Heading into the final series of their current homestand, the Dodgers are still lingering in second place in the West division, currently sitting 2-1/2 games behind the Diamondbacks. In the first two contests against the Rockies over the weekend, the club’s offense was dormant; however, in the finale, the bats woke up and the Boys in Blue were able to salvage a 6-4 victory.

As it stands now, the Dodgers own a 38-35 record and are in sole possession of second place in the National League West, trailing the Diamondbacks by just 2-1/2 games. When considering the number of adjustments the club has made over the first three months of the season due to injuries, that’s not a bad standing by any means. If Los Angeles is able to stay relatively healthy through the summer months into the fall, seemingly, the sky may be the limit in terms of future success.

The Dodgers just keep plugging along. Lose a starting pitcher? No problem! Lose another? No biggie! Injuries and other circumstances have had the Dodgers pushing their pitching staff to the brink. But the offense has got their pitchers’ backs, scoring enough to keep them in games everyday. They are a rather impressive 15-5 through their last 20 games, even with all the wrenches the baseball gods keep throwing their way. It’s a tight rope act right now and so far, the Dodgers have yet to fall.
