2020 NLCS Game 2 Thread: Oct 13 vs. Barves, 3p

Gonsolin vs Anderson

Welp. WELP. Things were going swimmingly until they weren't. The Barves punched the Dodgers in the mouth yesterday in Game 1 and now we get the news that Clayton Kershaw has back spasms and won't start Game 2. Tony Gonsolin will take his place.

One thing that impressed me about the Lakers' title run this year was that they never lost two in a row in the playoffs. When they lost, they made adjustments in the next game. Let's face it: Until last night the Dodgers hadn't been challenged in the playoffs beyond Game 2 of the Padres series. Can we make adjustments after being punched in the mouth?

Time to find out what we're made of!

Welp. No more predictions from me about this series. We just need to get some hits!

Orel said...

Looking at you Mookie OMG I SAID SOMETHING SLIGHTLY NEGATIVE ABOUT MOOKIE WHAT IS HAPPENING

Orel said...

UrĂ­as to start Game 3

QuadSevens said...

Guessing May or Kershaw for game 4 depending on how 2 and 3 go.

QuadSevens said...

BTW...I hate the FS1 pregame show.

karen said...

@Q7...Dodger pregame is on SNLA if you have it.

QuadSevens said...

Thanks Karen. The guided didn't show it, and I was being lazy about having to change the channel.

QuadSevens said...

karen said...

Inside of the plate belongs to the pitcher unless you are not a Dodger.

QuadSevens said...

Gonsolin and CT3 with a very nice first inning!

karen said...

CT3 with a great play.

Orel said...

What a diving stop by CT3 to end the 1st!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Great AB by Mookie! From 0-2 to drawing the walk

Orel said...

And he advances to second on a WP

Orel said...

Good eye Corey

Orel said...

Dammit, Corey Ks

karen said...

Whoa Nelly!!! 2 on for Boys

Orel said...

Max walks. Two on two out

QuadSevens said...

I hate the Barves third baseman.

Orel said...

Smith could not have hit that harder

Orel said...

Third K for Gonsolin!

QuadSevens said...

He's feeling frisky!

Orel said...

TERRIBLE swing by Cody to strike out

Orel said...

OK so we're doing a pitching duel

Orel said...

Catman thru 3 on 28 pitches!

Orel said...

CT3 crushes it but SURPRISE it's caught at the track

Orel said...

Mookie walks again

karen said...

Corey not looking so good.

Orel said...

If he and Cody go in deep freeze again...

QuadSevens said...

We have a hit!

Orel said...

JT singles! Mookie races to third!

karen said...

RA for the Fresh Prince.

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Orel said...

DAMMIT

QuadSevens said...

Let's go Smith! Crush another one! Just not right at someone.

Orel said...

Exactly Quad!

Orel said...

welp

QuadSevens said...

That sucked. We are racking up the LOB.

QuadSevens said...

And that sucked even more.

Why can’t the Dodgers do that? Braves make it look really easy.

Orel said...

Well fuck.

QuadSevens said...

@Orel It's a good thing I'm not watching this game at work because I yelled that. Working from home saved me there.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Belli weak ass fly out

QuadSevens said...

Joc with a walk. Start of a 2 out rally?

QuadSevens said...

Nope.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is that Braves pitcher really that good? Did the Dodgers blow their wad too early against the Padres in that game 2?

karen said...

Is there a mercy rule here?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is the Rays game on yet?

QuadSevens said...

Hopefully this long inning makes the Barves pitchers cold and we can get some hits.

QuadSevens said...

Nope.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

The good news is there aren’t travel days so we can hurry up and get on with our lives by Thursday.

spank said...

good lord..what happened to the Dodgers? this is a fucking joke

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Spank it all went to shit in the worse possible way.

QuadSevens said...

We have scored 4 in the ninth. 8-7 now with a runner on third.

QuadSevens said...

And we lose by one.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

At least the bats finally woke up! See y’all tomorrow.

Steve Sax said...

Bats are alive. Here we go.
