Dodgers find, truly, a new way to lose

Leading 5-4 with closer Jonathan Broxton on the mound against the Giants, stand-in manager Don Mattingly accidentally made a rookie mistake and got counted for two legal trips to the mound on one visit. That meant Broxton had to come out, porous lefty George Sherrill had to come in with no warmup time, the Giants plated three runs and the ballgame was lost. A lot more went on in this game, and Dodger Thoughts has the whole sordid story: "If you thought the collapse against the Yankees was a nightmare, if Sunday's meltdown at St. Louis brought you to your knees, those games have nothing on tonight's 7-5 loss."
