Dodgers Week 7 In Review: No Offense, No Problem

New, comments

Despite having their offensive struggles during the week, the Dodgers still ended up winning four of six.  By sweeping the Mets and taking a game against the Angels, the Dodgers ended the week with a bigger lead in the division (7½ games) than when they started (6 games).

Dodger Batter of the WeekCasey Blake continued his torrid hitting, putting up a .500/.571/.778 after starting the week with a tight hamstring.  Blake is hitting .373/.436/.672 in May, with 15 runs and 13 RBI in 20 games.

Dodger Pitcher of the Week:  The Dodger bullpen had a strong week collectively, but the standout was Jonathan Broxton, who pitched five scoreless innings.  He pitched in all three games in the Mets series, then pitched two scoreless innings Saturday night to get his fifth victory of the year.  He is the fastest Dodger reliever to reach five wins since Charlie Hough in 1976.

Week 7 Record:  4-2
23 runs scored (3.83 per game)
23 runs allowed (3.83 per game)
.500 pythagorean winning percentage

Overall Seasonal Record:  30-15
245 runs scored (5.44 per game)
175 runs allowed (3.89 per game)
.662 pythagorean winning percentage

The Dodgers have the best record in baseball, the best run differential in baseball,

Manny Suspension Countdown:  16 games down, 34 games to go; 39 days until July 3 at Petco Park

Upcoming Week:  The Dodgers face a huge test this week, as they not only go on the road to Colorado for three games and Wrigley Field for four games, but they also will likely get two starts each from Eric Stults and Eric Milton, including two nationally televised games next weekend on Fox and ESPN.
