The Dodgers blasted the Colorado Rockies 16-6 today. The Dodgers scored seven runs in the fourth inning and eight runs in the seventh inning. Russell Martin, Matt Kemp, James Loney and Juan Castro all had three hits. Eric Stults, who returned from a thumb injury, struggled, allowing four earned runs and walking SEVEN in 4 1/3 innings. The Dodgers have won nine of their last 12 games and still have the best record in baseball at 31-15.
Manny Ramirez returned to Dodger Stadium on Monday – away from the Dodgers and bright lights – and worked out, according to mlb.com. The Dodgers were on the road in Colorado when Ramirez worked out. It was the first time he has worked out at Dodger Stadium since May 7, when he was suspended 50 games for failing a drug test.
