Dodgers Week 4: Climbing back

New, 74 comments
MLB: Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Dodgers rebounded last week with five wins in six games to get back to .500, including a sweep of the Padres in San Diego and taking two of three games at home against the Nationals.

Dodgers batter of the week

Yasmani Grandal has an 11-game hitting streak and last week was 8-for-24 (.333) with five extra-base hits and 11 runs batted in. Matt Kemp also had a strong week with two home runs in San Diego.

Dodgers pitcher of the week

Hyun-jin Ryu looked a lot like his old self with a pair of wins, allowing two runs in 13 innings with 17 strikeouts and just three walks. Honorable mention goes to relief pitcher Tony Cingrani, who retired all eight batters faced with six strikeouts.
