          Philadelphia 6, Los Angeles 3 at Citizens Bank Park

          W - Tom Gordon (1-1)
          L - Tim Hamulack (0-1)

          PHI 6 runs, 7 hits, 2 errors
          LA 3 runs, 5 hits, 1 error

          HR - Dioner Navarro, LA (1), Bobby Abreu, PHI (1)

          Dodgers' record - 2-3 (3rd in NL West) (for now)

          QUICKIE RECAP: Yhency Brazoban should NOT be allowed to pitch against the Phillies. Ever. Last year, he gave up a 2-run shot in the 10th against Ryan Howard in Philly and a grand slam to him two weeks later. And today, he threw a wild pitch (although Abraham Nuñez was thrown out at home), and then Aaron Rowand followed with a game-tying RBI single. In the 9th, Alex Gonzalez reached on an error and one out later, Jimmy Rollins was intentionally walked. Bobby Abreu came and hit a walk-off HR off Tim Hamulack (despite the loss, his ERA is still 0.00). The Dodgers should be ashamed to let the last winless team break into the win column at their expense. But who cares? JD Drew, Philadelphia's favorite son, is still cashing in his $11M paycheck, Nomar is being paid $6M to sit on the DL, and Brazoban can make ends meet on a $300,000 salary.

            Los Angeles 6, Philadelphia 2 at Citizens Bank Park

            W - Brad Penny (2-0)
            L - Jon Lieber (0-2)

            LA 6 runs, 15 hits, 0 errors
            PHI 2 runs, 7 hits, 0 errors

            HR - None

            Dodgers' record - 3-3 (3rd in NL West) (for now)

            QUICKIE RECAP: Brad Penny followed up his masterful performance against the Braves with one against his former division rival and punching bag, the Phillies, going 7 innings and allowing only four hits. LA was in desperate need of a good pitching performance, and after blowing a 3-0 lead spectacularly in the opening game of the doubleheader, they finally got it. Bobby Abreu went 3-for-3, driving in both of the Phillies' runs, but that was about it. Ramon Martinez drove in two runs against his former team, and Aaron Fultz fell apart in the 8th inning. The Dodgers won the series for the second consecutive year in Philly, which means we're due for another losing season.

              We really needed that win to get back to .500
              Penny has gotten off to an excellent start. Meanwhile, Furcal has not.

                    Los Angeles 8, Pittsburgh 3 at PNC Park

                    W - Odalis Perez (1-0)
                    L - Zach Duke (0-1)

                    LA 8 runs, 11 hits, 1 error
                    PIT 3 runs, 14 hits, 1 error

                    HR - Jason Repko, LA (1), Olmedo Saenz, LA (1)

                    Dodgers' record - 4-3 (3rd in NL West)

                    Everyone across the country called out Dodger management when Jim Tracy "parted ways" with the organization, pointing out his track record here in LA (four winning seasons and one division title) and saying how he'll be successful in Pittsburgh. These people must not know much about the West Coast. For one thing, managing a small-market team is nothing like leading a team that plays in the nation's second-largest market. And the Dodgers never started 1-7 under Tracy. Zach Duke, who dominated the Dodgers in his first start against them last year, found himself in a lot of trouble early on, allowing a 2-run HR to Jason Repko and a triple by Cody Ross. Olmedo Saenz continued his destruction of Pittsburgh pitching, going 3-for-4 with a HR, and in his last 15 ABs at PNC Park, he has 10 hits. The Pirates wish they had him in their lineup. Of course, under Tracy, he'd only start against left-handers.

                    Today's (tonight on the East Coast) game will feature Jae Seo in his first start for the Dodgers against Ian Snell.

                        Tuesday, April 10, 2006

                        Pittsburgh 7, Los Angeles 6 at PNC Park

                        W - Salomon Torres (1-1)
                        L - Lance Carter (0-1)
                        S - Mike Gonzalez (1)

                        PIT 7 runs, 9 hits, 1 error
                        LA 6 runs, 12 hits, 0 errors

                        HR - Bill Mueller, LA (1, 2), Ricky Ledée, LA (1), Jeromy Burnitz, PIT (2), Ryan Doumit, PIT (2), Jack Wilson, PIT (2), Craig Wilson, PIT (2)

                        Dodgers' record - 4-4 (3rd in NL West)

                        QUICKIE RECAP: Old Dodgers have a habit of sticking it to LA. First it was Shawn Green last year, and now it's Jeromy "No Hitz" Burnitz, who hit a whopping .204 as a member of the Dodgers back in 2003. The Dodgers once again jumped out to an early lead, but the Pirates chipped away slowly. Jae Seo left with a 6-5 lead, but Lance Carter couldn't hold it, as Craig Wilson hit a game-tying homer, and Ryan Doumit hit a sac fly to give the Pirates the lead, and as often happens with the Dodgers, they run out of gas early. Olmedo Saenz, Pirate killer, was brought in to pinch-hit, and in typical Dodger fashion, he was the last out of the game. Bill Mueller hit two HRs and went 4-for-4, but he was the only Dodger who did any damage last night. I guess we can safely say that Tracy is haunting the Dodgers.

                          Our pitching is horrible. Tomko sucks, and except for Baez, the whole bullpen sucks. :grouchy
                          We have to win tomorrow's game.

                            Pittsburgh 9, Los Angeles 5 at PNC Park

                            W - Salomon Torres (2-1)
                            L - Hong-Chih Kuo (0-1)

                            PIT 9 runs, 14 hits, 0 errors
                            LA 5 runs, 14 hits, 1 error

                            HR - Jose Cruz, Jr., LA (1), Craig Wilson, PIT (3,4), Jack Wilson, PIT (3), Freddy Sanchez, PIT (1)

                            Dodgers' record - 4-5 (4th in NL West)

                            QUICKIE RECAP: The Dodgers have not lost to a starting pitcher this year. But all of their losses have been charged to the bullpen. Yesterday's game followed the same old pattern: Dodgers get an early lead, opponents chip away, opponents take the lead, Dodgers offense shuts down, game over. Craig Wilson hit two HRs to lead the Pirates, and Yhency Brazoban killed all hope for a Dodger rally, as the Pirates took the first two games of the four-game set. Brett Tomko wasn't particularly intimidating, as he left the game trailing 5-3, but Cody Ross and Rafael Furcal bailed him out with RBI hits. Enter Hong-Chih Kuo, who allowed a 2-run HR to Wilson, and the Dodgers lose a second time to Tracy. Which brings up the question: Is there any difference between Little and Tracy?

                              I think it's a wee bit premature to ask that question. It's not even Tax Day yet.

                                Thursday, April 12, 2006

                                Los Angeles 13, Pittsburgh 5 at PNC Park

                                W - Derek Lowe (1-1)
                                L - Oliver Perez (0-2)

                                LA 13 runs, 15 hits, 1 error
                                PIT 5 runs, 9 hits, 0 errors

                                HR - Olmedo Saenz, LA (2), Cody Ross, LA (1,2), Jeromy Burnitz, PIT (3)

                                Dodgers' record - 5-5 (3rd in NL West) (for now)

                                QUICKIE RECAP: Cody Ross' career game might have been his last for the Dodgers, as he started today's game in right field because JD Drew took the day off and Kenny Lofton is ready to come off the disabled list, which means that if Ross is sent down to Las Vegas, he'll have to clear waivers first. He hit a grand slam and a three-run shot in successive at-bats, driving in seven runs, the most by a Dodger player since Shawn Green's historic game against the Brewers four years ago, and Olmedo Saenz continued his destruction of Pirates pitching, driving in four runs, going 8-for-14 in the series. Derek Lowe allowed four runs in six innings, evening his record at 1-1, and Tim Hamulack, Franquelis Osoria, and Takashi Saito shut the door on the Pirates (not really, since Osoria allowed a run to the Bucs in the 8th) as the Dodgers split the series at PNC Park before heading back to LA to take on the first-place Giants, who as I type this are playing the first game of a doubleheader against the Astros.

                                Interesting note: Ross entered the game with eight career RBIs, and he almost doubled that total today. Once Lofton comes back, I wouldn't mind seeing one of the relievers being sent down to Vegas.
