8th Inning Woes

Brendan Scolari, who had the displeasure of witnessing Monday night's debacle in person, will provide the game recap.  I just wanted to point out a trend thus far in the early going of 2009.

Please be advised of the small sample size alert:

The Dodgers have taken a one, two, or three-run lead into the 8th inning of 11 different games this season.  Five times the lead has vanished.  Here is a break down:

Lead Games Blown H R BB K HR ERA WHIP
1-run 6 3 10 7 4 6 2 10.50 2.33
2-run 3 2 7 5 1 0 2 15.00 2.67
3-run 2 0 0 0 2 2 0 0.00 1.00
Totals 11 5 17 12 7 8 4 9.82 2.18

I still think it's too early to make any judgements about the bullpen, but this poor 8th inning trend needs to stop, and soon.

The Dodgers need a Billingsley-Broxton tag team to distract them on Tuesday.
