QuadSevens said...

Pregame show had a baby face pic of Bumgarner. Looked totally different.

Orel said...

Scoreless after 1

QuadSevens said...

Leadoff single but no runs. Going to the second.

Orel said...

BumGerber?

Orel said...

Machado continues to press

Orel said...

Clean 2nd for Kershaw, at 27 pitches

QuadSevens said...

BumGerber is right!

No beard is not as intimidating.

Orel said...

Clean-shaven and a smile! I can see why he grew the beard

Orel said...

Barnes somehow works a walk with two out. Gets the pitcher's spot out of the way

QuadSevens said...

Double steal, but we strand them. Two innings in a row where we have runners in scoring position. We need to take advantage of these opportunities.

QuadSevens said...

McCutchen has a nose ring? Never seen that on a player before.

Orel said...

As in the 2nd, two men on with two men out in the 3rd

Orel said...

I'm on Gameday, Quad. There's no nose-ring stat

Orel said...

CT3 strikes out

QuadSevens said...

Puig hits it hard but only gets it to the warning track.

QuadSevens said...

RBI bloop for Kershaw!

QuadSevens said...

Crawford and the left fielder collide on the play. Barnes scored from first. Kershaw was thrown out at third. We’re up 1-0!

Orel said...

Kershaw helping his own cause!

QuadSevens said...

1-2-3 inning for Kershaw. Smooth sailing so far.

QuadSevens said...

Turner!

Orel said...

JTHR!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

Snakes lose

QuadSevens said...

Barnes has been framing pretty well tonight. Kershaw is getting some generous called strikes.

Orel said...

Gotta jump — see you on the other side

QuadSevens said...

Deiter played the Friends theme with Puig facing Bumgarner. Love it!

QuadSevens said...

See ya later Orel.

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers up 2-1 at the stretch.

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw with 7 Ks through 7. He’s back out for the 8th.

QuadSevens said...

1-2-3 eighth inning for Kershaw! 9 Ks on the night.

QuadSevens said...

Alexander coming in for the ninth. Still 2-1 Dodgers.

QuadSevens said...

One out single and Oyster Pubes coming up.

QuadSevens said...

Pubes singles. Two on now.

Steve Sax said...

Oh shit.

Sax in the house btw!!!

Steve Sax said...

My audio feed is on delay

Steve Sax said...

Well at least we can’t get walked off here.

QuadSevens said...

Fielders choice. Two out runners on the corners.

QuadSevens said...

Just in time Sax.

Johnny Blanchard said...

cmon Alexander you POS

QuadSevens said...

Oh boy! HBP loads the bases.

Steve Sax said...

We are so fucked here.

Steve Sax said...

God damn we miss Kenley

Johnny Blanchard said...

my goodness I guess we need a trade for a reliever

QuadSevens said...

Shit! Pinch hit 2 RBI single.

Steve Sax said...

I fucking hate this team. Why didn’t we pull Alexander, he is not the andwer

QuadSevens said...

Kershaw is going to kill Alexander. 4-2 now.

QuadSevens said...

Baez warming up!? Really!?

Steve Sax said...

It’s almost as if Dave Roberts is telling Farhan and Friedman to fuck themselves

Johnny Blanchard said...

Muncy is such a butcher

QuadSevens said...

This ninth inning has been torture.

QuadSevens said...

Alexander looked like he was about to cry on the bench.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Alexander was "the guy" from this last offseason... they are definitely betting on him. Results are, to put it nicely, a work in progress.
The boys in the FO clearly love him.........................................................................................................

Steve Sax said...

I think we should have gotten a reliever.

QuadSevens said...

Kemp pinch hitting with Barnes on first. Two out.

QuadSevens said...

Shit.

Johnny Blanchard said...

well this season is certainly not as boring as the last few... intrigue still exists in baseball..
maybe our glove first SS Machado can do something with the bat eventually?

Orel said...

Well shit.

Steve Sax said...

I can’t deal with this team

QuadSevens said...

The bullpen needs to sacrifice a live chicken.

QuadSevens said...

GAME 2
Dozier 2B
Turner 3B
Machado SS
Hernandez CF
Kemp LF
Bellinger 1B
Grandal C
Puig RF

Orel said...

Quad with the lineup! I love it!

Orel said...

Ugh how did we not score in that 1st inning. Now Wood has two on with no out

Orel said...

1-0 Giants

QuadSevens said...

Trying to change things up a little and see if it helps.

QuadSevens said...

So far, nope.

Orel said...

Snakes, Rox win

Orel said...

Why can't we hit

QuadSevens said...

The nuns need to get some more holy water I think.

Orel said...

aaaaaaugh

Orel said...

Holy water, Batman!

QuadSevens said...

Machado with an RBI single in the eighth! Tied up 1-1.

QuadSevens said...

To follow up on the holy water comment, Machado had said when the team got back to LA that he was going to get some holy water for the team. Tonight, Tommy brought a couple of nuns to the game and they were spraying the guys with holy water when they got to the on deck circle.

QuadSevens said...

Maeda trying to work out of some trouble in the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

Shit! Down 2-1 going to the bottom of the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

Infield single for Bellinger. One out, Grandal coming up.

QuadSevens said...

Grandal down swinging. Muncy pinch hitting.

QuadSevens said...

Bellinger steals second!

QuadSevens said...

Muncy down swinging. Damn!

Steve Sax said...

3-3 going to B9. We have to win this game.

Steve Sax said...

Btw this is game 3

Steve Sax said...

Maeda as a PH? What the fuck

Steve Sax said...

Let’s fucking WIN THIS Dozier

First and third, none out, B12

Steve Sax said...

FINALLY!!!! Sac fly Dozier, dodgers win 4-3

Steve Sax said...

17 LOB. Yay

Johnny Blanchard said...

All I can hear when Dozier talks is "them Dukes! them Dukes!"

Johnny Blanchard said...

I have decided, as a matter of philosophy, to not give a flying rat's crapping ass about LOB numbers. It's all gravy when the BA is over .200 with runners on for me.

Go tight pants

QuadSevens said...

Apparently I was bad luck. Didn't watch the game or even check the score yesterday and they won! I'll make sure to do the same today. =)
