Game 104 Thread: August 1 vs. Angels, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (8-6, 2.51) vs. Andrew Heaney (5-0, 1.79)

Clayton in great form (despite the glute issue the past 48 hours nagging at him) on a nice Saturday at home against our rivals from that other county way over there? I'll take it! We'll chew bubble gum and kick Heaney.


Longtime SoSG friend Jason at this game, making his once-every-five-years appearance given that he lives in [redacted], so yours truly looks forward to having a "Diet Coke" with him and possibly spooning afterward. I'm planning to get there early to watch Kid warm up/long toss, because that's a show in and of itself. No truth to the rumor I'll be having pre-pre-game drinks at El Compadre on Sunset in 3...2...1...Also a shoutout to another longtime SoSG friend Steve "P. Ditty" Dittmore, who attended last night's game after working the Special Olympics in Los Angeles the past week. Here's to both of you for putting up with us for so long!

Same lineup as yesterday. Jo sits and thinks about what he's done.

Orel said...

Used up all his HRs in the derby.

karen said...

I'm still not used to the 'stros being an American League team...but sure am ecstatic that they are screwing with the OC team.

Jason said...

Ohhh, I merit the "long time friend" designation.

I'm already at the park doing my part to kill the long standing and inaccurate stereotype about when Dodgers fans arrive.

Felt a little sorry for Billy Ashley who's signing autographs out in left with no takers. I probably should have had him sign something just to keep him on his toes.

spank said...

that sucks about Billy Ashley. should have bought him a beer.

Orel said...

Here we go!

Old friend Shane Victorino leading off for the Angels

3 pitches, 1 out

Orel said...

9 pitches, 2 out

Orel said...

Siddown, MVP!

Orel said...

Kershaw strikes out Trout looking on a curveball. That's baseball porn right there

karen said...

MVP??? Doesn't MVP stand for Clayton Kershaw? Couldn't be another one.

Orel said...

Most Valuable Punchout

Orel said...

Dodgers at least making contact

Orel said...

I think the curve is working today

Orel said...

Pujols singles

Orel said...

Howie almost with the glove-flip DP!

Orel said...

Howie & Jimmy putting on a clinic!

karen said...

^^^Hoping the young 'uns are paying attention...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Our double-play combo is playing the kind of defense Kershaw and Greinke deserve!

karen said...

Sosh outta there!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Puig's hammy looks alright.

/knocks on wood

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO...for Clayton with two out

Orel said...

Kershaw at least makes contact!

karen said...

Anyone else leaving RISP and I gotta bitch...Kid gets a free pass.

Orel said...

I bet Greinke gives him shit for that AB

Orel said...

Clayton walks Aybar

Orel said...

1-3 DP!

karen said...

Beautiful!! Double up that rook at first!

Orel said...

Oops, Featherston was at first

karen said...

Orel...Sponge boy is allowed!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I was just typing a comment about how I love Howie, but that Heaney sure would look good in a Dodger uni. Then Heaney pops up the bunt and Howie's Johnny on the spot at first. Still, I wonder what how that would've turned out...

SIDDOWN,VICTORINO!

Orel said...

Sponge Boy!

Orel said...

I think every Dodger fan has thought that, CB. We love Howie but could you imagine Heaney in this rotation? Ugh

Orel said...

Scoreless after 3

Orel said...

Siddown, Albert!

Orel said...

Everybody's looking for the curve and Clayton sneaks a fastball by Aybar for strike three!

Orel said...

SVS single!

Orel said...

Both teams playing solid D

karen said...

Latos in the house...

Orel said...

Conflicting edits in this thread

karen said...

^^^Every time that happens to me, I assume you are, as usual, stealing my comment!! :)

Orel said...

Scoreless after 5

Orel said...

KKKKKK

Orel said...

Howie leads off the bottom of the 6th with a single

Orel said...

AGon single! Runners on the corners!

Steve Sax said...

Sax is awake! Men at corners with none out in the bottom of the sixth!

Cliff Beefpile said...

C'mon, SVS!

karen said...

RISP for SVS, Puig and Yaz....

Orel said...

Good morning, Sax!

Orel said...

DAMN I thought that was out!

Steve Sax said...

3-1 count to SVS

Cliff Beefpile said...

JUST missed a 3-run homer! Still, 1-0 Blue!

karen said...

One in....

Steve Sax said...

SVS sac fly; five more feet and it would have been a three-run HR

Heaney pulled for that?!

Orel said...

Heaney pulled after 97 pitches

Orel said...

Puig first-pitch swinging AGAIN

karen said...

Yep...first pitch swinging again

karen said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

YAS!

Cliff Beefpile said...

YAZ!

karen said...

Can't catch that one wannabe MVP...3-0 Blue

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Puig; new pitcher and you swing for that?! Fucking pathetic.

Trade him!

Oh wait

Steve Sax said...

Yasmani should make Puig take notes

Orel said...

It seems Sax's feed is a little behind

Steve Sax said...

My feed is sooooo alow

Steve Sax said...

Where has this Rollins guy been all year?

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Dodgers through seven

Jason said...

Kershaw out for the 9th, crowd goes nuts

Orel said...

I look forward to a flawless 9th from...Clayton?

Orel said...

There we go. I look forward to a flawless 9th from Kenley.

karen said...

Looks like that flawless 9th from Kenley dream of yours is alive....

karen said...

There's always tomorrow Orel....

karen said...

Orel...That's my best Scarlett O'Hara advice...Tomorrow is another day...

karen said...

Holy Shit

Orel said...

Still worrying about Kenley.

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 3m

Jim Johnson warming up again for Dodgers.

Orel said...

Kenley vs. Trout again...

Orel said...

Not this time!

Cliff Beefpile said...

DOWN goes Trout! Come on, Kenley!

karen said...

Now Albert...

spank said...

Gandalf is a G.

Orel said...

Win!

Cliff Beefpile said...

We win!

karen said...

How much is a girl expected to take????

We win but Oh My Gawd I wasn't sure I was going to make it...

spank said...

noice

Fred's Brim said...

WOOP
I thought Kenley did a nice job there to battle back. The walk was inexcusable but the hits were a well-placed grounder and a blooper off the end of the bat. Glad he could work through that

Steve Sax said...

Post-Game Thread Up! (and FB, I hadn't seen your comment but I'm already concerned about Kenley)
