Good night, sweet Giants. The Dodgers greeting a tired Tim Lincecum today almost as rudely as they did Brad Penny yesterday, combined with another Rockies win, has effectively killed San Francisco's playoff chances. Today's offensive heroes are all-of-a-sudden-but-not-really MVP candidate Andre Ethier (with a two-run homer, his 31st, in the third inning) and
Marlon Anderson Ronnie Belliard (with a two-run single in the fourth).
Randy Wolf gets his 11th win with six innings of two-run ball, the Kevorkian committee (Hong-Chih Kuo in the seventh, George Sherrill in the eighth and Jonathan Broxton in the ninth) puts the Giants down and keeps them there. Dodgers get their 90th win and are a season-high 30 games over .500. Oh, and the Nationals and Pirates await during the week. Here's to the opposite of sucking!
