Dodgers Drop Third Straight to Phils, In Danger of Sweep

by @ 7:31 am. Filed under 2008 Dodgers

The Dodgers held a slim one-run lead going into the ninth but the Phillies scored one to send it to extras before a three-run walkoff gave them the win.

The Dodgers tallied 13 hits, and with only scoring two runs, that means too many men left on base…including the 10th with the bases loaded and nobody out. They also left the bases loaded in the first after scoring just one run to take the lead. The Phils tied it in the fifth before the Dodgers took the lead in the seventh. Jeff Kent was 3 for 5 with an RBI and and James Loney also drove in a run and went 2 for 5.

Hiroki Kuroda was phenomonal through six, giving up just one run on two hits with five strikeouts. He let the Phillies tie with a run in the sixth, but he left in line for the win after the Dodgers took the lead in the seventh. Chan Ho Park and Hong-Chich Kuo each pitched an inning and held the Phillies scoreless before Broxton came on to close out the ninth and got the blown save after surrendering a two-out RBI-single. Joe Beimel was tagged for the loss, his first in almost a year, after he put a man on and Jason Johnson gave up a three-run homerun to Pedro Feliz, who had tied it in the ninth with his RBI-single.

The Dodgers are now at .500 and look to avoid the sweep today, sending Chad Billingsley to the mound to face Brett Myers, who is 6-10 with a 4.71 ERA but has a 1.94 ERA in his last six starts since coming off the DL.

    So, what is the deal with Maddox. Is he washed up or what?
