The Dodgers had a field day at the Rogers Centre tonight, eh. "Eh Jeh" Ellis had a two-run HR to open up the game (AJEllis went 4-for-6 with 5 RBI). Carl Crawford went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI, looking like he might be coming out of his slump. Hanley Ramirez was 2-for-5 with 2 runs scored and a double. And the surprise offensive output came from Skip Schumaker, who was 2-for-5 with 3 RBI off a three-run HR in the seventh inning, opening up a 14-4 lead. In fact, the only starter to not get a hit today was Juan Uribe, 0-for-4 with 4 LOB (Yasiel Puig was 1-for-5 with 6 LOB and some horrifyingly embarrassing strikeouts, but to be fair, like Uribe, he had some great defensive plays).
Hyun-Jin Ryu went 5.1 IP and gave up 9 H, but only 4 ER (2 BB, 3 Ks). It wasn't stellar Ryu, but it was more than enough tonight. Jose Dominguez, JP Howell, and Chris Withrow had 3.2 innings of work among them, yielding only one more run to the Blue Jays.
After struggling through a slew of low-scoring games in Colorado and the first two games of the Nationals series, it's nice to see the Dodgers have big offensive outputs two nights in a row (23 runs total in the two games). For a split second here, for the second day in a row, the Dodgers are tied for first. Let's see how the evening ends.
