LAst Night's Action: Schmidt Wins!
LA Dodgers defeat Cincinnati Reds 7-5. After watching the abomination that was the top half of the first inning, Jason Schmidt looked like he was heading back on the shelf. He gave up three runs on two singles, a double, a triple, a walk and a stolen base and wasn't fooling any of the Reds hitters. In the next four innings he would only give up a single, two walks and hit a batter while keep the Reds scoreless. Meanwhile the Dodgers bats had Schmidt's back by knocking in four runs in the bottom half of the first inning. Manny Ramirez would surpass Mickey Mantle for 15th on the all-time home run leaderboard on a two-run homer in the second inning, his tenth of the season. Andre Ethier would tack on a solo shot in the fifth inning. The Reds would make it interesting off of James McDonald in the eighth inning by scoring two runs, Ramon Troncoso and Jonathan Broxton would shut them down. This would make it win number two for Schmidt in a Dodger uniform.
