Dodgers Week 6 In Review: Feast On The East

After playing 28 of their first 33 games against the "weak" NL West, the Dodgers branched out and headed east to face the Phillies and Marlins in Week 6.  Well, the Dodgers answered their critics with a 4-2 record, and widened their lead again in the NL West

Dodger Batter of the Week:  I'm tempted to give this award to the Dodger bench, who hit a collective .375/.500/.750 during the week, or to Casey Blake and his .368/.364/.789 line, but this week's award has to go to Juan Pierre, who has been white hot for some time and hit .407/.467/.630.  He's hitting .419/.476/.554 on the season.  It may not be Mannywood, but Juantanamera is doing just fine.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week:  Chad Billingsley won his showdown (well, the team did) with Cole Hamels, and Randy Wolf pitched yet another solid game, but this week's award goes to Clayton Kershaw, who took a no-hitter into the eighth inning on Sunday.  He rebounded from a string of bad road outings with a near masterpiece.

Week 6 Record:  4-2
38 runs scored (6.33 per game)
25 runs allowed (4.17 per game)
.698 pythagorean winning percentage

Overall Seasonal Record:  26-13
222 runs scored (5.69 per game)
152 runs allowed (3.90 per game)
.681 pythagorean winning percentage

The Dodgers have the best record in baseball, the best run differential in baseball, and lead the majors in fewest runs allowed.  They have the most runs scored in the National League, and only Toronto has scored more (5.78 per game).

Manny Suspension Countdown:  10 games down, 40 games to go; 46 days until July 3 at Petco Park

Upcoming Week:  The Dodgers return home to the paradise of Dodger Stadium, with three against the Mets, followed by an off day Thursday, then the start of interleague play with the Angels over the weekend.
