See, the Dodgers can score runs. Sometimes lots of them. Like in Monday’s 6-3 victory over the Braves.
It marked the first time the Dodgers had scored more than three runs in a game in 10 days ... and the only time they'd even scored three during that stretch was in Sunday’s 11-3 loss to San Diego.
It took them a while to get going Monday – it was a 2-2 game going into the bottom of the eighth – but then the runs flowed, just like the good ol' days, back when they led all of baseball in home runs earlier this year.
Andre Ethier, Alex Guerrero and Jimmy Rollins all homered in the eighth inning, and suddenly the Dodgers had a comfortable cushion.
