With three more errors in today's game, the Dodgers pulled back into a tie for first place with the Washington Nationals with 26 errors on the season. Today's Dodger mistakes came at the slippery hands of Justin Turner (2, throw), Hyun-Jin Ryu (1, fielding a bunt with his glove rather than his hand), and Matt Kemp (3, fielding). With a lot of hard work and continued focus on lack of fundamentals (can't blame the hitting coach for this one!), I'm sure Don Mattingly will have the team back in first place in no time.
Oh, and there was a game! Hyun-Jin Ryu used about 84 pitches to get through the first two innings, so when the Rockies broke through in the second with two runs and then added a three-run homer in the sixth to put the Dodgers down 6-1, it was all over. The Dodgers scratched together eight hits, most of which seemed to come with two out, and ended the game 2-for-6 with RISP (and one run to show for it, by the way). Dee Gordon stole his 13th base of the season but really, who gives a shit when you drop two of three to the Rockies at home.
If there's any consolation, it's that now, 26 games (16%) into the season, Dodger fans still don't have the opportunity to watch this poison. Take a day off, Dodgers; let's see if we can warm up the bats any when we get to our next series in 39-degree Minnesota (starting Tuesday).
