    Houston will be eliminated from AL West contention with their next loss AND if Texas or Oakland win one more game. #mlbdeathwatch

    • Bob_Hendley

      Light them up!

    • Jack Dawkins

      Dodger magic number is 29 I believe.

    • http://underdog.typepad.com/ underdog

      The Astros were all but eliminated when the season started so kudos to them for hanging on this long! ;)

  • mike_tink

    Jon, 54 games, 44-10.

    • http://www.dodgerthoughts.com/ Jon Weisman

      Sorry – thanks.

  • http://underdog.typepad.com/ underdog

    Every game counts so I know this is silly but I do wish Kershaw or Greinke, at least one of them, were pitching in the Red Sox series since there’ll be such a spotlight on that. The Sox won’t be facing our best two BUT Ryu at home has been excellent. And first, let’s get this one!

    Happy breakfast game everyone.

    • Bob_Hendley

      We going to have a national broadcast for any of the games against the Bosox?

        • Bob_Hendley

          Need to gird myself for all the upcoming Puig BS.

          • leekfink

            This is triple-plus ungood. It interleague play, which is awful; the national broadcasts mean Puig navel gazing nonsense (rather than pointing out that after nearly 3 months, he’s obviously for real); and the “national” “broadcasts” (which are either not national or not broadcasts–discuss) means no Vinny.

      Maybe the only thing he can’t hit at this point. NL POM in July and having a torrid August as well.

      Setting up the triple play.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Kersh needs an adjustment like Zack made last night.

  • Bob_Hendley

    On gameday. Can’t tell who is more erratic, the ump or Clayton.

    • btimmer

      Clayton

      • Bob_Hendley

        Well, the two of them are driving me nuts.

  • Bob_Hendley

    For those with eyes, shallow flyout to Puig or fear of the gun?

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      both….would have been out by 30 ft

      • dalegribel

        So he saves a run. There’s now one in the bank for his next “lapse”. Someone please inform Plaschke and Morosi.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    One of the many pieces of wisdom I remember from Vinny is ‘It’s sometimes better to be lucky than good.’ . . . Until he gets good again, at least Kersh is lucky.
    Now let’s score some runs!

  • dalegribel

    Reds strike first. up 1-0.

  • leekfink

    Now Mattingly has benched Hanley! It’s madness–tomorrow he’ll probably bench Kershaw!

    • mike_tink

      he said before the series that Hanley would start 3 of the 4 games

      • leekfink

        It’s possible that I am violating Rule 7 AND 8, by sarcastically continuing to pick on the Plashke, etc. “Bench Puig” crowd.
        But I am willing to bet he benches Kershaw tomorrow!

  • RBI

    Is Clayton getting squeezed as much as Gameday says?

    • Bob_Hendley

      I already asked. Btimmer says that it is all Clayton’s fault.

      • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

        i agree with Btim

      • RBI

        ‘kay. Thanks, guys.

    PUIG!!

  • Jack Dawkins

    Game day say in play no out, then Puig flies out sharply….which is it?

    • Bob_in_Vegas

      Double — thought HR but hit the top of the wall.

      • Jack Dawkins

        Thanks, looks like the 422 mark. Talk about right swing wrong ballpark.

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      1 foot shy of a hr to dead CF hit the top of the wall ended up a double…he thought he hit it out was running with his head down to 1st base

    • Bob_Hendley

      They had to wait for the official scorer.

  • scooplew

    According to Gameday, Puig went 2-for-3 on that at bat — single, line out, double.

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    C’mon, gotta get the run!

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    PUIG!

    I like knowing it’s gonna be good before hearing it!

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    I hope running on the basepaths doesn’t affect the Kid (in this game, can’t really tell!) — but I’m sure he’s glad he was out there running!

    • dalegribel

      This season, I would hope he’s kind of gotten used to it.

      • Bob_in_Vegas

    Again, the scoring with 2 outs.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    go to third AJ WP!

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Skip!!!

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    I’m getting back a little of that lovin’ feeling from before the back-to-back losses — that the Blue can score from anywhere in the lineup . . . no matter how many outs there are.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    72 pitches after 5…we’re good

    • Bob_Hendley

      Yep. BTW, you looking forward to an appearance by the bearded one?

      • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

        me too..want a few more though

        • Bob_Hendley

          Its hardly a test if there is no pressure.

          • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

            want to see him just against MLB players 1st…then we can add the pressure later

          • Bob_Hendley

            Sure, but the fish are like cutting bait.

      • ASW1

        Heard somewhere that someone offered Wilson $Thousands$ to shave that ridiculous beard – if true, wish Wilson would have taken him up on it.

      • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

        Has he dyed it blue yet?

  • ASW1

    Took a few innings but Kershaw firmly in the zone now.

    • ASW1

      Even when he’s “off” still can’t score on him.

  • ASW1

    I wish Collins and Lyons would knock off talking about the Kid throwing no-hitters and perfect games fercryinoutloud – they been harping on it all day. No hitters are nice but fluky – let alone perfect games. Nothing fluky about Kershaw.
    Enough already.

    • WBBsAs

      Don’t expect any insights from Collins and Lyons, and you will not be disappointed.

      • ASW1

        Yeah – listening to these two really makes me miss Vin when the Dodgers hit the road.

        • WBBsAs

          Vin is irreplaceable but, next year, the Guggenheimers will hopefully decide the team needs other announcers commensurate with the Dodgers’ talent.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    nice inning Clayton …for those of you who care 83 pitches

    ESPN Stats & Info ‏@ESPNStatsInfo9m
    Yasiel Puig’s 4th-inning 2B at Marlins Park went 436 ft. Would have been HR at 27 of 30 parks (Marlins Park, Minute Maid Park, Chase Field).

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    Gonzo!!

    • ASW1

      That one would have been a Tater in a few parks as well.

      • Bob_Hendley

        On the bright side, the dimensions help reduce the chances of seeing that thing in leftfield light up.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      Signed a 3-yr/21 mil contract this past offseason? Don’t know who his agent is, but he’s good, damned good.

      Chapman went 2 innings last night.

      • Bob_in_Vegas

        Go, Reds!

  • Bob_in_Vegas

    Did not like the start of the game, but just about everything since: scoring in three different innings . . . with 2 outs . . . nice defensive plays . . . no runs — earned or otherwise — given up by Kersh . . . and, hopefully. a turning of the pond in the standings.

  • http://www.dodgerthoughts.com/ Jon Weisman

    One out later, Aaron Hill singles. Runners on first and second.

  • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

    Okay, bearded guy, close it out.

  • btimmer

    The best part is the blue scrunchy in the beard.

    • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

      Oh come on. ;)

    • ASW1

      I’m leaving the possibility open that Wilson and his ridiculous beard could grow on me.

      • Bob_Hendley

        That’s an ugly thought.
