Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

The last time the Dodgers lost two in a row, they lost six in a row. They've actually only had one other two-game losing streak all season.

Dodger 2004 Losing Streaks
April 11-13 - two games
May 13-21 - eight games
May 26-28 - three games
June 6-9 - three games
June 21-26 - six games
July 27-28 - two games

In this humpty-dumpty season, the Dodgers started 22-10, then went 15-25, then 21-5 to get to 58-40 two days ago.

The lineup for today's 12 p.m. game offers Jayson Werth batting third, Juan Encarnacion seventh and Dave Ross eighth.

Since coming off the disabled list July 19, Encarnacion has appeared in every game, going 8 for 38 with two doubles, a home run, two walks, an HBP, a .268 on-base percentage and a .342 slugging percentage. In that time, Jayson Werth has gone 3 for 23 with no extra-base hits and four walks, while Dave Roberts has all of 11 plate appearances: three walks and eight outs. All together, the three are 11 for 69: .159 batting average, .266 on-base percentage, .231 slugging percentage, .497 OPS.

Roberts has had a miserable July at the plate - 9 for 60, six walks, no extra-base hits. He is 10 for 10 on stolen bases, however. Stolen bases aren't worth as much as home runs, but Encarnacion has only one homer in the month.
