Clayton Kershaw, LHP
3-1, 2.22 ERA
Kershaw is in Cy Young mode, coming off a duel when he out-pitched, and out-brushbacked, Ian Kennedy with seven scoreless innings. Kershaw complained a bit about his command against Arizona due to two walks, but he kept the ball in the park.

Facing another tough pitcher tonight in righty Jake Westbrook:  4-2, 2.35 ERA

Westbrook endured his shortest start of the year on Monday, when he was chased after throwing 107 pitches in five innings. Westbrook goes as his sinker goes, and it wasn’t sharp early in that outing. He allowed 11 hits and a season-high four runs.

Tonights Lineup:

  • Gwynn      CF
  • Herrera     2B
  • Abreu        LF
  • Ethier        RF
  • Kennedy    3B
  • Loney         1B
  • AJEllis        C
  • Sellers        SS
  • Kershaw    P

I think this is about as good a lineup as we can field right now with all the injuries.    Unfortunately, Dee isn’t getting it done.  I think it is time to pull the plug on him in the lead off spot.  He really needs to go down for awhile to work on things. 

Go Dodgers!!

  5. JhallWally says:

    Sounds like MEllis’ injury is his knee. Could take longer than 15 days. Really sucks as he was getting it done.

  6. trublu4ever says:

    Damn….a great catch and then a dumb-ass error!

  7. nellyjune says:

  15. nedisajerk says:

    I expect strikeout with 2 strikes.

  16. trublu4ever says:

    A few more runs would be very nice….let’s do it guys!

  17. vl4eccjr says:

  20. crash24now says:

    Tattoo! Way to go, kid!

  21. nellyjune says:

    Remember all the talk way back when in ITD land when we had trolls come on and say how much better we would be with Matt Holliday instead of Andre………idiots! He really kind of sucks as an outfielder.

  22. trublu4ever says:

    Way to go, Tony!

  23. crash24now says:

    Nice hits for Kersh and Gwynn! Kersh chased Westbrook with his double!

  24. vl4eccjr says:

    Wow! What a crazy turn of events!

  25. JhallWally says:

    Another gift… Geez, didn’t expect this shoddy play from the Cards.

  26. trublu4ever says:

    Mr. Ethier delivers again!

  27. JhallWally says:

    WTG Andre!!!

  28. crash24now says:

    Nice hit, Andre!

    I hope the extended inning doesn’t cool down Kerhaw’s arm too much. Need to be careful with him next inning.

    • JhallWally says:

      6 run lead. The bad part is that Dildon may think it is safe to use Coffey.. Geez… C’mon Kersh, close it out.

  29. nellyjune says:

    Way to go Andre!!!

  30. crash24now says:

    Kennedy regressing back to normal with an ohfer-four night.

  31. trublu4ever says:

    Fantabulous! Winning streak keeps growing!

  32. vl4eccjr says:

    Woo hoo!
    Outfuckingstanding job from Kersh!

  33. JhallWally says:

    Woo-Hoo, Win Streak!!!

  34. crash24now says:

    A beautiful gem by Kershaw!

  35. crash24now says:

    Thanks to TruMom and JHall for the Rally Panties!

  36. nellyjune says:

    Way to go Dodgers!!! Took advantage of the Cardinals sloppy play, and it’s great to see contributions from all the players in this series so far. Fabulous pitching by Kersh is always a bonus on nights like these.

  37. crash24now says:

    Kershaw’s WHIP year-by-year is amazing.

    2008 1.50
    2009 1.23
    2010 1.18
    2011 0.98
    2012 0.88 (so far)

  38. oldbrooklynfan says:

    THAT’S OUR ACE!!!!!!!

  39. nellyjune says:

    Mark (Ellie) Ellis will be out a minimum of 6 weeks. He underwent urgent surgery to relieve pressure in his leg. He will be hospitalized until Tuesday. Sucks!!! I promised my friend we would take care of him (she blames the dirty birds), as he was her favorite A’s player.

  40. trublu4ever says:

    Gnats lost…so come on Billz….pull it together tonight!

  41. vl4eccjr says:

    Where’s Vin? Why am I listening to Charlie. I see the radio broadcast is actually @ 10 to 15 seconds ahead of the ESPN broadcast here. Weird. It’s usually the other way around.

  42. enchantedbeaver says:

    NPUT just for Billz.
