(CBS) – Every Dodger in the starting lineup recorded a hit, scored a run and recorded an RBI for the first time in Los Angeles Dodgers history in a 15-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Triple-Crown threat Matt Kemp was one of three Dodgers to collect four hits, including his NL-leading 22nd homer of the season and the Dodgers scored in 7 of the 9 innings on Monday night.
Tony Gwynn Jr. stayed red hot, going 4-6 and stealing 2 bases, he now has 7 hits in the last two games and rookie Trent Oelltjen slugged his first career homer, going 4-4 against the team that originally drafted him.
