Blanked. By The Pirates: Pirates 2, Dodgers 0

There's almost no point in recapping this; the Dodgers stank. It didn't help that Matt Kemp misplayed Ryan Doumit's ball into a triple. It's their fifth straight loss.

The last time they were blanked by the Pirates at home was an 8-0 embarrassment on September 5, 2000, putting the Dodgers at 73-66, nine games back of the Giants; the team never led the division after April 23, getting as far back as 13 games by September 14 following a 5-4 loss to the Rockies.

This team doesn't look as bad as the 2000 squad, but saying that is conditional on a lot of other things going right, i.e. the injured starters return to the lineup, the pitchers discover competence, and the offense stops being offensive.

It's getting tough to watch.

Torre needs to light a fire under these guys butts.
Not playing GA, something only Torre controls, would be a nice start. And using Broxton more than once in a blue moon can only help as well.
