The Dodgers had never lost a game this season when they scored four or more runs prior to this week. Yimi Garcia had never blown a save, either. Both things have happened twice now and you almost wonder if the world is about to end.

We can’t promise the sun is going to come out tomorrow; it’s supposed to be cloudy in Southern California again. But the sun will come out eventually, and Kenley Jansen will come off the disabled list, possibly before the next time you see the sun. The Dodgers hadn’t decided whether or not that will happen Friday or Saturday when we spoke to Don Mattingly after the game.

Hector Olivera is coming, too. Friday could be a busy day.

In the meantime, you can read about this game and about what might or might not have led to Pedro Baez’s strained pectoral muscle.

The box score is here. The photo gallery is here.
