Dodgers Week 18 In Review: A Winning Homestand

The Dodgers showed some signs of life this week, winning four of seven games at home against the Padres and Nationals. The offense found a pulse, averaging more than four runs per game, roughly double the production of the previous few weeks. The team got a few nice starts from its pitchers, and the bullpen performed as well. All eight relievers pitched between two and three innings for the week, and six of the eight allowed no runs out of the bullpen.

Since the All-Star break, the Dodgers are 8-6 at home, and 1-9 on the road.

Dodger Batter of the Week:   Andre Ethier turned up the power this week, with five extra-base hits, hitting .321/.387/.643. Honorable mention goes to Jamey Carroll, who ended the week on a high note with three hits and a walk, hitting .330/.440/.381 on the week.

Dodger Pitcher of the WeekVicente Padilla took a no-hitter into the seventh inning on Wednesday against the Padres, and ended up with a two-hit shutout, so this was an easy pick. Honorable mention goes to Ted Lilly, who won his first two starts as a Dodger.
