PHILADELPHIA >> Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson said he didn’t know who Larry Andersen is until a reporter told him Thursday.Andersen, a retired pitcher and the Philadelphia Phillies’ radio color commentator, seems to believe he has a pretty good knowledge of Pederson.Andersen ripped Pederson for being “selfish” during the fourth inning of the Phillies’ broadcast of Wednesday’s game against the Dodgers.“To me it’s just a young, selfish, very selfish player when you come out there, ‘I’m just trying to hit home runs, all I want to do is hit home runs’,” Andersen said. “What about — obviously there’s two outs, it’s not the same — what about if it’s first and third, infield back, all you gotta do is hit a ball on the ground and you’re going to go up there, try to hit home runs?” If Pederson is trying to hit home runs, he’s failing miserably. After belting 20 home runs in his first 77 games this season, Pederson only has one home run in his last 28 games. That could be a by-product of Pederson’s attempt to shorten his swing path.Thursday, Pederson snapped an 0-for-23 streak with a single in the seventh inning. He collected six walks, a single and struck out twice in the three-game series.More CrawfordDodgers manager Don Mattingly said he’ll try to play Carl Crawford “at least once a series,” while giving either right fielder Yasiel Puig or left fielder Andre Ethier a day off.Puig wasn’t in the starting lineup for Thursday’s series finale against the Phillies, while Ethier moved to right field and Crawford started in left. Crawford went 1 for 4 with a two-run single in the first inning.“He’s really in Andre’s boat from last year, where Carl got hot and took off,” Mattingly said. “This year Andre’s been that guy who’s been our most consistent offensive outfielder. Carl, it’s not his fault he got hurt, but he did. Andre got an opportunity and took off.”Crawford missed 75 games earlier this season with a strained oblique muscle. His body might have less wear and tear at this point in the season than Puig or Ethier, but his timing at the plate is admittedly lacking.For someone who got used to starting during his first 13 years in the league, that’s an inevitable consequence of decreased playing time. Crawford has started four of the Dodgers’ 14 games since he returned from the disabled list.“It is easier said than done, but you’ve gotta do it,” he said. “It’s good that you want to be out there, and I think they like that. At the same time you’ve got to just play your part. We all have to do that right now. The team is playing extremely well right now. The last thing you want to do is become a problem. That’s just the situation.”AlsoDodgers reliever Joel Peralta left Thursday’s game after facing only three batters when Odubel Herrera spiked the top of his left foot while the pitcher was covering first base. Peralta said he was not seriously hurt on the play and Mattingly said he planned to pull Peralta after Herrera’s single anyway. … Triple-A pitcher Carlos Frias was scheduled to undergo further tests on his back one day after the injury limited his last start to only 10 pitches. … The scheduled starters for the next three games against the Pirates: Clayton Kershaw will face right-hander Gerrit Cole on Friday, Mat Latos will face left-hander Francisco Liriano on Saturday, and Alex Wood will face right-hander Charlie Morton on Sunday. … The games Friday and Sunday night will be nationally telecast on ESPN. Friday’s game will be blacked out in SportsNet LA markets, while Sunday’s game will not. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Earlier, when Pederson batted in the first inning, Andersen repeated the quote on the air.“It looks like this guy’s just got one thing on his mind, and that’s either walking or hitting a home run,” Andersen said. “There’s no ‘try and get a base hit here.’ He came out and said it, ‘I’m trying to hit home runs.’ It’s not the smartest thing to come out and say.”One problem with this quote: Pederson claims he never said it.“I think I said the exact opposite” Wednesday, he said.Pederson and a Dodgers spokesperson both said the rookie wasn’t approached for an interview by anyone on the Phillies’ broadcast team during the three-game series.
