I’m live blogging game 1 of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and (Claire’s) Los Angeles Dodgers.
Top of the 6th. Taking a bit of a break to eat my hot dogs. Thank you, Candice and Andrew for joining me in the man cave for dinner!
7:53 p.m. – And we’re through 6th, as Max leaves a runner stranded on 3rd. At 90 pitches. Does Dusty pinch hit for him in the bottom of the inning? (Depends on the situation, I assume.)
7:55 p.m. – My God. Who would take Eliquis after all the bleeding, bleeding, bleeding warnings in their ad?!
7:58 p.m. – And both starters are now gone. Difo in to pinch hit for Max. Not great, but kept ’em in the game.
8:01 p.m. – Turner walks. Let’s see if he can turn it into a double. And the call to the bullpen comes. Now for the sloooooow part of the game.
8:05 p.m. – And it takes one batter for Puig to show off and almost screw up a fly out from Harper. End of 6, still 4-3 Dodgers.
8:18 p.m. – A little too quiet at Nats Park tonight. Need some noise to energize the team.
8:19 p.m. – Time to stretch….and the forced patriotism of “God Bless America.” Of course, Andrew knows Ben Patterson, the tall tenor on the left of the Army Chorus quartet!
Time for a new thread.
More to come…
