Fantastic game tonight, if you’re a Dodgers fan. The Dodgers overcame a great performance by Athletic’s rookie Dallas Braden. who seemed to have our number early on. Until consecutive doubles by Blake and Loney got us ahead 2 – 0.
Clayton Kershaw struggled but battled his way through five and two-thirds of rough innings to give him a pitch count of 105, BUT no earned runs. Ramon Troncoso torched the joint giving up 4 earned runs in two-thirds of an inning.
In the 8th inning The Foundation had an RBI single and later scored a run to tie the game at 4-4.
A rally in the 10th allowed Matt Kemp to come through with a clutch RBI single and give the Dodgers a 5 – 4 victory over the Oakland Athletics. Despite James Loney grounding into a double play right before that.
We just seem to keep coming through in so many clutch situations. We’ve seen it over and over again this season. I see some very good signs with this team. They have faced adversity in both batting (That Guy’s ‘Time Out’)) and pitching (Kuroda, Kuo), yet they have overcome these adversities and have risen to become the best team in baseball so far this season.
I wanted to show everyone why I think Twitter is so great. I keep commenting and telling everyone to follow us on Twitter. I just love it for all of the live, real-time, stream of communication that it has. But here is what I saw from all of the people that I follow on Twitter right after tonight’s game…
I love Ramona Shelburne’s comment above….
