Thank Josh S for the headline...but thank Ted Lilly for eight innings of one-run ball, earning the Dodgers the win and punching the Rockies' slim playoff hopes in the gut. Why we couldn't have done this to the Giants, i don't know, but I'll take it. Ubaldo Jimenez remains stuck on 19 wins thanks to two RBI from Casey Blake (a bases-loaded single off of Jimenez' body) and another RBI from A.J. Ellis (now batting .278).
The Padres just lost to the Cubs 1-0 with the bases loaded and two out in the ninth. San Diego falls a full game back of the Giants in the NL West (and a half-game behind the Braves for the NL Wild Card), with six to play. Crunch time in the NL West! Just not for the Dodgers.
