Where Did Your Heart Go? Mine evaporated in the seventh inning, when Clayton Kershaw, cruising through six scoreless innings until then, somehow went off the rails and gave up three runs before getting an out. What was a 2-0 lead off the bat of Juan Uribe became a 3-2 deficit. Maybe that was Kershaw's way of challenging the offense (laden with Carl Crawford, Hanley Ramirez, and Adrian Gonzalez out of the starting lineup) to step up?
Unfortunately, it didn't. Hunter Pence added a solo shot for the bad guys, and even though the Dodgers had first and second with none out in the ninth, Yasiel Puig Kd, Nick Punto had a fielder's choice, and Adrian Gonzalez hit a shot that ricocheted off Sergio Romo's foot to third, for the third out at first base. Give A-Gon credit for trying to hit Romo. Oh, well.
In good news, however, the Rockies opened up a can of whupass on the Diamondbacks in Arizona, breaking a 2-2 tie into a 7-2 lead, and holding on for the 7-5 victory. This drops the Dodgers' magic number to 4. I mean, it wasn't Everything She Wants. But I'll take it.
