Beating The Dregs: Dodgers 3, Nationals 2

I suppose this means that Nomar's eating his Wheaties, what with his two RBIs; maybe that qualifies as a gift, but given the Nats, perhaps not. The Dodgers really didn't do much until the sixth, and busted through against starter John Lannan, the team's de facto ace in the absence of John Patterson, formerly the team's number one, yet released after injuries in spring training killed his effectiveness; the Rangers picked him up and he got cut from that pitching-deprived team, too.

Anyway, the Dodgers managed two on Nomar's RBI single and a scoring groundout by James Loney, and that was it, pretty much. Chad Billingsley somehow managed to avoid the too-many-pitches disease, and was one out away from finishing the eighth inning when he lost it and Torre called Broxton in to slam the door. He pitched an uneventful ninth to get the Dodgers to within two games under .500; but the Snakes won 10-2 over a hapless Giants team to get them back to .500 and keep pace.
