Orioles 8, Dodgers 0, and the news only gets worse from there

It doesn’t appear Rafael Furcal (moderate left ankle spring) or Jason Repko (high left hamstring strain) will be ready for opening day, although trainer Stan Conte stopped short of saying that when it came to Furcal. “It will be longer than a week,” Conte said. “Right now, this is 100-percent medical. With respect to figuring out when he’ll be able to play, that is kind of the least of our concerns at this point.” The Dodgers break camp in a week. Do the math, and it doesn’t look good for Furcal leading off at Milwaukee on April 2. As for Repko, Conte said, “It will probably be measured in weeks.” … Tomko got lit up for six earned runs on six hits over four innings. The Dodgers got four hits, including a double each by Wilson Valdez and Larry Bigbie, the two men most likely to benefit from the injuries to Furcal and Repko. Valdez is hitting .358, Bigbie .364. The Dodgers, who fell to 13-11, have been outscored 41-3 in their past five games, all losses.
