Road Trip Rough Spots For Dodgers

Tonight is Juan Rivera's seventh start at first base in 12 games in National League parks since his return from the disabled list on June 4.

The Dodgers have a chance to end their road trip from hell on a relative high note with two more games left in San Francisco against the Giants. With 13 runs and one win in six games, the offense has been a problem. During the current road trip, Dodgers...

  • ...third basemen (Juan Uribe 16 plate appearances, Elian Herrera four PA, Adam Kennedy three PA) are 1-for-22 with a double, one RBI, a walk, and nine strikeouts.
  • ...catchers (A.J. Ellis 17 PA, Matt Treanor seven PA) are 2-for-21 with no RBI, two walks and eight strikeouts.
  • ...first basemen (James Loney 15 PA, Juan Rivera 11 PA) are 3-for-24 with a double, two walks, one RBI, and two double plays.
  • ...center fielders (Tony Gwynn Jr. 21 PA, Herrera three PA) are 4-for-22 with a double, two walks, and no RBI.

The Dodgers need a little luck change, and what better way to turn things around than the latest edition of Between Two Palm Trees with Ellis and Clayton Kershaw:
