(AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)ExpandMIAMI — Whatever it is that ails the Dodgers, there is reason to believe the other symptoms might improve. But the Dodgers’ bullpen is the persistent cough that just won’t go away.Starving for clutch hitting, the Dodgers fairly gorged themselves during a four-run sixth inning that erased an early deficit. But Pedro Baez served up a solo home run to J.T. Realmuto in the bottom of the inning and the Miami Marlins handed the Dodgers another loss, 6-5, Wednesday night.The Dodgers have now lost a season-high six consecutive games, nine of their past 10 and 16 of their past 21. They have fallen into last place in the National League West (percentage points behind the San Diego Padres). Only one team in the NL has fewer wins this season – the Cincinnati Reds, who just swept the Dodgers in a four-game series over the weekend.“Tonight, the silver lining is we put some hits together,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “But the bottom line is we lost another ballgame.” “Well, someone’s going to have to pitch,” Roberts said when asked to explain the choice.“We had (J.T.) Chargois down and you’re in the sixth inning so you’ve got four innings to cover. Pedro’s had three days off. He was rested. Whether it was (Josh) Fields who pitched in that spot or (Daniel) Hudson or Baez – one of those guys is going to have to pitch. All of those guys are going to have to pitch when you’re trying to cover four innings. In that situation, I loved who he was matching up against. It just, unfortunately, didn’t work out tonight.”Realmuto hammered a 1-and-2 changeup from Baez that did little but roll over and ask for it. Whatever momentum-swinging potential the four-run rally had, it was topped by that pitch as the decisive moment in the game.“You keep trying to put these guys in positions to have success,” Roberts said of his bullpen. “You’re mindful of their workload. You try to put them against hitters that you feel they have a great chance to be successful against and you expect them to go out there and put up a zero. I’m going to continue to do what we’ve done.” Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury center_img “I’d say probably not,” Roberts admitted reluctantly. “Not yet.”Wednesday night would have been a good time for it.The Marlins gave Buehler the roughest time of his five big-league starts. They pushed across a run in the first on a two-out RBI single by Brian Anderson then capitalized on an error by shortstop Chris Taylor for another run in the third.When Buehler gave up a two-run home run to Justin Bour in a three-run fifth inning, it was the first time Buehler had given up more than two runs in a start and the Marlins held what had passed for an insurmountable lead against the Dodgers lately.“Just a gigantic, really, really strong human,” Buehler said, marveling at Bour’s ability to take a pitch off the plate and muscle it out down the line in left field. “He’s a Major League Baseball player and a really good hitter.”Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

But Joc Pederson led off the sixth inning with a double off Marlins reliever Junichi Tazawa, moved to third on a fly out and actually scored from there on an RBI single by Yasmani Grandal – the Dodgers’ first hit with a runner in scoring position since Saturday.Three more hits followed in quick succession as if the dam had finally broken – a double by Cody Bellinger, an RBI single by Taylor and a game-tying two-run double by Max Muncy.With Buehler done after a career-high 97 pitches in five innings, Roberts sent Baez out for the sixth.Related Articles Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense The offense has been wanting during this freefall – particularly situational hitting. But the return of Justin Turner gives reason to expect improvement. The starting rotation can look forward to Clayton Kershaw’s eventual return and Walker Buehler’s bright, bright future to fortify it.But no one is painting Tony Cingrani’s return after a 10-day DL (anticipated Saturday) as the move that will set things right in a Dodgers’ bullpen that has Roberts playing Jenga on a nightly basis, wondering which piece will send the whole thing crashing down.Over the past 22 games, Dodgers relievers have surrendered 13 home runs and pitched to a 5.15 ERA with a 1.61 WHIP. Baez took the loss Wednesday, the sixth loss charged to a reliever during this stretch.“It’s one of those things right now – for quite some time, to be quite honest – we haven’t been synced up,” Roberts said.But has this bullpen ever been in sync with anything for more than a game or two here or there?

Wildcats score 15th place finish at 40-team UBC-O High School Volleyball Tournament

first_imgIt was a two steps forward, one step back weekend at the UBC-O High School Girl’s Ogopogo Volleyball Tournament for the Mount Sentinel Wildcats of South Slocan.The Cats looked like world-beaters during the preliminary round but then were rocked during the playoffs to finish 15th overall in the 40-team tourney held during the weekend in Kelowna at the UBC-O gymnasium.“On a very positive note, and important at that, we didn’t quit mentally or physically (which is) something to build on for this coming weekend,” said Sentinel head coach Joe Moreira.Mount Sentinel opened the tourney with three wins during pool play Friday.The result advanced the Cats into the round of 16.However, facing some of the best teams in the province — Kelowna Christian, Penticton and France Xavier  of Edmonton,   Mount Sentinel struggled going winless.“We had hoped to improve on Friday’s performance on Saturday, but it was more of the same and unlike Friday the competition was not as forgiving,” Moreira explained.The Cats head right back onto the court Friday when the club one again travels to Kelowna, this time to compete in the Best of the West Volleyball Tournament.“Like the UBC-O tournament we have an opportunity to compete against very good teams,” said Moreira.“Our first test is against No. 6 ranked Single-A, White Rock Christian.”Mount Sentinel Boys return to courtIt has been a rather lengthy hiatus for the Mount Sentinel Wildcats Boys.The Cats have been idle since the opening week of the high school season, a third-place showing in Creston at the Prince Charles Comets Tournament.However, Mount Sentinel returns to the net Friday as the team enters play at the UBC-O High School Boy’s Ogopogo Volleyball Tournament in Kelowna.Mount Sentinel is an honourable mention in the most recent B.C.
