The Los Angeles Dodgers time spent in first place was short lived as the San Francisco Giants defeated the Miami Marlins 1-0 in a barnstormer of a game. Unfortunately, the Dodgers could not complete a sweep of Carlos Ruiz and the Philadelphia Phillies and once again fell one game back in the NL West race. However, this does not take away from the overall solid play of the Dodgers over the past month or so.

In better news, Clayton Kershaw certainly endeared himself to the newly re-minted Los Angeles Rams by sending over some expensive gifts. In less good news, Rich Hill will not make his Dodgers debut on Friday after all, as a blister continues to keep him sidelined.
