How about those Dodgers?
Eight losses in nine games. Fourteen losses in the last 18.
Shutout twice in a row; three times in the last four games.
The Dodgers is dead … or are they?
Remember last season. This is the same team that lost 13 of 14 coming out of the All-Star break, then won 15 of its next 16.
Can the Dodgers do it again? The odds don’t seem likely.
They have fallen into a third-place tie with Colorado, four games behind NL West-leading Arizona. They are three games behind the second-place Padres.
“The good thing is, it's August 7 and ask anybody in here, we haven't played our best baseball all year,” losing pitcher Mark Hendrickson told Dodgers.com last night. “Hopefully, we can turn it around and pick up the morale. Who knows what we can do and what kind of streak we can get on?”
