While Yasiel Puig was busy getting arrested for driving 97 mph in a 50 mph zone, the Dodgers climbed back to .500 on the strong backs of Clayton Kershaw and Carl Crawford. In the Colorado series starting tonight, the Blue can do that one better. They can take the Rockies out of first place. In fact, with a sweep, the Dodgers could surpass the Rockies. But one game at a time.
Tonight, Ted Lilly is in his second start of the year, going up against Tyler Chatwood. Lilly had a decent first start of the year, but as oldbrooklynfan said, we’re gonna need more than two runs tonight. Hanley Ramirez may be in the game tonight. Tuesday sees Hyun-Jin Ryu against Jorge De La Rosa. Ryu has so far been rock solid in his starts. Wednesday’s starters are Josh Beckett and Juan Nicasio. We’ll see if Beckett can keep the balls in the ballpark; so far, he seems to like to give up two HR’s per game. If he keeps all the balls in the ballpark, look for Donnie to make up for it by bringing in Guerrier in relief.
