Second straight loss to the Pirates, who may be one of the worst teams in baseball, but who have been hot in the last two months. Dodgers had the bases loaded in the bottom of the 9th, but couldn't pull it off. Their bullpen is also showing significant weakness. San Diego also lost, so the Dodgers stay 1/2 game back. The Phillies won, so now the Dodgers are tied for the wild card spot.
Tomorrow both the Dodgers & Pirates will be starting rookie pitchers. Billingsly starts for the Dodgers; he was knocked out in the first inning in his last start, the first after returning from injury. Let's hope he's better tomorrow.
Angels won, but so did Oakland.
Red Sox lost. They are trying out a lot of new pitchers. Next year, who knows what will happen. Their rookie closer will probably be converted to a starter.
