That mighty buzz-saw that was the Colorado Rockies rolled into LA, thinking they would no longer be the Dodgers “whipping boys.” The Dodgers had lost two in a row and the offense was woeful. There were also whispers about the Dodgers pitching being on the wane. Well, the boys would have nothing of that, and proceeded to beat down the Rockie hitters, to prevent a 3-game losing streak. TWO IS STILL OUR LONGEST LOSING STREAK THIS YEAR! The Dodgers are now 9-1 against the Rockies. In the last 20+ games a loss, by the Rockies was about as unusual as intelligence in the Commissioners’ Office.
Andre “I Can’t Hit Unless I Can Walk Off” Ethier ended the 2-2 deadlock in the 13th with his 7th walk-off in 2 years. The Jonas Brothers favorite Dodger seems to be “locked-in to win” when the game is on the line. After the game, the Dodgers ended with a tie for the best ERA in baseball (Tied with SF at 3.61). Jiminez looked good after 3 previous beat-downs by Dodger hitters and tonight it is up to Chad Billingsley as Jason Marquis goes for the Rockies. It’s the “battle of the aces.”
- I notice Tony Abreu is back with AAA
- Utley deserves to be the All-Star 2B
- Blake should be on the All-Star Team
