4. 71. 5. 108. Final

A four run first inning couldn’t save the Los Angeles Dodgers from themselves.

Colorado found a way to strike in the top of the first inning for a run, but the Dodgers were quick to reply. In a game where they had Corey Seager back, Los Angeles rallied for four runs in their first chance on offense.

However, from that point on, the Dodgers failed to score a single run.

They managed to maintain their 4-1 lead until the fifth inning, but from there lost all control. The Rockies had a four run inning all their own, and after they went up 5-4 never looked back.

This game was the heartbreaking type of game for the Dodgers, as for a brief moment it looked like both their slump and losing streak would finally end. Instead, the misery continues and both the fans and the players are still left looking for answers.

They’ve now lost eight straight games and have been losers in 13 of their last 14. A game to start the month of September and a re-appearance by Clayton Kershaw is what it took for them to muster a 1-0 win over the Padres, but before and after that things have looked awful.

This is the exact opposite of how the Dodgers want things to go. The hot start to the season has obviously worn off, and now Los Angeles is flirting with disaster.

Dangerous territory for the Dodgers starts with the opportunity they’re presenting themselves to self-destruct. Arizona hasn’t lost often either, having a double digit winning streak before losing a game recently to the Padres.

Los Angeles has lost series to Milwaukee and San Diego while losing to Arizona twice during their current slump. They’ve fallen in the first two games versus Colorado as well, with San Francisco on the horizon.

The losing won’t stop until they figure out how to get back to the way they were playing just a few weeks ago. If not soon, this could get even uglier.
