Dodgers 4, Giants 3: Sweep Mode, Activate

On Friday, before the Giants series got started, I wrote up a little preview, and ended on this: That’s not to underestimate the Giants; far from it. They have won two championships since 2010, obviously, and they remain a tough team. I’m just not all that worried about games that happened with different players back…

Dodgers 5, Giants 0: Clayton Kershaw Two-Hits The Giants

The Dodgers had more than their share of opportunities to survive another bad Dan Haren start tonight. They, frustratingly, could not do it. As a result, they fell to the Cardinals by a score of 3-2. First, the Haren start. He continued to look like the broken version of Dan Haren which we have become accustomed…
