The Dodgers congratulate each other after sweeping the Nationals on Sunday.

The Dodgers congratulate each other after sweeping the Nationals on Sunday.

Wow! Other than Kemp hurting his ankle in the 9-2 finale of our series in Washington, this weekend was just about the best way the Dodgers could possibly have started the season’s second half.

The Bison went 3-4 with a homer, 3 RBIs and a walk in his return from the D.L. just in time to injure himself again. Hopefully, the ankle turn wasn’t anything serious. He might get the reputation for being made of glass.

A day after edging out the Nats, 3-1, in 10 innings on Saturday, the Blue Crew completed the sweep behind fantastic pitching by our ace, Clayton Kershaw, and super power from Kemp and Hanley Ramirez, who also went long and had 3 RBIs.

The Dodgers even had a share of 1st place for a little while, until the D’bags eked out a 3-1 win to stop the Giants from sweeping them in San Francisco. So they still have a ½-game lead over the Dodgers, who are now 50-47. Can you believe it? Three games over .500!

Keep it up, guys!
