Dodgers 7, Brewers 2

Gary Bennett found out 15 minutes before game time that he was starting. He then proceeded to hit a three-run homer off Ben Sheets, his first since last September and his first three RBI of the season, and followed that up with an RBI double off Mitch Stetter in the ninth. Chad Billingsley’s pitching line was almost a carbon copy of the one he put up at Florida on April 30, when the Dodgers won 13-1. Just like that game, he pitched seven innings, giving up one run earned on three hits with four walks. The only difference was the strikeouts, as he had eight that day and five this time. Even his pitch count was almost identical, 107 in that game and 105 in this one. But that’s just a statistical oddity. The main thing was, he dominated in both games, and he appears to be blossoming now into the pitcher Dodgers officials always knew he could be. … Dodgers go to 21-19. Snakes host the Rockies tonight.

    Billingsley’s the type of pitcher who could pitch a no-no or two in his career. While I worry about his control, he has all the talent in the world. Same can be said about Broxton by the way.
