DeRosa hits it hard but right at the shortstop. Force at second ends the inning. Lots of near misses tonight but no damage done in the third. On to the home half!
Nobody looks particularly sharp, though lots of balls getting squared up
Like your kid sister at the urinal
Ethier Manny Loney due up in the third. Weeee Mannnnyyyy
Andre Ethier went nuts this year. Lots more power than in previous years.
Carpenter's slider bounces off Ethier's back toe. That can't feel good at all. Bad luck for the Cards
I'm excited for Manny to do something awesome to silence all these cherry picking haters. He's facing a 2-1 count after Carpenter misses inside
Carpenter walks Manny now! Two men on with nobody out. James Loney coming up in a big spot. Well sort of big. Biggish. Medium sized. Smedium
Carpenter can't get the curve over for consistent strikes. Misses with the first but connects on the second. 1-1 count to Loney
Loney puts a nice swing on the third consecutive curveball but he was just out in front. Long loud out to right field. Ethier tags and moves to third.
First and third with one out for Casey Beard
How do we feel about the full time pitchmax graphic
O Dog is out because Belliard hit a bunch of home runs in September. I really think Torre is making a mistake. Hudson's a better hitter and fielder. Belliard has more power but that's it.
Blake fouls one hard off his foot. He's behind 0-2
My biggest beef is it and the camera angle aren't the same. It's straight on from center so my eyes can't agree with what the graphic shows
No sir. Not getting any gift calls and not throwing his offspeed stuff for strikes
Weird stuff. DeRosa makes a lunging, diving stop but gets up and throws about 20 feet high of second base. Ethier scores and everybody else is safe! 3-1 Dodgers!
Manny's on second and Blake's on first for Belliard with one down.
Belliard fouls off the first two pitches he's seen. He's swung at 5 of 5 pitches tonight. Brutal
Belliard strikes out like a punk. Way to make the struggling pitcher work
haha why not! Pills all around!
Makes total sense Phillas, Belliard looks terrible. two down for Russ Martin
Carpenter falls behind again, this time understandable with the pitcher on deck. 3-1 to Martin
