Dodgers Face Elimination After Game Two Loss to Mets

by @ 2:08 am. Filed under 2006 NLDS

Talk about a must win situation.  The Dodgers back’s are against the wall now and they’ll need to win three straight games to move on to the NLDS.  The Dodgers never got their bats going in this one and it cost them dearly.

Hong Chih Kuo gave up only four hits in 4 1/3 innings but he walked two and gave up two runs.  Bret Tomko didn’t fare much better and after getting only two outs, he left the game with two runs to his credit.  Wilson Betemit hit a solo homerun late in the game, but the Dodgers never really could string together a big inning, regardless of who was throwing for the Mets.

Now, it’ll be up to Greg Maddux on Saturday to keep the Dodgers’ season going.  He’ll go head to head with Steve Trachsel.

Dodgers Drop Game One In Tight Game to Mets

by @ 4:43 pm. Filed under 2006 NLDS

Almost only counts in horseshoes and hand gernades and the Dodgers almost pulled this one out.  They jumped out to an early lead, gave it up, came back, gave it up again and almost came back again.  They’ll just have to get the job done tomorrow.

Derek Lowe didn’t have his best stuff and he gave up four runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.  Brad Penny actually took the loss because he gave up those final two runs that ended up making the difference.

Nomar Garciaparra drove in two runs and Wilson Betemit scored twice.  The lineup did strikeout twelve times, three of which were done by Kenny Lofton.

Tomorrow, it’ll be Kuo versus Tom Glavine.  Hong-Chih needs to get it done tomorrow if the Dodgers are going to have a chance to move on.
