Game 70 Thread: June 18 vs. Brewers. 7p

Mike Bolsinger (1-4, 5.76) vs. Chase Anderson (4-6, 4.42).

Do you like narratives? Because the narrative for tonight's game is how two guys who have known each other since they were 15-year-olds growing up near Dallas are now facing each other in a major-league game. Mike was Chase's best man at his wedding, and Chase was in Mike's wedding party. What's the matter, Mike? Chase not good enough to be your best man? Sure, you probably had a brother who was your best man but if the Brewers win tonight, it's on you, Mike.

Yesterday I was able to catch the audio over mlb.com radio in the depths of my prison cell. Hope Turner stays hot today

Here's an article about Anderson / Bolsinger's chumminess, fyi

Steve Sax said...

Bolsinger's brother is no Chase Andreson

Steve Sax said...

Bolsinger's shoutout doesn't get through the first inning. 1-0 with a man on second and two out

Steve Sax said...

Bolsinger ain't fooling anyone. 1-0 Milwaukee, mid-1

karen said...

I am really feeling Saxy's frustration and pain. First of all to be confined to what I can only imagine is a prison somewhere in Syria as a guest of Isis but even worse he's having to watch this not very good team to pass the time.

1- 0 Beer Team B1.

Steve Sax said...

Anderson is equally lame. Turner walks, AGon doubles him over to third, and hen Thompson with a base hit to center scoring Turner. AGon tried to score as well and was thrown out at the plate by a mile.

1-1 through 1

karen said...

JT scores to tie the game...Hwever Agon is thrown out at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

Bollinger sucks so bad. Get rid of this guy

Steve Sax said...

Brewers have six hits and five outs. We are lucky not to be down by 24 runs.

Get rid of Bolsinger

karen said...

Bolsinger is at 66 pitches with 1 out two on T3


Oh yay.

Steve Sax said...

Can we please fucking get rid of Bolsinger

Steve Sax said...

5-2 mil and we aren't out of the third

Steve Sax said...

I am clanging my tin cup against my prison bars

karen said...

Now 5-2 still 1 out, 2 on and 71 pitches I3

karen said...

^^Top 3

karen said...

The bad news is we're down 5-2.

The good news is Bolsinger might be hurt.

karen said...

JT goes yard to tie her up at 5-5.

karen said...

7-5 Blue in B3.

Steve Sax said...

What's up with Turner's helmet, it just says "J" rather than LA. Funny, but also not so cool.

Turner with a hit to advance Seager to third, but Seager holds there. 9-5 Dodgers with men at the corners and none out, B6

2 years ago today Clayton pitched his no-hitter. I always tear up when they show highlights of that game because I love Kid K. But more importantly it was just amazing because my Mom who had dementia was totally clear and knew exactly what was going on as we watched the game together. She was gone just 6 weeks later. I know it was a blessing from God that we had that one last moment of clarity and it was tied into our love for the Dodgers. I miss her daily.

Now back to this one...

Steve Sax said...

AGon with a single to center, so it's 10-5 LA

Steve Sax said...

nice memory karen, thanks for sharing. here's to your mom

Steve Sax said...

Kendrick GIDP to end the inning, but it's 10-5 LA through 6.

karen said...

Thanks Saxy.

Steve Sax said...

10-6 through 7. Braun has a solo HR vs. Casey Fien in the seventh.

Steve Sax said...

Liberatore in

Steve Sax said...

Liberatore Ks Nieuwenhuis for the first out, then Ks Ramon Flores for the second out.

Steve Sax said...

PH Keon Broxton, Ks on a foul tip. Liberatore Ks the side.

10-6 LA, mid-8

Steve Sax said...

Pederson is 3-for-4 tonight and his average is a paltry .239

Steve Sax said...

But I'm guessing he's sticking in the leadoff slot for a while

Steve Sax said...

Seager with a one-out single. And here's the red-hot Turner

Steve Sax said...

End 8, 10-6 LA
