Odd eighth doesn’t even score for Dodgers

Despite an eighth inning that featured three pinch-hit walks and two Miami ejections, the Dodgers were unable to rally from their 2-0 deficit tonight and lost their third straight game to the Marlins.

It’s the first shutout and first three-game losing streak for Los Angeles, which remains in first place in the National League West, though the lead has shrunk to half a game over San Francisco, which has won three in a row.

Kenta Maeda will face Jose Fernandez in the series finale Thursday. That game will be hard-pressed to have an inning stranger than this one …

I was keeping score of all the changes of PHs and relief pitchers that inning and hardly watch the action until Pederson took those two close pitchers for balls. All I can say is I don’t blame the Marlins for getting mad, at that point.
It almost seems line Ump Todd Tichenor was trying to help the Dodgers. But things were so bad last night that it still didn’t help.

Got the feeling that the ump wasn’t too happy with Phelps dallying on the mound (I know I wasn’t).
