LAst Night's Action: Dodgers Explode in Rainy Denver

LA Dodgers defeat Colorado Rockies 8-2. No Andre Ethier, no problems for the Dodgers in Coors Field. Out of the lineup with an infected big toe, the Dodgers used Tony Gwynn, Jr., Justin Sellers and Aaron Miles ahead of MVP candidate Matt Kemp in the cleanup spot. It wasn’t a lineup that inspired a lot of confidence.

But they got it done right off the bat when Sellers doubled off of starter Jason Hammel and Miles singled him home in the first inning. The bottom half of the order continued the work in the second inning when Rod Barajas singled home Juan Rivera who led off the inning with a double.

Then in the third inning, the two halves merged. After James Loney hit an RBI single, Barajas belted a three-run homer that capped off a four-RBI game. Gwynn decided he wanted in on the action with a solo homer of his own in the fourth inning for his second homer of the season and the road trip. I guess that was his boomstick I saw him packing last Sunday.

Unfortunately the Dodgers got bitten by the injury bug yet again when Barajas left the game in the sixth inning with an injured groin. For Dodgers’ starter Hiroki Kuroda, this marks his second consecutive game with at least seven runs of support. Saturday’s game will not be televised anywhere - therefore will it really exist?

LA Angels defeat Baltimore Orioles 8-3. Facing a team with the second-worst record in the American League, the game was for all intents and purposes over in the first inning when the Angels got four runs off of Jo-Jo Reyes in the first inning thanks in part to Torii Hunter’s three-run blast. Hunter also tacked on a two-run homer in the seventh inning for his second five-RBI game of the season.
