The Fynal Out: Goodbye playoffs

Reds win! Reds win!Since you most likely have an East-Coast bias, you probably haven’t been watching the Dodgers recently.

So, we’ll sum up the team’s recent play:


In addition to losing 6 in a row and having only 1 win in their last 9 games, the Dodgers have also been shut out in 4 of their last 5 games.

This is a team that was in first Jul. 30. And now they trail the Rockies — the Rockies! — in the N.L. West. Unlike most people, we think the Diamondbacks will hold off L.A. and win the division.

But, cheer up L.A. fans (hello? L.A. fans, you there?), you’ve always got the Galaxy.

Dodgers 0, Reds 1: The return of Aaron Harang was all Cincinnati could have asked for, as the pitcher went 8 innings and gave up only 4 hits. Ken Griffey Jr. drove in the only run with an RBI single in the third.

Brewers 4, Rockies 19: Speaking of Colorado, the Rockies swept the Brewers in style, pounding out 11 runs on 12 hits against Milwaukee’s Yovani Gallardo. When it was all said and done, the Rocks had 23 hits, 4 by Garrett Atkins (4-for-4), who had 6 RBI.

Indians 4, White Sox 6 (F/13): With the Tigers dropping another game (this one to Tampa Bay), Cleveland looked to stretch its lead in the A.L. Central. Unfortunately, Juan Uribe had other plans and after A.J. Pierzynski tied the game with a solo shot in the 12th, Uribe’s 2-run shot in the 13th made up for his earlier fielding error.
