Dodgers Offense Coming Alive

In the last four games the Dodgers have busted out the offense, a stark contrast to the first part of the season. In fact, the Dodgers have scored the same amount of runs (31) in their last four games as they had in the previous 10 games. A comparison:

Dates G PA R HR BB BA/OBP/SLG OPS
Apr 10-19    
10 362 31 5 21 .243/.294/.332 .627
Apr 20-23 4 176 31 9 20 .307/.389/.529 .918

Yesterday's eight-run outburst pushed the Dodgers to an average of 4.0 runs per game on the season, the first time they have reached that mark all season.

Hiroki Kuroda hopes to be the beneficiary of that Dodger offense today as he takes on the Cubs. Kuroda hasn't faced the Cubs since 2008. Carlos Zambrano hasn't faced the Dodgers since 2008. Today, they duel.

Happy Easter everybody.
