Game 24 Thread: May 3 vs. D'backs, 1p

As you can see, we've had our eye on you for some time now, Mr. Anderson.

Brett Anderson (1-1, 5.49) vs. Chase Anderson (0-1, 4.24).

I know, the reference doesn't really fit, when it was Agent Smith who duplicated himself rather than Mr. Anderson. But fans at today's afternoon game will see duplicated Andersons square off: Brett (ours), vs. Chase (theirs). Neither will be wearing 90's era sunglasses.

The magic number today, however, is 4: the Dodgers have not lost a game when scoring four or more runs. In some ways, the outcome of today's game is meaningless. However with the Giants inching their way back to 4.5 games behind the NL West-leading Dodgers...it would be nice to keep the early-season pressure on. So take the frickin' red pill already and let's keep the good times rolling.

One of the Dustettes and I will be out the Yard today if anyone wants to catch up in person.

karen said...

I would like to publicly thank BJ (I think it was Mrs. Killeen anyway) for labeling Goldschmidt with the far more appropriate GoldSHIT.

I just love that.

Dusty Baker said...

At the Yard, Vinny!

karen said...

Davey Lopes is SEVENTY years old today. Happy Day Davey, you look like you're maybe 50.

Agon gets first hit with 2 down in 4th. No score.

Steve Sax said...

Slow game

karen said...

Todays Vinnyism----While TV camera is showing baby sleeping in grandma's lap..."Do angels dream of angels? Maybe".

We love you, Vin!!

karen said...

@Sax...It's been a total yawner.

Dusty Baker said...

Playing MPQ and waiting for something to happen. Dre with a single and Uribe up with two outs.

karen said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Steve Sax said...

@karen: thanks for the update... I'm watching now in the ninth (just in time to see Rollins feebly strike out)

Steve Sax said...

WHY IS KENDRICK GOING FOR THREE???

Steve Sax said...

Kendrick has been great for us but MAN that was stupid

Cliff Beefpile said...

I guess he saw Trumbo fumbling with the ball, but I still think he should've stopped at second.

You're not allowed to block the plate, but you can block one of the other bases and invite a collision?

karen said...

I know the rule is you don't get thrown out at 3rd to make the first out or the third out. But getting thrown out at 3rd to make the second out?? Well, that sucks like a mofo too.

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon reaches on an infield single. Two out for little AG (Alex Guerrero)

karen said...

Y'all up for xtras??

Steve Sax said...

Nope. On to extras, 0-0

Cliff Beefpile said...

Who figured this one would be the pitcher's duel?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ugh, Goldschmidt. What a pain in the dick he is.

Steve Sax said...

leadoff double for the snakes in the 10th. not good

Steve Sax said...

whew, we get out of it, thanks to Paco

0-0, on to B10

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow is Trumbo an awkward outfielder.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier with a leadoff double!

Note how he didn't try and go for three, Howie!

Steve Sax said...

Dusty are you still at the game?

karen said...

Dre sticks the landing at 2nd. No 3rd base out this time around.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe takes the first pitch and bunts it straight up, luckily it falls foul before a Snake can catch it.

1-1 count

Steve Sax said...

Uribe you gotta swing here. I want jazz hands

Cliff Beefpile said...

Remember the last time you tried to get Uribe to bunt, Donnie!?

Steve Sax said...

Uribe hasn't bunted in two years, says Vin

Steve Sax said...

Another bunt that goes straight up, but foul.

STOP BUNTING

Steve Sax said...

And Uribe swings on a gopherball slider for a weak K.

Steve Sax said...

Grandal PH for Ellis.

Steve Sax said...

Grandal walks, SVS Ks. And here's Joc the kid.

Steve Sax said...

Pederson is 0-for-4 with 3 Ks today.

Steve Sax said...

And like the Diamondbacks, the leadoff double can't score.

On to the 11th, 0-0

Cliff Beefpile said...

Nice inning by Paco. Now score a run dammit!

Steve Sax said...

my god, Rollins is incredibly ineffective with the bat

Steve Sax said...

Kendrick, three-pitch K

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon with an ugly K as well.

0-0 through 11.

Steve Sax said...

nicasio Ks pollock, who thought it was ball four. Pollock starts jawing. One out.

Here's Goldschmidt.

Steve Sax said...

well at least J-Roll can play defense. GIDP!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Rollins at least doing it with the glove.

Steve Sax said...

On to 13th.

Steve Sax said...

i'm picturing Dusty going nuts in beer withdrawal.

karen said...

OUT AT THE PLATE!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Nice play! Glad Howell didn't get hurt on that.

karen said...

YAZ WITH THE WALK OFF!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

GONE! Dodgers sweeeeeeeeeeep! We make grand ol' Grandal party!

Steve Sax said...

andre dancing at the home plate celebration there was hilarious

karen said...

I think someone needs to take Dre aside and remind him that he is indeed white and white guys can't dance.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

He's only half white, so he should at least be able to pass on his dancing!

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

You nailed me! No beer in several extra innings is a bummer. We finally left bc the Dustette was cold and I was thirsty.

Dusty Baker said...

Grandal, doing it all!

Dusty Baker said...

Sons undefeated this season!

spnk said...

noice

Fred's Brim said...

that was awesome!

Fred's Brim said...

I hated the wild pitch/passed ball and was about to be furious for the rest of the day but Grandal getting it to JP and that great tag was amazing. YOu hardly ever see that be anything but a pitcher scared to get near the plate. They are lucky to catch the ball from the catcher let alone stick in there and make the play

spnk said...

when did Mark Madsen join the Dodgers?
