Dodgers Week 22 In Review: Getting Punked At Home

The Dodgers played the top two teams in the NL Wild Card race last week, and they lost both series. In fact, now both teams, the Phillies and Giants, are closer to their division leads thanks to playing the Dodgers. In each of the Dodgers' last three series, they have won the opening game and lost the next two games.

Stop me if you've heard this before, but the Dodgers got good starting pitching -- outside of one start by Carlos Monasterios -- but inconsistent offense and as a result dropped four of six games on the week.

The Dodgers actually only had five different people drive in runs during the week, and Scott Podsednik did not set any tables, finishing the week with one hit in 18 at-bats. Ending the week at one game over .500, the Dodgers' march toward the middle goes on.

Dodger Batter of the Week:   The much-mailgned men on the corners split the award, as James Loney and Casey Blake each had stellar weeks. Loney hit .313/.476/.563, while Blake hit .421/.500/.526 for the week. Honorable mention goes to Rod Barajas, who popped two home runs and caught 100% of the innings this week.

Dodger Pitcher of the WeekHiroki Kuroda was the only Dodger starter to pitch twice this week, and he was also the best, allowing just three runs total in his two games, in nearly 16 innings. He took a no-hitter into the eighth on Monday against the Phillies. Honorable mention goes to Chad Billingsley, who shut down the Giants on Friday night, allowing two unearned runs in his eight innings.
