The Dodgers almost blew a 5-run lead in the bottom of the ninth inning today at Coors Field.
Closer Jon Broxton really struggled, but eventually got No. 1 Dodger Killer Brad Hawpe to ground out to the end the game.
I think manager Joe Torre, if he had to do it over again, would have started the inning with Brox rather than bring him in with runners on base.
Now it’s on to Chicago, where I have a sneaking suspicion the Dodgers will get swept by the Cubs. I think it’s gonna be a long four days for the Dodgers.
