Dodgers Week 14 In Review: A Winning Homestand

Vicente Padilla has a 5.4-to-one strikeout-to-walk ratio this season.

The Dodgers had a winning homestand in their final week before the All-Star break, winning four of seven games against the Marlins and Cubs. The offense had its moments, but the pitching did the job this week, as pretty much everyone outside of John Ely and George Sherrill were outstanding.

The Dodgers head into the All-Star break just two games out of first place in the National League West.

Dodger Batter of the Week:   Rafael Furcal was the man again, leading the club in doubles, home runs, runs scored, slugging percentage, and OPS. His month-long hot streak rightfully earned him a spot as a reserve on the National League All-Star team. Honorable mention goes to James Loney, who hit .346/.414/.538 for the week with seven RBI, and his 63 runs batted in are the most by a Dodger before the break since Shawn Green had 68 in 2002.

Dodger Pitcher of the WeekEvery non-Ely starter pitched seven innings or more at least once, and Vicente Padilla takes this week's award by allowing just two runs total in his two starts. For the week, Padilla struck out 15 with only one walk. Clayton Kershaw was a close second place with his 12 strikeouts and no walks in his "should have been a complete game" eight-inning dominance on Thursday.

Week 14 Record:  4-3
34 runs scored (4.86 per game)
29 runs allowed (4.14 per game)
.572 pythagorean winning percentage

Season Record:  49-39
