Bills and Kemp power Dodgers to win 3-2

Dbacks 2 5 1
Dodgers 3 11 0

in the second to last day of the season the Dodgers beat the Dbacks 3-2, behind a strong pitching performence by Chad Billingsley, and a two run home run by Kemp. also note that Ethier had a great game too going 4 for 4. Jamey Carroll who was managing the game picks up his first win as skipper.
The Dodgers have now won 12 out of 17 from AZ going into the final game tomorrow.

Billingsley countered Joe Saunders, and they both pitched well, with Bills pitching better.
Bills had a no hitter into the 6th inning, and was close to pitching a shutout, however he couldnt make it out of the 8th.

Bills went 7.1 strong allowing 2 runs off 4 hits walking 1 and striking out 9.

it was no score until the 5th inning when ethier singled, and then kemp crushed a monster home run into the left field pavillion. Kemp is having a strong finish, homering now in 4 straight games, and leading the team with 27.

the dodgers added one more run in the 6th, when Chris young misplayed and dropped a Big Rod long fy ball to the warning track in center, ruled an error, Bog Rod ended up at third, and scored on a Reed Johnson fly ball.

with the Dodgers up 3-0 Bills entered the 8th breezing along, but he ran out of gas.
after allowing a hit to Allen with 1 out, Bills allowed another single off of loneys glove, and also this a batter. Steven Drew ends up knocking in a run and knocking Bills out of the game in the 8th. Troncoso comes in and shcokingly does his job, getting Abreu to fly out to center, and striking out Johnson.

Jansen closed the door in the 9th as he struck out two of the final AZ hitters with the tying run at second for his 4th save of the season.

SD won again today beating the giants 4-2. with ATL losing again, the padres and braves are tied for the WC, and SD is 1 back of the giants. I will post later with all the tiebreaking scenerios! its going down to the final day.

Tomorrow afternoon the finale, Torre ausmus say goodbye, and we say goodbye until next april. see ya tomorrow dodger fans! go blue!
