Dodgers Thrown Out At Home Twice on the Same Play
The Dodgers got rocked in many ways last night in muggy New York; the weirdest was when former Dodger hero Paul LoDuca tagged out both Jeff Kent and J.D. Drew after Russell Martin hit a blast off the right-field wall with no outs. It turned into a bizarre double play that led to the Mets' 6-5 victory.
"As I was about to hold Jeff up, I said, 'Uh-ohhh,' " LA third base coach Rich Donnelly said, "because here came J.D., about 10 feet behind him. So what am I supposed to do? I can't hold them both. And I can't send them both. So I said, I'd better send Jeff and hope they screw up the relay or something."
Tonight, rookie southpaw Hong-Chih Kuo hopes to recapture some of that Shea magic that he had in September when he pitched six shutout innings in his only win in the majors. He squares off against future Hall of Famer Tom Glavine, who has chalked up 290 wins over his career.
