Notes From Saturday's Game

  1. Matt Kemp sent another ball into orbit, about halfway up the right-center bleachers, for his 20th HR of the season. Manny (14), Rafael Furcal (7), and Orlando Hudson (9) also homered.
  2. Charlie Haeger had his first poor outing (2.1 IP, 4 ER, 4 Hits, 3 K, 2 BB, 2 HR Allowed, 66 pitches - 40 for strikes), but one poor inning - all 4 runs came in the 3rd - should not lead to his removal from the rotation, especially considering that knuckleballers will always have really poor starts in a season.
  3. Bullpen- 6.2 IP, o Runs, 7 Hits, 5 K, 1 IBB, 1 HBP, 1 WP.
  4. Andre Ethier, Russell Martin, and Casey Blake all had the day off. Ethier pinch-hit and stayed in to play RF, going 1-2 with a double and a run scored.
  5. James Loney (3 BB), Orlando Hudson (HR, Single, BB), and Juan Pierre (3 Singles) all reached base 3 times. Kemp (HR, Single), Manny (HR, BB), and Furcal(HR, Single) all reached base twice.
  6. Hopefully Furcal continues his mini hot-streak. He's 6-13 with a HR, 3 RBI, and 1 BB over his last 3 games.
Throw your hands up in the air, and wave 'em like
you just don't care! Come on guys, it's fun!
