    Very big win. What got into Cody Ross? Saenz is on fire, and Lowe actually pitched a decent game.

      Saenz was asked why he hit so well against the Pirates, and he answered something to the tune of "It's the view from home plate."

        Saenz rhymes with Heinz...
        Olmedo rhymes with tomato...
        Heinz is made in Pittsburgh...
        Heinz is made from tomatoes...
        Saenz is the Killer tomato...

        It's obvious why he does well against them.

          Yeah, it must be something because he totally owns them. Although that view doesn't help a lot of hitters, so maybe it's just a fluke.

                San Francisco 2, Los Angeles 1 at Dodger Stadium

                W - Jamey Wright (2-0)
                L - Hong-Chih Kuo (0-2)
                S - Tim Worrell (4)

                SF 2 runs, 4 hits, 0 errors
                LA 1 run, 6 hits, 0 errors

                HR - Jeff Kent, LA (1), Randy Winn, SF (1)

                Dodgers' record - 5-6 (4th in NL West)

                QUICKIE RECAP: I was in the Silver Lake district of LA at around 7:15 (for those unfamiliar with SoCal geography, it's VERY close to Dodger Stadium), and it wasn't raining. I drove onto the 101 heading north into the Valley and at 7:40, I tuned in to KFWB to listen to the game, and there was a rain delay. I got home around 9:30, and the game still hadn't started. It finally began after a 1:57 rain delay, and surprisingly, last night's game featured a pitching duel between 16-game loser Jamey Wright and Brad Penny. Randy Winn led off the 4th with a HR, but Jeff Kent evened the score with a HR in the 6th. Penny had to leave after the 6th due to a bruised arm caused by a Steve Finley comebacker, and the bullpen came in to attempt to hold the lead. Tim Hamulack walked both Finley and Barry Bonds before Ray Durham popped out to the catcher and Takashi Saito forced Lance Niekro to ground into a double play. Hong-Chih Kuo came into the 9th inning and gave up a leadoff single to Omar Vizquel, who advanced to second on a wild pitch. One out later, Durham hit a sac fly to deep right to win the game. Bonds hit no HR and his average dropped to .167. I can safely say that he will not tie Ruth's record in LA.

                  Tough loss last night. Another excellent game by Penny.
                  Kuo stinks, and Furcal can't buy a hit. :grouchy
                  Must win tonight. We're already 2 games behind the Giants; they're 6-3 and Bonds hasn't done anything.

                    According to someone I know who went to the game last night, about ten Giant fans got ejected for safety reasons after because Dodger fans threw popcorn and/or cracker jacks at them.
                    Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

                    If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

                      It was a good win last night to get over .500 and tie the Giants. Odalis Perez actually pitched a decent game

                        Saturday, April 15, 2006

                        Los Angeles 3, San Francisco 1 at Dodger Stadium

                        W - Odalis Perez (2-0)
                        L - Jason Schmidt (0-2)
                        S - Danys Baez (3)

                        LA 3 runs, 5 hits, 0 errors
                        SF 1 run, 5 hits, 0 errors

                        HR - None

                        Dodgers' record - 6-6 (3rd in NL West)

                        QUICKIE RECAP: Another pitching duel, and this time Odalis Perez and the Dodgers came out on top. Jason Schmidt had an off-night, walking seven batters and allowing two runs in six innings, and Barry Bonds was held to a 9th-inning double as the Dodgers evened the series at one game apiece. Kenny Lofton drove in a run with an RBI triple and Dioner Navarro drove in two runs with an RBI groundout and an RBI single. And the Dodger bullpen actually held the lead this time (granted, Perez went 7 innings). Today's game is on ESPN, as Brad Hennessey faces off against Jae Seo in the rubber game of the three-game series.

                          San Francisco 2, Los Angeles 0 at Dodger Stadium

                          W - Brad Hennessey (1-0)
                          L - Jae Seo (0-1)
                          S - Tim Worrell (5)

                          SF 2 runs, 9 hits, 0 errors
                          LA 0 runs, 3 hits, 0 errors

                          HR - None

                          Dodgers' record - 6-7 (3rd in NL West)

                          QUICKIE RECAP: At this point, it's surprising to see the Dodgers trailing the Rockies by 1½ games in the standings. It's also surprising to see the Giants stay 3 games over .500 despite their inability to hit the ball (Randy Winn, Omar Vizquel and Moises Alou are the only ones with decent numbers so far). But then again, our pitching has been losing games this young season. Vizquel led off the sixth with a double and advanced to third on Mark Sweeney's single. Then after an 0-2 count to Barry Bonds, he made a throwing motion towards first base after stepping off the mound, and the umps called a balk, scoring Vizquel. Bonds grounded out and Ray Durham drove in his second run of the series and that was all the Giants would need. Jeff Kent was hit in the head with a pitch in the seventh and suffered a slight concussion (it reminded me of the Piazza/Clemens matchup six years ago) and is out indefinitely. Tim Hamulack was ejected for allegedly throwing at Bonds intentionally in the eighth, but it didn't matter anyway as the Dodgers dropped the three-game set at Chavez Ravine. Brad Hennessey went 6 1/3 innings, allowing only three hits as the Giants' bullpen shut out the Dodgers for the first time this season. Next up: the Chicago Cubs, who have not lost a game in Los Angeles since 2004.

                            Tough loss last night. Couldn't score a damn run against Hennessey. :grouchy
                            We need this game tonight.

                              Chicago 4, Los Angeles 1 at Dodger Stadium

                              W - Greg Maddux (3-0)
                              L - Brett Tomko (1-1)
                              S - Ryan Dempster (3)

                              CHI 4 runs, 8 hits, 0 errors
                              LA 1 run, 3 hits, 1 error

                              HR - Todd Walker, CHI (2)

                              Dodgers' record - 6-8 (3rd in NL West)

                              QUICKIE RECAP: It doesn't matter if you're 26 or 40. These days, if you're pitching against the Dodgers, you're bound to have a good game. On Sunday night, it was Brad Hennessey. Last night it was future Hall-of-Famer Greg Maddux who shut out the mighty Dodgers offense (ever since that 13-5 outburst at PNC, LA has suddenly forgotten how to hit), going 8 innings, allowing only three hits and striking out six. And this guy just turned 40. Brett Tomko couldn't keep up and in the 5th, he crashed and burned, allowing three runs before recording an out. Franquelis Osoria came in and pitched three perfect innings of relief, lowering his ERA to an impressive 6.75. But it was three innings too late, as Todd Walker's HR in the 1st was all the offense the Cubs needed. Tonight's game features Carlos Zambrano against Derek Lowe. Last year, Lowe pitched two games against the Cubs. In the first one, he allowed 13 hits and 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings. In the second, he threw a one-hit shutout. Which Lowe will show up tonight?

                              In other news, Cody Ross was designated for assignment, and the Dodgers called up Oscar Robles from Vegas. Nice knowing you, Cody.

                                They can't score now. They better win tonight, although the offense is struggling again. :grouchy
