LAst Night's Action: Dodgers Ejected and Rejected
Arizona Diamondbacks (16-6) defeat LA Dodgers (9-13) 6-4. The good news: the Dodgers scored more than one run. The bad news: the Dodgers still lost. Chad Billingsley (0-4) started off shakily but eventually struck out six of eight consecutive batters. Jeff Kent and Joe Torre were ejected from the game in the top of the ninth for arguing a blown call in the eighth inning when second base umpire Andy Fletcher said Kent was off the base when trying to record an out at second.
LA Angels (14-9) defeat Boston Red Sox (15-9) 7-5. The Angels showed up in Fenway Park seemingly sleep walking. They rubbed the boogers out of their eyes in the seventh inning when they abused Red Sox relievers Javier Lopez, Manny Del Carmen and Hideki Okajima for four runs to blow the game open. They got two insurance runs in the eighth and ninth innings which they needed since Scott Shields gave a two run blast in the bottom of the ninth to David Ortiz.
