The Animals’ video that Jon Abbey posted, We Gotta Get Out of This Place, sums up what everyone must be feeling. This place is downright hostile, cutting short every rally one way or another. It’s actually a bit bizarre, think about it. What are the odds that DJ, who is batting over .400 with RISP, would GIDP in two consecutive games. It’s been that kind of series, but it’s time to win one, and the right man will take the mound tonight.

Masahiro Tanaka, who has been sensational in his last two starts allowing only 2 ER in 14.1 IP.

I didn't realize how bad our record is against Oakland the last few years. Hopefully we are able to bounce back tonight.

The lineup had plenty of hits in both games, but someone needs to step-up and knock in some runs because so far 18 have been LOB. I dunno, maybe Oakland’s pitching is that good, and they allow hits but minimize runs. It’s frustrating that’s for sure.

Stanton too, when is he coming back? The last time he returned from IL he contributed fairly quickly and went 7 for 25 before being re-injured.

Stanton is aiming to get 2-3 weeks of ABs before the postseason, so first half of September sometime. Voit starts rehab games with Scranton tomorrow, he should be back a week from tomorrow if all goes well.

This game is at 9:30 EST in case anyone didn't notice that, a half hour earlier than the other two here were.

Thanks for info, I thought I had 37 minutes to get home to watch it.

We’re beyond praying. Just let all the karma fall into place. Six weeks left to get the bums healthy and ready to play.

Home field has never been more important:

Home ERA: 3.76
Away ERA: 5.43

The away games they win is when the lineup mashes.

Mike King and Deivi Garcia combined for 8.2 7 3 3 3 16 against Pawtucket tonight, especially nice to see from King.

Maybe a little less complaining and a little more swinging at strikes, Brett?

No one was more surprised that Ford made that catch than Ford himself, the bench was laughing at him.

I didn't watch the first few innings, how much of this is on the defense as opposed to Tanaka?

Cone answering this for me, just saying that DP balls not turned and a misplay that turned into a triple and it could easily be 3-2, can't do that and expect to beat good teams on the road.

The Dodgers offense worse than ours so far tonight, being shut out on one hit through 7 by Waguespack. The difference is they will come back and win in the 9th as they always do at home.
