The Dodgers on Saturday look to avoid something they haven't done in 20 years. Back in 1992, the season they lost 99 games, the Dodgers lost six straight games, scoring three runs or less in each game.

In 1992, the Dodgers were shutout in four of the six games and scored five total runs. This year's squad hasn't been that anemic during their dry spell, with 11 runs during their five-game and hitting .276/.333/.347. But hitting .213 (10-for-47) with runners in scoring position will do the trick, especially when three of the 10 hits didn't drive in runs.

The Dodger offense faces Juan Nicasio today, a pitcher who has allowed just three runs in 13 innings in two starts against the Dodgers this season. Both games were against Aaron Harang, who starts again today for the Dodgers.

Nicasio and the Rockies beat the Dodgers 6-2 at Coors Field on April 30, while the Dodgers won 2-1on April 12 at Dodger Stadium behind Harang giving up one run in eight innings.
