Notes From Saturday's Game

  1. Charlie Haeger was excellent once again, though he had worse control of his knuckler this time around (7 IP, O Runs, 3 Hits, 7 K, 4 BB, 100 pitches - 66 for strikes).
  2. Matt Kemp's 18th HR may have just landed (~449 feet, sidewalk behind the Dodger's bullpen).
  3. Casey Blake hit his 15th HR.
  4. Kemp was the only Dodger to reach base more than once (HR, Single).
  5. Jonathan Broxton pitched the 8th in order to face Milton Bradley and righties Derek Lee and Aramis Ramirez. He K'd both Bradley and Kosuke Fukudome swinging.
  6. Broxton could really use a rest. I hope he isn't used Sunday, as that combined with the off-day Monday would be ideal for the big man.
  7. George Sherrill pitched through a shaky 9th (Single, BB) to finish the game. He K'd 2, both swinging.
  8. Andre Ethier, Russell Martin, and James Loney all had the day off. Ethier came in as a defensive replacement in the 9th.
  9. A swarm of bees made camp in the left-center bleachers.


Just realized that I've been mis-reading Yahoo's game logs, seeing ground balls/fly balls to mean ground ball and fly ball outs. My bad. Won't happen again, just ignore the previous 10 + mentions of that in the Notes posts.
