Games 58-60 Thread: June 10-12 @ Giants

Fri 6.10 7p: Walker Buehler vs. Junis
Sat 6.11 4p: Julio Urias vs. TBD
Sun 6.12 1p: TBD (Clayton Kershaw?) vs. Rodon

Hot off a series victory over the Chicago White Sox (which only came after a close 11-9 victory in the rubber match Thursday afternoon, in a game which had the Dodgers' win percentage at 6% at one point), the Dodgers go up to Birdshit Park for a weekend series againt the third-place Giants, 6.5 games back of first. The Dodgers certainly haven't looked good of late, dropping the last homestand 2-5 and then limping to the series victory at Comiskey Park.

Mookie Betts went 0-for-6 Thursday with 2 Ks and 9 LOB (egads!), and Justin Turner also had a 0-for-3 day with 2 BB and a K. But surprisingly, Max Muncy rejoined the lineup following a rehab stint in Rnacho Cucamonga, and he did great: 2-for-5 with 5 RBI, including a three-run HR, to lift his average to .159 (he's gaining on you, Bellinger!). So maybe there's hope for the Dodgers, with a resurgent batter with a penchant for deliveing balls to the ocean?

We've got two starters going who have notable this year for their short starts. And then we've got Clayton Kershaw pencilled in for his return off the IL on Sunday. So I'm still terrified with fear.

Steve Sax said...

@spank! I just went out for booze and drugs and they were out! Now I understand why.

Steve Sax said...

Buehler once again shitting the bed. High pitch count already in the second, and we are down 2-1.

Steve Sax said...

2-1 SF through two.

Walker got a 1-0 lead gift and he again gave it right back up. Just like against the Mets.

Steve Sax said...

Betts is at least 0-for-his last 12.

Steve Sax said...

Now down 3-1 through four.

Walker Buehler is not good. And the city connect uniforms make him look even worse.

spank said...

spank said...

damn. based loaded for joc

karen said...

I'm pretty sure I don't love Joc anymore.

Yep, pretty damn sure.

Steve Sax said...

Giants up 6-2. Walker Buehler is a fucking disaster. He can’t even get to the fifth inning.

Remember when he had a CG SHO earlier this season? Since then he has been shit.

karen said...

@Spanky 3:15.....Sharsies????

karen said...

For the most part I really don't like to see a player injured. HOWEVER if you're a Giant fuck, fuck totally fuck you.

Steve Sax said...

This is horrible. Even Mookie is slumping.

Come on, Dodgers! Regroup for tomorrow.

Steve Sax said...

I’ve got Dockers - Hawks coming up tonight. I don’t have a horse in that race but may as well switch channels now.

spank said...

buehler is more focused on his pants than his opponents.

karen said...

Bad News...One of the Marines killed near Glamis last week Was Capt. John Sax, son of Steve Sax. Prayers to the Sax family and to the families of all five of these young men.
