On a night where the Giants and Rockies both lost, the Dodgers wasted a golden opportunity by flailing around with RISP (despite nine hits--as many as the Padres had for the game--the Dodgers go 0-for-8 with RISP), dropping the game 5-0 and allowing San Diego to escape with a series tie and eight game lead over the fourth-place Dodgers. James Loney goes 0-for-4 and is the final AB in two innings; Matt Kemp goes 1-for-4 and sees his average dip to .264; and AJ Ellis is batting a Garret Anderson-like .192 with his 0-for-3 performance tonight (including a GIDP).
Adding to the insult was a ninth-inning, two-run inside-the-park HR from Chris Denorfia, which Scott Podsednik played so badly out there I flashed back years back to Juan Pierre (or weeks back to Garret Anderson). This not only rubbed salt in the wound but poured boiling sulfuric acid along with it. 53 games to play, gentlemen, and eight games to make up (six if you're counting the WC). Time to step up, in 3D no less.
Is that guy in the poster trying to strangle the girl? And what's with hoodie boy with the jazz hands in the back? I am clearly not in this demo.
