Congrats to the boys in blue for hitting 13 games over .500 for the first time this year. The Dodgers have the best record in the NL and have scored an astounding 41 runs in the last five games, extending right before the All-Star break. Their five-game winning streak is also their longest of the year. The Dodgers remain one game ahead of the Padres.
With Jeff Kent banging three-run homers, and Matt Kemp showing an utterly effortless home run swing of his own, and Brad Penny in lockdown mode with 8 Ks over seven strong innings, and James Loney playing incredible defense at first base, it is a joy to watch this team perform.
DO NOT TRADE LONEY OR KEMP, NED!!!
