Remember, Jason Marquis, the cheater? Well, I guess he didn't do all that well, leaving the game tied at 2 after six innings of work (same for Dodgers starter Stephen Fife).
But the Dodgers' pen certainly couldn't cheat fate, yielding two runs in the seventh (Matt Guerrier, 0.0 IP, 2 H, 2 ER) and eighth (Peter Moylan, 1.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER; due to a Pedro Ciriaco 2-run HR).
The ninth inning got interesting: A.J. Ellis added a solo shot in the ninth to make it 6-3, then Mark Ellis and Jerry Hairston singled. But tying run Skip Schumaker promptly GIDPd, and Yasiel Puig struck out to end the game.
Puig did have a 406-foot solo HR on the first pitch he saw in the first inning. But his AB in the third and fifth, both Ks swinging, looked horrible; Puig ended 1-for-5 with 3 Ks.
All that "momentum" following a 6-0 win over the Yankees yesterday? Gone. Guess I'm going to have to take matters in my own hands tomorrow...
