Runs Have Been A Rarity For Dodgers

Heading into tonight's game with the Brewers, here is where the Dodgers rank among the 16 National League teams in offense:

  • 15th in runs per game (3.54)
  • 10th in OBP (.317)
  • 13th in slugging percentage (.361)
  • 12th in OPS (.678)
  • 10th in adjusted OPS (91; with 100 being average)
  • Sixth in batting average (.254, woo hoo!)
  • 12th in doubles (58)
  • Tied for 14th in home runs (27)
  • 12th in walks (116)


Here are the lineups tonight that will face Jon Garland and Shaun Marcum. Marcum is fifth in the NL in strikeout-to-walk ratio at 4.17. Garland is pitching on three days rest, as he threw two innings (and drove in a run!) on Thursday in Pittsburgh before the rains came.
