An Offensive Explosion
The Dodgers beat the Marlins 14 to 5 tonight. The Dodger bats came alive, getting 19 hits!
The Marlins' pitcher, Dontrell Willis -- nicknamed D-Train, brought a record of seven wins and no losses into tonight's game. So it was fun watching the D-Train jump the track.
Our dominant closer Eric Gagne, who was racked in his last trip to the mound (his first after coming off the Disabled List), returned to form and got the Marlins out 1-2-3 in the top of the 9th inning. The Dodgers flash the "Game Over" sign seen above when he comes out to close the game.
Dodger management appears to have ended the disastrous $2 Tuesday promotion and tonight's game had about 4,000 fewer attendees than the last Tuesday night game. But no one ran on the field or threw trash on the field either. Of course, when your team scores 14 runs it's pretty easy to be well behaved.
