Greinke may be down, but other starters are stepping it up: Kershaw allowed 3 ER (two walked in by his buddy Tolleson) over 7.1 IP in Game 1, Ryu allowed 3 ER (two on Beli hits) in 6 IP yesterday, and Josh Beckett pitched 8.1 innings of 1-run ball today.
Sadly, that was the winning run for the Snakes, as the Dodger bats left another five men on base today. Clearly Mark McGwire's mojo is not rubbing off on the Dodger offense, which continues to display levels of ineptitude not seen since 2003, or last year.
It doesn't get easier, as the Dodgers enter what is sure to be a tetchy three-game series with the Padres tomorrow. It's enough to make you want to slap something with a hockey stick.
