Segedin has Dodger-record 4 RBIs in ML debut vs Red Sox

The SportsNet LA broadcast continually showed Segedin's wife Robin, who is eight months pregnant.

Andrew Benintendi had a nice night at the dish in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers, going 3-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI.

Segedin was drafted in the third round of the 2010 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees. The second one had Josh Reddick bending backwards like a pretzel as it darted through the zone for another called third strike.

"I tried to get down the line as quick as I could", Blash said. Maybe the opportunity won't come here. Actually, a lot of things happened.

The Yankees traded him to the Dodgers in January for Ronald Torreyes and Tyler Olson.

"The first day, to help the team out ... that excitement of everything you've worked for since the day you started playing baseball ... it was pretty big", Segedin said. Combined with a better diet - no gluten, more avocadoes, he said - the difference in his strength and energy manifested itself on the field. The Dodgers selected the contract of INF/OF Rob Segedin from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Eflin, who never has faced Los Angeles, is 2-2 with a 5.19 ERA in six road outings during his rookie campaign.Urias is coming off his first relief appearance for the Dodgers, a three-inning stint at Colorado on Wednesday in which he gave up three runs and six hits. Sunday was his second.


With the bases loaded in the bottom of the fourth, Segedin blasted a fastball to deep center, clearing the bases.

Dayton, up from the minors on Thursday, followed with two scoreless innings, including a strikeout of Ortiz in the sixth.

"I've always trusted in my abilities", he said. "You don't want to give them any opportunities". "Watching Dodgers games is what I did growing up".

McCarthy was a late fill-in for left-hander Rich Hill, who still hasn't recovered from a finger blister.

McCarthy isn't quite right, either. McCarthy surrendered two runs on two hits with five walks, a hit a batter and two wild pitches. They were both visibly frustrated Sunday - especially Betts, who slammed his bat after one of his three strike-outs Sunday. "I made some really good pitches and then didn't make some good ones", Price said. When asked what those were, Roberts said: "I don't know". "He had a very good touch and feel for it". The hitting was inconsistent at best - especially given what the hitters have done for most of the season. They started the night hoping to complete a 6-5 trip with Price on the mound.

"That's the worst I've commanded the baseball in a game in a long time", Price said. In his three no-decisions, two were bad starts but Wright allowed only an unearned run in nine innings against the Chicago White Sox. Segedin's four RBIs in his big league debut are the most by a Dodger in franchise history and the second time a player has done it this season (Trevor Story, April 4).


Six relievers finished off the Red Sox in front of an announced crowd of 50,640.

Kenley Jansen struck out the side in the ninth to earn his 34th save.

Minnesota's Miguel Sano homered twice and drove in four runs as the Twins defeated Tampa Bay 6-3.

Leon hit a two-run homer in the fourth.

Segedin's day was the most improbable of them all. LHP Brett Anderson (herniated disk) will make a rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, with a 75-pitch/5-inning limit. He had a start postponed in mid-July, and then had to leave his final start for Oakland on July 17 after just five pitches.

Segedin said he's still taking classes toward his business degree at Tulane during the season and won't stop now. "I can say we probably caught a break with David (Ortiz) on the bench (Friday night) in a National League ballpark". "That's all I'm trying to do here". "I should be fine going forward".
