The Dodgers bullpen held fast last night and Alex Wood did his part to help beat Greinke and the D-Bags. It wasn’t pretty but our cleanup hitter banged out his 33rd Home Run and our 2nd cleanup hitter drive in another run. If 4th is cleanup, then 8th is second cleanup – right? It was good to see Joc get a solid double as well. If he can get it going, it will be a huge boost for the Boys in Blue!
These guys just keep on doing whatever is necessary to win and it was nice to see Greinke knocked out of the game. I can’t blame him for taking the money, but right about now, he is probably thinking he should have stayed a Dodger.
Rants & Raves
- Andre Ethier is set to start a rehab assignment on Saturday in RC, but allegedly won’t be added to the roster until September 1st.
- Clayton is chomping at the bite to get back and will throw a bullpen session on Friday. I suspect we will see him on a rehab assignment early next week.
- After some rest, Alex Verdugo returned to the lineup at OKC as a DH and went 2-4 with a HR and 3 RBI as A-Gon also got a hit and drove in 2 runs.
- The Dodgers are serious about calling Buehler up as a reliever and he pitched 2 scoreless innings last night. He is struggling with his control in his new role.
- We aren’t hearing anything about Brandon McCarthy. Is it possible he has been abducted by aliens?
- That’s all, Folks!
