COMMENTS: How does it feel, Dodger fans? The Dodgers haven't had a losing season against San Francicso since 2005, when they went 9-10. Now the 4-5 Dodgers are looking up at the 7-2 Giants, who have arguably the National League's best pitching staff.
The Dodger bats have been afire, but their pitching staff has more holes in it than a sieve dipped in acid. After dropping a series to the Pirates and eking a series win against the Diamondbacks, the Dodgers run into a potential buzzsaw in the Giants — especially with Tim Lincecum starting tomorrow.
On a happier note, both teams will wear #42 again tonight in continued observance of Jackie Robinson Day. Ah, Jackie. We'll always have Jackie.
