After getting swept by the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park for the second time this season, the Los Angeles Dodgers responded by taking two of three games and winning the series against the San Diego Padres at Dodger Stadium.

It was a frustrating week for the most part with the Dodgers’ offense scoring just seven runs in six games and the end result being a 2-4 record.

Let’s analyze the players who had success during the six-game span and those that did not.

Trending Down:

Jimmy Rollins: Starting in five games this week, Rollins’ season-long struggles continued. In 22 plate appearances, he managed to record just five singles and draw one walk. His batting line dropped to a disappointing .201/.277/.333.

Yasmani Grandal: Before suffering a mild concussion in Friday’s game that forced him to the seven-day concussion disabled list, Grandal posted a .200 batting average for the week (2-for-10) without drawing a walk.

As a silver lining, he didn’t strikeout at all and hit the ball hard in most of his plate appearances. As the week concluded, his slash line sits at .291/.403/.466.

Howie Kendrick: In 24 plate appearances, Kendrick reached base just five times (four singles, one double). In addition, he struck out four times and didn’t draw a walk. Despite the rare down-week, his batting line remains solid at .293/.348/.445.
