The yolk is indeed on us, most particularly all those fans who humped it out to the Stadium for a midday game and saw us turn back not only the clock (with our uniforms) but also our scoring (with our bats). Dee Gordon and Matt Kemp had multi-hit games, but the slumping Andre Ethier went 1-for-3 with 3 LOB, Marcus Thames went 0-for-3 with 4 LOB, and James Loney topped them all with an 0-for-4, 5 LOB performance. Yahtzee!
Meanwhile, Chad Billingsley couldn't even record his thirteenth out, lasting only four innings with 7 ER and 9 H. Scott Rolen crushed Bills' shell, going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI, and former Giant Fred Lewis added 2 RBI on a 2-for-3 day. So we start our most comfortable homestand of the year being uncomfortably numb, swept by the Reds at home for the first time since 2004.
Take a nice day off from a good union job tomorrow, Dodgers. You've earned it.
