Caught in a tangled Webb

The Dodgers just blew a scoring chance after Ethier led off the third with a double, breaking up Brandon Webb’s perfect game. Lieberthal struck out, and after Wolf’s grounder to the right side moved Ethier up and Furcal walked, Pierre grounded back to the mound. Dodgers are now 0 for 3 with RISP, and you wonder how many more RISPs they are going to get on a night when Webb appears to be in Cy Young form. Webb has a 3.91 ground ball-to-fly ball ratio since the start of 2002, the best in the majors during that span. Of the six outs he has recorded tonight, six have come on the ground. The National League West’s OTHER Chris Young hit Randy Wolf’s second pitch of the game just over the wall in right-center, and the Snakes have runners on first and second with none out now. D-backs 1, Dodgers 0, bottom 4
