Series Thread (Games 40-42): Sept 4-6 vs. Rockies

Fri 9.4 6.30p: May vs. Senzatela
Sat 9.5 6p: Gonsolin vs. Márquez
Sun 9.6 7p: Urias vs. TBD

Two-thirds of the way through this "season" now, and the Dodgers have opened up a six-game lead on the Padres, thanks to winning 12 of their last 14 games. Clayton Kershaw passed 2,500 career strikeouts last night; Cody Bellinger, Max Muncy, and Kike Hernandez have all clawed their way over a .200 batting average; and Mookie Betts and Corey Seager continue to be red-hot. Speaking of red-hot, Los Angeles is going to be beastly this weekend. No better time to stay indoors and watch these games!

Game 2

Dodgers down 2-0. Mookie does it all: rbi single to get lux in, and then comes home on a Seager double to tie the game. 2-2

karen said...

Is it just me or has my man Matty gotten a little fluffy around the edges??

Steve Sax said...

Yeah Karen. kemp looks pretty robust. And that’s with the beard hiding the double chins

karen said...

I'm growing impatient with Julio. Seems like the Dodgers have been spoon feeding for a while now. Hope he proves me wrong tonight.

karen said...

Seager goes long in 1st. 1-0 Blue.

Lakers are stinking it up so i'm stuck watching the Dodgers for a bit

so much for solace

In the interest of transparency I feel the need to say I love Elvis Presley. Always have. Always will.

As our house MKW I have to mention that seeing my man Matty and those cheeks he's packing I'm having some painful memories of the first time I saw fat Elvis.

(Sorry El).

karen said...

Spanky...I was just going to call you...I was being a good little Lakers fan and they started scaring the crap out of me. So here I am where it's safe.

karen said...

Lakers win 117-109.

spank said...

karen thats why i came here to get some good vibes. the Lakers were choking. when i went back to the game they had found their balls and won.

Steve Sax said...

2-2, B3. Muncy up with one out and a man on first

Steve Sax said...

What the hell was Seager thinking there?! He’s doubled off of second when he runs on a Cody fly out to right. Why is he pulling a Puig

Steve Sax said...

2-2 through 3

karen said...

spank said...
