Games 83-85 Thread: June 28-30 @ Giants

Fri 6.28 7.15p: Knack vs. Webb
Sat 6.29 4.15p: Glasnow vs. TBD
Sun 630 1p: Paxton vs. TBD

Lots of injuries on the rosters of these two rivals. While we try to push through losses to Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Mookie Betts, Walker Buehler, and Max Muncy (not to mention Clayton Kershaw, Michael Grove, and Joe Kelly), the Giants are suffering through injuries to Jung Hoo Lee, Blake Snell, Keaton Winn, Mike Yastrzemski, and Kyle Harrison.

San Francisco might get Lamonte Wade Jr. back for this weekend series, though. I haven't heard of any returning Dodgers scheduled for this weekend (though I expect we'll have Will "Slappy" Smith back in the lineup, sitting recently due to a slump at the plate).

Which means we'll probably see more Cavan Biggio, Chris Taylor, and Austin Barnes this weekend, I reckon.

And that makes me the stick figure in the middle of the above picture.

spank said...

i got a nice little buzz for this game. I'll drink one for you karen and for you saxy.

Steve Sax said...

I already had my first one at Benny Boy Brewery in Lincoln Heights!

Steve Sax said...

Padres trounced the Red Sox today. They’re starting to get hot.

Steve Sax said...

Ohtani Ks to start the game. Eric Miller gets the start in a bullpen game.

Then Slappy flies to right.

spank said...

Ohtani either looks savage at the plate or hopeless like he did in his first at bat

Steve Sax said...

Wait, the Giants already have the lead?! C'mon, man.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers stinking it up on national television, once again

Steve Sax said...

Teo grounds to short.

Steve Sax said...

Pages with the first baserunner, a bloop over first that he stretches into a double

spank said...

pages double

Steve Sax said...

Rojas with an RBI!

Tie game.

spank said...

Rojas wants a steady job. the fuckers earning it.

Steve Sax said...

Why is Glasnow giving up doubles all over the place?

karen said...

Never, ever, ever make the first out at third

Steve Sax said...

Matt Chapman tries to steal third, after a leadoff double, and gets caught stealing for the first out. Which was good, as Conforto also laced a double, so Chapman would have scored.

Steve Sax said...

This looks like another one of Glasnow's shitty starts. I seem to recall seeing a couple of these at the Stadium this year.

Steve Sax said...

Nice catch, Pages. Two out.

I really like Smoltz's analysis of Glasnow and why he's off, and the ump and where he's giving grace vs. calling it tight.

Steve Sax said...

Glasnow gives up two doubles and yet no runs in the second.

1-1 through 2.

Steve Sax said...

OHTANI!

Steve Sax said...

He was down 0-2 and worked it back to a homer on the sixth pitch.

2-1 LA

Steve Sax said...

Lots of Dodger fans there at Birdshit Park!

spank said...

savage!!

Steve Sax said...

Great catch by Ramos in deep right center to get out Slappy.

Steve Sax said...

It looked like Heyward was walking to the ball out there in right. What the hell, Jason?

Steve Sax said...

That's the fourth double that Glasnow has given up, and it's only the bottom of thr third (none out).

Glasnow is so off today.

Steve Sax said...

Soler gets nabbed by Rojas at third for the first out. Excellent play by MiggyRo there, on another Giants baserunning gaffe.

karen said...

Error on Biggio

Steve Sax said...

Biggio you fucking suck! Can't get the ball out of your goddamn glove to throw the runner out. Unbelievable.

It's 4-2 SF

Steve Sax said...

Biggio AGAIN too fucking slow at third.

spank said...

throw in the towel. throw the goddamn towel on glasnow

karen said...

What is up with Tyler????

karen said...

MiggyRo! 5-3 Evil Empire

karen said...

Wow, that dropped ball at the plate saved us

spank said...

karen said...

Biggio is going to be the death of us

spank said...

Steve Sax said...

This game is bananas

Steve Sax said...

Took the dog for a walk and we regained the lead!

Steve Sax said...

Vesia gives up the lead.

6-6

spank said...

BOOOO

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, Ohtani flies out.

Steve Sax said...

Flipped over to radio while I went for a swim in the pool. I thought it was hilarious listening to Stephen Nelson and Rick Monday mocking the Giants' "beat LA" aloha shirt giveaway at Birdshit Park today.

Steve Sax said...

I've got a really bad feeling about this Chapman AB here

Nope! Petersen strikes him out! Wow.

6-6, going to the seventh
