C’mon now! Although it seemed like they could, you knew the Dodgers wouldn’t just keep winning forever, right?

The Boys in Blue lost to the Phillies, 3-2, after shutting them out in the first two games of the series, 4-0 and 5-0.

It ain’t the end of the world, just the end of a phenomenal 10-game winning streak that’s part of a 42-9 record since June 22. Let’s stay positive, guys!

2013 Dodgers programI will let my appropriation of Willard Mullin’s classic cover to the Dodgers Year Book of 1955 (World Series, anyone?) speak for me today, after two more victories (4-2 on Tuesday and 5-4 in 12 innings last night) and another sweep.

Except for one thing! Way to go, Captain Clutch!

Andre Ethier pinches in a two-run homer in the ninth to tie the game. Adrian Gonzalez would go on to single in Yasiel "Don't Make Me Stop at First" Puig in the 12th.

So I’m walking out of the first Dodger game I paid for myself this year — we won, 4-2 — and this Mets fan in full jersey and frown walks past me. Obviously jealous that I can’t stop smiling, he mutters, “We’ll get you tomorrow.” To which I reply, “That’s what they all say!”

That’s what the Rays said (sweep!), that’s what the Cards said (we took 3 of 4), and that’s what the Cubs said (another sweep). So you can dream, Mets fans, but don’t count your chickens before the Dodgers have a chance to fry them up.
