Dodgers Undefeated In July

Finally, a reason to cheer. (Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE)

The Dodgers were able to salvage a game out of a wretched week, winning their finale against the New York Mets 8-3 on Sunday night at Dodger Stadium. The eight runs not only snapped a seven-game losing streak but also matched the Dodgers' offensive output of the last eight games combined.

Clayton Kershaw allowed just one earned run in seven innings and struck out nine, including five of the last nine batters he faced. Dee Gordon overcame two errors in the third inning to collect two hits and an RBI, and he tied a career-high with three stolen bases. James Loney snapped an 0-for-28 skid with a run-scoring double in the seventh inning, one of two RBI on the night for Loney.

After a seven-game losing streak that saw them score five total runs, all eight starting position players for the Dodgers had at least one run or one RBI on Sunday.

But the most important fact to take away from the Dodgers' one-game winning streak is this:

The Dodgers are 8-0 when Adam Kennedy bats fifth this season.
