There were some bright spots today. And most days this year with the Dodgers, isn’t that all we can look for?
Matt Kemp singled, doubled and homered. Dioner Navarro went 2 for 4 and made a run-saving tag at the plate on a potential wild pitch. Javy Guerra came right back from his Tuesday save with a shutout inning.

J.R. Towles, who had the game-winning hit and went 3 for 4, had been in an 0-for-32 slump entering the game.
