Notes From Friday's Game 4/16/2010

Dodgers 10, San Francicso San Francisco 8

Box Score.
  • Vicente Padilla went 7 innings (3 ER, 4 Hits, 7 K, 2 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 1 Hit Batter, 103 pitches - 67 for strikes).
  • Bullpen: 2 IP, 5 ER, 4 Hits, 3 K, 1 BB, 1 HR Allowed. 1 Russ Ortiz sighting.
  • Matt Kemp (5) and Andre Ethier (2,3) each homered, going back-to-back in the 1st inning.
  • Kemp has now homered in 4 consecutive games, tying his career high, set last year.
  • Manny left the game in the 4th inning with a strained tightness in his right calf.
  • Rafael Furcal (2 Singles, 2 BB) reached base 4 times, Kemp (HR, 2 BB), Ethier (2 HR, BB), James Loney (3 Singles), and Casey Blake (2 Singles, BB) each reached base 3 times, and Blake DeWitt (Single, BB) reached base twice.
  • The offense drew 8 walks while only striking out 4 times.
  • That was an excruciatingly pitiful 9th inning.
  • Slash playing God Bless America on his guitar was pretty damn awesome. I could go for that. Every game in fact.


  1. When I went to bed the Dodgers were up 9-3. What the hell happened?

    A win is a win, of course, but you've got to be worried about this bullpen.

  2. "What the hell happened?"

    Russ Ortiz happened.

    And I hope he happens to get DFA'ed before today's game. He better be. He needs to be.
