158 to go: Kuroda is good

By Governor X

A Friday night at Pooper Scooper Park usually means heavy drinking for Dodger fans, but tonight we unveiled our new secret weapon: Hiroki Kuroda. Kuroda went seven, allowing one run on three hits. Per Vin Scully, 16 of the batters he faced saw first pitch strikes. Eventually, the Padres just started flailing wildly.

For eight innings tonight, the Dodgers offense was shit putting up only one unearned run against the latest Cy Scrub, Justin Germano. I don't think Germano threw anything above 80 mph in the strike zone all night. I'm not exaggerating either. When he threw his mighty 83 mph fastball, it was near the batter's head. Fortunately the Dodgers got to face Joe Thatcher and Glendon Rusch in the top of the seventh. Thatcher promptly walked the bases loaded and Russell Martin finally got his first hit of the season to drive in two. Four more runs would follow for LA and they win the series opener 7-1.

Tomorrow afternoon: Penny at Peavy...fuck.
