Game 76, 2014

Dodgers at Padres, 7:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLB free game

Josh Beckett deserves better than his 4-4 won-loss record. He’s got a 2.49 ERA and his last loss was his defense’s fault. He pitches for the Dodgers at Petco Park tonight. The Padres counter with Tyson Ross, who’s 6-6 with a 3.27 ERA. His last outing wasn’t good; he walked seven in 5 2/3 innings and lost.

Lineup when available. Puig is day-to-day with a sore hip, apparently a recurrence of the flexor problem he had last week. Uribe is scheduled to play infield at Rancho Cucamonga tonight.

      • The ‘pen has become an urgent issue. Too much deadwood and even more that’s showing signs of rot. The AAA relievers can’t be any worse and may well be better; I don’t how Elbert’s rehab stint went last night.

  1. 2-run lead going to the bottom of the 9th . . . deja vu all over again?

    To quote Danny DeVito from “Cuckoo’s Nest” — “hope no.”
    (And I hope LA adds MANY insurance runs.)

  2. Let’s pick up more runs — the only defense against the bullpen is lots and LOTS of runs . . . or the SP having a no-hitter.
