Dodgers Lost, but Bonds Does Not Homer

The Dodgers certainly do not look like contenders, losing badly to the cellar-dwelling Giants. You can't even blame Bonds, as he got only one hit and no RBIs.

You can blame Bombko, who was booed pretty badly after a first inning in which he pitched through the entire order, allowing 3 runs, which was enough to lose the game. He got his act together and pitched another 4 innings with no runs, but it was too late, the damage was done, and the Dodger offense was incapable of scoring the runs needed. Twice they left the bases loaded. "Team LOB" was a stunning 13. The team had 11 hits and a paltry 2 runs.

The Bobblehead Curse did not affect Martin, who went 2/3 + 2 walks and an RBI. Furcal, Garciaparra, Kemp and Ethier each got 2 hits.

The Dodgers now must face the first-place Diamondbacks.

If the Dodgers would only learn how to use bases-loaded to their advantage, they wouldn't need to rely so heavily on ace pitchers. It's truly amazing that they leave that many men stranded like that!

I want the Dodgers to go all the way, but this week they have not played like a championship team on offense. We need more innings like the 8th in Wednesday's game against the Giants.
