Cueto and Leake having their problems on long rest tonight.

Scully took a while but every HR and major hit for the Dodgers so far tonight was on an 0-1, 0-2 or 1-2 count...

One of those flukish nights.

Not complaining, I wish he would have managed this way in Game 2 against the Cards before Cueto fell apart in the 6th.

Maybe Dusty is sending his team a message that they never are out of a game.

Or maybe he really does have dinner reservations.

So, how huge are those two 2-out runs that Leake gave up, both on 0-2 pitches now? Ugh.

I guess the 5 runs Cueto gave up are looming pretty big too. :(

oregonred

Really it is insane to run Gomes out there against a righty with a hot Nix and Jimmy Ballgame as way better options. Gomes did bloop a single in the 6th

To be fair to Smith, tonight he's allowed two routine grounders, just hit to vacant infield spots. I still think Smith will be a good reliever.
