Four consecutive games Rookie rotation checks in once again
Per the Dodger pregame notes:
According to Stats, LLC, prior to last week, the Dodgers hadn’t pitched four consecutive rookie starters since they were in Brooklyn, Sept. 8-10, 1952 (Ken Lehman, Billy Loes, Ray Moore, Johnny Rutherford).
In a span of two weeks, the Dodgers will have four rookies make consecutive starts. Starting on Aug 27th, Urias, Stewart, Maeda, and Stripling did it the first time. This week with Jose De Leon starting the honors from yesterday he will be followed by Maeda, Stripling, and Stewart.
So while Kershaw, McCarthy, Kazmir, Wood, and Ryu are twiddling their fingers, the boys of summer are expanding the Dodger lead over the Giants.
And of course, the four rookie run will end with Kershaw in Miami on Friday.
What a season.
