Dodgers Notes From Sunday's Game 6/6/2010

Dodgers 5, Atlanta 4

Had free tickets for the game that I got at the Ely signing yesterday, but work and generally being tired as all hell got in the way. I hate not going to a game when I have the chance. Oh well. Damn real non-baseball life. Always trying to ruin a good time.

Box Score.
  • John Ely went 5 innings (4 ER, 9 Hits, 2 K, 2 BB, 2 HR Allowed, 93 pitches - 55 for strikes)
Ely's going to have starts like this, I hope no one honestly thought he was going to be dynamite all year, or that he was the best pitcher on the staff, or that he was the reason other guys were pitching well. Let's hope for the continued success of Ely, realizing he's no more than a Number 3, and regression is much more likely than progression. What we've seen is most likely the best Ely can be, and I'll happily take that 15-22 times a season, knowing there will be a decent number of mediocre to poor starts along the way.
  • Bullpen: 6 IP, 0 Runs, 3 Hits, 5 K, 2 BB, 1 WP. 5 Relievers.
  • Rafael Furcal hit his 1st HR of the season.
  • James Loney stole his 8th base of the season, getting a huge jump on Tim Hudson.
  • Blake DeWitt (2 Singles, BB) reached base 3 times, while Matt Kemp (2 Singles), Furcal (HR, BB) and Loney (2 Singles) each reached base twice.
  • The offense struck out 5 times, walked 3 times, and had 2 extra-base hits.
  • A.J. Ellis joined the walk-off party, though I would not have bunted with DeWitt.
  • Joe Torre apparently has no qualms over completely putting an end to the usefulness of Troncoso and his right arm. We almost had to endure Ramon Troncoso's corpsy arm again, oh how surprising that would have been.


  1. They gave you real game tickets? We just got vouchers.

  2. Yep, no idea why we got different, but what's in the pic is what we got. And they had a grip of them.
