2011 Dodgers Season In Thirds

The Dodgers' rainout in Washington D.C. on September 8 meant they played fewer than 162 games for the first time in a non-strike year since 1990. It also meant the final "third" of the season contained 53 instead of 54 games. Here is a look at the Dodgers in 2011 with the season broken down in thirds:

Year W-L Runs For Runs Allowed BA/OBP/SLG ERA
1st 54 Games 
24-30 187 (3.46/gm) 226 (4.19/gm) .248/.312/.360 3.99
2nd 54 Games
25-29 212 (3.93/gm) 211 (3.91/gm) .255/.319/.368 3.71
Final 53 Games
33-20 245 (4.62/gm) 175 (3.30/gm) .255/.334/.398 2.91

The Dodgers not only got great pitching in the season's final 53 games, but also got good production out of their catchers and from James Loney, something that was missing in the first 108 games of the season. Loney led the club in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, OPS, and doubles over the final third of the year. Loney drove in 34 runs in the first 108 games of the year, then drove in 31 in the final 53 contests.

Here are the numbers for each individual player in 2011, broken down in thirds:

Much like 2010, Rod Barajas ended his 2011 season in style. He and A.J. Ellis gave the Dodgers very good offensive production over the final third of the year.

Juan Rivera started seven of the final 53 games at first base, but I counted all of his stats as an outfielder, as he started 38 games there in the final third of the season.

Kemp was just amazing all year. Rivera and Jerry Sands helped make up for Andre Ethier, who was both injured and ineffective in the final third of the year.

Now, onto the pitching.

Clayton Kershaw was dominant in each of the first two thirds of the year, but his finishing run was off the charts. Ted Lilly had quite a turnaround to his season. So did Chad Billingsley, but not the good kind of turnaround.

The Dodger bullpen was shaky early in the season, but was a strength of the team in each of the final two thirds of the year. Those Kenley Jansen numbers are fun to look at.
