Hilo de la Serie (Games 32-34): 4-6 de mayo contra Padres

Bienvenido al fin de semana! En esta serie, seremos los Hijos (y Nuera) de Steve Garvey, porque estamos en América Latina, invitamos a nuestra latina favorita, Karina, para que fuera nuestra escritora invitada. ¡Adiós, y buena suerte a todos! - Stubbs

Viernes, 6p: Walker Buehler vs Joey Lucchesi, LAD 4 - SD 0 Combined no-hitter!
Sabado, 4p: Kenta Maeda vs Bryan Mitchell, SD 7 - LAD 4
Domingo, 1p: Rich Hill vs Eric Lauer, SD 3 - LAD 0

En las inmortales palabras de los geniales Molotov, ¡VIVA MÉXICO, C*BRON*S!. Empezamos el fin de semana del 5 de mayo en Monterrey, México, con el inicio de la serie Doyers-Padres (pronounced PadRRes). En México no se celebra el 5 de mayo, pero nosotros lo usaremos como excusa para tomar margaritas y micheladas, si los Doyers ganan, celebramos...si pierden, ¡se nos olvida! Fondo blanco, damas y caballeros, ¡SALUD!


Casi veintidós años han pasado desde la primera vez que un juego de Grandes Ligas se celebró fuera de las fronteras de EE.UU. y Canadá, el 16 de agosto de 1996, precisamente en Monterrey, el escenario de hoy. Fernando (<3) lanzó el primer pitcheo y también se desempeñó como el lanzador de los Padres, quienes derrotaron a los Metropolitanos 15-10 (¡disculpa, Delino! Quizá los Metropolitanos pensaron que era una práctica de bateo).


En aquella oportunidad, el único jugador mexicano en ambos rosters era Fernando (<3<3), en esta serie, tenemos al Padre bebé, el nativo de Guadalajara, Christian Villanueva. Sin embargo, los Doyers tienen dentro de las filas del circuito radial en español a Fernando (<3<3<3), así que de antemano les hemos ganado la partida a los Padres porque si Fernando (<3<3<3<3) está con nosotros, ¿quién puede contra nosotros?


El encargado de abrir por los Dodgers será nuestro bebé Doyer, Walker Buehler (1-0, 1.80 ERA), quien se estrenó en Grandes Ligas demostrando lo que se espera de su talento, mientras que el responsable de la lomita por los Padres será Joey Lucchesi (3-1, 2.78 ERA).

Me despido, agradecida con mis cuñados de SoSG por invitarme a escribir la introducción para el juego de hoy. Les dejo con buena música proveniente de Monterrey: Plastilina Mosh con “Mr. P Mosh”

Kemp's RBI was on a pop up that nobody could find. We'll take it!

QuadSevens said...

Hola, amigxs!

Dusty Baker said...

Ay dios mio! I forgot about the different start time. My early observances are:

1) We're winning.

2) It's raining.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Let’s get those 5 innings in, chaps

Steve Sax said...

3-0, B4

Steve Sax said...

Props to mlb for designing a new stadium background for Monterrey in Gameday

Franklin Stubbs said...

I hope Verdugo sticks and grows into the name, because having The Executioner step into the box is fucking metal.

QuadSevens said...

Six excellent innings for Buehler. He's probably done.

Orel said...

Buehler thru 6!

Orel said...

He's probably finito.

QuadSevens said...

That is an awesome nickname!

Orel said...

What's Spanish for DAMMIT

Orel said...

Squanchy Cordero

Orel said...

Can't believe Kenley's going to be the one to blow the no-hitter

Orel said...

Joe Davis says it's Liberatore hahahaha

Steve Sax said...

Okay, "fasten those seatbelts!"

Steve Sax said...

@Orel 8:59p: can't believe you actually mentioned it in your comment

Orel said...

Joe and Orel are openly talking about it

QuadSevens said...

Libby gets a K to start the ninth.

Steve Sax said...

oh sure, blame them

Steve Sax said...

@Quad, my feed is on delay

Steve Sax said...

that makes me more nervous

Steve Sax said...

I've only got it on my laptop as the "historic live look-in"

Steve Sax said...

Liberatore can't find the strike zone

Franklin Stubbs said...

Liberatore making me sweat

Franklin Stubbs said...

DAMMIT!

Steve Sax said...

@Stubbs, you've always said that about him

Steve Sax said...

Fly out to Pederson in left, two out

Franklin Stubbs said...

This time, not because he’s dreamy

Franklin Stubbs said...

DO EET

QuadSevens said...

No hitter!!

Orel said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

YES!

Steve Sax said...

WE DID IT!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck, this means we gotta do all the threads in Spanish now, doesn’t it?

Steve Sax said...

Combined no-hitter, first for the Dodgers and 12th in MLB history

Orel said...

What's Spanish for yes?

Franklin Stubbs said...

VIVA LOS DOYERS, CABRONES!

Dusty Baker said...

Si! Si! Si!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

This means Karina has to do all the STs en Espanol from now on.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Shit, if we did that, this place would be halfway-respectable again.

karina said...

@dusty I think tomorrow's game needs a thread of its own

ps: I feel like playing lottery

Steve Sax said...

Second no-hitter of the year

Steve Sax said...

23rd no-hitter in franchise history

Dusty Baker said...

Agree w stand-alone GT mañana.

Speaking of GTs, I'm going to make another gin and tonic.

Steve Sax said...

no-hitters.com says we have 26 in the franchise history (including tonight), so let me do some more sleuthing

Franklin Stubbs said...

*drinks*

Dusty Baker said...

There is a website for no hitters? Cool.

Steve Sax said...

mlb.com also says we have 26 (which leads the majors by a huge gap)

Dusty Baker said...

Is there a website for one-hitters?

Wait, there is. https://hightimes.com/products/best-one-hitter-2017/

Steve Sax said...

nice.

Steve Sax said...

Only six games back of the Snakes!

Only two games back of .500 mediocrity!

QuadSevens said...

My Dodger fact calendar today was talking about the first no hitter at Dodger Stadium. It didn't even involve the Dodgers. That got me looking up no hitters earlier today. Amazing that they pulled it off tonight!

Johnny Blanchard said...

this interpreter is trilling the absolute shit out of his "r's"

Johnny Blanchard said...

Only the suckass Reds, Pads, Marlins are under .500 with us in the NL!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

@JB

Occam’s Razor cuts so deep.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Uno y Uno y Uno y Uno = CERO! Muy bien, Doyers!

Steve Sax said...

I’m so confused which is the GT

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Sax Just go with the flow buddy

Orel said...

It's not like the results are any different
