This just in: 16 singles > 11 walks.
The Dodgers continue to get it done without power. Their 16 singles, many of the seeing-eye variety, easily compensated for their generous pitching staff, which handed out more free passes than those annoying preview screening recruiters on the Santa Monica Promenade.
The Dodgers' one- through eight-hitters went absolutely batty, going 19-for-42. Pierre, Matt Kemp and Juan Castro (!) had three RBIs each. Jamie Hoffmann continues to impress, following his first major league home run yesterday with a double and two RBIs today, although he also stranded four baserunners.
Will Ohman, Ronald Belisario and Guillermo Mota cleaned up the mess made by starter Eric Stults and Jeff Weaver. The bullpen will be a key component in tomorrow's game, as Eric Milton is scheduled to make only his second start in the last two years. Milton threw 84 pitches over four innings and allowed two runs to Florida in his first start.
