Dodgers Week 6 review: More losses

USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers saw their losing streak extend to eight games, their longest since 2008, but ended the week with a pair of wins over the Marlins.

The Dodgers continued their free fall, getting swept by the Diamondbacks and seeing their losing streak reach eight games. The Dodgers even lost to the lowly Marlins before coming to their senses with two wins to end their week.

Dodger Batter of the Week: Thanks to a pair of injuries on the infield, Nick Punto stepped into the void with two doubles and a home run, and he led the team with five runs scored, four runs batted in, and four walks.

Honorable mention goes to Adrian Gonzalez, who battled a painful neck injury and still hit .389 with a double and a home run.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week: Paco Rodriguez continued his rapid rise in the bullpen by retiring 13 of the 14 batters he faced, with four strikeouts.

Honorable mention goes to Hyun-jin Ryu, who pitched at least six innings in the first eight starts of his career, and to Clayton Kershaw, who allowed one earned run in seven innings in his only start of the week.

Week 6 Record: 2-4
23 runs scored (3.83 per game)
26 runs allowed (4.33 per game)
.444 pythagorean winning percentage

Season Record: 15-21
127 runs scored (3.53 per game)
157 runs allowed (4.36 per game)
.404 pythagorean winning percentage (15-21)

Transactions:

  • Monday: A full 10 days after he strained his right quad, Mark Ellis was placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Apr. 26. Ellis, it should be noted, likely won't be back for another week or so. The move allowed Chris Capuano to be activated from the DL to start against Arizona.
  • Tuesday: The Dodgers placed utility man Jerry Hairston on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left groin, and recalled utility man Elian Herrera from Triple-A Albuquerque.
  • Wednesday: After obliterating Pacific Coast League pitching, catcher Tim Federowicz was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque. Justin Sellers, seeing his playing time drastically reduced, was optioned to Triple-A.
  • Friday: Scott Van Slyke might have been recalled three days earlier but the team was concerned that he hadn't played outfield yet in 2013. Three days in the outfield with Albuquerque brought him back up to the Dodgers, with Elian Herrera optioned back to Triple-A. To make room for Van Slyke on the 40-man roster, starting pitcher Chad Billingsley was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Game Results:

Upcoming Week: The Dodgers run the Andres Galarraga gauntlet this week, returning home to host the Nationals, then hit the road to face the Braves.
