The Dodgers have scored 15 runs in their last 10 games.
The Mets scored 17 runs … yesterday.
The teams meet tonight in Los Angeles to kick off a four-game series. The Dodgers were outscored 13-0 by the Giants in a three-game series that ended yesterday.
With three days left in the month of June, I dedicate today’s high-five to former Dodger slugger Pedro “Pete” Guerrero.
Boy, could we use his bat right now.
Guerrero hit 15 home runs in June 1985, a record that stood until Sammy Sosa hit 20 in June 1998.
Yes, Sammy Strikeout holds the record, but Guerrero hit his home runs in an era when home runs were tough to come by. Especially in pitcher-friendly Dodger Stadium.
Also, no one ever accused Pete Guerrero of using steroids.
