Dodger Daydreams

The Los Angeles Dodgers barely tied the Baltimore Orioles at four in today's game. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Andre Ethier blooped a two-out single to even up the score. Unfortunately, the Dodgers have still not witnessed their second win of Spring Training.

The Recap:

1) Xavier Paul, a center-fielder, smacked the first home-run for the Dodgers in Spring Training thus far. The two-RBI homer occurred in the ninth inning, enabling Ethier to later tie up the game with his bloop single. I'd like to congratulate Paul on being the first Dodger to hit a long ball in 2008.

2) Juan Pierre, competing against Andre Ethier for the starting job in Left-Field, went two for three on the day with one run. Suddenly, the outfielder has increased his batting average from like .091 to .214 in a couple of days. Under the pressure of losing his job, his performance has been remarkable.

3) Chad Billingsley pitched two full innings giving up one run on three hits. However, the starter struck out two batters in the outing. Complaining of a tight left groin last week, his performance today thankfully looked fine.

4) Jason Johnson has been eyeing up the #5 spot on the Dodgers' Starting Rotation for the 2008 Regular Season. He threw two scoreless innings today, walking one batter but striking out one in return. He has the potential to be a solid pitcher for the Dodgers' organization if he continues to enhance his pitching mechanics.

5) James Loney, our talented first-baseman, went two for three today. Both of hits were doubles which gave him four total bases in the game. Hopefully, he will continue to play this well during the Regular Season.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have a double-header against the Washington Nationals tomorrow. I'm expecting the Dodgers to at least grab one win, if not two. Lets go get them!
