Game 139 Thread: September 2 vs. Nationals, 7p

Kershaw, fister.

Clayton Kershaw (16-3, 1.73) vs. Doug Fister (12-5, 2.55).

  • Clayton Kershaw is after his major-league-leading 17th win this season.
  • Doug Fister has allowed nine runs and 17 hits in 11.2 innings in his last two outings, both losses.
  • The Dodgers haven't lost three consecutive games at home all year.
  • The Nationals haven't won a series in Los Angeles since 2005.

So why do I feel so damn nervous about tonight's game?!

Oh yeah, now I remember. This bobblehead is just...weird. For starters, I might be crazy, but I don't think that baseball is the right proportion to Magic.

You know who should be nervous? Anybody in the stadium named Doug who doesn't like getting fisted

Fred's Brim said...

Pedersen in, Puig out is a good move. Let's get YP's hip some rest and maybe some of those platelets or deer antler serum that Ray Lewis used

Steve Sax said...

Juan Uribe just heard "extra platelets" and his ears pricked up

Steve Sax said...

Col 2, SF 0, B2

Fred's Brim said...

"Why don't they just put them on one big plate?"

Steve Sax said...

6-0 COL through three

Fun pregame, with Queen Latifah introducing Mo'Ne Davis to throw out the first pitch. She pumps one down the middle to Drew Butera

Fred's Brim said...

"Fans call for T-Fed to replace Butera"

George Lopez in row 2

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton walks Werth. The slider didnt get as in as it usually does, plus Werth didn't swing at it

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton gets Desmond with the hook

Fred's Brim said...

Dee Ks quickly

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley hits the ball hard but Frandsen smothers it at 1st

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian draws a 2-out walk

Fred's Brim said...

I don't think I have seen Fister before. There's a ton of movement on his pitches, kinda reminds me of AJ Burnett

Fred's Brim said...

Matt flies to center

Fred's Brim said...

Ramos singles on the first pitch to right center

Steve Sax said...

Giants score 1 but Rox score back. 7-1 through five

Fred's Brim said...

Harper pops back of short for the first out

Steve Sax said...

Giants' Petit only lasted 4.0 IP: 7 H, 6 ER, 1 HR, 1 BB and 5 Ks.

Fred's Brim said...

Hairston pops to first

Steve Sax said...

Oyster Pubes just homered, so it's 7-2 COL

Fred's Brim said...

wow, great shorthop pickup right at the bag by Uribe

Steve Sax said...

0-0 through 1.5 in LA.

Steve Sax said...

come on Joc, hit a HR here

Steve Sax said...

Pederson: in play, no out

Fred's Brim said...

Joc with his first hit, a bloop to center!

Steve Sax said...

first major league hit for Joc, a single to center!

Fred's Brim said...

Puig very enthused to see him get his hit

Fred's Brim said...

Frias is starting tomorrow? Did they push Haren back?

Fred's Brim said...

AJ with a roller to short, Desmond can't hang on to it, Joc to second

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton with a medium liner to third for the third out, Joc gets a big welcome back in the dugout

Fred's Brim said...

Giants creeping on COL, 7-4

Steve Sax said...

My mlb.com gameday is all jacked up.

But SF is closing in, it's 7-4 COL

Fred's Brim said...

Fister battling

Fred's Brim said...

finally gets him swinging

Fred's Brim said...

Rendon pokes one to Uribe

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton walks Cabrera, his control is off tonight

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley backhands the Werth liner!

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy I need to go to bed. I am counting on you to get this win for us while simultaneously making sure the Giants lose. Can you handle that?

Fred's Brim said...

I am as sleepy as our bats
Gnite all

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Where's the runs?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

I'm sitting around here in (Nationals viewing area) bitching because I'm black out on my MLBTV subscription thEn I finally realized that...the game is actually on REGULAR TV!

Dusty Baker said...

2-run HR for Uribe!!!!

4-0 with Kid K having another good inning left in him. We got this.

I think.

Dusty Baker said...

UPDATE: Then I realized though I am in [the Nationals TV viewing area] my hotel doesn't carry MASN, the station that carries the Nats. (CRIES)

Paul said...

Fuck the Giants.

Steve Sax said...

I come back and SF is up 12-7? DAMMIT

Dusty Baker said...

Go way again and maybe Gnats will start losing? Logic seems tight.

Steve Sax said...

PGT UP!
