Post-Game 53 Thread: Hard Target


Shouldn't have stopped the Van Damme references, obviously. With the Dodgers having clawed back from a 4-2 deficit to go up 6-4 into the ninth inning, Adam Liberatore couldn't get either of his two batters out; Yimi Garcia walked two people (and obviously walked a run in); J.P. Howell gave a passed ball to tie the game up, then ended up intentionally walking CarGo; and finally, Nolan Arenado sacrificed in the winning run. We got an out! We lost the game anyway!

Clearly, that ninth-inning strike zone was a hard target. A split at the hands of the Rockies is pretty mediocre, but luckily, the Giants' sweepage at the hand of the Pirates keeps us two games up in the West.

Oh, and Joc Pederson tied a Dodgers record by hitting a HR in his fifth straight game. Pederson joins Roy Campanella, Shawn Green, and some guy who plays for the Padres I think.
