Dodgers Look for Win on Bison's Birthday

Dodgers @ San Diego
Game 1

Ted Lilly (10-14, 4.27) vs. Wade LeBlanc (4-5, 5.07)

The Dodgers open the second to last series of the season in San Diego for a three game set against the last place Padres. The AZ Diamondbacks magic number is down to 1 in order to clinch the NL West Division title. Last night's finale at Dodger Stadium was magical, wasn't it? Not only did we beat San Francisco and take the series, but Matt KEMvP was unearthly and crushed 3 doubles and a homerun in his final at-bat of the season at Chavez Ravine. Hopefully next season we can unleash Bison's Beastmode in the playoffs.

Tonight Ted Lilly will go to the mound, and he is on a bit of a hot streak and has not allowed a homerun in his past four games which is one game shy of his personal record. Last time out against the Pirates he only allowed 1 run on 4 hits in in 7 innings. This most likely will be his second to last start. LeBlanc lost to the Dodgers back on August 31st, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings.

Jerry Sands has a 10 game hitting streak, and Dee Gordon has a 9 game hitting streak. Sands is hitting .358 since he was recalled from AAA on Sept. 6.


Gordon 6
Sellers 5
Sands 9

Velez 4
Lilly 1

Wow, this lineup looks awful. One of Donnie's forfeit-like concoctions. Good thing we are playing San Diego since we have Mr. 0 for 33 at second base tonight and Aussie boy in left field.

Today is Matt KEMvP's 27th birthday, the same number which adorns his jersey. Happy birthday, Matt! thank you for an incredible season!

Can Bison get 4 more homeruns to reach 40? Can Loney continue his incredible comeback from the dead? Can Sandman cement a spot next year on the team? Only 6 games left Dodger fans. Let's enjoy them! Join us after the game for our recap! Go Blue!
