As surprising as it might seem after Game 1, the Dodgers ended up with a rare split of their 1p and 7p games in the Bronx today, thanks to an unusually gritty performance by Chris Capuano (6.0 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 Ks), coupled with two solid innings of relief from Chris Withrow and a rare offensive breakout at the hands of many. Our first five slots in the lineup:
- Skip Schumaker, 2-for-5 with a run;
- Yasiel Puig, 2-for-4 (including a solo HR) with 3 runs and a RBI;
- Adrian Gonzalez, 3-for-5 (including a double) with a run and a RBI;
- Hanley Ramirez, 2-for-4 with a run and 2 RBI;
- Andre Ethier, 2-for-4 (including a double) with a RBI.
Hard to argue with that output, especially juxtaposed against a Yankees team which scattered only three hits all game.
Speaking of asymmetrical leaves, Brandon League didn't screw things up in the ninth. Luis Cruz and Tim Federowicz each went 0-for-4, the latter leaving 5 on base.
And, the Dodgers didn't have any errors! Imagine that! Off to Petco Park for a night game tomorrow. Good night, everybody!
