Games 86-90 Thread: July 12-14 @ Cardinals; July 15-16 @ Angels

This picture is not an endorsement for this product. I just needed a unifying theme.

@STL Tues 12 4.45p: White vs. Liberatore
@STL Wed 13 4.45p: Gonsolin vs. Wainwright
@STL Thu 14 4.15p: Anderson vs. Hudson
@LAA Fri 15 6.30p: TBD vs. TBD
@LAA Sat 16 7p: TBD vs. TBD

I'm having to squish two series threads into one Game Thread due to travel. But I confess that I'm pretty damn giddy after a 10-1 homestand, punctuated by a crazy come-from-behind victory on Sunday afternoon in which Julio Urias shit a turd (down 5-0 with one out in the top of the first), only to see the Dodgers rally back to an 11-9 victory to sweep the hapless Cubs.

If we can play like this even with Max Muncy batting .162 and Cody Bellinger batting .211--wow, we've got a shot here.

And now the Dodgers have four All-Stars preparing for next Tuesday's All-Star Game: starters Mookie Betts and Trea Turner, and pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Tony Gonsolin. So let's enjoy these five last games before the break and everybody be cool, okay? Time for a tarot reading.

I was so frustrated in the seventh inning last night with Muncy, Alberto and Belli. Bases loaded. no out and the tying run on third. I always love those guys but WTF???? They lost the game for us on the most routine of innings. I'm hot and miserable and just don't have the patience for that kind of loser bullshit.

Gonsolin holding his own through 2 innings and Wainright. No score.

karen said...

5-0 Cards through 5.

Freddie goes the other way. Dude is 11 for his last 13 and yet we still can't win.

Barnsey stumbles around third in the ninth. Still down 6-5 nobody out.

QuadSevens said...

Muncy with a sac fly ties it up at 6 in the ninth!

QuadSevens said...

Catman is off the hook too!

QuadSevens said...

Hanser with the go ahead RBI and celebrating out of the box! The comeback from being down 6-0 is complete. Just need to hold on in the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

Kimbrel pitched the 8th, Phillips gets the 9th. Let’s go!
