In Zimmer's situation, his team was in the midst of an historic 17-game winning streak and is battling the Astros for the best record in the league. He was hit hard his last start, allowing four earned runs on six hits with seven strikeouts and three walks over 3 2/3 innings in a 9-1 home loss to the Rockies. Instead, pitching for the second time since a five-week absence caused by his strained back, Kershaw yielded four runs and could not complete the fourth inning against Colorado. They tried to fight the current, but it was too strong. Ty Blach stepped in with one out in the first.
Jay is a local and like me, he pulled an audible after the rain delay and booked it to the ballpark. Rookie Alex Verdugo belted his first career homer, but the Dodgers went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position and leadoff hitter Chris Taylor went 0-for-5 for the second straight game. This season, Kershaw is 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in 20 innings (3 starts) against the Giants. A 15-game lead on Aug. 1 for Chicago had dwindled to 1 1/2 games with 10 games to play, but the White Sox snapped out of their 25-28 lethargy to win eight of their last 10 games.
Arizona is one of three teams the Dodgers have a losing record against this year at 8-11. It is still just the fifth inning. Please don't let the Dodgers be like the government.

Kershaw (17-3) tossed six innings and tied Milwaukee's Zach Davies for the major league lead in wins.
Jansen struck out Buster Posey and Nick Hundley, ending the late threat. They have the division title to fall back on. It hasn't always been our way all the time. Ross Stripling gave up a run in the seventh, but Justin Turner added some insurance with an RBI double in the eighth. And I need to utilize the curveball. Irma didn't come and go - it ravaged, with families of Florida players and coaches and countless Gators supporters surely among those feeling the brunt. As Kershaw ripped a liner into left field, outfielder Austin Slater lost track of the baseball in the lights.
The Dodgers are in the midst of a historically bad run.
Joe Montana threw out the opening pitch before the Giants faced the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

The Giants came back the following day and, playing their third doubleheader in four days, swept the Pirates.
