Dodgers Beat Padres, Again!

Who would have thought that Greg Maddux would have his worst outing of the year against the Dodgers and David Wells? Maddux gave up 10 hits and 6 runs in only 3.1 innings of work.

Wells on the other hand did extremely well until the 6th, when 2 homers cost him 3 runs. Perhaps the highlight of the evening was Wells 300-pound frame chugging into a stand-up double off of Maddux. (He got thrown out at third after a Furcal grounder.) 44-year old Wells had his first multi-hit game of his career.

Proctor and Broxton pitched well and got holds, and Saito got his 38th save of the season, striking out 2 and getting the third batter to ground out on 1 pitch. The final three pitchers faced the minimum number of pitchers.

James Loney had 3 hits and 4 RBI.

The game was surprisingly poorly attended, especially considering that two living legends were pitching, with both teams vying for the wild card. The Dodgers are now only 1.5 games behind the Padres for the WC spot. They face #1 Arizona over the weekend.
