Post-Game 118 Thread: Rock(ing) Steady

DODGERS 2, REDS 1

While most of the Sons (and friends of Sons) were recovering from hangovers, the Dodgers went out and took the series from Cincinnati by beating the Reds 2-1 on a Sunday afternoon. Zack Greinke was on as usual, 7.0 IP with 6 H and only 1 ER, a sacrifice fly yielded to Billy Hamilton in the fifth. But Greinke came out in the bottom of the fifth and followed Joc Pederson's 23 HR (a solo shot) with a HR of his own, his second, a no doubt shot which even had a Greinke-like bat flip at the end.

The Nationals rolled over against the Giants and played dead, allowing the Giants to win four in a row as the Nats descended below .500. But the Dodgers have a three-game win streak of our own, so our lead remains at 2.5 games in the West. Rock steady, boys!

Now Bad Company's Rock Steady is a great song. You swung and missed on this one.

@neeebs, please see GT for rationale on PGT theme

@Saxy: I know, I know, but for me.......It's all about the music!!!!! And...with "Bad Company" there are plenty of witticisms to go around.

No hate, only love for my boy Saxy.

@neeebs: fair point. I have to say, I was conflicted by the Gwen Stefani reference in the first place when writing the GT, because the pun was a stretch. So you're right, this could have been avoided.

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened.
