PHOENIX – The Los Angeles Dodgers went into the All-Star break on July 8 in first place in the NL West by the smallest of margins – half a game.
They got off to a hot start to the season, went on a horrible losing streak in late June in which they dropped 11 of 12 games, and by July 8 had their two best players, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, plus base-stealing ace/shortstop Dee Gordon on the disabled list.
But the Dodgers are at the top thanks to some solid pitching and the surprising contributions of a number of players not widely known. One is a big infielder from Navojoa, Sonora, Mexico – Luis Cruz.
