Dodgers Week 10 In Review: The Bison Breaks Out

Matt Kemp was locked in at the plate this week, especially in Cincinnati, where he reached base 12 times in 16 plate appearances.

Matt Kemp and the Dodgers put together their second-best offensive week of the season (narrowly behind Week 4), and won two series against the Rockies and Reds. Their run differential of +14 was their best week of the season. However, the rest of the division didn't cooperate, as the Dodgers ended their week just as they started it, five and a half games out of first place in the NL West.

Dodger Batter of the Week: Matt Kemp had a heck of a week, hitting .409/.500/.955 with four home runs, 13 RBI, six runs scored, and five walks. Kemp hit a game-tying grand slam against the Reds on Saturday, one of two home runs on the day for Kemp on a day that he set a career high with six RBI. On the season, Kemp's 48 RBI are two behind Adrian Gonzalez of Boston for the major league lead.

Honorable mention goes to Chad Billingsley, who was 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, a walk, 3 RBI, and two runs scored in his two games this week. It was a heck of a week at the plate for Dodgers with the middle name of Ryan, as Matthew Ryan Kemp and Chad Ryan Billingsley both wreaked havoc with a bat in their hands.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week: Ted Lilly quieted the Rockies on Tuesday over seven innings, allowing just two runs while striking out eight. The pitching staff on the whole had a solid week, especially the bullpen, which posted a 2.08 ERA and 2.67 FIP in 17 1/3 innings.

Week 10 Record:  4-2
36 runs scored (6.00 per game)
22 runs allowed (3.67 per game)
.711 pythagorean winning percentage

Season Record:  28-32
223 runs scored (3.72 per game)
248 runs allowed (4.13 per game)
.452 pythagorean winning percentage (27-33)

Transactions:

  • Saturday: Rafael Furcal (strained left oblique) and Jon Garland (right shoulder inflammation) each made their second trip to the disabled list this season. To take their place, the Dodgers recalled infielder Ivan DeJesus and pitcher John Ely from Albuquerque.

Game Results:

Upcoming Week: The Dodgers finish up their 10-game road trip, running the 2007 & 2009 NLDS gauntlet through Philadelphia and Colorado.
