Milwaukee Brewers defeat LA Dodgers 5-3. The Dodgers have worse skid marks than one of my exes. With a 3-2 lead in the fifth inning, Dodger's starter Brad Penny gave up a two-run double to last season's NL Rookie of the Year and local boy Ryan Braun. Closer Eric Gagne came in the ninth inning for the save and gave up a single and a walk. Juan Pierre, representing the tying run, pops out to end the game. The Dodgers have now lost five games and just don't look the same with Rafael Furcal on the DL.

LA Angels defeat Chicago White Sox 2-0. Angel's starter Jered Weaver pitched an excellent game after struggling so far this season. He went seven innings striking out six giving up a hit, two walks and no runs. Catcher Mike Napoli got the scoring started in the eighth inning with a sacrifice fly to center to score Torii Hunter from third. Francisco Rodriguez got his 16th save of the season, and the Angels continue to look dominant in the AL.

Utah Jazz at LA Lakers. In the talk leading up to this game five, head coach Phil Jackson is talking about being aggressive. They better, because losing home court will be a huge disappointment. The Jazz are a horrible road team, so I don't expect any disappointments. But then again the Celtics were the best road team in the NBA but have yet to win a road game in the playoffs. 7:30 pm TNT, AM 570 KLAC.

LA Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers. Derek Lowe goes to the mound against Manny Parra. Bad news for the Dodgers. Parra has only one win. 5:05 pm FSN Prime Ticket, AM 790 KABC.

Chicago White Sox at LA Angels. Jose Contreras goes the mound against John Lackey. On the DL this season for a strained triceps muscle, Lackey is making his season debut. 7:05 pm FSN West, AM 830 KLAA.
