The Dodgers bullpen continues to throw zeroes up on the scoreboard.
The once-maligned unit has recorded 13 ⅓ consecutive scoreless innings entering Monday’s game, last allowing a run on Aug. 7 at St. Louis. Opponents are also hitting .093 (4 for 43) with four walks and 12 strikeouts in that span.
Since the All-Star break, the bullpen has a 1.76 earned-run average, the second-lowest in baseball.
“To be honest, I think everyone is contributing at the same time and doing their part,” left-hander Paco Rodriguez said. “The starters are taking us deep into games and are giving us an opportunity to use all our guys in the right situation.
“At the beginning of the year, we worked hard to try to get into rhythm, and we’re just going to try to keep it going now.”
