Dodgers Stumble To The Finish: Padres 4, Dodgers 3
The guys in the TV booth were going after Manny Ramirez, and who can blame them? 22 RBIs in the second half, and only seven home runs. In between stupid Steve Phillips cracks about Manny's hair keeping him from hitting (funny, it wasn't a problem before his suspension), you do wonder whether he's getting close to being done.
Hiroki Kuroda wasn't terrible in his return from the DL, giving up all four runs in five innings of work. The Dodgers bullpen posted zeroes the rest of the way.
And the Dodgers are still 3.5 games up on the Rocks.
