Kenta Maeda struggled through the first inning once again giving up three runs but didn’t give
up any more. But lasted only 4 innings and gave way to Brandon Morrow who got the win. The Dodgers
remain hot and the bullpen stayed strong although they gave up their first run after 24 scoreless innings.
The starters really need to go a little farther into the games as the bullpen has been used a lot over the
last few games. This was Morrows first game with the Dodgers after being with San Diego last year.
