Hong-Chih Kuo can thank his lucky stars for a ND tonight against the Giants. In the top of the 9th inning, the Dodgers tied the game 3-3 on Olmedo Saenz's pinch hit RBI. Kuo only lasted 5 innings tonight, giving up 3 runs on 8 hits. He also had no walks and 6 K's. Down 3-0 and with the opposing pitcher dominating the Dodgers lineup, it looked like a sure loss for Kuo. But thankfully, JD Drew cracked a 2 run shot and Saenz's heroics lifted Kuo off the hook. The bright spot tonight for Kuo was K'ing Barry Bonds twice: once on a beautiful curve ball and the second time on an offspeed pitch. Kuo was clocked around 90 to 94 mph on his heater tonight. As I type, the Dodgers are now up 4-3 heading into the bottom of the 9th. This is a huge game for the Dodgers playoff aspirations: if they win, they catch up to the Padres for the NL West lead and maintain their wildcard lead on the Phillies.
Chin-Feng Chen jacked his 21st HR of the season against the Elephants in his team's 8-4 loss today. Chen trails Chang by 1 in the HR department.
Pitcher En-Yu Lin of the Cobras experienced right elbow pain in his last outing on Wednesday. Hopefully nothing serious here.
