Ya know, good for them. I was getting so tired of the FOX talking heads Brewers fanboy cheerleaders. Happy my Dodgers won, happy for the attitudes, it means they started to care about winning. On to beat Boston and win the World Series!!

Memories from Tommy Lasorda, on the Yankees and Mickey Mantle. I'm with you tonight Tommy, one heck of a ball player.

I was actually feeling good about this game even if they lost. That was up until Roberts pulled Baez. They kept the game close but that HR given up by Wood was devastating.

to bad it ended the way it did. We didn't even last through the entire game. At least we have another shot. Hopefully tonight will produce a better result for us Dodger fans.

Pretty much a must win game tonight. I guess it might be a good thing Price pitches. What are the odds he has two good games back to back?

Those bias FOX announcers are horrible, pretty obvious they are cheering for Boston. So watching the game, FOX comes back from one of their gazillion commercials, and everyone is cheering and suddenly it's 8-4. Huh? Then the batter is out and back to commercials. Have no idea what happened other than I guess Boston hit a home run. Just awful coverage.


Come on Dodgers.

I never cared for Joe Buck but really have grown to dislike John Smoltz. Not surprised to see him like this. He probably hates the Dodgers being a Braves pitcher for all those years. Then you factor in he played for Boston.

Yes, it was a close game but got scary after Kershaw left in the 5th. I flipped it over to the news for a short time and kinda surprised how fast the Red Sox ran up the score, 8 to 4. Kinda expect it at Fenway, maybe things will change in LA.

I fell asleep in the 13th. Happy to see this morning Dodgers won in the 18th inning. 18th? Longest game in WS history.


Max Muncy's home run leading off the bottom of the 18th inning finally ended the longest World Series game in history early Saturday and gave Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over Boston that drew the Dodgers to 2-1 in the best-of-seven matchup.


Let's get another win today!

That was a great pitchers dual last night, Buehler was awesome, I set the DVR to record just before 1AM, then couldn't sleep and got up around 2:30 to watch it for a while and extend the record time on DVR, then saw Muncy do his thing. I bet he drinks Schlitz beer, he has gusto. Ballinger later made up for getting tagged out while trying to steal second, with another great play that prevented Kinsler from scoring. Machado's embarrassing lack of hustle to first, which he might have been able to make second had he ran, fortunately did not matter. I like Freese & Turner, I remember Freese from the 2011 Cardinals and his big swing in the critical WS game which sent the Rangers into a tailspin. Hope he does it again for the Dodgers, when the heat is on.

I'm sure Tommy Lasorda was impressed with last night's win, some things make him happy, and some things don't.

Tommy Lasorda is not impressed,
