Beating The Dregs: Dodgers 3, Nationals 2
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.
