After 62 games, Matt Kemp is rested for the first time in 2010. "I'm giving Matt Kemp a day off, which is something he hasn't had," Joe Torre told reporters today. "He's fighting himself a little bit, and I noticed yesterday that he was just trying to put the ball in play. I wanted to give him a mind day off, it's not a physical thing."

Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com has the recap of Saturday's game.

Torre on Vicente Padilla: "We'll talk Tuesday when we see him in Cincinnati, he'll throw his bullpen on Wednesday. I need him to be honest, I don't want him to be almost there, I want him all the way back."

Steven Strasburg is at it again: eight strikeouts in five innings so far today. Though he has walked three, he has allowed only one hit, a home run.
