With the Los Angeles Dodgers trying to put their early season troubles behind them, the team went 5-2 over the week. The Dodgers took the final game against Colorado and split a series with Cincinnati to finish a road trip. The return home brought Arizona to Dodger Stadium where the Dodgers scored victories in the first two games of the series.

The Dodgers offense appears to have found a groove with strong performances helping the team drive in 29 runs over the last seven games. With the team hoping to continue the turnaround, Dan Mattingly expressed optimism over the Dodgers’ prospects for the remaining months. He was quick to praise the bench players and believed the team can build towards a World Series run.
