Tomko is fifth starter … or maybe fourth

Grady just named Brett Tomko the team’s fifth starter, with Mark Hendrickson going to the bullpen as a multi-innings guy. That puts Tomko in line to start on April 10 against Colorado. But Grady left open the possibility Tomko will start in place of Brad Penny on April 7 at San Francisco if Penny’s shoulder problems continue to be a problem, something Grady said he doesn’t anticipate. … Dodgers scored two in the bottom of the ninth on a single by Larry Bigbie that drove in Tony Abreu from second with the tying run. James Loney then scored all the way from first when Cleveland right fielder Casey Blake booted Bigbie’s ball. That gave the Dodgers a walkoff 4-3 win over the Indians. Loney went 3 for 4 with a double, raising his average to .444 and his on-base percentage to .500. And somehow, it is beginning to look like he won’t make the club. More on all of this in tomorrow’s paper. Dodgers improve to 16-11.
