Dodgers 3, Red Sox 1

Rafael Furcal went 3 for 4, raising his average to .385. Chad Billingsley pitched five superb innings, allowing a run on two hits with seven strikeouts and three walks. The boys scored two in the eighth to break a 1-1 tie, Mark Sweeney driving home Andre Ethier with the winner with an RBI double. James Loney plated Sweeney with a single. Joe Beimel, Ramon Troncoso, Scott Proctor and Jonathan Broxton held the Sox to one hit over the final four innings. Dodgers go to 10-17-4 for the spring. … And they just dimmed the lights at 10:54 p.m. Good. I was getting a headache.
