Despite my best efforts to state my case in this morning’s paper that Ethier and Kemp have to be in the lineup together on a regular basis — a position that was supported by their dual performances last night — Ethier is sitting today in favor of Gonzo. Hillenbrand is playing 1B to get Loney a day off, with Martinez playing 3B.
Bills got through the first inning on just a handful of pitches, retiring all three batters and striking out two of them. Looks like he might be ON today, but it’s too early to really tell. Fabio Castro retired the Dodgers in order in the first but has walked two of the first three batters here in the second. Gonzo coming up. … Dodgers 0, Phillies 0, top 2
