Game 124 Thread: Aug. 15 vs. Brewers, 7p

Zack Greinke, in happier times.

Zack Greinke (12-8, 2.84) vs. Jimmy Nelson (2-3, 4.00).

The Zack-Can't-Beat-His-Old-Teams Curse is real, folks! After last week's loss at Miller Park, Greinke has now been unable to beat his former teams in seven tries. But of greater concern to Dodger fans should be the un-Greinke-like seven earned runs he's given up in his past two starts. Probably just a blip on the radar, but the team's injury concerns magnify every flaw right now.

Tonight is also Star Wars Night at Dodger Stadium, with Star Wars-themed fireworks following the game. Utinni!

At Isotopes Park. Bottom of first, Pederson GIDP.

Orel said...

Trade him!

Orel said...

Getting soaked, Greg?

Greg said...

Thunderstorm delay.

Greg said...

We're inside watching them out the Iso-tarps down.

Greg said...

"Put"

Orel said...

'Tarps win! 'Tarps win!

Greg said...

They're certainly ahead now. The tarps anyway.

Dusty Baker said...

Who is pitching for the 'Tarps?

Ben Sheets? Oh, I kill me.

Steve Sax said...

Crawford basically GIDPs but a hard slide from kemp at second saves him. Then Uribe fans badly to end the threat. 1-0 LA.

Tonight I'm especially disgusted that I can't watch the game, so I'm not even listening to it.

Orel said...

@Dusty, 7:39p: Ha!

Greg said...

Tim Raines coaching first.

Dusty Baker said...

Mike Leake warming up.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp deftly avoids the rundown! Let's see if Crawford can score him: Kemp on second, two out.

Steve Sax said...

By the fact my buffering mlb.tv just broke for a commercial break, I'm figuring the answer is "no"

1-0 LA through 3.

Steve Sax said...

"Scooter Gennett"? Really, Milwaukee?

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

whew! three straight walks, but Greinke catches Nelson looking to escape. 1-0 LA through 3.5

Steve Sax said...

apparently Giants up 3-0 on the Phils

Steve Sax said...

AJ GIDPs. Dammit AJ, when are you going to start hitting?

Hopefully this year.

Steve Sax said...

3-1 SF in the fifth

Orel said...

What's with Zack?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

On on marvel puzzle quest, is it strictly team-based play?

Hideo Nomo said...

Zack Greinke has an utinni head.

Hideo Nomo said...

It's solo play, but all alliance members benefit from each other's play. Even my slacking ass.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm the Chris Perez of the MPQ SoSG Alliance.

Steve Sax said...

cool blimp view there, with Dee up and a man on first.

Dee forces out Barney. Gordon at first, one out.

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...solo play.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus christ, can we go without an injury for more than four innings?

Steve Sax said...

Phillies have tied it at 3, top 8.

Dodgers up 2-0 at the stretch.

Steve Sax said...

Vin tells us that Kung Fu Panda was nailed at the plate to end the eighth. So it's 3-3 in SF.

Brewers score 1. 2-1, Milwaukee still rallying on Jamey Wright

Steve Sax said...

wright gives up the lead fully. 2-2, men at second and third, one out for Milwaukee.

Yank Wright.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet shit-sucking jesus, Wright.

Steve Sax said...

League, and his mullet, strikes out Weeks! Two out

Dusty Baker said...

No TV
Game Day minutes behind
Game Day lost audio

Dusty mad.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, League gives up a double that clears the bases.

5-2 Milwaukee. Wright lost this one for us.

Steve Sax said...

Puig leadoff double to left. Nice!

Steve Sax said...

5-3 in the ninth.

Steve Sax said...

T10 in SF, looks like Phils have a man on second.

Steve Sax said...

Frias does his Wright impression. 6-3 Mil. Boy, when the Dodgers screw the pooch, they screw the pooch.

Steve Sax said...

bases loaded, one out for Phils

Steve Sax said...

6-3 as we go to the bottom of the ninth.

Steve Sax said...

Chase Utley HBP with the bases juiced, so Phillies take a 4-3 lead

Steve Sax said...

5-3 Phils

Steve Sax said...

And, we lose.

Curse you Jamey Wright.

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT I hate. Just...I hate.
