Game 157 Thread: Sept. 29 @ Giants, 7p


Clayton Kershaw (15-7, 2.25) vs. Madison Bumgarner (18-8, 2.88)

Take 2...

So, it's come to this, huh? Despite plenty of chances to have this thing closed out before this series, the Dodgers roll into are still in Frisco needing one win out of four to clinch the NL West. I'm certain we were all hoping this would be long done by now, but alas, it was not to be.

There are some upsides to this scenario, though. First, the Dodgers are throwing co-ace Greinke Kershaw against a perfectly an occasionally beatable Peavy Bumgarner tonight, meaning this might not drag on much longer. Second, Enrique Hernandez is back. That might not seem like that big of a deal, but it will be was helpful to have the human rally banana around, should when the Dodgers manage managed to fall behind. And last, but in no way least, when the Dodgers seal the deal in SF, Vin Scully will be there to call it. Eh, never mind that last one.

OK kids, here we go...again. Cross your fingers, clench your cheeks, and pray to your relevant deities...again. This one's gonna be...also something!

Kershaw gets out of a jam to end the 3rd still leading 2-0.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Greg said...

Is someone going to choke that annoying woman who screams after every bgarner strike?

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw is working at the plate. He sees 13 pitches before grounding out.

QuadSevens said...

Kike reaches in a throwing error by Devil.

QuadSevens said...

Howie with a single now. Two on for AGon with two out. 97 pitches for Snotgarner in the 5th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dodgers making bumfucker make pitches. Kershaw alone takes 13, and his pitch count is already up to 97.

QuadSevens said...

We leave 'em there but Snotty is looking pissed and we have a lead. 2-0 going to the bottom of the 5th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kershaw strikes out the side. 2-0 Dodgers through 5.

Paul said...

*streaks*

Orel said...

This is heresy but...should Donnie pull Kershaw?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Siddown, Crawford! 5 away.

Dusty Baker said...

I like how that last batter just sort of wiggled and dipped then stood there while a nice breaking ball whizzed by.

Dusty Baker said...

12 Ks for Clay and it seems like he didn't strike anyone out until mid-game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! That breaking ball to Parker...holy cats. 12 strikeouts for Kid K. 3 outs away.

Paul said...

No explotative money grab playoff spot for Frisco this year!

Cliff Beefpile said...

And now a ton more blue in the seats behind home plate. San Franciscans are leaving in droves to wax their hipster moustaches and hang their fedoras.

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw is coming out for the 9th. Donnie lost the battle tonight, if there was one.

Steve Sax said...

why is kershaw bothering with the ninth

Cliff Beefpile said...

Strikeout number 13. Two outs away.

Steve Sax said...

two out!
