Picked the wrong night (or maybe right night) to go to bed in the 8th inning.

Papers...business papers.

I was waiting for a call from Mrs Ash to pick her up from the airport, so had to leave after Kenley gave up the dinger. Had no idea what I was missing!

Your bad luck was my good fortune, I turned it on in the 7th. 

 

Heck of a game.Though I wonder how many people actually saw it.

I don't think it went especially late, I just have two really young kids, so I get sleep when I can. Figured it was over with Kenley looming.

I always have to chuckle when announcers say stuff like this - Joe Buck: "Dodger Stadium is the third oldest ballpark in the majors but you wouldn't know it because it's so well maintained." Hello?? California?? A little harder to maintain a ballpark when we have this thing called WINTER. 

 

Minnesota snarkiness aside, Dodger Stadium is a classic ballpark though - very comfortable place to watch a game. And I don't even like the Dodgers.

There’s a no-hitter happening tonight so far

Buck was making it sound as though he'd be coming out after the sixth, regardless. I have no real rooting interest but was kind of glad Springer hit the home run just to avoid that particular controversy.

I may have misheard, but at the end of maybe the fourth inning, I thought Jack Buck closed by saying, "we have a pitchers' duel, and it's a good one". I suppose there have been bad pitchers' duels, but it still sounded dumb.


Late to the party. but JACK Buck? You misheard, old man. Napping prolly.

If you like curveballs, there's a good chance a clinic is being put on for your benefit tonight by Prof Kershaw.

Yeah, getting picked off first to score the run from third was probably just how they drew it up in the clubhouse. :)

Forgot to point out that Forsythe is playing third. Our third baseman was not on the trade block this past offseason. :)

I might have jinxed him. The Prof flunked the fourth inning pop quiz.
