Dodgers and J I N T S Final series

Dodgers took another series by beating the J I N T S two out of three!  

Dodgers outscored the Giants 22-11.  

Highlights of the series:

  • Grand Slam by Belliard off Brad Penny 
  • Back to back homeruns by Kemp (25)and Loney (13).  For Loney that was hist first HR at home.
  • Garland pitched eight innings without allowing an earned run Saturday  
  • Randy Wolf .  With six innings he surpassed 200 innings for the first time since 2003. He’s 6-0 with a 2.41 ERA in his last eight starts, all quality starts.
  • Ethier belted his 31st homerun with a man on base for the Dodgers’ first 100 RBI season since J.D. Drew in 2006, the first 30/100 season since Adrian Beltre in 2004 and the first by a Dodgers outfielder since Shawn Green in 2002.

 

Mike, a fellow season ticket holder was showing us this coin that he received from a General in Iraq  where he has been sending Dodger giveaways and other Dodger memorabillia.

Julia,
It used to be stronger back in New York but it continued here. It is just lately that it has cooled down with one team not doing as well.
I am looking forward to this event

Its never fun losing badly. The Indians know how that feels. Jeez… I don’t even watch anymore, it is just torture. Great post Emma, new post up.

Jane,
thanks ! I can’t wait to see Ross Porter! He covered the Dodgers for so long and he used to do Dodger Talk.

Emma, I’m going to be at the game on the 29th. I’m so excited!!

Kaybee,
My friend LTD23 and I have been there for the Opening series, the setup series so we just might be there for the closer series.

Happy for the Dodgers but I was kinda hopin’ they’d skid a bit more to give us some drama in the NL playoff hunt. Oh well. That coin is pretty neat! I’m sure the soldiers in Iraq appreciate your friend’s good deeds!

Jeff,
haha. How about your team skid to make it more interesting. Yes, that is nice of Mike to do that although he is a little crazy. He was talking about walking to Dodger Stadium from Sherman Oaks the day before and he actually did it the following day. I think he is in his 60′s and it took him 5 1/5 hours to walk. I told him you could have taken a bus but he said “oh no, I have a car. I wanted to walk” No way could I do that.

Happy Birthday to Tom Lasorda!! Today he is 82 years young!
