The On the Road Starter Report

by Bill Chuck on August 26, 2013

In case you didn’t notice, the Dodgers lost last night to Jake Peavy and the Boston Red Sox, 8-1, giving them their first back-to-back losses at home since June 10. It was also the Dodgers’ first series loss since June 16, having gone unbeaten in their previous 18 series.

The Dodgers were lucky they weren’t swept.

The Red Sox starting pitching against LA and San Francisco was superb on their six-game West Coast trip.
