MLB Florida and Arizona Spring Training - SB Nation

Some notes about the game:

  • For the second game in a row the Dodgers didn't get an extra-base hit.
  • After pitching five scoreless innings, Randy Wolf got hammered and couldn't get out of the sixth inning, giving up four runs while only recording one out.
  • Furcal and Manny both had two hits. Andre Ethier also reached base twice, on a hit and a walk.
  • Although Casey Blake was expected back in the lineup after the birth of his third child, he was still absent today.
  • Some good showings by the relievers. Guillermo Mota struck out the only two batters he faced and Jonathan Broxton pitched a scoreless inning. Tanyon Sturtze also pitched but allowed two runs in his sole inning of work.
  • Five non-roster players could make the team, which hasn't happened in more than twenty years. The five are Doug Mientkiewicz, Juan Castro, Jeff Weaver, Tanyon Sturtze, and either Erick Threets or Brian Mazone. Joe Torre said Sturtze's chances are improving after being considered an afterthought earlier in the spring. The article offers us this gem, "Sturtze has been used primarily to escape jams... It's a job best suited for a fearless veteran and most of the pitchers the Dodgers have in camp are young". Great...
  • Tommorow the Dodgers will play the Padres at Camelback Ranch at 1:05 PM. Eric Stults will be getting the start in what may be his final chance to make a claim for the 5th starter spot. Among the things to look forward to, Josh Lindblom is scheduled to pitch, Manny will get to play left field once again, and Casey Blake is expected back in the lineup.
