Post-Game 2 Thread: Kazmir Model

Cashmere model.


Scott Kazmir had a model Dodgers debut today, one-hitting the Padres through six innings, and the Dodgers jumped to another shutout victory in San Diego. The Dodgers' offense came from Yasiel Puig, who took advantage of a hopelessly lost Jon Jay in center field to leg out a 2-RBI triple in the fourth. Puig was knocked in by Carl Crawford who found a hole on the left with a drawn-in infield ("drawn-in infield" always seems pretty sketchy, if you ask me). But it was Kazmir who was most impressive; if we can fill the big shoes of Zack Greinke with a decent #2, that would be a nice pick-me-up.

Pedro Baez, Chris Hatcher, and Kenley Jansen each had a scoreless frame with two Ks; add those six Ks to Kazmir's five Ks, and the Dodgers have 11 Ks total on the day. (Joc Pederson, .250 on the season, also had 2Ks on his own, but that's another story).

The Dodgers are the only team in the majors to have not allowed a run this season.
