I've Had Bowel Movements Prettier Than This Game
I know I said I wouldn't do a write up on this game, but what happened in the ninth inning just can't be left unsaid.
Andre Ethier doubled to right, and then moves to third on a wild pitch during Shea Hillenbrand's at bat. Hillie walks. Mark Sweeney hits a pinch-hit single that scores Andre Ethier. THE DODGERS SCORE ON A HIT WITH A RUNNER IN SCORING POSITION!!!! Dodger's are still losing 7-4.
Brad Lidge enters the game in relief and strikes out Rafael Furcal. One out.
Juan Pierre comes up to bat and pops a ball behind home plate in foul territory. Two outs right? Oh the play doesn't end there.
After a couple of seconds while first baseman Lance Berkman jumping up and down screaming to catcher Brad Ausmus to throw him the ball, douchebag Sweeney makes no attempt to go back to first. In fact he's still moving towards second base.
Ausmus throws to Berkman and doubles up the douche. Three outs. End of game. Even a complete idiot like Wilton Guerrero wouldn't have made that tee-ball mistake.
So how will the Dodgers lose tomorrow?
