The Los Angeles Dodgers are threatening to pull away in the National League West which in reality is San Francisco who is the only team with a chance to cause trouble. The LAD are getting strong performances in all areas which makes this team tough to handle right now although Milwaukee did Saturday. Clayton Kershaw threw another complete game but a pair of long balls did him in. The bats didn't help with ust seven hits that saw Justin Turner drive in a run with Matt Kemp going yard in the 9th to make things interesting. Dan Haren hopes to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a boost on the mound in Sunday's finale'. Haren has been impressive the past two times out with three runs allowed on nine hits over 13.1 innings.
The Dodgers need another big effort on the bump from Haren if the offfense struggles and from what I have seen I would rather take a shot with the better odds or walk away...
