Series Thread (Games 37-39): Sep 1-3 vs. D'backs

Tues 9/1: Urias vs. Young
Wed 9/2: Kershaw vs. TBD
Thu 9/3: TBD vs TBD
All games 6.40p

Home sweet home come the Dodgers, fresh off a prolific August in which they hit a NL-record 57 home runs (remember: we're playing with the designated hitter this year, so it's not exactly apples-to-apples). And here to greet them are the last-place Arizona Diamondbacks, who are probably just happy to not be playing indoors where COVID-19 can flourish. That's all I got right now, sorry. Rough week at work.

Dodgers had RA in the 1st and only scored because the pitcher walked a guy in. D'backs tied it up on a solo HR. CT3 knocked in Pollock for the 2-1 lead but Kiké GIDP

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO (5th inning)

Orel said...

Kiké sac fly 3-1

Orel said...

Sac fly city! Rios gets one, 4-1

Orel said...

CT3 2-RBI double. Mookie picked up CT3's bat at home, so part of his $365M contract includes batboy duties as well

Steve Sax said...

Wow Wood looked posed off with that K for the second out in the 8th. Nice

Steve Sax said...

Howzit goin’, Orel?

Steve Sax said...

No Kershaw Day today. I think its tomorrow.

karen said...

RIP Tom Terrific.

Steve Sax said...

Just saw that Karen. Very sad to hear Seaver passed today.

Steve Sax said...

Kenley is off the hook!

Steve Sax said...

Kenley walks a run in during the 10th inning to make it 2-1 AZ. But CT3 lays down a bunt to advance Muncy from second to third, and Muncy scores when the 1-5 throw to third goes wide. Now CT3 is on second, Joc is up, no out, B10

Steve Sax said...

Joc sacrifices CT to third. One out, Fresh Prince up

Steve Sax said...

SMITH WALK-OFF!

Steve Sax said...

Smith walkoff single to left. They might call it a double, who knows. Dodgers win!

Dodgers were down 1-0 into the ninth and then Mookie hit a solo shot in the 9th to tie it, and then the Dodgers battled back to win it in the 10th after being one down. Another win!

WIN

CT3 brings in Max Muncy...2-0 Blue in 1st.

Orel said...

Messages from Vin Scully. Early run support for Kershaw. What year is this?

karen said...

K 2500 for Kid K.

karen said...

Beautiful curve for Kersh.

Orel said...

Kershaw passes Christy Mathewson on the all-time K list

Orel said...

At which point do we think about a phantom IL visit for Kershaw to keep him fresh?

karen said...

He did miss his start on opening day and it seems like 1 or 2 since. It seems to me like he hasn't been a regular in the 5 man rotation but then Walker hasn't been either. I would expect some down time for October and the rest of this stop and start stuff is all part of our covid season.

Orel said...

I think he's been getting 5 instead of 4 days' rest between starts as well

Orel said...

But still I worry

karen said...

Oh I'm with you. Seems like he's had more and more stuff with his back as he gets older.

karen said...

What are your thoughts on extra innings starting with a runner on 2nd base and that nasty old DH this season. I think I like the extra innings change which pains me to say because I consider myself a traditionalist but if they bring the DH to the National League I'll have such a meltdown I worry I won't survive it.

Orel said...

Ha I'm the opposite. I like how the DH allows our offense to keep rolling once we start piling up runs. But starting the runner on second in extras is just brutal for relievers

Orel said...

Opposing pitcher has settled down nicely

karen said...

And we're usually so much in sync!!!

Orel said...

Heartbreaking isn't it

Orel said...

Also Kershaw needs to give up a hit so Doc doesn't keep him in for too long

Orel said...

There it is

Orel said...

Corey's on fire

karen said...

I'm getting a little nervous....

Orel said...

Pollock solo HR makes it 3-1 in the 7th

Orel said...

Mookie is gold. RBI single makes it 4-1. Breathe easy Karen

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

karen said...

RA for Cody

karen said...

Darn you!

Orel said...

welp

Orel said...

Ha!

Orel said...

Kiké almost turned the most incredible DP

Orel said...

Kiké RBI! 5-1

karen said...

SWEEP BABY!!!

Orel said...

WIN
