    Steve Lyons – “That ball wasn’t even close to going out of the ball park.” So hitting the wall isn’t close to going out? I agree he shouldn’t be admiring the hit and just running, but it was close.

    Dodger Blue is ascendant. Ahead 2-0 is great.
    after thinking about Schu and Crawford comparison in the outfield, I guess my main conclusion is that the Dodgers are not in danger of having too many outfielders if one of them is not decisively better than Skip Schumaker.

    • Anonymous

      So until Kemp returns we are actually short ofs.

    • Anonymous

      Skippy is a utility player with some value because he can play multiple position and hits from the left side putting up an almost respectable.678 against righties. He has been called upon a bit more than one might like because of injuries.

        the 2 out 2 run double to tie it a 2.

  • Anonymous

    The Dodgers are occupying some historic club heights with a 22-5 record starting on June 22.

    In doing some research to try to determine the club’s best record over 27 games I found that in 1953 the Dodgers had a period of 23-4. The club won 13 in a row from August 7 through August 20 that year, part of a stretch of 23-3. After back-to-back losses, which put them at 23-4 and then 23-5, they won six more in a row for a 29-5 streak.

    The 1947 club won 13 in a row, July 21-July 31, and had a streak of 22-5 (not counting a tie that was presumably stopped by rain). The Dodgers then lost three straight.

    The 1962 Dodgers also won 13 in a row and had a 27-game record of 22-5.

    The losing winning streak in club history was 15 in Brooklyn in 1924, from August 25 though the first game of a doubleheader on Sept. 6. They were 22-3 at one point during a torrid period, but they then lost a pair in succession for a 22-5 mark. Three more wins then followed for a 25-5 period.

    The Dodgers began the 1955 season — the only one in which they won a World Series in Brooklyn — with 10 straight wins. They then lost two of three before winning 11 more in succession for a season-opening mark of 22-2. Two straight losses followed and then came a win for a 23-4 start. A pair of wins in a row put them at 25-4. However, they had won their final four games of 1954. When you add those to the scintillating start in 1955, they actually had a 27-game period of 25-2 that went on to 26-2.

    The was not a scientific study, but just an examination of some prior seasons that included long winning streaks. Someone else may be able to come up with something more definitive.

    Mattingly on Beli from dodgers.com:
    Mattingly said the difference in Belisario when he’s good from when he’s not is the movement of his pitches.
    “All spring it was sideways,” Mattingly said. “But Rick [Honeycutt,
    pitching coach] kept working with him. The velocity was always there, he
    was throwing hard but it was just sideways. Now it goes down and that’s
    the difference. He threw two balls [Tuesday] night to Bautista that
    were just filthy.”
