Dodgers Notes From Thursday's Game 6/24/2010

Dodgers 10, Anaheim 6

Box Score.
  • Charlie Haeger went 4.2 innings in his return from the DL (4 ER, 5 Hits, 4 K, 4 BB, 1 WP, 1 HR Allowed, 102 pitches - 56 for strikes). Two of the runs charged to Charlie were inherited runs allowed by the pen.
  • Bullpen: 4.1 IP, 2 ER, 7 Hits, 6 K, 2 BB. 6 Relievers.
  • Manny Ramirez (2 Singles, BB), Casey Blake (Double, 2 Singles), James Loney (Single, IBB, HBP), and Jamey Carroll (3 Singles) each reached base 3 times, while Matt Kemp (2 Singles), Rafael Furcal (Double, Single), and Russell Martin (2 BB) each reached base twice.
  • The offense struck out 7 times, drew 4 walks, and had 3 extra-base hits.
  • Chad Billingsley may be near a return, this Monday barring a setback. Let's hope he's back then.
  • The Dodgers signed Jesus Colome, 32 and a reliever, and he's in AAA.
  • A second lighting delay this season. Joy.
I've said this in a few places, but I do not hold Matt Kemp responsible at all for his "part" in last night's 9th inning. Brian Fuentes balked, plain and simple. Kemp should be taking a secondary lead when the pitcher begins to motion towards home plate, which is what Fuentes did. The fact that it wasn't called a balk, as it clearly should have been, isn't Kemp's fault.
