    I believe he and Lyons uttered the word "no-hitter" at least 53 times before the rains came. Don't those two morons know you're not supposed to do that?!

    Stiener is a complete buffoon masquerading as a broadcaster.

        How does a team lose 13 of 14 and then win 6 straight.

            Los Angeles 5, Cincinnati 3 at Great American Ballpark

            W - Brad Penny (11-5)
            L - Elizardo Ramirez (4-7)
            S - Takashi Saito (10)

            LA 5 runs, 7 hits, 1 error
            CIN 3 runs, 4 hits, 1 error

            HR - Ken Griffey, Jr., CIN (22), Scott Hatteberg, CIN (10), Royce Clayton, CIN (1)

            Dodgers' record - 52-55 (T-3rd in NL West)

            QUICKIE RECAP: Before people start praising Colletti for all the deadline deals he made, keep in mind that this game was played at the bandbox known as the Great American Ballpark. Then again, All-Star starter Brad Penny did everything he could to stop his personal losing streak. He atoned for allowing three HRs by hitting a double to straightaway center field to open the scoring, and Kenny Lofton and Andre Ethier each had two hits, as they pounded Elizardo Ramirez for 5 hits and 5 runs in 4 2/3 innings. And in a rare occasion, Penny picked off Ryan Freel from first base in the fifth inning. Just who are these guys and what are they doing wearing the Blue? What next, a pitcher hitting a HR?

              Los Angeles 3, Cincinnati 0 at Great American Ballpark

              W - Greg Maddux (1-0)
              L - Eric Milton (7-7)
              S - Takashi Saito (11)

              LA 3 runs, 9 hits, 0 errors
              CIN 0 runs, 2 hits, 0 errors

              HR - Olmedo Saenz, LA (9)

              Dodgers' record - 53-55 (3rd in NL West)

              QUICKIE RECAP: One of the cardinal rules in baseball is to NEVER talk about a no-hitter in progress. If you don't have anything to talk about, talk about the players' lives, their tastes, their favorite bands, etc. Anything other than the potential no-hitter in progress. Which is something that Charley Steiner never learned to do. Greg Maddux had a memorable Dodger debut, no-hitting the Reds for 6 innings, facing one batter over the minimum, and after a 45-minute rain delay in the middle of the seventh inning, Grady Little removed him in favor of Joe Beimel. He then promptly surrendered a hit to Scott Hatteberg to lead off the seventh. While Beimel isn't exactly lights-out, I still say Steiner is at fault for denying the Dodgers their first no-no since Hideo Nomo's no-hitter at Coors Field 10 years ago. Lost in all the rain delays was Olmedo Saenz's HR to get closer to his career high of 15, set last year. I have a feeling that the Dodgers will not pitch a no-hitter as long as Steiner is calling games for the Dodgers.

                    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                      • Just got back from the Ravine...10 straight!! Kenny Lofton and Jeff Kent (In his first game back) shined with the bats, especially Lofton who went 4 for 5! Furcal and Lugo really showed some flashy glovework, and Penny was his usual dominating self!

                        Ricky Ledee is useless off the bench. Looked absolutley cluless as he looked at strike three. Why is he on the roster?

                        Great energy in the ballpark tonight! Lots to cheer about as we scored in almost every inning...And I had nice seats behind the plate too!

                          • The streak is over.

                            Now let's see how they respond because what usually follows a long winning streak (for any team) is a cold stretch. For the good teams the cold stretch that follows a long winning streak usually doesn't last too long.
