Former Los Angeles Dodger Skip Schumaker started two of the four games and made a pinch-hit appearance in the Cincinnati Reds’ four-game series against the Dodgers this week.
Schumaker doubled and scored two runs in the final game of the series. He also critiqued his former team, telling Bill Shaikin of the LA Times that though the Dodgers’ lineup is good, it is better when certain guys decide to play. Schumaker played one season with the Dodgers in 2013 before signing with the Reds.
The Dodgers won the first two games of the series before dropping the final two games against the Reds. Los Angeles finishes the road trip with 4-3 record and currently 8.5 games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West Standings. The Dodgers open up a six-game homestand starting Friday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
