Chris Snyder’s leadoff homer in the eighth proved the difference. Doug Davis stuffed the Dodgers on three hits over eight innings, and they didn’t come close to getting a hit off Jose Valverde in the ninth. Dodgers fall to 58-51 an two games behind the Snakes in the standings and are now closer to the fourth-place Rockies (3 1/2 back) than to the D-backs. It’s getting late, folks. Fifty-three games left to turn this around, and right now, the Dodgers give no indication that they are about to do so. See you tomorrow.
