Astros 7, Dodgers 4

Mark Sweeney never came out of the video room after the game, and who can really blame him? Matt Kemp was on deck when Sweeney got caught in no-man’s land, and would have represented the tying run if he had actually come to the plate. But the fact is, the Dodgers had lost this game long before Sweeney’s ninth-inning gaffe. They went 1 for 9 w/RISP, with the only hit being Sweeney’s RBI single in the ninth, and they now are 3 for their last 55 w/RISP. Kent had an RBI double in the sixth, snapping his hitless streak at 25 ABs. The boys fall to 60-59 and remain 6 1/2 behind the D-backs.
