“We’re 1-1 in Opening Day games this season,” Joe Torre said before the game.

That’s a small consolation considering they lie in the cellar of the NL West early in the season with a 2-4 record. While they have the pop, the pitching and defense have clearly let the Dodgers down. Their starting pitching ERA is 4.96 and bullpen ERA is 5.68, sixth worst in the Majors. In addition their fielding percentage is .964 the second worst in the Majors.

“There’s a lot of frustration,” Torre said. “You have leads, you keep fighting. We just need to get the job done, and we haven’t done a good job of that.”

“You’ve got to work on it. You’ve got to make the results better by being more consistent.”

The Dodgers at least kept their offense consistent in their 9-5 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
