Dodgers Starting Rotation, Turn By Turn

Despite holding bulk auditions at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers starting rotation hasn't needed much help this season.

Wednesday night was the Dodgers' 64th game of the season, and it completed another turn through the rotation. The Dodgers were able to skip the fifth starter spot during the season's opening week thanks to an off day, but since then they have taken 12 complete turns through the rotation. The starters have been steady pretty much all year, with only a few blips.

The Dodgers starters have allowed more than 12 runs in just three of their 12 full runs through the rotation, with an ERA of higher than 3.38 just twice. They have averaged over six innings per start in nine of the 12 times through the rotation and have never fallen more than four outs short of doing so, meaning for the most part the bullpen hasn't been too taxed.

This last time through the rotation produced the lowest ERA of the season at 1.97, and the collective 31 strikeouts were the second most of their 12 full turns through the rotation. If you want an answer to "how are the Dodgers winning?" the starting rotation is a good place to start.
