Notes From Sunday's Game

  1. Randy Wolf was outstanding over 7.2 IP (5 Hits, 3 ER, O BB, 10 K, 1 HR allowed, 100 pitches - 71 for strikes). He was also dynamite at the plate, going 3-4 with a HR, double, 3 RBI, and 2 Runs Scored.
  2. Wolf retired 20 straight at one point, including 5 via strikeout.
  3. The bullpen got a much needed rest today.
  4. Rafael Furcal had the day off.
  5. With Furcal resting, Matt Kemp stepped into the leadoff spot. It'll be interesting to see what Joe Torre does with the order tomorrow when Furcal returns, especially after such an offensive outburst. Knowing Joe, not only will Furcal be back atop the order (which I don't really mind) but Kemp will probably be slotted 7th or 8th again (which of course I do have a major problem with).
  6. Along with Wolf, Andre Ethier and Orlando Hudson homered.
  7. Kemp and Hudson reached base twice.
  8. Ethier went 4-5 with his 24th HR and a double. He drove in 4.
  9. Guillermo Mota looked much better today than he has in a few weeks, though it was in mop-up duty.
  10. Hiroki Kuroda was released from the hospital.
