Post-Game 67 Thread: What do Randy Wolf and a waffler have in common?

No decisions!

DODGERS 3, A's 2

Randy Wolf left the game with a one-run lead after throwing 87 pitches over six innings, but Rajai Davis* took advantage of some seventh-inning defensive confusion to tie the game and deprive Wolf of the win.

No matter, as pinch-hitter Mark Loretta knocked in James Loney in the bottom of the inning to give the Dodgers the lead, which the bullpen (Brent Leach, Ronald Belisario and Ramon Troncoso) AGAIN preserved.

This weekend the Dodgers venture into the unfriendly confines of Angel Stadium of Anaheim. We've got more interleague intrigue and Weaver vs. Weaver. Should be interesting, if not actually fun.

After the game, home run-hitter Orlando Hudson gave the team some pointers:

*His first name means "king" in Sanskrit!

Fun? Good God, no! Anything but that.

It'll be nice to see Mitch jones get his first start as dh this next series. Hopefully we can keep the not losing a series streak going.

Maybe JP's performance on Nomars single tonight will earn Mitch a start tomorrow

This is a perfect example of why wins and saves are bad statistics. Leach: 2 pitches, earns the win. Troncoso: 2 pitches, earns the save.

Watching Orlando Hudson go through the line congratulating his team mates and commending those who made big plays (Loretta) was a thing of beauty.

Hudson basically made the win possible with his HR and yet he's out there patting everyone else on the back. I like this guy more and more every day!

I hope Mitch Jones gets a chance to show off his power; that guy can be a monster at times!

Great game last night. Looking forward to another good one on Saturday since I'll be at the Big A in my Dodger Blue.

I still think Rajai missed 3B.
