.500, we hardly knew ye. Two days after the good vibes of SoSG Fest 2011 helped get the Dodgers back to mediocre, the Dodgers have started another descent, dropping our second straight game with tonight's loss to Arizona. Oh sure, this helps the Snakes maintain their lead over the Giants (who also won tonight).
But Ted Lilly and Matt Guerrier's shellacking in the sixth inning (giving up five runs between them), plus two more runs scored off of Mike MacDougal in the eighth, doomed the Dodgers. Matt Kemp got his 33rd HR of the year in the first inning, and Jerry Sands added an RBI single in the seventh, but that was it for the Blue.
Oh, and Eugenio Velez is still 0-for-31.
