Dodgers record of sweeping and getting Swept

It was a beautiful night at Dodger Stadium with an almost full moon also taking in the game on Saturday. 

Kershaw pitched  seven strong innings giving up one run on three hits.   Belisario pitched a perfect eighth and Kenley Jansen did the same in the nine to record his 21st save.   Matt Kemp hit his 16th homerun.  

Final score Dodgers 3 Cubs 1.  Hard luck Volstad, who gave up two runs, took the loss. 

Dodgers go for the sweep today when Joe Blanton makes his first start with the Dodgers.   Germano will start for the Cubs. 

Welcome to the Dodgers Blanton!

With the Dodgers going for the sweep today at Dodger Stadium, I was thinking “how many sweeps have they been involved in?”  

Dodgers have swept at Dodger Stadium four times (Pirates, Padres, Rockies & Cardinals). 

Dodgers have been swept two times at Dodger Stadium (Brewers & D’Backs). 

Dodgers have swept on the road three times (Phillies, Mets & Giants)

Dodgers have been swept on the road times two times (Giants & A’s)

So the totals are:  Sweeps = 7 , Swept = 4

Let’s make it five sweeps at Dodger Stadium for a total of eight sweeps overall.

My family and I are big Dodgers fans stuck in DC. We enjoy reading your blog! Makes us feel like We’re back home in LA… Thanks for bringing a little Dodger Blue to the East Coast!

Josh,
Ahhh. that is so nice of you. You are so welcome! I hope Billingsley puts a stop to the two game losing streak. He has had three quality starts but the team needs to step it up and start hitting and winning with consistency. Hopefully bats come alive tonight!
