The @dodgers swept the Nationals in Washington, thanks to timely hitting and bullpen!! In a season where nothing has seemed to be going right, and in the midst of a 2-9 stretch of baseball, the Dodgers show signs of life, and flashes of the 2017 team that was so full of magic!
Going into the series, playing on the road with matchups against Scherzer and Strasburg, without Kershaw and @hyunjinryu325 lining up for our Boys, there wasn’t a lot of hope facing off against a red hot Nats team, who were 13-2 over their last 15 coming into the series. Friday nights game was rained out, setting up a double header on Saturday.
@ross_stripling went 6 IP with 9 K’s allowing just 1 ER in Game 1 on Saturday. Rich Hill left after just 2 pitches in Game 2, giving our bullpen an overload. All they did is outduel Scherzer. @therealmattkemp delivered a 2-run double in the Top of the 9th to take the lead. Today, we drove the nail in the coffin with 3 HR’s, with 4 of the 7 runs scored today coming in the 8th and 9th innings.
This weekend, @yazmaniandvl, @kikehndez, @yasielpuig, @maxmuncy, @cody_bellinger each had a HR. @kenleyjansen74 had 2 saves. The bullpen pitched 15 innings, allowing just 4 ER’s!
All around, great sweep, great weekend....great day!
This is the reason why I formed @far.from.basic , having team mates who always strive for the best and build their cars for themselves. We all put time, blood, sweat & tears into our builds. I’m glad you’re back bro. @daveeedmk6 , make sure to catch the full view this Sunday at @stancenation Florida.
"Thought for today" Sorry it's long.
This is a very poor quality photo of two pieces of quite common material. They are at first glance of no real value at all. Thanks to life lessons and Gods purpose they are quite valuable to me. The scratched up green quartz is a stone I have not seen for many years. I have cut so many stones over the last 30 years I can hardly remember much about most of them but this little quartz I can tell you everything about it. The rough was purchased from Grady Harris of Creative Gems in 1990 at the Spruce Pine Show. I cut the stone, one of my very first on a broken down worn out Sapphire Faceting Machine. It was cut and put into a ring that I carved the wax and cast. I have not seen the stone for many years and today I found it in the bottom of a box of junk that had been quickly packed when we moved. Going through this junk amongst all the nuts, bolts, pieces of paper, dust this stone Popped up and said "Hello", I'm still here. You see, this old beat up stone was the first piece I ever made for my Mom. She wore it proudly for many years and was one of her favorite pieces of jewelry. Yes even amongst all her diamonds and other valuable pieces. It after many years had become scratched to the point I wanted to replace the stone in the ring for her but she insisted I "Recut" this one because of it's significance to her. Mom never got to wear her ring again and now she's in Heaven looking down smiling that she got to "PUSH" that little stone back into my hand and my life. The rose quartz has been my favorite pocket stone for years. It's gonna have to take second place now as the Green Stone is the most valuable stone I own. It's funny how things that are really important find their way back to you. Remember the little things because they can one day be the most important things. Never take anything for granted.
Great way to end a very productive day. Still gotta paint the deck next weekend, but at least we got it cleaned up... Weeds pulled, truckload of bark laid, flowers planted, lights hung, pond cleaned out, dump run, ect ect... #todaywasagoodday
I felt so nostalgic watching @marquis_halfday having the time of his life with his cousin, Brayden. Most of my favorite childhood memories involve my 2 FAVORITE cousins (who I was blessed to capture this moment with, today 😍 Love you so much @dbold1 & @ladylovemoore !!!!!). #Cousins are such a blessing in your life..... Your FIRST best friends. Your ride or dies. Oh, the stories they could share about me 😜🤪😬 Thank God they'll be taking them to their graves 😏🤐 #TodayWasAGoodDay#Cousins#Family#Memories#Love#QT
