Game 37 Thread: May 14 vs. Cardinals, 6p

Scott Kazmir (2-3, 5.54) vs. Carlos Martinez (4-2. 2.51).

Carlos Martinez has lost 15 pounds in the 10 days he was ill due to respiratory illness, which ended up cutting short his last outing over a week ago. Scott Kazmir, on the other hand, is just a bad pitcher.

We Sons had been hoping this game was going to get rained out, hence the late posting of the GT. But here we are, ready for the Cardinals to even the series (and drop us out of first place; Giants already up 1-0 on the Diamondbacks in the first). Sigh.

We're late on this GT, so the lineup has already been posted:

  • Utley, 2B
  • Seager, SS
  • Turner, 3B
  • Gonzalez, 1B
  • Grandal, C
  • Pederson, CF
  • Puig, RF
  • Crawford, LF
  • Kazmir, P

A-Gon: 1-for-12 career vs. Martinez, one of A-Gon's ten worst pitchers to face (n>10).

C'mere still has not won a game at DS. Is tonight the night??


Yeah, right. Have another drink MKW.

karen said...

Cardinal D is dope again tonight.

"Cardinals go down 1-2-3 in the first, much to the relief of Kazmir."

Vin Scully's words. Not mine!

Steve Sax said...

Seager GIDP erases Utley, who reached on an error.

0-0 through 1

Steve Sax said...

3Ks for Kazmir through two.

0-0, mid-2

@Saxy

Those were Vin's words but you know we were all thinking it!

Steve Sax said...

Puig taketh (great fly ball catch on Momina); Puig giveth away (GIDP with two on). Dammit

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Kazmir.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Man, Crawford has no arm whatsoever anymore.

karen said...

Bases juiced for Corey...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Now'd be a good time for Turner to break out of his slump.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Looks like 50,000-plus at The Stadium tonight.

karen said...

4-uno Blue going to 6.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Now how does Kazmir pitch after sitting down for nearly half an hour.

Steve Sax said...

Martinez chased. 4-1 LA

Steve Sax said...

@Cliff: the question is, how does kazmir pitch at all

karen said...

We all know that I am way above judging people but doesn't this new RedTurd pitcher look a bit inbred??

No judgement though....

i'm chasing this beer with some whiskey

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kazmir's only given up two hits through seven...I feel like I should go buy a lottery ticket.

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Karen: Someone in Keikheffer's family definitely makes a living selling bathtub moonshine. No judgement though...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Seager Bomb!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I love Grandal, but for a catcher he's awfully lippy with the umpires.

karen said...

OMG OMG OMG Is he going to pitch a complete game win?????????????

I'm a little scared...

karen said...

Did I jinx him?? Was C'mere pitching a CG the equivalent to a no hitter?

QuadSevens said...

So close Kaz! It's Kenley time.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kenley says fuck this shit. Game over.

karen said...

Phew....Kenley saves it.

Was able to at least see the 9th on KODI for Amazon Fire TV Stick. Thanks again, Time Warner. Was pulling for SK, but still better than the norm. 8 2/3, only 2 ER. Pipe shot, looking to end it with Jansen. All in all a good day.

QuadSevens said...

Second win in a row against the Shards. I love it!

Steve Sax said...

Awesome. Will get the PGT up shortly.

Steve Sax said...

PGT is UP, baby
