Live Blogging Game 1 of the NLDS (#4)

CCB and a Half Smoke

Candice with her “Half Smoke All the Way” at Nats Park earlier this season.

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.
