Forgot to mention this in any of my previous posts today, but Andre Ethier was named the N.L. Player of the Week today (he actually shared the award with Houston’s Roy Oswalt). For the week, Ethier led the majors in average (.650), OBP (.741) and slugging (1.200). He kept it up tonight by going 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles and is now batting .500 (21 for 42) in the 11 games since Joe Torre moved Manny Ramirez into the spot directly behind Ethier in the order. Hey, if Jeff Kent doesn’t like Manny getting the credit for helping him get hot, then somebody else will be happy to hit there. … Don’t worry about tonight. Yes, the Dodgers are supposed to beat teams like the Padres, especially when they’re fighting for a playoff spot. But every once in a while, you just run into a pitcher like this. Cha Seung Baek was all but unhittable tonight, shutting out the boys on three hits over seven innings. And every once in a while, that unhittable pitcher is the same guy you rocked for seven runs over 3 2/3 innings just six days earlier. Dodgers fall to 73-71, but in this crazy division, that’s still good enough for a 1 1/2-game lead over the Snakes.
