When you’re struggling, good news can be what you might call difficult to come by. At the moment for the Dodgers, it seems about as common as a red diamond.
Still, the Dodgers definitely received some before their Wednesday afternoon game against the Rockies.
The MRI exam on Matt Kemp’s knee showed only a bone bruise, and the CT scan on his jaw came back clean.
And when was the last time any Dodger went 2-for-2?
Kemp crashed full speed into the center-field wall at Coors Field on Tuesday. He dropped to the warning-track turf like he’d just received a right cross from Manny Pacquiao.
Kemp, however, ultimately shook off the collision and remained in the game. When the next hitter dropped a blooper in front of him, Kemp made a diving attempt at the ball. One batter later, however, he finally succumbed to his aching body parts and left the game.
