Game 52 Thread: June 2 @ Rockies (Game 2), 5.40p

Zack Greinke (5-1, 1.58) vs. David "Alan" Hale (1-0, 2.70).

Ugh, that first game was a pretty mediocre effort by the Dodgers (who lost, 6-3), save Pederson's mammoth third-inning HR (the fifth-longest HR of the year, according to MLB Statcast, at 477 feet). The first-place lead in the NL West shrinks to one game. But if Zack Greinke can pull off the EPIC SPLIT here, then we'll feel a lot better. Cue the soothing Enya music!

Looks like Saxy managed to work in the always appreciated 'Gilligan's Island' reference in the GT. Good job, dude!!!

Fred's Brim said...

haha Charlie absolutely Charlied that Kíke homerun, 1-0 good guys!

Fred's Brim said...

what is up with the sun in CO? The last three games look like nuclear fallout is descending on Coors

Fred's Brim said...

Good inning for Grank, three groundouts

karen said...

WHAT A JOCK THIS KID IS!!!! 2-0 Good Guys.

karen said...

I didn't know SVS went on the DL. Well, shit.

karen said...

AGONE!!! 4-zip Blue.

Orel said...

472 feet!

Orel said...

(for Joc)

Steve Sax said...

Call him the half-millipede, then

karen said...

Man o man o man. All tied up.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, two-out triple ties it for the Rockies at 4

Fred's Brim said...

we can't get swept on Spank's birthday
he'll drive to Denver and set Dre's hotel room on fire

Fred's Brim said...

man we sure have a lot of no-name pitchers clocking real innings for us

Steve Sax said...

I have a bad feeling my groin is about to split in two

karen said...

"he'll drive to Denver and set Dre's hotel room on fire"....hehehe

Steve Sax said...

And Rollins steals third with two out because...why?

Fred's Brim said...

because he's got grit

karen said...

@Saxy 7:29....Would it be inappropriate to make the obligatory Michael Scott comment "That's what she said"?

Fred's Brim said...

there is no way Joc isn't striking out in this AB

Fred's Brim said...

or maybe he'll do that instead! 5-5 good guys!

Steve Sax said...

Pederson's triple (another two-out triple) ties the game at 5. B7 we go.

Steve Sax said...

Giants already up 2-0

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy I don't know if you caught it but broadcaster Orel had some semi-funny "Sax is kind of a dumdum" stories earlier in the game

Steve Sax said...

I missed it.

I was in detention hall

Fred's Brim said...

i just noticed that spank has been conspicuously absent tonight. he may already be on his way to Denver with a trunk full of molotov cocktails and a belly full of regular cocktails

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy did you sass the teacher? or were you smoking in the boys room?

karen said...

Well, my attitude is getting real sucky about now.

Fred's Brim said...

jesus, you could see that coming, Yimi continuing to challenge Tulo who was just timing the fastball

FB OUT

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Yimi, now we're down 7-5

Orel said...

9th inning, bases loaded, no out...

karen said...

JT wasn't cheated on that swing but pulls it foul.

Orel said...

(oh, and we're down by three)

karen said...

That breaking ball was not a strike.

Orel said...

Dammit. Sets up the game-ending DP

karen said...

Yeah Orel. The down by 3 part is a pesky little detail!!

karen said...

OH MY GOD!! IT'S RAINING ORGASMS HERE IN SO CAL!!!!

Orel said...

In play, run(s)!

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT

karen said...

Grand freaking slam!!!

karen said...

Can you believe that???? It's like when Gibby hit the homer in Game 1 and all the people who were in the parking lot leaving started slamming on their brakes.

MKW happy.

Orel said...

Hope Kenley's feeling fresh

MR.F said...

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY

karen said...

I'd feel a little better if Yaz could pump one outta here and give Kenley some breathing room.

karen said...

...and Bucs take the lead up in frisco. This night just keeps getting better and better!!!

karen said...

Is that CO pitcher sporting a mullet??

Orel said...

Giants losing

karen said...

Out looking.

One.

MR.F said...

Beautiful strike. Shut up Tulo.

karen said...

I knew I shouldn't have gotten cocky and start counting outs.

MR.F said...

Fuck. Pick up the fucking ball.

Orel said...

Shit. Cargo double

karen said...

JRoll never bobbles nothin' that's hit to him. Dude is messing with my heart.

MR.F said...

Nice play from Rollins. 2 out, CarGo to 3rd.

karen said...

0 and 2.

karen said...

Too much drama for this old girl.

MR.F said...

YES!!!!

karen said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SPANKY WHERE EVER YOU ARE!!!!

Orel said...

karen said...

It's really cool that the Rabin kid is getting the win.
