Dodgers' 16-1 rout is no ordinary loss

van-slyke-espn-grab.jpgThe Dodgers ended their brief 6-game winning streak with a flourish of a kind Friday night — they fell 16-1 to the Phillies in the most lopsided home loss ever at Dodger Stadium. The last time the Dodgers lost at home like this, they played in Brooklyn. That day they lost 19-2 to the New York Giants at Ebbets Field.

In this one, the Dodgers fell behind 3-0 after an inning and 6-0 after two. Every pitcher gave up a run except infielder Skip Schumaker, who pitched the ninth inning so that no real pitcher would have to use his arm. The starting pitcher, Chris Capuano, left in the fourth down 7-0. Yasiel Puig got another hit, a liner to the fence in right field that was hit so hard he could only get a single out of it.
