The winning-all-of-our-home-series streak is over (having dropped our second straight game to the Brewers). The Reed-Johnson-belongs-in-the-leadoff-spot discussion is (hopefully) over (Johnson went 0-for-5 with 1 K and 6 LOB). Shoot, with an 11-16 record putting us alone as the 15th-best team in the NL, 6 GB the Padres, it looks like our frickin' 2010 season is over as well.
Sax and Mrs. Sax were at the game tonight, with about 50 of our friends (attendance was really sparse; more on this in my at-game thread later). And we had to leave after the seventh inning to relieve the sitter at home. I had thought that the worst level my frustration could reach was in the bottom of the seventh, losing 4-3, seeing Russell Martin stranded at second with none out by Andre Ethier (K), Matt Kemp (K), an IBB to James Loney, and a Casey Blake ground out. But no, the Dodgers went on to yield seven more runs to the Brewers in the last two frames to lose by an embarrassing eight-run margin to another sub-.500 team.
Incompetence of this magnitude can't persist, right? Man, this is going to be a looooooong season.
