The Dodgers went east, faced two fine clubs in playoff atmosphere environs, returning home winners of seven of ten games. Character-building? I should say so.

Beginning in Miami with the also-ran of the trip, Los Angeles took two out of three from the Marlins, with Hanley Ramirez leading the way. Ramirez recorded six hits, with five runs batted in against his old club, Clayton Kershaw and Chris Capuano won their starts convincingly, and Kenley Jansen added saves number 23 and 24 of the season. And it was on to Pittsburgh.

Despite a loss highlighted by the unfortunate ejections of Matt Kemp and Don Mattingly, and the skipper’s subsequent two-day suspension, L.A. still managed three victories in four tries, scoring 30 runs in the process. Seven hits for Hanley in that series, and contributions from almost everyone on the roster.

The Dodgers lost a tough one in extra innings Friday to open their set in Atlanta, with Mattingly leaving himself open to all kinds of second-guessing. And first-guessing. An ill-advised sacrifice (my personal non-favorite), the leaving of Ronald Belisario in to face Jayson Heyward with a rested Randy Choate available, and the decision to keep Jansen waiting for the save situation that never came low-lighted that one.

By Saturday’s announcement of his suspension, more than a few Dodger fans were ready for a two-day stay from Mr. Mattingly. While I don’t really think Trey Hillman’s substitute managing made the difference, necessarily, L.A. did win both Saturday and Sunday, with Mattingly peering down from a Turner Field luxury suite.  You know the old Jewish saying, right? “It’s like chicken soup to a dead man; it couldn’t hurt.” The team wasn’t hurt with the absence of its field boss.

That evening’s game featured the rather unusual back-to-back-to-back home runs by Ramirez, James Loney and Luis Cruz, a second homer – a three-run job by Hanley later – and the Dodgers winning 6-2 on four hits total, home runs all. Plus a gutty 6 2/3 of one-run ball from Aaron Harang, and Jansen’s 25th save.

Cruz has been nothing short of a revelation. The career minor league infielder was 6-11 with two long balls in the Braves series, 12-29 during the road trip (good for a .448 average), and is at a very solid .279 on the year, including a .368 with runners in scoring position, and 29 RBIs in 129 at bats.

For comparison, the man Cruz replaced on the roster, Dee Gordon, hit .229, with 17 RBIs in 301 at bats. And Cruz makes all the plays at both shortstop and third base.

I’m not apologizing for my criticism of Chad Billingsley earlier, because he deserved every bit of it, but credit where credit is due. Bills has a done a complete 180 since a disabled list stint, bookended around the four-day All-Star break. He’s won six straight games in the second half, has lowered his earned run average from 4.30 to 3.44 in that span, and threw 15 shutout innings on eight hits on the trip. Billingsley will face Miami’s Mark Buehrle on Friday night at Dodger Stadium next.

But before we get to that, there’s the little matter of first place to discuss. The San Francisco Giants, minus their disgraced drug-cheating bastard of a left fielder (yes, another one) hit town for three huge games Monday through Wednesday.

Clayton Kershaw goes for his fifth straight win opposite Madison Bumgarner tomorrow, Joe Blanton and Tim Lincecum match up Tuesday in the 5.00-ERAs game Tuesday, and it’s Capuano vs. Matt Cain in the finale.

While the Dodgers seem to be playing better on the road lately, with successful dress rehearsals against the Bucs and Braves just concluded, they’re as ready as they’ll ever be for a series like the one upcoming. They’re in first place, a half-game ahead of San Francisco, at 67-55.

As I predicted before the Atlanta series, the Dodgers will win two of three here, with Kershaw beating the Giants as he always does, and Capuano besting Cain in the third game. Tuesday’s contest is anyone’s guess, and nothing would surprise me there, except perhaps for a 1-0 decision by one team or the other.

And don’t worry about Matt Kemp, who was hitless versus the Braves over the weekend. He’ll be absolutely fine, beginning at 7:10 p.m. tomorrow.

If you can’t be there in person, and there are good seats available, try your hand at one of my game threads. There will be a Giants fan participating and you can give him all kinds of bleep for nine innings a night. He’s quite the good sport.

It takes ten seconds to sign up, you can use a fake name and avatar, if you like, and no holds barred. Or you can bar your holds. That’s fine too. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, please don’t hesitate to ask.

It’s the Dodgers and the Giants for three, beginning tomorrow night at the Ravine. I can’t wait.

And remember, glove conquers all.

“Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in SF – the sad-sack Giants have lost out.”

I’m beginning to feel like I’m in that “Burning Ring Of Fire” Johnny Cash was always going on about.
I’ve got the Chips fire on one side, the Ponderosa fire on the other, and Lassen National Park on fire about 20 miles or so away, as the crow flies.
My place is safe enough, but the air isn’t very good for anyone with asthma – a lot of smoke. I may have to increase my beer consumption in order to keep my throat moist.
Go Dodgers.

@Johnny Dodger that’s lame. you can always try the mlb network for highlights as the game goes along. they can’t black that out. you might be surprised how much they show, and some of it live.

August 20, 2012 7:51 pm

@wesparkerinia all he does is pitch, hit and field. but clearly, he’s not much of a base stealer, so I say trade him for ryan dempster right now.

 @Howard Cole  I am drinking a giant glass of freshly made juice for dinner.  Yes, you read that right.  In an attempt to repair my ailing health, we bought a juicer and today was the trial run.  On the menu, carrots, beets, ginger, broccoli, spinach, parsley, celery, apples and a slice of lemon and orange.

be nice to see Ethier pick it up a notch

August 20, 2012 8:09 pm

it’s safe to say kemp’s in a little slump. hopefully it’s a short one. very short. because we can’t count on andre all that much, and certainly not against left-handers.

August 20, 2012 8:09 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood  @Howard Cole
 sounds delicious!

August 20, 2012 8:09 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  That’s the crazy thing about Kemp.  He goes from rusty to hot instantly – like he did when he came off the disabled list – but then he seems to get impatient or something and he hits the skids for awhile.

August 20, 2012 8:11 pm

avatar

ouch….nasty strike 3 to hanRam

August 20, 2012 8:12 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood yeah, which is why I’m holding out hope it’s a short slump, like it ends today.

August 20, 2012 8:12 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia yeah, and andre in a second.

August 20, 2012 8:12 pm

avatar

Need to get the Bum deep into counts.  Maybe they can get to him in the 7th or 8th…

August 20, 2012 8:13 pm

avatar

so I lied. this isn’t the inning they get to bumgarner.

August 20, 2012 8:13 pm

avatar

two superb pitchers, no doubt about it.  we’re lucky tonight.  got a good one going.

August 20, 2012 8:13 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood that’s the recipe. too bad kersh gave up that early run.

August 20, 2012 8:13 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo cause you’re winning.

August 20, 2012 8:14 pm

avatar

why does he even bother to bring a bat to the plate.

August 20, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

is he hurt again?

August 20, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 nope.  both superb pitchers.  if both stay health we might have Koufax-Marichal in the years ahead.  no kidding.  looks at their records this year – near even, Kershaw with slight advantage but very, very close on record and era.

August 20, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

it is a good one…can’t believe it’s not sold out @Tom in San Mateo

August 20, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia he’ll make the excuse after the season, or late in the season. for now he says he’s fine.

August 20, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood  He’s been giving up an early run or two all season.  His stuff is still lethal, but he seems to give up a 2-3 hard hit balls per game – sometimes more.  Could be he’s not trusting his fastball.

August 20, 2012 8:17 pm

avatar

 @Tom in San Mateo  @Howard Cole  Like spicy dirt!  Actually, I expected it to be worse.

August 20, 2012 8:18 pm

avatar

Need to win this one with our Ace going and pick up a game on SF and AZ.

August 20, 2012 8:19 pm

Another hard hit ball.

August 20, 2012 8:19 pm

Good pitching….no wasting time…fun to watch

August 20, 2012 8:20 pm

belt just said damn to that last pitch

August 20, 2012 8:21 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood exactly! gotta win the first game. doesn’t matter if kersh gets the win, but the team needs it. but he looks great again. just one bad pitch, and it cost him a run. let’s make bumgarner work now!

August 20, 2012 8:22 pm

Juan Rivera to get things started?

August 20, 2012 8:22 pm

 @wesparkerinia
 saw Kershaw one of his first times against Giants in SF.  man, he was impressive.  I turned to my buddy and said, Kershaw?  Buzzsaw is more like it.  he was really something in person.  only time I saw him in person

August 20, 2012 8:26 pm

can’t remember where i read it this AM, but someone mentioned signing Torii Hunter would be a good idea if they don’t re-sign Victorino

 crackin up.  you must be a cheeseburger guy. 

August 20, 2012 8:27 pm

yeah, I saw that a few days ago. la times I think. interesting. I don’t know if hunter has another good year with the bat left, and i wouldn’t give victorino more than a year. two at the absolute most.

ellis will see some pitches here, as will kersh. so we can get his pitch count up for the top of the order in the sixth.

I wish vinny would call me a fine writer.

August 20, 2012 8:29 pm

 @Howard Cole  Makes you wonder if he shouldn’t be hitting higher in the order.

that would rock @Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:29 pm

Next time i see him, I’ll put in a good word @Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:30 pm

 @Howard Cole  I don’t know, I love Vin, but there’s a good chance he’d call you a wine fighter.

August 20, 2012 8:30 pm

@DeathByYoungblood use a pun, go to jail.

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood  Well, that wasn’t exactly a pun.
 

August 20, 2012 8:31 pm

this is working. bumgarner’s made about 20 more pitches than kersh, and he only has one out here. opps.

August 20, 2012 8:31 pm

Oyyy….

August 20, 2012 8:32 pm

rats!
@Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:32 pm

mattingly strikes again, so kersh leads off another inning. he’ll get a hit, of course, and be out there forever.

August 20, 2012 8:32 pm

our skipper, the inning butcher.

August 20, 2012 8:33 pm

@DeathByYoungblood a play on words, but I don’t have a joke for that. and I use that joke any chance I can get.

August 20, 2012 8:34 pm

@Tom in San Mateo yeah, but mattingly handed that one to you. just incomprehensible that he’d send cruz there. lame. I’d take my chances on a dp first.

like your comment…wish he was wearing blue @Tom in San Mateo

we thought we had that in russell martin. man, were we wrong. but he’s worse now. can’t hit .200 to save his life.

August 20, 2012 8:35 pm

avatar

I could make an argument that kershaw is outpitching bumgarner, and in a way he is. just that one bad pitch.

August 20, 2012 8:36 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia
 Thanks, Wes.  We in SF have never had one in my time.  good catchers, no bat; or good bat, average defense.  closest we got was the the ex-Padre catcher at end of his career – Santiago, and he was full of juiced muscles.

August 20, 2012 8:37 pm

avatar

bumgarner has two more innings, if the dodgers are smart. then they get into the giants pen. it could work, but I’d rather they get something in the sixth.

August 20, 2012 8:38 pm

avatar

too close to call, both pitchers are getting breaks they need when they need them @Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:38 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 yep, fair statement.  both are something.  Bumgarner has a mean streak.

August 20, 2012 8:38 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo @wesparkerinia there’s always tom haller. we had him too.

August 20, 2012 8:38 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo @wesparkerinia and don’t forget mark “the stick” hill.

August 20, 2012 8:39 pm

avatar

another hit for dodger pagan. wtf.

August 20, 2012 8:39 pm

avatar

so is Donnie going to hit for Kershaw with that awesome bench?

August 20, 2012 8:40 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom  @wesparkerinia
 Haller was the catcher when I became a G’s fan at 5 and 6 yo.  not much to compare to Posey. and  Hill can’t hold a candle to Posey

August 20, 2012 8:40 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia no way. not in the sixth.

August 20, 2012 8:40 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia if he does I will scream.

August 20, 2012 8:41 pm

avatar

c’mon!

August 20, 2012 8:41 pm

cruz is the better shortstop. they outta switch them back tomorrow. but that’s don.

August 20, 2012 8:41 pm

avatar

gotta be E6, but no….

August 20, 2012 8:42 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia that is absolutely an error.

August 20, 2012 8:42 pm

avatar

has Pablo been working out?

August 20, 2012 8:42 pm

avatar

and kersh has to make all these extra pitches for no reason. and he has to get this guy!

August 20, 2012 8:43 pm

avatar

dammit!!!!!!!!!!

August 20, 2012 8:43 pm

avatar

Well hell, again.

August 20, 2012 8:43 pm

avatar

and it should be unearned, but it’s the game that matters. and he has to make even more pitches.

August 20, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

Blinked…

August 20, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood it’s on hanley. his fault. inning ruined, and maybe the game.

August 20, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

you know what the real problem is. two really. one, the stink at home lately. and two, they stink in the first game of series. it’s a real problem.

August 20, 2012 8:45 pm

 @wesparkerinia
 only on top of Trixie, I think.  seriously, he’s been given stern warnings about his eating.  that’s for sure.  for a year or two lived with his mother in San Bruno with her cooking the stuff he obviously liked too much.  hehehe

August 20, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

oh, and kershaw looks like billingsley. they’ve switch places. kind of.

August 20, 2012 8:45 pm

avatar

I’m exaggerating, but still.

August 20, 2012 8:45 pm

and it’s a game you have to win…it’s los Gigantes@Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:46 pm

Vin said Posey was hitting .186 with 2/out and RISP

August 20, 2012 8:47 pm

avatar

haven’t looked at numbers, but they kinda suck in NL West games @Howard Cole

August 20, 2012 8:48 pm

avatar

The Dodgers won’t beat anyone with Cruz and Kershaw having the only hits.
That’s a foregone conclusion.

August 20, 2012 8:48 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia I’m missed that, but I like it.

August 20, 2012 8:49 pm

avatar

@Johnny Dodger yep, but you can’t mess up on easy ground balls like that. totally changed the game. what about 10 extra pitches and doubling the lead. but here’s kersh with the hit again. I wish andre would watch.

August 20, 2012 8:49 pm

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood  Today, a three hours before the game, Hanley tweeted a pic of his new Dodger Blue mitt.  Seriously.  https://twitter.com/HanleyRamirez/status/237688790964121600/photo/1

you can’t have your pitcher stand out there for no reason.

August 20, 2012 8:52 pm

 @Howard Cole
 Doby’s right, Howard.  It’s baseball.  Might end up 7-2 in a bad way from my point-of-view.  Man, for having loved baseball all your life you must know all can change very fast. 

August 20, 2012 8:54 pm

fyi. clayton kershaw is hitting 60 points more than juan uribe now.

August 20, 2012 8:54 pm

all right.

August 20, 2012 8:55 pm

August 20, 2012 8:58 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 c’mon, kemp’s great for sure but Bumgarner is a meanass lefty who knows what he’s doing. 

August 20, 2012 8:59 pm

avatar

@Johnny Dodger he’s swinging at balls at his feet, but maybe that’s an improvement from yesterday, when he was swinging at balls four feet outside.

August 20, 2012 8:59 pm

low pitches are eating him up…

August 20, 2012 8:59 pm

 @Johnny Dodger
 I can type real fast, Johnny, need me to describe it?  But  I think Howard’s doing a superb job.
 
 

August 20, 2012 9:00 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo well, I’m not sticking to my kersh-is-out-pitching-him line. no way. I’m just holding out hope he’s done after seven, and then maybe we have a chance. we need two innings against that pen.

August 20, 2012 9:00 pm

avatar

I was already drinking when this game started….that last inning did not help

August 20, 2012 9:00 pm

avatar

 @Tom in San Mateo No, I don’t really want a better picture of this game.

an aside -  was reading the sporting green (SF Chronicle’s sports section years ago, it was green) while my old man was reading the front page and I asked him, Why do the giants always start their night games later than the dodgers and without lowering his paper he said, Because San Francisco is farther west than Los Angeles and the sun goes down about a half hour later here.
 
bastard always had the answer and looking back nearly always the right answer.

@Tom in San Mateo yeah, but did I mention i was pissed. but what the hell, they did this exact same thing against the braves. lose the first game and win the next two. why they don’t show up for game one of a series I have no idea.

August 20, 2012 9:05 pm

the real problem with this game? kershaw’s only got two singles, and he needs two homers. his fault, clearly.

August 20, 2012 9:07 pm

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 SF has a very solid pen.  Bring it on!

August 20, 2012 9:07 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo Always amazed me as a kid that Reno was further west than L.A.

August 20, 2012 9:08 pm

avatar

well, it’s still a damn good seven innings. they shouldn’t have scored in the sixth. it should be unearned.

August 20, 2012 9:08 pm

avatar

pitch like that an get an L…it is not right

August 20, 2012 9:09 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia yeah, but it’s the dodgers. he’s used to it. ok, it’s time to get to bumgarner right bleeping now. ethier’s an automatic out, so it’s up to hanley and rivera. and hopefully cruz.

August 20, 2012 9:11 pm

avatar

 @Johnny Dodger
 still surprises me.  good point, Jonny D.

August 20, 2012 9:11 pm

hanley owes us a run, so now’s the time!

August 20, 2012 9:11 pm

WORK THE COUNT PLEASE

August 20, 2012 9:12 pm

avatar

looked like a home run pitch there

August 20, 2012 9:14 pm

avatar

bumgarner has classic lefty whip motion…Vin says this is 7th 3-ball count

August 20, 2012 9:14 pm

avatar

only good thing is that he saw six pitches. now let’s see if andre can at least stay up there more than ten seconds.

August 20, 2012 9:15 pm

avatar

they’re 0-7 w/ 4 Ks

August 20, 2012 9:15 pm

avatar

dammit, you guys have a very good team.  and you’re all wimping out.  granted, Bumgarner is damn fine pitcher.  BUT IT’S BASEBALL! 
 
 

August 20, 2012 9:15 pm

ethier’s horrible, but we got lucky.

August 20, 2012 9:15 pm

@Tom in San Mateo who’s wimping it out? define wimping out.

August 20, 2012 9:16 pm

avatar

again, first pitch swinging. hello!?

August 20, 2012 9:16 pm

avatar

lame. well, here’s their best hitter. and they’re not even going to get bumgarner out after seven.

August 20, 2012 9:18 pm

 Woe is us, the sky is falling, etc.  Beat our asses before we beat yours.  You got the final inning.  I love it.  D’s are a damn good team.  You sound like it’s over.
 
It’s not the nfl or nba.  it’s the best out there, Major League Baseball.  Ain’t over til it’s over.

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 I’ll put it this way.  If Kershaw beat the Giants it’s hardly end of world.  He’s one of the best pitchers in baseball. 
 
If Giants beat Dodgers, they’ll have been beat by one of the best up and coming big lefies in the NL. 
 
and the D’s can still win.  no doubt about it.

eight solid innings, on what should be one earned. but the guy didn’t homer, so he can’t expect to win.

like I said, five or six pitches.

sixth pitch coming up.

August 20, 2012 9:29 pm

almost exactly what they needed. a bunch of pitches and then a hit.

@Tom in San Mateo why would I be? there’s nothing frustrating happening here. now they’ll give up another run. watch. then casilla will give up two and they’ll lose 3-2

 Howard wants all games to be 10 to nothing in the second inning, Dodgers up.
 
Baseball wouldn’t exist.

@Tom in San Mateo bleep baseball. I never liked the thing. I’ve only been pretending because I need the attention.

August 20, 2012 9:54 pm

avatar

Yeah, could have guessed it.  2-1…

August 20, 2012 9:54 pm

avatar

Here you go, Howard.  Casilla’s coming in.  He gives up two and the D’s win 3-2. 

August 20, 2012 9:54 pm

avatar

I figured they’d give up a run in the top of the ninth and then score two to lose 3-2. course, that could still happen, if there’s a catcher’s interference or a hit batter now.

 @Howard Cole  @Johnny Sorry, Howard – no fun without being able to see what’s happening. I think I’ll just get some work done around here tonight (Tuesday) while I listen to the game on my headset. Ironically, the Redding station is broadcasting tomorrow’s game, so I should finally get to watch one, while you’re at the game and not having a thread.

@Johnny Dodger @Johnny maybe the blackout restrictions will be different tonight. either way, I understand.
