Last night, the Dodgers gained a game in the race to catch the Diamondbacks in the NL West. It came from an important decision from the front office to make a trade for veteran pitcher Ricky Nolasco. Nolasco’s record on the year has looked inconsistent, but his ERA of barely above three, shows that he has been pitching above average this season. His run support was lacking on a poor Marlins team. The trade that sent him to LA, gave him a sense of being revived at the right time. He came out and only allowed four hits, while getting two himself, sparking a 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

That type of strong play gives the Dodgers assurance that they made the right decision, and can spark a clubhouse overall. Look for the Dodgers to carry yesterday’s momentum into tonight as they try to take another win on the road.
