Worth noting

• Luis Cruz, who exited Saturday's game before the eighth inning with a headache, was in the lineup for Sunday afternoon's game. While swinging off a tee before Saturday's game, Cruz was hit by the ball on the left side of his face right above his jaw, underneath his ear.

He batted sixth against Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa on Sunday to protect Hanley Ramirez in the lineup with Andre Ethier sliding down to seventh because of struggles against lefties.
