Bruce day-to-day

X-Rays taken on Jay Bruce’s sore right hand were negative. Bruce was diagnosed with a moderate bruise and is listed as day-to-day. When asked if Bruce could play on Sunday, manager Dusty Baker said “probably not.”

Some quotes after the 7-0 loss to Houston:

Dusty Baker on Wandy Rodriguez, who threw seven scoreless and struck out 10:

“That’s as good of a curveball as I’ve seen him throw. He could throw it any count at any time. He didn’t hang any. He had a very good miles-per-hour differential between his fastball and his curveball. It was a 15-20 mph difference. Early in the year like that, guys like him give you the blues because you’re not really ready for that adjustment of speed. Not taking anything away from him, he threw a great game.”

Aaron Harang, who vented some frustration in the dugout — knocking over a cooler among other things:

“It’s frustrating when you pitch your heart out all night and don’t get any luck. It’s been a tough year and a half. It’s going to grind on you eventually. Tonight, I got over that boiling point and needed to get some frustration out.”
