Game 127 Thread: Aug. 19 vs. Padres, 7p

Kevin Correia, in more Friarly times.

Kevin Correia (1-0, 1.50) vs. Ian Kennedy (9-10, 3.54).

Former Padre Correia takes on current Padre Kennedy in a game the Dodgers must win in order to avoid their longest losing streak of the season (four games). The Dodgers have taken seven of 10 from the Pads this season, but — all together, now — the Padres always play the Dodgers tough. In other words, they have us right where they want us.

Or do they? Correia's Dodgers debut was a pleasant surprise, and the Giants are playing the Cubs, those same Cubs who beat the Dodgers at the beginning of the month. OK, I'm reaching here.

Dodgers down 3-0. Ugh. On the bright side, we're having a infusion of Spank tonight

Orel said...

Giants down 2-0. They must be in a rain delay

Orel said...

Correia K's Kennedy and induces the inning-ending DP to escape the 2nd

Dusty Baker said...

Strange inning made stranger by Steiner trying to call it for us radio listeners.

Orel said...

A wild three-run 4th gives us the lead! 5-3 Dodgers

Orel said...

Clearly Spank is the key here

spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

"Jamie Wright is beginning to warm up in the Dodgers bullpen."

Not exactly what I wanted to hear.

Hedley.

Had to say it.

Orel said...

Matty!

spank said...

crawford singles. kemp scores. Enberg farts.

Dusty Baker said...

Matty ran through the sign, is that correct?

I mean, I'm glad he did.

spank said...

Padres can't hang with the double action of Spank and Orel.

Dusty Baker said...

This week's top reasons to go to Morongo Casino have been the same fucking reasons since pre-season. Cheap marketing bastards.

Orel said...

When's the last time we hit a home run?

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

The last time Stubbs posted a puzzle.

Pride of Dong said...

If I got into my car when the game started, I might be to the grapevine by now!

spank said...

Crawdad with a 2 run homer. yeah boyeee

Dusty Baker said...

And just like that, we get a HR. Does that mean we'll also get a puzzle from Stubbs?

spank said...

I'd be a Gnat fan before we get a puzzle from Stubbsy.

spank said...

And if I do become a Gnat fan I can hang with Josh.

Dusty Baker said...

NICE ONE, Spanky!

Dusty Baker said...

^ 45

Orel said...

This would be a great time for Crawdaddy to be less than useless

Orel said...

Kenley in to close it out!

Orel said...

Giants-Cubs still in delay. Hopefully they make 'em wait all night

spank said...

Cheap ketchup SOB.

Dusty Baker said...

spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

Mattingly couldn't say whether or not Greinke will make his scheduled Thursday start.

Orel said...

Giants lose rain-shortened game! Great job, everybody

Fred's Brim said...

WOOP!

Fred's Brim said...

"the double action of Spank and Orel"

That was the upload of the week on YouPorn

Fred's Brim said...

And I need to be on record with this: I am not on board with all of these injuries. They hurt the team, literally and figuratively, and I think we need to go in a different direction.

Hideo Nomo said...

Health is a really underrated skill. I'd like to see the team revisit it.
