Dodgers @ Braves May 17, 2013: Ryu vs Maholm

May 17, 2013 at 6:20 pm | Posted in Game Threads | Leave a comment

I haven’t missed a game thread yet. Despite the best efforts of the day job, today won’t be that day, but we are going to have to keep this brief.

Yes, that is Luis Cruz in the lineup for the first time since May 5, which was nearly two weeks ago. Can we hope and pray that it will be the last time? Mark Ellis is scheduled to play four innings for Chattanooga tonight (weather permitting), and I cannot imagine that Cruz still exists for any other reason than that Ellis, Jerry Hairston, & Hanley Ramirez are all injured. Hairston reportedly is now battling a knee injury in addition to his other concerns, but Ellis could be back as soon as later this road trip, so… absolutely expect Cruz to go 4-4 with two dingers tonight, just to screw with us. No question.
