Teddy’s 3.1 innings pitched is his shortest outing since joining the Dodgers.

After winning his first five starts with the L.A., Lilly has dropped his last three, but isn’t getting much run support, either.

The Cubs and Dodgers have combined to provide Lilly with just 2.89 runs per game, the lowest in the Majors. L.A. scored two runs Thursday night, one with Lilly in the game, during its 10-2 loss against San Fran.

Through his nine starts with L.A., Lilly is (5-3) and (8-11) overall this season. Two more wins in his final three starts, however, gives Lilly eight straight seasons of ten or more victories.
