Table for three, anyone?

On April 12, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and Clayton Kershaw on the mound in Arizona, but they lost.

On April 24, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a ninth-inning lead in New York, but they lost.

On April 27, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a seventh-inning lead against Milwaukee, but they lost.

On May 13, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and A.J. Ellis tripled, but they got plastered.

On May 17, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a sixth-inning lead in Atlanta, but they lost.

On May 29, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and two homers in the ninth inning against the Angels’ closer, but they lost.

On June 5, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and Kershaw on the mound against San Diego, but they lost.

On June 8, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and … you get the idea.

Eight straight times the Dodgers have failed to win three in a row.  What happens tonight?

Giants at Dodgers, 7:10 p.m.

    Well we are now 1 game under .500 for the season against the Padres….Let’s sweep the gnats to get to the same status

      It’s good to sweep this series mostly because the Dodgers just need wins. Over anybody. At anytime.

    Blast it! I’m blockaded from this game on ESPN2. Why? The Dodgers (and every other West Coast team) claim Hawai’i as their territory, but it’s only recently (within the last couple of years, I think) that ESPN has not broadcast Dodgers games into this state.

    If Belli can turn around, maybe that table for three is available . . . still, the other year-long bugaboo is there: sleeping offense.

    Kemp and SVS, just like yesterday, 1 hit for each , both doubles. Incredibly, they each scored on separate Nick Buss triples. Kemp 1 for 3 with a walk, 2 runs scored, 1 SB. SVS 1 for 4, 1 run scored. They both struck out once. Game is 9-9 bottom of 9th. Former SFG Jonathan Sanchez started in his first game for Alb. went 3 innings 66 pitches (in honor of Puig?) gave up 6 runs.

    Are we tempting everything by going further with Belli? Isn’t this like a full-body exam of a gift horse?

      He’s better with no inherited runners

        He shut ‘em down in the 7th . . . AND got this one . . . maybe Belli is pulling a Uribear!

          A Bellibear?

    Evening all… Just back from a thing and catching up on the game… I may be over reacting slightly, but I feel that this series is the one that either pushes the Blue forward to deflates the season. If not this one, certainly all the games against the NL West before the All-Star break. Thoughts?

    • Anonymous

      I agree with the timing — 12 games under .500 basically means you’re not beating anyone . . . and they need to start beating SOMEone . . . LOTS of someones! (And it doesn’t hurt if it’s those ahead in the standings.)

    Okay, David — I’d settle for a Puig sac fly, single . . . anything for the RBI. (I’m not picky — even a run without an RBI.)

      You mean an “interesting” game. :)

      • http://farinella.com/ David Farinella

        Yes, this has become “interesting.”

      • http://farinella.com/ David Farinella

        Plus, I live in the Bay Area and so I’d love to shove this “Interesting” happening in the face of about 25 or so friends. That sounds more aggressive than I feel, but you understand.

    That 8th inning brought something I hadn’t felt in a long time — optimism about the upcoming hitters: Puig, Adrian, Hanley, even Andre.

      I felt the same way. Actually thought,”Okay, we got this.” Then I thought “What?!”
