Dodgers' Stripling struggles in start vs. Diamondbacks

Ross Stripling took the loss on Monday against the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs over four innings. Stripling gave up eight hits in the loss -- two of them homers -- and he also walked one while striking out two. He's been excellent in relief, but Stripling didn't show near the same level of effectiveness in this one, and it supports those who believe that his stuff plays better out of the bullpen. He's likely heading back to the bullpen, although the Dodgers have yet to announce a start for their game on Saturday against the Padres.

Padres' Lauer strikes out seven in second MLB start

Eric Lauer gave up three runs over five innings while striking out seven in a no-decision against the Giants on Monday. Lauer gave up three runs in the first inning, but settled down nicely in the second start of his MLB career. The biggest issue so far for the southpaw has been command, as he's walked six hitters in his eight innings. If he can throw more strikes, the results should improve dramatically. His next start comes on Sunday when Lauer and the Padres face the Dodgers.
