2021 NLDS Game 4: Oct 12 vs. Giants

Probably Buehler vs. DeSclafani, 6p.

Max Scherzer pitched great (10 Ks, after a wobbly first inning). But one fluke mistake to the light-hitting Evan Longoria that went over the wall, coupled with a San Francisco-like wind that kept all of the Dodgers' other hits in play, and the Dodgers dropped Game 3 by the heartbreaking score of 1-0.

Tonight we will probably throw Buehler on short rest, in a game that the Giants don't have to win in order to advance.

Our recent success in elimination games has been great: 2021 Wild Card Game; down 3-1 against Atlanta in the 2020 NLCS. But this matchup, against a team that has been continually underestimated but has so far prevailed, seems different.

I'll be there, clenched.

LET'S GO, DODGERS!!!

QuadSevens said...

Two down. CT3 up now. Still loaded.

karen said...

I miss the crash and burn, smash mouth collisions at the plate. Another reason to hate Oyster Pubes.

karen said...

Fuck LaMont Wade.

QuadSevens said...

Dammit! That was close! We get nothing.

MOOKIE!!!

MR.F said...

Thank you Mookie!!!

QuadSevens said...

Buehler out in the fifth. Joe Kelly in now.

karen said...

@Q7...Remember when we were talking about Joe Kelly and his 'pouty face' at the Astros? I read Tim Neverett's book and he was talking about that situation. He said Kelly called it a 'a boo boo face' and after he did that I think it was Corea went over to the Dodger Dugout and spit at them. How's that for some class?


QuadSevens said...

@karen Correa has acted like trash every chance he gets with that whole situation.

MR.F said...

Okay, minimal damage

karen said...

@Q...Another point that Neverett made was this was at the height of the Covid protocol and nothing was said or done about it...well except Kelly got suspended for 8 games.

karen said...

@Mr F...It's cool to have you hanging out with us! Our Boys need all the help they can get.

karen said...

It makes me so happy that my Cody Love is contributing!

QuadSevens said...

Bellinger with another hit. He’s coming alive!

MR.F said...

@karen <3

QuadSevens said...

@karen Pretty crappy that Correa avoided punishment for that.

QuadSevens said...

Mookie with another RBI! 5-0!

karen said...

I thought Corey got a hold of that one.

karen said...

@Q..8:19....Can you imagine if Cody actually starting meeting his potential? If he gets hot we may be able to skate past the whole Max Muncy getting hurt thing.

karen said...

Buh bye Posey.

QuadSevens said...

So unlucky there for Cody.

QuadSevens said...

Is Sax running on the field to start the 8th?

QuadSevens said...

Treinen finished the seventh and is out to start the 8th. Still 5-1 good guys.

karen said...

Jeez, Treinen has some movement on his pitches.

karen said...

@Q...Didn't you know that Sax is the reason the Dodgers don't sell beer after the 8th inning?

QuadSevens said...

LOL!

QuadSevens said...

FRESH PRINCE!

QuadSevens said...

7-2 going to the ninth. Let’s close this out!

karen said...
