Another Day, Another (Almost-)Perfecto: Dodgers 2, Braves 1
All that's too bad, really, because Derek Lowe flirted with a perfect game through six, but gave up a leadoff hit in the top of the seventh. I missed all of the good part; and as Jon observed, the Dodgers have allowed six hits total in the last three games. Pitching hardly gets better than that.
Thanks to a 5-0 Arizona loss to Washington (helped in part by a former Dodger farmhand, pitcher Joel Hanrahan), the Dodgers are once again tied for first place — though still below .500.
