Everything that can go wrong with the Dodgers seems to be going wrong at the moment. Injuries, poor defensive play, lackluster offense, and overall terrible decision-making. All of that to say that Los Angeles is not playing well.
In fact, they’ve been one of the worst teams in baseball over the last couple of weeks. Since losing to the Padres on April 18th, the Dodgers have gone 3-9. That combines for a 3-10 record which ranks just ahead of the Tigers as the worst record in MLB.
The loss to the Brewers in extra innings Saturday is just the latest disappointing loss in a long series of struggles for the Dodgers. Worse than that, Los Angeles also might have lost Dustin May with an arm injury.
Quite literally nothing is going the Dodgers way. The starting pitching is holding down their own and getting them through ballgames. Even the bullpen is finding a way to get it done as best they can over the last 2 games.
But any time the Dodgers get a lead it seems like it falls apart in a matter of minutes. That certainly proved to be the case on Saturday when they scored 2 runs in the 11th inning. That lead was quickly wiped away by the Brewers who went on to win the game.
This stretch of awful play and bad luck won’t last forever. That’s the good news. But the Dodgers are tough to watch at the moment.
