Notes From Saturday's Game 4/10/2010

Florida 7, Dodgers 6

Box Score.
  • Vicente Padilla went 4.1 shaky innings (4 ER, 8 Hits, 6 K, 1 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 96 pitches - 65 for strikes), and was especially shaky at the beginning and end. The delay to fix the outfield wall may have contributed, but again, it's Vicente Padilla. He also missed a squeeze sign that ran the Dodgers out of a potential rally. That, Steve Lyons, is what a rally killer actually looks like.
  • Bullpen: 4 IP, 3 ER, 2 Hits, 3 K, 3 BB [2 IBB]. 4 Relievers.
  • Jonathan Broxton was unavailable after having appeared in the previous two games, but had Joe Torre properly used his pen against Pittsburgh and used Brox in Game 2, he would have never pitched in Game 3 and been available today. It all comes full circle.
  • George Sherrill: never that good to begin with. He could use a week off just to get mechanically right. It's safe to say that spring work hasn't payed off yet.
  • Matt Kemp hit his first HR of the season, a towering, booming shot to left.
  • Manny collected hit number 2,500, an infield single. Congrats ManRam, congrats.
  • Casey Blake (Double, 2 Singles, BB) reached base 4 times, Russell Martin (2 Singles, BB) reached base 3 times, while Kemp (HR, Single), Rafael Furcal (Double, Single), and Blake DeWitt (2 BB) each reached base twice.
  • Furcal picked up hit number 1,500.
  • DeWitt has reached base twice in each of his 4 starts this season.
  • Andre Ethier celebrated his 28th birthday with a 2-run pinch-hit single. He was out of the starting lineup for the third consecutive game with his ankle injury.
