The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/26/09 – Andre Either
Total Pro Sports – The Colorado Rockies have been on fire lately, climbing back to within two games of top spot in the NL West. Last night they looked to gain another game on the Dodgers and make the deficit one, but Andre Ethier had other plans on his mind.
Ethier was Rockie’s pitcher Josh Fogg’s worst nightmare last night as he factored in three of the Dodgers six runs, in what would end up as a 6-1 final. The Dodgers’ right fielder blaster two homers on a night where he would go 3 for 4 at the plate, driving in three runs, and as a result, earn himself “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Wednesday, August 26th, 2009.
The Dodgers now find themselves back in front by two games with just over a month remaining in the season. They have seen their hot start and early lead in the division diminish, but will get one more chance to give themselves some added breathing room today when they take on the Rockies for the finale of their three-game set. This battle will likely come down to the final week, but the Dodgers should be worried about those “cardiac kids” in Colorado. Late season comebacks are nothing new to them. They have done it before, and it looks like they may be on their way to doing it again.
