The Dodgers have dropped their last four outings including a 7-5 loss to the Colorado Rockies before this sweep by the Reds. I don’t think that they will revert back the team they were in the first half of the season, but they still hold the best record since the All-Star break at 36-12.
Next up on the schedule for the Dodgers is the division rival Arizona Diamondbacks, which the team will look to get back to their winning ways and not allow any hope at all for the Diamondbacks to even think they may have a chance of catching big blue, who are currently have an eleven game lead even after four straight losses.
On the mound for the Dodgers will be the hot newly acquired Ricky Nolasco who is at 12-9 on the season with a 3.26 ERA.
The Reds on the other hand are heating up themselves and holding on to the final spot of the wildcard playoff, as they open up a three game series with the Chicago Cubs coming into Great American Ball Park starting on Monday night.
