Series Thread (Games 50-53): June 27-30 vs. Giants

Thu 5.27 7p: TBD vs. Alex Wood
Fri 5.28 7p: Walker Buehler vs. DeScalfani
Sat 5.29 4p: Julio Urias vs. Webb
Sun 5.30 1p: Clayton Kershaw vs. Gausman

It stands to reason that, if the Dodgers could saunter up to Birdshit Park last weekend and sweep the first-place Giants, that San Francisco could pay the same favor back to us in Los Angeles this weekend. Starting out the series with a bullpen game vs. the Wood, 5-1 with a 1.93 ERA, would be a good start for the Giants to regain momentum.

The Dodgers are coming off a thumping against the Trashtros Tuesday, but a loss to Houston on Wednesday, only our second loss in our last 14 games. I'm sanguine as always, though--but as a bonus, I'll be at the ballpark on Saturday for the first time in over a year and a half. And I can't wait.

Dodgers and Evil Doers tied for second 1 game behind Friars.

Yaz's grandson still rocking the '70s porn mustache.

Price sits 'em down in order. Blue coming up in B1.

karen said...

Puljos rips a double to left. Watching him chug around the bases brought back memories of EK.

karen said...

Dodger fan who just missed catching a foul ball has a great Dodger jersey on with 8 on the front, 24 on the back under the name Bryant. Way cool.

karen said...

Price leaves game after sitting down the Hated Ones in order through 1 out in 3rd. He has 5 Ks in the Jumbo Jack sweepstakes.

karen said...

Mookie triples and JT goes long to put the Dodgers up 2-0 in B3.

karen said...

Longoria goes deep off of Joe Kelly. 2-1 LA.

karen said...

DJ Peters hits his first career homerun. 3-1 Blue.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Well that’s a buzz kill...

SHIT SHIT SHIT

Solano hits a homer to tie the game. 3-3 T6.

Steve Sax said...

@karen, thanks for the lineup and early comments! Just finished dinner.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Go get it out of the water!!!

karen said...

Muncy touches them all. 4-3 LA. B6.















karen said...

Okay, this is a new computer and I have no idea what I'm doing.

Steve Sax said...

karen: did you buy a commodore 64? :)

Steve Sax said...

VGon had a nice K there on Crawford for the first out in the seventh.

Steve Sax said...

4-3 LA at the stretch. Nice two outs there for Nate Jones.

Steve Sax said...

Lakers up by 10 with 10:34 left in the 4th

karen said...

Zack Littell looks like he has some roadkill hanging off of his chin. Not a good look.

Steve Sax said...

Padres lost in extras to Milwaukee. So Dodgers are currently 1 game back. As are the Giants.

Steve Sax said...

He looks a littell unkempt.

Steve Sax said...

1-2-3 inning for the Dodgers in the bottom of the seventh.

4-3 LA through 7 full

Steve Sax said...

JUMBO JACK! Thanks Blake Treinen

karen said...

@Sax...9:13PM...You're such a poet :)

karen said...

It's a Save situation...Does that mean Kenley is coming in? Cause he still scares me most of the time.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Do they make a Beyond Burger Jumbo Jack?

karen said...

KJ looking like a stud. Dodgers win 4-3.

Steve Sax said...

BOOM

WIN

Steve Sax said...

Kenley locks it down!!!

Doc says Belli will be in the lineup tomorrow.

karen said...

At the risk of sounding like a broken record--- the balls and strikes calls are horrible this year.

karen said...

Matt Beaty hits a homer to tie the game 1-1.

karen said...

Steven Duggar homers to put the Evil Doers up 2-1 T5.

karen said...

CT3 singles in JT to tie the game back up. 2-2 B5.

Steve Sax said...

Huge catch by Tsutsugo there, to end the 6th with a long fly out by Crawford. Giants had two RISP. Buehler escapes but that has to be his last inning.

Steve Sax said...

Buehler had pretty easy pitch counts in the first through fifth, but that sixth one was tough for him. I think he was at 27 or 28 pitches, almost 90 pitches total.

karen said...

Oh Goody!! Mitch White is back for me to lust over.

karen said...

@Sax...Did I read somewhere that you're going to the game tomorrow?

karen said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Steve Sax said...

Damn Oyster Pubes.

karen said...

AUSTIN BARNES YOU MAGNIFECENT BASTARD!!!!

karen said...

Team Satan wins.

Steve Sax said...

Ok Mookie Betts is starting to be a problem here. 0-for-6 and Edwin Rios-like ABs is not gonna cut it.

Steve Sax said...

Let’s get it back tomorrow.

I will be screaming my head off from the third base side.

Steve Sax said...

At the Stadium!!!

QuadSevens said...

@Sax Hope you give Belli and the boys some good luck!
