Look, one can blame Andre Ethier, who grounded into an inning-ending double play in the eighth with the bases loaded and one out (Giants manager Bruce Bochy IBBd Matt Kemp and brought in Javy Lopez to foil Ethier). Ethier (1-for-4, 5 LOB) did GIDP twice tonight, to be fair.
But the real downer was Juan "Urine" Uribe, who came up in the seventh with men on first and second and no one out and a rally beginning (what else would you call consecutive leadoff singles from Juan Rivera and James Loney, for pete's sake). And Urine sacrifice bunted into a double play (Rivera out at third, Urine out at first). Unbelievable. How does one bunt into a first-and-third DP? Is that even possible? Apparently, so. Oh, and Uribe came up as the last batter in the ninth and grounded to short to end his 0-for-4 disastrous night. Urine problems, indeed.
The score was 2-1 after two innings but didn't progress from there, thanks to settling down from loss-earning Clayton Kershaw (8.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 Ks, but one bad two-run HR) as well as the Giants' win-earning Ryan Vogelsong (7.1 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 K). Dodgers go to the rubber match tomorrow. Hopefully, Jerry Hairston has healed.
