Justin Turner’s home run makes a winner out of Rich Hill in his Dodgers debut

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> Amazon Prime offers same-day delivery. The Dodgers had to be more patient.Twenty-three days after they traded three well-regarded prospects to the Oakland A’s for outfielder Josh Reddick and someone suited to fill the void at the front of their starting rotation, Rich Hill finally made his debut for the Dodgers.There was no buyer’s remorse. Hill looked like the top-tier starter the Dodgers thought they were getting – and have sorely lacked since Clayton Kershaw went to the DL. He pitched six scoreless innings Wednesday night as the Dodgers won, 1-0.“I’m not surprised. That’s Rich,” Reddick said. “I’ve seen it all year. “It just shows what a competitor he is. He hasn’t pitched in over a month and he goes out there and shuts down a lineup like that.”Justin Turner provided the night’s only offense, ruining Giants starter Johnny Cueto’s own gem with a solo home run in the fourth inning. The home run was the Dodgers’ first hit of the game and one of only five they managed in the game.With back-to-back wins over Madison Bumgarner and Cueto, the Dodgers have continued the Giants’ second-half freefall. They are 11-25 since the All-Star break (the worst record in baseball over that time) ceding 9½ games to the Dodgers since the break. The Dodgers have gone from 6 ½ games down to a season-high three games up, assuring themselves of a victory in the first of three series between the two rivals over the final seven weeks of the season.“We’re not panicking, I don’t think,” Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford said. “Yeah, we haven’t been playing well but hopefully we’ll turn it around.“I think a clubhouse full of guys that have been through tough times before, that have pulled out and been a World Series-winning team – we’ve been through tough stretches before, we wound up winning the World Series at the end of the year.”center_img Hill came just as advertised in the catalog. He kept the Giants off balance with a variety pack of off-speed pitches – one of which floated up toward the plate at 52 mph.The Giants had five hits in Hill’s six innings. All were singles and only one baserunner reached second base. That came in the first inning when Buster Posey’s two-out single was followed by Hunter Pence just beating out an infield single on a ground ball to third.Hill didn’t walk a batter and 63 of his 81 pitches were strikes. It was only the ninth “quality start” (six innings or more, three runs or fewer) by a Dodgers pitcher in 35 games since the All-Star break.“He knew exactly what he wanted to do,” Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal said. “He got a lot of pop ups, a lot of soft grounders. He got ahead of hitters and knew how to put them away.”Hill had not pitched since July 17 when a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand ripped open five pitches into a start for the Oakland A’s. Before that he had made only two starts since the end of May due to a groin injury and the blister problem.“There’s nothing I can control about that,” Hill said of his delayed debut. “The only thing I can control is to go out there and continue to pitch with conviction and passion and intensity. In conjunction with staying in the moment, anything outside of that is really irrelevant.”Roberts gladly accepted the gift of six innings from a starting pitcher – something he has gotten just 16 times in the past 49 games (since Clayton Kershaw’s last start on June 26) – and manipulated his bullpen to make the one-run lead stand up over the final three innings.Pedro Baez and Adam Liberatore tag-teamed the seventh inning. But Joe Blanton found himself with runners on the corners and two outs in the eighth with the left-handed Crawford coming up. Rookie left-hander Grant Dayton was warming up in the bullpen as Roberts went out to the mound.“I wanted to go out there and look in his eyes and check on him a little bit, see how he felt,” Roberts said. “I know he used a lot of energy with those first four hitters. But as I went out there I just knew he had to stay in there. It’s the confidence I have in Joe Blanton.”Roberts might have regretted that decision for a split second as Crawford sent Reddick back to the wall in right field to haul in his drive.“I felt much better after it went in Reddick’s glove,” Roberts said. “Regardless of the outcome, he got ahead two strikes. I still liked that matchup.”Kenley Jansen retired the side in order in the ninth for his 37th save of the season.“This group has been in this position before. They’re battle-tested,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “Every day we think, ‘Hey, it’s our day to come out of this.’ They’re going out there, going hard early. We put pressure on them. They got the big hit and we didn’t.”last_img read more
