Dodgers 7, Diamondbacks 0 - Lowe Expectations

Record: 71-69. Pace: 82-80. Change on last season: -6
Magic number: 22. Playoff odds: TBA

Nothing fancy here, folks. I'm sure Jim's grateful to not have to do the recap tonight, as Lowe pitched masterfully and the Diamondbacks put up a completely feeble effort to try and stop him. The Fangraph sums it up better than I could.

Master of his Domain: Chris Young, +5.8%
God-Emperor of Suck: Dan Haren, -25.9%

Two hits. Two walks. Chris Young, being responsible for two of those four base runners, is the master of what little domain we have left. Dan Haren turned out another disappointing start, although he didn't last long enough to continue his string of seven hits or more in a start. I guess that's good.

No other Diamondback was more than 1 percent to the positive. Conor Jackson was second with 0.6 percent. That also does a good job of summing things up.

An unsurprisingly subdued (and off-topic) Gameday Thread. Present there were: kishi, njjohn, snakecharmer, Jim McLennan, foulpole, DbacksSkins, azwebber17, Diamondhacks, Shums, TwinnerA, Andrew, mrssoco, Scrbl, AZWILDCATS, unnamedDBacksfan, Gravity, 4 Corners Fan and Turambar.

Webb/Billingsley tomorrow. Maybe things will improve. Maybe we'll be in second place. Time will tell.
