The Dodgers lost their season-high, 6th straight game, and were shutout for the fourth time in five days when they faced R.A. Dickey and the Mets on Friday night. They have been scoreless in 47 out of their last 48 innings.
Dickey is the first pitcher to get to 12 wins this season. The guy is damn good. He had a 1-hitter going into the 7th and gave up 3 hits total before coming out after the 8th. On the flip side, Harang went 5.2 innings and gave up 4 runs.
The Dodgers have lost 9 out of their last 10 games and are still 1 game out of first place behind the Giants (as they lost as well).
It’s a slump alright. Let’s see how they respond. And remember, true character and resiliance is tested when you’re down, not when you’re at the top.
