Will Smith C
Cody Bellinger CF

David Price P

karen said...

Still no Mookie. Muncy on maternity leave.

karen said...

4-1 LA going to T4.

karen said...

JT is hit by the pitch up around his shoulder or maybe the face. He took first, hopefully he'll finish the game.

Steve Sax said...

Matt Beaty looks as lost as Cody

Steve Sax said...

I hope Beaty can get it back.

karen said...

Rox tie the game at 5 in mid 8. Starting to seem a little deja vu from the last 2 nights vs frisco.

karen said...

Hey Sax!! I thought I was alone here tonight!!

karen said...

Matty doppelganger needs a clean inning here.

QuadSevens said...

Time to go throw up. Bleh!

karen said...

It seems like forever ago that the Fresh Prince hit the walk off.

karen said...

Jeez, here we go to the bottom of the ninth down by 1.

Steve Sax said...

Excellent ABs there from both PH Barnes and CT3

QuadSevens said...

Come on new guy! Great time for your first hit!

Steve Sax said...

Two on. None out. B9

Steve Sax said...

@karen: very late hello back.

And hi Q7

Steve Sax said...

Wild pitch advances the runners. No out

QuadSevens said...

Hi Sax and karen!

QuadSevens said...

Tie game! Bases loaded! Nobody out! Let’s go!

karen said...

Being a Dodger fan is not for the faint of heart. Tied at 6 in B9.

karen said...

Hey Q7!!

karen said...

Here we go...AJ's got this...

Steve Sax said...

This is summing up the dodgers season right here. Bases loaded, none out, and we get one run from a walk before Smith Ks on three pitches (the last one being a ball) and Neuse Ks as well.

Steve Sax said...

And I think we are 1-53 this season in extra-inning games.

QuadSevens said...

Back to back to back strikeouts. Horrible.

karen said...

I can't believe we only got one out of that inning.

Steve Sax said...

Honestly that inning is unforgivable.

And the Giants lost by the way.

Fuck this shit

QuadSevens said...

Extra innings going exactly the way we expected.

Steve Sax said...

Someone needs to be drawn and quartered here. This is a disaster.

karen said...

GAME 2

Chris Taylor SS
Justin Turner 3B
AJ Pollock CF
Albert Pujols 1B
Austin Barnes C
Sheldon Neuse 2B
Billy McKinney RF
Luke Raley LF
Tony Gonsolin P

karen said...

Still no Mookie, Muncy and Lux. No Belli.

karen said...

We all remember what happened in Game 4 against the Rays. That loss was demoralizing and emotionally exhausting. The following day I felt like I had a loser hangover. But then came Game 5 and Game 6. I have told my daughter stories about Game 6 just about all her life and how we now had our own Game 6 and our own Mookie. The Boys need to make a move and soon but there is no fat lady singing. Not yet.

karen said...

Beautiful picture introducing Miss Sophie Kate Muncy to the world. Max shared it on InstaGram this morning.

karen said...

Austin Barnes solo HR. B2 1-0 Boys.

karen said...

Catman goes out after 5.1. Barnes homer still the only scoring in the game.

karen said...

BUCKLE UP!! Going to ninth with Barnes' second inning HR the sole run scored tonight. And oh yeah, Kenley coming in.

Steve Sax said...

Jeez, Kenley again? What the hell. This will end poorly

karen said...

Dodger Stadium crowd booed when Kenley was announced.

karen said...

Kenley walks tying run.

Steve Sax said...

Kenley got Blackmon and Story for the first two outs, then had Ryan McMahon down 0-2 and walked him.

This, unfortunately, is the Kenley we know now.

Man on first, T9, two out, 1-0 LA.

Steve Sax said...

I can't see the game, Karen (I'm back in a turkish prison), so your play by play is helpful! Thank you

Steve Sax said...

Whew! Cron Ks on three pitches.

WIN

karen said...

Kenley saves his 22nd. Dodgers 1-0.

Steve Sax said...

Giants down 6-2, B7, but threatening again

karen said...

Night Sax!

Steve Sax said...

I'll take it.

But Kenley isn't off the hook yet.

Steve Sax said...

G'night Karen!

Steve Sax said...

Pirates single and triple to start the top of the 8th; no out. PIT up 7-2.

Steve Sax said...

Giants lose, 10-2.

Giants lead whittled to two games.

karen said...

GAME 3

Chris Taylor SS
Billy McKinney RF
Justin Turner 3B
Will Smith C
Matt Beaty 1B
AJ Pollock CF
Zach McKinstry 2B
Like Raley LF
Josiah Gray P

karen said...

No Mookie, Belli, Lux or Muncy. I think Max is back next game.

karen said...

Pops Garv in the dugout for 1981 40 year WS celebration.

karen said...

Wonderful pregame celebration for the 1981 Champions. So good to see those guys. Which brings me to my question...Why on God's Green Earth is Fernando's 34 not retired?? Have I missed something?

karen said...

I am really hopeful for Jojo Gray. He was interviewed about a week ago and was both cerebral and humble. He's the number one pitching prospect in the Dodgers organization and I really hope he does well.

karen said...

Padres lose today. Bucs looking for a sweep in frisco today.

karen said...

CT3 hits a homer to start the game for the Boys. 1-1 tie.

karen said...

Kirsten announces Mookie put on 10 game IL.

karen said...

Diaz hits a solo for Rox. 2-1 CO.

karen said...

2-1 Rox mid 3

karen said...

Pollock thrown out at the plate trying to score the tying run.

karen said...

CT3 ties the game with his second HR today. 2-2 B5.

karen said...

@Sax...I just saw the 'back in a Turkish prison' remark from yesterday. You crack me up.

karen said...

After 7 Rockies 2 - Chris Taylor 2.

karen said...

Frisco wins 6-1.

karen said...

The FRESH PRINCE goes yard to put us up 3-2 in B8!!!!!

karen said...

Joe Kelly coming in to pitch the ninth.

karen said...

Joe Kelly gets his first save since 2019. He's limping though after trying to field a swinging bunt between 3rd and the mound.
