Game 127 Thread: August 28 vs. Cubs, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (10-6, 2.29) vs. Jason Hammel (7-45, 3.35).

With Kershaw on the mound, immediately following his recent imploring of his teammates to play with greater urgency, I'm assuming we're going to get a pretty solid performance from our starter. The question is if our offense, without Howie Kendrick and potentially without Yasiel Puig and Adrian Gonzalez, can put up much resistance.

If we can just mark Hammel early in the game, we might be able to send the Cubs (who have a better record than the Dodgers, even though they're in third place and 8.5 games out) to their third straight loss. Look, it's not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters.

I'm a little surprised we haven't used the "Mark Hammel" joke before. We probably have.

What's the discussion with Mattingly? I have no radio.

QuadSevens said...

Mattingly was talking about the play at 2nd. The SS never touched the bag and I think he was asking for it to be reviewed. Neighborhood play.

Sup peeps. beer check Firestone Pale

Jason said...

Is it wrong I'm more excited about Vin coming back for another year than I am about Kershaw dominating a playoff contender?

Orel said...

Not at all, Jason!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Jason you can do wrong in these parts. Kershaw dominated, we won, Vinny is coming back. Life is good.
