LAst Night's Action: Woah!
LA Dodgers defeat San Francisco Giants 2-0. The Dodgers get their major league-leading ninth shutout of the season as they quiet the Giants. Dodger starter Jason Johnson in his first start in two years went six scoreless innings giving up only five hits. On a very strange play in the sixth inning, Fred Lewis bobbled a line drive by Casey Blake into the left field stands, grabbed the ball and got James Loney out at home. However since the ball got bobbled into the stands, it was considered an overthrow allowing Loney to score the second run.
LA Angels defeat Boston Red Sox 6-2. The Angels just keep killing the Sox. John Lackey got his groove back along with his nasty breaking ball throwing a no hitter for 8 1/'3 innings. He pitched the complete game despite giving up two runs in the final 2/3 innings. What a performance. And while the Angels scored six runs, they have now officially gotten scarier. Yes, the Angels won the Mark Teixeira sweepstakes giving up first baseman Casey Kotchman and pitching prospect Stephen Marek.
