Terrific outing by Ted Lilly in his Dodgers debut!
Already a victim of the major’s worst run support, Lilly gave L.A. exactly what they were looking for: an ace-like performance of seven innings, one-run, two-hit baseball against the team running away with the division.
The Dodgers’ 2-1 win over San Diego snaps a six-game losing streak and keeps L.A. in the division hunt another day (eight-games back).
In four starts since the All Star break Lilly has an ERA less than 2.00 with 29 strikeouts vs. five walks.
If the Dodgers keep its current rotation, Lilly (4-8) has 11 more scheduled starts down the stretch, inlcuding the season finale on Sunday, October 3 against Arizona.
