Dodgers send Elbert back to Triple-A

DENVER -- The Dodgers returned left-handed reliever Scott Elbert to Triple-A Albuquerque after Sunday's game and recalled right-handed reliever Travis Schlichting.

Elbert was called up to counter Colorado's left-handed hitters, but he walked three of them in his only appearance Saturday night.

Schlichting, who had a brief callup last year, is 2-0 with a 4.05 ERA in 31 1/3 innings at Albuquerque.
