NLCS Game 2 Thread: 10/13 @ Brewers, 1p

Dammit cloud wipe that smile off your face.

Hyun-Jin Ryu vs Wade Miley.

Yesterday the Dodgers and Brewers teamed up to beat the Dodgers — but just barely, which I guess is the silver lining here. (Why always with the goddamn silver lining? Why can't we make the whole cloud out of silver???).

The good news is that resident Brewers youthful racist/homophobe Josh Hader won't be available today, and Ryu can solidify his status as the Dodgers' number-one pitcher (sorry Clayton, but giving up a 407-foot homer to a reliever will do that) by pitching the Dodgers to a win.

The bad news is that Miley dominated the Dodgers earlier this year, holding them scoreless over seven innings in a 1-0 Brewers victory in July. Oh, and the Dodgers are down in this series. That's bad news too.

Help us Obi-Wan Ryu. You're our only hope!

Steve Sax said...

Barnes over Grandal. Yikes

Orel said...

What, you would have Grandal start again?

Steve Sax said...

I am so freaked out

Steve Sax said...

I’m back in the Turkish prison where all I have is a radio feed. Dammit

Steve Sax said...

@Orel 1:03, no, but we probably need his bat. Look for doc to switch him back in soon

Steve Sax said...

Barnes’ bat has a hole in it (like grandal’s glove)

Orel said...

Grandal is costing us runs because he can't catch the ball

Orel said...

Anyhoo HERE WE GO

Orel said...

CT3K

Orel said...

JT1B!

Steve Sax said...

Turner is back in the groove. He is going to have a big game today

Orel said...

Cain steals a possible Freese HR but at least Miley isn't fooling anyone

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, sounds like Freese almost had that one.

Steve Sax said...

Of course, Charley is confused on every HR call, so that was probably a lazy fly ball

Steve Sax said...

Or a pop fly to the infield

Orel said...

Manny did not deliver

Steve Sax said...

Dammit my radio feed dropped with the 3-2 count, too

QuadSevens said...

Ryu with a nice looking K on Braun.

Orel said...

Yelich singles. Moral victory. Braun Ks. Real victory. Two down, one on

Steve Sax said...

Lost all audio. Dammit

Orel said...

QuadSevens said...

Joe Buck giving the inning to Bob Uecker. Not showing favorites or anything.

Orel said...

ugh

Orel said...

Quad: If that means less Joe, I'm all for it

Orel said...

KKKK

Orel said...

Scoreless thru 4

Orel said...

1-0 Brewers. Game over. See you Monday

QuadSevens said...

Wood hasn’t looked good the last month or so. Gives up a bomb to make it 3-0 Brewers.

Orel said...

Belli RBI single makes it 3-1!

QuadSevens said...

Great time for his first hit of the post season. Let's keep this merry-go-round going!

QuadSevens said...

Joc singles to load them up!

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

QuadSevens said...

Puig with the bat lick.

QuadSevens said...

Puig has fouled off 4 pitches so far. Battling.

QuadSevens said...

Puig strikes out and snaps his bat. Damn.

QuadSevens said...

Barnes with the walk! 3-2!

Orel said...

Barnsey works a ballsy walk! 3-2!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

I would be happy if Grandal never played another inning for the Dodgers ever

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

They just used Elvis Costello to signify Brewers happiness.
Not.
Okay.

QuadSevens said...

@Orel I’m good with no more Grandal too.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

"It was a lack of focus"
Not exactly a vote of confidence on Grandal by Roberts.

Orel said...

It was a surfeit of sucking

QuadSevens said...

Full swing bunt hit for CT3 to lead off the 8th.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Ugly hits = Hits. I'll take it.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Has anyone seen my pistachios.

QuadSevens said...

REDTURN2!!

Orel said...

OH HELLS YEAH

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

Never sleep on a bearded man. Figuratively or literally!

QuadSevens said...

We have the lead going to the bottom of the 8th. 4-3.

spank said...

Muncy should have crashed into his nuts and fucked him up on that double play slide. just saying.

Orel said...

Spikes up!

QuadSevens said...

Baez with a big strikeout to start the 8th. Ferguson coming in.

Orel said...

5 MORE OUTS

Orel said...

STILL 5 MORE OUTS

Orel said...

4 MORE OUTS

QuadSevens said...

Two down. Maeda next out of the pen.

QuadSevens said...

“Hey Google! Can we get rid of Joe Buck and these terrible ads?”

Orel said...

Holy shit Granderson almost fucked us

Orel said...

3 MORE OUTS

Orel said...

Quad @4:17 "I'm sorry, I don't understand."

QuadSevens said...

That fly ball scared me too.

spank said...

Orel said...

Joc dribbler single!

Orel said...

Puig GIDP of course

QuadSevens said...

Kenley time!

Orel said...

We've hit into 3x DP in the last 3 innings

Orel said...

TWO MORE OUTS

Orel said...

Kenley can never go 1-2-3 can he

Orel said...

ONE MO OUT

QuadSevens said...

That was a big K.

Orel said...

It has to be Yelich huh

Orel said...

ONE MO STRIKE

QuadSevens said...

Orel said...

Orel said...

DAMMIT

QuadSevens said...

There can never be too many “WIN” comments.

Delino DeShields, Sr said...

BABABOEEY TO YOU ALL!!!!!!
All Turner. All Day.

My Lindsey Buckingham Koozie will now be used for every game.

The rally literally began the second I took it out of its protective chamber.

Orel said...

Holy shit that was a tense game

Orel said...

AMEN QUAD

QuadSevens said...

Kenley looked really good. The walk had some close pitches. 93 and 94 with good movement all day.

Orel said...

I will never not be nervous with him on the mound. Whole bullpen was aces but boy there were some squeakers

QuadSevens said...

My butt was clenched for most of the game.

Steve Sax said...

Quad watches from his hot tub
