No sport has a better sense of humor than baseball.
Five days ago, all the commentators were talking about how the Dodgers’ offense had been historically good through the first six weeks of the season. They were hitting homers and scoring runs at an unfathomable pace.
Then of course the Dodgers went cold, scoring a grand total of zero runs in 35 innings stretching from Sunday to tonight. That tied a Los Angeles Dodgers record for longest scoring drought.
So in about 72 hours, Dodger fans went from “Our offense can pound any team into submission” to “I have no idea how we’re going to score a run in this game.”
Luckily the Dodgers had Zack Greinke and Kenley Jansen on the mound tonight, and two runs were enough to beat San Diego 2-1. Rookie Joc Pederson hit the go-ahead home run in the bottom of the eighth inning.
