Series Thread (Games 75-77): June 23-25 vs Rockies

It's the battle for first place! The Dodgers are currently atop the NL West with a 48-26 record and the Rox and Snakes are tied for second place, both teams 1.5 games back. (Like the Dodgers, the Snakes are also 9-1 in their last ten games — what's up with that?) Anyhoo, we have our three best pitchers going this series, away from the Kemp-killing bandbox that is Coors Field. Dodgers have won seven straight. Let's make it eight.

Fri, 7p: Alex Wood vs Kyle Freeland

Sat, 7p: Clayton Kershaw vs Tyler Chatwood

Sun, 1p: Brandon McCarthy vs German Marquez

note: this series thread is late because Sax hit the wrong button. Sorry.

Game 1: Win! Alex Wood looked good again! And Puig with a home run! Seager left the game early with hamstring cramping.

Steve Sax said...

Game 2: Win! Clayton Kershaw struggled through the first inning but escaped, and the Dodgers scored four to win 4-0. Stop reaching over the walls on balls in play, you idiots (unless it shortchanges the opponents).

Game 3: Seager still out and Puig resting his hammy as well.

QuadSevens said...

McCarthy has two walks and three wild pitches in the second to put the Rockies on the board.

QuadSevens said...

Logan at first goes for a grounder he should have left for the second baseman, everybody safe.

QuadSevens said...

Sac fly and a basehit later and it's now 3-0 Purple guys.

Boys trying to mount a come back after scary revisit of last years yips for McCarthy.

QuadSevens said...

Kiké and Bellinger with bombs! 5-4 Rockies in the bottom of the third.

QuadSevens said...

Just saw a replay of Bellinger's home run and the follow through on his swing reminds me of Piazza's.

Mike Freeman??

QuadSevens said...

According to twitter, Freeman up means Seager to the DL soon.

karen said...

Well crap.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Kinda surprised Puig isn't going to the 10-day DL given his history of hamstring pulls.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I wonder if we'll get a chance to see Verdugo or Calhoun this season.

karen said...

7-6 Blue!!!

karen said...

5 Dodgers runs on 4 WPs.

Belli brings score to 11-6 with 2 run blast

Cliff Beefpile said...

Thanks, Rockies. We'll take first place from here. Oh, and here's your ass on a platter!

Cliff Beefpile said...

After all those years of watching sloths like Karros, Piazza, Ethier, and AGon, I'm still getting used to seeing speed, athleticism, and awesome baserunning. It's so much more fun.

QuadSevens said...

That was one crazy game! I love it!

QuadSevens said...

David Vassegh had the wrong guess at Seager to the DL. Apparently it was Gutierrez who went on the DL instead.
