No Depression: Giants 8, Dodgers 4
Vicente Padilla failed to make the quality start low bar, and the Dodgers brought in a motley arrangement of relievers thereafter, including an odd choice to have Chad Billingsley take the mound. Bills fared no better than he had as a starter in late games, giving up a pair of runs on Aaron Rowand's solo homer in the eighth, and a Juan Uribe RBI single in the ninth. Charley Steiner kept talking about how lost he looked on the mound, and the box score certainly reflects that.
