Charlie Haeger was serviceable, going seven innings and allowing three earned runs (on two homers) over only 80 pitches. Unfortunately, Chris Carpenter was serviceabler, limiting the Dodgers to two runs over eight innings. The Cardinals continue their domination of the Dodgers, who are at .500 at Dodger Stadium since their 13-0 start there. The Giants won, so the Dodgers' lead is 4.5 games over the Rockies and 5.5 over the Giants. Dammit.
