The Dodgers put a new spin on Frank Sinatra riding high in April and shot down in May. They were rolling on Monday and staggering on Thursday.
Just in time to head to San Francisco for a three-game series. That’s called bad timing.
The Dodgers, such a hot team a moment ago, suffered their third consecutive tough defeat to the Cardinals, falling, 7-4, on Thursday afternoon in St. Louis.
That sends them to the Bay Area trailing the Giants in the National League West by three games. Last time they were in San Francisco, they failed to score a single run in three games.
Thursday the Dodgers overcame a 2-0 deficit by scoring four times in the fifth on five consecutive singles, but left-hander Chris Capuano could not make it hold up.
