LA Dodgers experiment with postseason roles in win over San Diego Padres

first_imgSAN DIEGO >> Brett Anderson, a starting pitcher to this point in his existence as a Dodger, threw 2 1/3 innings out of the bullpen Thursday. Another converted starter, Alex Wood, pitched the eighth inning. Julio Urias, who moved to the bullpen when the month began, threw three innings as a starter.In the most topsy-turvy act of all, the Dodgers knocked around a left-handed pitcher en route to a 9-4 victory over the San Diego Padres. That gave them a winning record — 22-21 — in games started by left-handed pitchers this season.In the words of Dick Enberg, who broadcasts his final Padres game Sunday: Oh my.If the Dodgers intend to fully exorcise their left-handed demons before the regular season ends, an ornery 6-foot-5 inch obstacle still stands in their way: Madison Bumgarner, who starts the opener of a three-game series against the Giants on Friday. That, and sorting out any postseason roster roles still to be determined, will be the Dodgers’ final order of business as the regular season ends. Meanwhile, the possibility of beginning the National League Division Series at home slipped further from their grasp Friday. The Washington Nationals beat the Arizona Diamondbacks earlier in the day. They lead the Dodgers by two games in the race to host the NLDS with three games left in the season.The Dodgers convincingly avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the Padres, the fourth-place team in the National League West. Justin Turner had three of the Dodgers’ 15 hits, while Joc Pederson (2 for 5, two doubles), Carlos Ruiz (2 for 4) and Rob Segedin (2 for 3) added polish to their statistics.Whether he’s at home or on the road, pitching as a starter or reliever, Urias will be there when the playoffs begin.The 20-year-old left-hander allowed a double to Manuel Margot to begin the game, then didn’t allow another hit for three innings. Urias walked two batters and struck out five in what was likely the final appearance of his rookie season. He was removed after throwing 58 pitches. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img If his next opponent is the Nationals, Urias will finish his first major league season with a 5-2 record and a 3.39 earned-run average in 18 games (15 starts) with the Dodgers.Anderson (1-2) was credited with the victory, his first since Oct. 1, 2015. He didn’t allow a run in his first relief appearance since an October 2013 division series game for the Oakland A’s.With the Dodgers trailing 2-1 in the fourth inning, Charlie Culberson jump-started a four-run rally with a double against Padres starter Christian Friedrich (5-12). Turner tied the game 2-2 with an RBI double, then scored on a wild pitch by left-handed reliever Jose Torres.Andre Ethier appeared as a pinch hitter for the ninth time this month. His RBI single in the eighth inning gave him three hits, a walk and two RBIs coming off the bench.Andrew Toles, who will be on the NLDS roster, singled in his only plate appearance off the bench before the announced crowd of 35,804 at Petco Park.The start of the game was delayed while the Padres honored Enberg.last_img read more
