It Started With A Bang
YouTube Link: WSCKKKK:
Following a night where he hit 3 doubles and recorded 2 RBI's, Jeff Kent started the scoring Friday evening with a solo homerun in the 2nd inning. Five more Dodgers would follow him with hits as the Dodgers sprinted to a 5-0 lead after two. The Dodgers have started to look alive these past three days and the results show. They have a three game winning streak having scored 6 runs in each game. The Dodgers have recorded a total of 29 hits that includes 9 doubles and 3 homeruns.
Eric Stults was masterful in his 7 innings last night. Broxton was sharp in his one inning. Proctor faltered a bit, giving up two runs, but the magic hands of Saito saved the day. He recorded his 32nd save of the year. The Dodgers won the game 6-4.
Once again hope is renewed as the Dodgers look ready to finish this marathon strong. Unfortunately, as with any season, questions still remain. Will the pitching staff stay off the injured list? Can our hitters remain consistent? Can our rookies come through in the stretch?
I just hope it isn't too late. We are 6 1/2 games out of first and 2 1/2 games behind in the wild card race. 40 games are left in the season and time is getting short. All I know is that I'm crossing my fingers and praying to the great Dodger in the sky.
