SAN DIEGO — Remember spring training?

Neither do the Dodgers, and neither does Scott Kazmir. The doom and gloom of an injury-ravaged camp has been replaced by, apparently, the best pitching staff on the planet. It’s really too small a sample size to celebrate anything more than a couple wins, including Tuesday’s 3-0 win over the Padres, but Kazmir’s redemption following a stinker of a spring made for a nice story tonight. The box score is here.

Pitcher Louis Coleman had to scrap his birthday tradition this year, and he was totally OK with that.
