Dodgers Notes From Tuesday's Game 4/20/2010

Cincinnati 11, Dodgers 9

Box Score.
  • Chad Billingsley went 3 innings (7 Runs [4 ER], 7 Hits, 2 K, 0 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 1 Throwing Error, 56 pitches - 35 for strikes). The 2nd inning did him in, and having basically all fastballs called didn't help either. Change it up a bit, whoever calls the pitches.
  • Bullpen: 5 IP, 4 ER, 4 Hits, 1 K, 3 BB, 1 HR Allowed.
  • Matt Kemp launched his 6th HR of the season.
  • Rafael Furcal stole his 5th and 6th bases of the season. It took him until July 3rd of last year to steal his 5th base, and July 28th to swipe his 6th bag.
  • Manny Ramirez (Double, 3 BB) reached base 4 times, while Kemp (HR, Single), Andre Ethier (Single, BB), Russell Martin (2 Singles), Blake DeWitt (2 Singles), Furcal (2 Singles), and Casey Blake (Triple, Double) each reached base twice.
  • Kemp drove in 3 runs, and Casey Blake picked up 4 of his teammates.
  • The offense struck out 10 times, drew 5 walks, and had 5 extra-base hits.
  • Jon Link, acquired in the Juan Pierre deal, made his major league debut and pitched 2 scoreless innings, allowing 0 Hits and walking 1. He faced 6 batters, and threw 27 pitches, 15 for strikes.
  • Manny started for the first time since his calf injury of late last week.


  1. I like what I saw out of Link tonight. It's a shame he needs to go back to AAA.

  2. Yeah, gotta keep the remaining Ortiz around for as long as possible.

  3. Tron could use a trip to New Mexico

  4. Tron needs to grow his beard back.
