Notes From Sunday's Game 4/11/2010

Florida 6, Dodgers 5

Box Score.
  • Charlie Haeger, making his first start of the season, went 6 very effective innings (4 Runs [3 ER], 3 Hits, 12 K, 4 BB, 1 HR Allowed, 3 WP, 117 pitches - 67 for strikes). The knuckle ball was dancing all game long, and A.J. Ellis had his problems holding onto it, but Haeger did what he's asked to do out of the 5th spot in the rotation: keep the team in the game and eat innings.
  • Haeger struck out 7 of the first 10 batters he faced, struck out the side in the 3rd inning, and had at least 2 Ks in each of the first 5 innings.
  • Bullpen: 2 IP, 2 ER, 2 Hits, 1 K, 1 BB.
  • Manny, Russell Martin, Casey Blake, and Andre Ethier all started the game on the bench, with Dre pinch-hitting and Russell catching an inning and drawing a BB. Andre is expected back in the lineup for Tuesday's home opener.
  • Ronnie Belliard (3 Singles) reached base 3 times, while Matt Kemp (2 Singles), James Loney (2 Singles), and Reed Johnson (Triple, Single) each reached base twice.
  • Johnson stole his first base of the season, while Matty was caught for the first time.
  • Blake DeWitt did not reach base at least 2 times for the first time this season.
  • A.J. Ellis, in his first start of the season: 0-0, 2 RBIs, 1 BB, 1 sacrifice fly, 1 sac bunt. New Three True Outcomes, perhaps?
  • The offense drew just 2 walks while striking out 9 times.
