Looks like rain …

… but then, it has been in the forecast for every game of this series, and we have yet to have so much as a delay. Even if it doesn’t rain, bring a jacket if you’re coming out, because it’s cold again. … Lost in the shuffle of last night’s furious late rally was the fact that Brad Penny actually pitched pretty well. The general consensus after the game was that he was being squeezed by plate umpire Joe West during that rough third inning — even though I really think the pitch that got Penny the most riled up, and the one that ultimately got Grady Little tossed, was low. That was the 2-1 pitch to Andy LaRoche that West called a ball. Penny wound up with a quality start (I hate that stat, but this WAS a quality start). If you got an early edition of today’s Daily News and read my running gamer, it was all about how Penny imploded in the third inning. But against the backdrop of his other five innings, it was good enough to keep the Dodgers in a game they eventually won.
