That Brad Penny Shows Up: Dodgers 12, Giants 1

The Dodgers finally caught up to Brad Penny, finding the same guy who got released by the Red Sox, annihilating him for seven runs over 2.2 innings, including a grand slam by Ronnie Belliard, of all people. In all, the Dodgers collected four homers, including one by Blake DeWitt, and one by James Loney, his first shot at home of the year, incredibly. Combined with a 10-4 Rockies blowout over the Snakes, that leaves the Dodgers with a five game lead over the Rocks, and the Rocks 3.5 games up over San Francisco.

The dodgers.com recap mentions that starter Jon Garland and Ronnie Belliard could both be getting postseason starts over Chad Billingsley and Orlando Hudson respectively, and given the way the latter have played lately, that doesn't sound like a bad idea at all. Especially so, considering how lost Bills appeared to be in Friday's game. The current chatter is that his mechanics are what's screwing him up, but given his age and the fact that this is only the second time in his career he's pitched more than 150 innings, I'm inclined to cut him some slack.
