Pirates 7, Dodgers 5

Those two runs Billingsley gave up in the seventh proved to be the difference. Or, the two unearned runs that resulted from the three errors proved to be the difference. Or the eight runners the Dodgers left on base, four of them in scoring position, proved to be the difference. PIck whatever reason you want. The boys rallied for two in the eighth to pull within two, but their ninth-inning rally fell short when Jeff Kent, capping an 0-for-5 day, grounded to third with runners on first and second. Dodgers fall to 13-6, but keep their two-game lead over the Pads. Not sure if I’ll post on the off-day, but I’ll try.
