Before LA began their three-game series in Atlanta, they placed Andrew Heaney, who was scheduled to start today, on the injured list with the a shoulder injury. Then, in the eighth inning, reliever Daniel Hudson suffered a knee injury that immediately took him out of the game.

“It’s potentially a huge loss for us. It’s a tough one, to lose any player, but Huddy is a guy we count on in a lot of different ways – on the field, one of the leaders in the clubhouse. …Obviously, with Blake [Treinen] down, we’ve relied heavily on him in leverage spots so to not have him with us, there’s an exponential effect to our ball club.”

The 35-year-old owned a 2.22 ERA this season.
