After scoring just six runs in their three-game series sweep at the hands of San Francisco, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly summed up the offense like so:

"When your big guys don't hit, that's the way it goes," he said.

Both Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier went 2-for-12 against the Giants, each with a double. Ethier had both of his hits Wednesday, which was remarkable considering that he had a nasty blister that ruptured on his right hand.

"These guys are asking you how you feel body-wise, and I feel great, I feel good except I have a huge hole in my hand that hurts," Ethier told Alex Angert of "The frustrating part is being good physically and have something like this."
