Gotta love Dodgers-Giants. With really nothing at all to play for, Bochy managed like it was the 7th game of the World Series.
The bottom of the ninth had some great work by Scully.
I don't really care about either team and I was on the edge of my seat cursing AJ Ellis for striking out.
Wouldn't have happened without those two bunt attempts, which IMO were a mistake, to start off the AB. And if your going to pinch-run Gordon for Ethier, why wait until Ellis has made out to do it? I was at the stadium and this was an absolutely thrilling game, but it was not Don Mattingly's finest hour.
And from watching the way he reacted after his strikeouts (with increasing frustration and anger), I got the distinct impression that Matt Kemp was putting entirely too much pressure on himself to Be The Guy and win the game for the team, which no doubt contributed to his bad ABs with RISP. Somebody needed to calm him down and get him to clear his head before going up there.
Want the Braves to win if only because Tony LaRussa is still a dick.
PS The Dodgers, unannounced, were giving away bobbleheads left over from promo nights the last two seasons to fans entering the game, I thought that was a nice gesture.
