Dodgers Week 7 In Review: No Offense, No Problem

Despite having their offensive struggles during the week, the Dodgers still ended up winning four of six.  By sweeping the Mets and taking a game against the Angels, the Dodgers ended the week with a bigger lead in the division (7½ games) than when they started (6 games).

Dodger Batter of the WeekCasey Blake continued his torrid hitting, putting up a .500/.571/.778 after starting the week with a tight hamstring.  Blake is hitting .373/.436/.672 in May, with 15 runs and 13 RBI in 20 games.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week:  The Dodger bullpen had a strong week collectively, but the standout was Jonathan Broxton, who pitched five scoreless innings.  He pitched in all three games in the Mets series, then pitched two scoreless innings Saturday night to get his fifth victory of the year.  He is the fastest Dodger reliever to reach five wins since Charlie Hough in 1976.
