Game 92, 2015

Well, let’s call this the rest of Game 91 as well as Game 92. The Dodgers are still at the Nats at 1:05PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FS1 and MASN. But Friday night’s game, suspended due to electrical power failure (not home run power failure, since it featured four-baggers from Adrian Gonzalez of the Dodgers and Yunel Escobar of the Nats), will be resumed at 11:05AM PT. It’s anybody’s guess who’ll be pitching for either team.

In the regularly scheduled game the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw makes his first start of the second half, hoping to improve on his 6-6 record and 2.85 ERA. His opponent will be Doug Fister, who’s 3-4 with a 4.08 ERA and a long layoff: he hasn’t pitched since July 6. He spent the latter part of May and the first half of June on the DL with a tight forearm.

Below the fold, some evidence that current players know how to use social media.

Looking at the time stamps, I wonder if Scherzer saw Joc’s tweet and borrowed it, adding the reference to one of her hits to distinguish it from Joc’s.

  1. Can I offer a very belated: We win!
    (And now back to dinner with my parents.)

  2. After last night’s half game and today’s one and a half, I am beat. Not sure how these guys do it, but I am looking forward to tomorrow’s matchup.

  3. Out for dinner with my parents tonight. Hope the Dodgers keep on cruising and split today.

  4. You mean it’s been 2 hours since Bob Henley posted? Wow, he is enjoying his moment in the sun!

    • Hey Package. Started melting around the 5th inning. Don’t see how these guys do it. Tomorrow supposed to be really hot.

  5. Hopefully Kershaw keeps on cruising and we don’t need much of the pen in this second game.

  6. I keep watching MLBTR for a big Dodger trade but I know it won’t happen. Not this FO’s style. They’ll do something, but we’ll be underwhelmed and shaking our heads, just wondering what it’ll mean. Sometimes I wonder what the payoff is for being a fan, are we all just masochists?

    • All the other teams’ fans are watching too. Nothing much will happen until the deadline approaches more closely.

    • How hot and humid is it? I have awful memories of summers in Annandale, mowing our 1/2-acre sloping lot, head surrounded by gnats, sweat pouring off me…

      • Been fairly benign most of the summer. Early morning rain cooled things off a little, but turning into the normal summer day. Tomorrow is to be the hottest day of the year.
