Well, the Dodgers actually scored some runs! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! WHOOO! YEAH! GO TEAM!
They snapped their scoreless inning streak, but it wasn’t enough to beat the Mets, who beat the Dodgers 3-2. David Wright had a home run that he simply crushed off a ball that wasn’t a hanger. In fact, it looked like he golfed (cricketed?) the ball into the Pavilion.
While I’m happy that the team scored runs, hopefully reminding the rest of the team that it’s something that they can do, so that they can hopefully stop this whole 5 game losing streak thing…I’m more excited that Andre Ethier has avoided the disabled list with an oblique strain! This is very exciting, as the oblique is very important to baseball playing. And sitting, standing up, sneezing, breathing, sleeping, what have you. In any case, he’s day-to-day, and while I hope he’s not just saying that (like he did with his knee last season), I am extremely cheered that he’s doing ok.
So, maybe tomorrow will hold better news for the Dodgers. At any rate, it’s one day closer to the returns of Mark Ellis and Matt Kemp.
