Bills vetos Washington, Dodgers win series

Nationals 1  2 0
Dodgers   3  5 0

you know that saying I am my own worst enemy? Chad Billingsley must know that saying well, as he almost single handedly beat himself by loading the bases with no outs in the first inning, but he would settle down and dominate the Nats through 7 innings of 1 run ball, as the Dodgers beatWashington 3-1
as Bills picks up his 9th win.
Bills fillibustered his way to a win

Aaron Miles drove in two runs with a two knock single, and Javy Guerra picked up his 7th save tying the team lead.

in the top of the first inning, Bills looked terrible. we all thought it was going to be a blowup. Bernadina walked, then Espinoza was hit by a pitch. Zimmerman's single loaded the bases with none out. Morse follows with a single to left, scoring bernadina, everyone moves up 90 feet. Bills is flustered angry. he then proceeds to strike out the next three hitters. Werthless, Ankiel and Flores all whiff. the Nationals would not be heard from again today.

the Dodgers come back and score two runs right away in the first inning. with 1 out, Furcal a groundball single to right, Ethier grounds into a force out at second, kemp singles Ethier to second. Miles ropes a two run knock to center, Ethier and Kemp both score, with Miles taking second on a bad throw. 2-1 Dodgers :)
Bills strikes out Bernadina and marquis in the second inning.

Kemp scores on Miles two run single in the first inning.

Bison slides in safe

bottom of the second has Carroll walking and stealing second, but hes left stranded as Bills and Gwynn both ground out.

Bills has another 123 inning in the third.

the Dodgers would score one more run, thanks to some completly inept Washington defense.
Furcal walks and steals second, Dre strikes out. Kemp beats out his little infield dribbler by a step first and third with 1 out.  Miles walks to load the bases. Loney hits a grounder to short that was a taylor made double play. Washington gets the out at second, but Miles take out slide prevents Washington from getting the double play they needed to get out of the inning. Furcal scores on the force play, Kemp to third, and Loney safe at first. 3-1 Dodgers. this inability to turn the double play would cost the Nationals dearly.
they would get out of this inning preventing further damage, after fatty walked, Carroll grounds out.

Bills walks Werthless, but strikes out Ankiel and Flores and gets through the 4th.

in the bottom of the 4th, the Dodgers would Leave Gwynn at second, after he bunts for a hit, and steals second. his hit was really just more of Washington being unable to play defense.

Bills pitches another 123 inning in the 5th, with the Dodgers still up 3-1, Bills is cruising.

the Dodgers also go down 123 in the bottom of the 5th, with Marquis still in the game.

Bills pitches anotther 123 in the 6th. Zimmerman grounds back to the box, Morse strikes out, and Werthless flies out.

the Dodgers go down 123 in the bottom of the 6th. in Bills last inning of work he strikes out Ankiel for his 10th strike out. he tosses another 123 inning. since the first inning, the Nationals only had one baserunner against Bills.

Burnett comes in to replace Marquis, and throws a scoreless frame.

top of the 8th with the Dodgers up 3-1, Jansen comes in from the bullpen. Bills was able to go to the mound to begin the inning, then left to a standing ovation. he earned it, great job!
bills goes 7 innings, allowing only 1 run on 2 hits, walking two and striking out 10

Jansen pitches a scoreless 8th. striking out old friend Alex Cora, (fondly remembered for his 18 pitch homerun for the dodgers several years ago).

Coffey pitches the bottom of the 8th for the Nats, allows a loney walk, but thats it.

move to the top of the 9th. Javy (ice man) Guerra comes in to save it. Zimmerman strikes out, Morse flies out, and Werthless strikes out to end the game. the Dodgers get a rare weekend of winning! two straight wins, and the Dodgers pick up the series victory. good job boys!

we now will have to deal with the bastards of Colorado. although without Cargo, as he is on the DL.
Colorado comes in for a three game series, so well just have to deal with Mullet man, and helton.
tomorrow night's game is on at 710 on PT. Rubby De La Rosa will take the mound for the Dodgers, while Colorado will counter with Nicasio.
join us for tomorrow night Dodger fans. have a great sunday! GO BLUE!
