September 21 game chat

Jeremy Lundblad of ESPN.com compares the Dodger offense to Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki, and it’s not pretty.

Did you know that the Dodgers are on pace for the third-lowest September batting average for a team in the past 50 years — and that’s after batting .306 in the Colorado series?

On the bright side, here’s something from the Dodger press notes: “According to John Labombarda at Elias, (A.J.) Ellis became the first Major League player to go 7-for-8 or better in a series (.875 BA or higher, minimum seven hits) since Pittsburgh’s Freddy Sanchez had eight hits in nine at-bats in a three-game set at Wrigley Field in May 2009. The Kentucky native was the first player to do that for the Dodgers since Jim Gilliam went 7-for-8 in a two-game series at Chicago in August 1959.”
