Post-Game 71 Thread: Walk Off Walk

Sorry, Scooter.

DODGERS 2, BREWERS 1

The Dodgers' offense, exhausted from yesterday's output, went back to sleep in today's day-game hangover. But luckily, Kiké Hernandez unloaded a solo HR in the bottom of the eighth to tie the game at one. In the bottom of the ninth, one-out singles from Adrian Gonzalez and Trayce Thompson put two on; Joc Pederson Kd, but Howie Kendrick and Yasmani Grandal both walked to win the game. Tyler Thornburg had a horrible ninth inning for the Brewers, who dropped three of four to the Dodgers in this series.

Meanwhile, it was Kenta Maeda who kept us in this game: 6.1 IP, 6 H and 1 ER against 3 BB and 8 Ks. He did give up the first-inning HR to Scooter Gennett, and it is always embarrassing to be beaten by a muppet. However Maeda persisted, and kept the Dodgers in this game with this efforts.

A walk-off walk over a sub-.500 team isn't necessarily cause for celebration. But for those who braved the oppressive afternoon 99-degree heat today, they came away with a hard-fought victory...and hopefully unsoiled undies, as well.

Now, is there another game this evening to watch?

Bay Area has the Sharks in the finals; Penguins win.
Bay Area has the Warriors in the finals; Cavaliers win.

Holy shit, the Warriors only scored 15 points in the 4th quarter? I don't care for LeBron all that much, but I'm soooo glad the Bay Area blew both of these Final series. Otherwise we'd have to see a bunch of fuckin' articles about "How the Bay Area HACKED Sports!". Ted Talks from Joe Lacob and Brian Sabean or some shit.
