Notes From Thursday's Game

  1. Matt Kemp absolutely destroyed Jorge De La Rosa's pitch in the 1st inning, blasting his 19th HR of the year. Video here.
  2. Vicente Padilla was solid and lucky (here's looking at you Todd Helton) in his first start in Dodger Blue (5 IP, 2 ER, 6 Hits, 4 K, 1 BB, 19 0 HBP, 80 pitches - 55 for strikes). Hopefully Padilla remains solid in whatever role he has down the stretch.
  3. That role should not be starting in place of Charlie Haeger when Hiroki Kuroda returns.
  4. Bullpen: 4 IP, O Runs, 5 Hits*, 7 K, O BB
  5. Kemp (HR, Double, Single) and Manny (Single, 2 IBB) reached base 3 times each, while Rafael Furcal (Single, BB), Orlando Hudson (2 Singles), and James Loney (Double, BB) each reached base twice.
  6. Hong-Chih Kuo struck out the side in the 6th.
  7. George Sherrill and Jonathan Broxton each K'd 2.
  8. Jonathan Broxton had a plate appearance, and popped out. It was his 8th career plate appearance.

*1 of these hits was, technically, a ball misplayed in the 9th inning by Rafael Furcal. So let's pretend it had been scored properly and the pen was charged with giving up 4 hits.
