Ricky Nolasco had an outstanding Dodger debut: 7.0 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 0 BB and 5 Ks...and two hits (including a double) as well as a run scored and an RBI.
Ian Kennedy was indeed the weak sauce we predicted: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 3 BB and 2 Ks. A throwing error from catcher Miguel Montero in the fourth, plus a fielding error by center fielder Adam Eaton, didn't help Kennedy any (both events led to Dodgers runs), but that's what you get when you plunk Hanley Ramirez in the first inning (Ramirez went 0-for-4 and ended his hitting streak at 19).
Carl Crawford got a hit (a bunt sacrifice-turned-single) and scored two runs.Yasiel Puig went 1-for-3 with 2 walks, one of which was sweet as he clearly wasn't biting on the bait Kennedy had left out there. Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with 3 RBI. Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a run scored; Skip Schumaker upped Ethier by going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI. Dodgers pull to 2.5 GB of the first-place Diamondbacks, and one game below .500.
