A look at today's finale at Coors Field, by the numbers:

  • One:  Plate appearance by Manny Ramirez in two games since he was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Friday
  • Two:  Home runs by Todd Helton this weekend, after two home runs in his previous 31 games and four home runs on the season before Friday
  • Three: Saves by the Dodgers this week: two by Hong-Chih Kuo, and one by Octavio Dotel
  • Four:  Extra-base hits by Rod Barajas, in his four games as a Dodger
  • Five:  Straight wins by Ted Lilly as a Dodger. The last Dodger pitcher to win six games in a calendar month was Burt Hooton, in August 1975
  • Six:  Consecutive series finales with the Rockies won by the Dodgers, after splitting the first two games
  • Seven:  Straight games with a home run for the Dodgers, a season-high streak
  • Eight:  Doubles in August by Andre Ethier
  • Nine: Game hitting streak by Ryan Theriot, who is hitting .333/.366/.513 during that span. Theriot also has nine multi-hit games as a Dodger.
