Okay so I’m pumped to listen to the Giants and Dodgers game today. It’s the Dodgers home opener, so I would love for my Giants to take this game from them. I have my Dodgers friends texting me “Go Dodgers!”. I rushed back from the gym to start the MLB Radio. It’s just about game time. I hear the announcers….. then the radio cuts out! I tried to refresh and sign in and out and nothing! I wasn’t able to get back on to the MLB radio till the top of the 2nd inning.
The Dodgers get on the board in the bottom of the 3rd. Orlando Hudson hits a solo home run. Manny Ramirez then doubles off Johnson. That’s all the Dodgers would get that inning. The Giants did answer back in the top of the 4th inning. Bengie Molina hit a double and scored on a Travis Ishikawa single.
Andre Ethier hit a solo home run off of Randy Johnson. This year so far all of the runs Johnson has given up have been by home runs. He gave up two in his first game against the Brewers and two today against the Dodgers so far. Well I guess I jinxed them, cause they got two more guys on and Rafael Furcal hit a 2 run single. The Dodgers end up getting one more run off of Johnson. Johnson leaves the game in the bottom of the 4th inning with bases loaded. Merkin Valdez comes in to face Martin with bases loaded and Martin his a 2 run single off of him. Score is now 7-1 Dodgers. Oh mannnnnn we (Giants) suck! lol
In the bottom of the 6th inning Orlando Hudson hit a triple, and that gives him the cycle. He’s the first Dodger in 39 years to hit for one, and it’s also the first cycle ever hit at Dodgers Stadium. Okay so about 2 mins after Hudson hits for the cycle and Ramirez walks my friend (Giants fan) texts me “Giants Suck!”. I just text back no sh*t! lol Man I really want to turn this game off and just wait till Wed. when they play again. The only reason I’m not is cause I have some guys on my fantasy team from both teams. Just an FYI my Dodgers players are doing good for my fantasy team. lol Another fyi – Every Dodgers starter has a hit today and Hudson has 4 of them. I’m just hoping the Dodgers use all their hits for the series today. =)
Well I usually leave a Giants Highlights section, but there isn’t any, so I feel sorry for anybody who has a Giants player on their Fantasy team. Here is good news. If you have a Giants starting pitcher on your Fantasy team. Then they didn’t get smacked around today, but you might want to check the box score when it’s their turn to pitch. lol
Man I sound really bitter in this blog. I’m not…well kind of. Just sucks that were playing so bad. I know… I know there is still tons of games left. Okay so as I was writing that last sentence I got good news/bad news. The bad news is the Dodgers hit a 3 run home run to make the score 11-1 now. The good news is my Fantasy got Andre Either hit it and that’s his 2nd home run of the game. lol I guess you have to take the good with the bad huh? lol
Well the game that would never end has finally ended. The Dodgers bent the Giants over and spanked them for 11 runs. Dodgers win 11-1 over the Giants.
Today In Baseball History
1939 – With apparent muscle loss, especially around his shoulders, Yankee first baseman Lou Gehrig goes deep twice in an exhibition game against the Dodgers. The home runs will be the last round trippers the ‘Iron Horse’ will ever hit.
