Series Thread (Games 56-58): June 2-4 @ Brewers

Mr. Met has raised the mascot stakes. Whatcha got, Bernie Brewer???

Splitting the series in St. Louis should have been just a push, however ending our six-game win streak, plus dropping the last two games in absolutely anemic fashion, has us going into 29-25 Milwaukee with some concern. In addition, the Dodgers have dropped back into third place behind both Colorado and Arizona.

This series has a lot of early start times (which get earlier through the weekend). So let's get animated!

Fri, 5p: Clayton Kershaw (7-2, 2.37) vs. Jimmy Nelson (3-3, 3.83)
LAD 2, MIL 1

Sat, 1p: Rich Hill (2-2, 4.09) vs. Matt Garza (2-2, 3.98)
LAD 10, MIL 8. Chris Taylor 9th-inning go-ahead grand slam!

Sun, 11a: Kenta Maeda (4-2, 5.21) vs. Zach Davies (5-3, 5.18)
MIL 3, LAD 0

Kershaw will have all the Ks, please and thank you

Orel said...

Cody with the 12th-inning go-ahead HR!

Steve Sax said...

And rocks and snakes both lost. We are back in first place baby

Steve Sax said...

We win in 12, and yet we have no comments

Steve Sax said...

I'm on a flight listening to this game. We are down 2-1 in the third, with the Brewers' runs coming off a Kike error and a Hill wild pitch. Yay.

Steve Sax said...

Utley scores in the third when the Brewers botch a double play. 2-2

Steve Sax said...

2-2 through 2.5

Orel said...

Whoops. 3-2 Brewers on a solo HR by Villar

Steve Sax said...

Hill grooves run for a HR. It's 3-2 Brewers through three

Steve Sax said...

Hey Orel! What's going on down there

Steve Sax said...

Kike fucking swinging on 3-0 and pops to the infield. Idiot

Orel said...

Don't know who was more surprised by the Dodgers' double steal: Charley or the Brewers

Steve Sax said...

Garda is now a mess so they will walk Puig (Bellinger and Taylor advanced anyway on the double steal, and Garda is having trouble finding the strike zone)

Orel said...

You're not missing anything at ground level, Sax. It's still all dirt and oxygen.

Orel said...

Rich Hill can't bunt

Steve Sax said...

With Garza pitching wild, why is rich hill swinging with the bases loaded?!

Orel said...

This is setting up for another Dodgers special

Orel said...

Utley displaying that non-Hill patience

Steve Sax said...

Blister boy pops up his two-strike hunt. What the fuck is up with our RISP approach here, guys

Steve Sax said...

^two-strike bunt

Orel said...

Steve Sax said...

Fucking A. What a horrible approach this inning. MIL 3-2, going to B4

Steve Sax said...

Air is pretty thin up here, Orel

Steve Sax said...

Sounds like my radio feed is pretty late, as well

Steve Sax said...

Rick Monday says Jonathan broxton was released.

3-2 Mil through four

Steve Sax said...

I'm so high in the atmosphere, I can't even feel the climate change here

Steve Sax said...

Brewers already going to the pen for the fifth

Steve Sax said...

Seater grounds out for the first out. When is he going to start hittting again

Steve Sax said...

I'm trying to do this kenken puzzle in the NYT, but they keep bringing me food courses. It's annoying

Steve Sax said...

Still 3-2 through 5

Steve Sax said...

Puig AB allows a RBI WP and a RBI single! 4-3 LA.

And the in-flight wifi sucks!

Orel said...

Wait we're winning now?

Orel said...

I'm trying to do the can-can down here, and nobody is bringing me food.

Orel said...

Hatcher pitches a clean 6th!

Orel said...

Former Dodger Edison Volquez no-hits the Snakes!

Orel said...

Hatcher leaves the bases loaded, Fields in to save the day

Orel said...

We are no longer winning

Orel said...

Brewers are trying to give it back. Two on, one out for the Dodgers in the 9th

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Orel said...

Bases-loaded walk makes it 8-6 Brewers. Still only one out...

Orel said...

TAYLOR GRAND SLAM!!!

Orel said...

Kenley making an unscheduled appearance after pitching two innings yesterday

Orel said...

Unbelievably, WIN

QuadSevens said...

The comeback in the 9th was awesome! CT3 with his second grand slam of the year!

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow that was huge.

And Real Madrid wins as well! Great day.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Bernie brewer is a fool. He deserved this to happen

Orel said...

GAME 3

Taylor CF
González 1B
Bellinger LF

Orel said...

And Maeda gives up another 1st-inning run, this one on a Thames HR

Orel said...

C'mon Kenta get it together

Orel said...

Maeda lasted four whole innings!

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Milwaukee in the eighth. Not good

Steve Sax said...

Meanwhile, Snakes and Giants each lost. Rockies still 0-0 vs Padres, B2

Steve Sax said...

Rockies up 3-1, bottom 9 for padres.
