He's having a huge year.  Looks like it won't be just entirely on Kershaw this year.  [thumb]

Dodgers are the best team money can buy.  [biggrin]

Should be a good series.  I'm watching as I'm typing.

I thought Counsell was nuts for accepting the job to manage the struggling Brewers last year, but everything's coming up roses it seems.  Oh me of little faith.

Congrats Houston.  Deserved champions and the "city needed this after Harvey".  Whatever the hell that means.  

Fucking Dodgers.  Darvish looked like a player throwing batting practice with his "shut down" 21.6 ERA in his two WS starts over less than 4 innings, combined.  And lest he shoulder all of the blame, how about Jansen hacking up a save opportunity in game 2 and Kershaw hacking up a 4 run lead in game 5, both losses.  And of course, we can't forget the team batting average for the series at a blistering pubic hair over .200.  And for good measure, a managerial fuck up or 10 by Roberts.  Entertaining Series, but do any teams I support know how to win a fucking game 7 at home??  And Bellinger's all time 17 strike outs in 28 ABs?  His season average was 30% strike outs,  For the WS, he doubled that to a whopping 60%.  It was a top to bottom choke job. 

The team that played better deserved to win...and did.

I got out to the park last night to hopefully see the Brewers put the brakes on a dreaded second half skid.  The Brewers came out flat, but eventually pulled off a win in the 10th against the favorite team of one of our esteemed members, bringing the Brewers back to 1.5 games behind the Cubs.

Not the best night at the plate for Brewers slugger Jesus Aguilar.  It was pretty much the Cain and Yelich show last night. And, the pitcher, Guerra, had two hits, one a double off the left field wall.
[Aguilar]

Thames was also rusty in his return to action.  Moon rise over Miller Park on a beautiful summer night.
[Thames_scoreboard]

Home Run Derby king Bryce Harper was not in the lineup, but came in to pinch hit, striking out yet again.
[Harper_scoreboard]

Called strike 3.
[Harper_strike_3]

At least Scherzer got to enjoy his bubble gum.  Brewers are off to face the Giants in SF tomorrow after day game with the Nats today.
[Scherzer]

Looks like it was a nice night to catch a ball game, Chris.  And nothing like playing the Nats to cure whatever ails you.  [frown]

Well, Nats got some payback today.  They didn't get many hits, but really made Peralta pay for all the walks.  Harper was in the lineup today.  Struck out the first two times up then hit a three run homer on a first pitch curveball up in the zone.  Pretty much feast or famine with Harper I guess.  But, with a low 200s batting average, appears to be a lot more famine than feast.

Well, with the Giants and Nats out of the postseason, I'm pretty sure nobody here really cares.  But, my Brewers are still in it, so I'm posting something, like it or not. 

I got out to Game 162 today to hopefully see the Brewers win the NL Central and Christian Yelich win the NL Triple Crown, but I got to see neither.  Still, I got to see the Brewers win an 11 run shutout of the Tigers to force a tiebreaking game with the Cubs tomorrow for the division.  Go Brewers!

Yelich seeking the first NL Triple Crown since 1937.  Going into today's game, Yelich led the league in batting average and home runs, but still trailed the Cubs' Javier Baez in RBIs. 
[DSC_0082]

With runners on second and third for the Brewers later in the game, the Tigers intentionally walked Yelich, depriving him of the opportunity to get the 3 run homer he needed to pull into the lead for RBIs (and to tie for the lead in home runs, as it turned out).
[DSC_0228]

Yelich left the game with a tip of the hat, going 0-2 with two walks.  No doubt, he will not be getting many pitches to hit now in the postseason.  If he doesn't get the NL MVP, it will be robbery.
[DSC_0262]

Aguilar adds to his home run total and 100+ RBIs.
[DSC_0116]

[DSC_0119]

Braun rips a double.
[DSC_0247]

[DSC_0248]

The traditional sausage race at Miller Park.  Today it was a relay with the kids running the second leg to the finish line.

It will be fun to watch Chris.  Brewers seem like the team to beat in the NL. I'm  a Dodgers' fan, first and always, but follow and support the Nats as the local NL team.  AL isn't real baseball, IMO.  [tongue]  Anyway, maybe our teams will see each other in the NLCS.

Dodgers look good and Kershaw looks unstoppable, as usual.  I'm a little worried about that matchup with the Brewers.  Even these games with Colorado have been a little too close for comfort.
