With Pablo Sandoval on the disabled list, Mark DeRosa is finally getting a chance to contribute in the everyday lineup. After wrist issues limited him to only 26 games last season -- and placed him on the DL earlier this year -- DeRosa is glad to be back, but would be happier if he was producing like he feels he's capable. DeRosa is hitless in his last 22 at-bats. "I'm late, I'm rolling over sliders, all the pretty obvious signs of being in a little funk," DeRosa said. Bochy -- always one to stick with his veterans -- agrees but hopes the third baseman can quickly regain his stroke. "It's a case of him getting his timing," Bochy said. "He needs to get it soon, because we're sputtering offensively." Second baseman Freddy Sanchez missed Tuesday's game because of swelling in his left knee that began bothering him on Monday. Dodgers: Bullpen, Jansen throwing bullets
Los Angeles reliever Kenley Jansen owns an 8 2/3-inning scoreless streak after another spotless appearance Tuesday night.
In that span, he has held hitters to a .071 average (2-for-28) while striking out 16. The Dodgers bullpen, as a unit, has thrown 8 1/3 straight scoreless innings.Worth noting
Andre Ethier (22-for-44) and James Loney (14-for-39 with 10 RBIs) have had great success against Cain, but Jay Gibbons is only current Dodgers player in 193 combined at-bats to homer off the right-hander. San Francisco closer Brian Wilson has thrown 10 consecutive scoreless innings and is 12-for-12 in save opportunities.
