Over the last couple months, the Dodgers offense has either been awful, or amazing. This was one of those amazing weeks. Every regular except Lofton and Nomar posted positive weeks, and while the heart of the lineup wasn't great, Furcal, Martin and Betemit picked up the slack.

The Dodgers had been slumping a bit offensively prior to this week, with the pitching carrying the team when it was able to pull out a win. Looks like they're back on track.
