Dodgers Downed In Denver By The Curse Of Pete Coors

PATTY DUKE SHOW, Patty Duke, 1963-1966

April 9, 2017 by Shannon Michael Smith

The Dodgers avoided a series sweep on Sunday afternoon with a 10-6 win (they hit left-handed pitching too!) at Coors field against the Colorado Rockies. Maeda coughed up four runs in five innings worth of work.

Kershaw surrendered back-to-back homers for the first time in his career in Saturday’s 4-2 loss.

According to sources, Kersh took it pretty badly and went on a bender at a Denver TCBY…reports were flying into rascalsoftheravine HQ all night long that Clayton had ordered sprinkles on his yogurt for the first time since he joined the majors. Someone better get him the help he needs, pronto.

In game one of the series on Friday night (a 2-1 loss) Los Dogs were held to just one run in six innings by newbie Freeland (pssst, he’s a lefty.)

Who said the Rockies stink? Well, we kidded about it, but, as Steiner warned during the radio broadcast “If the Rockies ever put together some decent pitching, look out!” That dreaded day may be a lot closer than we think.

They’re not the Cubs yet, but their pitching has improved. The Purple Gang can mash and play D. You might of heard of a fellow named Arenado (four years in the league, four gold gloves)…LeMahieu, Blackmon, Story, and Reynolds ain’t bad either.

We still think they’ll finish third in the division, but next year’s NL West race will be a lot more interesting. They obviously gave Los Dogs a run for their money.

Get ready for the Cubs to wave their damn flag in the Dodgers’ face on Monday night. Can we get Rick Monday out on the field to swoop in and burn their Championship Banner? All kidding aside, it’s a bitter pill to swallow for Los Dogs…ESPN will be gushing like Patty Duke at a Ricky Nelson concert. Tears will be streaming down Buster Olney’s face…oh the humanity!

Until next time, mirth-seekers!
