Manufacturing a lead

Dodgers got a run in the second when Loney doubled with one out and took third when the ball skipped away from Brian Giles in the corner for an error, then scored on Russell Martin’s grounder to second on a 3-0 pitch. They got another run in the third when Furcal singled with one out, stole second and scored on Pierre’s single. What would have been a close play at the plate was foiled when Terrmel Sledge bobbled the ball in left field. Billingsley has been an adventure so far, and seems to be falling into old habits of deep pitch counts, but he hasn’t given up a run yet. Khalil Greene on second now with none out. … Dodgers 2, Padres 0, top 4
