Spreading the Hits Around

Ok, so I’m sure the way the Dodgers lost last night’s game was not how many were expecting, bu until Saito blew the save, this was looking like it was going to be a really nice shared victory.  It’s worth noting that every starter except one had at least one hit in the game, and the guy who didn’t add a notch on his belt wasn’t who you thought it would be – it was Raffy!  Furcal still played great, including an amazing defensive play with DeWitt to save a sure run with two men on in the third.

One interesting stat I learned from Vin tonight while driving home: excluding tonight’s performance, in 2008, Dodger pitchers have a 4.50 ERA in night games and a 1.50 ERA in day games.  Just something to keep an eye on.

One other interesting offensive stat from this hitting-deprived team: James Loney has quietly gone about establishing a nice little 13-game hit streak.  Go James!
