Braves 3, Dodgers 2: No Uribe, no victory

This is the first time Juan Uribe hasn’t been a Dodger since before the 2011 season. They lost tonight without Uribe in the organization. Coincidence??? (yes) While Uribe didn’t have much involvement in the outcome offensively (0-for-3, walk, two strikeouts, a nice ovation from the crowd), he knocked down a sure A.J. Ellis double play…

Dodgers 6, Braves 3: Dre Day

Solo shots by Andre Ethier and Jimmy Rollins, with a two-run bomb by Alex Guerrero in between, gave the Dodgers a four-run lead in the eighth inning and broke a 2-2 tie. That’s not to underplay the other side of it though, with Brett Anderson turning it yet another quality start, going seven innings and…


Padres 11, Dodgers 3: At Least The Game Ended

Much of the early damage came thanks to…

Giants 4, Dodgers 0: Everything is terrible

Also being like 1-for-500 with RISP…


Giants 2, Dodgers 0: One of ‘those’ games

These Dodger-Giant games are the worst. It’s probably a blessing in disguise they didn’t meet in last year’s NLCS. There would have been some folks (including yours truly) who wouldn’t have survived it. This was a pretty lackluster game. The Giants scored their first run in the most Giant of ways. After two were out,…
