Dodgers beat Padres 4-1, 6th inning sloppy, no sweeping

Well the Padres failed to sweep the Dodgers and instead split the two game series.  They had their opportunities in the 4th and 5th inning but just couldn't bring in the runs. Left a total of 8 men on base in the game.

Buddy Black chose not to have David Eckstein bunt runners on 1st and 2nd over and instead let him fly out.  Adrian Gonzalez and Yorvit Torrealba struck out. Disappointing.

The wheels really came off in the 6th inning with the Dodgers scoring 3.  Errors, wild pitches, missed cutoffs and hits. It was sloppy like Drama at a Nationals' game.

Matt Stairs is playing like he's older than Enberg..

Padres lose.
