Let’s all hope that yesterday was the last time the Dodgers aren’t atop the standings for the rest of the year. It could be for one day or it could be for the entire season, but it’s nice to see them where they belong.
Here’s today’s lineup:
Furcal, SS (not a bad season debut)
Martin, C (modest five-game hitting streak)
Kent, 2B (hit his first big league homer 15 years ago today)
Gonzalez, LF (ranks among early NL leaders in five categories)
Clark, CF (Don’t worry, Pierre’s consecutive game streak is not a "start" streak)
Ethier, RF (be on the lookout for his email to Buster Olney tomorrow on ESPN.com)
