Post-Game 104 Thread: Puig Serves Up Triple Triple; Dodgers Go Animal Style on Giants


The Dodgers, rested from their day off yesterday, began tonight's game with some sparks, with Yasiel Puig tripling and Adrian Gonzalez knocking him in for the 1-0 lead. Little did we know what this would augur.

The fifth inning is where the Dodgers opened up the can of whup-ass, mostly on Tim Lincecum:

  • Zack Greinke with a one-out single.
  • Dee Gordon RBI triple to center. 2-0 Dodgers.
  • Puig RBI triple to center. 3-0 Dodgers.
  • A-Gon RBI single to right. 4-0 Dodgers.
  • Hanley Ramirez single to left; Lincecum chased after 4.1 IP.
  • With Juan Gutierrez pitching, Carl Crawford lines to first for the second out.
  • Matt Kemp with a 2-RBI triple to right. 6-0 Dodgers.
  • Juan Uribe flies to left, to end the inning. 6-0 Dodgers.

That's right, a three-triple inning for the Dodgers. And in fact, Puig himself had an incredible three-triple night: a triple triple. Puig went 4-for-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBI--11 TB (three triples and a double)--in his first career start in center field. Maybe that's a good spot for him?

The Dodgers had 15 hits tonight, with no HR. A.J. Ellis, Carl Crawford, and Juan Uribe each went 0-for-5. Speaking of lame performances, Paul Maholm is still trainwreckian, giving up three hits and a walk in the ninth inning, and allowing the Giants to get on the board.

And our starter, Zack Greinke? Just another 10-K evening, 7.0 scoreless innings pitched, with only one walk. In fact, Greinke recorded the Dodgers' fourth all-time 4-K inning, when (in the third inning), Greinke Kd Hector Sanchez swinging, Tim Lincecum looking, and Hunter Pence swinging but the ball escaped Ellis and Pence reached first safely; so, Greinke struck out Gregor Blanco who was thrown out at first for the fourth and final out. Great night for Zack and Puig, and for the start to this three-game series!

Wow this PT was up fast!

For some unexplained reason though, I have a sudden craving for In n Out Burger.

Now, onto more pressing matters, like Heroic OSCORP.

Three is the magic number. De La Soul just called and asked to speak with Yasiel.

Giants are trading for Peavy.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck Peavey - he sucks.

Although he usually owned us when he was with the Pod Rays.

Dusty Baker said...

Peavey will start for SF Sunday night, according to a retweet from Eric Stephen.
