May bitter blues

May has historically been a good month for the Dodgers since they moved to Los Angeles. So it might come as no surprise that the 2011 Dodgers are on pace for their West Coast worst.

They’ll need to go 4-3 over their final seven games this month just to avoid matching Los Angeles’ worst May ever.
