Game 78 Thread: June 29 @ D'backs, 6.30p

Mike Bolsigner (4-2, 2.95) vs. Allen Webster (1-1, 6.46).

Admittedly, when thinking about today's opposing starter and subsequent GT theme, I didn't look this one up. And since I'm a little fuzzy on all these 80's sitcoms, I did check the lyrics, though. And when I saw "You made me leap without taking a look" was rhymed with "You reeled me right in line, sinker, and hook", I have to admit I got a little depressed at how awkward that lyric reads. How about we repurpose this to, "We just can't wait to face this new stinker* / Fastball and change; not much of a sinker"? Then came you!

Anyway, the Dodgers, having just won their first series in their last four attempts, and having played 17 games in a row, square off against the Diamondbacks on the road. Meanwhile, the Giants, only one game behind the Dodgers, get their second day off in that same 17-day span, which is also their fourth day off this month. Whatchoo talkin' about, Willis? Oh dammit, I think I got that all mixed up.

Note: (*) Originally drafted by the Dodgers in 2008 (18th round)

Mike Bolsinger's curves are especially sexy tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

Eight straight balls to start the game for D'bags. Not sure if I've ever seen eight straight balls.

Neeebs' mom has, I'm sure.

Orel said...

Sexy curves! Three home runs!

Bolsinger out with food poisoning

Orel said...

Peralta gives up a 2-run HR to Nick Ahmed (who?). 4-2 Dodgers, bot 5

Steve Sax said...

@Orel: is that right? Bollinger went only four innings, no ER, and is removed for food poisoning?!

spnk said...

Bolsinger food poisoning. reminds me of the time Kobe got food poisoning in Cow Town back in the day.

Steve Sax said...

Hope Kobe Bryant can keep his food preparation in compliance with health regulations #hepatitiscarrier

Tied at 6

Steve Sax said...

Oh man, Baez can't find the strike zone. We are in trouble

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, 7-6 AZ without one out recorded in the eighth.

MR.F said...

Gah not only is this super long game still going, we're now losing?!?!?!?!?

Orel said...

Disaster strikes again.

MR.F said...

BY 4 RUNS NOW?!?!?!?!?

MR.F said...

=(

Steve Sax said...

Fucking unbelievable. Does Donnie even realize we are in a pennant race?

spnk said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

jesus fucking christ, what a stinkfest!

Dusty Baker said...

Does Donnie? Does anyone? Players looked so lethargic last night. No killer instinct. They could have slammed this game home at multiple points, despite bad relief pitching, and they just acted like it was April 8th in the season, or perhaps March 9th of training camp.

Guy with food poisoning gave the best performance.

seems like Frias pitches every other game.
