400 club, Maeda can’t carry Dodgers to victory
By Cary Osborne
We’re gonna stay positive here, despite the Dodgers’ 3-0 loss to the Miami Marlins on Sunday.
Kenta Maeda had one rough inning — a two-run fourth. Otherwise, he was outstanding. Maeda allowed two earned runs over six innings. He has pitched at least six innings in back-to-back starts for the first time since June 3 and 8.
The Dodgers’ four hits came from their hottest hitters — Josh Reddick, Corey Seager, Adrian González and Joc Pederson.
Reddick is 14 for his last 32 (.438).
Gonzalez extended his hitting streak to 10 games, a stretch in which he has had one hit in all 10 games.
Seager is 13 for his last 30 (.433).
Pederson is 10 for his last 24 (.417).
Andre Ethier started a regular season game for the first time since October 4.
I get it. They didn’t win.
But as of this moment, the Dodgers lead the Giants by 3 1/2 games.
