The Dodgers lost 3-1 on Wednesday night at Chavez Ravine. The Diamondbacks swept the Dodgers in a 3-game series for the second time in a week. Arizona has won 13 in a row. Los Angeles has lost 11 of its last 12 games. The division lead is down to 10 1/2 games. The lead for best record in baseball is down to six games.
This is beyond frustrating and extremely annoying. Luis Avilan gave up two runs in the seventh inning of a 1-1 game. Kenta Maeda pitched five innings of 1-run ball. Cody Bellinger had an RBI. That’s basically it.
I have some sage advice for these Dodgers. Ready?
STOP FUCKING LOSING
Do you feel better? I don’t, really. Not yet.
Clayton Kershaw (1.95 ERA, 2.83 FIP) takes on Jon Gray (4.26 ERA, 3.47 FIP). First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. If they can’t beat the struggling Rockies with Kershaw on the mound, then maybe I’ll start to get a little worried. But probably not.
