Broxton’s scoreless streak ends, but he wins

Jonathan Broxton coughed up a two-run lead in the ninth, and allowed his first earned run since April 11, but the Dodgers rallied for two in the 10th inning to beat the Phillies 5-3. Broxton got the win — and Ramon Troncoso picked up his second save with a scoreless 10th. Broxton had tossed 13 consecutive scoreless innings.

Overall, it was a decent series for the Dodgers’ bullpen, with four earned runs in nine innings. Are you satisfied with what you’ve seen out of the pen so far? Next up, a series against the offensively-mediocre Marlins, so the bullpen will get the chance to shine again.

    Just when I start to feel comfortable with a bullpen pitcher, he blows up, so no, I’m not satisfied. However, it’s nice to see the offense shake off the mental doldrums and play with some feeling!

    Was at the game today and it was a nailbiter, to the end esp with this team’s shaky bullpen. Thought for sure with the wind gusting to 20 mph that more home runs would be flying.

    The D’s offense is perking up. Shame Bills didn’t get the win. Broxton was supposedly getting squeezed on the two strike pitch to Ruiz, but I couldn’t see it where I was.

    The baserunning was outrageous today and Bowa was going nuts at 3B. What was Furcal thinking in the first inning when he broke for second and just froze?!?

    Nice to see Loney, Kemp and J. Martin bust out a bit. Still concerned about Eithier who is nose-diving without Manny. Very pleased to exact some revenge on Philly and head to Florida with a two game streak.

    That’s two wins the Broxton has cost Billz so far…
