The West Coast — especially Dodger Stadium, Chavez Ravine — is where the Cincinnati Reds' Pennant hopes go to die.

And so it goes on Memorial Day Monday ... the road-weary Reds fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 4-3, for their 13th one-run loss of the season.

It was 21 up, 21 down for the Reds through seven innings. They rallied for three runs in the eighth and threatened in the ninth, but it was all too little too late.

Glass half empty: The Reds can't hit on a consistent basis. They get 'em on and get 'em over, but can't get 'em in.

Glass half full: They're only 6.5 games out of first place (fourth place) despite a three-game losing streak.

You know it. I know it. We all know it. The St. Louis Cardinals are going to win the NL Central. The Reds will be lucky to finish .500.
