Sorry about last night

There was some computer glitch that wouldn’t allow me onto the web site last night, so no blogging. Looks like it is all fixed now, though, so back to normal — even though there isn’t a lot of news for this early in the day. I do have this little tidbit, though, from the Dodgers’ game notes: In the 12 games since the All-Star break, the Dodgers led the N.L. in hits (147) while ranking second in runs (76), RBI (72), average (.324) and on-base percentage (.377), with the Phillies leading in all those categories. The Dodgers are tied for first with four triples and tied for second with 25 doubles, while ranking third in slugging percentage (.485). Not that any of that helped them last night, when they fell back into their old, freeswinging habits against Jason Jennings, who hadn’t beaten an N.L. club all year. The Dodgers made five outs in five pitches over one stretch between the third and fourth innings. That can’t continue if they hope to have success the rest of the way.
