My mind is going kljadhfklajhkkjacl.
Not only have 10 games have gone by since the Dodgers last lost, 27 innings have passed since they last gave up a run.
Despite more running errors than Larry, Moe and Curly in a five-legged race, Los Angeles made it to the historic 42-8 mark in their past 50 games with tonight’s 5-0 victory over Philadelphia.
The feats are so indescribable that I’m going to try to keep trying to make up words to describe them.
The team’s resident ace, Clayton Kershaw, again appeared to have no-hit stuff, throwing four perfect innings before he himself hit an RBI double to give the Dodgers a 2-0 lead. A worst-case scenario followed, with Kershaw spending the rest of the top of the fifth inning on the basepaths until the inning ended with one of the Dodgers’ four double plays.
Kershaw allowed a hit to the first batter he faced after that, but still had an easy time of it until the eighth, the only inning that two Phillies reached base against him. Frequent Dodger nemesis Carlos Ruiz came up as the go-ahead run, but in the latest illustration of how things have changed in 2013, he went down swinging on Kershaw’s 100th and final pitch of the game.
Kershaw’s ERA is now 1.797.
Juan Uribe, who earlier singled, doubled and walked and made multiple fine plays on defense, hit a three-run homer in the top of the ninth to ice the game. Uribeatific.
They are 25-3 since the All-Star break. They have won 19 of their past 20 road games. They are jsihlknasd, quijlhbabal, blayscarfic. They are your Los Angeles Dodgers.
