The Los Angeles Dodgers offense ranks 10th in batting average, 8th in runs scored, 2nd in home runs and 2nd in on base percentage, however you would never know that based on how the team has played this past week. Over the last six games, the Dodgers have scored just 3 runs. That's 3 runs and 34 hits in 54 innings. LA is 2-4 over that span.
If it wasn't for Mike Bolsinger and Zack Greinke making two great starts, this Dodger team could be on a 6 game losing streak. Despite the lack of offense, LA is still sitting atop the NL West, 1.5 games ahead of the San Francisco Giants.
After scoring their only run against the Rockies in the 4th inning on Sunday night, the Dodgers were held scoreless over their next 35 innings. This included being shutout 3 straight times against their rivals, the San Francisco Giants.
Over these 6 games, the Dodgers as a team are hitting just .183.
Take a look at some of their players numbers over this dreadful span
- Joc Pederson - 5/21, 1 run, 2 doubles, 1 home run, 1 RBI
- Jimmy Rollins - 2/20, 0 runs, 1 double, 0 RBI
- Howie Kendrick - 5/22, 0 runs, 1 double, 0 RBI
- Adrian Gonzalez - 4/15, 1 run, 0 extra base hits 0 RBI
- Yasmani Grandal - 3/12, 0 runs, 1 double, 1 RBI
- Andre Ethier - 2/14, 0 runs, 1 double, 1 RBI
- Alex Guerrero - 3/20, 0 runs, 0 extra base hits, 0 RBI
- Justin Turner - 3/14, 1 run, 0 extra base hits, 0 RBI
I think it's safe to say the Los Angeles Dodgers are missing Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford. Both outfielders are currently on the disabled list.
The bats and Clayton Kershaw are going to have to wake up if the Dodgers plan on winning the NL West, as they have the Giants and Padres to worry about.
