“I’m open for suggestions,” he said after the NL West leaders lost their 10th straight game for their worst skid in 25 years, routed by Mark Reynolds and the Colorado Rockies 8-1 Sunday.
Reynolds hit a grand slam, Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story also homered, and Tyler Chatwood pitched five scoreless innings.
The Dodgers are just the fourth team in major league history to win 14 of 15 games and lose 14 of 15 in the same season, joining the 1914 Pirates, 1955 Phillies and 1959 Kansas City Athletics, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Reynolds hit his fifth career grand slam over the left-field wall off Walker Buehler, the Dodgers’ prized prospect making his second appearance in the big leagues.
Hall of Famer Tom Lasorda, who managed the Dodgers to their last World Series championship in 1988, visited with Roberts and talked to the team before the game.
