Dodgers Week 19 In Review: Running Out Of Time

The Dodgers offense may look like it recovered, averaging four and a half runs per game, but in reality it was the same old post All-Star break Dodgers this week, who went 2-4 on the week, including their worst losses of the season, both literally (13-1 on Sunday) and figuratively (the debacle Thursday in Philadelphia). The Dodgers scored 24 runs in two of their games in Philadelphia, but also managed just three runs in the other four games of the week.

The bullpen was especially terrible, including blowing a seven-run lead with six outs to play, and Jonathan Broxton losing his job as closer. Five of the seven relievers this week allowed more than twice as many baserunners as innings pitched.

Dodger Batter of the Week:   Scott Podsednik had five multi-hit games and currently has a 12-game hitting streak overall, and my general rule is "hit .500 and you get batter of the week." Fellow outfielders Matt Kemp (.833 OPS), Andre Ethier (.832 OPS), and Jay Gibbons (.917 OPS) all merit honorable mention consideration.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week:  Four of the five Dodger starters had good weeks this week, but the award goes to Ted Lilly for not giving up a run in his six innings on Saturday. He has won all three starts as a Dodger.

Week 19 Record:  2-4
27 runs scored (4.50 per game)
36 runs allowed (6.00 per game)
.371 pythagorean winning percentage

Season Record:  60-58
516 runs scored (4.37 per game)
517 runs allowed (4.38 per game)
.499 pythagorean winning percentage (59-59)

  • Wednesday:  The Dodgers placed Rafael Furcal on the disabled list, retroactive to August 3, with a lower back strain, and purchased the contract of Juan Castro from Triple A Albuquerque.

Game Results:

Upcoming Week:  The Dodgers finish their series in Atlanta Monday, then fly home to face the Rockies and Reds, continuing their trend of playing teams ahead of them in the wild card standings.
