The boys lost this one in the bottom of the fourth, when they got runners to second and third with one out and left them there when Juan Pierre and Matt Kemp struck out in succession. Although they still led 3-1 at that point, there was a sense of impending doom after that, and it held true. The very shaky Jonathan Broxton imploded again in the ninth, hitting Matt Holliday to begin the inning, and it led to what hitting a batter to begin an inning almost always does. The Dodgers committed four errors in a game for the first time in more than three years, and it is worth noting that all four of them were committed by catcher Danny Ardoin, third baseman Russell Martin and first baseman Casey Blake — all three of whom were part of an elaborate musical chairs in the starting lineup that all resulted from manager Joe Torre wanting to sit James Loney because Loney was 1 for 15 against Jeff Francis. This is one instance where Torre might have outsmarted himself. … Dodgers fall to 64-62 and are now two games behind the Snakes, the biggest deficit they have faced in two weeks. It all lends an undeniable touch of urgency to tomorrow’s series and homestand finale, especially given that the upcoming, 10-game trip begins with a dicey, four-game series in Philly.
