Dodgers Week 11 In Review

Previous Weekly Recaps: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

The Dodgers played two series last week, and they won two series, going 4-2 for the week.  They have not lost a series in a month, since the Angels visited Dodger Stadium.  The Dodgers were able to return the favor this weekend, winning two of three in Anaheim.  This was the sixth week, of 11, that the Dodgers have had a record of 4-2 or better.

Dodger Batter of the Week:  Matt Kemp had another stellar week, hitting .429, but this award goes to the no-longer-homerless Russell Martin.  Martin hit his first home run of the season on Saturday in Anaheim, and hit a solid .294/.478/.471 for the week.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week:  After his shortest outing of the season, June 10 against the Padres, Clayton Kershaw rebounded very nicely.  In two starts last week, Kershaw pitched 12.2 innings and didn't give up a run, while striking out 13 batters.  I told you there was no need to worry!  Honorable mention goes to Ronald Belisario, who provided 5.1 of scoreless relief in his four appearances in close games.

Week 11 Record:  4-2
27 runs scored (4.50 per game)
23 runs allowed (3.83 per game)
.579 pythagorean winning percentage

Overall Seasonal Record:  46-24 (.657)
348 runs scored (4.97 per game)
263 runs allowed (3.75 per game)
.636 pythagorean winning percentage

Welcome Aboard:  31-year old outfielder Mitch Jones, with 221 home runs in his ten minor league seasons, made his long-awaited major league debut on Tuesday against Oakland, and even got a heartwarming standing ovation after he struck out.

Manny Suspension Countdown:  41 games down, 9 games to go; 11 days until July 3 at Petco Park.

Manny will begin his rehabilitation assignment in Albuquerque on Tuesday, but anything beyond that is unknown.  It is likely Ramirez will play a few games with Albuquerque, then come back to Southern California for three to four games with the Inland Empire 66ers.

Quote of the Week:

"He's got the upper hand on me the past 26 years.  We're going to laugh about it. It was fun. Hopefully, we don't have to go through it again."

-Jered Weaver of the Angels, on losing to his Dodger brother Jeff

Upcoming Week:  The Dodgers have an off day Monday, then head to Chicago to finish their road trip by facing the White Sox for three games.  The Dodgers then return home to face the Mariners for three games to end the interleague portion of their 2009 schedule.
