Game 151: Dodgers 6 Pirates 2

I feel like almost the exact same recap from last night's game applies to this one. All of the same themes are there.

  • Hey! At least we scored!
  • This guy that used to pitch for the Yankees did not pitch so well for us.
  • Losing is no fun
  • The Pirates lose a lot
Actually, we've got a subplot tonight. Since his near perfecto, Karstens has a 7.11 ERA, a 1.54 WHIP, and only nine strikeouts (against six walks) in his 25 1/3 innings. That's awful. Back to the plot. Opponents have a .345 OBP and a .552(!) SLG against him in that span. That's really awful. He's chalked up a loss in each of his last six starts and he's earned them.
