"Hit 'em where they ain't," Wee Willie Keeler said, and the Dodgers didn't do exactly that. All night their bats hit the ball — straight to the Rangers' defense. Hard grounders, line drives, fly balls, you name it: The Rangers seemed perfectly positioned with stellar defense every time.
The Dodger offense ended up with four strikeouts, four walks and 11 left on base. Hiroki Kuroda was charged with five runs over 5 1/3 innings, striking out six in an otherwise forgettable game. The Dodgers' interleague road misery continues — for now. Back at 'em tomorrow!
