Dodgers seeing success against southpaws

first_imgThe Dodgers now have a 6-8 record against left-handed starters this year and 36-25 against right-handers.Puig returnsPuig was able to pinch hit in the eighth inning and grounded out. It was his first plate appearance since Tuesday.“We’re still being a little careful” with Puig, Mattingly said. “We know he’s probably only going to get one at-bat. We’ll see what happens (Saturday).”Baez back, tooThe Dodgers activated reliever Pedro Baez from the 15-day disabled list and optioned left-hander Ian Thomas to Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to the game. Baez struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth inning.“It was a right-handed situation and we had some runs,” Mattingly said, “so it wasn’t like he can’t make any mistakes his first time back in the big leagues for a while, so it was a good situation for him.”Baez had not pitched since May 13 because of a strained right pectoral muscle.AlsoBrandon Beachy threw 60 pitches over four innings for Triple-A Oklahoma City. The right-hander allowed two hits, walked three and struck out two. It was his third minor-league rehab start as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery in April 2014. … Brandon League is expected to make rehab appearances with Oklahoma City on Saturday and Monday. … Paco Rodriguez’s minor-league rehab is over, Mattingly said, but the left-hander is expected to meet with team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache before he’s cleared to return to the Dodgers, possibly Monday in Arizona. “I think it’s a matter of seeing ‘em,” Mattingly said. “Sometimes you don’t see ‘em. The ones we saw (earlier in the season) were pretty good. (Madison) Bumgarner’s not too bad. And (Jorge) De La Rosa’s given us trouble historically. We saw Bumgarner three times and De La Rosa three times. So the ones we saw were pretty good.”Backup catcher A.J. Ellis got the start against Nicolino because Mattingly said he prefered Ellis to switch-hitting starter Yasmani Grandal against a lefty. Ellis went 0 for 2 against Nicolino.Yasiel Puig, who was still dealing with a broken callus on his left palm, and left-handed hitter Andre Ethier both sat in favor of Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero.Van Slyke hit a two-run home run against Nicolino in the second inning. Another right-handed hitter, Howie Kendrick, had a single and a lineout in his two plate appearances against Nicolino and finished with four hits. Guerrero finished 2 for 4.“We have some really professional hitters, especially against lefties,” Ellis said. “Scott Van Slyke is as good as anybody I’ve ever played with, as far as facing left-handed pitchers. We missed him for a while when he was banged up. Alex Guerrero is dangerous against batting against anybody, but it seems he has big hits against lefties as well.” MIAMI >> Even during the halcyon days of April, when it seemed anything the Dodgers hit left the yard, their lineup had a fatal flaw. It couldn’t hit left-handed pitching. The Dodgers finished April with a .185 average against lefties — bad for a bad team, let alone one expected to contend for a World Series. They’ve gotten better since, batting .257 against southpaws in May and .241 so far in June.Friday they did something they haven’t done all season by beating left-handed starters on consecutive days. One was a hard-throwing veteran (Jon Lester); the other a younger finesse pitcher (Justin Nicolino).Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted that this provided some satisfaction.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
