Yesterday’s game was a complete failure. The issue of hitting against lefties has not been fixed, if we use yesterday’s 4-0 shellacking as a measuring stick. Maeda did not perform to the standards as a #2 starting pitcher, as he gave up three runs in five innings. I suppose the only good news yesterday was that the bullpen gave up just one run in four innings.
Rich Hill will be taking the blister test – I mean, he will take the mound – tonight at 7:10 pm. You can watch the game in Los Angeles today on Channel 5 KTLA.
