Dodgers 10, Astros 2

The Dodgers almost had their first complete game shutout of the season until Billingsley gave up a two-out single to Mike Lamb in the ninth, followed by a two-run homer by Luke Scott. Still, Bills managed to pitch the club’s fourth CG of the year, and the first by anyone other than D-Lowe. This could be the start of something very special for Billingsley. Jeff Kent went 4 for 4 with two doubles, the first of which was career No. 524, moving him past Willie Mays and into second place on the all-time career doubles list. Loney went yard in the eighth, a three-run jack that capped the scoring. Nomar went 3 for 5 and is on an 8-for-18 tear. The Dodgers reached the 100-game mark at 56-44, nine games better than last year’s 47-53, after which they went 41-21 the rest of the way. Pods are leading the Rockies 4-1 in the fifth inning.
