If the Dodgers keep rolling over like this, they’re going to take all the fun out of it for the Giants.
As it is, the Dodgers went weakly once again, this time falling to San Francisco, 2-0, Tuesday before another sellout crowd at AT&T Park. The Dodgers’ lead over the Giants in the National League West now stands at a single game.
That’s back-to-back shutouts, and not even famed Giants-killer Clayton Kershaw is capable of winning when the Dodgers can't score a single run. And the Dodgers haven’t scored a run in their last 21 innings.
The reeling Dodgers have now lost seven of their last eight games, their offense less than a bad rumor.
On Tuesday it was Giants right-hander Ryan Vogelsong’s turn to reap the rewards of facing the struggling Dodgers.
Vogelsong (7-3) held the Dodgers scoreless for his seven innings, limiting them to seven hits and one walk. The Dodgers never really threatened him.
