The Dodgers dropped the series opener against the pesky Angels last night 3-1. The same issue from the New York Mets series reared its ugly head: the inability to hit with runners in scoring position. Last night the Dodgers were 1-for-14. While the Angels were almost as woeful going 2-for-17, that one extra hit was what netted the two runs in the eighth inning to take the lead.

So game two of the series pits Randy Wolf (2-1) going against John Lackey (1-0). This will be another game in which hits will be difficult to come by. So let's see what happens.

Aftermath

So the aftermath of the game? Arredondo's the loser, Broxton's the winner. Actually I'm the winner because I got to sit in the Vin Scully Press Box. So suck on that!!!!!!! And word up to True Blue LA for keeping my psychosis company. We must do this again tomorrow.
