Games 19-21 Thread: April 29 - May 1 vs. Tigers

Fri 4/29 7p: Anderson vs. Alexander
Sat 4/30 7p: Kershaw vs. Brieske
Sun 5/1 1p: Buehler vs. Ed. Rodriguez

The Tigers enter this series with a 6-11 record. Which is about what the Diamondbacks were sporting before last series, when the Dodgers' offense rolled over and played dead. Let's see if these visiting Tigers are any tamer?

Okay Sax...This picture is muy, muy better than the snake.

Even though I love the picture I am really going to be pissed if our guys get beat by these losers.

Bauer suspended for two years. He plans to appeal. I’m good if he never puts on a Dodgers jersey again.

QuadSevens said...

I had to do a double take at the pitching matchup today. Tyler Anderson vs. Tyler Alexander.

karen said...

I think most Dodgers fans agree with Q7 regarding Bauer. I know I do.

karen said...

I didn't know that the Detroit manager is none other than cheater AJ Hinch. More reason to hate this team and kick ass and take no prisoners.

Steve Sax said...

Hey Quad and karen! I’m traveling this weekend so thanks for the lineup posting and comments!

Not commenting yet on either one of those horrible people.

karen said...

So Freddie is a Cookie Monster (or as my daughter used to say a 'Cookie Monstro') and is having Snickerdoodles and Chocolate Chip Cookies delivered for the Boys everyday. He commented that nobody is unhappy when eating a cookie and it's the way to win the West. Is it just me or is this guy not just a great ball player but also a really good and decent guy??

spank said...

I wouldn't care if Bauer pitches for Dodgers again or not.

spank said...

I'm starting to warm up to Freeman.

karen said...

JT hits his first of the year!! 2-0 LA

spank said...

Oh shot JT!!

spank said...

And I was talking shit about him batting cleanup. Good.

karen said...

@Spanky...I had my mouth going about Freddie during the 2021 NLCS saying only Mr. Mercury could pull off a name like Freddie. Apologies, apologies, apologies Mr. Freeman.

spank said...

Boom..CT3!!

karen said...

CT3 solos!!! 3-0 Blue B2.

Nomar and Agone picked JT and CT3 to homer on the pregame show.

spank said...

@ Karen..haha. Yep he did it and turned our attitude towards him.

spank said...

Was that batter a interference or runners interference? I'm not listening to game audio

karen said...

@Spank...Runners, He ran inside the baseline.

spank said...

Cool. Thanks Karen

spank said...

Runners on the corners no out. Trea up

karen said...

TT sac flies Mookie in. 4-1 LA. Cheater Hinch pulling Anderson after just 2.1 innings.

karen said...

Boy there have been a lot of warning track and against the wall catches this year. I'm not loving the humidor crap.

karen said...

@ Spank...The Tigers have a KB patch on their right shoulders. I'm pretty sure they aren't paying tribute to our boy Kobe. Any ideas??

karen said...

5-1 Dodgers on what I'm pretty sure will be called an error on Mookie's grounder.

spank said...

@ Karen- Wikipedia tells me KB is Kimera Bartee, their first base coach and former Tiger player who passed away over the winter

karen said...

Thanks Spank!!

karen said...

Nice catch by Cody

spank said...

Dodgers win y'all

karen said...

Great play by TT to end the game with a WIN for the home team. 5-1 Dodgers.


karen said...

Night Spank!!

Taylor LF

Kershaw LHP

karen said...

HAPPY KERSHAW DAY!!!

karen said...

RIP Naomi Judd

karen said...

A perfect night to break Don Sutton's strikeout record. Kid K needs just 4 Ks to take his rightful place in Dodgers history.

karen said...

Doc says Sandy Koufax is Clayton's mentor and that he watches every one of Kersh's starts.

Very impressive. SANDY KOUFAX!!!

karen said...

Andre Jackson optioned and Mitch White is put on IL with Covid.

spank said...

Kershaw's breaking the record in the 3rd inning.

karen said...

First K for Clayton. three to go

karen said...

3 up 3 down with 1 K in the first for Kersh

karen said...

MOOKIE!!! Solo on second pitch of the game

Steve Sax said...

Mookie!!!

Steve Sax said...

Muncy has to figure out how to beat the switch.

Really good to hear Joe Davis on mlb network.

Steve Sax said...

Orel is doing mlb network as well!

Steve Sax said...

Wait, maybe I have the Fox Sports feed. But I’m not in the LA area. So I don’t know.

Steve Sax said...

Oh, it IS the spectrum sports net feed.

And I’m on the east coast.

karen said...

@Sax...I know you are on one of your world travels, are you going to be able to hang with us tonight??

Steve Sax said...

I can hang for a hike Karen! But it’s 10.27p here :)

Steve Sax said...

Come on Clayton. Let’s get the record tonight.

1 K so far.

karen said...

NUMBER 2 K!!!

Steve Sax said...

K! 2695 was a fastball!

karen said...

Belli 0 for last 17

karen said...

THREE!!! Ties Sutton

Steve Sax said...

K! 2696 ties Sutton!!!

spank said...

The crowd wants every pitch to be a strike

spank said...

Shit

spank said...

There it is

Steve Sax said...

YAY CLAYTON!!!

karen said...

WOW!!! I guess I can focus on getting the win now.

QuadSevens said...

KERSHAW IS THE MAN!!

Steve Sax said...

CT3 almost gets that one. Two-out double.

karen said...

I'm so happy that Ellen and the kids are there. I'm pretty sure I'm done balling my eyes out now. I just love this kid and am so thrilled for him.

spank said...

Bases juiced for Detroit. This is going to get ugly

spank said...

Damn

spank said...

4-1 Tigers

karen said...

Great AB for Cody

Steve Sax said...

Barnes comes up with a new reliever, two on and one out.

And promptly GIDPs on the first goddamn pitch.

Get rid of Barnes.

Steve Sax said...

This loss is going to be a punch to the gut for Clayton.

spank said...

Not good

karen said...

Spiderman comes in in a non save situation and makes quick work of Detroit. Still losing though :( going to B9.

karen said...

On the historic night for Clayton Kershaw his teammates let him down on offense.

We will come back tomorrow and win the series

karen said...

GAME 3

Betts RF
Freeman 1B
T Turner SS
Smith C
J Turner DH
Taylor LF
Bellinger CF
Alberto 3B
Lux 2B

Buehler RHP

karen said...

Leadoff LA is showing highlights from Clayton's record breaking night and I just can't help it, I get all teary. My former father-in-law was the head of homicide in the Palm Springs PD and he was a strong, solid man. He was from Chicago and was a huge Bears fan and I remember him telling me once that the only things that could bring him to tears were sports related. So I guess if he got teary it's okay that I do!!

karen said...

Clayton was quoted last night as saying "I wanted to brush it off but the fans wouldn't let me" and "I didn't know it would mean so much for the fans". While his teammates on the field applauded Austin Barnes refused to get into the squat and Jonathan Schoop didn't get into the box to make sure the moment was honored. So cool...I just love this kind of crap!!!

spank said...

Yeah I noticed that about Barnes and Schoop. They were just chilling in the moment

spank said...

71 degrees at the stadium. 93 degrees in Spankland

spank said...

First inning trouble for Buehler

karen said...

Miggy up with two on and one out

spank said...

Miggy Ks

karen said...

Hey Spank!! Thanks again for keeping me company!! I almost called you again last night cause I kept getting my comments bounced off again. How 'bout you?? Oh, and in my little part of the world it's only 73.

spank said...

@Karen- my comment posting has been good here. Just that one episode a few games ago. Damn y'all living the sweet life. I have the AC cranked up to ogloo.

karen said...

Mookie leads today off with a single to right

karen said...

Slappy brings in Mookie...1-0 Good Guys. B1

spank said...

Tigers announcers are boring as fuck. They need coffee or cocaine or both to liven up the joint. Back to mute.

karen said...

I really hope Alberto catches on here with our Boys. He's like our 2022 version of Kiki.

karen said...

@Spank....hehe

spank said...

Buehler in trouble again

karen said...

Butane hits Grossman to load the bases.

spank said...

Buehler pitches out of the jam but he won't last long throwing like this

karen said...

Alberto scores on throwing error at first...2-0 Blue.

spank said...

Freddie with a double off the wall. 3-0 LA

Steve Sax said...

Just checking in. It's 4-0 LA in the bottom of the second.

Giants are down 5-0 to the Nats early. Padres up 3-1 over Pittsburgh in the eighth.

karen said...

Finally a 1-2-3 inning for Walker.

Steve Sax said...

Walker Buehler lasts five. Tommy Kahnle works a scoreless sixth. It's still 4-0 LA, B6

Steve Sax said...

Cody! RBI double scores CT3 from first!

5-0 LA

karen said...

Belli gets a double to drive in CT3 after an 0 for 20 run. 5-0 LA

spank said...

Belli doubles in CT3. 5-0

spank said...

Calm inning by Vesia. 6-0 LA bottom 7th

karen said...

It's okay Bickford!! It's Miggy and he hits everyone.

karen said...

Reds start the season 3 and 19. Joey Votto has the lowest average in the league with a .122. And yet, they beat us.

karen said...

It's now a save situation and Spiderman is warming up in the cooler.

karen said...

Good game. The Dodgers win the series and Kimbrel gets the save.

Tomorrow is an off day with the Ogres of the North coming in on Tuesday for a 2 game series.
