I will not be rehashing the characteristic details of the Dodgers’ run-scoring difficulties today.

    On 6/4/88, Orel Hershiser threw 153 pitches in this CG loss. Gave up game-winning HR on 147th pitch. http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/LAN/LAN198806040.shtml

    I am watching Dark Shadows at this moment. The Collins family is cursed with vampires and ghosts. The Dodgers are cursed with runners left on base. I wish I had some idea how to break the dark, dark magic.

    With five guys producing (six if you have Uribe in the lineup!) we should be scoring more than this. Kemp to 7th?
