The Dodgers needed to bounce back in a big way after the latest Matt Kemp disappointment. They needed Chad Billingsley to come up big. They needed to stop hitting into so many freakin' double plays.
Bills labored for all six innings he pitched, throwing 116 pitches and allowing four earned runs. The Dodgers got thirteen hits but hit into three double plays. They've hit into eight double plays in their past three games.
For the first time ever, the Brewers sweep the Dodgers in a series (!). The idle Giants move to five games back. The Dodgers fly to Colorado tonight to start a ten-game road trip against the Rockies, Phillies and Mariners.
Gonna be a long month.
