Game 94 Thread: July 20 @ Braves, 4p

Brandon Beachy (0-1, 6.75) vs. Matt Wisler (3-1, 3.10)

After four seasons with Atlanta (14-11 record, 3.23 ERA), Brandon Beachy has now come back from Tommy John surgery, taken 2014 to recuperate, and made one start with the Dodgers (4.0 IP, 3 ER). And now he's back against the only other team he's ever known, against a guy who...has only pitched in the majors for one team, the Braves. (Wisler was once a Padres prospect.)

The Braves may be 43-49 and seven games back of the Nationals in the NL East, but Wisler has always been full of confidence. So will Wisler come out brash and be Harper-esque tonight? Don't make me get your mother involved, Matt!

I really want to like Bryce Harper. I mean, the kid has such mad game but... just who the fuck does that snot nosed little bastard think he is??? Talking trash about Zack Greinke?? Sponge Worthy?? Sorry Bryce, talent doesn't get you a free pass on being a stupid ass.

Orel said...

Karen, you might have to change your initials to SWW.

karen said...

Orel...I know, I guess I got a little irate there!!

Orel said...

Ugh

karen said...

Markakis hits a 2 run shot off Beachy to center proving my theory that the only ones Joc doesn't seem to catch are out of the park (except that one time!!)

Orel said...

23-pitch 1st inning for Beachy

Orel said...

Sue Falsone is at the game...as a fan

Steve Sax said...

why do we have to like Bryce Harper?

spank said...

Gandalf gets knocked the fuck out and Ellis is the one who ends up on the DL. alrighty then.

spank said...

karen said...

Yep...another Pederson gem in center...

Orel said...

Dodger bats can't anything going but Beachy has settled down

karen said...

SHIT SHIT SHIT 4-zip bravos

Orel said...

Never mind. 4-0 Braves

Orel said...

IBB followed by the unintentional BB to the pitcher. Always a good idea

karen said...

AGONE!!!! Boys all tied up at 4!!

karen said...

I just love the Agon / JT celebratory selfies...

Orel said...

Wow, that was fast

Orel said...

Now begins the wear and tear on the bullpen

karen said...

I wonder if our pitching would be looking this bad if it wasn't coming on the heels of the Clayton, Sponge Worthy masterpieces...

I'm thinking yeah, it would

karen said...

VERY short lived tie...5-4 Bad Guys...

Natives doing the tomahawk chop...I just hate that crap

Orel said...

I enjoyed that brief period of not losing.

karen said...

2nd and 3rd with no outs for bravos...bullpen imploding right on schedule

karen said...

7-4, defense looking really ugly

Orel said...

Ugh

karen said...

Peralta makes 6 pitches and gives up 2 runs...

Fred's Brim said...

Sunt Rust

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

dumb
fucking
game

go to hell

Steve Sax said...

@FB my feed must be slow, I've got bases loaded and none out in the top of the ninth?

Steve Sax said...

wait a minute, my gameday is jacked up, bases can't be loaded

Steve Sax said...

is "in play, run(s)" correct?

Steve Sax said...

oh shit, there we go. 7-5 final. Thanks, GameDay.

Steve Sax said...

Padres have two on and one out, bottom 1

Steve Sax said...

SD opens up a 4-2 lead, B6 (man on first with two out and Kemp up)

Steve Sax said...

I wouldn't be able to make this up. From Gameday:

"Matt Kemp singles on a line drive to right fielder Hunter Pence. Matt Kemp out at first, right fielder Hunter Pence to shortstop Brandon Crawford to first baseman Brandon Belt."

Way to kill the rally, Bison

Steve Sax said...

4-2 SD, B7. Gyorko with a leadoff double. Gotta hop
