And right about now (funk soul brother), this losing thing is getting really, really old. Hyun-Jin Ryu gave up a two-run HR to Paul Goldschmidt in the first inning, and goes another seven innings without giving up another run (8.0 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 1 BB and 4 Ks).
And yet, the Dodgers can only muster three hits after the first inning, scoring our only run through a bases-loaded Yasiel Puig walk. Not that we didn't have our chances: a ninth-inning rally starting with two straight singles (Michael Young, Skip Schumaker) was followed by a Juan Uribe bunt (wtf?) attempt (comebacker that, instead of advancing both runners, forced Young at third), followed by a weak Nick Buss grounder to first, and then a Matt Kemp PH K to end the game.
The Dodgers went 0-for-8 with RISP and had 8 LOB (AJ Ellis, 0-for-3, and Adrian Gonzalez, 0-for-4, both had 5 LOB). The Diamondbacks didn't have any RISP, and left 1.
And yet, the Diamondbacks won.
Yesterday, and days before, Sun is cold and rain is hard. I know; been that way for all my time.
