dodgers choke again

Yes, that was the 19th blown save by their bullpen.

You'd think that with virtually unlimited resources that the dodgers could do better. Guess again. here's the story --

HOUSTON -- For the fourth time in eight days, there was a walk-off in Minute Maid Park. This time, Jason Castro homered into the Crawford Boxes off Dodgers reliever Chris Hatcher in the 10th inning to give the Astros a 3-2 win and a sweep Sunday -- after it was reviewed -- wasting a brilliant effort from Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw.
Unable to solve Kershaw all afternoon, the Astros finally cracked the much-maligned Los Angeles bullpen when Carlos Correa led off the ninth with a single off closer Kenley Jansen and Marwin Gonzalez drove him in on a first-pitch double with two outs, tying the game and giving the Dodgers bullpen its 19th blown save of the season -- tops in the Majors.
