Tough second inning for Rich Hill as he scuffled through a 36-pitch inning that included four walks and some words with umpire Rob Drake about the strike zone. He was lucky to survive with just the two runs Kolten Wong drove in. Between his issues with blisters and shaky command when he has been able to pitch, Hill is a long way from the starter who had a 2.12 ERA last season.

A key surprise for the Dodgers has been infielder Chris Taylor, acquired last summer from the Mariners. He began the season in Triple-A, but enters Wednesday's game hitting .326/.437/.570 in 30 games. He even makes his first MLB appearance in the outfield, filling in for Joc Pederson, who has the night off after Tuesday's collision with Yasiel Puig.

Nasty collision between Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig to end the top of the 10th, with Pederson taking an elbow to the head as Puig made the catch. Chris Turner hit for Pederson in the bottom of the inning, but Puig returns to right field for the 11th.

You can't fault Dave Roberts for leaving in Clayton Kershaw to close out a dominant 1-0 shutout, even if he did have Kenley Jansen in the bullpen. He was cruising with a two-hitter, but then made one mistake, a wild pitch that allowed a hustling Randal Grichuk to score all the way from second base to tie the game.

Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal launched a 3-2 pitch left over the center of the plate by Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn in the first inning on Tuesday night. Grandal homered twice on Opening Day, and this was only his third since then.
