The Worst Game Of The Year

This game makes me too angry to write a proper recap.  The key points:

  • Hiroki Kuroda took a line drive off the head and had to leave in the sixth inning.  Early word is that he never lost consciousness, so at least there is some good news
  • The Dodgers couldn't score more than three runs off Jason Schmidt Doug Davis, who struggled throwing strikes for six innings, yet the Dodgers could never deal him a crushing blow to get him out of the game earlier.
  • Jonathan Broxton allowed two long home runs, to Mark Reynolds and Miguel Montero, to blow his fifth save of the season, and his third in his last seven appearances
  • The Dodgers lost in the 10th inning, one batter after Ramon Troncoso pulled the "lose control right after intentionally walking a guy" routine.

Randy Wolf faces Yusmeiro Petit in a salvage game tomorrow afternoon.  Hopefully we'll have some good news about Kuroda by then.

WP -Chad Qualls (2-1):  1 IP, 1 walk, 1 strikeout

LP - Ramon Troncoso (4-2):  0.1 IP, 2 hits, 1 run, 2 walks

Box Score

UPDATE:  Ken Gurnick of MLB.com tells us the CT scan came back negative, so that is wonderful news:

Trainer Stan Conte said Kuroda never lost consciousness and a CT scan was negative, revealing no fractures or bleeding. Kuroda will be kept overnight at a local hospital for observation with a likely concussion, although doctors were willing to release him, Conte said.
