The Bats Are Back in the Dodger Dugout

Well, the Dodgers’ thrashing of the Marlins this evening clearly shows that they can hit. Billingsley looiked solid on the mound by limiting Florida to just one run and three hits while garnering eight Ks. Glad to see he finally picked up a win and helped address the 6.53 ERA he had amassed over his last four starts.

This makes five wins in a row for the boys in blue, and takes them to 14-13 overall. They’ve got a long way to go to challenge the D-backs for first in the NL West, but they are making good strides.

Matt Kemp continues to show why he should be in the starting lineup EVERY NIGHT by getting 3 RBIs and going 3 for 5 on the night.
Top dog for the Dodgers WAS Rafael Furcal who finished 5-of-6 with three runs scored. Kemp and Furcal also combined for three stolen bases.

My boy Kuroda shows up on Thursday night to attempt the sweep – can hardly wait!

GO BLUE
