YAY!! We're up just in time to see Ryu give up the 2 run dinger and our puny 1 run lead.

Orel said...

How we doin?

karen said...

We just tied the game 2-2. So I am prepared to say 'We're doin just fine'.

Kike puts us ahead 3-2.

karen said...

YES O YES! Matty hits a 3 run homer. 6-2 still no outs in 3rd

karen said...

Holy Moly Caped Crusader...Looks like Boys have gotten in touch with their inner Batman.

Orel said...

Are you Szczur about that?

Orel said...

MKWs happy tonight

karen said...

MKW is peaceful and content!!

karen said...

What did I miss? Why did Joc hit for Matty?

I'm not feeling so peaceful and content anymore.

A Dodgers official says Matt Kemp is not injured. Just some serious matchup baseballin' going on.

karen said...

Thanks Orel.

karen said...

Yaz's slam brings score to 10-2 in 9th.

Steve Sax said...

10-3 final. Sorry for not doing the series thread on time, this was my fault.

karen said...

We win!!!

...and an exhausted fan base staggers to our beds and dreams of the very real possibility of having a 500 team.

i'm gonna wrestle Karen in a steel cage for the MKW title.

Steve Sax said...

Kempy Kemp! Oh wait, you said that.

Steve Sax said...

@karen, oh that's sad about Barbara Bush. RIP.

karen said...

Spank....You'll lose!!

karen said...

@Saxy...She was my favorite First Lady.

karen said...

CHASE UTLEY Taking it for the team 200 times.

spank said...

@ Karen - i know but it would be fun.

spank said...

oh i almost forgot...Winnipeg Jets!!!

karen said...

Spank...te he he.

karen said...

Hooray Winnipeg! You won AND let Spanky see the game.

Steve Sax said...

@karen 7.23p: I was more of a Lou Hoover fan, but yeah, Barbara Bush was cool.

Steve Sax said...

baez has a good eighth!

Steve Sax said...

that was not a good pitch, Kenley.

3-2 LA, B9. No outs.

Steve Sax said...

Taylor fucking saves KJ's bacon with out #2

karen said...

Is anyone still watching this game? Kenley is going to be the death of me.

karen said...

Oh good Sax. I'm not alone here to witness this.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Having flashbacks of Jeff Shaw right now

Steve Sax said...

Kenley still blows the save with a balk and a 3-2 count meatball, for a double to right. 3-3 tie game.

karen said...

TIED. Winning run in scoring position

Steve Sax said...

Kenley is not fucking good at all.

Erin Scot said...

Wow. What is Kenley doing?

karen said...

Extras. We'll lose now in 10 or 11.

karen said...

Dusty and Erin in the house!! Hi guys!

Orel said...

Baez for closer?

Erin Scot said...

Hello, Karen.

Steve Sax said...

Hello, erin!

Steve Sax said...

(that rhymes)

Steve Sax said...

Kike with a one-out double

So we can't possibly GIDP, right?

Steve Sax said...

Belli pops foul to third. booooo

Grandal with 2 out

Steve Sax said...

strike 1 to Yaz. 0-1

Cliff Beefpile said...

So I was busy watching the Kings shart of an effort tonight, but apparently that saved me from having to watch Kenley blow a save? Against the friggin' Padres!?!? We just can't have nice things, can we?

Orel said...

noooooope

karen said...

This is just sickening.

Orel said...

Hi everyone whose name ends in N!

QuadSevens said...

Right there with ya Cliffy.

Steve Sax said...

Chicken Strips gives up a leadoff walk, in a 3-3 tie B10

QuadSevens said...

Chicken Strip with the leadoff walk. Not a good start.

QuadSevens said...

That was a crappy missed call ump!

Steve Sax said...

Okay so one out, IBB loads the bases. Whatcha got, Chicken Strips?

QuadSevens said...

One out bases loaded now.

QuadSevens said...

Chicken Strips has some cajones! Big K!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Alright, well, I'm gonna go pour some bleach into my eyeballs because this isn't gonna end well

QuadSevens said...

Wow! Another big K to get out of the tenth!

Steve Sax said...

Holy shit, Chicken Strips with TWO straight Ks!

Let's go, BLUE!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Like I said, we're still in this thing! Have some faith, guys!

karen said...

OMG! Stripper gets out of it.

@Q7....total agreement on the cajones.

karen said...

@Cliffy....So we're holding off on the bleach??

Steve Sax said...

Force out at second, so Utley on first with one out.

Steve Sax said...

@karen: cliffy will use the bleach tonight, the question is: where?

Steve Sax said...

Farmer Ks, 0-for-4 night.

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Karen, for now. It's on standby, though.

Steve Sax said...

Max Muncy. Seriously?

Seventh-highest payroll in the majors, and we trot out Max Muncy in this situation.

Steve Sax said...

LAT: Muncy batted .195 in 96 games with Oakland in 2015 and 2016.

Steve Sax said...

Max gets a single to shut me up. First and second, two out

Orel said...

"In your face, Sax!" —Max Muncy, who just singled

Steve Sax said...

Taylor pops to first. 3-3, mid-11

Cliff Beefpile said...

Max Muncy sounds like the name of the bully in a direct-to-DVD kids' movie

Steve Sax said...

"43-for-216 is not even Mendoza, Max! Keep it up!"--Sax

Steve Sax said...

When I get a case of the Max Muncys, I go to Taco Bell late night

Steve Sax said...

@Cliff 10:46p: nice!

Steve Sax said...

Austin Hedges GIDP, so we go to the 12th tied at 3

Steve Sax said...

Corey with a leadoff single in the 12th!

Steve Sax said...

Cody basically GIDP, but he hustles and beats the throw at first. Credit to Codes. Men at corners, one out.

Cliff Beefpile said...

This ump's strike zone is...odd.

Steve Sax said...

YAZMANI DOUBLE!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

YAZ!!!

Steve Sax said...

Okay, Grandal was 0-for-5 and he was DUE. He roped that to left and it's 5-3 and we chase Webb. Grandal is at second and he has cleared the bases. Way to go, Yasmani!

karen said...

YAZ brings in 2. Do we have anyone who can hold the friars in 12th?

Steve Sax said...

Padres go to Makita.

Steve Sax said...

Man, this Range Roger Velar is a damn sweet-looking car.

Steve Sax said...

orel is being a little too drooly over Bellinger right now. I'm uncomfortable.

Steve Sax said...

Puig pops to first. Two out

Steve Sax said...

Utley IBB

Steve Sax said...

Farmer with a double! We are owning Makita.

7-3 Dodgers, off the submariner.

Steve Sax said...

Farmer roped tbat one as well (to left). 7-3 LA

Karen, how are you feeling?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, shit. Looks like I can bleach the ol' bunghole instead of my eyes, the way I'd hoped! So say the baseball gods and Saxy!

Steve Sax said...

All we have is Fields and Font in the pen

Steve Sax said...

Cliff is bleaching his asshole tonight! It's a victory!

For someone.

Maybe

Steve Sax said...

Fields it is.

Fields of dreams?

karen said...

Fields has got to shut this down. We don't want to have to bring in that Font guy.

Steve Sax said...

Fields Ks Spingenberg for out 1

Steve Sax said...

Nice catch Puig! No, they called a single? No way. That's a catch.

Steve Sax said...

Out #2.

karen said...

PUIG'D

Steve Sax said...

We win! Three in a row, holy cow!

Way to go Yasmani

karen said...

WIN!!!

Steve Sax said...

Good night you beautiful SoSG fans

Orel said...

WUB

Steve Sax said...

Yasmani is not a good post-game interview

Steve Sax said...

WUBBA LUBBA DUB DUB

Steve Sax said...

Ned Colletti's tie does not match his pocket square. Really bad form there, Ned

QuadSevens said...

SNLA needs to fire their stylist. That's terrible!

QuadSevens said...

With this new avatar, I feel like all of my comments have to be better now that Kershaw is reading them.

karen said...

Rich Hill on 10 day DL for a broken fingernail.

sigh...

karen said...

3-0 Blue going to B1.

...and yes, Matty had a rbi in T1...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I feel Richie’s pain. I have gnarly hang nail on my pinky...

karen said...

Maeda walks in first friar run. 4-1 B2.

karen said...

@Dusty...then you need to take 10 days off from work and still collect your bazillion dollar check.

4-2 Blue...

karen said...

Boys are on fire! 9-2 T3 with no outs.

Steve Sax said...

max muncy with a HR. Wow

Cliff Beefpile said...

Looks like the Padres were just what the doctor ordered.

Cliff Beefpile said...

MAX MUNCY MANIA!

karen said...

Maeda needs to be banished to the bullpen. I feel better about life in general when he's down there.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Man, Seager has really come alive

Steve Sax said...

Maeda didn't do badly tonight at all. 106 pitches (one shy of his career high; higher than any start last year): 5.2 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 2 BB but 10Ks. I'll take it

Steve Sax said...

Adam Liberatore gets the third out of the sixth, stranding Maeda's two runners and keeping it a 9-4 game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Man, Makita again. I like watching him pitch...but he keeps getting shelled.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers TV guys keep talking about how Makita's delivery doesn't register on gamecast.

It doesn't matter, we've been shelling him all series. Hernandez with a one-out single.

karen said...

Great throw by Muncy.

Steve Sax said...

Muncy with a GREAT defensive play at the hot corner to nab Headley on a 5-3 play. Impressive. One out, B7, man on second.

Steve Sax said...

Liberatore with a K for out 2

Steve Sax said...

Joc caught the foul ball in foul territory in left, and then let it drop out of his glove. what the heck, Joc

Steve Sax said...

As the announcers are reminding me, earlier in the game, Joc also was thrown out at the plate when the pitch hit the bottom knob of his bat. Yikes, this is a bad luck game for Pederson

karen said...

Tough night for Joc. I hate watching the kid struggle like this.

Steve Sax said...

Ground out to Belli for the third out. 9-4 through 7 full.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Yeah, I love Joc, but he's never quite worked out...and I'm starting to worry he never will.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Joc may need a “change of scenery”. It might’ve be his time to try his wares somewhere else.

Steve Sax said...

Yasmani is fucking ROPING the ball of late. Double to right scores Taylor from first. 10-4 LA

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Grandal hit the cover off that ball. Wow!

Steve Sax said...

To Joc's credit, it was awesome to watch his unbridled joy in the WS.

But yeah, he's still a bit less than what I think he needs to be

Steve Sax said...

Seager plates two more, swinging on the first pitch again. It’s 13-4.

Corey, welcome back, dude

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers win 13-4. Get some rest guys; Nats on Friday.

karen said...

SWEEEP!! friars are our bitch Bishes!!!

karen said...

Boys are starting to look like a TEAM again.
