|Charlie Haeger became the 13th Dodgers pitcher in the last 11 seasons to strike out 12 batters in a game.|
“Whatever the reason, he walked the first two batters. Cantu then took him deep. "Cantu hit a good pitch, a good knuckleball,'' Haeger said. "He is just a good hitter. I just lost my rhythm there to those first two batters. After the home run, I found it again.'' Haeger went six innings, just the second Dodgers starter to go that deep into a game this season. He wound up with no decision.
We just had some tough breaks and made some big mistakes. We made some big mistakes in key situations and didn't drive in runs at the right time. We made errors and did things we can't be doing.” -- Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp
