Series Thread (Games 50-52): May 25-27 vs. Padres

Friday, 5.25, 7p: Ross Stripling vs. Clayton Richard LAD 4, SD 1
Saturday, 5.26, 7p: Alex Wood vs. Lyles SD 7, LAD 5
Sunday, 5.27, 1p: Walker Buehler vs. TBD LAD 6, SD 1

With the Dodgers taking two of three from the NL West-leading Rockies, and winning six out of their last seven games, the Dodgers amazingly find themselves only 3.5 games back of first. This is despite having one of the worst starts in franchise history, and playing absolutely maddening baseball when it comes to RISP.

Those two wins against the Rockies were impressive, with one a comeback victory and the other a Kenta Maeda 12-strikeout gem. But now it's out of the frying pan, into the friars. Wait, that pun doesn't work so well here, so maybe I'll use it on Monday when we face the Phillies (why isn't this a four-game series for the Memorial Day weekend? This makes no sense).

It all starts with you, Chicken Strips.

I guess the beers are flowing on this Memorial Day for the Sons. No new game thread.
