LAst Night's Action: Dodgers Win Two in a Row!
LA Dodgers defeat Cincinnati Reds 6-1. Can the Dodgers play the Reds everyday? Seriously. Not only do the Dodgers score more than one run, they give beleaguered starter Derek Lowe run support. Pitching on a strict count, Lowe pitched only 5 1/3 innings making 85 pitches giving up only one run on three hits with six strikeouts. James Loney helped the cause hitting a solo homer and an RBI double. Dare we wish for three straight wins?
NY Mets defeat LA Angels 5-4 (10). Down 3-1 in the fifth inning with the bases loaded with no outs, the Angels rallied for three runs to take a 4-3 lead. However Torii Hunter losing track of outs which led to a rundown at third ended the inning and the Angel's scoring. Angel's closer Francisco Rodriguez blew the save allowing the Mets to tie the game, and in the tenth Damon Easley went yard against Justin Speier. The Mets win the series despite losing their manager.
