It was a decent week for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they picked up a series win against the Colorado Rockies, but dropped one to the Pittsburgh Pirates. With roughly two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Dodgers’ magic number is seven entering play Monday, and they could clinch the National League West as early as next weekend.
As the team posted a 3-3 record, let’s look back at the best and worst individual performances during the six-game span.
Chase Utley: Making four starts last week, Utley reached base three times in 22 plate appearances (.136 on-base percentage); he singled, walked, got hit by a pitch and struck out three times.
While the results didn’t show, he put the ball in play 77 percent of the time, indicating he had some BABIP-related bad luck. For the season, his slash line sits at .216/.303/.375
Chris Heisey: Starting in four games last week, Heisey picked up two hits in 12 at-bats (.167 batting average) but drew four walks, as well. Since being re-acquired by the Dodgers, he’s hitting just .143 (3-for-21) with two singles and a double.
