Game 150: Dodgers’ bench clears twice in comeback victory over San Francisco Giants.


The Dodgers’ bench emptied hurriedly twice on Monday: once to confront Madison Bumgarner after he yelled at Yasiel Puig, and again to celebrate Adrian Gonzalez‘s walk-off double in a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. The box score is here. The photo gallery is here.

Alex Wood‘s return to the Dodgers is on hold.

Ross Stripling and Brock Stewart are scheduled to start the next two games against the Arizona Diamondbacks. That will complete a streak of four straight rookie pitchers (Kenta Maeda today, Jose De Leon yesterday) who will have started a game with the Dodgers nursing a small lead in the National League West standings.

What’s more, the Dodgers are scheduled to use a different starting pitcher in all six games they will play this week.

Friday: Clayton KershawJose Fernandez
Saturday: Rich HillTom Koehler
Sunday: Maeda – Jake Esch

Watch: Vin Scully calls the end of Matt Moore’s no-hit bid.

Vin Scully didn’t get to call a no-hitter last night after all. That’s OK.

Hearing Scully call Corey Seager‘s single with two outs in the ninth inning Thursday, the Dodgers’ only hit against Matt Moore in a 4-0 loss, was enough of a reward for anyone who watched the game on SportsNet LA. See for yourself:
