gloveless wonders fall to Padres 3-1

Padres   3 9 0
Dodgers 1 3 2

All Aboard the Ohfer train! the Dodgers hopped on board while losing to the Padres 3-1, in the second game of the three game series.

Lilly was mediocre and the defesne attrocious during tonights loss at home.

The Dodgers jumped to an early lead in the second. Kemp Doubled, advanced to third on a flyball by Gibbons, and after a walk to blake, Ellis drove in the run on a force out at second. The Padres unable to turn the double play, thanks to a good slie by Blake.

in the top of third the dodgers defense failed them again. little is talked about how bad the Dodger defense is, but after ranking first in the NL last year, this year they are at the bottom of the league in 10th place. The Dodgers play lazy uninspired defense, and it was horrendous again tonight. Headly singled and was sacrificed to second. then eckstein hit a grounder in the hole at short. Furcal made a nice stop planted back, and threw wildly. The ball bounced in and out of Loney's glove and rolled a few feet away. heres the fun part....Loney maybe thinking he was in some kind of old western movie, or one of those Mel Gibson Lethal Weapon films, tried to be a hero making an off balance throw to home, to try and throw out Headly trying to score from second base on the play. The throw of coarse wasnt anywhere near sailing all the way to the backstop. tie game.

then of coarse as if on cue with Eckstien at second, tejada slugged his 300th home run of his career to give the Padres a 3-1 lead.

The Dodgers only mustered up 3 hits off of Tim Stauffer, in another spot start. Stauffer went 6 innings allowing the 1 run off 3 hits, walking two and striking out 5.
Lilly went 7 allowing three runs off 8 hits walking 1 and striking out 8. as he took the loss.

Heath Bell pitched a scoreless 9th picking up his 43rd save of the season.

The Padres knew full well the Giants had lost today to the Cubs, and COL had lost to arizona. so with this win the Padres leapfrog back into first place. They are half a game ahead of the Giants and three games ahead of the Rockies.

A.J. Ellis went 0 for 3 today, driving in a run with an RBI on a force out.

It seems like this season just wont end, but I assure you that it will soon. only 10 games left. final game of the series against these two. Latos vs. Kuroda tomorrow. lets hope we can get a win. ill be back on friday. Go Blue!
