LA Lakers defeat Utah Jazz 111-104. Kobe Bryant, sore back and all, and the Lakers held off the Jazz to win game five of the series. The fourth quarter started with an 81-81 tie and something happened that didn't happen in overtime in game four: Kobe Bryant attempted no shots. Instead he relied on his other four teammates to make the open shots. The best one came 21 seconds left in the game with the Lakers leading 105-102. Sasha Vujacic missed a three pointer and Pau Gasol came up with the offensive rebound and smashes it into the bucket. The Lakers lead the series 3-2 and will play Friday night at Utah.

LA Dodgers defeat Milwaukee Brewers 6-4. The Dodgers did something they haven't done yet this season: win a game when trailing in the ninth inning. Thanks to a Juan Pierre two-run double the Dodgers managed to take the lead. Closer Takashi Saito came in for the save after not pitching for eight days and had a 1-2-3 inning. The Dodgers get off the schneid after losing their last five.

Chicago White Sox defeat LA Angels 6-1. Angel's starter John Lackey came up big going seven innings giving up only six hits, one run and a walk while striking out four. However the Sox's Carlos Quentin came up big in the eighth inning hitting a granny off of Scot Shields.
