Zack Greinke had nothing bad to say about his own performance after allowing one run over six innings. The trouble came after Greinke exited, and six relievers allowed six runs in three innings. The Padres won, 7-3.
Yasmani Grandal made his Dodgers debut Tuesday. Coincidentally, it came against the same team that employed him the last three years, the San Diego Padres.
“It’s funny,” he said before the game. “I was going through a scouting report and my wife was like, ‘I barely even know these guys.’ I know maybe half the team. (Will) Middlebrooks, (Yonder) Alonso, (Alexi) Amarista, (Jedd) Gyorko. I know the infield. That’s a good way to put it.”
To hear A.J. Ellis tell it, Grandal might have been selling himself short.
