Game 90 Thread: July 5 @ Rockies, 1p

Ms. Perry brought the Dodgers good luck yesterday. We're not stupid.

Dan Haren (8-4, 3.57) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (8-6, 4.86).

Today's battle of eight-game winners pits two pitchers coming off strong victories. Haren one-hit Cleveland over seven innings his last time out, retiring 13 straight in one stretch. De La Rosa held the first-place Brewers to four runs over six innings in a Colorado victory.

If you believe in momentum, the Dodgers have won seven of their past eight games against the Rockies, and a win today would give them three straight victories — no #tetraphobia to worry about yet. So kick back, crack open a beer and fire up your California Grills as you root for the Boys in Blue. Happy long weekend!

@ DBT

Alas, I don't think it is.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Ah fuck my arse! Thanks DB

Orel said...

Arse? Someone's got World Cup fever!

Orel said...

Tulo out. That should help

Dusty Baker said...

"Ah fuck my arse! Thanks DB"

I hear that a lot.

Orel said...

Seven pitches in and the Dodgers have a 1-0 lead!

Orel said...

This soccer match isn't very exciting so far

Orel said...

uRBIe!

Steve Sax said...

Two errors, two hits, two runs for the good guys!

Fred's Brim said...

Well that's a nice start. Let's see if Haren can keep it in the yard

Fred's Brim said...

seeing eye single for Rutledge

Fred's Brim said...

wow, looks like the ball is flying today, that looked like a pop to center off the bat

karen said...

FB...Haren must have heard you. He kept that one in the yard. Barely.

Fred's Brim said...

Haren in some doodoo now

Orel said...

The answer is: no

Fred's Brim said...

nice play by Hanley to get the first out, a run comes in though

Fred's Brim said...

Big K of Morneau for the second out

karen said...

Well that lead didn't last long.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, shitty single by Rosario nets the second run

Fred's Brim said...

would Dee have gotten to that one?

karen said...

FH on Fox at 4:00PST today.

Fred's Brim said...

finally, the third out, made interesting by Matty and Dre nearly colliding

Steve Sax said...

And, two runs for the bad guys. Sigh.

2-2 through 1

Orel said...

Can't wait for extras with an 18-18 tie

Orel said...

Dodgers-Rockies tied. Netherlands-Costa Rica tied

Dusty Baker said...

This futbol is a shit-ass match so far. Just now checking back in with the Dodgers. 2-2 is it?

ps - fuck the Dutch

Fred's Brim said...

Will Matty ever remember that he destroys lefties?

Fred's Brim said...

unlucky double for Morneau, let's see if Haren can get out of this

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, you've watched more international soccer than your average American. Are there any teams, leagues or regions that are "tougher" or less floppy than others, where fopping is a smaller part of that particular football culture? For example, do the teams in the Bundesliga play a more "honest" brand football than they do in Spain?

Fred's Brim said...

and he can't, Rosario gets him again

Fred's Brim said...

more trouble with 2-outs

Orel said...

shit

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is this game still not on fox?

Fred's Brim said...

and there's the homer from Stubbs
5-2 bad guys.
FIGURE IT OUT, DANNY!

Fred's Brim said...

15 homers in last 11 starts for Haren

Fred's Brim said...

Finish this shit!

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, what a meatball he threw to Stubbs. Bats are gonna need to wake up

karen said...

TWC with their usual outstanding service has gone dark. Stubbs hit a homer? 5-2 now?? What the fuck is happening?

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe can't layoff the inside pitches, looks like he's defending his crotch more than swinging for a hit

karen said...

TWC back on. Looks like everything I missed was bad.

Fred's Brim said...

I know Dre is swinging a hot bat but how about SVS against the lefty?

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, that's the quality service you expect from TWC. They'll even black out the bad parts for you

Fred's Brim said...

Dre looking Dre-like vs De La Rosa, Ks swinging for the second time

Fred's Brim said...

AJ works the 2-out walk

Fred's Brim said...

Miggy Rojas works his own walk, this one on 4 pitches

Fred's Brim said...

Haren gets jobbed on the check swing

Fred's Brim said...

then Ks on 3 pitches
at least we cleared the pitcher *sigh*

Orel said...

1-2-3 4th for Haren

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

It's only the 4th inning?

Orel said...

Don't worry, the Dodgers are getting four minutes of extra time

Fred's Brim said...

for those of you who can watch the game, is that a cardboard cutout of a person sitting behind the plate, probably 4 seats to the left of the ump?

Fred's Brim said...

Puig works the count to 3-2 but pops out

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley works it to 3-2 as well

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley nearly beats out the grounder to 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

no score after 90 between the Ticos and speedskating windmill-turning wooden-shoe-wearing tulip-twirlers

karen said...

18th homer allowed by Danny Boy this year.

Fred's Brim said...

and there's another one

Fred's Brim said...

gotta pitch better, Dan

Fred's Brim said...

Luckily Dan is approaching 100 pitches

Fred's Brim said...

Haren leaves the ball up to Rosario again but this time it goes right to Hanley

karen said...

Things are getting really ugly at Coors. Now 7-2 Rox.

karen said...

Haren out. Jamey Wright coming in. 1 out, man on 3rd in 6th. 7-2 Rox.

Fred's Brim said...

so the 1 hit in 7 innings was the anomaly. Maholm must be snikcering in the bullpen as his cleats get rusty

Orel said...

So...comeback?

Orel said...

8-7 Rockies in the 7th

Hideo Nomo said...

Hope that GIDP doesn't loom large.

Orel said...

Howell gets three groundouts in the bottom of the 7th

Orel said...

Dodgers fail to score in the 8th. We are going to lose by one

Dusty Baker said...

What is happening? Can I get a belligerent recap, please?

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid!

karen said...

Dusty...I don't know how belligerent I am, but I just got back to the house and I am hot and very pissy, so I figure that's close enough. Having said all that, I don't have a damn idea what the hell is going on. Someone help us out!!

karen said...

THE PUIGSTER LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty, Haren was Stinky Haren again, Wright wasn't very good either, we scored some runs in 7th to make us think we might come back,
League in and pitching like he wants me to murder someone.

Orel said...

Dodgers with a huge rally in the 7th. Rockies used three relievers, who walked four (one intentionally). Also one passed ball. Uribe came up with RA but GIDP (with an RBI).

Fred's Brim said...

Puig somehow turns a misplay to a double play

Orel said...

Bang bang! Puig with the 9-5 DP!

Fred's Brim said...

League, your ass got lucky there, don't waste it

Puiggy Puiggy said...

Puig throw ball hard

Fred's Brim said...

thank you
do we have one more rally in us?

Orel said...

Mike Petriello ‏@mike_petriello 1m

GIF: Yasiel Puig is bad at running routes, but oh lord does it not matter. http://gfycat.com/ThoughtfulAnchoredAchillestang

Puiggy Puiggy said...

Walk Double Single
Then Kenley for the win

Fred's Brim said...

that was annoying
gotta pitch better than that, fellas

Puiggy Puiggy said...

Or strike out line out ground out
Save Kenley for tomorrow

karen said...

1-0 FH on Blanco homer early in Padreville.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBS

Fred's Brim said...

this feels like one of those mega-annoying Sunday afternoon losses that ruin an otherwise great weekend. Luckily we can re-ruin it again tomorrow

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck the sports gods. We gave you boobs,what else did you want? First you made us suffer another Dutch win,and then a Dodgers loss. What's next, a Tour de France drug suspension?

Steve Sax said...

Dammit dammit dammit

Looks like we're gonna need an-udder themed PGT.

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh hey, that GIDP loomed large.

Couldn't escape Harenhole.

Orel said...

PGTUP
