Series Thread (Games 64-66): June 7-9 @ Giants

not much of a video here, black keys

Fri 6/7 7.15p: Clayton Kershaw vs. Pomeranz
Sat 6/8 4.15p: Rich Hill vs. Samardzija
Sun 6/9 1.15p: Walker Buehler vs. Bumgarner

The Dodgers took only two of three in the Arizona desert, thanks to another bullpen implosion (this time from Scott Alexander) in the final game. But the big winner was SoSG Sax here, who put down a whole $20 on the Dodgers to win the Ryu game (Saturday, a 9-0 win), at -210 odds, and netted a cool $9.55 in profit for that wager. I still have no idea how those odds are calculated, but I was excited to win money. Thank you, Hyun-Jin!

No bets this weekend on the Dodgers for Sax. My stomach can't handle those his and los.

Fun fact: Clayton Kershaw has 22 wins against the Giants and Rockies (22-10 and 22-7, respectively); 23 would be the most against any opponent.

Steve Sax said...

Kershaw struggling here in the sixth. 1-0, two on, none out

Steve Sax said...

2-0 bad guys through six. Dodgers turn a double play to escape the sixth without more damage.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers not good so far

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers get a solo shot by Taylor, but Brllinger flies out with Muncy on base.

2-1 SF, mid-8

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers go feebly in the ninth, both seager and Hernandez K. Dodgers lose 2-1

Steve Sax said...

Pederson was 2-for-16 coming into this game, and he's 0-for-3 with two Ks today so far (T4). Not good.

Steve Sax said...

Oh yeah: GAME 2. Midway through the fourth:

Pederson LF 0-for-3
Muncy 1B 0-for-3
Turner 3B 2-for-2
Bellinger RF 0-for-0, two IBB
Seager SS 2-for-2, RBI
Verdugo CF 0-for-2, 6 LOB
Hernandez 2B 0-for-2, 3 LOB
Martin C 0-for-2
Hill P 0-for-2

Steve Sax said...

Now 2-1 SF, one out in B4. Donovan Solano with a RBI single, scoring Kevin Pillar.

Steve Sax said...

Seager ties it with a RBI double, scoring JT! 1 out, T5

Steve Sax said...

Rich Hill has first and second with no one out, B5.

Kike Hernandez and Alex Verdugo, both of whom could not score Seager from second last inning, are now each 0-for-3

Steve Sax said...

Okay I gotta grill dinner.

Steve Sax said...

Unlike Kike and Alex's bats, I'm gonna be on fire

Steve Sax said...

Wow, rich hill had bases loaded with none out. Pillar popped up the first pitch for an infield fly, then Brandon Crawford GIDPd.

Still 2-2

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez is really bad at the plate these days.

Steve Sax said...

Oh no. Here’s Kung Fat Panda as a PH. Not good

Steve Sax said...

Derek Rodriguez walks in TWO runs! 5-2 LA , top 8. None out

Steve Sax said...

Seager with the dagger! 2-RBI double makes it 7-2.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers win, 7-2. More importantly: Joe Kelly, 1.0 IP, 3Ks. Nice!

Neeebs said...

Such a sad thread. Saxy keeping the flame alive.

Steve Sax said...

Thanks neeebs!

spank said...

Neeebs said...

Steve Sax said...

Muncy did just that!
