Bye bye Will Venable. He was only a Dodger for half a minute. The Dodgers DFA’d him yesterday to bring Nick Tepesch up from Oklahoma City to pitch. After allowing 5 runs, Tepesch was replaced by the bullpen in the 3rd inning. Might as well have just used the bullpen without bringing someone up. Or else why not just let Kenta Maeda pitch on regular rest.
The Dodgers are now a season high 7 games out of first place. They can’t afford to lose even one game. The Dodgers battled hard but still came up behind 6-8 in the first game with the Pirates.
Kenta Maeda will pitch on Saturday. I hope the Dodgers keep providing run support. Yasiel hit his first homerun since coming back from DL. Corey Seager had 4 hits.
Thanks for stopping by. GO DODGERS!!!
