BASEBALL REPORT / DAILY REPORT : DODGERS : They Are Taking Fog With Them

The Dodgers hoped the start of today's three-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Candlestick Park would mean something more than tilting at windmills.

The reality is that the Dodgers, trailing the Giants by 15 games with August fast approaching, probably need a sweep to keep divisional hopes alive.

The Dodgers' lackluster performance Sunday only prepared them for the weather, not the Giants.

"It seems like we were in a fog all day," Dodger outfielder Eric Davis said after his team's 4-0 loss to the New York Mets.

Dodger pitcher Ramon Martinez pitched into the seventh inning for the eight consecutive game. . . . The Dodgers who had hits Sunday were Piazza, Brett Butler, Jose Offerman, Eric Karros and Raul Mondesi. . . . The Dodgers concluded their first losing home stand of the season.
