Game 25, 2016

Padres at Dodgers, 6:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSSD

The Padres send rookie right-hander Colin Rea (1-1, 5.06 ERA) out to face the Dodgers’ rookie Ross Stripling (0-1, 3.22 ERA). The Dodgers have seen Rea twice before, once on Opening Day and once last season. They scored three runs on five hits against him in six cumulative innings. The Padres have never seen Stripling pitch.

  1. Good news out of SF: “Together, Caned and Peevy have allowed a staggering 43 runs in 50 innings, compared with 37 earned runs in 992/3 innings for the top three starters. Measured by ERA, that is 7.74 versus 3.34.

    The answer to the logical question is no, the staff is not prepared to think about pulling either Peevy or Caned from the rotation.”

    Quotation edited for spelling.

    • Our 4 and 5 are at 18 runs over 55 innings. In money terms, pulling those two fellows from the rotation would amount to $36 million in deadweight for the giants.

    • Sunday day game after a night game usually means a shake up in the line up in any event. Now, if Clayton is his old self again, we might just get away with scoring 2 runs and winning.

  2. This is simply unbearable but, even if nothing changes, the Dodgers will still be tied for first place.

  3. Gonzalez is hitless on the homestand, but this offensive collapse has been a team effort.

  4. Julio Urias has pitched 18 innings in three starts and a three-inning relief appearance for OKC. He has struck out 23, walked 3 and has a 2.50 ERA. He is 2-1. The relief appearance may have been to help keep his innings down.

  5. Despite the five consecutive defeats, we are currently in first place by one-half game over the Giants, who lost today, and the D’Backs, who are playing now.

  6. By my count, that is the third time in the past two days that Justin has been caught looking.
