Dodgers Freefall Continues With 7-0 Loss To Astros

"Left hand red? You've got to be kidding me."

Rubby De La Rosa strayed from the pattern tonight. After struggling early in each of his first two starts before settling down for the win, the rookie faced one over the minimum through four innings tonight, but then ran into a wall in the fifth, allowing five runs (though better defense may have helped him). Not that it mattered much anyway, as the Dodgers didn't score, falling again to the Astros 7-0.

So much for home cooking. The Dodgers are 0-5 to start their 12-game homestand, and have lost six straight home games overall. The last time the Dodgers lost six straight home games was 2007.

Here's a reason to connect with pops tomorrow on Fathers Day. You can ask him what it was like to watch a better team than this mess, as no Los Angeles Dodger team has been worse than the current 31-41 after 72 games.

Worst LA Dodgers Records After 72 Games
Year W-L Run Diff. Year End

In injury news, Rod Barajas sprained his right ankle and left the game in the top of the fifth. Barajas is listed as day-to-day, but A.J. Ellis was pulled during the game in Triple A, so read into that what you will.

Hiroki Kuroda tries to avoid another sweep on Sunday, against Bud Norris.

WP - Wandy Rodriguez (5-3): 6 IP, 7 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts

LP - Rubby De La Rosa (3-1): 4 2/3 IP, 6 hits, 5 runs, 3 walks, 6 strikeouts
