Games 61-62 Thread: June 14-15 vs. Angels

Tue 6.14: Gonsolin vs. Syndergaard
Wed 6.15: Anderson vs. Detmers
both games 7p first pitch

Swept by the Giants. Chris Taylor bloodied at the left field wall. Mookie Betts, 1-for-his-last-22 and 2-for-his-last-31. Walker Buehler, out for eight weeks with elbow issues. Only one winning series in the last four series played (four wins in the last 13 games).

Oh yeah, and now we are TIED for the divisional lead with the Padres, who beat the Cubs Monday.

This Dodgers team is going nowhere, fast. Gone are the hopes for a major-league record win number. This team is either too old to handle the aggressive schedule, or lacking a sense of urgency to compete offensively, or just absolutely lost. Two games against the Angels aren't going to help much.

Sadness. Indeed.

this lineup is not working. we probably need to shake this up.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit Mookie, please start hitting again

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers are leading 1-0 on a bases-loaded walk to JT.

Other than that we have been awful.

Here in the fifth inning, Taylor doubled and then stole third. None out.

But Lux grounds to second, and then Betts Ks. Freeman coming up so Syndergaard is removed.

If we don’t score again here, we deserve to lose.

Steve Sax said...

And, Freeman Ks. Fuck this shit.

karen said...

Are we in an alternative universe????? Just wondering.

Steve Sax said...

MOOKIE GOES YARD!!!

Steve Sax said...

Oh no. Broken bat single for Trout, but home plate umpire Tomlinson gets hit with the piece of the bat in the face. Man that is scary.

karen said...

Very scary. Brought back memories of the olden days when Steve Yeager took a broken bat to the throat.









































Very scary. Brought back memories














karen said...

Again Apologies.

Steve Sax said...

Kimbrel is about to apologize to us for blowing this game

Steve Sax said...

He’s now loaded the bases with one out

Steve Sax said...

He gets a K for the second out. Not out of the woods yet though

Steve Sax said...

Called strike three!

WIN

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow. To be fair to Kimbrel, it was Trout (whose single caused a delay of game) and then Ohtani who doubled (when the Dodgers fielders lollygagged). Then a walk.

And then two Ks to keep the win. Nice.

Steve Sax said...

See you tomorrow, kids!

karen said...

Holy crap. Is it me (well yeah, it's me just see my last comment) but did we actually win????
