 8 Ks.

This is the MSB of GTs.

4-pitch 8th inning for Clayton. He's at 89 pitches.

2-0 LA through 7.5

Steve Sax said...

First and third, one out for Kershaw in the ninth. Dodgers up 2-0.
