Today's game went pretty much as expected: Eric Stults lasted five innings, giving up individual runs in the second, third and fourth, and Jeff Weaver mopped up after him with three scoreless. Javier Vazquez was brilliant, striking out seven Dodgers over eight innings. The tiring Ramon Troncoso and Guillermo Mota combined to cough up five additional runs in the eighth, and we are left wondering if this is a blip or a trend.
Dodgers drop to 3-6 in August. Giants lose, Rockies win; both teams are 5.5 games back. Ready or not, San Francisco, here we come!
