Mark Hendrickson started the season looking better than ever, but now it looks like he's becoming the pitcher he was last season, when he was pulled from the starting rotation. Today he gave up 4 runs and 9 hits (including back-to-back homers) in only 5 innings worked. Chad Billingsley pitched 3 perfect innings (including 3 strikeouts) and looks ready to replace him in the starting rotation.
Tomko's move to the pen looked good with one perfect inning.
The Dodgers left a total of 16 men on base in the game.
There were a lot of vocal Cubs fans in the stands, and for the first half of the game, they were making a lot more noise than the Dodger fans.
