2020 NLCS Game 4 Thread: Oct 15 @ Braves, 5p

Flashing the guns. We're ready.

Kershaw vs. Wilson.

Wow, what an opening to NLCS Game 3.. And though it might be slightly unfair to expect another first-inning outburst tonight, it would live up to the pattern if the Dodgers exploded yet again for Game 4. SoSG Gnomes corrected me that yesterday's road game was not the first of this 2020 postseason; our other road game was NLDS Game 3, in which we won 12-3 over San Diego.

These two 2020 road games account for two of the Dodgers' top five most prolific playoff performances all time. And tonight's another road game. So let's do it again!

Which would be great of course, especially given Clayton Kershaw takes the mound for us today after being scratched in Game 2 with back spasms. Hoping Clayton's back is settled and he is able to rise to what pundits are already dubbing "the most important of his career", which they seem to say for every single one of Kershaw's playoff starts, anyway. That's why he's an ace. It comes with the territory.

We're winning tonight. Remember the happy times.

I started to read that article about this being Kershaw's most important start of his career but couldn't finish it. I can't take the hype. I just want this game to start.

Kershaw will tell you every start is the biggest start of his career. He’s a bulldog out there and wants to crush it every time out. Fuck all those hyped up fake news articles!

Beer Check: back with the Sam’s O-Fest since it worked for game 2.

@Karen the fog comment just took me way back!

karen said...

Dusty...are you old enough to remember Vin calling Candlestick 'the house of horrors'?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Oh yeah I’m old enough to vividly remember Joe Morgan hitting the homer in the last game of the season in 1982. RIP Joe. i still hate you, but in a good way...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I hate this pitcher

karen said...

I'm a bitter old bitch but I was hoping his wrist was broken.

We got em right where we want them!

Steve Sax said...

Last night the Braves couldn't get that third out of first.

Tonight we can't get the second out of the sixth. Ugh.

Steve Sax said...

What a trainwreck.

Okay, so we gotta win three straight. Here we go.
