LOOK: Lighting postpones Dodgers vs. Giants Monday night

Tipsheet: Slumping Dodgers, Cubs add intrigue to NL race

The Diamondbacks swept them...twice.

Oh, and next up after the Giants: a series in D.C. against the Nationals, who are only 3 1/2 games back in the race for the NL's best record and home-field advantage throughout the postseason.

The Dodgers are 37-17 in the last 54 Tuesday games and 42-20 in their last 62 during game two of a series.

Notice all of that was in past tense. For so many of the fans, the Dodgers and baseball are more than just a pastime. The game ended at 4:10 a.m. Central time. In addition to not receiving production from offensive catalysts like Cody Bellinger and Chris Taylor, the Dodgers' newly-acquired Curtis Grandson has hit a brutal.085 since being acquired by the team on Aug. 19.

Maddon is a self-style motivational master, but he isn't planning another clubhouse meeting after the dreadful weekend.

Los Angeles' pitching has been a large reason for the team's recent struggles. Greinke drove in the game's first run on a bases-loaded infield single in the second inning.

Yes, it would still take a monster effort from Arizona to climb back and take over the division.

Over the same stretch, the Dodgers haven't been much better on the mound, either.

Thanks to the struggles of these two powerhouse teams, there is ample intrigue as major league baseball heads into the final three weeks of the regular season. This time, the full tarp went back on and stayed there for more than two hours.

Jarrett Parker homered leading off the second for San Francisco. In his 151.0 innings and 16-3 record this year, Kershaw has a 2.15 ERA with 182 Ks and 27 BBs. Newcomer Yu Darvish is 0-3, Rich Hill is 0-3, Alex Wood is 0-2, Hyun-Jin Ryu is 0-1, Kenta Maeda is 0-1 and Clayton Kershaw is 1-1.

Yasiel Puig gave the Dodgers the lead when he sent a hanging slider from Kyle Crick 441-feet into the left-center seats.

Over this span, Dodgers starters have a 6.54 ERA. During their winning streak, they have outscored their opponents by 100 runs, or about 5.3 runs per game.

Since, they've been scoring half that, plating 2.6 runs per game with 13 home runs in and 158 strikeouts (9.3 per contest). Still, though, the fact we even have to look to see is a bad sign. The Rays have lost four of five to fall four games behind the Twins in the chase for the second wild card. And I need to utilize the curveball. We found a way to get a win.

Things never really got started in Toronto this season.

MLB did an about face Tuesday on The Great Buster Posey Stolen Base Debate, giving the Giants' catcher credit for stealing home last Friday night against the White Sox. They had more than a few chances to win, especially given that they were tied with the Giants after five-and-a-half innings. They are threatening to stage one of the greatest collapses in baseball history.

Los Angeles had chances, getting the potential tying run aboard in the sixth and eighth, but couldn't avoid extending its worst losing streak since dropping 10 straight in June 1992. However, the problem for them is that it's been a little bit of everybody, and pinpointing anything at this point might just make matters worse. A reminder: This roster is 24-51 on the road this season.
