The Dodgers won 2-1 Friday afternoon, to tie their series up against the Phillies, 1 to 1. The Dodgers came from behind, scoring 2 runs in the 8th inning, off of five Phillies relievers. Chet Utley, made the key error on an easy double play ball, that led to the two runs.
Pedro Martinez pitched seven shutout innings, yielding just two hits. Not bad. Mets fans can't be happy about that. Remember, that Pedro has pitched so little this year, that he hasn't been subject to the daily wear and tear of a long season that often leads to injuries.
Andre Ethier walked with the bases loaded to score Russell Martin with the winning run.
The Phillies outscored the Dodgers 8-6 on Thursday night. The forecast was for a pitchers duel, but a HR hitting contest broke out in the 5th inning. Carlos Ruiz and Raul Ibanez each hit 3 run HR for the Phillies. James Loney and Manny Ramirez homered for the Dodgers. Neither starting pitcher, Cole Hamels nor Clayton Kershaw survived past the 5th inning.
Saturday is an off day. The series continues in Philadelphia for three games on Sunday, Monday and Wednesday.
