Slumping Dodgers, Cubs add intrigue to NL race — Tipsheet

Slumping Dodgers, Cubs add intrigue to NL race — Tipsheet

Reliever Jeremy Affeldt seems to be thinking along these lines. After the season-opening series in Los Angeles, the next four trips are three-city swings.

The 40-year-old Vogelsong was drafted by the Giants in the fifth round of the 1998 amateur draft and made his major league debut in their waterfront ballpark on Sept. 2, 2000, finishing his 12-year career 61-75 with a 4.81 ERA while pitching two stints each for San Francisco and Pittsburgh.

Nothing has changed in Toronto.

Clearly the Dodgers remained uninspired despite Lasorda's gesture. One, the Cleveland Indians had won 18 straight ballgames entering Monday, essentially delivering on the promise created last fall.

Potential downside: The lost opportunity against Northern Colorado and a shorter week of practice after the storm leaves the Gators less than ready for their SEC debut. He is now one shy of tying the single-season club record.

What has followed that game has been a cataclysmic pitfall in the eyes of many Angeleno sports fans. Los Angeles's lead over the Nationals for the best record in the NL - and home-field advantage in the National League Championship Series - is in much greater jeopardy.

"We're making it a little closer than we had anticipated", said Roberts, who admitted peeking at the out-of-town scores.

Another run would come from a Justin Turner double in the 6th, and from a struggling Dodgers offense, this should have been more than enough to win a ball game.

Those Red Sox were 7-20 in September. Their magic number to clinch the division dropped to 10.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig is in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants on Monday.

Through their win on Aug. 25 against Milwaukee, the Dodgers were 91-36 and on pace to achieve the most wins in a season in the history of the game.

But Darvish has been ordinary and sometimes lousy, lacking command. Seager, Bellinger and Taylor have all started to struggle at the plate while Curtis Granderson stopped hitting almost exactly when he was acquired via trade. "I thought that we were going to win that game".

Posey collected two hits and two RBIs, and Pence scored twice for the Giants (57-89). They face Mike Trout next year, but only on the road.

There is some good news for baseball fans in all of this.

The Dodgers are in the midst of a historically bad run. Morrow has been one of the team's best surprises all year, and I think we'll see the front office reward him for his performance.

The Dodgers batted around in the fourth inning, scoring four times for a 4-4 tie.

The bizarre game didn't start until 35 minutes after the original scheduled first pitch, but after one batter, the game was delayed again as heavy rain, thunder, and lighting surrounded the Bay Area. Other than these guys the only guy I see the Dodgers looking at is Brandon Morrow unless Chase Utley decides he wants to play for free.

The Dodgers had multiple names floating in the MVP race, but the meat of their order has struggled.

Mother Nature put on a show far more impressive than any the Dodgers have put on lately. San Francisco announced before the game that it would sign RHP Ryan Vogelsong to a one-day contract Sunday and allow him to retire a Giant during a pregame ceremony. "He's doing stuff that elite pitchers do".
