Notes From Tuesday's Games

  1. In his return to the mound following hamstring troubles, Chad Billingsley was effective over 6 IP (2 ER, 3 Hits, 1 HBP, 1 K, o BB, 9 ground ball outs - 7 fly ball outs, 77 pitches - 53 for strikes). He also contributed an RBI single to score the game's first run.
  2. Jonathan Broxton was excellent for the second straight game, throwing 1.1 scoreless innings, including inducing a ground ball out from Albert Pujols and 2 Ks (Matt Holliday and Rick Ankiel, both swinging).
  3. Andre Ethier and Orlando Hudson were each 3-4; Ethier reached base 4 times, Hudson and James Loney 3 times each, and Manny Ramirez and Russell Martin both reached base twice.
  4. Matt Kemp was held out of the lineup with flu-like symptoms. Hopefully he's felling better and is back for his big day tomorrow.
  5. Hiroki Kuroda is most likely headed to the DL. Jeff Weaver replaces him Thursday. Who couldn't see this coming?


By the way, Khalil Greene looks suspiciously familiar.

Separated at birth?
