And then they called it a spring, mercifully, thankfully.
That was a slow, painful spring training finale played Wednesday afternoon. Unless you were the Angels, who powered four home runs on the way to an easy 8-3 victory at Dodger Stadium.
The Dodgers played only a couple of their regulars, and then only for a few innings, before mostly turning it over to a bunch of guys about to head for minor league parks across the country.
Unfortunately, one of those figures to be back before long, and he gave up three of the homers.
Nathan Eovaldi is the designated starting pitcher in waiting, in a line of one, expected to join the Dodgers’ rotation should injury befall any of the starting five. And three of them are at least 33 years old.
