The LA Dodgers claimed yet another victory on Thursday in what has proved to be a very solid season for them. They completely shut out the New York Mets with some stellar pitching from their Asian dynamo Hiroki Kuroda. It ended in a 2-0 shutout, their second consecutive game to go to such numbers this year.

LA manager Joe Torre, in a post game interview claimed that this was a great outing, and that he was extremely proud of his team. The LA Dodgers have had a great season so far, the western division has seen some great competition this year.

The Mets have had some rough times recently, they are currently 1-7 on their 11-game road trip, with three shutout losses. Suffering such losses surely hinders performance, as morale is trampled every time a team gets beaten. One of the stronger teams in the eastern division, the New York Mets have a great roster that is primed for greatness, they just need to break free and start winning.

LA has some great guys on their team as well, and on Thursday it came down to Matt Kemp hitting a homer and driving in both runs for the win. If they start playing just a little better, having more guys hit, they would be even higher in the standings. The pitching on LA’s side was slick, Kuroda allowed five hits, struck out four and walked one.

The Asian pitchers showed their prowess in the game on Thursday, closer Kuo, who is Taiwanese, pitched the ninth for his third save. The way the LA Dodgers play is very straightforward, there is no flashy stuff here, these guys are all business. Efficiency is very important, not wasting energy when you don’t need to can net the win in some games, if both teams are very evenly matched.  Be sure an keep up to date on all MLB action at, home of the best sports info on the net.
