The boys hung four on Paul Byrd before he even recorded an out, but they would get no more. Thanks to the bullpen, it stood up. Dodgers improve to 2-7 in interleague games this season with six more to go. They’re 35-40 overall, and they actually gained a game in the standings today, moving within 3 1/2 of the Snakes, who lost at Minny. … By the way, I’m interested in hearing whether anyone agrees with me on this, but IMHO, there is simply too much artificial noise at Dodger Stadium. Everything that happens on the field, whether it’s a strikeout by the opposing team, a walk by a Dodgers batter, a stolen base by Juan Pierre, Matt Kemp NOT striking out, there has to be some sort of loud sound effect played over the PA. And if nothing happens for a while, they have to play some sound effect anyway, like that super-annoying EV-RY-BOD-Y-CLAP-YOUR-HANDS chant. This is a knowledgeable fan base in Los Angeles, They know when to cheer, they know when to clap their hands, and they know when the Dodgers do something good.
