Dodger Rubber game at San Pancho
Great win and much needed by the boys in Blue yesterday. I go thru so many emotions with this team from frustration to relief that they tied the series. I called San Francisco Pancho because that is one of the nicknames for the name Francisco. Another nickname is Chico, that is what they used to call my grandfather on my mother’s side. Chico Giants sounds like an oximoron as chico means small. So Rubber game at San Pancho.
Two lefties to the mound: Clayton Kershaw (12-8 2.79) against Barry Zito (10-8, 4.51) I hope Kershaw gets better run support.
OH NO! PANIC! CRISIS! Clayton Kershaw has been scratched!
Does that baseball Rubber ducky stress reliever work????
Good luck Kerhsaw
And good luck Joe Blanton! May the Dodgers give you some runs
OK, like my friend Rosie said, at least is not Kershaw’s arm. Dylan Hernandez just posted that Kershaw is scheduled to pitch at Arizona. I feel a little better.
Let’s Go Blanton! Let’s go Dodgers!
It was a beautiful night at Dodger Stadium with an almost full moon also taking in the game on Saturday.
Kershaw pitched seven strong innings giving up one run on three hits. Belisario pitched a perfect eighth and Kenley Jansen did the same in the nine to record his 21st save. Matt Kemp hit his 16th homerun.
Final score Dodgers 3 Cubs 1. Hard luck Volstad, who gave up two runs, took the loss.
Dodgers go for the sweep today when Joe Blanton makes his first start with the Dodgers. Germano will start for the Cubs.
Welcome to the Dodgers Blanton!
With the Dodgers going for the sweep today at Dodger Stadium, I was thinking “how many sweeps have they been involved in?”
Dodgers have swept at Dodger Stadium four times (Pirates, Padres, Rockies & Cardinals).
Dodgers have been swept two times at Dodger Stadium (Brewers & D’Backs).
Dodgers have swept on the road three times (Phillies, Mets & Giants)
Dodgers have been swept on the road times two times (Giants & A’s)
So the totals are: Sweeps = 7 , Swept = 4
Let’s make it five sweeps at Dodger Stadium for a total of eight sweeps overall.
