Nothing stranger than Dodgers loss to Marlins

Stephen Dunn

In a game that was decided quite early, ultimately a 13-3 win for the Marlins, all I could think of was 'The Stranger.'

Anthony pitched in his big league debut, notching one in the win column.

Desclafani got run support from his club, who said, 'Disco, we'll score off Maholm.'

The second frame could give you a heart attackackackackackack.

You oughtta know by now.

Who needs strikeouts totaled more than walks?

Is that all you get for your money?

And it seems such a waste of time, with Ryu's return not in doubt.

With what Maholm's giving up, it's tiiiiiime to move out.

***

A bottle of white, a bottle of red.

Perhaps something other than ERA instead.

Paul gave up 10 runs to get burned.

Because by his defense he was burned, only half the runs were earned.

A bottle of red, a bottle of white.

14 baserunners made for a short night.

But tease it anyway you please, Maholm's night was not a breeze.

***

Juan Uribe was the popular teammate, whose hamstring kept him on the pine.

But after missing five games and 12 runs down they threw him a line.

Nobody looked any finer, than Uribe running with his left field liner.

Who knew being down 12 runs they could put up a fight?

Surely Juan Uribe will be ready to start Friday night.

***

At least we got to see Drew Butera pitch the ninth inning. Nothing could be stranger than that.
