Series Thread (Games 134-136): Sept 2-4 vs Padres

Puig's back!

9/2, 7p: Julio Urias (5-2, 3.71) vs Clayton Richard (1-3, 3.51)
PADRES 4, DODGERS 2

9/3, 6p: Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09) vs Luis Perdomo (7-7, 5.84)
DODGERS 5, PADRES 1

9/4, 1p: Jose De Leon (0-0, -.--) vs Christian Friedrich (4-10, 4.84)
DODGERS 7, PADRES 4. De Leon (W): 6.0 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 9 K, 0 BB. Puig: 3-run HR

The Dodgers start this series in first place by 2.5 games, thanks to the Giants' second straight loss to the Cubs on Friday. Joining the team for this homestand are some new old faces, such as Puig, and just plain new faces, like De Leon. This is the soft part of the schedule — time to strike!

Urias hits two batters in the 1st but escapes

Puig first-pitch swinging. Glad to see he learned his lesson

Orel said...

Puig second-pitch swinging leaves the bases loaded in his second AB

Orel said...

Puig's first single is with the bases empty

Orel said...

All the wasted opportunities come back to bite the Dodgers in the ass. 2-1 Pads

Orel said...

Joc HR ties it up!

Orel said...

4-2 Pads in the 8th

Orel said...

13 hits and 2 runs. That last Colorado game masked the fact that this team is struggling

Hey let's win tonight, huh?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Giants win, Cubbies now merely 39 games over .500

Need a win tonight! Hope Rich Hills blister is up for the task

12 more home games with Vin (plus last 3 in frisco). I feel shame for admitting my incredible weakness here but i am already crying. I love this man. He has been the voice of my life for 55 years and letting him go is shattering to me.

I think it's time that we sons and daughters show him how very much he has meant to we many generations by telling him goodbye and doing it from our hearts.

I feel like I'm losing a member of my family. I hope Vin and Sandy have a beautiful retirement and please, please, please don't be a stranger at the ballpark.

Thank you Vin you and our Dodgers have spent some of my greatest moments with my family and me.

Orel said...

Beautifully put, Karen. I have to admit I'm still in denial about the end of Vin's tenure and am not collected enough for coherent thoughts about the topic just yet. But I feel everything you feel.

Former Padres unite! AGon RBI-single and Grandal 3-run HR make it 4-0 Dodgers!

QuadSevens said...

Hill finally gives up a hit in the 6th. He's got 8 strikeouts so far.

Orel said...

REDDICK HR!

QuadSevens said...

That one got out in a hurry!

QuadSevens said...

5-1 in the ninth and KJ is coming in to finish this game off.

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers win!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Make party!

What's the over/under on Vinny dropping some historical knowledge on Ponce De Leon? Pull up a chair for your fourth grader. It's gonna be a good one.

Fred's Brim said...

Good call, DBT!

Orel said...

Puig 3-run HR!

Orel said...

Cubs tie it up in the 9th

QuadSevens said...

Puig was talking to De Leon after he gave up the homer. I wonder if he told him, "Don't worry. I get it back for you!"

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

These OKC Dodgers ain't too shabby... DeLeon, Puig, Culberson. Bring home the W boys!

Booze Status: Lucky Duck Agave Ale. Not bad.

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Padres signed Detlef Schrempf?

Orel said...

Dodgers-Padres tied in the 5th; Giants-Cubs tied in the 11th

Orel said...

@CB: Yes, to play Detlef field

Cliff Beefpile said...

Chutley ties it up! Aroldis Chapman blows away Belt and Pence. And Grandal comes up with a base hit for the lead! 5-4 Blue

Cliff Beefpile said...

Brandon "Greasy Hair" Crawford strikes out to end the threat in the top of the 12th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Detlef Field. Why I oughtta...

Beer check: Sam Oktoberfest

Cliff Beefpile said...

Down go Span and Panic and Busty Poser. Bottom of the 13th coming up, still 2-2.
