Home Sweet Home Sort Of
As my friend put it, our long national nightmare is over: interleague play is done. Finito! And calling interleague play is by no means an exaggeration. The Dodgers went 5-10 against the AL.
Though they were not at home, the Dodgers sure as hell played like they were at home in Arizona. They ended up driving the Diamondbacks back into the ground torching them 8-1.
The game started like the most recent Dodgers games: great pitching, inept offense. In the first five innings the Dodgers notched only two hits. That’s when Brad Penny took matters in his own hands.
In the bottom of the sixth Penny led off with a stand-up double which ignited the offense. The Dodgers scored four runs in that inning with Russell Martin sending two home on a sliding triple.
