The Dodgers lost three straight games in Colorado by one run, and Scott Alexander just blew a one-run lead by allowing four runs in the ninth. He's on track to be the fourth different Dodgers reliever to be tagged with a loss in four days. Kenley Jansen probably won't pitch this month, and the Dodgers have nobody they trust to replace him in the ninth. This is a major problem.

Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt believes Clayton Kershaw's competitiveness will keep him at the top of his profession even as his stuff erodes, and nights like these are a perfect example. Bullpen's a mess, team's reeling, Madison Bumgarner is on the other side, and Kershaw has delivered 8 innings of one-run ball, plus an RBI double, in a 2-1 lead over the division-rival Giants. 4 hits, 0 walks, 9 strikeouts, 110 pitches. Vintage.
