Dodgers hitters roll through Ohio

Overall Record – 44/26
June Record – 11/5
Position – 1 game back of Rockies
Highlights of June so far:

  • The Dodgers swept the Reds at Dodger Stadium and on the road in a span of ten days, and they did it without Clayton Kershaw pitching in any of the six games.
  • They have won nine of their last ten games
  • Won five out of six in Ohio stumbling only when the Indians made a determined charge up the Hill.

Hitting Highlights:

  • Justin Turner has hit in every game this month that he’s played, leading the team in OPS at 1.169
  • Cody Bellinger is evidently going to put his name on every single LAD monthly home run leaderboard as he already has eight in June.
  • Chris Taylor is doing his best Davey Lopes imitation with six steals without being caught.
  • The Puig and Pederson show are back. Both have an OPS over.850 in the same month for the first time since…………I’ll look it up if they can do this for the whole month.  Last June, for example, they both finished the month with an OPS barely over .800.
  • Overall the Dodgers have fourteen stolen bases while being caught three times.
  • Puig/Bellinger/Taylor have combined for a perfect 12 for 12 in stolen bases.
  • Grandal is struggling mightily and not showing any signs of slump relief.
  • Logan Forsythe was struggling mightily but might have cracked the code with his monstrous home run and a sweet single to center yesterday.
  • Chase has come back to earth.

    Good to see Joc hitting since coming off the DL. Seager is about as reliable as they come.I think Taylor has been both lucky and good, so it’s nice to see his performance hasn’t cratered, just come down to a more sustainable level. I sometimes forget that Gutierrez is on the team.

    • Gutierrez has only one job which is to clobber LHP. If he can’t do that he is a liability on the bench because he can only play LF, can’t run, and can’t hit RHP. I suspect they hold onto him all summer because of that one ability but it must be tempting to put him on the DL and let one Eibner/SVS/Thompson/ come up to give the bench a better balance. It helps that Kiké is filling the role as super sub and is basically two bench players in one.
