LAst Night's Action: HI-RO-KI!!!!!

Arizona Diamondbacks defeat LA Dodgers 3-2. Hiroki Kuroda did a good job in his first start since opening day going five innings giving up two runs. But DBacks starter Billy Buckner (not to be confused with World Series goat Bill Buckner) was better shutting out the Dodgers in six innings. The Dodgers relievers didn't help themselves with Cory Wade throwing three wild pitches and Brent Leach throwing two wild ones that would have made Mitch Williams smiled. The Dodgers rallied with two runs in the bottom of the ninth but couldn't muster anything more. I guess getting back to LA from Chicago at 4 am doesn't help things any.
