Notes From Wednesday's Game

  1. Randy Wolf was very good once again (7.1 IP, 1 ER, 5 Hits, 5 K, 2 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 109 pitches - 75 for strikes). I would have let him finish the 8th though.
  2. Was there really a need for either Sherrill or Broxton to pitch? I realize both had gone 3 days without pitching, but with Broxton having pitched so much recently and having dealt with the toe injury, and Sherrill feeling pain in his side yesterday, another day of rest would not only have been beneficial, but was clearly available with the situation that presented itself.
  3. James Loney was pitiful again homered (!) for the first time since July 10th, his 8th of the season. All have come on the road.
  4. Andre Ethier went deep twice, numbers 26 and 27.
  5. Ethier (2 HR, Single) and Manny (Single, BB, HBP) reached base 3 times each, while Loney (HR, Single) and Orlando Hudson (Single, BB) each reached base twice.
  6. Rafael Furcal was shitty shitastic more of the same, which can kindly be characterized as shitastically shitty. Move him to the 8th spot Joe.
  7. The Dodgers grounded into 3 double plays.
  8. Vicente Padilla takes the mound tomorrow.
