Getting ugly

The Dodgers might have to turn their attention at the trading deadline to acquiring a pitcher, especially now that they are no longer so desperate for another bat. Kuo clearly isn’t going to last in the rotation, but the club is running out of alternatives, unless Ned and Grady want to give D.J. Houlton a shot. Kuo gave up seven runs (six earned) in 3 1/3 tonight, in a critical game for the Dodgers. Dodgers might get back into this one — they have runners on the corners after Nomar finally got a hit and Loney get yet another one — but they can’t keep letting Kuo put them in five-run holes like this. Padres 7, Dodgers 2, bottom 4
