Haeger The (Not-So) Horrible: Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2
The ninth inning, with the Dodgers' 3-4-5 hitters up, proved wholly anticlimactic, with Andre Ethier, Manny Ramirez, and Casey Blake going down in order against Trever Miller and Ryan Franklin in one of those pathetic outings where you hope for a longball to tie it, but all that happens is long flyouts to center. Meh.
Update: Only two of the pitches Haeger threw weren't knucklers. Interesting.
Plus Blake batting 5th is comical. Down to your last out, who would you rather have batting: Kemp or Blake?
