Post-Game 161 Thread: Grand Larson-y


In the extra-inning game no one wanted to see, the Dodgers ended up beating the Rockies when Scott Van Slyke stoked a one-out single in the bottom of the twelfth inning, and then advanced to second when Tim Federowicz was HBP, and then stole third (hence the headline), and the scored on a Franklin Morales wild pitch that carried to the backstop. Hoping for the wild pitch to win the game: just the way Donnie likes to draw it up.

Carlos Frias tossed scoreless frames in the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth innings for his first major league win. There probably was some other action in this game, including an Adrian Gonzalez HR, but I was busy so I didn't see anything except that fateful bottom of the twelfth. Dan Haren went five innings and allowed two runs and five hits, which is probably good enough for the postseason roster in Mattingly's book.

Dee Gordon had right hip irritation and left the game early, and the ever brittle Hanley Ramirez had a wicked foul ball that hit him on the knee (during his AB), but aside from that I don't think anyone got injured, thankfully.
