The Los Angeles Dodgers spent this past week facing a heavy does of NL West foes. After losing the last game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Dodgers swept the Colorado Rockies.

The San Diego Padres were next on the Dodgers’, as the Boys in Blue began a six-game road trip Friday. Unfortunately, the first game didn’t go to the Dodgers way as Kenley Jansen blew a save opportunity.

As the Dodgers continue to work towards finding their groove, they find themselves slowly gaining ground on division-leading San Francisco Giants. Clayton Kershaw’s performance Wednesday night provided plenty to talk about. While pitching his first career no-hitter, Kershaw showed once again why he is considered one of the best pitchers in baseball.

The Dodgers have finished Saturday four games behind the Giants as both teams won their respective games.
