LA Dodgers defeat Chicago White Sox 5-0. Eric Stults just a couple of weeks ago was sweating it out in Vegas. Wednesday night he became the second Dodger pitcher this season to throw a complete game shutout giving up only four hits while walking only one. Stults was right on his game confusing the Sox hitters all night. Meanwhile Joe Torre decided to field a more normal looking lineup including Andre Ethier and Blake DeWitt. Ethier came through in the first inning with an RBI single and scoring a run. DeWitt hit a two-run double in the fourth inning and scoring a run on Stults' sacrifice fly.

Washington Nationals defeat LA Angels 5-4. Angel's starter Ervin Santana just didn't have enough. In six innings he gave up four runs on four hits but walked five in the process. The Angels would tie the game 4-4 in the eighth inning, but Scot Shields gave up his first run in 15 1/3 innings in the bottom of the ninth to lose it for the Halos. Vlad Guerrero sat the game out with a bit of the stomach flu.
