Game Four, 2014

Dodgers at Padres, 3:40PM PST, TV: In LA, SportsNet LA. In San Diego, FSSD, FOX Deportes San Diego. Greinke v. Kennedy.


The middle of the Dodgers’ lineup has not yet begun to hit. Hanley Ramirez is hitting .091. Adrian Gonzalez is hitting .111. Andre Ethier is at .167. Anybody worried?

Update: Disappointing news about Kershaw from the pregame show: after an examination by Dr. Neal ElAttrache earlier today, his injury is “more serious” than previously thought. He may not be allowed to pitch for another two or three weeks.

Well, that stinks.

  1. I’d like to thank Bud Black for saving Nick Hundley (5 Ks in 5 ABs v. Kenley) until it really counted.

  2. Might be a good thing that Kershaw rests a month so he will be strong for end of season.

  3. Need to move Gordon into 3, 4, or 5 spot. Too bad Dee and SVS can’t be in the lineup at same time.

      • Should have been watching closer but couldn’t. Going too much by the Padre AB where it seemed every swing was making decent contact, I guess.

  4. I fear us spectators have to pace our nerves, it was game 4 out of 162

  5. Four games in: shaky bullpen and wasted offensive chances . . . but 3-1!

  6. There have been far worse pitches than a couple Greinke has thrown that actually were called strikes. Maybe the ump will settle in.
