Orel said...

Turner's two-out triple is wasted in the 1st

karen said...

3-0 Reds with no outs in first

Alex Cora said...

Bud is sucking it up. Another bullpen game Dave!

Fred's Brim said...

Get an out, asshole!

Fred's Brim said...

Sgonna be one of those games, isn't it? I think we've left 12 men in scoring position in 3 innings

karen said...

FB...Yeah, and we'll lose by one run.

Steve Sax said...

Bud Norris sucks

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

No skyline chili for Bud Norris tonight.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

6 zip reds

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kennedy keeps saying this game is far from over. Guess he's right, technically, but...

Orel said...

I thought these were the teams we were supposed to beat?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kennedy says Dodgers have their pitcher on the ropes, so a win is still possible.

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck
Off

Fred's Brim said...

For chrissakes JT, that was in the glove before you even thought of swinging

Fred's Brim said...

Jesus shit, Reddick is such a waste right now, he probably couldn't hit a homer off Baez

Fred's Brim said...

Are the Giants leading the west yet? Shitass Mets

Fred's Brim said...

FB furious

Fred's Brim said...

The Reds uniforms: if the Padres Sunday uniforms ate and shat out a little league team's uniforms

Fred's Brim said...

Why am I watching this? WKRPuke in Cincinnati

Fred's Brim said...

Good lord your are terrible, Pedro

Fred's Brim said...

Cincinnati PA guy playing The Who. Too soon if you ask me

Fred's Brim said...

May as well let Baez just finish the game

Orel said...

Goodbye, first place

Fred's Brim said...

Shitass Mets

Orel said...

GAME 2
Kendrick LF
Hernandez 2B
Gonzalez 1B
Turner 3B
Segedin RF
Pederson CF
Ellis C
Taylor SS
Anderson P

Orel said...

NYM 8, SF 5, bot 8

Orel said...

Fuck, it's Brett Anderson pitching

Orel said...

And it's 4-0 Reds before an out is recorded

Josh S. said...

We picked a hell of a time to start sucking again.

Josh S. said...

Maybe they should just put Anderson and McCarthy in charge of Dodgers Twitter and send a pitching machine out there.

Hideo Nomo said...

You tell 'em!

Orel said...

5-0. This is embarrassing

Orel said...

They had the runner picked off AND STILL COULD NOT GET HIM OUT

Orel said...

Wait — review reverses the call. I RETRACT MY OUTRAGE

Orel said...

Don't worry, Giants. We got your back

Fred's Brim said...

jesus fuck

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dodger starters looking about as good as this new quarterback for the Rams. Goff did play football in college right? I mean, they didn't just pluck some douchebro off the beach at Santa Cruz, right?

karen said...

Happy Sunday all!

Is it our turn to win yet??

karen said...

Chutley goes yard to open the game...1-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Urias en fuego el dia de hoy

rbnlaw said...

This Justin Turner kid might just work out at third.

rbnlaw said...

Hey, we plated a run. Hmmm. Plated runs. . .

Orel said...

Hey, we're winning!

rbnlaw said...

Urias strong; bullpen effective so far; decent run support. So, they didn't leave everything in Philly?

Good.

BTW, Orel (on the broadcast) keeps on dropping F-bombs on the Gnats. Has said "Frisco" at least 6 times. Good on him.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

KJ look OK after 8 day no play

rbnlaw said...

I'll say

rbnlaw said...

Hiyooooo! .5 up

karen said...

WIN!!

Orel said...

WIN

Steve Sax said...

Giants lose on national television. Dodgers back to a half-game up!

spank said...

orale

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

G'morning. Am I late for team stretching?

Johnny Blanchard said...

no, get your bloody mary and head out to the field

Orel said...

GAME 4
Utley 2B
Seager SS
Gonzalez 1B
Grandal C
Pederson CF
Kendrick LF
Toles RF
Segedin 3B
Kazmir P

Orel said...

boom
boom
BOOM

Orel said...

It's like the Brett Anderson game in reverse!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

And that's you start off a Monday morning!

Orel said...

4-0 after half an inning

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

too many bloodies for andrew toles... they gotta cut him off.

Steve Sax said...

And Kazmir quickly works to give the lead back

Johnny Blanchard said...

Kazmir might be the mythical beast "Pitchethtothescore".

Steve Sax said...

Kazmir walks Bailey on five pitches. Well done, Scott

Steve Sax said...

tying run at the plate for the reds, B2 (two out)

Steve Sax said...

Hamilton flies to center for the third out.

4-1 LA through 2. Kazmir at 40 pitches; Bailey at 47.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Pitchethtothescore sensed Bailey was drawing up his Batman skills and deftly avoided him.

Steve Sax said...

Pederson singles to lead off the third, and then Roberts runs a hit-and-run with Kendrick at the plate, and Pederson takes third! None out.

Steve Sax said...

We gotta score more because Kazmir is still pitching

Steve Sax said...

Toles 2016: 13-for-41 with 9 Ks

Steve Sax said...

Toles with a RBI single, Kendrick to third!

5-1 LA

Johnny Blanchard said...

Do not worry, Pitchethtothescore has summoned the spirit of Jack Morris's mustache and will give up no more runs than should be giveth. It is written the Dodgers shall not do less than splitteth with the team from zinzinnati.

Steve Sax said...

6-1 on the Segedin sac fly. Bailey chased with one out in the third.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Kazmir is doing his best to give this game back to Reds

MR.F said...

Yawn, morning baseball.

Steve Sax said...

6-3 and Kazmir doesn't even have eight outs yet (neither did Bailey). Seriously, this is pathetic, Scott.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Whoo time for a strikeout! One per game whether pitchethtothescore needs it or not

Steve Sax said...

6-4, Kazmir is useless. Only two out, again two on

Steve Sax said...

Kazmir out, Chavez in, third out finally achieved.

6-4 LA through three.

Kazmir got only one more out than Bailey.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Rock the Kazmir

Fred's Brim said...

it is really astonishing how bad our starting pitching has been the last month or 2. How many times have they failed to make even 4 or 5 innings? It feels like in a must-win game in the playoffs when a starter has a shaky start and the manager gets scared and pulls him early thinking the bullpen will somehow be better. But like every night.

Steve Sax said...

Geez. It's now 6-5 on the Votto double. One out. We suck.

Fred's Brim said...

maybe lets start pitching around Joey Votto, huh?

Fred's Brim said...

The bloom is off the Jesse Chavez rose

MR.F said...

Ugh, Kazmir

Johnny Blanchard said...

Checking in--still winning. That's what I figured. I think the sacred text said something about double digits in the zinzinnati.

Steve Sax said...

For whom the bell TOLES!!!!

HR makes it 8-5 LA. Wow we needed that

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

thank you Andrew Toles

Steve Sax said...

Segedin back-to-back HR makes it 9-5 LA

Steve Sax said...

still none out in the top of the fifth.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

thank you, Mr. Segedin

Fred's Brim said...

Jesus, everybody (except Josh Reddick of course) is getting into the action

Steve Sax said...

Reddick has done NOTHING for us

Fred's Brim said...

Time for Reddick to shave that mop.
But that didn't really help Kiké did it?
Maybe dread it up like John Jaso

Fred's Brim said...

holy christ, gotta keep scoring!

Steve Sax said...

Seager HR! 11-5 LA.

If not for Reddick, we'd be on fire this half-inning

Steve Sax said...

It could be time for Reddick to shave everywhere

Fred's Brim said...

how were we so nutless in the first 2 games of this series?

Steve Sax said...

i'm talking about armpits

Fred's Brim said...

or dread everywhere, gotta give the guy some options

Fred's Brim said...

holy lord, AG

Fred's Brim said...

what a stupid game

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon as well! What the hell is going on here

12-5 LA

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I guess they found the bag of whooping sticks! Thank goodness cuz our pitching needs a pick me up.

Steve Sax said...

Grandal pulls a Reddick and gets out

Steve Sax said...

Pederson's up, so we've batted around

Steve Sax said...

Pederson with the third out. Four HR, six runs, nine batters.

12-5 LA, through 4.5

Fred's Brim said...

Orel seems to be away so I'll say it: I predict 12-5 is not the final score

Fred's Brim said...

We need a shutdown inning from our bullpen now, one where we only give up 2-3 runs

MR.F said...

lol

Fred's Brim said...

everybody not named Josh Reddick who has batted today has gotten at least one hit, even Kazmir

Fred's Brim said...

Pedro Baez, our 6th inning mop-up set-up guy

Fred's Brim said...

STOP PITCHING TO VOTTO

spank said...

Baez sucks balls. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Steve Sax said...

Baez being Baez...two runs in already in the bottom of the sixth (12-7 right now, and a four-pitch walk to Phillips)

Fred's Brim said...

THROW STRIKES STUPID

Steve Sax said...

@FB: I predict 12-7 is not the final score, either

Steve Sax said...

3-1 count to Schebler. Not looking promising, Pedro

Steve Sax said...

....AAAAAAAnd, Pedro walks him. First and second, two out.

PULL HIM, DAVE

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Baez needs to join Puig on the AAA party bus!

Steve Sax said...

Baez and Kazmir need to get in a ice bath together.

And spoon

spank said...

Wow! Baez didn't even last an inning in a blowout. What a bloody shame he is.

Steve Sax said...

Adrian Gonzalez is so locked in, it is crazy. 15-7 LA on the 3-run A-Gon HR

Fred's Brim said...

AG AGAIN!

Fred's Brim said...

7 RBI!

MR.F said...

This is nuts

Fred's Brim said...

sweet jesus, Yas joining the parade

Steve Sax said...

Grandal gets one! 16-7

Steve Sax said...

Save some offense for the Giants and Cubs, guys

Steve Sax said...

You know what they say: batting wins championships

Fred's Brim said...

gritty home run hitting wins championships too

Fred's Brim said...

get it in gear, Joc! You've only got one more hit than Josh Reddick today

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers runs by inning:
4 0 2 0 6 0 4
Really weird, all even numbers, and also every other inning.

That means in the ninth inning, we're either scoring 10 runs, or 2 runs

Steve Sax said...

Howell quickly puts two on with none out in the bottom of the seventh

Steve Sax said...

ok to be fair, Tucker Barnhart reached on an error by Kike

Fred's Brim said...

WALK VOTTO

Steve Sax said...

to repeat other people: let's not pitch to Votto (who is a HR short of the cycle)

Steve Sax said...

hey, we got Votto out!

16-7 LA through 7

Fred's Brim said...

OH MY GOD GUYS, YOU'LL NEVER GUESS WHAT HAPPENED
actually you won't, Votto grounded out for the 3rd out

Fred's Brim said...

there's a very real chance we don't score 16 runs total in the 6 games vs SF and Chi

Fred's Brim said...

Is JP really batting?

Fred's Brim said...

technically yes, but not really

Steve Sax said...

whoops, Seager broke up the pattern, as we score in the top of the eighth.

17-7

Steve Sax said...

18-7 on the A-Gon RBI

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon today: 3-for-6 with 8 RBI

Fred's Brim said...

AG you hunk of shit, hit a homer!

Fred's Brim said...

Take us home, Bud

if that is your real name...

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Bud Bundy, keep this a 10-run game

Fred's Brim said...

about to use our 7th pitcher of the game

MR.F said...

sooo ridic

Fred's Brim said...

Fields doesn't want to get into that nice air-conditioned locker room

Fred's Brim said...

Peraza making it known we shouldn't have traded him.
Shebler will probably hit a home run this inning, too. Then we'll get Kenley up

Fred's Brim said...

Hamilton should try for a straight steal of home

Fred's Brim said...

RBI groundout for Votto, probably the best possible outcome

Fred's Brim said...

4 fucking hours

Fred's Brim said...

YAY WINZ, now I am hot and tired and I want to go home

Johnny Blanchard said...

MMM. Offense. I like it.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Johnny Blanchard digs the long ball

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Hope the airline doesn't lose the lumber bag on the flight home. The boys need to annihilate the Giants, really beat the snot out of them!

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Goerge Takei had this to say about A-Gon's game. "Oh My!"

and "Sulu is not Gay"
