Barajas makes Debut In Blue, Dodgers Win

The Dodgers beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-3 tonight. This is what happens when the Dodger offense actually gives the starting pitcher some run support. They got that run support from a guy making his Dodger debut, Rod Barajas.What a night for the newest Dodger. He went 3 for 4 with a homerun, two doubles and three RBI.

Ted Lilly continues his hot Dodger start. He went 6 1/3 innings tonight, giving up three runs on seven hits while striking out two Brewers. Lilly improves to 5-0 with an era of 1.84 as a member of the Dodgers.

Then there's Matt Kemp. The Bison crushed a 447-foot homerun tonight off of Milwaukee starter Dave Bush. The ball actually got lodged in the scoreboard! It was Kemp's 22nd homerun on the year and his third straight game hitting one out.

Hong Chih-Kuo earned his fifth save of the year after pitching a scoreless ninth inning.


  1. Barajas and Kemp hitting home runs just made this Dodger fan happy. Man, do I love the way Ted Lilly has been pitching.

    It's nice to see a guy like Barajas whose from Norwalk doing well. That's about 5-10 minutes from where I grew up. (Whittier)

  2. I love it when a local guy comes back home and plays well for the Dodgers.

  3. Baseball 101
    1 - Lose Mets uniform.
    2 - Find hitting stroke again.

  4. BTB- It happens to former Dodgers when they take off the Dodger blue too.

  5. HAHA. Yeah, my grandpa says that too about former Dodgers.

  6. Yeah, they turn into hall of famers!
