Upton busts out.
Barves 8, Dodgers 5
Scott Van Slyke out-homered Justin Upton tonight, 2-1. The problem was, Upton had about eleventy men on base when he hit his.
How else was this game disappointing? Well, Ryu was shaky. The defense was all over the place. The bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Kemp, Gonzalez, Gordon, and Ethier (who didn't start) went a combined 0 for 14.
Dodgers lose their sixth straight series opener, and I learned to not talk shit to Chipper Jones.
