Adrian Gonzalez to hit cleanup in Dodgers debut tonight

Matt Kemp was nice enough to pass along the lineup card for tonight’s game between the Marlins and Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. The newly-acquired Adrian Gonzalez is indeed in the starting lineup and will bat cleanup against right-hander Josh Johnson.

And to think, just two months ago the Dodgers were using Juan Rivera in the cleanup spot on a semi-regular basis.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
