Dodgers Notes From Sunday's Game 5/2/2010

Dodgers 9, Pittsburgh 3

Box Score.
  • Hiroki Kuroda went 8 very good innings (1 ER, 5 Hits, 3 K, 1 BB, 1 WP, 97 pitches - 70 for strikes).
  • Bullpen: 1 IP, 2 ER, 3 Hits, 0 K, 1 BB.
  • Andre Ethier hit his 8th and 9th HRs of the season.
  • Blake DeWitt (2 Doubles, 2 Singles) reached base 4 times, Matt Kemp (Double, Single, BB), Ethier (2 HR, Single), James Loney (Double, 2 Singles), and Jamey Carroll (2 Singles, BB) each reached base 3 times, while Xavier Paul (Triple, Single) reached base twice.
  • The offense struck out 6 times, walked just twice, but clubbed 7 extra-base hits.
  • Ethier drove in 4 runs and DeWitt knocked in 3 during his perfect 4-4 day at the plate.
  • Kemp made a great diving catch in left-center.
  • Why was Ronald Belisario brought in to get one out when the score is 9-3? If George Sherrill, or anyone for that matter, can't get one out with a 6-run lead, they shouldn't be anywhere near a major league roster or field. Just more proof that Joe Torre can't manage a pitching staff, specifically a bullpen. I'm just shocked he didn't bring in Ramon Troncoso to get the out, what with his 896-game pace he finds himself on.
