Game 65 Thread: June 16 @ Rangers, 5p

Brett Anderson (2-4, 3.57) vs. Chi Chi Gonzalez (2-1, 0.42).

Chi Chi is known for being tough and fierce, but Dodger fans in particular should be particularly interested in this opponent's start:

Gonzalez enters the game with a 2-1 record and 0.42 ERA in three career starts. His latest start against the Athletics was his first loss, but he went seven innings and allowed only one run.

Since Fernando Valenzuela posted a 0.33 ERA through his first three outings in 1981, the only other pitcher with a lower ERA than Gonzalez through his first three starts and at least 20 innings pitched is Pat Combs, who had a 0.41 ERA through three outings for the Phillies in 1989, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Wait a minute, Chi Chi is channeling our own Dodger legend?! Say it ain't so! Can we put up a fight?

Maybe it's about time that we grow up a bit and quit the histrionics, and focus instead on scoring some damn runs.

Imminent Collapso

Mariner Collapso. Gnats win, 6-4

Steve Sax said...

Giants won a home game? I was hoping they'd eclipse the franchise record of 11 straight home losses

Orel said...

Anderson issues bases-loaded walk but it could have been worse

Orel said...

nary a murmur of protest

karen said...

Joc with another awesome catch.

spnk said...

i bet the last time the Gnats won a home game was against the Dodgers.

Orel said...

Joc Ks with two on

Orel said...

Brett deserves better than this

Fred's Brim said...

shut the fuck up, Steiner

Fred's Brim said...

let's not push Anderson too much here

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, Brett

he probably dislocated his spleen on that

Fred's Brim said...

why the FUCK is Donnie letting Anderson go 110+ pitches?!?
I wish were in an NL park so Donnie would have to PH for him

Fred's Brim said...

Gallo with a G?
Joey Gallo's dead!

Fred's Brim said...

Howie draws a walk, and the walk draws Not Greg Maddux from the dugout, no pitching change though

karen said...

JT TIES IT!!!

Fred's Brim said...

JT Ties it!!!

Fred's Brim said...

DAMMIT! But I'll take it

Fred's Brim said...

Maddux regretting his non-decision

karen said...

Happens to the best of us, FB!!

Fred's Brim said...

take a pitch, Dre

Orel said...

JT!

Steve Sax said...

We are dangerously close to the 140 Runs that will trigger the Dunkin Donuts promotion. We have 136 runs, with four games in play and two of them tied (so we will get at least +2 runs). We need the AZ@Angels game to be a scoring machine.

Baltimore scoring 19 runs (vs. Philly's 3) really helped

Steve Sax said...

Oh wait, we're in a rally here. Sorry to be talking about donuts

(but go enter the contest, quick!)

Steve Sax said...

full count to rollins

Steve Sax said...

dammit rollins, that is pathetic. 0-for-3, now batting .199

Steve Sax said...

whoops, my dunkin donuts math is off. I now am counting only 135 runs

Fred's Brim said...

I knew this game was going too quickly

karen said...

SHIT

Fred's Brim said...

Ravin due for a tired arm meltdown

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus my stupid mouth

Orel said...

ugh

karen said...

Gnats win, Boys lose. Gonna be a quiet plane ride home

Fred's Brim said...

we'll be lucky to go 5-6 this stretch vs Texas, SF and Chicago

Steve Sax said...

ANd, just like that, we've lost. what happened?

Steve Sax said...

In positive news, I think we've reached our requisite 140 runs for #dunkindonuts

spnk said...

Dodgers lost? big surprise

Fred's Brim said...
