David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Giants held a commanding 6.5-game lead at the All-Star break, but after losing the first two games of this series to the Dodgers are now 3 games back -- a season-high lead for L.A. The Giants are 26th in the majors in scoring since the break and the Dodgers are first. If Giants fans are feeling a little anxious, they should. The Dodgers are better right now. Without Clayton Kershaw.
