From the Bay to El Lay
The Dodgers took 2 out of 3 from the Giants!
Friday 9/11: Our warrior Hiroki Kuroda gave us 8 strong innings.
Casey (at the bat) Blake returned from five games off with a three RBI homerun!
Dodgers own Matt Cain. He is 0-7 lifetime against the Dodgers while Hiroki Kuroda is 5-1 against the Giants.
Vicente Padilla improved to 3-0 since joining the N.L. West turning in six solid innings.
Russell Martin & James Loney homered on Saturday. These two are heating up! Torre needs to keep James (ballgame) Loney in a grey uni. All his homeruns (12) have been on the road.
Sunday 9/13. Ahhh the matchup of Chad Billingsley and our old pitcher Brad Penny who really, really (haha remembering Jane’s book “An Ex To Grind”) wanted to “beat LA“.
You see Penny left the Dodgers on not so nice terms. For one, the Dodgers didn’t believe Penny last season when he said his shoulder was hurt, and he didn’t take that very well. After Penny signed with the Sox he let the Dodgers know how he felt.
Then Larry Bowa responded.
“You mean the same guy (Penny) who was never on time, out of shape and has one complete game? He has more stuff to worry about in the A.L. East than me. He has to worry about getting people out. He was never on time, was out of shape and never helped the kids out. Put that on the (expletive) dot-com. Put it in the headline.”
Upon his arrival to the Giants Penny met with the media, and one reporter asked him about pitching in front of 42,000 Dodger hating fans. Penny interrupted the reporter, then corrected him; “You mean 42,000 and one.”
Vin Scully mentioned Sunday that Larry Bowa and Penny met behind closed doors.
Penny did beat the Dodgers 2-7 but heck the important thing is that the Dodgers took the series!
I am really, really worry about Chad Billingsley. Like Vin Scully said “the mistery of Chad continues.” Chad has struggled big time in the second half.
The Pirates are in town starting tonight!.
The matchup is McCutcheon against Jon Garland.
