(OPINION) The Bible in Galatians says “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” It appears the Los Angeles Dodgers got to witness that Bible verse firsthand.
Just one day after the Dodgers hosted the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence which is a group that dresses up in drag as nuns and has been known to perform stripteases on crosses, the Dodgers have suffered their worst shut-out loss in history. The Dodgers lost in their home stadium 15-0 to the San Francisco Giants.
According to Fox Sports, It was the Giants’ largest margin of victory over their NL West rival since a 19-3 victory on Sept. 14, 2013. It also matches the worst home shutout loss in Dodgers history, which came in 1898 against Pittsburgh when the team was based in Brooklyn.

With the loss, the Dodgers dropped a home series to the Giants for the first time since losing three of four in July 2021.
“It’s huge to get a series win versus LA and get a chance for a sweep,” winning pitcher and former Dodger Alex Wood said.
Wade and Davis drove in five runs apiece, while Brandon Crawford had four of the Giants’ 17 hits. San Francisco did most of its damage in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings.
Luis Matos drew a leadoff walk in the fifth, stole second and took third on Bobby Miller’s errant pickoff throw. Matos scored on Crawford’s RBI single, snapping Miller’s streak of scoreless innings at 20 1/3.
“The offense was rolling, just putting balls in play against a really good pitcher,” Davis said. “A lot of guys coming back in the dugout were complimenting him on how great of stuff he was and how we needed to make the adjustments.”
Miller (3-1) then hit Casey Schmitt and Wade followed with his fifth homer of the season for a 4-0 lead. “Not really many guys swing first-pitch curveball off of me,” Miller said. “Hats off to him, it was a really good hit.”
