Dodger Briefs Aug 25th, 2014 – Turner time

  • Dodgers took two out of three from the Mets,  picking up one full game on the Giants who lost two of three against the Nationals. The Dodger lead now sits at 4.5 games.
  • Dodger record in August is 12 – 11 but they thanks to the Met drubbing last night, they have only scored 85 runs to 96 runs allowed
  • Andre Ethier showed up this weekend getting back to back starts for the time in over a month. Andre went three for eight with no runs scored, and no runs driven in.  In August Andre has just three extra base hits in thirty-eight plate appearances.
  • Justin Chigbogu set a Ogden franchise record with his nineteenth home run. Congratulations to Chigbogu but why did he get to spend so much time in a rookie league? It would have been nice to see what he could do as a Loon in late summer after failing there miserably in early spring.
  • Scott Schebler continues to lead the Southern League in triples and home runs. I don’t think that has been done before. I also think Schebler might have the Chattanooga franchise record for home runs as a Dodger affiliate but I have to investigate that.
  • In their last three starts the discount duo have gone thirteen innings while allowing fifteen runs scored. Roberto Hernandez will try to change that trend on Tuesday. Correria has his usual  trend going 6 – 5 – 3 innings while allowing 1 – 4  -7  in his three Dodger starts. Bullpen for you.
  • Justin Turner continues his shocking offensive season hitting .412 for the week and now posting an amazing league leading OPS+ of 134 for 3rd baseman  with at least 250 PA.
