It was deja vu all over again for the Dodgers tonight. We beat the Giants, 4-2. We pick up a game on the Padres. We saw Matt Kemp benched to start the game (though he entered in the first when Manny Ramirez left the game after pulling a hamstring roudning second base; Ramirez is day-to-day (aren't we all)). We watched Pablo Sandoval get tagged out foolishly on the basepaths again to end a Giants rally. We watched Buster Posey enter the game for the Giants in the ninth as a pinch-hitter, and record an out in an ineffective at bat. Speaking of ineffective, we watched Jonathan Broxton sit in the bullpen unused, as our threadbare bullpen eked out a victory.
We can't expect John Ely to go seven innings each start (5 H, 1 ER, 5 Ks and 3 BB in the win), so we had better find some middle relievers, stat. I mean, we can't expect all of this to repeat itself again. Can we?
