Another Blown Lead, Another Loss

Another Blown Lead, Another Loss

Final Score: Rockies 5, Dodgers 3

  • Gritty performance by Billingsley, though he was done in by homers. The 5 walks really came back to bite him too, as two of them came into score. Kuo did a great job of striking out Helton in the 8th.
  • If James Loney never plays another game outside of Coors I think he’d be a happy man. 4 for 4, a triple short of the cycle. 3 of his 6 home runs this season have come in Colorado.
  • Matt Kemp also had a nice day, collecting his 25th double and a single. His average is up to .322, third in the NL.
  • The rest of the offense went 2 for 26. The team was 1 for 7 with RISP and left 6 runners on base. I honestly expected more today.

Now it’s off to St Louis where Nathan Eovaldi will go up against Chris Carpenter. Eovaldi was a tough luck loser last time out, giving up just 2 runs in 6 innings. Carpenter last pitched against the Dodgers on April 17 and worked 7 scoreless innings, tho ended up with a no decision in the loss. Game time is 5:15pm Pacific.

    We should trade Loney to the Rockies. It is the only place he seems to live up to his offensive potential.

  2. Roger Dodger says:

    Have not checked the figures, but who is doing better since the All-Star break: Loney or Ethier???

    Other than Kershaw and his personal quest for 20 wins . . . the entire team is terrible.

    Dodgers now in last place again. S.D. is hot.
