Dana Eveland is by all means an awful pitcher. Aside from a solid 2008 season, he’s pretty much been a AAAA guy over the course of his career. He entered tonight with more 7+ run starts (7) than scoreless starts (5). But for seven innings, he held the Giants scoreless, allowing just three hits and two walks.
At this point in the season, the Giants don’t have anything on the line; they’re not making the playoffs. Even so, it’s always tough to stomach a loss to the Dodgers, especially one in which a terrible pitcher does this to them.
A couple positives to take from this game:
1) Vogelsong went eight innings for the first time in three months, and only walked one.
2) Brandon Belt started.
