Dodgers Week 15: Sweeping success

New, 252 comments
MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

It turns out the All-Star break didn’t slow the Dodgers down. After the four-day break, the Dodgers picked up right where they left off with yet another sweep, this time on the road against the Marlins.

At the All-Star Game, Cody Bellinger held his own in making the second round of the Home Run Derby, falling to eventual champion Aaron Judge. Then in the All-Star Game, Bellinger, Corey Seager, and Justin Turner combined to go 0-for-6, extending the Dodgers hitless midsummer classic streak to six years.

Alex Wood allowed a run in his inning during the All-Star Game, then allowed none when it counted in Miami. Kenley Jansen struck out three in his scoreless All-Star inning but committed a balk, then committed another balk on the same mound on Sunday. He hadn’t balked since 2011, when he had two.

The Dodgers ended the week with nine straight wins and 29 wins in their last 33 games. Enjoy the ride.

Batter of the week

Cody Bellinger did not see his swing turned to dust by the Home Run Derby, going 5-for-12 (.417) against the Marlins, including the third cycle in the last 60 years by the Dodgers. He narrowly beat out Yasiel Puig, who homered twice on Friday, including a three-run shot with two outs in the ninth to snatch victory from defeat.

Pitcher of the week

Alex Wood continued his romp through the National League, with six more scoreless innings on Saturday against Miami, improving to 11-0.
