The Dodgers squandered a good chance to gain some ground in the division and wild card races last night in a 6-4 loss against the Padres.

Here the Dodgers faced starting pitcher Jack Cassell making his first major league start, and they did nothing to make him work in the first several innings. The first batter to get a three-ball count was Russell Martin in the fourth when he hit an RBI single that scored Matt Kemp.

Granted they eventually tied the game up 3-3 in the sixth, but Rudy Seanez and Joe Beimel did a great job of handing the game over to the Padres.

This game of blown opportunities has become the recurring theme this season. They’ve had many chances after the All Star break to grab a stranglehold of the division especially in the series against the Mets and Phillies in July. But their lethargic play gave the Padres and D-Backs hope, and now the Dodgers are chasing.

That brings us to tonight with the Dodgers facing Jake Peavy on the mound. If anyone cares to take their eyes off the Idaho-USC game, this should be a good game to watch if you like great pitching. The Dodgers are sending Derek Lowe to the mound who hasn’t been very spectacular as of late. If the Dodgers can pull this off, it would be tantamount to Appalachian State’s upset over Michigan at the Big House. Well not really.
