Don Mattingly got killed on Twitter tonight. With the Dodgers leading 3-1 in the eighth inning, he pulled Chris Capuano, who had given up consecutive bloop singles. After Ronald Belisario gave up an RBI, Mattingly kept Beli in to face Jason Heyward, who's hitting .228 against lefties. Tie game.
Then in the top of the tenth, Shane Victorino bunted with Elian Herrera on first, eventually taking the bat out of the hands of Matt Kemp, who was intentionally walked. Did Mattingly call for the bunt? Hard to tell, but sometimes you're going to lose no matter what: Donnie batted Juan Rivera for James Loney in the eleventh, and Rivera — surprise! — hit into a double play.
Overshadowed by the road misery was Capuano's great start and Andre Ethier's two-run homer in the sixth. Dodgers are 5-3 on the current road trip; Giants are killing the Padres, so hello again, second place.
