I almost don’t want to spoil how good that win feels by talking about the details too much, so I won’t.
The Dodgers lost. The Giants won. Clayton Kershaw pitched and gave up earned runs at AT&T Park for the first time since roughly the Reagan administration. Ryan Vogelsong was one bad mother. Melky Cabrera hit the snot out of the ball. Buster Posey continued to have his Havin’ It Meter set to “ain’t”. It was good. It was real good.
Fingers crossed for another Happy Lincecum Day tomorrow and a move into first place.
*The last time the Dodgers were shut out in back to back games in San Francisco was August 15-16, 1987.
