We'll let Tony Jackson do the talking:
Dodgers were never going to beat a pitcher like Halladay with this offense. And it gets no easier. The next three days? El Duque, John Maine and Jorge Sosa. Those three have a combined record of 15-5, and not one of them has an ERA higher than 2.78. Oh, and the Mets have the best record in the N.L. ... Dodgers fall to 35-28, but they stay 1 1/2 back after Seattle completed its three-game sweep of the Pods. National League is a joke. That much becomes clear every time interleague play happens.
